Tucked away in the forested rolling hills of Howey-in-the-Hills, the Mission Inn Resort provides a scenic and stunningly beautiful setting for weddings, events, retreats, conferences, and most of all golfing.
With services like on on-site spa, onsite catering and on-site event planning services, it is no wonder that the Mission Inn is one of the most popular places in Lake County, Florida to host a wedding. This breathtaking location is only 35 miles from Orlando and only minutes drive from our Leesburg-Tavares hotel. Wedding can be held at one of several venues including a courtyard surrounded by Corinthian columns overlooking a lake, indoors with a Spanish-style inspired motif, or in the many gardens which help to define this 1,200 acre Resort.
In addition to the banquet halls and gardens, Mission Inn provides a world-class golfing experience with two notable courses; El Campeon and Las Colinas. Both courses are located on the Mission Inn estate, some bordering the event venues and providing a manicured panoramic view of the courses. El Campeon’s is known for its 85 feet of elevation change and its long history. It is one of the oldest golf courses in the United States and is known for a challenging but satisfying game of golf. Las Collinas is quite the opposite. With gentle slopes, broad fairways, and gradual, minor topography changes it is a good course for those who want to simply enjoy playing without worrying about challenging holes or elevation changes.
Although the course is an amazing venue for weddings or a game of golf, if you are watching your budget or if the resort is sold out of guestrooms, consider having our Hampton Inn hotel of Leesburg-Tavares host your group. We are only 10 minutes drive from Mission Inn. We know that not all wedding guests want to break the bank when visiting and we promise them the utmost in service if they choose our Hampton Inn hotel.
