We had an absolutely amazing wedding weekend at Lansdowne Resort. From the moment we pulled up to the moment we left, everything was perfect. I would like to recognize Leslie and Nicole for their outstanding service during the planning process - they were responsive and extremely helpful! It was also wonderful to have Leslie by our side at every event throughout the weekend. The bellmen, front desk agents, event staff (MILLIE), etc all over-delivered and allowed us to relax and enjoy the weekend. Millie was exceptional all weekend and made sure my husband and I were taken care of and happy. I would highly recommend Lansdowne to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing, destination wedding! Thank you to the entire staff for making our wedding weekend a memorable one! Our family and friends all raved about the resort as well!

We selected Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg as the primary hotel for our wedding guests. Our ceremony and reception venues were nearby, and Lansdowne provided and good central location for our guests. We worked with Miranda to plan our wedding room block, and she was very helpful in terms of advising how many rooms we should reserve. Note that in the contract with Lansdowne, you are committing to a minimum number of rooms based on the size of your room block. Miranda was helpful in making sure we did not over-commit. Lansdowne provided weekly e-mails with updates on reservations against the room block which helped us ensure that our wedding party and out of town guests got rooms before the hotel filled up. We put together gift bags for our guests, and Lansdowne handled them very professionally (this is important given there were at least three other wedding groups at Lansdowne that weekend). The guest rooms were very nice, and we also used the Presidential Suite for bridal party preparations the morning of the wedding. The room was perfect, and despite the size of the bridal party (seven bridesmaids, two juniors, and three flower girls), everyone was comfortable. After the reception, we kept the party going at the hotel bar, which gave us a nice opportunity to continue mingling with our guests.

The Lansdowne Resort is beautiful and amazing on its own, but my coordinator Leslie Eyster was really the one who made my dream a reality. I had to plan my wedding from Texas, so we communicated via e-mail and phone and she was incredibly helpful and super detail oriented which is incredibly important to me. Even though we had to hold the ceremony indoors due to rain, the entire day and night were beautiful and flawless. I would have gone crazy with stress if it wasn't for Leslie's guidance and support and she took care of every last detial so that I was able to relax and finally enjoy all of the time and planning that went into my wedding. Everybody had an amazing time, and the dance floor was packed the entire night. The guests raved about the food, service, resort and especially how lovely and fun the event was. She even packed up the zillion items I brought for the ceremony and reception and had it all in my room organized and ready to go. She even helped coordinate my dress change for the reception and my ceremony line-up which was a great help to me. I could easily list a hundred different things she was able to help me with and I would highly recommend requesting her to be your event coordinator. She was amazing for my wedding (which was mostly planned though email and over the phone) so I'm sure she would be equally flawless for those living nearby. I am still on cloud nine after having the best day of my life at the Lansdowne Resort. I can't wait to come back for our anniversary stay, and I only wish we could have stayed in town longer. Our wedding was awesome and I wouldn't have changed a thing! :)

Lansdowne was an amazing venue. After a very relaxed year of planning (relaxed because Lansdowne's wonderful staff - specifically our wedding planner Christina Gibson - made it seem easy and smooth) we had the most fantastic day. From the moment of our walk through to the moment we said "I do" the staff were top notch, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Christina was wonderful to work with and not only kept me (the bride) calm, but worked secretly with my family to plan a few fun surprises. The day of the wedding she walked us through each step of the day so we didn't have to think. Additionally she and her staff did a wonderful job executing my vision for the wedding. I provided Christina with an overwhelming pile of homemade decorations to accompany Lansdowne fantastic decor and she put them in place without pause.

Our guests ranted and raved about the comfort the hotel, the beautiful facilities and grounds, and the amazing personal ad open feel of the wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better day! A special thinks to Christina and her attentive staff. I would highly recommend having your wedding here!!

We worked with Christina Gibson and she was absolutely AMAZING! She helped me with every little issue I had and always with a smile. For example: our 4 yr old has multiple allergies. She allowed me to bring his meal then had them plate it and serve him so he felt like every other guest. When it came to cake time she saw him crying because he couldn't eat it and had the chef make him something he could eat. We did our rehearsal dinner there also and it too was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, it was truly a day of "making dreams come true". My only regret was that I couldn't do it again the next day. Thanks a million Christina!!

My experience at Lansdowne was FANTASTIC! Lindsay and the whole staff are so wonderful and accommodating. They had so many helpful tips along the way and really made the whole planning process great.

Lindsay helped coordinate with the vendors (their recommended vendors list is superb!) and the result was a flawless event - we are still getting comments from family & friends about how great the event was!

Lansdowne was amazing and especially our wedding coordinator, Lindsay Forseth! My wedding day went so smoothly (despite the rain) and even when we had to move the ceremony from outside to inside, Lindsay made sure everything was taken care of. Lindsay was there the whole entire time and she made sure everything was placed where I wanted it, I did not have to worry the entire night. I was pleased with with my "plan B" ceremony location and that is where we ended up! The reception was amazing, the servers all were excellent (at the rehearsal dinner too); also the bartenders were great. We also did a brunch the next morning and it was great! The whole weekend was amazing and I would highly recommend Lansdowne to any future bride! It is a great place to have a wedding where everything can happen all at one place and everyone can stay at the venue. It was the best weekend of my life! There are also lots of places close by for food options, nails, hair, and anything else you might want to do!

Both our ceremony and reception took place here, at the on-the-potomac terrace and pavilion, respectively. The whole event went very smoothly, and Renee was fantastic! I loved how on the morning of the event she called me to let me know she was there for me the whole day and if I needed anything, she would make it happen. The food was delicious, and the ceremony and reception set ups were beautiful.

