Having recently had a Bar Mitzvah party at the Forest Lodge we cannot say enough good things about it.
From the onset, Linda and the banquet staff could not have been nicer or more pleasant to work with. Their expertise and attention to detail was noteworthy. The quality and attentiveness of the staff on the evening of the party could not have been better or more accommodating.
The reviews the next day from both the Bar Mitzvah boy and all of the participants were five star. We will cherish the memories of that night forever.
We are so glad that we chose to have our party there and would recommend the Forest Lodge to anyone looking for a great party place!

Having our daughter's Bat Mitzvah at Forest Lodge was one of the best decisions we've ever made. The whole day was effortless and stress-free, and the staff was incredibly accommodating, even providing a gluten-free meal for one of the teens. It is almost a month since the event and our friends and family are still raving about the room, the food, and the overall atmosphere. Thank you for making our day so special.

Thank you and your staff so much for making my daughter's Bat Mitzvah such a wonderful and fun day. It was a pleasure to work with you both before and during the party. You really made the day relaxed and fun. I particularly appreciated being able to drop everything off the day before and having you organize and decorate. We also liked the way that you spread out the food so that the party was continuous and we didn't do all the eating and then have the dancing. We have been to many functions were we feel rushed out of halls exactly at 5 with many guests leaving by 4. Our party was quite different, at 5 we were still largely on the dance floor and you left the final clean-up until after everyone had left which just made the afternoon more fun.
The food was excellent. I particularly received tremendous compliments on the appetizers, both the quality and variety was really appreciated and we didn't even have the carving stations or chafing dishes. Being able to design our own salad was great. The kids (big and small) loved the frozen drinks, candy and ice cream bars. The party was so good that Molly said she was do her bat mitzvah again if she could have another party.
Between you and Randy, our DJ, the party was perfect.
I cannot find adequate words to express my thanks to you and everyone at Forest Lodge for making Nicole’s Bat Mitzvah celebration weekend truly a dream come true for all of us. There is no way that I could have out together these two perfect parties without your tireless help. You told me when we first met that you could do anything we wanted and you not only kept that promise, but you went above and beyond all our expectations. It was truly fun and a really good time was had by all our guests on both days and you know that was all I wanted!
A million thanks to you, Charlie and all of your friendly and helpful staff. We all sincerely appreciate all the hard you work all did.

"I can't even begin to describe how perfect everything went on my wedding day. Since the very beginning Linda and Forest Lodge worked with me and made suggestions with all of her expertise, I opted to take a slightly different route and have an outdoor ceremony in December. Linda helped to make anything I asked of her happen. She did this with efficiency and enthusiasm. The Forest Lodge crew was there every time I turned around during the reception to make sure my drink was full or to see if I needed anything else. People are STILL talking about how incredibly delicious the food was! I've been trying to figure out what the next event I could have at Forest Lodge is! I can't wait to see all the helpful workers and eat more of that incredible food!!! Forest Lodge makes the whole "wedding process" much easier and less stressful for everybody involved, I'm not sure what I would have done without them!"

I want to thank you so much for helping to make my 50th birthday party such a success. Everything exceeded all my expectations to make it an event of a lifetime for me. I had the time of my life and will recommend you highly to everyone!
We had our daughter Francesca’s Sweet 16 at the Forest Lodge in November of 2010. It was the perfect venue. The service was fantastic, the food was great and the room was perfect. We were very happy with the entire event. Francesca was thrilled with the out-come of her party and the memories that were made that evening will forever be in our hearts. Thank you Forest Lodge for a wonderful night.
