It was a dream come true and the most fun we’ve had at a wedding

  • 5 of 5

It was everything we were looking for! It’s not far from everything in town but it felt like we were alone in the country. Everything was beautiful and well cared for. Highly recommend this venue for a wedding. And the staff took very good care of us! They were helpful and kind. They sincerely wanted us to be happy.

Gorgeous wedding venue!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most beautiful wedding at BCL in their barn! It was a great location because we were all able to get ready in the house which made it easier to get some of our pictures done prior to the start of our ceremony. Dawn & Andy are outstanding, genuine, and loving people who want nothing more than for your day to be everything you dreamed of and they will do anything and everything to make that happen. You won't find a place like this anywhere else!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Lake - something for everyone. Quiet kids snorkeled in the middle of the lake, swam, kayaked the perimeter looking for frogs, and picked up the ziplining kids. Adventurers did the zipline over and over. The big waterslide could be done from the top (very fast!) or from the middle. The zipline was wonderful - after the initial fear, we got the hang of landing on the water and it was really addictive! Ages 11-46 enjoyed. :) The zipline needs to be detached and reattached each time. It's pretty helpful to have kids in paddleboats picking up the zipliners - easier to detach the zipline and get zipliner back to shore, but it detaching and getting back to shore can be done solo (if you are an adult who swims.) The lake is deep, so you need to be able to swim or wear a life vest. When we stayed, there were two adult vests, two kid vests, and several toddler vests for beach fun. Plenty of room on the beach for the youngest ones.

Agreed that it's not always private, but the owners do a good job of trying not to impact your stay with work being done on the next door rental. They are accessible - just keep contact.

Indoors was wonderful. Our family had a great time, had plenty of room. We were surprised by the new flat screen TV above the fireplace (not pictured) and the DirectTV service. There were plenty of couches and throw blankets so we could all hang out comfortably in the evenings.

Location is about 20 minutes from Aurora train station - we just couldn't get organized enough to take the train into the city, but it's definitely an option if you are looking for a relaxing place as short-term work commute.

One drawback was the water - a sulfur smell. Sometimes that is municipal and isn't year-round - I don't know. Had we known, we'd have picked up a few gallons for coffee/tea and drinking water.

We would definitely go back - we had a great time!

The kids can't wait to come back next summer! The weather was perfect - something for everyone! We had an amazing weekend! The barn was perfect for our mom's 90th birthday celebration with family & friends! Thank you!

Nice Place With Lots of Kitsch & Comfort

  • 4 of 5

This was a really unique place to spend some time. It has a small private lake with really nice beach and plenty of water toys to use, along with pedal boats, kayaks and a canoe. We didn't use the 2 water slides as they were not operational during most of our stay. The hot tub worked and we enjoyed it. The gas powered outdoor fire fit was great for smores. The inside and outside were decorated nicely with plenty of comfortable furniture and kitschy signs that we had fun reading. Their indoor "outhouse" was well done and clever. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We did not sleep anyone in the loft as it felt warm and stuffy despite a portable A/C unit up there. The rest of the place was quite comfortable. All in all, it was a good experience for a few days away.
