Imagine saying your vows in front of a 20-foot tall natural stone fireplace and walk-in hearth with candle light flickering around the Grand Hall of an exquisite historic estate.
The main lodge was built in 1924 and features hardwood floors and French doors that open onto a lodgepole pine porch. A short flight of stairs delivers guests down to the Grand Lawn where you can enjoy your meal outdoors under the towering pines.
Savor cocktails while watching the sunset over the lake and head back inside to dance the night away under the twinkling market lights and antique lanterns.
Wed in rustic elegance and charm at Valhalla, centerpiece of the Tallac Historical Site on the South Shore of beautiful Lake Tahoe.

We couldn't be happier with the Valhalla venue and Carolyn the caretaker. She was so great to work with and the event gave us a lot of options. When the weather started to turn on us, we easily moved the table to the covered deck. Our guest were sheltered from the wind but could still enjoy the view.

We had our wedding at Valhalla in October 2016. There is a reason this place books up far in advance- it is beautiful and affordable. As a Federal Historic site, they do not force you to use a specific caterer and you can supply all of your own beverages. They do have an approved vendor list, but it features excellent options in all price ranges so it's not restrictive. They just want to work with people who have taken the time to understand their rules of use and clean-up. The location is stunning- right on Lake Tahoe, surrounded by sequoia trees. The venue itself is a unique setup- there is an upper level with an open view down to the main floor. Utilizing the full capacity allows for 120 guests. We had 75 guests, and it felt perfect. Plenty of room to mingle during cocktail hour and to dance afterwards. One thing to note, as this is a historic site, you will need to rent many of the supplies for your wedding. They have round tables and chivari chairs available, but china, silverware, glassware and linens all need to be rented. Valhalla has a huge fireplace, and they do allow you to use it: you provide the firewood and their on-site docent maintains the fire. We worked with Carolyn, the overseer who handles weddings. She always responded promptly to any emails we had with questions, and overall was great to work with. If you have the right size wedding, and love natural beauty, you will be very happy with Valhalla. We were.

We had our wedding on a Friday in June (Fridays are less expensive than a Saturday). This place is absolutely stunning! Carolyn is so helpful and easy to work with. This place does book up quickly, so once you are ready call or e-mail ASAP. :) The fire place is breathtaking, pictures will never do it justice you have to see it in person. The grounds outside are well kept and the property is on the lake. There are SO many places to take pictures. We liked that we could bring our own alcohol and have an open bar. I would HIGHLY recommend Valhalla.