We just got married this past weekend at Lansdowne Resort and the service, facilities, and staff were amazing. Renee, our catering manager, was amazing throughout the entire process. My fiance' and I knew after our very first meeting with Renee, that we were in good hands. Renee was very accommodating to our needs and requests and followed through on everything we asked for promptly. Everyone that came to the wedding commented on how great the food tasted and how beautiful the Lansdowne was. We got married at the waterfall terrace area and had our reception in the golf club house.

The landscape views provide a beautiful setting for a wedding and the Hearth restaurant we saw had floor to ceiling windows that brings lots of sun inside the space. As a designer, this is definitely a plus! Despite loving the place, we weren't sure we could afford it due to our set budget. We realized this was not going to be a problem because Lindsay Forseth, the venue catering manager, helped us work through our menu and stay within budget. She was not only absolutely helpful but also very nice and welcoming. We truly loved working with her because of her professionalism and easy going personality. Also, she worked well with our Wedding Day Coordinator, Jennifer Smith from Elegantly Chic's Events. Additionally, she went beyond her duties at times to ensure our day went smoothly and stress free for us! Everything turned out beyond our expectations.

Lansdowne Resort was absolutely a great choice we made and we definitely recommend it for future brides and grooms!

Lansdowne Resort is THE best place to have your wedding in Northern Virginia. The location is absolutely stunning, the staff is incredible and friendly and the catering is fabulous.

Renee Russell worked with us from the very beginning to the day of to make our day unforgettable. Through emails, phone calls and in person meetings, she helped us organize our day and took care of our vendors. She was always around to answer all my questions and to give suggestions. We didn't hire a planner, Renee took care of all the day of planning splendidly. She made everything go off without a hitch, even when the weather changed our plans. Thanks Renee!

Lansdowne practically takes care of your every need and will work with you from the very beginning with their vendor lists and recommendations. They were our venue for ceremony and reception, took care of our catering; even our dessert, and Renee was our organizer throughout and for the day of; keeping everything on track and taking care of all our rental needs.

The day of, their staff was fantastic, Renee and Millie took care of us and were so delightful. You can tell they do this all the time and know exactly what they're doing. I don't think anything could surprise them or throw them off! The white glove service is a nice touch, too. Lansdowne includes several perks to their wedding package like a food tasting before the wedding (that was a treat), a round of free golf and a spa gift certificate to mention a few.

We couldn't be happier with the whole team at Lansdowne and the year leading up to the wedding. Thank you all for making our day so special!

Steve even got the sun to come out and the temperature for an outdoor wedding to be perfect.

Our wedding was recently at Lansdowne on 10/27/12 could not have been more perfect. We wish we could do it all again. Lindsay Forseth was our coordinator/Senior Sales Manager and was a huge help. She was always very calm, yet responsive and accomodating no matter what the situation was. She was knowledgable and professional throughout the entire process. We were very pleased with Lansdowne's package and the ability to switch out options in order to cater to our needs and budget as well. The food was a hit and we could not have been more in love with our wedding cake. It was absolutely beautiful and exactly what I had pictured. We had many guests say it was one of the most well put together (and beautiful) weddings they had been too and that the venue was outstanding. I highly recommend Lansdowne, Lindsay Forseth and everything it has to offer for the perfect wedding.

I got married at Lansdowne on September 2, 2012. Working with Renee Russell was wonderful- she always responded promptly, professionally, and with helpful answers to my family's million questions throughout the planning process! The weather for our wedding weekend was iffy, so at the rehearsal we didn't know if we would be outside or inside. Renee had a stomach bug, and still made sure to come to the rehearsal and explain all the details so that, rain or shine, we would be ready to go!

We got married in the Waterfall Terrace, and it was BEAUTIFUL! Our reception at the Clubhouse Ballroom was lovely; the food was amazing and all the waitstaff was pleasant and helpful.

The only issue we ran into was with reservations and check-in. When guests made their reservations, they were told they could not check in until 4- our ceremony started at 4! Fortunately, Lansdowne was flexible & the guests were able to check in early. Also, several guests were not counted in our block of rooms, and we had to follow up with Lansdowne to correct that.

Overall, our wedding was perfect :) Thank you to Renee for helping with the endless details!!!

Our daughter's wedding at Lansdowne could not have been more perfect. Lindsay Forseth was an exceptionally knowledgable and professional wedding planner. She was always calm and collected. She was extremely responsive to our every need and the final results were fabulous. Lansdowne's preferred vendors are top notch and we were very satisfied with their service. We had many overnight guests who could not stop talking about the resort and its outstanding service. One of the biggest hits was the signature drink created by the resort at our daughter's request. It was both fun and delicious. I had hoped for the "WOW" factor when our guests arrived and we got even more than I could have hoped for. Accolades to the resort and all its staff.

Our daughter's wedding was held at Lansdowne on June 30, 2012, and it was an amazing event thanks to all the staff! Lindsay Forseth, senior catering manager, was an excellent event manager. She was a joy to work, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Lindsay was always polite, patient, responsive, and accommodating. She took care of everything from start to finish.

Lesley Lynch, executive meeting manager, was a delight to work with in helping to secure a wedding room block for our guests. She was very professional and always attentive to my questions and requests. The hotel staff was great and made sure our guests were taken care of.

The ceremony at the Waterfall Terrace was beautiful, and the Clubhouse Ballroom looked awesome. The food was absolutely incredible, and our guests are still raving about the delicious cocktail appetizers of bacon wrapped scallops, chicken souvalki, and lollipop of New zealand lamb followed by the exquisite filet mignon and crab cake dinners. The banquet staff was professioal, efficient, and very helpful. Azmat, the banquet manager, was top notch with his service staff.

I highly recommend Lansdowne Resort for a great place to get married. It is the perfect wedding venue!

