I was recently the "Day of Coordinator" for my friend's wedding which was held at beautiful Little Piney Lodge in Hermann, MO. I was BLOWN AWAY by the beauty, flexibility, and usefulness of the venue itself, but most impressive and AMAZING are the owners, John and Julie. I was on the property for three days total (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), there was not a minute that one of them was not present. John was constantly manicuring the lawn to perfection and making sure all of the buildings looked perfect for the wedding party, family, and guests. There are two main cabins on the property for family/friends to stay and they are both awesome, updated, and cleaner than any hotel you could find! The main cabin has a HUGE living space, dining room, and kitchen with large windows that look over the entire property. It was so useful for the day of the wedding when family and wedding party were in and out and trying to get ready. The groom's family hosted the rehearsal dinner at the top of the hill under twinkling lights (kept in impeccable shape by John and Julie) with bonfires, music, and s'mores. There are two options for wedding reception, one inside a vintage barn that boasts large barn doors to add an outdoorsy feeling. The other option is the pavilion, which is also beautiful, but a more "outside" option. Julie was so amazing. She never missed a beat the entire weekend. She knew the schedule of events and was there to help (if needed) for each detail. I think what makes this venue so awesome is that Julie and John care so much that their guests have an amazing experience. Even their kiddos chipped in to help at times....How cool! If you are looking for a rustic, laid back, relaxed vibe...look no further!! I will be telling everyone about this one, and I know the bride and groom were blown away. Their day could not have been more perfect!
My wife and I had our wedding at Little Piney in August of this year (2015). We chose the venue because it offered the flexibility for an outdoor, semi-indoor, and indoor ceremony and/or reception. This was an extremely valuable quality to have in a wedding venue. The place is kept up beautifully and the accommodations are excellent. It also provides guest housing which is very convenient and also helps cut down on the cost for traveling family members. Overall the venue is excellent and provided a great backdrop for our wedding. Our family, friends, and guests were all impressed with the venue. While the venue was great the best part of Little Piney are the operators (Julie and John). They were accommodating, helpful, and went well out of their way to help us out with the little hiccups that came up during the wedding. I cannot say enough about their professionalism and the great service they provided. From beginning to end they were there to make our wedding as special as possible and we are grateful to them for their hospitality. The venue and the operators provided us a situation that minimized the stress of putting on a wedding and allowed us to focus on our wedding day. We had an unbelievably great wedding weekend. If you are looking for a beautiful country setting for your wedding this is definitely the place.
John and Julie were amazing to have along the way! The venue is for the entire weekend, however, they are there from day one in helping plan everything. When my husband and I decided on Little Piney for our wedding, we knew that we made the right choice. They went over the top to make sure our day was perfect!
I don't even know where to start! My former classmate was married here and after seeing her pictures I was sold. I knew this was the place for us; I wanted somewhere where the ceremony and reception were both held. What we ended up getting was more than we could have ever expected. John and Julie are astonishing; as I am typing this up I get teary eyed remembering all of the gracious things they did for not only myself, but for everyone. The month of my wedding was apparently hurricane season and it rained for two weeks leading up to our day, our wedding day the sun was shining and it was absolutely beautiful! The whole morning John was out side working on the pathway; blowing off water so I would not get wet walking down. We lost my pot for our unity tree and Julie went and made us a burlap bow to cover up the "ugly plastic pot." It was unexpected and our of Julie's job description but it was those little things that eased our day. We also had our shuttle service just leave us, so John is helping the dads call around to find another shuttle service to help us out. With that disaster going on that led us to our ceremony being an HOUR late; yes I know ridiculous. With that being said I was upset, this meant I would have a very short ceremony for all of these people who came from all over for us...well that was not the case. I don't even think my dad finished asking them if our ceremony could be extended an hour before they said yes, of course. It wasn't even a question for them. They saved our day in so many ways; we got to spend our wedding day with the best people we could have imagined. John and Julie went out of their way to help us, not being they had to but they wanted to. They are extraordinary people and I would recommend their venue to anybody. We were truly blessed finding this venue and having such accommodating people.
I am looking forward to having my wedding at little piney lodge next yr. My fiancé and I had a few places in mind, that fit, on how we wanted our day to be and feel. First stop was little piney, and didn't need to view any place else after seeing the breathtaking views. This place has everything you need. We won't need much decorating either. Maybe some personal touches but that's it. This place is exquisite mike and karen have put so much thought and time to 'your' big day. I love how personal and down to earth they are. They take time to get to know you and what you want. We highly recommend a tour for viewing you definitely wont regret it.
We absolutely could not have been a more happy with our wedding at Little Piney! John and Julie we incredibly helpful and accommodating. We hosted our rehearsal dinner, had our ceremony and reception on site and loved having a different area to do each! If you are looking for an outdoor venue and a great weekend, this is the place for you!
