The original Davis Lodge was dedicated in 1932 in honor of H.O. Davis, editor of the Daily Pantagraph. The site of the lodge overlooks the widest expanse of Lake Bloomington and has been the site of various concessions and restaurants over the years. The original lodge had two huge fireplaces which required 50 tons of stone to construct. These fireplaces still remain and provide a warm atmosphere for the City's rental guests.
The newly completed facility is now heated and air conditioned and will accommodate guests throughout the year. Inside the lodge is a large central meeting room with a capacity for 175 persons, a kitchen facility with plenty of countertop space, and a commercial refrigerator and stove. Folding tables and chairs are provided.

The setting is gorgeous! This beautiful log cabin style lodge overlooking the lake made the most picturesque setting for my daughter's wedding! The lodge provided the chairs for our outdoor ceremony and the tables for the reception inside. The chairs had to be carried in from the ceremony to be used for the reception, but everyone pitched in which made it a lot smoother than what I had envisioned. The kitchen is quite large and has a nice big, double door, stainless fridge for keeping all the food and drinks cold. Also available is a freezer for the ice. The bathrooms were nice and big. The air conditioning Was refreshing for the reception as it was a bit on the warm side outdoors. The two large stone fireplaces on each end of the reception area added a rustic appeal for our shabby chic wedding theme. The tables were set up and arranged for us by the grounds keepers ahead of time and the property was manicured very nicely the day before our event. It was an absolutely beautiful setting on an absolutely beautiful day!! I highly recommend this venue! You will not be disapppinted!Sent on 08/22/2017

A very awesome site to work with, also super inexpensive, worked great for small budget. If planned out right, can easily be your least expensive item in your budget!! Loved this venue!!Sent on 07/19/2012
