If you are looking for the perfect spot to hold your Company Picnic and you have people driving from all over NJ, look no further! Forest Lodge was easy to get to and at most 1 hr away for our farthest attendees. Charlie, Charlie, and Sharon are so easy and pleasant to work with and they handled practically everything!
Aside from us making a few decisions, letting them know our preferences, and doing a few event-type things ourselves like hiring the band, etc. we really just had to show up and enjoy ourselves - a rarity for event planners! Everyone that came said it was one of the best company parties they had ever been to - it was 2 weeks ago and we are still getting Thank You emails! Their grove full of tall trees and cool(er) shade with lots of picnic tables was a very nice oasis for our guests. The food was excellent and plentiful, service was fast/friendly/polite, and there were never any long lines - You can tell this venue knows their business and runs it like a well-oiled machine. This is one of those instances where you look back on paying for a service and are happy to write the check because they far exceeded our expectations while making us look great and while making our lives easier. Whatever your circumstances and whatever the conditions are the day of your event I feel like they have solutions to handle it all with no drama and a pleasant attitude. Thank you Charlie, Charlie Jr., Sharon, and all of your staff that did their jobs with a smile during a blistering heat wave - You are all true professionals and awesome people.
Forest Lodge is at the top of my recommendation list for anyone looking to work with great people at a great place in a great location. :)
