I feel really strongly about The Oakwood. My husband and I married there ten years ago, and they’ve only gotten better over time. It’s beautiful inside – so cottagey and clean and stylish. The beds are way comfy. The lakeside restaurant is a lot of fun. But the best thing, I think, is how the whole place feels like one big family reunion. They are very dog friendly (thank you, thank you Oakwood!) and kid friendly. You end up talking to other people, swimming with them at the beach, joking with them over cocktails on the lawn. It’s just kind of effortlessly wonderful and welcoming, like the lake property you’ve always wanted, just waiting for you to drop in. My husband’s family has a condo on Lake Wawasee where we can stay for free, but we always make a point to stay at The Oakwood once or twice a summer because we love it so much.
Room Tip: I would recommend paying a little extra for a lake view.
