5 The Lodge at Malibou Lake Reviews

Absolutely beautiful venue & amazing staff
We spent way too much time and energy looking for venues and it became so exhausting. But we're so glad we found this gem, as it made us realize just how thorough of a search we did and how many of ... Read more the things on our wish list this place had. From the very first communication with Jacey, we got a quick response. We scheduled a tour and she was warm, friendly and answered all our questions. We then later scheduled two supper club tastings and really loved the food and atmosphere. FYI they charge for tastings but you can have up to 2 tastings credited toward your final invoice. We liked that the venue already included beautiful tables, chairs, various furniture, two types of arches, table settings, service wear, and some decor items such as lanterns and an easel. The wood farm style tables are gorgeous and don't need linens so you can save on that cost. There is a beautiful lake across the street for photo ops. You also have the option to bring in your own alcohol (they supply bartenders and basic mixers) which is a great way to save money. We also loved how beautifully maintained the grounds are. The ballroom is beautiful, with elegant high ceilings, lots of windows, and gorgeous chandeliers. The location is fantastic. Just an hour or so outside of LA and easy to get to off the freeway, but you feel like you're not even in the city because it's kind of tucked away in the mountains. And lots of parking, which was important for us. All points of contacts, from Jacey to Valerie to Cordelia, are super responsive, organized, and always answered all of our questions (we had tons!). There is a ton of good information on their website and you can see all of their decor, furnishings, spaces, and even sample table configurations depending on your guest count. Our final walk through meeting was extremely thorough and we even got a floor plan of how all the tables and furniture would be laid out on our wedding day. We decided on family style dining and they offered a wide range of menu options, which includes 4 passed appetizers, and mix and match between 5 dining items. For apps, we selected the bacon wrapped apricots (crowd favorite), mini crab cakes, chilled grilled shrimp w/gazpacho shot, and duck bao buns. The dining items were a watermelon and mixed greens salad, cedar plank salmon w/rosemary mustard glaze, tri tip w/charred tomato salsa, green beans w/almond slivers and street style corn on the cob. Everything was delicious and we received endless compliments. The staff was simply amazing. During cocktail hour while we were taking our photos, the staff came by and offered us drinks and appetizers. And upon being seated at the sweetheart table, we saw they had set aside a plate of more appetizers for us as well (we missed some being passed while we went across the street to the lake for photos). The staff was so attentive and constantly checked on us thoughout the evening to see if we needed anything and offered drinks. The transition between ceremony to reception was seamless, and clean up at the end of the night went like a well oiled machine. The Lodge and all of the staff truly made our day memorable and we are so glad we chose them for our wedding day.

Best Day Ever
So much can be said about this amazing venue and Chef Cordelia and her staff! We found this venue last March/April and at the time it was not as known as it has now become. Through the last year we ... Read more have seen so much growth and even during the unfortunate devastation this community has faced during the Woolsey Fire this venue remained untouched. It is a true symbol of the surrounding community and you can feel it when you are there. We were honored to have our wedding still come to fruition, the staff and comfort felt and given at this venue truly made me want to get married here all over again. It was a magical day, filled with love, laughter and this is a truly special place we will always be thankful for.

Beautiful Venue with a Great Staff
My husband and I were married at The Lodge at Malibou Lake in October 2018 and we had the best experience! The location is gorgeous with the lake and mountains in the backdrop -- lots of great photo ... Read more ops. The inside of The Lodge looks like it's out of a wedding magazine with an awesome rustic bar and a nice dining room with huge windows, high ceilings and a fireplace. One of the things that really sold me on The Lodge is that you have access to all their furniture, which includes farm tables, X back chairs, leather sofas and other cool vintage items, so you don't have to hassle with rentals, which can really add up. This made The Lodge a great value and the planning process easier. The food by Chef Cordelia is delicious and the staff was a pleasure to work with. This venue is a real treasure!
