    Ive been to one at the hilton.  I was really nice & the food was great.  Bar left a little to be imagined, but maybe that was their package?  Bride & groom said they were fabulous to work with! (they also had a winter wedding & had a money limit to meet, so they had to have appetizers, choc. fountain to meet it etc.) but it was really nice.  No complaint.

    I haven't attended a wedding at the Lodge, but I have stayed there and it is lovely.  I think there was a knottie here who had her wedding there.  Sorry, I can't remember who though.

    One of my best friends had her wedding at the Lodge and everything about it was great. I would highly recommend it. And I loved the cheeseburgers they brought out latenight!

    My friend at work is having her reception at the Lodge and she's said great things. Esp about the late night hamburgers and also the deck/patio where they usually have cocktail receptions. I've heard that the landscape is beautiful there!

    I just went to wedding at the Lodge. The food was delicious, and it was a very pretty venue! We stayed over too, and the hotel was very nice.
