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.

If I could give the Lodge 10 stars I would – the venue was absolutely phenomenal! From the beautiful lakeside lawn where we had our ceremony, to the garden terrace where we had cocktail hour & s’mores to the elegant & rustic reception area, our day felt like a fairy tale. The food was delicious – we did 3 food stations for dinner: Farm Market, The Southern & Whole Boucherie and people raved about it the entire evening. Courtney Baker – Catering & Events Manager at the Lodge was instrumental in making our wedding day a complete success. From the first time we toured the venue to the day of the wedding, Courtney went above and beyond to make our dreams a reality. She was fun and enthusiastic to work with, offered great advice throughout the planning process and was extremely organized and detail-oriented. The Lodge and all its staff are amazing – I can't recommend this venue enough!Sent on 09/10/2019

Perfect and Amazing!
We just had our wedding at the Shenandoah Lodge and Athletic Club. It was absolutely AMAZING!!!! All the guests said so and they were fascinated by the beauty of the venue. The lake side is gorgeous. The garden side is also beautiful for photos while the reception area is elegant and rustic. As for the food, it is delicious and excellent. The key factor to the success of our wedding is the events manager Courtney Baker. She answered a lot of emails with patience, enthusiasm and good knowledge. She is very organized and nice. I worked with her for around 8 months and we met multiple times. She helped me so much in the planning process by giving the right advice and correct information about the venue. She is also quick at responding. On the wedding day, she coordinated the ceremony and reception successfully, helped me to stay calm and the wedding turned out fun, organized and a real success. She is someone you can count on 100%!!! Although I am very picky, I am completely satisfied about everything. I can’t thank Courtney enough! Everything was 5 stars !!! Totally recommend the venue❤️. You will be very happy there ☺️Sent on 08/15/2019
