"Our wedding was this past weekend after having to cancel last summer - I can not recommend this place enough! The cabins, lodge and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Holly and Cindy were incredibly receptive to my every need and the day was perfect down to the last detail. I even forgot to feed myself the morning of the wedding so Cindy just whipped up a pizza for me while I sat in hair and makeup and saved the day! They were around all weekend to make sure everything was exactly as I pictured it and even helped me Sunday morning with clean-up. Putting my ideas in others hands has never been easy for me but they absolutely did not disappoint. 10 out of 5 stars any day of the week! Thank you to the entire team at Maine Lakeside Cabins for a beautiful weekend!"
"I highly recommend getting married at Maine Lakeside Cabins in Caratunk!! From start to finish we have had such an amazing experience from planning with Holly to getting cabin assignments together with Cindy to riding the pontoon with Holly’s husband! This crew is truly the full package!! Holly offers several tiers of planning services with the venue, the one we chose had Holly handling our cake, catering, and floral vendors entirely so it was quite a weight off our shoulders. I was able to rent flatware, glassware, and linens all through the venue. Almost our entire guest list was able to stay on site in the cabins and those we didn’t were right across the street at the sterling in or down the road at inn by the river! The cabins are fully furnished so it was very convenient for our guests traveling from out of state. And the views of the lake are absolutely stunning!! It is clear Holly has trained her crew to value strong customer service skills as she does herself. Every single detail was just absolutely perfect and the whole crew was so friendly and kind! I have stayed here for white water rafting trips, weekend getaway always with friends, and now our wedding! In conclusion, wether you’re looking for a family get away, a weekend of adventure, or a wedding, Maine Lakeside is your spot!! We will be going back to visit and enjoy for years to come!!"
"My husband and I got married here in June of 2021 and it was better than we could ever imagine. Holly and Cindy were so great and responsive throughout the whole planning process. They made sure everything was taken care of and on the wedding date they had everything covered and it was perfect. All of our guests loved the venue, the food and the staff. We cannot recommend Maine Lakeside Cabins enough. Thank you Holly and her team for everything!"
"MLC was the best choice we made for our wedding day. When we saw the venue for the first time, we knew it was the one. Holly & Cindy helped us through my infinite emails and planning questions. The setting was gorgeous- and ALL IN ONE PLACE! Our guests love that there was availability to stay on site after the wedding. There are so many options for each event on site and they are all equally gorgeous. On the day of, we brought all of our decor and items in boxes, and by the time my hair was done, the wedding was exactly as I'd pictured! Not only did they set everything up perfectly, but they also added extra little touches throughout to make it exactly perfect. I couldn't have asked for more!"
"Holly was extremely flexible and understanding especially with the pandemic. She was glad to help in any way she could, and she was very professional."
"We cannot recommend Maine Lakeside Cabins enough if you are looking for a stunning and reasonable venue in Maine! Holly and Cindy went above and beyond to make sure that every detail of our day was executed perfectly. Their clear communication before and during the event made everything so easy and stress-free. Additionally, the venue is absolutely stunning, even if you are not getting married at peak foliage. Holly and Cindy, thank you so much for everything! To everyone else, this should be your venue!"
"Holly & the team at MLC are so amazing! Not only did I feel heard as a bride, but everyone commented to me about the amazing venue. The views are gorgeous, the cabins are amazing, and the staff goes above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. If you are looking for a wonderfully unplugged waterfront destination, this is it!"
"I do not know if there are appropriate words to express just how enjoyable of an experience it was to celebrate our marriage at Maine Lakeside Cabins. We eloped last year (also in Maine) and wanted to plan a 4-day, true-to-lakeside-Maine, celebration with family and friends. A total of 60 people traveled to Maine and joined us for white water rafting (through Northern Outdoors - highly recommend!), jet skiing, pontoon boat rides, WONDERFUL food (including a traditional Lobster Bake with mussels and a reception meal, served family style). Rachel was amazing to work with to plan every detail – our Google Doc is something to behold! Rachel was always there to ask how she could help and what she could do. I strongly suspect she doesn’t require sleep – that, or she has an identical twin! I cannot say enough good things about working with her! We chose to come to MLC the Sunday before everyone else arrived. That’s when we met Holly and Ben. Holly and Ben are most welcoming and ACCOMODATING people -- they made us and all our guests feel like friends. The number of stories that we’ve heard from our guests about how Holly and Ben made their experience personal, proves what a unique and special place Maine Lakeside Cabins is!"
"I can not say enough about Maine Lakeside Cabins. If you want a perfect wedding- book it here! Everything about this location is magical! The setting is so beautiful, the cabins are lovely, the staff is beyond amazing! All of our guests told us multiple time throughout our wedding weekend they just wanted to come back and spend a week here! HOLLY! Holly is the most amazing wedding coordinator! If you get married here, you have to do the day of coordination! I spent zero time on my wedding weekend stressed about anything! Holly and her amazing staff took care of everything! They were so easy to work with, constantly in contact with us throughout the planning process. They made everything so so easy! We also got to work with Rachael throughout our planning process who was also fabulous! Our wedding was flawless, and we were told multiple times by our guests that this was the best wedding they had even been too! We can not thank them enough!!"
"Maine Lakeside Cabins has been wonderful to work with. I still have 9 months to go, and they respond to any questions I have in a timely manner."
"We got married at Maine Lakeside Cabins on October 17, 2015. The venue is absolutely gorgeous. You are in the heart of the woods of Maine right on the water. The views are phenomenal. They have a lodge, barn, you can use a tent for the reception and they have cabins on site. The lodge is so well put together. It is like a rustic log lodge. They just redid their bar and it is gorgeous. They have a gas fireplace inside and a pool table with nice sofas. It is a nice homey cozy feel to it. The barn is a legit rustic barn. It is absolutely gorgeous inside. Then all of their cabins can sleep about 10 guests each and they are really nice. We had the majority of our guests stay on site and it was so nice having everyone so close. And everyone loved the cabins. It is also nice because everything is right there - the ceremony site, the lodge, tent and barn. They also have a really nice firepit for people to enjoy right by the lodge. Each cabin also has their own fire pit for guests to use. I honestly can't say enough amazing things about how great this venue is. If you want a rustic woodsy theme to your wedding this is the place for it. All of our guests loved it! Then on top of that you have Holly who helps you with your wedding. She is amazing. She really helped the day of the wedding with getting everything set up and making sure we had everything. She is really responsive throughout the planning process and is really great to bounce ideas off of. She has done plenty of weddings and has great ideas and advice. I would highly recommend using Maine Lakeside Cabins as your venue! Perfect place to get married!!!"
"Maine lakeside cabins was a beautiful place to get married. The owners are so helpful and accommodating! They make you feel relaxed through the whole process. Having the cabins on site for family members to stay in was so convenient and fun!! I'd recommend this place to anyone!! We look forward to going and staying there in the future!!"
"Maine Lakeside Cabins is a great place to have your wedding. If you are looking for a classic, rustic, Maine wedding, this is the place. Great cabins onsite with a lake view to die for. Holly is one of the owners and handled the wedding coordination. I can easily say, we could not have done it with her. The MLC staff was amazing and treated us like family from the start. I highly recommend taking a look at Maine Lakeside Cabins."
