A naturally beautiful venue for your big day.
We have built and are still adding to a magnificent outdoor area for hosting weddings that is like no other, and the property is full of picturesque spots for wedding photos. When wedding festivities are not in progress, guests are welcome to enjoy fishing, nature walks, grilling, and many other activities in the beautiful Minnesotan outdoors. Eventually a lodge will also be available for indoor banquets and there will be enough lodging to host an entire weekend wedding! See our photo gallery for pictures!
We would love to work with your wedding planner or you to help coordinate this important day. There are many details that go into the preparation, set up, and production of a wedding so things go just right.
- Catering: You are welcome to hire outside catering for food and beverages since The Black Lantern Resort & Retreat does not provide that service.
- Music: There are two spots for bands to set up, and a dance to be held.
- Lodging: You can view our accommodations under lodging. Lodging options include RV hookups, cabins, and plenty of primitive camping sites in case the guests want to make a weekend out of the celebration.
An unforgettable wedding on the water
We are fine-tuning plans to offer a "wedding on the water," which involves having the wedding party anchor out in festive rowboats with the bride and groom centered on a decorated floating platform in the middle of our lake.
