Testimonials

Mr. & Mrs. Nel­son

Lesner Hall & Sun­set Deck

Cayleen,
From the begin­ning you were absolutely amaz­ing. Through all of the changes I made you were so kind. I just want to thank you for mak­ing our day amazing.

Mr. & Mrs. RouLaine

Lesner Hall & Sun­set Deck

What a beau­ti­ful venue! Our wed­ding at the Lesner Inn was absolutely per­fect. Cayleen and Alexis are just amaz­ing. True pro­fes­sion­als with an eye for detail. Every­thing was taken care of beau­ti­fully. We couldn’t have asked for bet­ter peo­ple or bet­ter views on our spe­cial day.

Mr. & Mrs. Jurko

Lesner Hall & Sun­set Deck

I could NOT be hap­pier with the ser­vice from Lesner Inn. Our coor­di­na­tor Liz was SO help­ful each time we met with her and had ques­tions. The cer­e­mony and recep­tions spaces were absolutely beau­ti­ful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would rec­om­mend this venue to anyone!

Mr. & Mrs. Sirois

Water­side Deck

I don’t think I can truly describe how much my hus­band and I enjoyed hav­ing our wed­ding cer­e­mony at the Lesner Inn. I looked at and researched sev­eral places, but after my first con­ver­sa­tion with Eliz­a­beth, I already knew the venue was going to be per­fect for us. It began when they were able to work with me on very short notice. Eliz­a­beth made me feel com­pletely relaxed about the process, not even con­cerned that time was short. She fully explained all my options and was very patient, even when I made changes along the way. The amount of ser­vices Lesner Inn pro­vided made plan­ning this wed­ding almost stress free for me. The loca­tions was beau­ti­ful and sim­ple in a per­fect way. It truly was the right loca­tion and size for my close fam­ily and friends. Even my hus­band has com­mented on it sev­eral times since then. He isn’t want to have an opin­ion on these things and yet he has expressed how much he liked it over and over. He absolutely loved the loca­tion and had so much fun. Know­ing he truly loved it makes me even hap­pier about my choice. Thank you Eliz­a­beth, and the staff at Lesner Inn. It was an expe­ri­ence bet­ter than I ever could have hoped for!

Mr. & Mrs. Williams

Water­side Deck

The Lesner Inn was a phe­nom­e­nal venue to have Kayla and I’s wed­ding. The cus­tomer ser­vice was top notch. Cayleen helped Kayla and I through the whole process. I remem­ber the night of the wed­ding I asked Cayleen sev­eral times what I could do to help and she told me I should just relax and have fun because she was cov­er­ing every­thing. She was cor­rect. She han­dled every extremely pro­fes­sion­ally.
We used sev­eral of the ven­dors rec­om­mended by the Lesner Inn and they all per­formed very well. It was an excel­lent evening. I rec­om­mend the Lesner Inn and specif­i­cally Cayleen highly to cou­ples look­ing for a gor­geous venue and an incred­i­bly mem­o­rable evening.
Thank you!

Mr. & Mrs. John­son

Entire Venue

Work­ing with Lind­sey and the Lesner Inn was great! I planned the major­ity of my wed­ding from out of town and Lind­sey could not have been more patient with my con­stant emails. The venue looked beau­ti­ful at the recep­tion and my guests loved the views and the food. The crab cakes were everyone’s favorite. Thank you so much to the Lesner Inn team and & Lind­sey for such a beau­ti­ful wedding!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!
