still in awe of how amazing this venue was
I don't think I can adequately describe how amazing this venue is. Everything they did was perfect. From the beginning, they went above and beyond.
Even though my wedding was considered peak season, they gave me the off peak season pricing since I guess they weren't busy on my date.
Jenn Wenman, the day of coordinator, had an answer and solution to all my questions (and there were a lot of them).
The venue itself is beautiful, the food was to die for, and the staff were all super friendly. The waiters kept coming to me during cocktail hour and made sure I had a constant stream of appetizers! This was super appreciated as I was starving.
I was super happy they did all the set up and tear down. After a big event, the last thing I wanted to do was tear down all the decor, I was amazed when they said they would do it! They even brought all my gifts up to my room on a luggage cart so I didn't have to.

Willows Lodge was hands down the best place to have our wedding reception! Erin took incredible care of us throughout the entire planning process, went above and beyond for us, and was always available to talk even on her days off. The hotel staff were so attentive, friendly, and helpful and all of our guests have been raving about how beautiful the venue and hotel rooms were, how well the staff took care of them, how delicious the food and drinks were, and how smoothly the entire day went! The staff at Willows Lodge took care of everything and took a lot of the stress out of the planning. They handled all the set up and clean up and did a great job coordinating our other vendors. Needless to say, we had the most perfect wedding day and we couldn't have done it without the team at Willows Lodge and their amazing service!

Willows Lodge and Jenn Wenman made our wedding day a dream. We knew from the get-go that we wanted a brunch wedding, a beautiful location, amazing food/drinks, flexibility in choosing some of our own vendors (such as photographers and florists), and to basically worry as little as possible-- and Willows Lodge far exceeded all of our expectations, AND had lawn games and cute pigs to keep the kids entertained!
From the beginning, Jenn was the most responsive out of all the venues we contacted and was incredibly professional, organized and made some great suggestions to help us figure out how to fit our budget. She answered every single one of my (bulleted lists of) questions for over a year as we planned our wedding, down to the details of how long the aisle was for our florist, or adding on vegan dessert options for our guests. The food/drink tasting that Willows held was a fantastic afternoon where we really got to experience Willows' service and amazing food/drinks, and it made narrowing down the choices for our wedding day easy when we met with Jenn to discuss final details.
The day of the wedding, the staff was absolutely on top of everything and so professional and wonderful. A couple examples of awesome service: everyone on the staff had a copy of our timeline so servers knew when to gently usher our guests inside when everyone was having too much fun playing lawn games, and a server made sure to reserve a plate of appetizers for me and my husband because we were taking photos during cocktail hour. There was a mishap with our dessert delivery where the components were dropped off, but it wasn't fully set up by the delivery service, but the Willows staff promptly took care of it. Our guests raved about the food, drinks, and service, esp. the mimosa bar, Italian sodas, and beef tenderloin.
Our wedding package also included a 2-night stay at Willows, which was a wonderful experience. Without a doubt, we couldn't have asked for a better venue.
Willows Lodge is a stunning venue, with wonderful services and many options for all sorts of events. We've continually enjoyed working with the team over at Willows and recommend them to clients and other vendors often. If you're looking for a venue for your upcoming event, you will not be disappointed when choosing Willows Lodge! Make sure to get some spa treatments and a beautiful room while you're there!
Willows lodge provides an awesome back drop for photographers because whether rain or shine, there is always a place to shoot and the landscape inside and out is beautiful. One of our favorite places...
I love this place. Wonderful ambiance, extremely attentive staff with a can-do attitude.
