A magical weekend!
I am still absolutely glowing from my wedding weekend at the Rainbow Lodge this past weekend!!!Sent on 10/09/2019
First, there's so much I can say about how wonderful Yvonne and Rolf, the caretakers of the lodge are. They are incredibly professional, clear with communication, and knowledgeable about how to make your weekend the best it can be - and they were such a calming presence over my wedding weekend. My entire family sings their praises, and is actually in this moment trying to adopt them into ours because they were so wonderful!!
The lodge itself is wonderful, and bespoke with the most special details and radiates all the history of it's time in Soda Springs. My guests were so excited to stay there and enjoy all the amenities the lodge had to offer. As the lodge is 150 years old, there's history around every corner and unique touches all over the place! Guests enjoyed the sitting rooms, took a polar plunge in the river, took hikes all over Soda Springs and escaped to Truckee for dinner! The lawn for the ceremony was absolutely magical - it barely needed decoration and I cannot wait to see my pictures!
As a bride who didn't have a wedding coordinator - with Yvonne, Rolf, and the Lodge in my back pocket everything was flawless!
A few tips for those thinking about the lodge:
- Be communicative - Yvonne and Rolf are so responsive, and can easily answer questions you might have about the area, lodge details, catering, etc
- Let your guests know there are stairs (age, elevation, ability all might impact where you place folks)
- Let your guests know that the lodge is 150 years old - probably best to leave the gadgets at home and enjoy the lodge for the weekend!
- The lodge is fully stocked with activities and games for all ages - but we also supplemented with additional items for the kids area and game room, and I probably could have brought less!
- Make sure to have a head count for meals - we were at the lodge from Thurs-Sun, and no one wanted to leave so Yvonne and Rolf helped us navigate the best way to set up our food options (my sister is an amazing chef/coordinator!)
If I could give the lodge 10 stars I would - they made my wedding dreams come true and I cannot thank Yvonne and Rolf enough!!

Spectacular location, private and rustic lodge in the mountains
The Rainbow Lodge is rustic but amazingly beautiful, private and nicely renovated. It is perfect for a destination wedding weekend where the whole family can gather and relax in a private setting. Lake Tahoe is nearby and there is lots of hiking and breathtaking views. The lodge offers a perfect setting for the wedding ceremony and reception. Guests can stay on site in one of 30 guests rooms. The property managers are very helpful. All our guests had an amazing time!Sent on 09/20/2019
