One of our favorite guests is a honeymoon couple, as we well remember that feeling ourselves and love being a part of a similar special time in your life! We have cabins exclusively for two and cabins with hot tub decks which are perfect for a romantic retreat that lets you focus on getting to know one another in your brand new life together as husband and wife.
Contact our office staff for local catering contacts, plus, there are a number of quality florists in nearby Harrison (Google "Harrison ar florists") who can assist you with beautiful flowers, whether you're looking for the extravagant or simple. We also regularly work with a florist who used to have a shop, but who now just takes special orders. She does a very nice job, her flowers are quality and her prices are very reasonable. We'd be glad to put you in touch with her.
This may be the middle of nowhere, yet we seem to be inordinately blessed with talented artists in our midst. Toni Albers is one of those gifted people and you won't find a better wedding photographer in the state. We're photographers ourselves, and we know aperture talent when we see it. Toni lives just 15 minutes from the lodge, which save you the traditional travel fee. You can view Toni's beautiful work at Maffei-Albers Photography or call her at 870-553-2556. Oh, and ask her about incorporating a horse-drawn wagon arrival for the bride on your wedding day...she and her husband have a team and wagon that can give you a surprise entrance at the lodge!
Where do we get tables? What about a preacher? We've rented a tent, is that okay? She wants to get married standing on Whitaker Point...where is that?!? We promise Mom, help is just a phone call away (1-800-221-5514). Our friendly office staff will welcome your questions and get you the answers you need so you can go on to worrying about something else! (You know you will!)
