  • We looked at several venues but immediately fell in love with Lake Forest Country Club. With it's warm lighting and dark wood, it gave us the cozy but classy vibe we were going for. We were able to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one place which made it not only convenient for us but also for our guests. Stephanie Dickens is the even coordinator and we so enjoyed working with her. She was always available to answer questions and helped with so many little things that popped up on the day of the wedding. She definitely knows her stuff when it comes to weddings and was very focused on helping us make our wedding the experience we really wanted it to be. The food was exceptional and our guests had so many compliments about both the food and the venue. You won't be disappointed having your wedding at Lake Forest...promise!

  • Stephanie, her team and the club are absolutely AMAZING! Stephanie was attentive, kind and extremely helpful. Throughout our year and a half long wedding planning process Stephanie was always there to answer every single one of my questions and to reassure me that things would be handled. Even the day of our wedding Stephanie and her staff were so caring and always made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed so we did not have to lift a finger or leave our guests. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception at the club and each space (indoor and outdoor) was more breathtaking than the last! A big thing for my husband and I was to have great food and Lake Forest exceeded our expectations. The food made in house by the chef was delicious! While my husband and I greeted guests at dinner, the number one thing everyone said to us was how great the food was and how impressed they were with every plate. We utilized the beautiful and spacious get ready room on sit... Read more

  • We couldn't be happier about selecting to have both our ceremony and reception at Lake Forest. They have a beautiful outdoor space, but we actually fell in love with the indoor space even more. It looks like the inside of Beauty and the Beast's castle! I'm still getting compliments about the space and food! All of the food is delicious! But it was coordinator, Stephanie, that really made it worth it! She was a tremendous help, every step of the way. Especially since we were planning from Columbus. Stephanie was so quick to answer any questions I had, and every time we saw her in person I felt like I knew her for years! Every employee we encountered was so sweet. And on our wedding day, I was not worried about a single thing! I was actually able to relax in the beautiful bridal sweet. Our experience at Lake Forest was absolutely perfect!

  • We actually used Lake Forest for both our ceremony and reception. It is such a breathtakingly gorgeous venue. We had our ceremony outside overlooking the lake in October when the leaves had just starting changing colors. The cocktail hour was on the patio outside too. Both were beautiful at sunset.The reception was inside and spanned several rooms. The dark wood, fireplaces, and grand staircase were what sold me on the venue initially and were stunning in pictures. I was worried about booking a country club at first because I have heard from friends that they can be strict about their guidelines. Jennifer (the event coordinator at Lake Forest) could not have been more accommodating. I don't think anyone told us "no" once our entire wedding day. They even have a room upstairs for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. It is a huge and relaxing space that worked perfectly for my group. The food and wine were phenomenal. My husband and I are both foodies who appreciate fine cuisine. ... Read more

  • We booked our wedding with Lake Forest for August 28, 2015 after seeing the lake at sunset, the patio, and the large windows overlooking it all. (Prices for a Friday event were very reasonable - Saturday events have a minimum requirement that we couldn't meet with an intimate wedding of 60 people.) Jennifer Bachman became the Director of Events starting early in 2015. She was incredibly easy to work with, super flexible, accommodating, and made our wedding reception beautiful. I could not have asked for more. Several of our guests (including me) had dietary restrictions and allergies requiring specific changes to the menu. Jennifer was on top of all of these needs, starting with our tasting - which was superb - and she made sure each person had the right entree, offering different options so that we had no concerns. On the day of the event, we were very well taken care of. The server saw that my husband and I had to leave our plates to have pictures taken at sunset (gorgeous ov... Read more

  • Lake Forest Country Club is a beautiful wedding venue. The wedding coordinator, Bethany Boyd, was easy to work with and helped me feel at ease with all of the wedding day details. She met with us numerous times to make sure everything was set just the way we wanted and everything went as planned on our wedding day. Bethany was always quick to respond to all of our emails and flexible with times to meet with us. The staff at Lake Forest were very professional and they all helped make our day truly special. The food was delicious and all of our guests complimented everything from the beauty of the venue, to the food. Lake Forest Country Club was everything we could have ever wanted for our wedding reception. It was a perfect place for us and I would highly recommend it to other bride and grooms.

