Swan Lake Testimonials

We had our wedding at Swan Lake. Taylor and the rest of the staff at were so amazing! We were nervous at first because we didn't know how they felt about same sex weddings, but Taylor made us feel so comfortable and the rest of the staff was so great as well. Highly, highly recommend Swan Lake for any wedding or event!!

Swan Lake is the absolute perfect place to get married. It was so convenient to have the ceremony, reception, and hotel all in the same place! Plus, you get to use their decor and they set up and tear down everything for you, which made the weekend so much less stressful. The staff is amazing! Taylor worked with us for hours to get everything just right and handled mishaps so smoothly. MaryEllen and Erin were awesome too! Maryellen was always very attentive and helpful and Erin made sure the decor was just how I wanted and got all of the bridal party at the right places at the right time :) The servers were all very polite and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience at Swan Lake. They do an amazing job and truly do want to make your wedding day PERFECT!

Tyler Mendenhall and I got married at Swan Lake Resort on June 20th, 2015. We had the best time at our wedding. Everything ran smoothly thanks to Taylor Hampton and the staff! The service was great and I was not nervous at all on the day of my wedding. I was able to meet and communicate all of my plans and decorations ahead of time. Swan Lake Resort was very flexible with what I wanted to do with my wedding. They were able to provide the wedding I had envisioned! I had visited many wedding venues in this area and in the Indianapolis area, and in my opinion it is the best around!

We recently held our daughter's wedding at the Swan Lake Resort. Everything about the weekend was great! This is the perfect venue for a wedding, especially with out of town guests. The hotel staff were super accommodating - whatever we asked for they promptly provided. Room are on the older side but super clean and are currently being renovated. The indoor pool is one of the nicest I have ever seen. The golf courses are beautiful and our golfers really enjoyed themselves. The wedding coordinator was fantastic! She coordinated all of the activities for the weekend and made the entire experience as flawless as possible. The wedding was held outdoors in the gazebo overlooking the pond and golf course. It was beautiful. The entire staff was great. The chef is fantastic - everything that came out of the kitchen was really good. We received so many compliments on our choice of the resort and how good the food was. Can't say enough good things about our experience at the Swan Lake Resort. Would highly recommend it for your wedding or event.

I planned a trip for eight to Swan Lake Resort for a bachelor party. We planned the event as a Stay and Play package with Lindsay and she walked me through everything. It was a painless, seamless process. Their package prices are very reasonable. We stayed in a log cabin and greatly enjoyed the rustic feel with full amenities. The fire pit was a great addition. I planned our four round Ryder Cup format with Clint and he input all our info into their EZ golf system. Our carts were always waiting on us with bags ready, scorecards printed and everything squared away. We made some changes between rounds and it was very easy. Everyone on staff was attentive and polite. Overall the experience was exceptional. Its only 2 hours from Chicago and we are already rebooking for a group of 16 next year!

The Zionsville (IN) High School Girls Varsity & JV Soccer teams were playing in a preseason 2-day soccer tournament at the Newton Sports Complex in Lakeville, IN. I had 2 weeks to book 38 rooms plus plan a dinner for the team and families traveling. I worked with Conrad in the Sales and Catering department and he was awesome to work with. He worked with me on every detail regarding the block of rooms, and the dinner. He even offered us a room for the Team to gather and relax in after their dinner.... now that's amazing service! For our team dinner, the staff worked with me on customizing our menu. They even took care of our vegetarians! The food was excellent. I have people still telling me how nice the Team Dinner was and how good the food was. The Fettuccine Alfredo was the favorite, but the garlic bread was the real hit of the night!!! In addition to working with Conrad, I also worked with Kristen and Rhonda to organize this event. All were friendly and very professional. I felt like a valued and appreciated guest and customer. All in all, it was a great overnight stay. The only thing that could have made the stay better would have been more time to enjoy the beautiful facility and the grounds. I'm not a golfer, but my husband is. The first thing he said as we drove up was how nice the golf course was. He was sorry he didn't bring his clubs. I would give this place a big thumbs up and we would stay here again without hesitation!!! Thanks SLR for your true Hoosier Hospitality!!!!

