Lacawac Sanctuary

Cooper’s Catering is proud to work with Watres Lodge at Lacawac for weddings, corporate meetings, private parties and events.

We know that you want a wedding venue that is as unique as you are, so we are proud to present Lacawac Sanctuary, a historic and rustic venue on the National Registry of Historic Places. The place is filled with historic charm, from the thick wooden beams in the carriage house, to the original hardwood floors in the lodge, and of course the charm of a beautiful nature sanctuary. We make sure that the space is perfect for you and your party. We can host ceremonies and receptions for up to 150 people! Historic accommodations are available in our 1903 lodge and ice house cottage.

At Lacawac, the rental fee is affordable. So, the money you save allows you the opportunity to add little touches that reflect your style. The rental of Lacawac Sanctuary directly benefits our mission of preserving and protecting our natural and historic heritage.

Contact us to set up a private tour of the facility. We would love to show you what we have to offer and how we can make your wedding day better than your wildest dreams!