  • Lake Forest Country Club is and was the most wonderful venue for our daughter’s wedding reception. The wedding coordinator there, Beth Boyd is truly fantastic, as well, their professional staff! I hope I can put into words just how wonderful an experience we had! We booked Lake Forest Country Club almost one year in advance and we are so glad we did! I would highly recommend booking in advance or you take a chance on not getting having this exquisite venue. We had visited other venues – Signature of Solon and The Bertram to name a few; which were fine. However, nothing compares to the outer and inner beauty of Lake Forest Country Club. The outside gardens are magnificent! The array of flowers and colors are second to none! The manicured grounds, golf course, and lake add to complete one of the most beautiful landscapes you’ll ever find! Everywhere you look you’ll find beautiful backdrops for pictures. We also chose Lake Forest Country Club because of northeast Ohio... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at Lake Forest in May 2017 and we could not have asked for anything better!! Jennifer, the wedding coordinator, was really good at handling all the details so we didn't have to worry. Everything looked beautiful, everything ran smoothly, and we got so many compliments from our friends on the food and service. I would HIGHLY recommend Lake Forest!!

  • I choose this venue because it is not your boring banquet room. I had character and everyone at the wedding loved it and said how it looked like a castle and romantic! Prices are a bit high, but that is anywhere. The club did switch event planners mid planning our wedding and did not notify us for 3 months after the new one was hired. Everything worked out although sometimes a bit slow on responsiveness. Overall I would not even hesitate to have my wedding here, the beauty of the venue outweighs any negatives or cost.

  • As per the other reviews... The club is beautiful!! The formal dining room is beautiful dark wood, with a great fireplace and gorgeous windows. The dining room feels very open as it is surrounded by windows for a perfect view out to the private lake. The gardens are fantastic and kept up flawlessly. My wedding date was October 2, 2010 and we were planning an outdoor wedding. The day of, mother nature had other plans as it rained, was cold and was grey the entire day (good luck for most brides, unless planning an outdoor wedding, then it is just a headache)… About an hour and a half before the wedding the club’s assistant manager had my wedding moved from outside to inside. The room was a little small of all of our guests, but it was still beautiful non-the less. The food was phenomenal… I had some of the most finicky eaters at my reception and they were saying how GREAT everything was!!! The only issue I had with this club, as per everyone else was the Management staff. ... Read more

  • This is a great location for a fall wedding! The communication of the staff is sometimes difficult but the site is stunning. With this venue you get a cozy home nestled in wonderful Hudson and not a big spacey reception hall. The food was awesome and loved by all my guests. The staff is the only downside to this site.

  • If you are thinking of having a wedding here.. RUN.. FAST..FAR! I had my wedding here in June of 2010 and would never ever recommend anyone having there wedding here. It was a joke from the start...I should have known. I also experienced a management change during the process. I had spent 10 months planning with one (who was not that great anyways) and then 68 days before my wedding..when everything should be pretty solid called to find out why I hadn't received a bill, only to find out that the assistant manager was no longer with the company. So when I should be sleeping soundly knowing i did everything well in advance, i was back to square one and had to replan everything with the club. I had it out with the manager of the club and everything and they were very less than accomodating. I chose the venue because of the beautiful grounds but Mother nature had other plans for us as well. We did our rehearsal outside (while trying to step around all the geese poop on the grounds that nob... Read more

  • We celebrated our reception at LFCC late in the fall of 08. The only aspect saving the club from a one star review is the beauty of the venue. Their gardens are immaculate and the lake provides a lovely background for pictures. The interior is pleasant as well, but they missed the bathrooms when they did the remodel (hello 80’s pink). My primary issue with the club was a lack of communication, which unfortunately is the most important factor when one is planning an event. In the three months preceding my wedding, the club went through three different managers. This fact alone was not the issue. The problem was that each time, I found out from other people. At no point did the club communicate those personnel changes; actually the current manager was downright indignant when we expressed concerns. So I had to review every detail of my reception, again and again. Obviously less than convenient. After the reception, I thought we were in the clear, but I was wrong. The c... Read more
