The Lake House is a scenic waterfront wedding venue located in Calgary, Alberta. This alluring restaurant effortlessly blends rustic and sophisticated elements to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for weddings. The romantic ambiance and delightful cuisine make this a wonderful destination to celebrate with your loved ones.
Facilities and Capacity
Perched on the shores of Lake Bonavista, the restaurant offers sweeping vistas across the tranquil water. You and your guests can enjoy this picturesque backdrop as the venue features large windows that overlook the lake. Its open floor plan allows for ample seating for both ceremonies and receptions, and the space can easily be transformed to accommodate both events. You can tie the knot beside the massive stone hearth or in front of the windows. Intricate chandeliers crafted from elk antlers provide a warm glow in the evening. The 19th-century bar and glass wine cellar are focal points near the entrance of the restaurant. Additionally, a patio adjacent to the event space gives guests extra space to mingle and enjoy the views. This venue is suitable for weddings of up to 250 attendees.
The staff at The Lake House are delighted to help you create everlasting memories on your special day. They can assist you throughout the planning experience to ensure your wedding is beautiful and your cuisine is exquisite. The on-site event coordinator is also available to oversee the execution of the day’s events so your celebration goes off without a hitch.
Executive Chef Thomas Neukom has curated an exclusive menu for weddings at The Lake House. He and his team specialize in creating elegant meat and seafood entrees, although equally delicious vegetarian options are available if requested. Your guests will receive a card with your chosen menu at dinner and can select their meal on the spot. This method often reduces much of the stress of planning for engaged couples. There are also lunch and brunch menus if you prefer to hold an earlier event.

Went above and beyond
We were able to do a full tasting menu and wine tasting in order to decide for our big day. We chose quite easily on the food options; the food was heavenly. We weren’t disappointed and we even got complements on how delicious it was from ALL our guests. The drinks, well you can’t complain about those!
The Lake house is just an all-around stunning place, you do need to know someone in order to have access to the actual lake but there are beautiful places around to still take photos.
I highly recommend this venue!
The Perfect Wedding Venue!
The food and service was amazing! We hope we are able to have a proper reception when COVID restrictions have been lifted and we cannot wait to work with Kirsten and the team at the Lake House in the future!
Rustic, Elegant Venue for a Beautiful, Romantic Wedding
The staff were professional, organized and punctual. The Lake House hosts a wedding basically every weekend of the year, and you can tell that they have the process down to a fine art and science. Communicating with them was a dream, and they helped us every step of the way, answering any questions we had and helping us sort out exactly the details we wanted, giving us examples of what we could do and what has been previously done. They were open to new suggestions and were able to tell us what was possible and what was not.
On the day of our wedding everything went 100% perfect, and if there was a problem, we are still not aware of it. Our guests raved about the food and professional service, as well as how lovely the venue was, and how perfect it suited our style of wedding.
Such a Fantastic Experience!
