Destination Weddings

  • Be at Ease

    The beautiful Tennessee Lodge is the perfect space for the bride and groom, close family and friends, up to 25 guests. For all other guests, we can help you arrange hotel service with nearby hotels only 15 miles from our location. Shuttle service is available with some hotels, so you can be confident that your guests can comfortably and safely enjoy your special night.

  • Put Away the Map

    We are a destination, even though we may not be far from you! We are close to I-39, just south of Rockford, IL.

  • Relax

    Take a break by walking through the trails, or relax in the spa the night before your wedding. Then fall into bed in the Master Suite with private Jacuzzi that overlooks the creek. You’ll wake up refreshed, relaxed, and ready for your special day.
