Our Thoughts on Granite Springs Lodge
If you love the outdoors, you're going to love Granite Springs Lodge! This gorgeous premier event facility is just 15 minutes east of Mitchell, S.D. off of I-90 and less than 1 hour west of Sioux Falls, S.D. The location of this venue is in one of the most unique and beautiful areas in Southeastern South Dakota.
This sensational land is adorned with its own spectacular spring-fed rock quarry lake. Come to the shore and look into pristine water and see the many varieties of fish. The terrain, trees and topography of the land surrounding the lodge makes for a perfect and relaxing setting.
There's so much this venue offers, including accommodations for up to 115 guests! With hiking, fishing, kayaking and so many more outdoor activities... can you imagine the FUN that can take place for your wedding weekend? Not to mention, with so many unique outdoor areas you will have endless opportunities for stunning wedding photos.
This venue knows how to host a Pinterest-worthy wedding, just wait until you see where your reception will be held! Our favorite part of this venue outside of all it's beauty, is that it's truly a one-stop shop for all things wedding!

There's More Perks to This Venue!
Booking one location for your wedding that can host your ceremony, reception and even accommodations makes everything so convenient!
No awkward gap between the ceremony and reception. You can relax knowing your nearest and dearest are happily nibbling on appetizers while you’re posing for newlywed pictures all over the gorgeous property!
It’s way easier to repurpose décor when your ceremony and reception spaces are at the same place. For example, your ceremony arch can double as the background of your sweetheart table!
CHOOSE YOUR CATERER
This can be a HUGE savings for your wedding and not all venues offer this perk. You can bring in your own outside catering.
CONVENIENT FOR OUT-OF-TOWN GUESTS
With the ceremony and reception all at the same location, it's easier for your out-of-town guests. Plus, they'll have accommodation options on the property!
