We could not be happier that we chose The Lodge for our ceremony and reception! Meghan was amazing to work with from day one. If there was something we didn't think of, she thought of it. Nothing was overlooked. The venue was gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the service was top notch! We even had our own server (Emily, who was amazing!) assigned to my husband and me to make sure we never went without food or drink while we were busy running around with photos and the other things that keep pulling a bride and groom away. We can't say enough good things about The Lodge. It was obvious that making our special day perfect was as important to them as it was to us. - Renée & Mark 9/17/17Sent on 10/24/2017

So glad we chose the Lodge!
Having our wedding at the Lodge was the one of the greatest decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process. My now-husband and I met working at Welch Allyn, and I grew up with a camp in Skaneateles that we moved out to every summer - so I knew I really wanted to get married in Skaneateles. After looking at a few venues there, the Lodge immediately stood out to us as the best place to do it. The ceremony was at St. Mary's church in town and the reception was at the Lodge.Sent on 06/14/2020
We met with Joelle our first time there, and from the very beginning she was incredibly down to earth, honest, knowledgable and flexible. I can't say it enough -- Joelle made our entire wedding planning process and day seamless. We had several meetings with her in the months leading up to the wedding, and I looked forward to going each time just to see and chat with Joelle. Whatever unease I was feeling in the planning process, Joelle talked it through with us and made us feel confident. She let me discuss my ideas with her, and either made them happen or made suggestions on how to do things better -- which I took because she is truly an expert.
On our wedding day, my husband and I couldn't wait to get to the Lodge after our ceremony. We got off our limo excitedly saying "where's Joelle!!" because we were really looking forward to seeing her after all of our planning and conversations. I had a specific vision for how the Lodge would look on our wedding day, and Joelle had arranged everything even better than I had imagined. It was absolutely beautiful. Because our wedding was in December but it was a rainy day instead of snow, my dress got dirty on the bottom. It was a very plain dress so it was easy to see. Joelle pulled me into the side room and scrubbed my dress until it was absolutely clean -- something I'm sure isn't in her job description. It was just another way Joelle went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Our guests couldn't comment enough on the signature cocktails, the hors d'oeuvres and the dinner. Everything was outstanding. The staff was so accommodating, and I don't think myself, my husband or any of our parents ever went looking for anything we needed -- they always brought us drinks and food, making sure we could focus on each other and our guests. I've never felt so special. We both brought our parents to the "tasting" the Lodge does - where they throw a "mock" wedding so you can see how everything works and taste the food. They had fireworks at the end, which was an option, and my Dad worked with Joelle to have that as a surprise at our wedding. Joelle kept the secret - and we were so surprised when they started. It was all so special.
When I had to say goodbye to Joelle later in the night, I was sad -- which may sound dramatic, but it's true. Planning our wedding with Joelle's help and expertise was an absolute joy. I would recommend her and the entire staff at the Lodge if you'd like to have the most amazing and seamless planning experience and wedding. Thank you Joelle and the Lodge staff for everything!
The Lodge is such a professional place, they deliver flawlessly everytime! Big beautiful place with lots of possibilities.
You can count on Meghan and the staff at The Lodge to make your experience one that you will remember forever. They have great attention to detail. If you want an event to remember The Lodge is your event location.
Meghan at the Lodge is a true professional. The brides all seem to really enjoy the time and care she takes to make each event perfect. The staff at the Lodge is always helpful and friendly. I always look forward to bringing a wedding cake to the lodge because I know the bride is in for a great experience that I can be a part of.
