Your wedding day is so much more than a celebration — it’s the first day of the rest of your lives together, and one you’ll reflect back on fondly forever. That’s why we believe your special day should be spent someplace beautiful, peaceful and timeless. At Odyssey Resorts, we’ll make sure your wedding is as unique as you are, in an unforgettable setting on the North Shore surrounded by trees and the waves of Lake Superior. Discover five of the top reasons people choose to make Odyssey part of their wedding here.
1. Conveniently close to home
With eight stunning resorts between Duluth and Grand Marais, gathering at Odyssey for your event is easy for you — and your guest list. Whether you’re located in the Twin Cities or in the broader Midwest, you can arrive at your venue in just a few hours. No plane transfers, ride shares, or long travel waits required. This means more of your relatives and friends can join in to help celebrate you! Plus, there’s plenty of space for everyone to sprawl out. With the close proximity to your home, you’ll also be able to bring everything you need with you before you arrive, make yourself at home in your resort of choice and get ready for the big day.
2. Stunning Lake Superior scenery
Lake Superior is a one-of-a-kind location for your wedding, and a truly memorable place to exchange vows. With endless waves, open skies, and the sounds of nature around you, you can keep the focus on one another amid breathtaking beauty. From the moment you arrive, through your final departure, you’ll have the chance to spend every second right on the shore or soaking up views overlooking the water. Nothing beats the North Shore scenery for your ceremony and the photos you’ll cherish afterward.
3. Spaces designed to fit your vision
Odyssey Resorts’ venue areas are spacious and versatile, meaning we can accommodate a wide range of guest list sizes to bring your vision to life. Receptions take place in a newly-renovated space on the lake level, with a banquet area that can accommodate up to 160 people. We’ll arrange a ceremony that matches your style, whether that’s indoors or outside, and larger or more intimate. With plenty of cozy and comfortable sleeping accommodations for every preference, from lodge rooms to 4-Bedroom Homes, your wedding party, friends and family have the option to stay steps away from the wedding celebration while having their own space to settle in.
4. Exceptional hospitality
Wedding planning often entails a lot — fortunately, we’ve hosted many of them. We’re here to help with the smallest details, the big ones, and each step in between. Odyssey Resorts’ on-site wedding and event coordinators provide the attention, care and expertise needed to execute your day seamlessly and bring everything to life. Leave the day-of coordination, catering, vendor management and more to our trusted staff.
5. Amenities and activities ensure your guests will have a blast
Love to hike, kayak, mountain bike or ski? Your guests can experience hands-on outdoor activities like these all year round based on the season to get a taste of the North Shore. For those who prefer to kick back and relax, a sauna, massage or cocktail by the fireplace offer the perfect way to unwind. No matter who’s on your guest list, Odyssey Resorts has elegant, comfortable spaces for all types of groups, and the entertainment that will keep them busy throughout their stay — one less thing to worry about that truly goes a long way.
