This is one of those venues you find because you went to someone else's wedding here who went to someone else's wedding and loved it. The groundskeeper keeps the place beautiful! Stan does a great job with all the gardening and upkeep. Mary, the owner, is a sweet woman but she isn't quick to get back with you and she's hard to reach sometimes. It's all forgivable. The place is a fantastic deal! You get the whole run of the grounds and the house for the whole day! It's easy for caterers to move around because the kitchen is big and there are lots of doors in and out. I hope to come back to this place.

Pros: Beau Lodge is a BEAUTIFUL venue, and provide ample ammenities for the wedding party, such as separate changing rooms for the bridal party and groomsmen and there are a number of bathrooms and fun little hide-away spaces throughout the lodge. It's in a bed and breakfast type of setting, with lots of room and a warm feeling overall. There is a kitchen available for use from your catering staff as well. The grounds are kept very tidy, while still providing a rustic and organic setting. It's a place I'd want to come back to any day of the year.

Cons: The owner of the lodge, Mary Elmore, is near to impossible to get a hold of. She has an operating system, and messages left for her typically get returned to you 3-5 days later or not returned to you at all. Be prepared to stalk.
Mary also patrols the wedding site (although out of site for the ceremony and start of reception), and can be a little obtrusive, even reminding us to turn down the music (3 times) at 9:15 when we had reserved the reception until 10:00, and then refusing to let my mom use some old garbage bags for our clean up, even after she offered to pay for them. The venue cost $3,000 and she wouldn't even sell us a $5 bag of garbage bags. My husband eventually worked his charm and she gave him the coveted trash bags. She was overall polite, but hassled my parents a bit even while they were working hard into the night to leave the venue cleaner than we found it.
Mary gave the wrong information to my planner regarding exactly how many tables she had available. We were forced to scramble and rent more the DAY OF, or else my guests wouldn't have had seating.
Mary neglected to tell my catering staff that the stove was a burner short and the oven didn't work properly. Basically, Beau Lodge is a wonderful venue, perfect for photo ops and great for both seamless ceremonies and reception, IF you're prepared. I'd recommend it to anyone, and would absolutely recommend the Lodge.

The grounds were beautiful! It was perfect for us, and it was really nice to have a bride and grooms room in the building. They have a huge kitchen, and lots of fridge space. Beautifully set up for lots and lots of photos. Beautiful porches, nice pond, it really was our dream wedding. The only down side is there is not alot of room if it decides to rain. We had 100 people which was JUST big enough. We had tables on the inside and the out (for "reception", and we did rent a tent (incase of rain) to put on the lawn "for our "ceremony".

Beautiful location for a garden wedding! The owner is a little hard to get a hold of at times and I was unable to have a ceremony rehearsal until the morning before the wedding.
