If you’re planning to have a company retreat, family reunion, graduation or even an anniversary in Indiana, you’re probably looking for potential venues in the area. Fortunately, you’ll be spoiled with choices since there are many different Indiana resorts. But remember: not all resorts are created equal, so you should do your research and choose the best possible option. This can be difficult to do at first glance, but you can make it easier by knowing what to look for in a resort. Here are some of the things you should keep in mind:


Excellent location

One of the most important things to look for in a resort is its location. As much as possible, it should provide you with beautiful views that will serve as a gorgeous backdrop for your event. At the same time, it must also be accessible enough for your guests so they won’t have a hard time finding the venue nor get lost while on their way to it.

Fortunately, these are exactly what you’ll get if you decide to have your event at Oakwood Resort. It’s located on the edge of beautiful Lake Wawasee, which offers stunning views throughout the day and breathtaking sunsets in the afternoon. Despite the fact that it’s near the lake, the resort is actually centrally located and can be easily reached from Detroit, Chicago, Columbus, and Indianapolis.


A range of venue options

Some resorts only offer indoor venues, while others focus mainly on outdoor ones. There’s nothing wrong with this per se but, if you’re planning something like a family reunion or graduation, you’ll want to have several options in terms of venues. If you’re organizing an outdoor company retreat, you’ll want to have a warm and comfortable place that can house your employees in case it rains.

This is exactly what we offer here at Oakwood Resort. We want to give our customers a range of choices in terms of where they’ll hold their event, so we provide several venue options. We have an outdoor event space for those who are looking for a large, sprawling area and a hilltop banquet center for those who would like to have overlooking views of the lake. We also have conference rooms that can accommodate an intimate six-person get together, all the way up to a large 160-person seminar.


In-house catering service

One of the toughest challenges of hosting an event is preparing refreshments for your guests. Luckily, this isn’t a problem at Oakwood Resort since we have an in-house caterer. Just tell us exactly what kind of food and drinks you want to be served during your event, and our culinary team will take care of the rest.


Great location, venue options, catering services — these are just some of the things you should look for in company retreat locations as well as your graduation, family reunion, or anniversary event. Fortunately, you don’t need to look far since you can find all of these at Oakwood Resort. No matter what kind of venue you’d like and how many guests you’re planning to have, you have the assurance that we can provide you with everything you need.
