TripAdvisor Reviews

We eloped at Friends Lake Inn and our stay was incredible. The staff were friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. We didn’t have to worry or stress about any of the details of our wedding, as it was all taken care of.

We recently eloped at the Friends Lake Inn, and would like to thank the owners and staff for making our day, and stay so special. Everything was so well organized. The service provided by all was exceptional. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The flowers were beautiful, the cake was perfect , and the food was excellent.
