The Lodge at Malibou Lake is an historic venue in Agoura Hills, Southern California. Built in 1936, The Lodge recalls a heyday of grand parties and good times. We are hidden in the rustic Santa Monica Mountains, shaded by sycamore and oak trees, and beside a storied private late - yet we are less than an hour's drive from Hollywood.
Whether you dream of an intimate gathering or a grand affair, The Lodge will host you in style. Your guests can enjoy both indoor and outdoor event spaces in a gorgeous, natural setting.
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.

Best Day Ever
So much can be said about this amazing venue and Chef Cordelia and her staff! We found this venue last March/April and at the time it was not as known as it has now become. Through the last year we have seen so much growth and even during the unfortunate devastation this community has faced during the Woolsey Fire this venue remained untouched. It is a true symbol of the surrounding community and you can feel it when you are there. We were honored to have our wedding still come to fruition, the staff and comfort felt and given at this venue truly made me want to get married here all over again. It was a magical day, filled with love, laughter and this is a truly special place we will always be thankful for.Sent on 02/13/2019

Beautiful Venue with a Great Staff
My husband and I were married at The Lodge at Malibou Lake in October 2018 and we had the best experience! The location is gorgeous with the lake and mountains in the backdrop -- lots of great photo ops. The inside of The Lodge looks like it's out of a wedding magazine with an awesome rustic bar and a nice dining room with huge windows, high ceilings and a fireplace. One of the things that really sold me on The Lodge is that you have access to all their furniture, which includes farm tables, X back chairs, leather sofas and other cool vintage items, so you don't have to hassle with rentals, which can really add up. This made The Lodge a great value and the planning process easier. The food by Chef Cordelia is delicious and the staff was a pleasure to work with. This venue is a real treasure!Sent on 02/20/2019

Perfect venue and perfect food!
We wanted a back yard wedding but had too many guests, and we were put off by nearby venues that seem like "wedding factories." We went with Malibou Lake (we booked before tasting the food) and I am SO glad we did.Sent on 10/23/2018
The whole team is so responsive and amazing. Their in-house management/catering company (Chef Cordelia) is INCREDIBLE -- so responsive and personal, had a thorough answer for all 1000000 of my questions, SUPER flexible and customize-able, and the food was insanely delicious. Seriously, a week has gone by and our parents are still getting phonecalls complimenting the food (especially the Miso Salmon).
My only disappointment is that you can't project music outdoors other than during the ceremony (it's not up to the venue-- it's the policy of the neighborhood association), but luckily we had a DJ who could play acoustic guitar during our cocktail hour.
The team at Malibou Lake goes above and beyond. Physically, it feels personal and secluded even though it's just sitting in Agoura. We got tons of compliments on the beauty of the setting, and a few friends even hinted that they might want to get married there in the future. The Chef Cordelia team has also gone above and beyond to make this venue beautiful on the inside -- it feels like a hip bar or private lodge. Just gorgeous.

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.
