  • Solitude Links is an absolutely beautiful venue! I knew it was the venue for my husband and I the day I went there. It even rained all day on our wedding but all of our pictures turned out amazing, Solitude has multiple covered areas that still display the lakes and cabin feel! Jennifer and her team also did an amazing job from the beginning when we signed and throughout the entire process. She is down to earth and makes you feel like a princess...and not to mention also goes along with any craziness and hurdles planning brings along. Her staff were the kindest most funny people as well, you could tell they truly enjoy there jobs! The food was also served right on time and I am still hearing from family and friends of how amazing everything tasted! I would definitely recommend this venue. The staff and venue made my day a dream come true!!!

  • My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Solitude Links on 10/27/2017. We could not be happier with our experience and would highly recommend this venue to anyone. The venue captured the rustic, yet classic atmosphere that we were hoping for and was able to accommodate our 260 guests. We got married in late October, so our outdoor ceremony in the gazebo was up in the air based on weather. We were given options to move inside and reassured that it would be just as beautiful. I was well informed on the wedding day on how the weather was looking and we managed to get the ceremony in before the cold, rain. The venue itself is beautiful and the grounds are perfect in the fall for photos. We used both the Harmony and Tranquility Hall to accommodate our larger wedding. The space did not feel cramped at all. The pretzel encrusted chicken and filet mignon were a hit with our guests. The food was hot and very tasty! The apples slices, cider and donuts were also the perfect late... Read more

  • My wife and I had our wedding reception at Solitude Links on September 16th, 2017. The venue was perfect in every way. The banquet hall overlooks an amazing landscape including ponds, a waterfall, trees, and more. Inside and out, the venue was better than we ever could have expected. The log cabin style rustic theme was very unique and fit our styles perfectly. The venue supplied an up north feel without being too far from home. Personally, my favorite part about solitude was the giant deck overlooking the golf course. No other venue we looked at had that bonus feature. The deck has multiple fire places and outdoor furniture, which was heavily utilized by our guests throughout the reception. The fireplaces and deck made for a perfect atmosphere, especially at night. The food was also second to none, in my opinion. Dozens of our guests came up to my wife and I throughout the night and expressed how the food was the best that they have ever had at a wedding. Solitude's staff also did an ... Read more

  • Just recently had our wedding here at this venue and we are beyond happy with our decision to have solitude be the choice for our ceremony and reception. You can not ask for a better view and scenery. The reception hall was awesome and the staff was super friendly. The coordinators Jennifer and Nicole were the best to work with, they made every single minute of the process enjoyable and always kept us at ease. We highly recommend this venue for anyone.

  • My husband and I got married at Solitude Links in June and are still in awe at how perfect of a day it was. The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous, the Grand Hall was immaculate, and our guests really enjoyed sitting on the balcony by the fireplaces in the evening. Nothing beats the views that Solitude Links has to offer. In addition to the absolutely beautiful space, our guests RAVED about how great the food was. We had the filet mignon, poached salmon, Tuscan chicken, and cheese tortellini and we received excecellent reviews on each dish from our guests. Solitude Links really surpassed all of our expectations and we would highly recommend it to anyone!

  • Solitude Links staff were extremely helpful! If you have a vision of what you want during your ceremony, or at your reception, always ask Jennifer. Her and the team are accommodating, go the extra mile, and help everything run smoothly throughout the planning process. My husband and I were blown away on the quality of service and how beautiful the ceremony and reception was set up. Thank you Solitude Links for making our wedding day flawless!

  • We just had our wedding on August 12, 2017. Everything was absolutely gorgeous scenery there is amazing for pictures. The food is so delicious and the servers there are amazing always on top of things. However, we were super disappointed overall! We were promised a stress free day and it was the complete opposite! I understand sometimes things go wrong, but the amount of stuff that went wrong for is was unacceptable for how much we paid! First off, I had asked for my bubbles to be set out at the ceremony for the guests they were not. The girls who worked there did not give the guys there boutineers so that was a waste of money and they were right next to the bouquets which they would have forgotten if I didn't say something. The candles we wanted lit were not. Someone got escorted down that wasn't supposed to. My husband noticed that the chocolate fountain was already out before the ceremony even started and he was told they would keep it out all night. They did not do this. Half the p... Read more

    MaryKathryn, thank you so much for your review and informing us of your perceived issues. We are unable to improve or correct issues unless we get valuable feedback from our couples and guests. You are also correct, sometimes things do get missed and we are very sorry for any of the items you feel were not addressed. We are not perfect and strive to improve each and every event. Your ceremony was moved indoors because of mother nature; by bringing it indoors we cannot allow bubbles or any other slick liquid substances to land on the epoxy floor, as this would have created a slip and fall issue. Protecting your party and guests is our #1 priority. The chocolate fountain was put out in the exact location as the floor plan indicated, which was sent for your approval prior to your day. We have to put it in place early to adjust the temperature, level and make any additional adjustments necessary. Based on our camera feed, the fountain was out until 8:20pm. Not sure why you thought it would be out until 12 midnight, but if we gave you the wrong impression, we are sorry. Our banquet captain would have caught the liquor package before reception started, this is one of our pre-reception checks. Our liquor bottles have measured pourers and dispense the exact amount needed for the small size banquet glasses. This is why we do not use free pours. In regards to shots, same situation, guests safety is our #1 priority and this was conveyed to you during your site visit. Your complaint regarding the bartender is very unusual, it's possible your guests were giving her a hard time due to no shots being allowed and she got frustrated. After reviewing the camera's again, at 6:28pm there was a line and our banquet captain stepped in to help out immediately. After 15 minutes, the line subsided and there wasn't much of a line for the rest of the evening. We hope this acknowledges your issues and once again, if you feel we failed in any aspect, we are sincerely sorry.
