The Happy Days Lodge at Cuyahoga Valley National Park is a historic wedding venue in a park in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area. This country venue has a breezy feeling that may be attributed to the screened-in porch, which couples can use for their big day. This vintage venue is found 35 minutes from downtown Cleveland.

Perfect intimate wedding
My wife and I fell in love with Happy Days Lodge as soon as we saw the photos online. The following emails, phone calls, meetings, and walkthroughs with the staff only reaffirmed to us that we had made the right choice. They made everything so simple and our special day went so smoothly because of their excellent communication with us and our coordinator and the hard work they put in. On top of all of that, the location is perfect for photos! We recommend Happy Days to any of our family and friends in the area as affordable, beautiful, accommodating, and professional.Sent on 11/04/2019

Great setting for our winter wedding
Happy Days Lodge is a great venue; it's a mix of rustic and elegant. So much is already provided (beautiful lighting, tables and chairs, spaces for both ceremony and reception) and it fit our guest list of 80. The staff is kind and responsive. It was perfect for our winter wonderland wedding!Sent on 02/20/2019

As a professional hospitality firm, we love working with the Conservancy at both Happy Days Lodge & Hines Hill Conference center. Not only are the venues themselves beautiful, but they are extremely functional from an off-site catering standpoint and the Conservancy staff is always on-site to lend a helping hand. We love to work at Happy Days Lodge and Hines Hill! ~Robert J. - Events & Catering
