Getting married at LakeStar Farms was an absolute dream! The landscape, venue, and “Dairy Cottage” are simply stunning. Thank you for being such a gracious host at your beautiful venue, Adam!

LakeStar Farms is the best barn venue in Northern Michigan hands down! I give it 5 stars only because six isn’t available!!

I do not know any other venue owner that will go above and beyond like Adam Dontz. Adam allowed our little team of six access to the barn a few days early so we could decorate. He coordinated all our rental equipment and then jumped in to help. If you are looking for a barn venue, LakeStar Farms is it!

Adam was so awesome to work with and I love that you let us take our vision and run with it! You were there for me every step of the way, especially when it was pouring buckets in the morning of our wedding and I was stressing out. You calmed me, and did so many other things to ensure everything was perfect! My family and friends noticed how helpful and on the ball you were. It was a pleasure to work with you and get married in your beautiful barn! I honestly can’t say enough amazing things about you and the farm!! Jarred and I can’t wait to come back for a visit!

If Brett and I could give LakeStar Farms more than 5 Stars we would! There aren’t enough positive words that we can say about our entire experience – you just must experience it yourself. We are so glad we chose LakeStar and we would do it all over again without and regrets!

LakeStar is a five-star facility in every aspect – from breathtaking views to stunning architecture & amenities. Adam worked tirelessly to reschedule our daughter’s wedding reception from the original COVID shutdown, and he was so accommodating answering our questions, day or night. This was a destination wedding and Adam’s vendor recommendations made it nearly a turnkey process.

LakeStar is an absolutely stunning venue and the lodging in the “Dairy Cottage” is beautiful and modern. Adam really cared about making the process of planning easy for us and about making our wedding the best it could be! Adam is fast to offer help, event before you know you need it!! If you want a gorgeous venue and someone to put your mind at ease, choose LakeStar Farms.

LakeStar Farms was 100% amazing! The venue’s cathedral ceilings are stunning, and we comfortably fit almost 285 guests!! As a bride, and a photographer, the venue and landscape offered a ton of great locations for pictures and video. And, Adam made the planning and our wedding day stress free. You cannot go wrong with LakeStar.

LakeStar Farms is easily one of the best Northern Michigan event venues. There are so many beautiful places for photo opportunities throughout the estate. We have so many amazing photos we will cherish forever. Lake Michigan sunts on the horizon are breathtaking. We highly recommend LakeStar for your special day.

LakeStar is a gorgeous venue! Farm chic, on point!

Megan f. | 2019

I attended my friend’s wedding in August 2019 and this venue was breathtaking! The wide-open spaces, restored barn, and not to mention the photography opportunities! Was a gorgeous wedding and wish a venue like this was available where I live. I definitely recommend!

Pat and I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond in making our daughter Lauren’s wedding reception a success!! You were more than accommodating-always asking “what can I do for you, or “what do you need”. And then to work your tail off to complete that beautiful patio out the back of the barn!! It’s just and amazing venue. I wish you every success!

The barn and the landscape are just stunning and their beauty speaks for itself. Decorations will only enhance the natural beauty already present. LakeStar Farms is truly one-of-a-kind and being a one-of-a-kind gal, I knew in a heartbeat LakeStar was the venue for us!
