Breathtaking views of the lake, nearby mountains, and surrounding wilderness create a deeply romantic backdrop for your celebration. When you book The Lodge you will have exclusive use of the property; an opportunity to create your own truly bespoke wedding.

Couldn't have made a better decision
We had our wedding at the Lodge this past February 2020 and we couldn’t have asked for a better venue for our wedding. It was everything that we wanted it to be! Historic but modern with scenic views (pictures don’t do the venue or the lake/mountains justice), excellent staff and service, and wonderful food. It even rained on our wedding day. We originally planned for the ceremony to be on the great lawn facing the lake, but moved to rain-day plan inside the ballroom about 4 hours before the ceremony. Honestly, we are so happy that it rained - the ceremony was gorgeous inside and had a very intimate feel. We had a string trio and the ballroom offered great acoustics. The team there flipped the room for the reception (a lot of work!), but they did it so quickly and every detail of setting the dinner tables was perfect.Sent on 03/29/2020
And the food… the food was so good! Food was one area that we wanted to make sure was big part of our day. We are total foodies. We definitely ate on our wedding day! Smoked mashed potatoes..truffle mac n cheese…smoked game hens…the wedge salad was one of the best. We had received so many compliments from our guests. The service was wonderful, too. We just wish we could go back as if it were a local restaurant!
A big thank you to Cordelia and her staff for such a wonderful day - we couldn’t have been happier how everything turned out!

Best venue in socal
I am definitely bias but The Lodge is the BEST venue in SoCal. My husband and I live in Northern Cal but knew early into our engagement that we wanted to married in SoCal. There were a couple "musts" for us when determining a venue. For me, I really wanted a venue that offered amazing food. I know that isn't every brides priority but it was definitely mine! We also wanted a venue that was timeless while style unique and stylish. We had booked so many tours and were blown away when we toured The Lodge.
Our tour was given by Jacey who is so fun to work with. She was on that day and moving forward so patient and informative. She set an amazing first impression for the venue as their coordinator.
After choosing The Lodge as our venue we later became familiar with Chef Cordelia and Valerie (who handles the contracts). Such an amazing team! What I loved about The Lodge is they host "Supper Clubs" which is a monthly dinner party where you get a good idea of the food and cocktail service they offer and it's even a good opportunity to meet vendors. I wished we lived locally, we would've gone more than once!
Chef Cordelia worked with me on making our Italian themed dinner and we even served brick oven pizza which was a major hit! Honestly I've had brides tell me that I wasn't even going to eat at my wedding..and that was not the case. It was some of the best food i've ever had!
I could honestly go on and on about this venue and the team that works there but if there's one thing I can say, it's that it is evident that they all really care about the business and the weddings that go on there. Everything felt so thoughtful, personalized, and detailed.
Couldn't recommend this venue more!Sent on 12/02/2019
As a wedding planner and florist we cannot recommend The Lodge enough! This venue and team truly goes above and beyond from the planning stages, communication, attention to detail prior to the wedding. All the way to end of the night and cleaning up. The positivity and engagement from everyone involved was appreciated beyond words. Chef Cordelia and her team made the most delicious dinner and appetizers and had all of the vendors in love as well as the guests. I highly recommend booking your next event at The Lodge!
We absolutely LOVE making cakes and dessert bars for weddings and events at The Lodge at Malibou Lake. We just did 3 events there this past week and I fall more in love with this venue every time I'm here! The venue is close to the beach, however it gives a feeling of being in a beautiful lodge in the mountains on a lake. The staff there are all so wonderful and easy to work with. I was lucky enough to try the food provided by their onsite caterer Chef Cordelia and it tasted incredible! I highly reccomend The Lodge at Malibou Lake.
