Perfect venue for our personalities.
This place is awesome! They make the whole wedding planning process worry free. The fact that you get the venue for more than a few hours was a huge plus for us, now we can have the sleepover style that we were looking for and our guests don't have to worry about the drive home.Sent on 02/07/2019
The whole layout of Forest House is amazing. There are rooms your guests can rent that all have a theme. The game room is a huge plus, and the food and cake are included in the price of the venue. I can't wait to get married here.

Perfect for a Busy Couple that Wants an Amazing Wedding
Booking at FHL was, by far, the best decision my wife and I made during our wedding planning journey!!! The venue and location are incredible--we were fortunate enough that the weather was beautiful on the day of our wedding that we were able to get married at the ceremony site--it was absolutely breathtaking! As noted in the other reviews, the charm of getting married at FHL is that rather than have a 6-8 hour shindig, you get to spend 1-2 nights (depending on your package) at the lodge with your guests. This was extremely appealing to us, as we have been told by countless couples that the day goes by so fast. The weekend still was a whirlwind, but my wife and I cherished the extra time to visit with our family and friends. The food is incredible and plentiful and the venue makes sure you eat--my wife and I both got to try all the appetizers during quiet moments and quick shoveled a plate of food before making the rounds during dinner--it was so delicious!Sent on 04/03/2019
To top it off, the staff is a dream to work with. The women in sales who "hook" you don't pull any punches, the venue's charges are accurate--there were no "gotchas" or last minute additions that we hadn't specifically agreed to. We were a little nervous about the final bill, but everything was a promised and worth every single penny. Your planner will be your best friend and your most organized wedding champion. We were fortunate enough to have Tuana, and she was absolutely incredible. She worked with my wife and messaged her weekly/daily with updates, logged any changes we had, and ensured everything was executed perfectly on the big day. Tuana coordinated with all the vendors and took all the stress off our plates. My wife and I didn't want to micromanage a lot of decoration or details, so we gave Tuana and staff the reigns, and they made the venue look perfect all weekend. Trevor, the bar manager, will be you and your guests' best friend. He is friendly, approachable, and just so incredibly good at his job. There was never more than a quick wait at the bar the entire weekend and he always had a smile, even late into the night! The catering staff were also so phenomenal all weekend long. The buffets for breakfast and dinner were always fully stocked, the venue was kept tidy throughout the weekend, and there was never a single issue.
My wife and I had the best time at FHL for our wedding. We were extremely sad to drive away Sunday morning, but are very much looking forward to returning to a future cocktail party as a legacy couple... and are crossing our fingers that we get invited to a wedding there in the future!
You cannot go wrong with FHL! They are the leaps and bounds the best bang for your buck!

They made my wedding dreams come true
Hands down could not have found a better wedding venue! I recently got married here on December 15, 2018 and am still on a high from how amazing the weekend was. They treat you like royalty and are so willing to help you bring any reasonable wedding wish to life. My style is unlike most wedding decor (we are more on the rock side/lots of black with skulls and metal music) and the crew at Forest House Lodge delivered better than I could have asked. This venue offers a package deal that includes meals, bar tab, rooms, wedding cake, decor..and yeah it does cost more than I could say but honestly I get why because of the level of the service and quality work you get. For instance, we had our dog in our wedding as our flower girl and minutes before the ceremony we can't find her leash..an employee comes out with her Kate Spade purse strap and gives it to me to use so that we don't have to resort to use a neon orange tie down. I mean come on, who else would do this for someone you don't even know!! And Trevor, the bar manager, hands down one of the coolest, most relaxed, and fun bartenders. I could go on and on about all the people here I am thankful for. If you are looking for a wedding venue, I highly recommend checking this place out! From the moment you start the tour you will be hooked.Sent on 01/10/2019
