The property boasts four event spaces for couples to utilize on their special day. The lodge’s Lakeside Lawn is an outdoor ceremony location with a guest capacity of 200. This outdoor area features a breathtaking backdrop of Lake Frederick, which serves as a picturesque setting for ceremonies. The second outdoor ceremony space at Shenandoah Lodge is the rustic and more private Garden Terrace. This fenced-in area, enhanced by warm string lights and burlap decor, sits in an ideal location for couples to witness the beautiful sunset on their wedding day.
The lodge has two indoor reception areas available for wedding events. The venue’s Event Center can accommodate up to 200 guests.

It was a JOY to work with them!
If you are looking for a chic, yet, intimate and rustic venue for your event, look no further! Christina, Savannah, and the food staff at the Lodge were always so helpful and anticipated our every need. I cannot rave about this place enough. Everyone helping for our event were so happy and felt like family on our wedding day. I can't forget to mention the great tasting food for such an amazing value. We can't wait to come back to have more events here!Sent on 05/30/2021

Fantastic! Amazing! Thoughtful!
Lovely, comfortable venue.Sent on 04/25/2019
Great service. So flexible. Even though the sky was threatening, they set up for the ceremony outside. Ten minutes before the ceremony was to start, the skies opened up. Courtney and her staff, set up the inside site and the ceremony started on time. Amazing.

Perfect in every way
We spent months, many months, as I’m sure you are now, searching for the perfect venue for our wedding. I had so many lists, questions, and was overwhelmed with options and feeling like we would never find the place, then I emailed Courtney at the Shenandoah lodge. My wedding planning life changed forever! The venue is stunning, the food is absolutely incredible, and Courtney took care of everything! When we first talked I was sold, then I met her and the staff at lake Frederick weddings. Honest, reliable, so flexible and truly above and beyond service. Our rehearsal dinner was flawless, and our wedding day was perfect. Courtney is so organized, on top of things and experienced, our wedding planning was easy and just enjoyable all around. She doubled as my wedding planner, day of coordinator, maid of honor, and most importantly was my eyes and ears for everything to ensure our wedding vision was not only met, but exceeded beyond imagination. Our guests commented non stop the day of and since on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and how helpful and attentive the staff was. If I could I would rate them 100 stars. Did I mention they were affordable and worked with our budget? Hands down the best vendor I’ve ever worked with.Sent on 10/26/2019
