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!!!!

We were recently married here on 8/2/2014. I honestly cannot say enough about how amazing the Forest House Lodge was! From the second we walked in the door until the next day after we left, every person was there to help and with a genuine smile. There was not a worry the entire day as everything was already handled and I didn't have to think twice about any detail. This is quite important for me personally as I'm type A and sometimes too anal for my own good. I worry about EVERYTHING! But with Alley as my coordinator I never once worried about a single thing.

My Mom was a little worried about the price and the distance but once she saw the lodge she was sure this was the place....she even told me that she wished she could get married there!

Every single guest was blown away about how seamless everything went and how amazing the food was! And the view! You could never say enough about the view! It's so breathtaking!

The staff again, I couldn't say enough things! One of my lovely guests caused a ruckus in the bar and the way the staff handled it was amazing and I'm so thankful for that. We recently got out pictures back, and WOW. The day was incredible and it really shows in the pictures. I feel like we had a fairy tale start with a wedding so amazing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone at the lodge for helping to provide that!

This wedding venue was excellent! Very unique in that our son and his new wife could have their guests stay the night. In addition to enjoying the wedding and reception they all had breakfast together the next morning. As many of their friends were from out of state it was a wonderful way to help celebrate such a special day. The wedding coordinators and entire staff were fantastic! The food was delicious and the cake by Monica was so cute, a traditional cake on the front but it had a small VW van poking out the back in recognition of the groom rebuilding a VW van during college time. From the time that they picked this site it has been fun to work with Forest House Lodge. From the food tasting in the early spring, several meetings and just bouncing ideas off them via the computer they made sure that their wedding day was perfect. The photographs are amazing with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. The Forest House Lodge is a perfect location for any style of wedding with a staff that will make sure the brides (and grooms) dreams come to life. So happy that this was the venue my son and new daughter in law chose. There are no negatives that I can say about this location.

Our wedding on 5/25/2014 was better than I could have possibly imagined. The staff is amazing. They provided a relaxing, stress-free wedding day!! If there were any hiccups, I did not hear about them. My guests who needed help or faced quandaries tell me that the staff was so helpful and accommodating. My family is in love with Courtney, our wedding coordinator (my mom and grandma say Hi!).

People were blown-away by the food. Our guests started with pre-ceremony appetizers, then post-ceremony appetizers, then an endless dinner, delicious cake, and finally late-night appetizers (mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, and fries...just what you need at midnight). I highly recommend the mashed potato bar and prime rib-cutting station.

Monica, their cake ARTIST, is phenomenal. Not only was the cake mouth-watering, she has impressive piping skills. Our cake looked EXACTLY like the pictures I sent to her. And what is even sweeter is that the top tier of our cake was given to us to enjoy for our 1-year anniversary.

The facilities are amazing. The ladies had a beautiful morning in the Bridal Salon, a spacious room with numerous mirrors, a mini fridge stocked with champagne and orange juice, and lots of comfy couches. The ceremony site is breathtaking! Many guests have said that Grand Sierra Pointe is the most beautiful wedding site they've seen. We had snow-capped mountains in the vista in May! The reception at FHL was so much fun. We had the place all to ourselves. People were able to kick off their shoes and run around like it was their own home. Guests have said that the weddings they've gone to after ours are now just so boring.

When I sit around and think about our special day, I just smile. It was magical and beautiful. Definitely worth it!

Forest House Lodge is the most beautiful venue and I'm so happy that I chose to have my wedding there. From the moment I saw this place during my tour, I knew that I would never forget it.

I wanted a wedding with a rustic—but luxurious—aesthetic that would fit with our personal tastes, our love of nature, and our desire for something that would feel warm and inviting for all of our guests. I wanted it to feel like a true escape. The magical feel of the grounds of the Lodge stuck with me from the first moment of the tour, to the last moment of our wedding.

Our initial consultation was above my expectations for any venue consultation. Unlike other venues we toured, they are a truly full-service venue. They took such pride in their grounds, and so much pleasure in ensuring that our event was stress-free. When they say that they specialize in complete event pre-production, they mean it. From start to finish they ensured that we had a truly custom experience.

The ceremony site was like a fairytale. The view was perfect and my photos turned out absolutely gorgeous. It completely surpassed all of my hopes for a picturesque woodland ceremony with beautiful panoramic views.

The party itself was incredible. The feel was so cozy and fun all at once. The staff at the Forest House Lodge accommodated every single need that I had. Every wish I had along they way, they were able to grant. The décor was just what we imagined, and every little touch complimented the space so perfectly.

The food was absolutely delicious. The food was well prepared with fresh, quality ingredients. I savored every bite in between dancing the night away. I can't tell you how many guests I had come up to me and tell me that it was the best meal they ever had at a wedding.

Our cake was beautiful. It was so nice having the cake made in-house . Monica created the cake of my dreams. The cake itself was delicious; I wanted to go back for another slice, but my guests beat me to it!
