History
Hodge Podge Lodge was originally built in 1854 for Richard S. Willis, Melros. It has wide plank flooring — some of which still remains in the house — four bedrooms, and story and a half structure. This house was well known in the town of Montgomery and during the Civil War. When housing was hard to come by, Melrose opened its doors to those in need. In the 1960s, the Waldrop family took over the home and renamed it “Cathalorri” in honor of their two granddaughters. When they were living there, they worked to restore the house and bring it back to life. This home did not become known as Hodge Podge Lodge until 2012, when the Weems family opened the doors of the renovated home to the public and turned in into a space for weddings and events as well as a B&B. These caretakers added the brick courtyard, round patio, and pavilion. The venue is now owned by eff and Mistie Angelo who continue to work to preserve the history of the home, while still adding some new additions such as the Redwood pergola, concrete aisle for the brides, a photo lounge, and renovated the open-air pavilion.

    I am absolutely in love with the HPL house! The staff is amazing and they're always working to make this wedding venue better and better! I would 100% recommend this to any couple looking for something unique and vintage inspired. We got married mid-October and we still receive many compliments on how beautiful our wedding was! We were also lucky to stay in the house the weekend after because we were unable to go on a honeymoon. Alfred and the breakfast every morning was the perfect start to our days as a newly wedded couple!

    What blessing it was for us to have our wedding reception here. All staff beginning with the owners to our wedding planner, caterer, DJ, and clean up crew were beyond amazing and so nice. I never felt stressed or worried at any point. Everything was so organized and the night flowed so well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
    Thank you so much, Hodge Podge Lodge! May God continue to bless your business for many years to come :)