We began our negotiations with a different wedding planner and were a little frustrated with her lack of response and timeliness. When Renee Russell took over the account, we were thrilled. She always called back or emailed us any answers to questiosn we had in a timely manner. She was a total delight to work with! We spent the weekend at the resort -- had the ceremony out on the terrace and the reception in the club house. My daughter made many things and had 2 car loads of "stuff" for Renee to store on Friday night and then put out on Saturday -- all with a smile on her face and everything done perfectly!

The ony little problem, and I cannot lay blame on Renee for this, was the reservation system. People called up and the reservation person could not find the block or said it was full, when it was not -- seemed to be a little confusion there. When we went to the sales manager directly, he fixed our problem and that of not having enough rooms in our block!

All in all -- a wonderful weekend at Lansdowne -- thank you to Renee and all the wonderful staff!!!!!!!

i had my wedding on 5/27/12 at Lansdowne Resort! I had the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception there. Everything was perfect! Lindsay F. was our coordinator there and she is the best! She really made sure that everything ran smoothly.

May is a perfect time to have a wedding at Lansdowne. Everything is green- we didn't need any flowers at the ceremony.

We used the pavilion for the rehearsal dinner, and it was beautiful, but outdoorsy, and as usual, the food was fantastic. The ceremony was overlooking the golf course.... the pictures could not have turned out better! The reception was in the ball room- we used all 3 rooms and it was perfect for our 235 guests. It didn't seem too "open". We used amber colored uprights to make the room look more cozy/romantic. The food was DELICIOUS! I wish I got to eat more of it! We did the stations option. I got the most compliments on the carving station, mashed potato station, and the crab cakes. I remember from the tasting that these were all good- make sure you eat at your wedding!

The best part about having my wedding at Lansdowne was that everyone could STAY THERE. It was so nice to have all of my friends and family close for the whole weekend. NO one had to drive home after a night of drinking. The rooms were awesome, the pool was amazing, all of the restaurants/food options were delicious! I don't know how we are going to top this wedding- I have 2 younger sisters!

We recently had our daughter's wedding reception at Lansdowne Resort. From the time we contacted Lindsay Forseth in June, 2011 to May 19, 2012 (wedding day), she was extraordinary. She was easy to work with, organized, professional, and always looking out for us. As busy as Lansdowne is, we always felt like "our wedding" was the only one Lindsay was working on. She made us feel very special. Our daughter lived in Boston, and was only able to visit Lansdowne several times. Lindsay was so flexible when scheduling time for linen selection, tastings, and the walk-through. We knew this reception was going to be wonderful and Lindsay was going to make sure of it. She was there throughout the evening, managing things.

Lansdowne is a beautiful venue. Our photographer loved shooting all her wedding photos here. Our guests enjoyed their accomodations, as did we, and we received unbelievable service from everyone at Lansdowne. May 19, 2012 was a day to remember.

We recently had our daughter's wedding reception at Lansdowne Resort. From the time we contacted Lindsay Forseth in June, 2011 to May 19, 2012 (wedding day), she was extraordinary. She was easy to work with, organized, professional, and always looking out for us. As busy as Lansdowne is, we always felt like "our wedding" was the only one Lindsay was working on. She made us feel very special. Our daughter lived in Boston, and was only able to visit Lansdowne several times. Lindsay was so flexible when scheduling time for linen selection, tastings, and the walk-through. We knew this reception was going to be wonderful and Lindsay was going to make sure of it.

Our wedding at Lansdowne Resort was exceptional. Renee Russell was our Catering Sales Manager, and she was wonderful to work with. Renee is extremely organized and responsive; she definitely gave me peace of mind when I was overwhelmed and exceeded my expectations during the entire planning process. She also ran the rehearsal and helped coordinate all of the events on the actual wedding day, from the ceremony to the reception. I was confident that the entire day would run smoothly since it was in her hands, and it truly did. Lansdowne definitely hires the best of the best.

I would also recommend this venue if you want to have the ceremony, reception and hotel accommodations in the same location, it makes planning a lot easier and it's very convenient for your guests. We were going to have the ceremony outside on the terrace, but unfortunately it rained on our wedding day (good luck for the marriage, right?), so we had it inside with the stone waterfall as the backdrop. Despite the inclement weather, it was still a beautiful ceremony. No matter what happens on your wedding day, you cannot go wrong with Lansdowne. We had 100 guests, so we chose the Riverside Hearth as our reception site. The Riverside Hearth is one of Lansdowne's restaurants that can be turned into a stunning reception spot with the right florist, lighting, and linens. I loved how everything looked and several guests raved about how it all just felt so intimate.

Not only are the coordination and scenery excellent, but the food is to die for (the tasting was one of the best parts about planning a wedding here)! We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests on the hors d'oeuvres, entrees, and cake. I guess most people do not expect to have delicious food at a wedding, but Lansdowne will prove you wrong! I could not have asked for a better experience, and would recommend this venue to any bride that prefers working with people who take pride in the quality of their work.

I can't thank Lindsay Foreseth and the staff of Lansdowne enough for helping us to provide our guests with an incredible wedding. We chose Lansdowne to ensure that our guests had a memorable and comfortable wedding weekend - not just the wedding day. Our guests were impressed with hotel, loved the food, and appreciated how attentive the staff was to their needs. Everything was wonderful!

We had our ceremony and reception at Lansdowne. If I could give them over 5.0, I would. We were thrilled with everything.

Lindsay Forseth was our Catering Manager, but she was much more than that. She was practically our wedding planner. She made suggestions on ceremony and reception ideas throughout the year leading up to it and helped recommend vendors. She was there the entire day of the wedding - calling me in the morning just to make sure I didn't need anything, making sure all the vendors set up everything just right, organizing us to walk down the aisle, helping manage the timeline of the reception, making sure my shoes got back to my suite....you name it!

