Destination Weddings at Sugar Lake

Tie the Knot Without Getting Tangled Up in the Details

The sparkling aquamarine waters of Sugar Lake and pristine Northwoods backdrop make Sugar Lake Lodge one of the top destination wedding venues in Minnesota. Our breathtaking outdoor event spaces and spacious indoor event rooms can accommodate large groups with ease, and our staff make sure you have everything you need on your big day.

We work directly with you on setting a date, room blocks, menu and bar selection, and all the other small, but important details! We offer in-house catering options or are happy to recommend experienced, local vendors who can provide everything you need to make your celebration personal and special to you.

Note: While we’d love to open our doors 24x7x365 to as many wedding events as possible, our wedding venue is only able to accommodate destination wedding events. We are not open to requests for hosting local wedding events.
