It is so hard to put into words how wonderful and perfect our experience was planning and having our wedding at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa. The moment we met Marina, we felt so happy and excited to share this experience with her. She was so attentive to our needs and made planning the wedding so much fun. The day of the event went perfectly and because of the resort and our other vendors we were truly able to enjoy the day without any stress or worry.

We got the Winter package, which was such a great value and we definitely got more than what we paid for.

The staff was so gracious and attentive, from the front desk to the wait staff to the maid service, everyone had such great customer service.

We highly recommend this venue as a perfect spot to have a wedding. It has everything you could think of, from a rustic mountain wedding, winter wonderland, lakeside beauty, and even a small beach if you want a beach wedding. What we loved was it felt like a destination wedding, without the long travel.

We are already making plans to revisit the resort on our 1st Anniversary.

Thank you Marina and all the staff at Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa!!!!

Sincerely,

The new Mr. and Mrs. Packett

We just had our wedding there and it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Our wedding coordinator was Marina Aguilar and she was responsive, professional, kind, funny, and all-around awesome.

The venue itself is really gorgeous. We got married outside on the dock, then had the cocktail hour at the pool, and the reception inside in one of the ballrooms. Everything went so smoothly -- it was almost surreal. The food was delicous -- we got many comments on how tasty it was. We went with the Sea Bass and the Filet, and people commented on both.

The guests really enjoyed the location. How could you not love being right on the lake, with a nice pool, and beautiful rooms? the bar and restaurant inside the resort are also top-notch. It was like a mini vacation for our guests, with most of them being from LA.

The catering department is very close knit with the vendors they work with as DJs, florists, cake, etc., so that took a lot of the burden off of us. They really take care of all the details, which allowed us to relax and have fun.

We are so so so happy we picked this venue and would highly recommend it.

Lake Arrowhead has been a special place for my family for as long as I can remember so I was lucky that my husband enjoyed it as much as we do. This made choosing a wedding venue very easy. We’d had a long engagement and kind of just escaped up to Lake Arrowhead one weekend to get away from the hecticness of life. Once up there we met with Lisa from the catering department and she had a consultation with us regarding a potential wedding, walked us around the property, and truly made it seem as simply as 1, 2, 3. Needless to say, we were instantly in love with the grounds and couldn’t imagine any other setting for our wedding. After showing the venue to our families, the decision was unanimous and we booked our date. We booked about 13 months or so prior to the wedding and had such a fun time planning the wedding. Lisa was amazing to work with and was super quick to reply to phone calls or e-mails; she really made this whole experience so seamless. I can’t really say enough how amazing it was to have her throughout this process, she was ALWAYS friendly and helpful, she always seemed to go above and beyond the standard or norm to ensure we were happy and our day was going to plan. The day of our wedding she called my Bridal Suite to make sure we had food and beverages and that everything was going smoothly. When she left for the evening on our wedding night, it didn’t occur to me that we wouldn’t be e-mailing and calling all the time anymore and I have to say I was a little sad!! I highly recommend this venue, you get SO much for your money and having Lisa (or any of her fellow coordinators) made our day a breeze, we had nothing to worry about and our wedding day was BEYOND perfect!!! If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t change a thing!!

