    Beautiful Lodge & Perfect Wedding Venue

    We had both our wedding ceremony and our reception at Whitefish Lodge. The lodge was absolutely stunning and beautifully decorated for the holiday season. All of our guests complemented the lodge and the service the Whitefish Staff provided! Our guests children loved the pool and the arcade! The Event Manager, Crystal, was so knowledgeable and responded to every questions/request that I had. There are so many beautiful areas indoors and outdoors for photographs! All the Whitefish Staff helped provide a wonderful weekend for us and we cannot wait to go back and celebrate many wedding anniversaries here!

    Best day at Manhattan Beach

    We had our wedding at Manhattan Beach Lodge in June 2021. It was the best day ever! We worked with Crystal for over a year to plan our day. She was so helpful, knowledgeable and easy to work with, and she really took the stress out of wedding planning. All of the staff was so wonderful and kept the day moving smoothly. All of our guests raved about the day, the food and the location, saying it was the best wedding (and food) they've ever been to. I couldn't recommend this location more, it truly is the best place to get married!