The food was incredible. I was concerned after the tasting that the same quality wouldn't be repeated for 150 people, but it was. I was disappointed I didn't get to eat as much as I wanted on our day because we were talking to all the guests.

All of the waiters and bartenders were professional. They made sure my husband and I, as well as my mom, always had a drink.

With a lot of out of town family, it was great to be able to spend more than an evening reception together - the men played golf on Friday, the ladies went to the spa, and we all got together for breakfast on Sunday morning. Even though we are local, it had all the perks of a destination wedding without the travel time.

The absolute only problem we had was with a few family members calling to book rooms under our reserved block being told the block was full - when it wasn't, however once I contacted the Reservations Manager or Lindsay - it was taken care of immediately!

There is soooo much I could say about Lansdowne. Here just the tip of the iceberg:

- Ceremony Location - ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!! Our wedding was on the back terrace, and it was a perfect day, perfect setting, and fabulous backdrop. We had to add very little to it to make it our own because Lansdowne already takes great care of their grounds.

- Reception - We had the entire ballroom and patio area to ourselves, and it was great. The room setup, little touches Lansdowne puts on the tables for both the cocktail hour and reception, and just the overall look and feel of the room was phenomenal. And the food...I can't say enough...I just wish I could go back and get more!! Our guests raved over the lamb chop appetizers, and couldn't believe we followed that up with filet and crab cake for dinner, and key lime tart for dessert...and that was even before the cake! Our cake was simply elegant and a delicious lemon cake with raspberry and lemon curd filling...delicous!!! Also many thanks to Ms. Millie (banquet manager), our bartender (I can't recall her name but she kept a smile on her face the entire night), and the entire wait staff. They were the best!!

Wedding Planning - unbeknownest to us, Lansdowne provided onsite coordination. Let me tell you, without the help of Lindsay Forseth, I know for a fact our wedding would not have been as great as it was. She was a gem to work with, she has impeccable taste and attention to detail, and she was sooo helpful in making sure our day was perfect. We worked with her from day one, and we are sooo thankful for her and the hard work she put into making sure this day was fabulous. She told us from the start "all you have to do is show up" and literally that's what we did!! She was extremely responsive to the ton of emails I sent her (even thoughI know she was super busy planning other weddings), and on our wedding day she made sure all of our little extras (toasting flutes, reception gift card box, etc) were delivered back to our room. Basically we didn't have to worry about a thing! Hopefully her management is reading this because she should be commended for what a great job she did on our wedding!! Thanks again Lindsay!

Rooms - Our bridal suite and guests rooms were great. The bridal suite was huge, and offered enough space for both myself and my husband to get ready in different areas so that we wouldn't see each other, and at the end of the evening we were given a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries to top off a fabulous day.

There's a lot more I could say but I'll sum it all up with THANK YOU LANSDOWNE FOR MAKING OUR DAY AND THIS EXPERIENCE SOOOO SPECIAL!!

Loved, loved, loved having our wedding at Lansdowne Resort. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of from the time we arrived to check out Lansdowne all the way up until the day after our wedding. Also, the wedding packages they offer include alot which is really nice because it's one less thing the bride and groom have to worry about or take care of.

Our on-site coordinator Lindsay was also awesome! She answered all of our questions, alleviated any concerns we had, and was very attentive throughout the entire process. We really didn't have to worry about anything which was a very nice feeling. What a wonderful, smooth, and stress free wedding day we had thanks to Lansdowne Resort and their amazing staff!

Both of our wedding coordinators Kristen and Noel were excellent, I felt really comfortable from the moment I met them. My husband and I were really pleased with everything, we had our ceremony outside and it was just beautiful the way it was, we didn't add much except for flower petals on the floor. For our reception we didn't want to be indoors so we had it at the pavilion and it was just perfect for us. Our wedding wasn't that big and it accommodated 60 people without any problems. Our entire guest absolutely loved the food and cake, for the amount of money that we paid it was well worth it. I would recommend Noel in a heartbeat for any future brides; she is very professional, friendly and made our wedding day just perfect. So thank you Noel for all you hard work.

When searching for a place for our daughter’s wedding. Our criteria was to have a beautiful place for our guests to stay and enjoy, the ability to have an indoor/outdoor cocktail hour, a big ball room with plenty of room for dancing, and The Lansdowne was able to give us that and more. The food was delicious, our guests raved about the crab cakes and the filet mignon with toasted walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. All our appetizers were just amazing, and there was plenty being brought around. The service was terrific from meetings with our coordinator, Lindsay Forseth, to the banquet manager, bartenders and service staff. Everything went smoothly through the event, Lindsay checked in with us frequently to see if we needed anything. After the reception, we were able to reserve the Fire Pit area for our private party with a bartender, just a wonderful way to end the evening with our family and friends.

The venue was the first thing I booked almost a year out because I knew it would be a coveted weekend as I wanted to have my wedding on Labor Day weekend since I knew most everyone would have Monday off which would give my guests adequate time to travel back/recoup before returning to work on Tuesday. Therefore I had been in communications with everyone at Lansdowne for about a year before the wedding day actually came. Everyone I worked with was so responsive and professional which is key for me as I am a stickler about people not responding to me in a timely manner as I just think when you are wedding planning it is a much needed touch as you are feeling frantic and typically want responses ASAP so that you can continue on with your planning, which I was able to do with all the timely responses I received from everyone at Lansdowne. I initially began my wedding planning with Leslie Eyster who was fabulous and really helped me create the wedding I wanted around my budget. We were able to cut things out that I didn't feel were necessary so that I was able to cut on some of the cost, which I really appreciated. Later in my planning, the reigns were turned over to Lindsay Forseth, who was a true joy to work with. She was the best day of coordinator that I could have asked for. I mean I seriously felt as if I had booked a weeding coordinator, without actually paying for one, because she pretty much handled everything for me, it was pretty unbelievable. Every time a "crisis" struck (which there were many as can expected with weddings) she had a solution for my problem. She was so flexible and really worked with me through everything. The day of the wedding, I was treated like a queen by all the staff. Lindsay was there all day to help me with anything I needed and everyone there was extremely attentive and responsive to all my needs.