We found Little Piney Lodge on the Hermann Wedding Trail and it was the most perfect venue for our wedding. They have indoor and outdoor options, which came in handy because we ended up moving our reception indoors, due to the cold, and I'm so thrilled we did! The Festiv Hof barn is just beautiful. The staff at Little Piney are super responsive and are on site all weekend, to help wherever they can. The on site lodging is spectacular and we couldn't be more excited with how the wedding turned out.
If I could, I would give them over a five star rating. They are under new ownership and the owners are beyond words... Awesome! They were more than helpful with everything. We even needed lightbulbs for our chandelier and John, the owner, went and got some for us! They made sure everything was covered and everyone in our wedding loved how responsive and kind John and his wife, Julie were! This is a one of a kind place. If you are looking for a place in Hermann to have your wedding, this is the place! Free to decorate any way you want and they will help set up and take down. This place was beyond what we could have imagined. So happy we had our wedding here!
Although this venue is a little out of the way, I couldn't have asked for a better place to have my wedding and reception. We got to stay in the cabins on site both Friday and Saturday night (wedding was on Saturday) with 10 other guests which made transportation and setting up/taking down decorations easy. The owners, Karen and Mike, were very nice and responded quickly to any questions I had whether it was through email or by phone. They really helped make the day as stress-free as possible. There is an outside and inside area for receptions which makes it easy to plan for rain or heat (inside barn is air conditioned). This place is perfect for any bride who wants the country/nature feel to their wedding day. I was extremely happy with this venue.
Just perfect in every way! Mike and Karen are wonderful. Best place for the ultimate earthy, rustic, romantic feel!
Loved, loved, LOVED absolutely everything about my wedding at Little Piney Lodge. Mike and Karen are some of the nicest people you'll work with during your wedding planning, and their quick responses to emails was very appreciated. They do a great job of keeping the venue looking gorgeous. Mike was out at 8am on the wedding day mowing the lawn and doing last minute touchups to ensure that everything was perfect.
We had the bridal party stay on-site with us in the cabins on the night before the wedding, and it was so convenient to have everyone in spot. Karen and Mike allow your hair/makeup artists to come directly to you at the cabin, so you don't even have to worry about leaving the site once you're there.
We had minimal decorations, because the venue is just gorgeous in itself. Mike provided us with some shepherd's hooks which we lined the ceremony walkway with, and hung some mason jars with flowers from them. We chose to have our reception inside the barn, because we wanted that rustic/romantic feel. Plus, it was air conditioned! Karen has an array of different table cloths colors to choose from, and they let you arrange the tables in whatever fashion you prefer. We just brought in our centerpieces, and other than that, the reception area was already set to go. They've hung lights from the ceiling to give it a nice atmosphere, so you really don't need to go out and get a lot.
If I could re-do the whole experience, I would choose Little Piney Lodge every single time. We got a TON of compliments from our guests, and the day was absolutely perfect.
Beautiful scenery, pleasant atmosphere, great price!
My daughter had her wedding and reception at Little Piney Lodge last weekend. I have nothing but praise for the place and the owners. Mike and Karen were flexible, helpful and friendly throughout the weekend. The lodge was spectacular, the location for the ceremony was perfect. We had the reception under the pavilion, 180 people were nothing but elated. The waterfall and lights were a perfect compliment to the evening. I would recommend this venue to anyone. The convenience of having the wedding party in the two cabins/lodge on the same grounds as the ceremony and reception is a great logistic benefit.
We used Little Piney Lodge for our wedding venue. My husband and I wanted something that we could have the wedding and reception all in the same place with a laid back setting. This venue was beyond what we imagined. It had a lodge that the wedding party stayed in that night as well and a log cabin that my husband and I stayed in.
The owners were very helpful when it came to last min. details. Our wedding day was very HOT. They provided us with tents and fans to cool our guest off.
Gorgeous property! Highly recommend! A great destination wedding close to home in the Midwest! We could not have imagined a more wonderful place to have our wedding. If you are getting married in the Hermann area you must make it out to visit the Little Piney Lodge. The entire property is beautiful and both of our families were able to stay at the property with us. We had 100 guests that came down from the Chicago area and made a weekend out of it. I loved that our wedding was so different from the typical banquet hall that flies by. The owners of the Lodge were wonderful to work with and were such a great help. I recommend calling The Hermann Trolley to take your guests to and from wedding, the guests said the ride was a blast. Also, Angie from Trailside Catering.. They work there regularly and know where everything is, what to bring, and our guests loved the food.
I just had my wedding there this May and it was absolutely wonderful. Compared to all the super expensive venues my husband and i looked at this was the top. The best part was how affordable they were. Plus, you get 48 hours to do the things that most vendors expect done in 4 to 6. They allowed everyone involved to simply relax and enjoy. They offer indoor or outdoor area for your wedding which is wonderful and they have rooms there you can rent that are gorgeous and again quite affordable. The couple who owns it are very relaxed and professional which certainly calms you when your trying to plan a wedding. :) I give this place 10 gold stars!
