Jester Park Lodge


Jester Park Lodge ties rustic beauty with modern amenities in an indoor-outdoor event space that embraces nature and capitalizes on convenience. The Lodge entryway shelters guests under a dramatic extended timber roofline and its expansive covered back deck provides a scenic vista of Saylorville Reservoir and the surrounding woodland. Such architectural features immediately established the building as a premiere venue for weddings, parties and retreats, and as a landmark amid the larger recreation area.


The lodge interior features a large multipurpose space that can be subdivided for small groups, a commercial kitchen, a stone fireplace, modern restrooms and concealed storage area. Wood paneled walls, plentiful windows and an elevated, vaulted ceiling create an atmosphere that’s at once inviting and airy.
