We also offer fully catered, indoor or outdoor rehearsal dinner packages tailored exactly to the wedding party’s wishes.

Professional Catering, Elegant Service in the Woods.

We like rustic, but we like elegant with it. After all, it is your wedding day! Brides and grooms rest easy (and so does everyone else) when the catering is absolutely perfect: practiced, poised, fun, and accompanied by great food and beverages.

Party and Dancing Time!

See those hardwood floors? They “rock” for great dancing when the party gets going. This is where live entertainment plays on weekends year-round at Northern. Want to add live music for your special day – no problem!


This was our third trip to Northern Outdoors as a family with our seven children and their friends… This year we decided to get married there and surprise the kids after our rafting. Besides excellent guides ( Brandi, Elliot and Erica) and outstanding accommodations and customer service , it was the most perfect day of our lives together.
