    The perfect venue!

    I cannot say enough about the professionalism and attention to detail the staff at Forest Lodge provided. We worked with Sean throughout the planning process, he answered all of my (many) questions with patience, understanding, and attention. He never made us feel rushed or pressured and I knew he had everything under control. Our wedding day was more perfect than I ever could have imagined, all thanks to the Forest Lodge staff! We went with the buffet option and the food was incredible. I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking to get married!

    Married at Sherwood Chalet

    I give my absolute highest recommendation to Forest Lodge. My husband and I got married at Sherwood Chalet in April 2022 and it was an amazingly, wonderful experience from start to finish. Anthony and Sean helped us every step of the way and were available to any questions or concerns that we had. The ceremony and reception was spectacular and everyone working was so pleasant and attentive. Anthony was the maitre d the day of the wedding and made sure we were able to enjoy the cocktail hour and the reception. Charlotte was the bridal attendant and did a fantastic job with helping with my dress and making sure I had everything I needed. The food was fantastic and they even packed up food for us to enjoy after the wedding. We wish we remembered every single staff members names so we could personally thank them because everyone was truly so wonderful. If you are looking for venues I would highly recommend checking out Forest Lodge. Thank you so much to everyone at Forest Lodge for making our day so special!

    Helped make wedding planning a breeze.

    We absolutely loved working with The Sherwood Chalet team at Forest Lodge. Anthony and Linda made everything seamless leading up to the wedding and day of. They transformed the outdoor reception area into a magical place with hanging lights, drapery, etc. They went above and beyond to make sure each and every guest was taken care of. They even took the extra step when their waitstaff handed us roses as we walked into the reception congratulation us. It was so sweet! Our wedding day will be unforgettable thanks to the help of The Sherwood Chalet at Forest Lodge. 10/10!!!!

    Forest Lodge's reply:

    Warm Regards,
    Linda & Anthony