I have been planning golf tournaments with friends for the last 15 years. I have always taken pride in the planning and scoring of our tournaments. We brought our 32 player Ryder Cup tournament to Swan Lake in October and, at first, I turned down the offer to use the resort's Group EZ service because "I knew how to run a golf trip". After speaking with Clint about the service I reconsidered and, let me tell you, "just another golf trip" turned into the best golf trip we've had throughout all the years. Clint and the staff at Swan Lake took care of everything. We literally dropped our clubs off upon arrival and they did the rest (except hit good golf shots) for us. The burden of running a golf trip can take some of the fun out of it, but I went from the organizer of the trip to a player just enjoying the weekend. I would recommend Swan Lake Resort and the Group EZ to anyone who wants to have a great golf weekend tournament without the stress of organizing the event. Thank you Clint and the staff at Swan Lake for a great golf weekend, we'll be back next year!

John Eshoo -

Our entire group had a wonderful time. The facilities and the courses were in terrific condition and the added services such as club cleaning and the evening bag storage, really set Swan Lake Resort apart from the others. The entire staff were very professional and treated us all as special guests. I think we all agreed that Swan Lake Resort was the best we've experienced in our 19 years of having this group together. Our plan is to return again next year.

This beautiful place made my wedding a dream come true! Through the entire process and up until the day of the wedding Taylor and Maryellen were nothing but a help! I was so amazed with the help I recieved. On the day of the wedding I did not have a care in the world as they took total care of the entire day! I truly felt like a bride. There is not one bad thing I have to say, how could I? They helped me with my making my dream wedding a reality!

Carey Maish -

My name is Brandon and I have a family of seven from Wisconsin. We made a last minute decision to come to Plymouth to visit family and took a room at another hotel in the area. When we woke, we were appalled by the dirtiness and disappointed that the pool was dirty. We checked out and called Swan Lake Resort. They took us in last minute and got us into a booked hotel within a couple hours. They even allowed us to swim while we waited. Great and friendly staff with a beautiful resort. It was very clean and orderly. Thanks to Swan Lake Resort for turning around our weekend. My family and I will be staying here every time we come visit!

Taylor and Maryellen were amazing to work with in planning and coordinating our wedding at Swan Lake Resort on May 13, 2016. Everything went smoothly for the entire day, which is a major accomplishment with the amount of people who traveled from abroad to be at our wedding (50+ from Ireland). We could not have asked for a better wedding and would recommend that anyone have their special day be held at this venue. Thank you guys again for everything.

Zack Dotas -

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Taylor and all of the Swan Lake staff!! We met with Taylor in September of 2016 and even before we booked she was always there to answer any questions or concerns that we had. The beautiful location and size of the venue (we had around 325-350 guests attend) was exactly what we were looking for, but Taylor and her customer service definitely made our decision easy. My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Swan Lake during the weekend of July 22, 2017. Everything was absolutely perfect and I could not have asked for anything more! The Swan Lake staff sets up and tears down all of the decorations, which really took a load off of my shoulders. They had almost all of the reception decorations up on Friday night, so we were able to take a look before the weekend became hectic. During the day of, Taylor and Erin were there to make sure that everything ran smoothly with the other vendors and that all decorations were in place. We received so many compliments on the food, staff and decorations by our guests! I would HIGHLY recommend Swan Lake!!!!!!

Amanda Clyne -

I can honestly say having our wedding at Swan Lake was an absolute dream come true. Everything was perfect from the beautiful venue to the great tasting food. The staff was absolutely amazing especially the wedding planner Taylor and day of event coordinator Mary Ellen. Taylor was such a fun person to work with and her attention to detail assured me everything would be perfect. Planning a wedding can be stressful but thankfully with her help we did not have anything to worry about. You can tell she has such a passion for what she does!

Lindsey Schubert -

Swan Lake is highly recommended by our family! The staff made our sweet daughter's wedding day so special last evening under the gazebo. They went over and above our expectations! I was blown away at the professionalism of this most excellent place! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!

Debbie Hughey Parsons -

We could not have asked for a better wedding venue and day. Taylor and Maryellen are AMAZING. Swan Lake is a beautiful place and everything is so convenient. If you do not want much stress on your wedding day I highly recommend Swan Lake to you. We not only enjoyed the day, but received many compliments from our guests on how beautiful everything was and how beautiful the location was. Thank you again for all you did!

