Covered Outdoor Weddings and Events

The lodge is located on a hillside at the northwest end of Big Lake, where the view provides a beautiful back drop, and the surrounding acreage, lush with native trees and plants, offers many wonderful photo opportunities. Guests are often curious when they first arrive because none of the venue is visible from the road or the driveway. The fact that no one else has any visual or physical access to the venue enhances the ambiance and creates a very magical site for your special day.

The facility includes an indoor area with a full kitchen, a reception area for buffet food service, a guest bathroom, and two suites: one for the bride and her bride's maids and the other for the groom and his groom's men, each with full private bathrooms. French doors create a 6 foot opening accessing the covered deck that accommodates the upper dining area. Walk down the wide stairway and your standing on a 10 X 12 landing under a beautiful wisteria arbor.  A couple of more steps down and you're on the cobblestone patio. This area provides an additional dining area for round tables with market umbrellas. An open log structure at the north end of the cobblestone area provides a bar/beverage area with power, water and refrigeration. A 16 foot log gazebo with an adjoining 20' X 30' seating area provides the ideal location for the ceremony.  Beyond the ceremony area the lodge offers many beautiful areas ideal for natural outdoor photographs.

It's our goal to provide a venue where a bride and groom, and their loved ones, can create the wedding ceremony that suits them, their lifestyle and their budget. The staff at Big Lake Lodge looks forward to helping you accomplish this.
