    Beautiful venue in the heart of Pickering

    The Lake House was the one stop shop we were looking for. We got married on the top terrace overlooking the beautiful marina, our guests enjoyed a great cocktail hour and our reception in the bottom ballroom was beautiful - great lake views and sunset! We had a smaller wedding (60 pp) and the size was perfect - plenty of space! The food was amazing - many compliments from our guests. Overall day went perfect! Would highly recommend - great alternative for people wanting to get married and have reception in one place. Easy to plan as well as food, booze, linens, etc. were all handled by the Lake House.

    I would recommend Paul Shannon Caterers and Lake House to anyone! I had my wedding booked at another venue and they cancelled on me with 5 weeks to go and by fluke, the Lake House was available. They were so accommodating and professional, even with such a short time-frame. They co-ordinated multiple rental companies, lighting, A/V equipment, a Photo Booth, and then a great meal and service on top. My wedding was gorgeous, the food was delicious and Chad and Paul were fantastic. Its been a few weeks now and my family is still talking about it! Can't say enough great things!

    Perfect location for a wedding

    We recently had our perfect day and thanks to Chad & Paul we were able to pull it together in a short period of time with their help. Other than a bit of miscommunication near the end, both Chad and Paul were very patient with my 1000+ questions and concerns as I seemed to have one question answered and then three more come up. We were on the main floor of the venue which was helpful for our guests with mobility issues. Everyone enjoyed the view from their seats and commented on the location. Thank you Chad and Paul for making our big day stress free!

    Terrible service at the Lake House

    We had an event at the Lake House and the overall service was terrible. Food service was below health standards and delivery of hors d'oeuvres was very minimal. For an event of 200 people, there were only 3 servers, 2 of them were in training. Food did not have much flavour and the soup that was served tasted like water. Very poor customer service.
