Book Your Wedding with Oak Terrace Resort & Spa


About Us

Oak Terrace Resort & Spa is a hotel and special events venue located in Pana, Illinois. It features a peaceful ambience and is located just minutes from the center of town. This venue features an 18-hole golf course, with a number of decorative water features and mature shade trees. There are indoor and outdoor spaces available for wedding ceremonies and receptions for small or large wedding parties.

The Gazebo Garden is one of the most popular ceremony locations at this venue. It features a large, raised gazebo with white columns and a red shingled roof. Couples exchange vows while standing in the gazebo and because it is raised, all of their guests have an unobstructed view. This space is surrounded by acres of lush green grass and decorative plants. It accommodates 200 guests.

The Lakeside Wedding Pier is located on a small private lake that is just outside of the clubhouse. This space is large enough for up to 300 guests and it is able to be partially covered with a canopy tent for couples who want to provide some shade for their guests. Couples who have their ceremony in this space have the sparkling water of the lake as the backdrop.

The Banquet Room is the largest indoor special event space at this venue. It holds up to 400 guests for a standing reception or 300 seated guests. It features large windows that look out over the golf course and the lake. Custom floor and ceiling lighting elements cast a gentle glow that helps make the space feel warm and inviting.


What You Should Know

Oak Terrace Resort & Spa provides all food and beverage services for weddings. It has an on-site catering team, who creates customized menus to suit the individual needs of each wedding party. Couples choose to just serve appetizers and drinks or to serve a full meal. Those who serve full meals choose from a banquet style meal or a full service plated meal with multiple courses.

There are on-site accommodations available at this venue. Couples are able to book a block of rooms for their event, so that their wedding party is able to stay close together.

We could not have picked a better venue for our wedding and reception. Oak Terrace is a beautiful location with a wonderful staff.

We had our wedding at Oak Terrace Resort this summer and it was absolutely amazing. We found out about them at a bridal show and they were everything we were looking for. Gorgeous venue overlooking the lake and an even better reception hall that allowed us to customize our venue... Read More how we would like. The staff was wonderful and took care of everything for us that day so we didn't have to stress one bit. Katelyn, the wedding coordinator was amazing also. She helped us through everything so it all went smoothly on our big day. I would recommend Oak Terrace Resort to anyone wanting a beautiful outdoor wedding!!

My husband and I just got married in August and we had our wedding reception at Oak Terrece. I honestly don't think I would have chosen to have our reception anywhere else. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, the staff was very helpful and accommodating, the food was delicious,... Read More and the ballroom is beautiful!! We also had a large wedding party and guest list so we had to find a venue that could hold a lot of people comfortably. Oak Terrece was definitely equipped to hold that many people! The total price for the amount of people attended was very reasonable. I would choose Oak Terrece without question if I had to plan my wedding over again!

It was a nice place for a wedding. There were plenty of rooming accommodations for our guests, but there was also a golf tournament the same weekend as my wedding so booking far in advance was necessary. It was a little pricey, but worth it as we had our ceremony and reception... Read More in the same place. It is kind of out in the middle of nowhere so if you need anything you have to get it from there. The scenery is beautiful so our fall wedding looked gorgeous because of all the landscaping.