Kyla Schauss -

Cannot thank Taylor and Mary Ellen enough for making our day so special. Our family's cannot stop talking about how beautiful it was.

Louise Dotas -

Swan Lake is an incredibly beautiful place to have your wedding. Food, decorating, clean up, hotel...everything in one place, which helped us reduce a lot of stress when planning our wedding. However, the most important part, for me, was the wedding coordinator, Taylor. My fiance and I worked with her via e-mail and phone as we are both out of state. She is amazing! She is completely on top of all details and concerns. After meeting with her, I finally felt like everything was coming together. She is, of course, everything you hope for in a wedding coordinator at a venue: organized, polite, responsive (and fun, too!). But if you have a problem, she will also fight for you and make it right. Our day would not have been so incredible without the effort put in by her and Maryellen, the day-of coordinator. Taylor is such an asset to Swan Lake, and working with her was truly a pleasure! I would recommend SLR for anyone looking for an elegant, affordable, well-organized event. Date of event: Sept. 19th, 2015

Katja E. Meyer -

Taylor was extremely helpful and very attentive to any questions or concerns I had! She was very easy to get in contact with and even greater to work with! Being from out of state I had a lot of concerns doing a "destination" wedding but Taylor was very organized and helped execute all my dreams and wishes!! Mary Ellen was great the day of and helped with our photos. Definitely recommend Swan Lake if you're thinking about having an event or wedding here! They did an amazing job and I've gotten so many compliments on how beautiful of a job they did. Oh and the food was also great:)!! Thank you Taylor, Mary Ellen, and Swan Lake for all your help and making our wedding so special!

Katie E Bradford Grant -

Swan Lake was the most beautiful backdrop for our October wedding. Every detail was taken care of by Taylor, Maryellen, and Erin. The bartender's and servers did such an amazing job also. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend Swan Lake to anyone that is looking for a beautiful and unique venue for their wedding!

Jen Thode -

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Swan Lake Resort, and it's staff, especially Taylor Hampton!! We are from the Chicago-area, but stumbled upon Swan Lake Resort, and as soon as I saw it I knew this is where I wanted to have our wedding. The outdoor ceremony space is beautiful, along with the ballroom. The entire planning process was such a breeze with Taylor and her team, and they were so accommodating to all of our needs (even when we made various changes along the way). Many of our guests told us how they appreciated all of the kindness from all of the staff, and it only re-assured me on how I made the right decision to have my wedding there. Again, Taylor made this experience so easy and fun, and I it kept me calm the entire day! I am so so grateful for her!! If I had to re-do our wedding I would not change one thing, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!!

Gretchen Niemann -

We had our wedding at Swan Lake and it was AMAZING! They had everything perfect for our big day, and Taylor and Mary Ellen were so incredibly helpful throughout the entire process, even when I was a bit of a pain. :) I am so blessed to have had the opportunity to get married here with this amazing staff, the beautiful venue, and the wonderful food. I would without a doubt do it all over again. Thank you guys for the wonderful job you do!!

We had a perfect wedding experience at Swan Lake last Saturday. Taylor and Maryellen did a wonderful job from beginning to end! Can't say enough good things about how well the wedding went. We would recommend them to anyone!

Barb Gretter -

Taylor & Mary Ellen, you both are A M A Z I N G. Thank you for all you've done for us. There were a few mis-haps which are expected while planning a wedding and you guys went above and beyond to fix that !!!!!! We appreciate everything you guys done for us. So sad I won't be dealing with you guys anymore, but good thing for Facebook xoxo Mr. & Mrs. Naraine

Alicia Naraine -

I absolutely LOVE Swan Lake. It was my happy place. Taylor and Mary Ellen do a wonderful job. These two ladies and the rest of the staff at Swan Lake made my wedding a dream come true which I know wasn't easy. I'm a very detailed sort of person and want everything perfect and change my mind a lot. These ladies put up with what my husband calls "my crazy" with ease and never made me feel like a burden like others may have. They answered all of my questions (which was a lot. When I first came to Swan Lake, I had a list of 75 questions), they also let me come many times to play with the decor or just take a look around. Swan Lake is worth every penny - you get to use their decor, have a 2 night complimentary stay, have access to Taylor and Mary Ellen, have set up and clean up taken care of, food, etc. I love Swan Lake and someday (if I can talk my husband into it), I hope to come back and renew our vows there and have another reception! If you go with Swan Lake, you will not regret it. Both ladies are wonderful - flexible, direct (no secrets), friendly and will bend over backwards to give you the wedding you vision!

