Planning a wedding, Mitzvah or Quinceanera? The Lodge is the perfect rustic setting for all types of social events! April to October, wedding ceremonies are typically held on the lawn followed by a tented cocktail hour, then a reception and dancing inside the Lodge. Events of 100 guests or more may find dancing more comfortable outside in the Tent. The extended stone patio behind the tent also features an outdoor fireplace where you can relax with your guests and roast marshmallows!* Make sure you take those must-have photos by the Little Seneca Creek which runs through the public parkland behind the Lodge.
Weddings and special events are wonderful at the Lodge November to March as well. Enjoy an indoor ceremony in front of a roaring fire, followed by a warm and intimate reception inside the Lodge. The exterior of the Lodge is beautifully decorated for the holiday season late November to early January, so having your event during that time is extra special.
