WHAT ABOUT… 

Do I have to use certain vendors?  Whether it's pork, tacos or quinoa bowls, we want you to serve your guests your favorites.  We do have a list of stellar catering services in the area; we are happy to refer our favorites who love celebrating at the WHC.  

Can we light candles in the pavilion? Yes.  In order to ensure your guest's safety, open flames are something we'll discuss when you sign your contract.

Is Tobacco/Nicotine/e-cigarettes allowed on the premises? There is no smoking (including vapes) allowed inside any of our buildings including the pavilion.  We ask that you kindly remind your smoking/vaping guests to be courteous of others as well as use the provided ashtrays and receptacles.  We'd hate to cut into your security deposit because our staff spend hours cleaning up butts or juul pods.

Can we bring in our own drinks? All drinks must be purchased at WHC and poured by WHC staff.  Thank you for supporting our experienced bartender's right to refuse alcohol to any guests.  Please remind your guests (including the guy your cousin decided to bring who looks old for his age)  that the legal drinking age in MN is 21.

Have an idea? Let’s talk!  We are happy to accommodate your special and personalized requests.  Some of our most common requests include: S’mores set up, “getting-ready” grub, sparkler send-off, ect…

 

Our Grounds

We are located in the heart of the legendary Lac qui Parle wildlife refuge in scenic, western Minnesota.  Within walking distance of our lodge, you can visit MN's largest cottonwood tree, the LQP Dam, an incredible “overlook”, or the historic Mission Church.
