They make dreams come true!
This review is a little late, I apologize, however it has taken me this much time to reflect on this amazing experience.
We were married on September 18th, 2020 with our original date of July 31st 2020 having to be rescheduled due to COVID.
I cannot say enough great things about this place in a review, but I will try.
From the beginning of our journey with the Forest House Lodge, it was absolutely meant to be. Our first meeting with Jennifer Price in March of 2019 was nothing short of wonderful. She sat with us and went over all of the details, answered all of our questions and there was no pressure to book right away, even though we did! She gave us the grand tour and even took us to the ceremony site in the snow!! It was gorgeous as expected and even though we couldn't see all of the details of the grounds we were won over between the venue itself and Jennifer's great personality and charm.
Fast forward to February 2020, we attended the big tasting party they held at the lodge and were able to party it up with some of the other couples who were due to get married in 2020. We met some lovely couples and had a great time, as well as getting to meet (unofficially) our wedding coordinator, CHENOA TAYLOR, who little did we know, would go above and beyond to help make our (my) visions come true!!!! This lady, where do I start, she walked me through the process on several occasions and was no less than a dream to work with!!! Even when our wedding was postponed when California shut down, Chenoa made sure that we were clear on everything, and she put me at ease when we were to reschedule. She made sure that my vision to make our guests as comfortable as possible during this COVID crisis by moving all events outdoors was made a reality and everything went off without a hitch (at least as far as I knew).
This place is like a well oiled machine. Every staff member is their own piece to your puzzle. They have only the best of the best running things here, and it is not hard to see why, Monica and Patrick (the owners) really know how to run things, and they do so very elegantly.
Fast forward again to the actual event- IT WAS NOTHING SHORT OF MAGICAL!!!
REHEARSAL- Everything from the check in to the actual rehearsal, to the rehearsal dinner and after party was just amazing!!! THE FOOD- AMAZING!! , THE BAR- AMAZING!!! Let me tell you, THE BAR- TREVOR HARRINGTON IS THE MAN!!! This guy really knows how to get things going and keep them going!!! He played all the jams and kept our party (and the drinks) flowing!!! AND THAT WAS JUST THE REHEARSAL NIGHT!!
WEDDING DAY- From the moment we got out of bed (in the very comfy and well kept rooms, I might add) was just the best experience I could have even dreamed of. They had breakfast ready for us and the banquet manager, HANNAH, was already getting things set up in the courtyard along with JULIE, JENNIFER, AND CHENOA!! These ladies are something else!!!
They made sure that our guests were well taken care of when they arrived and made sure we all had everything we could possibly want or need.
The ceremony and reception were just TO DIE FOR. I literally can't get over the services we received for what we paid!!! This place and all that comes along with booking here is OVER THE TOP!! A LITERAL STEAL!!!!!
THE CAKE ALONE!!! OH. MY. GOD. THE CAKE.-
MONICA (AGAIN, THE OWNER) SHE IS A LITERAL CAKE BOSS!!! Our cake was beautiful and delicious!! Our guests are still talking about it!!!
After our reception, we had access to the downstairs game room, which was EPIC!!! Again, Trevor Harrington kept our budget and alotted bar tab in check the entire time and kept us going until 6am!!!! We've never met a bartender with the skillset Trevor has, and I doubt we ever will!!! He is all around AWESOME!!!!!
IN CONCLUSION, THIS VENUE IS A DREAM COME TRUE!!!! From the first meeting to the last, you will not be disappointed!!! If you're looking at wedding venues and have your heart set on an outdoor venue with all the fixin's, THIS IS YOUR PLACE!! ALSO- I URGE YOU TO NOT BE PUT OFF BY THE PRICING. IT SEEMED PRICY TO US AS WELL, but once you add up all the expenses individually- the cake, the catering, the alcohol, the wait staff, the decor, the lodging, the price per head on all these things, and the venue ALL SEPARATELY, NOT TO MENTION- AN AMAZING WEDDING COORDINATOR?!?!, I found all these things for a wedding of 100 to be much more than what they charge at the Forest House, and when you think about your wedding day, what are you really willing to sacrifice?!?!
A BIG THANK YOU TO: CHENOA, JENNIFER, TREVOR, HANNAH, JULIE AND MONICA SPECIFICALLY. YOU ALL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR US, AS I KNOW YOU DO FOR ALL OF YOUR COUPLES!!!
WE CANNOT THANK EVERYONE AT THE FOREST HOUSE ENOUGH!!!! YOU ALL TRULY MADE OUR WEDDING DAY, THE BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!

They’ll make your wedding amazing—no matter what!
We just had our wedding at Forest House Lodge on 3.14.2020. It was the most amazing day of our lives. Although we had about half of our guests cancel within the week before due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the staff worked with us to flex and adapt to everything from seating charts to decor, to housing shuffle, to a shuttle company that went MIA, to rainy day back up plans, and snow transport logistics, and made the entire celebration a raving success. This is the place you want to get married if you want a wedding that will turn out amazing no matter what and a venue staff that will take all of the hard parts out of the planning and day of coordination. I’m so happy we picked forest house lodge. Couple of notes on particularly wonderful things: great places to take photos indoors if rain, best cake I’ve ever had, fantastic all-inclusive package, great decor available for free, late nights allowed and encouraged, thoughtful staff that just make it work.Sent on 03/17/2020

BEST wedding ever!
We had so many guests said that our wedding was the best they had been too and we have to give 100% credit to the Forest House Lodge. Not only do they have a wonderful staff, the amount of time spent on the details to make our experience special and one of a kind for us, is quite simply out if this world. Unforgettable views, delicious food (and cake!!!!), and exceptional service is what you will receive with this venue.Sent on 02/19/2020
