Gordon Lodge is a wedding venue in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin. The lodge has been around for more than a century. It is a lakeside property where guests can relax and enjoy the views. Founders Dr. A.J. Gordon and his wife built their first summer home on the water of North Bay and after years of hosting friends and family, Mrs. Gordon and her son established the resort. It was a family owned business that continued to expand until the 130 acre property was purchased by John and Wendy Tinnon. John and Wendy updated much of the facilities while keeping the same spirit alive.

My husband and I were married at Gordon Lodge over Columbus Day weekend of 2014.Sent on 03/18/2015
We had always wished to have a fall wedding and can now honestly say that there is no better setting in the midwest for, not only an event set in the autumn, but for any season. Gordon Lodge is idyllic. From the grounds, to the harbor, to the accommodations, to the service, you could not dream of a better location.
If the surroundings weren't enough, the staff at Gordon Lodge is some of the best we have ever encountered. Amy Gorham, the catering and events manager, is extremely attentive and dedicated to making sure that your special day is perfect. Amy also serves as the on-site coordinator during any of the events. Her attention to detail is unparalleled! We literally did not have to worry about one thing the entire weekend.
John and Wendy, the proprietors, are also involved with most of the day to day operations and are always there to lend a helping hand. In fact, John tended bar at the rehearsal dinner and during the cocktail hour before the reception - with Amy's help, you know things are going to go as planned!!
Lastly, the food provided by Gordon Lodge is fantastic. Our reception dinner food was exceptional, but the pizza at the rehearsal dinner was, for a crowd from Chicago, out of this world!!!
So, all this said, if you are considering Gordon Lodge for your wedding event(s), don't think twice...book it now!

My husband and I had our wedding here in October, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Cayla was a godsend. We were planning our wedding in the midst of moving from the east coast to the west coast, and while one of us was looking for a new job. Cayla is a great communicator and responded to our emails very quickly. If she didn't know the answer to something right away, she would find out the information promptly from someone else. Everything was straight-forward from the very beginning and we didn't have to deal with any unexpected surprises throughout the planning process or on the day of our wedding. Cayla also helped keep us on track with decision-making along the way so that we weren't scrambling for last minute solutions. At the same time, she remained very flexible and had backup plans available if the weather did not cooperate for our outdoor events. The professionalism of the entire staff, their organization and efficiency, and their friendliness is something to be commended. Gordon Lodge really made the entire planning process and our wedding day stress-free!Sent on 11/25/2017

We had our wedding reception here and everything was perfect! Amy, the wedding coordinator is amazing and so helpful. The venue is great, with so many unique qualities. The staff was wonderful. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the location and the venue was. They have a Boathouse for a rehearsal dinners, have brunch every morning for hotel guests and if the weather is great there are bikes, kayaks, a pool. Beautiful sunsets and close to everything Door County has to offer. I highly recommend Gordon Lodge and to make a destination wedding weekend out of it!Sent on 11/03/2017
