    “I was hired by a couple to officiate their ceremony and provide wedding coordinator services. The first time I did a walkthrough of the space with my clients, I was greeted by Linda. She is very friendly and pays close attention to detail. As we exchanged ideas she immediately started to take notes and ensured that the day of the event that everything was ready upon my arrival. Set up was a success with an hour to spare. The staff is friendly, courteous and efficient. Linda and Matt were present throughout the entire event and ensured that the evening flowed flawlessly. Food is delicious, restrooms are clean, great selection of flatware and glassware. Linda even helped to keep one of brides' father warm during our outdoor ceremony as it was a chilly 30 degrees. Once the event was over, the staff members were very helpful with breakdown of my rentals and even helped to load my vehicle. Would absolutely recommend the Forest Lodge.”

    “On August 22, 2015 my husband and I had our special day at Forest Lodge. This was the best decision that we ever made. From the day we decided to have the wedding there until the actual wedding day they were very accommodating and helpful. No matter how big or small something was that I asked Linda and Marci made it priority. The day of our wedding the staff was extremely attentive to all of our needs and those of our guests. They helped keep everything on time without making... us feel rushed. I never had to worry about anything. They even helped my Mother-In-Law put her corsage back together when it broke and I didn't find out about that until after our honeymoon. They even reached out to my florist to tell them and after we got back from our honeymoon they let me know the answer. I would recommend them to anyone for any occasion. I can't wait to have another special occasion at Forest Lodge.”

    “If you are looking for elegance, fabulous five star restaurant food, attentive and accommodating staff this is the venue you need to use! Ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all ran so smoothly that we could relax and simply enjoy the party. The Forest Lodge staff took care of everything, from first appointment to contract signing to food choices to recommendations for DJ. It was like having a wedding coordination without the added cost. Linda, Matt, Sharon and Chef Charlie were amazing and right there to address every need and request! The newly renovated "Sherwood Chalet" definitely earned the full five star rating! I will use them again if I ever have another reception or large party. Our daughter was so pleased and our guests said "This reception has set the new standard, it will be hard to beat". You don't get much better than that! Thanks Forest Lodge!”
