Unforgettable Memories


Built in the early 1950s, Eagles Nest on the Lake has been a destination for weddings, events and receptions throughout the years.


With over a mile of shoreline and spreading over 101 wooded acres, the Nest is located on the tranquil West Frankfort Lake within minutes of Illinois Interstate 57. 

The Lodge

A rustic, stonewalled Lodge surrounded by full-view windows on three sides. The Lodge is 6,000 square feet with white tables and matching chairs for over 300 guests. Includes a floor to ceiling wood-burning fireplace warms the heart and soul.


The Pavilion

Spreading over 4,000 square feet, the open-air raftered Pavilion can host up to 400 guests. Overlooking the lake, the Pavilion invites the outdoors to surround your special event. Heating, air conditioning, and retractable glass doors makes this beautiful space perfect for any season throughout the year.

Lakeside Stage

With a gorgeous view of the lake, this perfect lakefront venue makes a memorable setting that simply can't be forgotten. Any time of the day or evening poses a great location for meetings, receptions and gatherings.

Guest Lodging

Our cottages are newly updated with beautiful rustic charm. Currently, we offer the Eagle's Hideaway and the Hummingbird House. Both cottages are conveniently located next to the venue. The Eagle's Hideaway is a four bedroom, two bathroom cottage with a bridal prep room that's perfect for the bridal party or large groups of out of town guests. Our Hummingbird House is a one bedroom cottage complete with a full bathroom. Both cottages have heating and air conditioning, a TV, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, luxury bedding, and queen beds.
