Our mission has always been to provide a quality product and give exceptional, consistent service. The Resort specializes in wedding receptions with the ability to handle guests from 100 to 500. Each event requires organization and attention to detail. We pride ourselves on being able to provide the attention and service you deserve. Your event can be tailored to most needs and you can rest assured we will do all we can to make your day a special one.
The Links Restaurant is a full-service restaurant that can meet your every need. With a wide selection of entrees and the flexibility to offer buffet or plated dinners, the Links Restaurant will tailor the menu to your unique reception.
The Resort also offers the Lake Panorama National Inn and Suites for overnight accommodations. We have a motel complex that has 27 separate rooms and several two-bedroom townhomes for rent. All units are within walking distance of the Conference Center and work nicely for guests wishing to spend the night with us. A complimentary room is given to the bride and groom as a small token of appreciation for allowing us to host your reception.
