Wow. We were blown away by everything from Grand View.
Throughout the whole planning process Becky & Jaci were so kind, professional, organized and prompt. I know it's their job to help couples plan a wedding, but they go above and beyond and you can tell they truly care about making your day the best experience for you and your guests. We are so grateful for all they did for us!
The property is obviously gorgeous as were all the spaces we used during our weekend. We had a small wedding of 55 guests. We had the ceremony outside at the Grand Staircase which is so beautiful. However, their new Chapel that can be used as a backup location if weather doesn't cooperate looks awesome as well!
We had our cocktail hour outside on the lower terrace of the main lodge which we LOVED. We were able to rent yard games for our guests to play, the bar was set up outside and there was a nice fireplace as well.
Our dinner/reception was held in the Headwaters Dining room in the lower level of the main lodge. What a perfect space this is for a smaller group. Very elegant and intimate feeling. The staff and food were also awesome! We did all of our catering (including dessert and late night food) through Grand View.
Honestly, I feel so lucky we were able to have our wedding here. It was so fun having our friends and family stay for the weekend and everything exceeded our expectations. Even though we had a smaller wedding, we were treated amazingly throughout everything. If you are considering GVL for your wedding - you will be so happy with your decision to work with them!

We had an excellent experience working with GVL for our wedding. We faced the extra challenge of planning our wedding from afar, but the GVL team made it easy for us to organize everything from our rehearsal dinner to the ceremony and reception. They also proactively coordinated with our other vendors to ensure that everything was in place and went smoothly on the big day. The team is very friendly and professional, and we enjoyed working with them. Also, as a venue GVL is beautiful, particularly in the summer time. The perfect place for a summer wedding!

We could not be more happy with our decision to celebrate our day at Grand View Lodge! The staff was amazing and very helpful in planning all the details. A special thank you to Becky who was our main contact. She was able to walk us through all of the decisions and details and had great suggestions too. We even decided to make a very last minute change in ceremony location that she handled, allowing us to relax and enjoy our day. The food was absolutely delicious! We received numerous compliments from our guests about the venue and food. If you're searching for that place and reading this review, this is our recommendation. Plan a weekend trip to Grand View Lodge and see for yourself. Stay in one of the many lodging options, eat at the restaurants, and if you can, schedule a meeting with one of their wedding planning staff members. It is even a great place to consider if you are planning your day during the off season. We wish those looking the best of luck in their venue search and hope that you will consider GVL.
