I know we’re being bias, but this was by FAR the best wedding we’ve ever been too! Years later and our family and friends still talk about it. From the beautiful scenery, the charming cabins, and the kindest hosts… This was an incredible wedding destination.
From the moment we visited the venue to the day after our wedding; it all felt like such a dream. Urs and Diane, such a power couple. They were helpful and accommodating with dietary restrictions and special wedding requests. Their team were professional and gracious.
Steph and I loved that we got to stay for a couple of nights prior to the wedding celebration, and we got to relax, be fed and enjoy the beauty of this place without any of the wedding stress.
Urs has a true talent when it comes to creating food. He out did himself with the canapes for the cocktail hour, the first course, the entrees and the midnight snacks. Everything was phenomenal!
Diane, and her team went above and beyond with the wedding decor. Diane listened to our vision and made our dream wedding venue a reality. It was beyond what we had imagined.
Booking our wedding venue here was the best decision; we put our phones away, enjoyed the peace and tranquility that Auld Reekie Lodge had to offer, and we got to enjoy our entire wedding weekend. We plan on going to Auld Reekie Lodge every year for our wedding anniversary.

Urs & Diane are my parents, so I would of course have a biased view of how awesome they are. But I'm going to tell you anyways!
Auld Reekie is a big part of my life and my husband's too. He asked me to marry him on one of our favorite back lakes, so when it came time to pick a venue, we couldn't imagine being married anywhere else!
Mom and Dad were immediately 100% on board and started planning and building.
They thought of everything. I found wedding planning to be overwhelming, but they made everything so simple!
As I said, my review is bias, so the best testimonial I can give is to share reviews from my guests at the wedding who still boast about our wedding more than 2 years after:
- "The nicest wedding I've been to in years!"
- "The decorations were stunning. The flowers were all so beautiful and all the vintage touches were unique!"
- "The FOOD! OMG, best meal I've ever had and in a tent! You would think we were in a 5 star restaurant with the kitchen just a few feet away!"
- "Even the night before at the rehearsal dinner, we had a blast around the fire until 4 in the morning!"
- "Cottages were amazing, so comfortable. It was nice to be able to drink without worrying about driving home. And to be able to grab a sweater or change in the evening was a bonus!"
- "The whole weekend was just a blast!"
- "Best Wedding Ever!"
"Thank you Mom and Dad for the giving us the most memorable wedding for our guests as well as for us. You really outdid yourselves!"

Thank you Auld Reekie Lodge for making our special day so memorable!
We are a couple that were both raised in the Northern Ontario outdoors and now enjoy our lives together sharing hunting and fishing adventures. This venue represented us perfectly, located on the shores of a beautiful lake, a remote feeling, but not too far for guests. The amenities for us and our guests were cottage/rustic like but also very comfortable and accommodating.
The fact that our family and friends were able to spend time with us before and after our wedding made it feel like a getaway resort. Not to mention the great treatment from Diane, Urs and their staff, whom made every little details come together for the entire weekend. From daily meals, wedding prep/decor, wedding meals (which was 5 stars), wedding cake, even a fish fry the day after, we could go on and on, but they covered all the bases and made it basically stress free for us.
Furthermore, we were very pleased to return for our 1 year anniversary complimentary stay, where we were once again greeted with smiles. We got to eat great food, drinks, relax and enjoy the endless trails for bird hunting.
Needless to say that if you are looking for an all inclusive wedding venue, and a wonderful time, Auld Reekie Lodge is the place for you!
