Shenandoah Lodge is a waterfront wedding venue located in Front Royal, Virginia. Nestled in Northern Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the lodge is positioned at the base of the famed Blue Ridge Mountains. The venue provides couples and their guests with access to 900-acres of verdant woodland greenery. Overlooking the property is the beautiful 117-acre Lake Frederick, offering majestic mountain views in the distance.

The property boasts four event spaces for couples to utilize on their special day. The lodge's Lakeside Lawn is an outdoor ceremony location that can comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests. This spacious area features breathtaking views of Lake Frederick and serves as an ideal ceremonial setting. The second outdoor space the team at The Shenandoah Lodge offers is the stylish and more private Garden Terrace. This fenced-in area is enhanced by ambient string lights and burlap decor. The lodge has two main indoor reception areas available for milestone events. The venue's stylish Event Center can facilitate up to 200 guests. This open-concept space features exposed wooden beams and sparkling chandeliers overhead, adding a sense of rustic elegance to the room's atmosphere. The Paddock is the property's second indoor offering and is better suited to more intimate celebrations. This uniquely designed dining suite features four walls of custom wine lockers and can seat up to 14 people. In addition to the property's ceremony and reception spaces, the lodge boasts an elegant get-ready suite for couples to utilize on the morning of their wedding. This area, called The Skyline Room, can accommodate up to 30 people and serves as a wonderful preparation and relaxation space for wedding parties.

    Flawless Experience

    From the moment we visited the Shenandoah Lodge we knew it would be the venue for us. It is BEAUTIFUL and in a great location to hotels - which is what we needed having mostly out of town guests. They handle food and beverage which made the planning so much less stressful for us. All of our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. The banquet staff was great and really worked hard to ensure everything related to the food/beverage was perfect. The event coordinators, Christina and Savannah are so friendly, professional, and phenomenal at what they do. They made sure everything was flawless and really have the entire process down to a science. I can’t thank them enough for playing such a huge role in making sure our day was everything we imagined. They helped me so much with planning and eased any concerns I had. They were also super quick to respond (seriously sometimes even late at night) which was always very appreciated! I can’t recommend the Shenandoah Lodge enough and am so glad we chose them for our wedding day.

    Shenandoah Lodge's reply:

    Thanks so much Amanda! It was such an honor planning yours and Travis's special day! It truly was a breathtaking Wedding! We look forward to working with you again and wish you both nothing but marital bliss!

    Dream Wedding!

    In August of 2020 my fiancé and I decided to look at Shenandoah Lodge as a possible wedding venue. We met with Amy & Christina. They gave us a tour and run down and right away we knew this was place we wanted to get married. That day we secured our date and started our incredible journey with Christina! Throughout the year Christina and I corresponded regularly threw many emails, phone calls and a few in person meetings. She could not have been knowledgeable and professional threw out it all! They are a one stop shop for all things venue, food, alcohol, and even set up the things for your wedding day! You do not need an event coordinator as that’s what Christina and Savannah are for and they are fabulous! On August 14, 2021 we finally said I DO! The day of our wedding went so smoothly and everything was just a dream! It could not have been more perfect. Savannah and Christina are so amazing at their job! Everything exceeded any expectations or dreams of the perfect wedding I ever had! I can not recommend them enough! If you are thinking of having your wedding here just do it! I promise you will not regret it!

    Shenandoah Lodge's reply:

    Thank you so much Jenna!!! We are beyond touched your day was everything you had imagined and more! We love what we do and our partnership with you was the icing on the cake! We wish you nothing but marital bliss and truly hope to see you and Sean soon for any future event needs. Cheers!
