“We are still hearing many comments about the beautiful setting for Jen and Jamie’s wedding!  The day turned out fair just in time!  We appreciated all the help in tent placement, in hauling us around in the golf cart, and putting out the chairs at the last minute.  George, please tell your wife how much we appreciated the use of your home for dressing and relaxing the afternoon of the wedding.  That is a very important part of your service! I think that the young people who stayed on site had a very wonderful time, also. We think we found the best spot for the wedding ceremony (overlooking the lake and the mountains).  Thanks for letting us have the run of the place.  I would recommend Lake Eden as a perfect wedding location to anyone.”  – With thanks, Kathy Matthews



Who we are
Lake Eden Events & Lodging is very much a family owned and operated business. The Pickering family first moved here to Lake Eden back in 1956 and has continuously cared for and lived on the property ever since. This is our home and we hope that every visitor feels just that…they are a guest in our home, not just a customer. After hosting weddings and events over the years for various friends and family, in 2004 we began operating Lake Eden Events & Lodging as a destination for gatherings of all types. Leigh & the Lake Eden team look forward to each season as an opportunity to share this beautiful space with so many new faces.
Lake Eden is committed to being a safe and inviting space for everyone and does not abide by discrimination in any form.
