Do you want to have a hassle-free wedding? Yes? Then Forest House Lodge (FHL) is the venue for you! FHL takes the stress out of everything. I look back on my wedding day and cannot find a single flaw in our day! The staff at FHL makes everything so easy for you! They are so accommodating and know what they are doing. They are a well-oiled machine and it shows. I could not have picked a more perfect venue to match my husband and I's personality. The 'after hours' room downstairs is so much fun and the ceremony site and reception mezzanine is amazingly beautiful. Top notch place! I would definitely recommend FHL for anyone that is looking for a picture perfect setting without any worries. Thank you for making our day so memorial!

Just got back from our honeymoon and figured I'd tell you all a little about one of my favorite places on the planet. We spent some time looking online for wedding venues around the Fresno/Sacramento area and after looking at a couple places near the coast, we took the long drive up to Foresthill, CA and walked into Forest House Lodge. I was immediately convinced this was the place we would be getting married. The lodge is absolutely beautiful. Everyone who works there, especially Julie and Brie became almost family through all the planning and the big weekend. These people are wedding professionals. They know exactly what they are doing an will go out of their way to make your wedding exactly what you want it to be. There are a couple different packages you can pick from, we chose to have the lodge Thurs-Saturday. It was an amazing time. We had a pretty impressive threat of rain the day of our wedding but everyone assured me it would be fine, and everything still went perfectly.

I would definitely suggest using their preferred vendors. They really are the best.

If you're event remotely considering getting married here, please go see it for yourself. You won't regret it. I can't wait to go back next year for the cocktail party.

When looking for a wedding venue we wanted some place unique where we would be assured lots of time with our family and friends. This was particularly important as many of our family and friends were traveling from far away. We also wanted a worry-free experience (or as close as you can get for a wedding) where our family and bridal party would not have to work, coordinate, or arrange anything the day of and could simply participate and enjoy the festivities. The Forest House Lodge exceeded our every expectation! Christine (wedding coordinator), Alley (bonus wedding coordinator), and Julie (house manager) who we worked with at various times during the planning process and day of, were exceptional and delivered a quality experience down to the last possible detail! They answered our every question and were happy to work with us on the particularities of what we wanted for our wedding. They were easy to communicate with as well as very responsive to emails and phone calls throughout the work week; (they are working all weekend on weddings after all!). The day of was handled with poise and grace like a well-orchestrated show. If their were any hiccups, we do not know what they were. The day after, we could not think of one thing that could have made our wedding more perfect! The venue itself is a cut above the rest, providing unique decor and touches at every turn. The downstairs game room is a fun addition; the large bar and hat collection lead to great goofy pictures; the beautiful courtyard provides an elegant location for pictures and a romantic/intimate outdoor setting; and the ceremony site overlooking the Sierra Nevada mountains provides a breathtaking view. Just a stunning and stellar venue you will be overjoyed that you found.

We were married 6/5/15 with 120 guests. (Highly recommend a Friday wedding since you get two nights stay) We planned the whole thing from Reno and Alley the wedding coordinator was so great at answering every little question I had within 24 hours - usually within a couple hours! There are several events that we went to before the wedding including a vendor fair, personal tours, food/cake tasting, and the epic cocktail party where we were able to stay at the lodge and mingle with couples that had their weddings there the year before. When we arrived, we just unloaded everything and the Forest House staff took care of the rest which let everyone mingle with guests, play games, and celebrate on Thursday night before and after the rehearsal dinner. On the day of the wedding guests took walks, went to the river, biked around town, etc. It was like a mini vacation. Alley and Julie made sure everything was running smoothly and that we were on time for everything. It was the little touches that really made a difference for us. They provided mimosas for us when we were getting ready, let me have a tour with everything set up when no one else was in the lodge, let my husband and I have 10 minutes alone after the ceremony, brought us appetizers so we would be hungry, left us two pieces of cake and champagne in our room on our wedding night. We had guests who actually came up to us or contacted us after the wedding to thank us for inviting them and let us know it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We had the BEST PARTY both Thursday and Friday nights. Food was AMAZING. Monica made our cake beyond our expectations, the bartenders remembered everyone and their drink choices.I cannot say enough amazing things about the Forest House. You will not be disappointed and you will have the most stress-free and fun wedding imaginable when you choose them!

Forest House Lodge is the place to get married! They are the total package and everything we wanted in our wedding they exceeded our expectations and made our day that much more special. The staff was outstanding and super professional. We ended up going with a Friday wedding with Thursday rehearsal up there. We had the whole lodge to ourselves for 48 hours and I don't think we would have done anything different. Our wedding will be talked about for years to come and our family and friends were blown away of how everything went and the over all feel of the Lodge. I would seriously recommend anyone who is planning their wedding to go there. Best food you will ever have, and if you like Prime Rib, do their Chef's Carving Station!! Oh and seriously order their Beer Battered Artichoke Hearts, so yummy!

You can make the place fit your personalities and make it feel like its your wedding and not a generic one. Alley is the best coordinator and Julie is the best manager anyone could ask for. Patrick and Monica have really out done themselves in providing a great place to say "I Do" and celebrate the night away with family and friends. I would however not recommend this place to my personal friends, due to the fact that we want to be the only ones in our group of friends to have gotten married there, keep it to ourselves in a way!! Happy planning to future Brides and Grooms. Thanks again Forest House Lodge

This place rocks. One stop shopping. We had an epic 120 person wedding and everyone raved about the venue. You Can't find anywhere else near Sacramento that lets you take over the entire venue and party all night long. The downstairs area is awesome, especially if your friends like to play games. The bar is fantastic and all the hats are so much fun. The guest rooms sleep 70 guests. They did rotate through several changes of staff prior to the big day and that had us worried but the event went off without a hitch. Our friends say we should get married there more often. Tip: there is a nice park 2 blocks directly in front of the lodge that is ideal for taking great photos. Tip: the bar manager will special order cases of your favorite beer/wine but they have tons already.

The staff at Forest House is beyond amazing. Alley, our coordinator, made sure we had every detail we wanted for our wedding. This was a destination wedding and things couldn't have been easier. The views from grand sierra pointe are amazing, the game room for the after party is phenomenal. The bar tender made sure we had specialty drinks and beers that we requested. He even brought down huge buckets of beer for the after party (and water, too). Our friends have been complimenting us on our wedding for weeks now, and really it wasn't us - it was all the Forest House staff. An example: in setting up our guest book, the glass in the frame broke and Alley replaced it no questions asked. Simply amazing. You will not be disappointed!

I just want to say that Forest House Lodge is AMAZING!!! I cried the morning after my wedding because I was sad to leave. All my guests said that it was either the best wedding they had ever been to or in the top 3. The employees are like family and cater to all your needs. The food and cake (which they do in house) was delicious. My decor was beautiful and I didn't have to worry about a thing! I have a few friends who are getting married next year and can't stop talking about how great this place is and if they don't get married there they're crazy! FHL is everything that I could have dreamed of and if I could do all over again I wouldn't change a thing, except maybe take more photos in my photo booth :) The ceremony site is breathtaking, the lodge is gorgeous, the bar is ridiculous and the employees are awesome!!! Thank you guys for making my day the greatest day ever!!!!
