Our Unique Island Getaway

Ludlow's Island is a special place, and we want to share it with you, your friends and your family.

Our hand-crafted cottages are nestled among pine and birch and situated on the water's edge. Every cabin has a fireplace, a deck, and is secluded from other cottages for your privacy. On Ludlow's Island, there won't be any vehicles getting in the way of your special day.

Our staff will work with you to select meals, accommodations, reception areas, and activities for family and guests.

You will have our full attention leading up to and on your wedding day. You can even take over the entire property and have exclusive use of the island!

Vows That Wow!

Hold your ceremony on the beach, in our lodge, or on a large granite shelf on the edge of our Lake Vermilion shore.

You can even arrive to the ceremony in style in one of Ludlow's vintage wooden boats or hold your reception on the beach!

Whatever your vision, Ludlow's staff can help coordinate flowers, spa services, clergy, music — even bachelor or bachelorette functions.

Many couples choose to honeymoon with us after the ceremony. You'll continue to enjoy Ludlow's and Lake Vermilion in one of our very private, secluded cottages relaxing in a whirlpool tub and enjoying a wood burning fireplace.

A Wedding Event That Meets Your Needs

Here are a few reasons why our island might be the perfect place for your wedding.

Our attention to your needs: Ludlow's hosts only a few weddings each year and wants to make sure your special day is perfect. Many resort properties host more than one wedding at a time — not Ludlow's.

Unique setting: Where else can you get married on an island and have it for your exclusive use?

Safety for your guests: No access to vehicles assures your guests will enjoy their time at the resort and not wander off when they should be enjoying the wedding functions.

Fabulous food: We prepare all of the banquet food from scratch, based on your wishes and not just a set menu. Ludlow's will do anything to make your day memorable.

Complete services: We can coordinate flowers, spa services, clergy, bachelor or bachelorette functions, music and just about everything to make your wedding perfect.