Heather Harvey -

Everything was great. Our room was the first room by the entrance - quite convenient. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. John was phenomenal. He took his time and was very patient with us. He thoroughly explained all of the instructions/lessons. I would highly recommend John to anyone who wants to improve their golf game. We are hoping to come back in July to have John fit us for new clubs. The golf courses were in great shape. We thoroughly enjoyed our time playing golf on both courses. I don't know how we got three days in without any rain. Our entire stay was greater than we anticipated.

Ray & Pat Widuch -

A huge thank you to Taylor, Mary Ellen, hotel services and the kitchen staff! Held a wedding for 175 guests a week ago and loved the fact that it was a stress free weekend for us! Taylor's advice and attention to detail allowed us the enjoy the weekend and join in the celebration. Our guests loved the hotel accommodations, the food was superb and Mary Ellen orcistated an seemless event.

LeeAnn Stebbins -

I can't even imagine having Carey and Josh's wedding anywhere else. I'm so glad Josh suggested it to us all. Taylor and Maryellen know their "wedding stuff"! They we're completely helpfully beginning to the end. And, done with smile on their faces. This was a destination wedding, in that, we had many, many rooms booked with family and friends for 3 nights. They catered to our every need, wedding or not. We are SO thankful for Swan Lake!!! If considering Swan Lake...Go with them, you WON'T be disappointed!!

Beth Carey Maish -

I absolutely have no complaints about my wedding and the planning process at Swan Lake. Taylor Hampton was wonderful to work with, and even though I had some crazy ideas I wanted to do at my wedding, she was very flexible and tried her best to make my dream wedding come true. I highly recommend having your wedding here, it is worth the money when you Think about not having to do your food, or clean everything up afterwards. They are all about service. Stop by to meet Taylor and you won't regret it!

Danae Peachey -

I had my wedding and reception at Swan Lake. Let me just say they made my dream wedding come true. Whenever I had a question Taylor was quick to respond with an answer. I loved working with Taylor, Mary Ellen and Erin! Pretty much anything I was wanting to be done they were going to try their hardest to make it happen. There is nothing about my day at Swan Lake I would change. EVERYTHING went smoothly and it was perfect. All my guests complimented the venue on how classy and elegant it was. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding at a better place. The staff was nothing but the best to work with!!!

Emily Foust -

I would like to take this opportunity to express our experience at the golf academy last week. Debra and I were extremely impressed with the teaching style of John Ericson. His ability to relate to other sports and tie them back to golf was fantastic. John was very keen on observing both the techniques of Debra and myself and not at all hesitant to make corrections to our mistakes. That's great. I felt as though this was a training session that I wish I would of had years ago so I would have enjoyed the sport more. Playing a bad a golf round is not fun, but frustrating. John, likewise focused on Debbie's new skills and got her off on the right track. She likewise is enjoying the golf experience. We both enjoyed the accommodations at the hotel and really found the golf course to be a beautiful and enjoyable experience. I guess I have to say that Swan Lake Golf academy is one of the best kept secrets in Northern Indiana. Trust me, Debbie and I will be returning to your facility in the near future so we can continue to sharpen our golf skills. Hopefully, John will remain on staff. He is a key asset to that academy. See you soon.

Debbie and Dave Mannia -

The experience at Swan Lake was awesome. The instruction from John was great. It has really improved my game. I love the game of golf even more now. I never had a lesson before and therefore really had nothing to practice. Now with the instruction I received, I can go out and practice what I’ve learned and become more efficient at the game. Also the accommodations and food was great. The overall experience was super and I have highly recommended Swan Lake to my friends. Thanks again.

