"I do not know where to begin or how to express how grateful I am of the staff at Lily Lake Resort. My wedding was amazing from start to finish, we are so grateful for Rhonda for all the help and advice that she gave. Our wedding day was Sept 16,2006 a cold and ugly day outside, but that did not matter because everything inside was perfect. Our guest had a great time, I am still getting compliments almost a year later. There are no words to describe the buffet but YUMMY!! the food was amazing and worth every penny - I ate so much that I had to undo my wedding dress! Adam did a great job as our Dj people were dancing all night. I also loved that we were able to have our gift opening the next morning, and we were not rushed. I owe a million thank-you's to everyone at Lily Lake for giving us the best gift of all - So many memories of our wedding day. We enjoyed everything so much that my husband and I decided that every wedding anniversary will be celebrated at Lily Lake."

AISI Coordinator HPSD48
In January 2004 Lily Lake Resort hosted our Elders Gathering of 45 individuals for four days. Right from the very first inquiry with the resort we knew we were in very capable hands! I have coordinated and held many functions at various locations and the Lily Lake Facility and the staff were absolutely the best! The setting provided the right atmosphere to accomplish the goals of our meeting and we felt so welcomed and enjoyed the special treatment we received. Lily Lake should be very proud of the resort and grateful for such friendly, capable, caring staff!

“On behalf of the staff at Norwood Child & Family Resource Centre I would like to thank you for the wonderful food and accommodations that the staff received at Lily Lake Resort.
This was the second year we chose Lily Lake to hold our staff retreat and again we were not disappointed. The environment and staff were welcoming and met all of our needs for the two days that we were there.
Thank you to Rhonda for all of your hard work to ensure that we would have everything that we needed.
Lily Lake is like a little piece of home away from home. The rooms are fantastic and the food was delicious. Please ensure that all staff at Lily Lake is made aware of the wonderful hospitality they show and the hard work that they display.
Again thank you for taking such good care of us and we certainly hope that we see you all again next May for our annual staff retreat.”

Once again a very big thank you to all your staff. Much appreciated.”

“ On behalf of the administrators of Greater St. Albert Catholic Regional Division No. 29, I would like to thank you for the superb service provided by you, Rhonda, and your staff during our Administrator’s retreat on August 22nd and 23rd. The meeting room was ideal for the work we wanted to accomplish, the meals were delicious and beautifully served, and the accommodations were clean and comfortable. Our administrators were very pleased and gave your location a 10/10 rating on our evaluation.
The ambiance and the rural location provided us with an opportunity to concentrate on our work, and also to relax mentally and physically. They also enjoyed the hay ride and campfire and the relaxation in provided.
I will not hesitate to recommend your facility and services to other school jurisdictions as I am confident that they would also be very satisfied with Lily Lake Village Resort as their conference or meeting location. Again thank you very much for a great couple of days.”
Emilie Keane-Division Principal
“Now for my comments on the facility, food, service. In short, it was outstanding! I cannot express how impressed and happy my delegates were with everything.
For my own part, it was great to work with Rhonda. She and I got along famously and had a great time prior to and during the conference. She eased my concerns and made everything hum along smoothly. All your other staff was wonderful too. There wasn’t just anything they didn’t do to make us comfortable.
BUT, it was the food! The meals, and particular the Saturday night buffet, was outstanding! Many of my delegates made a promise to themselves to come back with their families and friends to enjoy and share that amazing experience…
Please ensure that your staff…hear our compliments of an excellent job! I’ll be back both personally and professionally with other clients-to be sure! Again, thank you to all at Lily Lake.”

“Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality and for allowing me the pleasure of experiencing the ambiance of your establishment. I have told everyone from Lily Lake to Lac La Biche about the atmosphere, the beautiful lodgings, the exceptional food…
I have recommended to my Board of Governors that we hold our annual retreat at the Lily Lake Village Resort – it has absolutely everything we need and anything we could possibly want AND for a very reasonable price.
Whether or not my Board decides to hold its retreat at your facility, you can be assure that I will be afuture customer. They say the best form of advertisement is “word of mouth”. I plan to spread the word about your facility and to promote its elegance, class and affordability. I will tell people of how I was allowed the privilege of spending my time in beautiful surroundings, dining on wonderful food and drink, and making valuable contacts…”

You were right! You told me that if we stayed there once, we would come back. Well, I would like to reserve (dates), 2003. We will stay overnight again at the Cuddle Inn and probably use the same room.
Thanks again for everything.”