Lansdowne Resort is the best all around package if you are looking for a gorgeous venue for a ceremony & reception with all the bells & whistles which also can serve as a mini vacation spot for your guests to stay the whole entire weekend, if they'd like (perfect for out of town guests!). The outdoor ceremony location is amazing and has a breathtaking backdrop and then just mere steps, with no driving involved, you and your guests can go enjoy a party/reception in an amazing venue filled with wonderful staff who constantly come around and check on you to make sure everything about the day is going as you wanted and will do whatever is needed to make sure they fix anything to conform with your needs and wants.

I cannot say enough about this place! If you are wanting a fabulous wedding you have to come check out Lansdowne resort as an option for your wedding venue otherwise you are truly missing out.

My husband and I selected Lansdowne to hold our ceremony and reception on July 2, 2011. We met with Lindsay Forseth almost a year and a half before the wedding - she was extraordinary to work with from day one. Everyone we had come in contact with at Lansdowne was very responsive, flexible, understanding and very helpful. I enjoyed working with Lindsay because she was very accomodating and patient with our room block, as we had many out of town guests staying at the Resort. She also provided feedback and guidance on other wedding related topics that many wouldn't think a catering sales manager would be willing to assist with. I had her review my ceremony programs and asked for her insight on several ideas I had during my planning. The staff was on point with setting up every detail we requested for the ceremony and reception from rehearsal to rehearsal dinner to our big day! They were super nice to us and our guests and were very professional. On top of all this, Lansdowne is a very beautiful place for such an occassion. The rooms were spectacular and our guests really enjoyed their stay. Thank you Lindsay and team! I wouldn't change anything about our wedding - it was perfect thanks to you!

This is the perfect place to have a wedding. They took care of everything my bride and I didn't want to worry about. They have and awesome ceremony location and they even offer a backup indoor area in case of rain. The staff was fantastic and were always on point to our needs throughout the day. Lindsay Forseth, the coordinator there was the best. She took care of every detail and basically took away any stress we had about the ceremony and reception. To be brief, the food was delicious, the place was gorgeous, and the amenities were awesome. Another thing to consider is that you can have the ceremony, reception, and have guests stay at the same place. Overall I would recommend Landsdowne Resort to any couple looking for a great place to get married.

I got married in March 2011 and had my reception at Lansdowne. I had a fantastic experience. We worked with Lindsay Forseth, now the Senior Catering Sales Manager. She made everything so easy. I didn't have much time to plan my wedding, and I could not have done it without her. She recommended all of my vendors, which saved me a ton of time. Lansdowne is extremely accomodating and honored every single one of our requests. They don't nickle and dime you for little things. They are straightforward and fair. I found their prices in March to be a great value, since it was considered off season. I truly got the best wedding experience I could have asked for. Right down to the last second, Lindsay took care of me and my family. She took care of all the little things I would have forgotten -- the cards, the toasting flutes...they were all delivered safely and soundly to our room. Even though she was probably planning plenty of other weddings, I felt like mine was the only one! I don't know how she does it, but I am grateful I found her. I would highly recommend the ballroom with the big porch...it's a great spot to relax and get some fresh air during your wedding. Lansdowne even arranged for us to have outdoor heaters at no charge. Finally, the food was awesome! I was on a pretty tight budget so I wanted to save money wherever possible. I went with the Classic buffet and it was fabulous. I don't think you can get a bad meal there.

I got married in March 2011 and had my reception at Lansdowne. I had a fantastic experience. We worked with Lindsay Forseth, now the Senior Catering Sales Manager. She made everything so easy. I didn't have much time to plan my wedding, and I could not have done it without her. She recommended all of my vendors, which saved me a ton of time. Lansdowne is extremely accomodating and honored every single one of our requests. They don't nickle and dime you for little things. They are straightforward and fair. I found their prices in March to be a great value, since it was considered off season. I truly got the best wedding experience I could have asked for. Right down to the last second, Lindsay took care of me and my family. She took care of all the little things I would have forgotten -- the cards, the toasting flutes...they were all delivered safely and soundly to our room. Even though she was probably planning plenty of other weddings, I felt like mine was the only one! I don't know how she does it, but I am grateful I found her. I would highly recommend the ballroom with the big porch...it's a great spot to relax and get some fresh air during your wedding. Lansdowne even arranged for us to have outdoor heaters at no charge.

This was such a great place to get married. We had a winter wedding in the clubhouse and it was amazing. The food was awesome and we have gotten so many compliments on it. The staff was friendly, helpful, and organized. I loved working with Lindsay because she never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. Amazing experience!

I just had my wedding at Lansdowne on NYE 2010. It was the best weekend night of my life. Lindsay Forseth was my wedding planner and she was phenomenal! Everything ran so smoothly!!! The room was absolutely stunning. The service was exceptional! The waiters were so attentive! Our personal server was Ozmat and he was awesome! And our cake was beautiful! We had the lansdowne baker write with frosting words all over it. The first tier was places we would been, the second was our favorites (teams, games), the third was sayings between us, and our 4th was our wedding date, the day we got engaged, and our names. It was amazing! Thank you Lansdowne and Lindsay Forseth for giving me the best night of my life and something I will remember forever!