Frank Mingey -

We were so fortunate to have our wedding at Swan Lake Resort on October 3, 2015. Our wedding day was so magical and perfect all thanks to Taylor, the wedding coordinator and Maryellen, the day of coordinator. I feel like it is so hard to find a wedding coordinator that not only understands you but can make your wedding dreams become a reality. Taylor did exactly just that. She was so attentive in responding to my emails and gave me endless suggestions to create the perfect wedding I envisioned. Maryellen was also very helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly - which it did thanks to her! Even though it decided to rain before the ceremony and I was about to have a mid panic, Maryellen knew exactly what to do. She transformed one of the ballrooms to one of the most elegant, intimate ceremonies I've ever seen. Everyone at the wedding raved about how amazing everything looked. Food was outstanding! Pretty much everyone ate everything on the plate. I could really go on and on about how amazing this venue is. It seriously is so perfect. The guests loved that the ceremony, reception, and even hotel rooms were all in one location. It made it so convenient for everyone. It was also nice to have a bar that was at the resort so that the party could still continue even after the reception ended. I will be recommending this venue to everyone!

Bona Rousseau -

Our experience with Swan Lake Resort, and working with Taylor, Erin, and Maryellen for our wedding reception was incredible. Taylor is so nice, and incredibly organized. I was confident in Taylor, and did not worry about one thing during our planning process. Erin and Maryellen carried out our décor set up perfectly the day of the wedding, and were so easy to work with. Their entire staff helped our day run smoothly. The venue itself is beautiful, and the hotel was convenient for our guests staying overnight. Swan Lake Resort is THE place to have your wedding!

Livia Stoller -

Leigh and I had our wedding at Swan Lake this past October and had an absolutely wonderful experience. We worked with Taylor to pull it all together from California. Taylor and all the team at Swan Lake made the planning simple and the day of worry-free. Taylor worked hard to address any last minute needs and somehow was able to manage to banish the rain we had in the morning so we had a perfect ceremony and reception. We had so much fun! Oh and, first same sex wedding for Taylor and Swan Lake. We could not have been more welcomed. If you are looking for an amazing place to get married in Northern Indiana, you can't do better than Taylor and Swan Lake

Jane Elliot-Hughes -

I absolutely loved having my wedding at swan lake. The atmosphere is gorgeous and the setup and decorations were absolutely beautiful. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. I could not ask for a better wedding experience, it was perfect.

Lauren Ferguson -

Taylor, Erin, Sebastian, Chef Joe, the servers, bartenders and hotel staff did an awesome job of orchestrating our daughters wedding on 6/10/17. Planning a wedding from Florida was an absolute breeze with Taylor. She always answered or found an answer to our questions and made sure that she communicated with us with a very prompt response. Communication is Taylor's strength and what makes her an exceptional wedding sales consultant. We never felt as though she was "selling" us. She truly did care about Kirsten's wedding and wanted to make sure that we were all happy with our decisions. Taylor is simply "amazing " and Swan Lake should not only be proud of the job she does, but also beyond thankful for being able to sell the wedding business and GROW Swan Lake into the best wedding venue, not only in Northern Indiana but throughout the entire state. Thank you Taylor! You are the BEST! I must also give kudos to a few other very instrumental people at Swan Lake. These are the people that are in the background making sure that EVERYTHING and I mean everything is being taken care of! Chef Joe gave us two tastings....we couldn't decide on a menu and when we brought our ideas to him he executed the meal and it was delicious, HOT and loved by all of our guests. The appetizers were also wonderful and we are still getting compliments on the wedding food. Thank you Chef Joe you delivered! Sebastian is in charge of banquets, we met on the wedding day and he did an exceptional job making sure everything was perfect. At one time the flowers from the gazebo needed to be brought in to the reception and he was on it, making sure that everything was in place!! Thank you Sebastian! I could go on an on about our servers and bartenders they were awesome! I especially would like to thank the head server that was assigned to the parents table. He was great. He knew I wanted my food HOT and for sure it was ! He even made sure I got a flavor of the wedding cake I wanted. Thank you!! Last but certainly not least is Erin. Erin went above and beyond Perfection! From the rehearsal, to making sure that everyone was in place to walk down the aisle, Erin was there. Little changes in the reception did not even bother Erin, she just got it done. Her calmness made me so at ease. We cannot thank Erin enough for all of her hard work and her integrity in her position and job!! Swan Lake has a TEAM of professionals that will help guide you through your wedding/event. Don't hesitate if you are thinking about holding your wedding here! Your entire wedding party/friends/guests will thank you! It's a great place for an all inclusive wedding and reception! There aren't any Palm tress, BUT is there ever a better view than that of a gorgeous resort and magnificent golf course! Thank you again!
