    The Most Amazing Wedding Venue

    MAGICAL. That is the best word to describe the entire weekend at RT Lodge. It was the perfect place to have a weekend celebration and they took care of every detail from start to finish.
    First, the planning process was enjoyable and the team took all of the stress off of us. They even helped navigate during COVID and helped coordinate with all vendors for us. We had to postpone twice, but they made it the easiest process it could be! We had so much fun at every planning meeting and they made it seem less!
    Once the big weekend came we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Everything was planned out to the minute and they thought of details we would have never dreamed of. The experience was surreal and absolutely perfect! It was wonderful to have the entire place to ourselves! The staff made us feel like royalty and anticipated our every want!
    One thing I have to mention is the food. It is truly the best food we have ever had. There is not a bad thing on the menu. Every guest raved about it and chef Trevor accommodated our ideal menu as well as dietary restrictions for a family member. Everything we have ever eaten at the lodge is amazing! Since our first planning meeting the lodge has become our special spot to go eat whenever there is a celebration! That is the only downside of this place, you WILL become addicted to the food and no other restaurant will taste as good!
    I cannot recommend enough to plan your wedding at RT Lodge. The staff becomes family and you will be well taken care of! I would go through the process over and over again (even with being a COVID bride) just to get to spend more time with their amazing team! I urge anyone planning a wedding to just go there and see for themselves, and no other venue will compare!

    Amazing Experience

    RT Lodge was a dream wedding venue and couldn't have been more perfect. The staff is extremely helpful and cuts out all of the stress of planning. Everything is onsite which made planning extremely easy as they also help to coordinate with vendors. The venue itself is beautiful and cozy. The food is insanely good and Chef Trevor makes any accommodations you need. I had a few guests with food allergies and they went out of their way to make sure everyone was taken care of. They also work with you for anything you need; you will not lift a finger on the day of! It was an overall great experience and we will definitely be back!

    Idyllic venue, wonderful people

    Where do I even begin? RT Lodge enabled us to have the most beautiful, intimate, and unforgettable wedding weekend. When we started wedding planning, we knew we wanted outstanding food, a place where we could be together with our guests for a weekend, and somewhere dog friendly. The lodge provides all of that and much more. We found the lodge on a whim and traveled to spend a weekend and discuss wedding planning. It was the first and only venue we visited. The lodge is amazingly beautiful and speaks for itself, but it's the team that makes every stay and celebration a memorable one. We can't express our appreciation for their sincerity and transparency as we navigated wedding planning during COVID. They made sure we could pull off a safe celebration while also preparing various options if we needed to postpone. Our wedding weekend was truly perfect. The weather was iffy but the backup plans were just as wonderful as our original options. We were all able to be fully present and enjoy the weekend without worrying about anything. Katie and her team seamlessly coordinated every detail, helped with literally all things (including bustling my dress), and made sure I was smiling the entire time. Guests raved about the food (quality, presentation, timing - everything - Trevor is amazing!), genuine hospitality, and relaxing mindset you adopt when spending time at the lodge. If anything went wrong during our weekend, we still don't know about it! We are forever grateful and we truly cannot wait for our next visit!