My daughter was married at Lansdowne on Sept. 26 and it was an exceptional event. I highly recommend Ashley Fenstermaker who was a superb catering/wedding event manager. Our chef was excellent and did a fantastic job decorating the wedding cake with exceptional detail just as my daughter had requested. The hotel staff went out of their way to assist especially on the morning of the wedding when we were uncertain that the weather would cooperate. They set up an indoor ballroom, just in case, and assured us that every detail would be taken care of if the event was moved inside. The weather cleared in time for an outdoor ceremony and the event was picture perfect. We held the reception in the Clubhouse and it is truly a beautiful venue. The bridal suite was luxurious with two balconies and a panoramic view. Lansdowne is a venue that caters to the bride and takes the stress out of event planning!

Lansdowne Resort was the best place for us to hold our ceremony and reception. We were looking for a resort-type location that had rooms for our guests, that was a one-stop shop for all wedding activites, that was close to an airport, and that had it together when it came to service. Lansdowne not only met our expectations, but far exceeded it. Our guests were extremely please with the resorts service and amenities, while we (the bride and groom) felt completely pampered and catered to. Most of this thanks to our wonderful catering manager, Leslie Eyester. Thank you to all the staff at Lansdowne who made our wedding a beautiful event.

Lansdowne was absolutely the perfect choice for our wedding. Leslie Eyster, the catering manager, is fantastic!! There are no words to accurately describe how wonderful she was during the whole planning process. Her flexibility, excellent communication, and caring attitude were just a few of the reasons why our wedding went so beautifully. Everything from the ceremony room to the cocktails to the reception were set up perfectly and the staff at Lansdowne are really team players. From the gentlemen who help unload the cars (and we brought A LOT of stuff!) to the desk staff to the catering team, it was a truly spectacular weekend and we couldn't have pulled it off without the Lansdowne team. So, Lansdowne Resort comes HIGHLY recommended!!

Lansdowne Resort was the PERFECT place for our wedding and reception. Everyone had a wonderful time and dubbed our wedding as a "platinum wedding". Lindsay Forseth, our catering manager was there for us whenever we needed her. Whether a simple question or friendly reminders on when things were due...she made the planning process THAT much easier.

The food is phenomenal, one of our favorite parts was going to the tasting! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful to all of our guests.

I would highly recommend Lansdowne to any bride getting married in the Northern Virginia/DC area. It is top notch and we look forward to spending our first anniversary there!

I would recommend Lansdowne to anyone looking for the full package - a beautiful space, great food, and awesome people. Our coordinator, Leslie, was great to work with and she's so super sweet.

I can not begin to tell you what an incredible time I had this weekend!! Everything was perfect from the time I arrived until the time I left. Everyone at the hotel was so helpful and friendly and such a pleasure. The rooms were great the food was great and then there was the whole event. Thank you so much for making it what it was. The shuttles to ceremony made me not think twice about the weather which was really the only thing that might have put any kind of damper on the wedding. It didn't seem like a single person was remotely bothered by it. The pavilion was perfect, the cocktail hour was great and the reception was top notch. You really made me feel like I did not have to worry about a thing. The service was incredible, every time I turned around there was someone there to make sure I had everything I needed. Really I can't stop thinking about what a PERFECT night it was. Thank you for all your help through the whole planning process, the e-mails, the phone calls, everything was smooth and, well...perfect! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help!!

It's been almost six months since our wedding at Lansdowne and guests are still talking about what a beautiful ceremony and reception it was. We felt like VIPs throughout the entire weekend and can not imagine a more perfect place for our dream wedding.

The surroundings and atmosphere were absolutely beautiful - our guests loved their luxuorious hotel rooms and the fun activities around the resort (the pool was huge hit!). We had a great time at Stonewall's Tavern - dancing until close both nights! The Terrace was a perfect spot for our ceremony and we had no weather worries knowing the Pavilion was a beautiful alternative in the case of inclement weather. The Clubhouse Ballroom was ideal for the cocktail hour and dinner/dance reception. The entire staff was very responsive and accomodating - as a result, the evening went off without a hitch. We were able to relax and enjoy our wedding weekend without worrying about anything.

Lindsay Forseth did a fabulous job - very professional, calm, organized, and helpful. With her good taste and experience, we had no need to hire an outside wedding planner. She guided us every step of the way and was a joy to work with.

One piece of advice - remind your guests to bring their IDs, as the resort is careful about checking for underage drinking.

We were thrilled with our choice of holding our wedding at Lansdowne Resort and would highly recommend Lansdowne and Lindsay to friends and family who are planning their weddings.

We had our reception at the Lansdowne Resort clubhouse and we couldn't have been happier with our event. The ballroom at the clubhouse has an amazing terrace that overlooks the Potomac River and it was exactly what we wanted. It was a ballroom without the claustrophobic ballroom feel. We also had a lot of privacy since we were the only event at the clubhouse, which is located apart from the rest of the resort and has its own parking lot.

Leslie Coe was an excellent wedding coordinator and I would recommend her to anyone. There wasn't a request we could throw her way that she couldn't accomodate for us. Everyone at Lansdowne made our wedding incredibly memorable, gorgeous and amazing. All our guests loved the resort as well.

My only complaint, one of Leslie's assistants sliced into our cake before we got a chance to. I know she meant well (she thought it would make things easier for us), but in actuality we felt robbed. I think we could have managed to cut it ourselves without the extra help. Just a warning... wherever you end up having your wedding, DON'T let anyone do that. It'll really make you sad afterwards.

She really listened to us and managed to produce just the atmosphere we were looking for - elegant dinner/dance. She went over and above the call of duty, and she was always a responsive phone call or email away. The food was excellent, the venue was beautiful (Golf Club), and there was room for people to spread out on the terrace and in the foyers. Everyone raved - no conference fare here. I can't say enough about Lansdowne's willingness to work with us to create a superb experience.

