Beautiful and Flexible
We had our wedding at Tailwater on 10/24/2020. The venue is gorgeous and we loved that the place had lodging in the same building so noone had to drive afterwards. Even though its technically a Hilton Hotel, it is not a cookie cutter reception hall. The food was delicious and everyone had a great time. We especially loved the fire pit that we could hangout at the night before and the night of for as long as we wanted. With Covid putting a slight damper on things, the venue did the best they could to keep everyone safe and roll with the ever growing list of changing rules. They were great when we had to change from a larger wedding to a very small wedding- and they provided servers to give out dessert and appetizers and hand sanitizer at the entrance. We didnt need to spend hundreds or thousands in flowers and decor because the place is beautiful by itself and the river outside provides great photo opportunities.Sent on 11/01/2020

We landed at Tailwater by a stroke of luck, or even fate. Tailwater was my dream venue, even after thorough wedding venue research. When my fiancé (now husband) and I decided to move up our wedding date drastically, I never thought my dream of a Tailwater wedding would become a reality. However, due to COVID-19, Tailwater had our date, 10/3/2020 open.Sent on 10/11/2020
From the initial inquiry to the heartfelt farewell after the wedding, Michele was wonderful to work with. Her attention to detail and experience are priceless. She took our ideas, with very little direction, and made them come to life. Anne was also incredible. She did not miss a beat. She has an incredible eye for detail, is incredibly personable, and we had complete confidence in her.
The venue is just perfect. The porch is an incredible spot for the ceremony and everything flowed perfectly into the reception space. The food was INCREDIBLE. Our guests raved and raved about it (I wanted to take home a 10 gallon bucket of the garlic aioli). Every banquet team member was kind and personable. Our guests enjoyed hanging out by the fire after the reception. Everything was perfect, from start to finish. We have gotten many compliments that it was the most beautiful wedding.
Additionally, Tailwater handled COVID-19 restrictions with class and grace - we felt safe and were happy with the enforcement of policies.
Only minor complaint was that front desk staff seemed overwhelmed and there were a few mix-ups with our accommodations. It was salmon weekend, one of their busiest weekends of the year. However, we would have anticipated a more organized and hospitable approach to the management of our room block.
Overall, my mom, husband, and I could not recommend Tailwater Lodge more.

Couldn’t have asked for a more amazing venue!
I’m pretty sure I would never be able to express just how amazing the staff at Tailwater was when it came to every aspect of our wedding. Michele was amazing along the way, answering every one of my questions thoroughly. Every time I thought there was something to worry about she quickly reassured me that they would have things taken care of. Once it came time for the rehearsal and wedding and we met Anne, she also became an important part of making everything run perfectly for us. There were so many little aspects that they were on top of, so many things that we didn’t even think about, and they made everything happen seamlessly. There wasn’t a single person that we interacted with that didn’t go over the top to make sure we were taken care of. They took care of so much for us that the amount of effort that we had to put in was minimal, which was truly appreciated on our wedding day. I feel like we truly had the perfect wedding day thanks to Tailwater!Sent on 11/28/2019
