The Ruttger’s staff went above and beyond any of our expectations

A year ago at this time my daughter decided she wanted a fall wedding at Ruttger’s on Bay Lake where we have vacationed a number of times over the years. We envisioned a beautiful fall day with colored leaves, sunshine and fabulous food.

On September 29, 2018 she got the fabulous food, but the rest, fall nature did not provide. It sprinkled and even snowed, but the ceremony went on by the lake. It was wonderful! Wedding guests talked about the event for months.

Bay Lake Villas

Lodging Amenities

When your big day is done, rest assured that you will sleep well. Ruttger's lodging options include cabins, condos and villas, as well as traditional hotel-style rooms – inspired by the beauty of Bay Lake.

Wherever you choose to stay, you will be just steps away from the lodge, restaurants, coffee shop, pools, beaches and all of Ruttger’s other amenities.

Lodging Blocks

Availability of lodging blocks is based on seasonal demand. As a seasonal resort, we do not offer courtesy room blocks. All dedicated room blocks will require a credit card deposit to ensure the group is coming, and a minimum room expectation.

A signed agreement between the client and resort will be required to reserve lodging exclusively for your group. Current policy requires a two-night minimum stay on weekends Labor Day through Father's Day, a three-night minimum stay is required for holidays and weekends Father's Day through Labor Day.

The Fine Line Salon & Spa

Did someone say "spa?"

Every wedding should include a healthy dose of pampering. Let the talented team of stylists do your hair or simply enjoy a manicure, pedicure, or massage.