The first time I visited Lansdowne, I knew that that was the place I wanted to be married at (and that was before I knew I would be getting married). The Catering Sales Manager (Alyson Margoni Killian) was wonderful, and really knew what she was doing. No matter how many times I called her to discuss things with her she always had a smile in her voice. Having to plan a long distance wedding she really made me fill comfortable and assured me that I had nothing to worry about. She was always available, helpful and offered suggestions when I was too tired to think pass my nose.

They go above and beyond to try and make your day just the way you want it. Additionally, we had wanted to use an outside Korean caterer (in addition to the Lansdowne buffet) - which they normally don't allow. However, they were flexible enough to allow us to use an outside caterer. Everyone loved the hotel and the food!

We had our wedding on 5/3/14 at Lansdowne Resort. We worked with Leslie Eyster (event planner) and Cate Tsinger (room block manager).

We had a large wedding--250 guests. The vast majority of them stayed at the hotel, and Cate made sure that they got excellent rooms, clustered together and at great rates.

Leslie was unreal. We had a 150+ person rehearsal dinner, a 250 person wedding and a huge morning after brunch. Leslie did an flawless job putting everything together and making sure that everything came off as planned and without a hitch.

The hotel staff is 5 star hotel caliber. Everyone was amazing.

Lansdowne is an spectacular place to host a wedding. Because we had so many out of town guests, we wanted somewhere where people could hang out and relax together, enjoy outdoor activities, have great food, etc. The facilities were perfect. We could gather informally in many different outdoor areas (we had 150 people for smores by the firepit after rehearsal dinner), enjoy meals in different restaurants without leaving the property (all excellent), have many options for ceremony locations (we chose to have it outdoors) and the ballroom is beautiful.

Overall, we had an amazing experience. Leslie and Cate get particular props for helping us make this the weekend of our dreams!

Leslie was unreal. We had a 150+ person rehearsal dinner, a 250 person wedding and a huge morning after brunch. Leslie did an flawless job putting everything together and making sure that everything came off as planned and without a hitch.

The hotel staff is 5 star hotel caliber. Everyone was amazing.

Lansdowne is an spectacular place to host a wedding. Because we had so many out of town guests, we wanted somewhere where people could hang out and relax together, enjoy outdoor activities, have great food, etc. The facilities were perfect. We could gather informally in many different outdoor areas (we had 150 people for smores by the firepit after rehearsal dinner), enjoy meals in different restaurants without leaving the property (all excellent), have many options for ceremony locations (we chose to have it outdoors) and the ballroom is beautiful.

Overall, we had an amazing experience. Leslie and Cate get particular props for helping us make this the weekend of our dreams! Read less

It so happens that my husband and I got engaged at Lansdowne Resort and he mentioned looking into having a wedding at this AMAZING location. I thought that the price may be out of my budget. However, Renee Russell, the catering manager, worked with me endlessly to ensure I could have the wedding of my dreams at Lansdowne Resort. My wedding was August 24th at 11am with a 1130 cocktail hour/reception. Everything turned out fabulously!!! My friends often joke that it was the best day party they have ever attended. Renee was extremely instrumental in the planning process. She was very flexible and provided me with tons of ideas. I am a very detail oriented person and no request was too little to take into account. About half of my guests stayed at the property during the wedding. There were also 3 other weddings that weekend and you would not have noticed except for all the welcome gift bags. Since the wedding was during the day, I through an "after party" in Stonewall Tavern for guests to meet up after the wedding. That was a lot of fun.

More details: It rained during the rehearsal. So we didn't practice on the Potomac Terrace but they had chairs setup and ready to go inside at the Waterfall area. For the actual wedding, you can NOT go wrong with the Potomac Terrace. The location is gorgeous with the backdrop of the golf course, Potomac river, and mountains. I was really blessed cause it was a perfect day of 75 degrees in AUGUST!! Wow to say the least. In terms of the food, guests absolutely loved the crab fritters and signature drink I created. They made positive comments on the new york strip and chicken wellington. But, I think the huge hit was the sundae bar we had in addition to the cake. Guests flocked to that area and it was extremely enjoyable for a summer wedding.

Lansdowne made all my dreams come true. There were so many positives about this location I can't name them all on this site. But, I can't thank Renee and her staff enough for everything.

Choosing Lansdowne was by and far the BEST decision we made while planning our wedding. It set the tone for such an amazing wedding weekend!! Working with Renee Russell was such a pleasure - she was so responsive to every email I sent her (of which there were many!!) and always had a really prompt response time. The entire weekend was perfect - from when my guests arrived on Friday and hung out by the pool, where the drinks and the service were both amazing, to the rehearsal ceremony, bridal suite, etc etc.
We had 120 guests, of whom 86 ordered steak, and not only did people tell me it was the BEST wedding food they'd ever had, a few people said it was the best steak they'd ever had!! Having the wedding at Lansdowne was so convenient as many of things were handled in-house or coordinated by Renee, including uplighting, food & beverage, the bar, tablecloth rentals, chair rentals, etc. It made planning the wedding a headache-free experience because Renee handled all the details and I just had to make the decisions!
Our wedding had a brunch the following day and the hotel helped my florist to move many of my centerpieces to the brunch room after the reception ended. The brunch was a huge hit as well - it was so wonderful for our guests to be able to spend the whole weekend together! Everyone was very impressed with the entire hotel facility - the hotel rooms, pool, spa, golf course, and of course the Clubhouse Ballroom!
I had extremely high expectations for how my wedding would be, and Lansdowne Resort and Renee BLEW ME AWAY!!! I would 110% recommend any brides-to-be to use Lansdowne - just make sure you ask for Renee!!