I just have to say that Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa offers an amazing wedding package for a great deal! I've talked to other brides and they can't believe that we paid so little for SO MUCH! Everyone at Lake Arrowhead Resort was so friendly and helpful in planning our wedding. Our wedding coordinators, Becky and Gina, were wonderful. They would both respond to my emails and phone calls within the same day if not within the hour. They made my planning so easy and carefree I had no doubts that my wedding day would be perfect. We also got an amazing deal on guest accommodations! Our guests were from all over and everyone stayed at the resort. They couldn't believe how nice everything was and how beautiful the views were for the price they were paying to stay there. I stayed in the Eagle suite which had everything and more for a long weekend stay and plenty of space for me and my bridesmaids to get ready. Not only did it have gorgeous views and a balcony overlooking the lake but it also included a separate master bedroom with a fireplace and an on-suite bathroom. The bathroom had double vanity sinks, a separate large shower, deep jacuzzi tub, and separate toilet room. The rest of the suite included a living room with fireplace and plenty of seating, a separate dining room with a huge rustic table for 6, a minibar with sink, fridge, ice machine, and plenty of cupboard space, and there was even a second 1/2 bathroom. The ceremony site and reception room were perfect with beautiful views - our photos were gorgeous! The food was fabulous and cooked to perfection. The chef even accommodated our vegan and vegetarian guests with his own culinary creation at no extra cost. The only regret I have is that we didn't stay longer, I can't wait until we go back for one of our anniversaries. I highly recommend Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa for anyone looking for a gorgeous venue at a very reasonable price! You won't be disappointed!

Unbelievable location!! The resort was fantastic and absolutely beautiful. Our wedding coordinator provided to us by the resort was Becky, she was amazing. She afforded us the opportunity to visit the resort on several occasions prior to the event and was extremely patient. She worked amazingly well with all of our vendors, was extremely flexible and was always there when you needed her. Our wedding went off without any problems and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Our ceremony was on the outdoor deck and our reception was in the grand ballroom. Th resort itself is beautiful and the employees from the doorman to the wedding coordinator were very professional, polite and always willing to assist you. Excellent choice.

The Lake Arrowhead Resort staff went above and beyond to make my wedding day (actually, my entire engagement experience) something special that represented my husband and myself. Shelly Barry and Beckey McNey, the catering manager and wedding coordinater, were outstanding. There was another coordinator helping plan the event through the beginning of our contract who was not as wonderful to work with but the resort fixed the problem before we felt the need to submit a complaint. Shelly and Beckey responded promptly to all questions asked by me, my fiance and my mother, who were all involved in planning our big day and they were very understanding with our concerns to stay within our budget. We did (a shock, I know)!

The rest of the staff at the resort were equally professional and helpful; the front desk diligently answered our many questions regarding room location, weather, etc. and we continue to hear praise from friends and family about the resort , its staff and the beautiful location.

Thanks to the staff at the Resort, our day was beautiful and everything we hoped it would be.

The Resort was a beautiful location even though it was pricey for us. The ceremony was outside overlooking the lake w/the clouds in the background & a slight breeze - couldn't have been more perfect. They let you decorate as you wish so always check w/the location first on what they allow. The reception room was set up the day before so that we could decorate everything, although we had to decorate the outside the morning of the wedding. So I recommend that you delegate friends to decorate as you wish. Make lots of lists for everyone helping so they all now exactly what their tasks are.

The food for our son's wedding was truly outstanding. It was gourmet quality. When we had our food tasting, they were very responsive to suggestions and changes. They accommodated our requests. In a way, we were able to customize our menu without added cost. The hors d'oeuvres were so good--we had mini beef Wellingtons and the crust was so light and flaky. The crab cake was very fresh and delicious, the mushroom in a pastry puff was flaky and well flavored, and the seafood was so fresh. The crab legs were sweet, the oysters were very fresh, the shrimp was big and sweet. I could go on and on about the hors d' oeuvres but I better go to the main course. The lobster was fresh and done perfectly, the filet mignon was deliciously flavored and the chicken was also great. The soup and the salad were light but loaded with flavor, and the desserts were outstanding. The guests just loved their gourmet coffee station. The guests all raved about the food. We got so much food for the money. It was really a great value. Since the wedding was on a Monday evening, we got good rates from all the vendors.

The only thing that could make the dinner better is if they had come out with the food quickly. Some tables were already done with their dinner while the other tables were just being served. That was the only flaw.

The soup and the salad were light but loaded with flavor, and the desserts were outstanding. The guests just loved their gourmet coffee station. The guests all raved about the food. We got so much food for the money. It was really a great value. Since the wedding was on a Monday evening, we got good rates from all the vendors.

