We enjoyed every step of the process with Faith and her team at Log Haven. We could not have asked for a better venue, food, or day.

Big thanks to the team at the Log Haven! I did not anticipate all the details a wedding required and the Log Haven team was right there to point out and fill out the gaps. Their service was impeccable, their attention always welcomed. The lunch they served us was delicious... Read More and perfectly executed. We were a total of 18 happy people when we arrived to the Haven, while at the Haven, and when we left the Haven. I would repeat this experience again with them with no doubt or reserve.

Overall, we loved our wedding at Log Haven, but there were definitely a few bad points along the way which I want to make others aware of in case it happens to them. Firstly, the good stuff. Well, the location is amazing - the trees, lake, waterfall...all are so beautiful.... Read More The food was delicious and the serving staff were polite and friendly. We had our wedding in the meadow and then had dinner in the restaurant with a few guests. It was a small wedding. Now, sadly the bad points. We are 99% sure we weren't told about the additional 20% charge of the total amount, but when we asked about it after the shock wore off, we were told by the event coordinator that she 'has worked there for years and has never not told anyone about this cost' and that we were mistaken. She was absolutely correct in stating that it says in the event details that there will be an added service charge, but we naively thought that that was for the meal only. What we don't understand, is why isn't the charge in writing from the very beginning? Why is it just stated as 'service charge?' and not 'a 20% service charge'? We feel like it was really misleading. If all the costs are discussed upfront then there are no surprises later. Secondly, my husband and I were in a long distance relationship, so we had asked that we both be cc'd in the emails so that we both got the information. This was virtually never done despite countless reminders to the event coordinator. I really felt like I was bugging her by constantly reminding her, but I'm not sure why 'reply all' just wasn't pressed after each email! It meant that I missed important information, and as my husband is in the military, he can't always check his emails on a regular basis. I would also ask her a few questions in the email, and would constantly only receive the answer to one of the questions in return, which meant numerous emails back and forth. I understand that they must be busy, but it was really unprofessional. Also, There was a total of 13 people at our wedding. From the beginning, the coordinator knew that it was going to be between 12 and 14 people. A couple of months before I had asked the event coordinator the dimensions of the table so that I could get a table runner made for it and had asked for one long table. She said that wasn't a problem and gave me the dimensions. Then ONE WEEK before the wedding she emailed to tell us that we would be seated at 2 separate tables due to having 13 guests, and that we would be served separately due to having more than 12 guests. That really annoyed us as what's one more guest?! Surely an exception can be made? Luckily, in the end I reminded her about having all my decorations made and she managed to accommodate us, but that was a freak out I didn't need a week before the big day... Really, the main thing was the extra cost. We did accept it in the end (and gave an additional gratuity as the day went really well), we just wish that they were upfront about the exact cost in writing from the beginning, instead of fingers pointing the blame at us 'not remembering' the cost discussion. It does seem like they have got a little too comfortable with their 5* rating, as the customer service was definitely not up to par. Overall, yes, we would recommend Log Haven for your wedding, just make sure you ask about ALL the costs up front. It really is a beautiful place and we had a wonderful day.

That is what drew us there in the first place - the location. It is a beautiful cabin-in-the-woods-feel paired with elegance in a stunning outdoor backdrop. The food was excellent. We chose to have 2 hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour (the only downside was that they ran out of appetizers; I would recommend to other couples to have more than we did!). Everyone loved the hors d'oeuvres. We then did a dinner buffet that was filling and was made with natural ingredients, which also was something we were looking for. The food was loved by us and all of our guests. Faith and her team were really so excellent to work with. They made sure that things flowed seamlessly and that we could enjoy our wedding day without stressing about anything. That, combined with Log Haven’s natural beauty, made this an excellent ceremony and reception venue that we so highly recommend!

I had my ceremony and reception at Log Haven this summer. Everything was absolutely perfect! The scenery cannot be beat, and the location is much more convenient than some of the other mountain venues. It is only three miles up Millcreek Canyon, so it is easy to access, yet... Read More still feels like you're out of the city. The staff was wonderful and the food was excellent! It is a little pricey, but I think the prices are similar to the nicer venues in Salt Lake. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone, but make sure to reserve it well in advance because it is usually booked out a couple months in advance.

I couldn't have been more disappointed in my interaction with Log Haven. I communicated with the venue every day for over a week, expressing my interest in a particular date. As I learned the necessary details, I was consistently assured that my date was available. I asked... Read More several times if it was necessary to provide any kind of down payment to reserve my date and was told it wasn't necessary. Once I was ready to officially announce my date to friends and family, I called Log Haven to provide my credit card information and officially reserve the venue. The individual I spoke with wasn't willing to take my credit card information and asked me to call back the next day, but did assure me that the venue was still available for me. I had a very short engagement, so at that point I communicated to friends and family the date the ceremony would take place and they began booking their flights into town. The next morning, I called Log Haven again to provide payment. Suddenly, I was told that the venue had just been reserved and was no longer available to me. Of course, I expressed my dissatisfaction and rather than being willing to work with me, the women in charge of booking the venue couldn't have cared less and ultimately hung up on me. This put me into complete panic mode and I looked for any venue I could find. Fortunately, Millcreek Inn, just down the street, was available and provided a magnificent experience. The people at Millcreek were completely the opposite of the people at Log Haven. They were legitimately interested in taking good care of me and ensuring the perfect experience. The people at Log Haven, on the other hand, acted like it was my pleasure to be working with them. I'd strongly encourage people to not utilize Log Haven's services. The people at Millcreek Inn are likely to provide a superior experience.

Excellent Venue - Expensive Bar

Reviewed on 10/26/2011 Lindsay B

We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. We were married in the fall and the view was more than amazing. The staff was very attentive and was always checking with me to make sure everything was going as it should. The food was AMAZING I had several... Read More compliments from guests afterwards about how wonderful it was. The only negative was the expense of the alcohol, without being able to provide our own and having them charge the restaurant price it added up very fast. We also had some issues with our bill that have yet to be resolved. Since they caught my groom as we were trying to leave (with all our guests waiting for us outside) he didn't have time to stay and review it with the owner. However, they do have the option of a cash bar. Also, the owner was very rude to my dj when it was time to end the dancing. Instead of warning him that things needed to come to a close he threatened to "un-plug" him if he didn't stop. All in all however it was a great day that we'll never forget.
