"One of Southern Illinois's finest Reception Facilities", An Eventective User from Mt. Vernon, IL
Rend Lake Resort offers a wonderfully rustic venue in which to hold a wedding reception or any event. They offer nice hotel rooms, food at two different restaurants and personal touches that make the stay or event a memorable one. They offer a pub atmosphere for sandwiches and steaks and then a little more upscale setting for a dinner with all the frills. There is a weekend seafood buffet and seating can be indoors or outdoors with all facing Rend Lake. There are two separate large rooms for meetings or parties, easily seating 250+. All food and beverages are supplied and prepared right on site. There is an extensive menu available for receptions and meetings from seafood to chicken to steaks and all prepared with taste in mind. Ample hotel rooms are available for those wishing to stay, including "boatels" located right on the lake. As well, there are regular rooms available and hot tub rooms too. The staff can provide service from dining to clean-up. There are bar tenders available for private parties where alcohol will be served. The event coordinator is very helpful and is almost always available to help with planning. The largest of the two rooms offers a panoramic view through the wide windows and here is where the rusticness is at its best: the high wooden beams and windows create a very woodsy feel that can be played out or can be just used as a back drop for a more elegant situation. Located within a state park, this resort offers a fantastic setting with good food and much more.
