All of our guests, family and ourselves had such a wonderful time! We heard tons of nice compliments about the service, food, presentation, location, etc. I myself was also impressed with the beautiful tent decorations and lighting not knowing that they would surpass all my expectations. The help with my own decorations was extremely appreciated too. And last but not least, you!! You were always there when we needed you and a huge burden was listed off our shoulders just knowing that you would be there to take care of it!"

"Weddings are always very special times for everyone. Last weekend our son Charlie Seidl and Cheryl Kunkel were married in Minocqua and had their reception at The Waters. Planning a wedding so far from our home in the Twin Cities was a challenge. The time you spent with us going over details for the wedding was appreciated. We would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for making everything with the wedding just "Perfect". Your kindness in allowing us to use one of your banquet rooms for flowers was a blessing. Our little flower emergency was taken care of, thanks to your flower calls. Everyone we came in contact with made our stay with you a memory that we will hold very special. You are a wonderful, efficient coordinator who went beyond what we ever expected. We would love to return to The Waters and enjoy your beautiful hotel again."

—Terri and Jim Jasper

"We wanted to thank you and your staff for making our day very special. You and your staff were exceptional and went way above and beyond to make our day the best. We have heard nothing but compliments. When we get some of our pictures back we will send some so you can see how special you made our day."

"A big THANK YOU to your super- dedicated staff for making sure our wedding was the bride's Dream Wedding!!! The Waters staff gave us a warm welcome as soon as we arrived at the front desk. Jeremy helped us get our 6 coolers of peonies into a cool place and brought them back the next morning! Thank you Shirley for allowing us a conference room to arrange the hundreds of flowers we brought and for allowing us access to the storage room. Thank you housekeeping staff for a comfortable made up bed, clean fluffy towels, restocked coffee and checking to make sure we were all comfortable. The guests kept telling us it was the best wedding they have ever attended."
