Welcome to Lakeside Hall

Memories Made in a Historic Setting

Built in 1927 by the Maryland National Guard and used as the officers club for the US Army until 1998, Lakeside Hall sits resolutely along beautiful Lake Royer in Cascade, MD. With a large deck overlooking the lake, a floor to ceiling stone fireplace, and high ceilings with American Chestnut beams, Lakeside is a perfect place for special occasions.

About Us

On the Lake

Lake Royer has been enjoyed by visitors to the property for 134 years. For just 25 cents you could rent a canoe for the whole day!

Joyce was wonderful to work with! This was the only venue my husband and I looked at and we knew right away it was the place for us. We got so many compliments from our guests too! They have everything you can imagine and then some to include linens, some décor and a full bar!

Megan Humphrey

Not only is the inside of the venue beautiful, the outside is simply stunning as well, sunset pictures out by the lake and amazing photo opportunities by the castle! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Thank you Joyce and everyone who helped make our big day so amazing!

Mark Clements

If I could give Lakeside Hall a million stars, I would. When my husband and I were searching for venues, we knew instantly when we saw Lakeside that no other destination would even come close. The location is stunning, as is the Hall itself--both inside and out!
