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.

Gordon Lodge Summer 2020 Wedding
Amy Starr and the staff at Gordon Lodge made our wedding even more special than we could have imagined, even during a pandemic. Like many couples who found themselves having to reschedule their Spring 2020 wedding due to COVID-19, we went through multiple iterations of wedding plans at different venues in different cities/states at different dates before we were able to finally secure a date and the perfect space at Gordon Lodge in August of 2020. With three weeks-notice, Amy was able to pull together a spectacular and pandemic-safe wedding for us mostly using outdoor space at the Lodge for our trimmed-down guest list of 40 people. She was incredibly responsive and flexible during the whole process, and if she was able to pull together a beautiful wedding like ours in 3 weeks, then we can only imagine what Amy and Gordon Lodge are capable of within a normal wedding planning timeframe. Our guests mentioned their dinner was by far the best meal they've had at a wedding as well. We are incredibly lucky to have been able to celebrate our special day during these times, and have all of our guests remain healthy and safe during and after the event. That is a huge testament to the level of care and detail that Gordon Lodge demonstrated in order to keep our family and friends safe while truly enjoying themselves on our wedding day.Sent on 10/26/2020

Simply the best
This venue is so amazing I don't have enough positive words to describe it. There is great communication to ensure that all of your wishes are met. You can have an amazing outdoor wedding or indoor wedding. The grounds are pristine so photos are exquisite no matter where they occur. You can't go wrong if you choose the Event Center or the Boathouse. It will depend on your budget. Brittnay and Amy are amazing. The staff they have working the events are top notch. We had Gavin and Trisha who assisted us. They were amazing. Gavin and Trisha were very attentive and remembered guests drink orders. Gavin worked both our rehearsal as well as our wedding and he provided an honest genuine service that showed he really cared. He works at the Gordon Lodge beyond weddings and checked in at breakfast. It is a very hands on approach. You will be in great hands. You will have little to plan. You will receive a preferred vendors list which will make that so simple for you. Booking at the Gordon Lodge will be an amazing wedding/easy planning for you. We are so glad we had our wedding there in October 2019.Sent on 10/15/2019
Lodging is amazing and you have so many choices. As the Bride I am so very happy we chose Cabin #14 Walnut. It has the best photo opportunities, a wonderful fireplace (we had an October wedding), great views, a spacious bedroom and I can't even begin about the bathroom......It is the about the same size as the living room with a Whirlpool tub, shower, heated floor, and skylights. So worth it.
The best first look photos take place right outside cabin 14. There is a small bench with a path that look over Lake Michigan. It is breathtaking. In the morning the sunrises are beyond words. Open the windows and you can hear the waves lapping like you have an ocean side suite.
Again, words can not describe how breathtaking, amazing or how you should book your wedding at the Gordon Lodge.

We recently were at the Gordon Lodge for our wedding and hotel room block. We had never stayed at the Gordon Lodge but when we toured the venue we had a great feeling about the property. We loved the uniqueness of the room set up and having individual cabins. We wanted our families to experience something different than your average hotel and let me tell you- everyone LOVED it!!Sent on 10/22/2019
The Gordon Lodge is perfect for your wedding and also your guests stay! There is so much to do right on the property between the heated pool, the running paths, kayaks and then dinner and drinks at The Top Deck! I say heated pool because we got married in October and I didn't think the pool would even be open. Oh it was and heated= bonus!!
We had both our ceremony and reception in the Event Center! It was a dream come true. The venue is beautiful from floor to ceiling and my vision just came to life! Brittany was so wonderful to work with. She is experienced and so helpful with answering any questions we had. She was always so quick to respond and provided good feedback when we needed advice on the food and beverage.
On the day of, I never had to worry about a thing! Brittany and Amy had it covered. The service was top notch! The food was delicious, the servers and bartenders were friendly and we had so many great compliments from our family and friends! The entire day from start to finish was magical!
If you are a Bride or Groom planning your wedding, a family looking for a vacation spot or just maybe the traveler wanting to switch up your traditional hotel- Gordon Lodge is the spot! I have been in the hospitality industry for quite sometime and know a good property when I see one! We are so happy to come across Gordon Lodge and now will always have a place to come back to for our Anniversary!
Thank you to all for making our day so memorable!
