  • What a beautiful day and what a beautiful venue! Our guests still rave about how fun the Lake Elsie Wedding Barn was for our wedding. The Barn has characteristic details that you won't get anywhere else. From the original brick walls, to the silo, to the tulle on the ceiling, it all ties together, pairing elegance with rustic charm. The crystal chandeliers and cafe lighting illuminate the Barn with a romantic glow. Beyond its beauty, the owners get an A+!! Marshall and Sandy were there at our beck and call to help move things, serve wine, and assure everything was flowing according to plan. We were so relaxed on our wedding day because of their attention to detail. In the planning process, Sandy walked us through our whole weekend -- from Friday night rehearsal to Saturday night last call -- we walked through it together and were able to envision our entire weekend before it played out. This was extremely helpful for my "type A" personality; we were all on the same page and the details... Read more

    Thank you for selecting us for your memorable wedding. We enjoyed working with both of you and both sets of parents. Making your signature drink was so much fun, glad it was a hit with your guests. Thank you for all the wonderful complements. Many happy years together. Sandy and Marshall

  • The Lake Elsie Wedding Barn and Lady on the Lake B&B are hidden gems of North Dakota. We just wrapped up a wonderful wedding weekend and couldn’t be happier. Many thanks to Sandy, Robin and the entire team. Sandy and Marshall have recently made a considerable investment in the pavilion tent, the paved surface, and surrounding landscape. This worked well for dinner, even with a brisk April day. The dance upstairs in the barn was so much fun. Many memories made last weekend! Brian and I hope to return again, next time to relax and enjoy more of Sandy’s cooking. Maybe I’ll get that scalloped potato recipe out of her yet! 😉

    It was a pleasure having you here. You have such a talent with floral arrangement, you just transformed our wedding pavilion. You were a joy to work with. We were happy to caterer for your grooms meal so glad you liked the scalloped potatoes.

  • The Lake Elsie Wedding Barn was the perfect choice for us! They had several packages to choose from each with different services and prices. Sandy was always very prompt with retuning emails or calls about any questions I had. She was like a wedding coordinator for me! The barn is beautiful and comes with some of its own decorations already set up. Sandy also has a variety of decorations for you to use rather than buying or renting some! Sandy and Marshall were both very attentive and really made me feel like they wanted me to have the best of everything!

    Lake Elsie Wedding Barn commented...posted 10/14/2020 Thank you so much for selecting us for your beautiful wedding. I just loved your Ritzy and Rustic style of decorating. Beautiful. We enjoyed being your wedding cordinator. Hats of to your mom and Al for putting on a great meal in our venue kitchen. Your mom is the best. We all had a great laugh when Marshall brought out the leaf blower to blow the dry floweres from everyone's hair after the ceremony. Thank you again for the opportunity to be your host and selecting Lake Elsie Wedding Barn for the most important day of your life. Sandy and Marshall

    Thank you for selecting Lake Elsie Wedding Barn. We enjoyed being part of you and Koltin's wedding weekend. Getting to know all parents was memorable. What a great idea for the bridal party to have pontoon rides at the lake side venue. Many happy years.

    Thank you so much Kelsey. So glad your day was great and Lake Elsie Wedding Barn worked so well for you and your familiy and friends. The use of the kitchen, providing your own food really helped you save instead of hiring a caterer. Thank you again for selecting us for your beautiful day.Sandy

  • This venue was everything and more! Sandy and Marshall are remarkable hosts. I can not say enough about how amazing our experience was! From the first initial email to the follow up, it was all on point. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and the hospitality of everyone who worked our wedding. We will definitely be back to enjoy the gorgeous B&B!

  • This venue is absolutely amazing! The price was perfect and they have everything you could ask for and many things I didn't even know I needed! Marshall and Sandy were so kind and helpful! They were very flexible when it rained and we had the wedding inside last minute! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding at a more beautiful and perfect place!

  • It would have been a perfect venue for us, if it weren't for COVID. My husband and I were long distance with our families in Kansas and Pennsylvania. We couldn't find a place that would accommodate our wedding party for a while weekend in either of our home towns, but this place had it all. We chose the Rhodium package and it included just about everything except the caterer for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The bed and breakfast on property is beautiful! The owners also have an inn in town which we were going to rent out for the weekend as well. They have a safe shuttle that will transport your guests all weekend! They offer some decorations and outdoor activities like kayaking as well. Sandy and Marshall were very sweet and when we took a tour, she made us lunch! If you're looking for a weekend escape with everything included for your wedding, please consider Lake Elsie Wedding Barn (formerly Colonel Hankinson).

    Thank you so much Deidre. It was a pleasure working with you. You had a beautiful wedding planned. We wish you lots of happiness and please stop in for a visit.

  • Beautiful place and budget friendly. However, owners lack communication, organization, and professionalism. They refuse to take responsibility for mistakes and the customer is always wrong. She says she prefers email communication since she has a hearing impairment but even through email she couldn't keep things straight. Their contract was one page when we booked and when asked for a copy it turned into 9 pages. Come to find out it was a 2 year old contract and they hadn't written an updated one yet. We discussed who was staying at the B&B each of the 4 in person visits we made but she never wrote anything down so she ended up booking 6 couples (some of our guests found the B&B on google and we were unaware they called about rooms because the owners never contacted us about it) into 4 rooms and then told me I had to fix it. We were told numerous times if our wedding party stays at the Inn in Hankinson (which they did) they would receive muffins, toast, and juice in the morning. That w... Read more

    We are sorry we did not meet your expectations. Being a women in business and having a hearing problem has been my greatest challenge. I'm actively working with any and all new technology for hearing aids. I have made great strides. We wish the best to both of you. Thank you for choosing us. Sandy and Marshall
