Please note: Wisconsin beverage Laws require all alcoholic beverages served outside a guest room must be purchased under our liquor license- privately purchased beverages may not be served or consumed in any public areas.

We reserve the right to confiscate any outside alcoholic beverages brought in and to decline service of alcohol for the safety of our guests. If your party does not cooperate with this policy, we reserve the right to add an additional corkage fee to the event bill. Please inform your guests of this requirement.


Wedding Packages

The Gallery banquet room transforms itself with your decorating ideas. Please do not use nails/tacks in the walls. Items may be hung from the ceiling with string or wire (no tape). All decorations must be removed by the wedding party. No confetti of any type allowed for the ceremony or banquet room. (An additional cleaning charge will apply if confetti is used.) Decorating time will be scheduled based on the availability of the room, we cannot guarantee the night before for decorating.


All music will be arranged for by the bridal couple. The band or disc jockey must bring their own tables, electrical cords and other necessary equipment. A truck cannot be backed up to the lodge doors; therefore, the musicians must be prepared to carry their own equipment without assistance from the resort staff. All music is to end by midnight in the main lodge. Tent wedding music to end at 11:15 due to resort and neighborhood quiet hours.

Room Block Information for Guest Lodging

Holiday Acres has 28 guest rooms in our main lodge building and we invite you and your guests to stay with us and enjoy all the resort amenities. Guest rooms have cable TV, free wireless internet, telephone, air-conditioning, valet coffee, irons, and ironing boards, and microwaves/refrigerators. Rooms have a king or queen beds and some have whirlpool tubs or gas fireplaces. Many rooms have a view of the lake and pets are allowed in pet-designated rooms. All of the guest rooms are non-smoking. Holiday Acres also has 1, 2, 3, and 4 bedroom fireplace cottages, a 5-bedroom vacation home and a 6-bedroom vacation home. Please visit our website, www.holidayacres.com, to view these cozy cottages and homes. Some restrictions apply for booking cottages.

As an incentive for the bride and groom to encourage their guests to stay with us, we offer (with a ten room 2 night stay minimum) a 10% credit to the bride and groom for each room night that is booked. We require a two-night minimum stay. Rooms must be booked by phone with our reservation desk. Those made on line are not eligible for the 10% credit. Twenty days before, if there are Guest Rooms available, the two night minimum will be waived for Lodge rooms and single night reservations may be made at the regular room rate, not the wedding rate and the 10% credit will not be applied. Single night reservations are not offered in cottages at any time. If an existing reservation is changed from two to one night, the deposit will be forfeited for the cancelled night. Your guests must pay a one night deposit on the room at the time their reservation is made. Please have your guests mention the room block name when making reservations. Our cancellation policy will be explained to the guest when their reservation is made. The location of guest rooms reserved within your party cannot be guaranteed, however, please know that we will do all we can to honor your requests. Check-in time is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 am for Guest Lodge rooms.

Thirty days prior to your wedding, any room not reserved in your block will be released (Sixty days in the summer months.) If you choose to keep some rooms open in your block, the non-refundable deposit for these rooms must be paid by the Bride and Groom. If your guests reserve these rooms, they would pay the deposit and you would receive the deposit money back for these rooms.

A minimum of 10 rooms/cottages is required to be eligible for this credit. The room rate for your guests will be the published rate based on the lodging rate schedule.  Reservations must be made direct with Holiday Acres Front Desk. Reservations made through on-line travel sites do not qualify.

The earned room credit will be given to the bride and groom after all rooms have been paid, usually upon check-out. This credit may be used by the bride and groom towards their lodging, their wedding food and beverage, or with a Holiday Acres gift certificate to be used for future lodging or dining in the Three Coins Dining room.