The only thing that could make the dinner better is if they had come out with the food quickly. Some tables were already done with their dinner while the other tables were just being served. That was the only flaw. Read less

My dream has always been to have my wedding at the Lake Arrowhead Resort. I love the scenery, the feel and having the lake in the background of my pics was an absolute. Growing up in Lake Arrowhead, I wanted all my guests to experience the environment as well.
The staff was amazing and my coordinator Gina was fantastic. She always responded within a hour of my emailing her and always had answers to all my nutty questions. She was very understanding and accepting to all my guests and family.
The day of the wedding Gina and her crew set up my entire reception room and it looked amazing! They did such an amazing job with everything! The only problems we had were with the front desk. Some guests that stayed there said to my husband and I that people at the front desk were rude and not very accommodating.

The overall experience was wonderful. We would highly recommend staying in the Scenic View Corner Suite. It is well worth it. They were able to accommodate last minute requests. Coordinating the final small details with food was more difficult than expected. The one thing we found disappointing was that the cake was not served on the plate as nicely as it should have.

Overall, Great experience. Everything looked exactly as we had discussed. Sometime they were a little slow at getting back to us.

At the time of my wedding the resort was just being bought and therefore a lot of changes were taking place. At the time, it was not nearly as nice and upscale as it is today. However the event team did their best to satisfy our requests, work with our budget and make up for some of the difficulties with construction/changes. Beautiful setting, winter or summer.

I fell in love with this venue, it was just what I dreamed of. It is pricey but totally worth the elegant atmosphere, the only negative would be the individual price for EVERYTHING, would be nice if they could just package together, and the coordinator stinks all the way up to the week of your event, then it is all about you.Not responsive to questions or concerns until they are ready to focus on you.

I would suggest a weeding planner for this venue, to stressful to try to deal with them yourself.

I was mostly happy with our choice of having our wedding at the Lake Arrowhead Resort. However, some complaints: They had just been purchased by Marriott and a lot of the staff changed, policies changed, and there were issues with communication. Unfortunately our original wedding coordinator left the resort (whom we had done almost all of our planning with and really had a connection with) and just weeks before the wedding we had to meet new people to go over final details. It was fine, but we really wished our original girl was there. The biggest problem was booking rooms for our guests and wedding party. With Marriott taking over, a lot of people were hearing different things about booking their room; that the hotel was already full (months in advance -- very untrue), that they had to book a minimum of 2 nights, but then some had no problem booking a room with the discount from blocking rooms whatsoever. Then to top it off, my MOTHER ended up with the room next to ours -- last thing a newlywed couple wants!! This was after she had to wait 3 hours after check in time for her room at all, and it wasn't the suite she had reserved. They finally made it right and gave her the biggest suite in the resort and that was where all of us girls ended up getting ready.
My groom and I were slightly disappointed when we checked into the hotel. We spent the night before the rehearsal dinner there as well as the following two nights. We had to tell THEM that we were getting married there. We thought at some point they would send us up some champagne or strawberries or at least a note that said "Congratulations" but we never received anything.
We had the rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception, and many people staying at the resort and you would think we would get a little bit of special treatment!! Not so much.
However, the actual events were lovely. The food was spectacular and the catering/serving department did an awesome job. Overall, pleased.

I didn't feel like the Wedding Coordinator wasn't very concerned with my wedding details or plans. We didn't really go over things before we needed to make the day go as smoothly as it could. Make sure everything is in writing, down to what is provided to you, projector screens, etc...because you don't want to have any miscommunication the day before the wedding and then scramble to find a vendor.

The location is beautiful. Everyone kept talking about the location. The food was okay as well. Parking is $18 per person, and to have free parking requires a little bit of a walk.

They were flexible and let us use the venue the night before so we can decorate. That was a great blessing.
