    Perfect location for our wedding reception!

    We were supposed to get married last year (2020), and had booked a different venue (somewhere in Coulterville), then covid happened and we had so many issues with the venue we had, we decided to book somewhere else in the future (and we were so glad we did!) We spent so much time trying to find the perfect venue for our wedding reception, and when we found Lillaskog we literally jumped with joy then stressed out until the next day when we heard back from Diane. Lillaskog was exactly what we wanted!! A location for our families to stay in with us since they were mostly traveling from afar, and a place for our wedding reception. We got married in the park, only about an hour drive from the lodge. We enjoyed the space so much!- We BBQ'd outside, star gazed at night, ran around the orchard area with the kids and picked apples, and cooked meals in the large kitchen. This lodge was a big house for everyone to watch tv, play board games, do laundry if needed, play the piano in the living room, and enjoy each other. The swamp cooler kept our flowers cool enough until our wedding day. Our reception was everything we wanted! We were able to do everything ourselves, perfect for us since we are very controlling when it comes to decorating! We did all our own flowers, food, music, etc. The string lights outside on the patio were beautiful at night, giving our wedding that much more of a mood! Diane was so helpful and quick to respond to all of our questions. Scott was on site and available for the little details (extra trash bags, finding us a speaker for music, etc). Lillaskog was PERFECT!!!! We literally could not be any happier with our time at the lodge and how beautiful our wedding was. We stayed three nights with all 21 of us at the house, then had 35 total at our reception. Our families even want to go back for a reunion in the future!

    Yosemite’s best kept secret. WOW!!!

    We did an extensive search for a wedding venue. Thank God we found Lillaskog Lodge. This is a beautiful wedding venue and the scenery is just beautiful. We could have not asked for a better venue to host our wedding. We came all the way from New Jersey to host our wedding at this perfect location. Our guest and family were amazed by the beauty and nature of this place! Without any doubts this is a beautiful place! View is fantastic, the facility is very clean, and staff quite friendly and helpful. Our vendors (photographers, DJ, Caterers, and bar attenders) were amazed by the beauty of this place. “How come we did not know about this place?” Was the most common reaction from our vendors. Our memories of this place will last forever.

    Best wedding venue ever!

    We spent months looking for a wedding venue that fit our vision. I knew the first moment I found Lillaskog that this was the one. Diane was so helpful through the planning process and truly saved our wedding by finding a gorgeous tent for us just 2 days before our wedding when the weather decided to go crazy. Even though it poured on our wedding day (and snowed the day after!) The lodges beauty and magic was not lost. It actually made it even better. The views were incredible and the lodge itself is stocked with everything you could possibly need to accommodate a house full of people (we had 22 and 3 dogs!). If your vision includes the beautiful and unpredictable great outdoors and a homey, comfortable vibe - Lillaskog will be perfect for you too 🥰
