Amazing Venue, Caring Hosts
When we first visited Brenwood Lake Weddings, we immediately fell in love with it. The scenery is gorgeous, the facilities are extremely comfortable, and the venue owners (Brenda and Lynwood) are exceptional people and hosts. The log reception hall was the perfect size for what we needed and felt warm and homey. The spot where we had the ceremony was surrounded on three sides by tall trees, making it very green and peaceful. It was what we envisioned for our day before ever seeing this venue. We cannot recommend Brenwood Lake enough. It was absolutely amazing and exactly what we wanted. Brenda and Lynwood went out of their way to ensure we were happy every step of the way.Sent on 01/21/2019

This venue is fantastic for an outdoor wedding, with an indoor option!!!
Our son got married at this venue last weekend, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for an outdoor setting! Most of our friends were from DC, and it was worth the drive for a wedding weekend getaway! It is beautiful with a variety of relaxing settings. Our ceremony was surrounded by trees and the reception dinner was inside the lovely banquet hall. The owners were so attentive to make sure we had everything that we needed! The housing available in the cabins also contributed to creating a family atmosphere with the bridal party and family staying nearby. This site was perfect! And the price was amazing for what you get! And their attention to every detail made us feel comfortable. I highly recommend this venue for anyone who loves the outdoors (but wanting to have an indoor option for the weather)!!

I had my rehearsal dinner as well as my wedding at Brenwood and it was the best choice ever! The owners are super nice and go above and beyond to make sure that your day is stress free and perfect. My guests even the kids had an amazing time, my pictures were stunning, and everyone loved it and told us how beautiful it was. Brenwood is simply the best!
