Swan Lake Testimonials

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!

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.

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!

From the moment we walked into Swan Lake Resort we knew this was going to be the perfect venue for our Summer wedding. We loved the fact that everything is in one spot; the ceremony location, the reception in the Grand Ballroom and the hotel. So many of our out of town guests made a whole weekend getaway during our wedding weekend and had so much fun. Amber and the staff at Swan Lake were so professional and wonderful to work with. She helped us with every detail. The guests absolutely loved the beautiful grounds where the ceremony took place. The Grand Ballroom looked amazing inside and everyone had nothing but good things to say about the food! We were so thankful we found this beautiful place to have our wedding so close to home. Thank you for helping to make our day so special!! We would highly recommend Swan Lake Resort for anyone looking for a beautiful and elegant setting to have their wedding!

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!

My husband and I were married July 19th 2014 at swan lake resort. First off, the resort is beautiful! The grounds were decorated nicely and well maintained. There were flowers blooming everywhere and there are multiple places to take pictures at. I will just list some things to review: Staff: Amber is amazing! She is the head coordinator and is very knowledgeable about every inch and second of a wedding. She even met with me personally on a Sunday when she had to previously cancel a meeting. She and her staff are on top of everything and never missed a beat. Ballroom: very beautiful and spacious. It is separated into three sections to fit to the number of guests. We had approx. 150 people and used two of the sections while reserving the third section as a ceremony spot in case we were rained out of the gazebo. Food: My guests raved about the food, however I hardly tasted it due to nerves! We served the Bison meatloaf ( yes, I served meatloaf at my fancy wedding and it was a hit!) and the Apple Gouda stuffed chicken. Everything was served hot and believe it or not, plated dinners are cheaper than buffet! The meals were $24 and $25 per person which included a salad, dinner roll, and two sides. Kids meals $10. Hotel: Very nice and accommodating, We had a block of 15 rooms for guests but they will work with you and book more if there is availability. The discounted rate was $139 at the time. It is very convenient that there is a hotel connected so tipsy guests, including myself, could walk to their rooms! Bridal Suite: the room is great with a nice comfy bed and a living room area with mini fridge to get ready in. There are two sinks and multiple mirrors for bridesmaids, bride etc. to get ready in. Golf cart: after you are married, you and your husband along with photos and a staff member are taken to a couple of areas on the golf course for great pictures. We had a half hour before the reception to take pictures and they turned out great! Overall I give Swan Lake a 10/10 and would recommend it to anyone! You can go as simple or as fancy as want. The staff can help you find vendors for your wedding, they even helped us find a last minute minister when ours had to cancel! They are great and I can't brag enough about how well everything went!

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 -

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.

Our wedding was July 26, 2014 at Swan Lake Resort. We are more than pleased with the professionalism and expertise we received from Amber, Brittani and the entire Swan Lake staff. We received many compliments on the food and beautiful location. This venue is beautiful and was everything we had hoped it would be. I highly recommend this location when considering venue options. Amber and Brittani go above and beyond to answer any questions and concerns in order to make the planning process smooth and stress free. The bridal suite was gorgeous, we were treated with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers. The hotel was very clean and modern. The gym, pools and salon areas were beautiful. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. We couldn't of picked a better place to accommodate our guests.

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I attended a wedding in Ft. Wayne. Our friends had their reception in a venue where they had to set up everything on their own. That also meant they had to take everything down within an hour of the reception ending. As friends, we were asked to help clean up so the bride and groom didn't have to worry about it. Of course we said it would be no problem, but with 40 tables and 360 guests, we had A LOT of cleaning up to do. Both Kevin and I left that night so THANKFUL that we had gone with such an amazing venue at Swan Lake! Thank you all again for the hard work you did. Your exceptional service made everything so much easier for everyone involved. We continue to rave about our experience and continue to recommend Swan Lake!

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.

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.

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!!!!

From my first encounter with Swan Lake all the way up until several days after the wedding, I was very VERY impressed with the service and professionalism of Swan Lake. The wedding coordinator, Amber, was wonderful at staying in contact with us and ensuring that the wedding went smoothly. She was even willing to meet with us just days after having her baby. Amber was absolutely wonderful. The day of the wedding could not have went any better. All of the coordinators worked endlessly to set up the decorations perfectly and everything looked beautiful. I was very happy with the end result. The food was delicious and we had many guests tell us that it was some of the best wedding food they had tasted. We had Bison Meatloaf and Stuffed Chicken for our entrees. Both were a hit and they were delivered fresh and hot. The servers during dinner provided fantastic service, as well. Other vendors that were brought in for flowers and decorations told me that Swan Lake was a wonderful venue to work with and were very accommodating. Swan Lake helped to make my daughter’s wedding very memorable and we could not be more happy with our choice at having the wedding at this venue! I would highly recommend Swan Lake.
