Create the Experience of Your Dreams

As beautiful as it is, the setting is only part of what makes the Nicollet Island Inn the perfect wedding destination. Attentive personal service, a dedicated staff, on-site accommodations, and world-class cuisine help create the experience you’ve dreamed about!

  • Attention – Our Special Events Director will work closely with you to ensure you are well cared for and your wedding is spectacularly planned.
  • Atmosphere – Our charming event spaces can accommodate small groups of 8-24 or larger parties of up to 175 guests for a seated dinner or 200 for a heavy hors d’oeuvres reception.
  • Appetite – Executive Chef Michael Rain’s menu is one to remember—from hors d’oeuvres and canapés to top-quality meats, fresh seafood, and vegetables complemented by locally grown herbs and custom-made sauces. With catering on-site, that’s one less to-do on your planning checklist.
  • Accommodations – Once your wedding is booked, reserve hotel room blocks at special pricing for out-of-town guests. We also offer a Bridal Ready Room, a private suite for your party to get ready in on the big day.
  • And more! – Stay and celebrate with us a little longer! We’d love to offer package pricing for hosting your bridal shower, bachelorette outing, rehearsal dinner, and/or post-wedding brunch at the Inn.