Lansdowne turned out to be the perfect choice for us for a few reasons. One, we had a lot of guests from out of town, so having a location with a hotel was really helpful, and there were plenty of less expensive options nearby for those who couldn't or didn't want to pay the $189 a night cost (which I think was higher than normal because it was a holiday weekend in July... we were told it was closer to $150 when we were thinking of having the wedding in August). The people who did the room block weren't always the most responsive, but overall, that experience was fine.

Two, the ceremony setting - the terrace - was incredible. It was a hot day, but it was absolutely beautiful and breezy, and the terrace was almost completely shaded by our 6pm ceremony, so while it wasn't as comfortable as it would have been if it was 70 degrees, it was actually quite nice. The flowers and mountain views were so nice as a backdrop that we only had minimal decor up there (you could do it... that just wasn't a priority for us).

The reception was in the Clubhouse ballroom, which was beautiful and not too "ballroom-y", which we were trying to avoid. It was the perfect size for our 100 person, 12 table reception, and having the terrace in the back was a nice touch.

And finally, we were never interested in doing a ton of planning and organizing with 50 different vendors, so the package at Lansdowne is perfect in that nearly everything, including our awesome coordinator, Steve, comes with it from the food to the drinks to our room that night. The cost was very reasonable for everything the package included, especially because they were extremely flexible with our food choices and even how we spent the money.

I also want to say that I got numerous comments on the responsiveness and professionalism of the staff AT the wedding, including one guest who said she actually went out of her way to tell them it was the best service she's ever had. They were very attentive to us as well!

We definitely would recommend Lansdowne Resort for your wedding! The facilities are top notch and the service is uncomparable. Its close proximity to the airport (only about 8 miles) makes it easily accessible for those long distance attendees. The Spa, restaurants, pools and golf courses are outstanding. The food is excellent and the staff are more than eager to help you out. It's a little pricey, but you get your money's worth! If you and your attendees are able to spend a the money, Lansdowne is definitely where you want to be!

Everything was great about our special day! From the planning, the rehearsal, the ceremony and the reception! Renee did such an awesome job! She was very quick to respond to all emails and questions. The big day was effortless for me, all I had to do was show up. We gave her the decorations and directions of where everything went, we didnt have to put any of it up ourselves, less to worry about when there is so much going on. She also collected everything from the reception and had it waiting in our suite by the end of the night. What a great experience! The food was amazing and the cake was even better!

Before my husband and I even got engaged, he told me that he wanted to get married at Lansdowne. What a great choice! We got married on the outdoor terrace, which was beautiful in its own right. Directly following the ceremony, while our guests enjoyed cocktail hour and we took pictures, our event staff brought us hors d'oeuvres and drinks, which I thought was very nice. Our reception was in the grand ballroom - we had Salon A & B with 130 people, and I thought it was the perfect amount of space.

Lindsay Forseth was our coordinator up until the day of our event, and she was amazing to work with. She was very responsive, helped us with any questions that we had and was very nice and professional. Our day-of coordinator was Christina, and she did an awesome job. I was a little worried, since we had switched from Lindsay to Christina, but there was no reason for that! Christina made sure everything was set up perfectly, made sure we always had what we needed during the reception, and kept things on track. They both did a great job and I would absolutely recommend Lansdowne - not just because it's a beautiful venue, but because the service and attention there is fantastic.

Lansdowne made all of my wedding dreams come true! It's an absolutely beautiful venue and they do weddings very well. We had our ceremony on the potomac bridal terrace and our reception in the clubhouse ballroom. I would definitely recommend it. The clubhouse ballrooom is nice because it's seperate from the main hotel so you really feel like you have your own space without other hotel guests intruding. We worked with Renee and she was amazing! I am very indecisive and changed my mind about several things throughout the process of planning (table linens, chairs, etc) and she never acted annoyed just changed everything and was very flexible about it. We worked together for months to work out all of the details and I had very specific insturctions about a lot of things and on the wedding day she and Lansdowne executed everything perfectly. The food was also really good-we had many guests come up to us and tell us that it was the best food they've had at a wedding. The only negative things about the process of having our wedding at Lansdowne had nothing to do with Renee or the catering department. Lansdowne's accounting department is not so great from our experience with them. They messed up charges several times for both my parents and my in-laws. For example, my in-laws paid for a Mashed Potato bar for the after party which was only supposed to be $500 and Lansdowne ended up charging their card $19,000 after! They had a few charges like this from Lansdowne so I would just make sure you are watching your credit card statement. However, like I said..this is not a reflection on the Lansdowne Catering and Event department!

Renee Russell made our wedding logistics easy. She acted professionally, warmly, and enthusiastically during the planning process and maintained a calm demeanor during the last week and day of our event. Renee managed the long-distance logistics with good documentation and clarified decisions - my son and his bride-to-be were working the details from Japan (13 hours time difference). She was attentive and thoughtful in answering questions and explaining processes and alternatives available at the venue/Lansdowne. She anticipated our needs on the day of the event and took care of us behind the scenes. Her coordination with our vendors (DJ, florist, photographer) was flawless. The food was amazing and the wait staff were professional. The cake was superb. Our guests were extremely complimentary. I highly recommend Renee and Lansdowne for your event.

She is extremely professional, great at what she does, and everything was perfect down to the littlest details. I knew Lansdowne was nice, but after having my wedding there I think even more highly of it and was blown away by the quality of service and food, the views, the breakfast, cleanliness, and overall experience. Overall I would highly recommend Lansdowne and Lindsay and I would do it there again without question. They do a great job from start to finish.

I LOVED having my wedding at Lansdowne! Part of me wanted a destination wedding and Lansdowne made it feel far enough from home that it felt like a destination but close enough that local friends could drive back home if they so chose. I wanted a venue that had lodging, activities and my ceremony location in one. The pools and golf course provided an AWESOME day-before celebration for my now husband and I and all our friends! Any family and friends coming to the rehearsal dinner were invited to check in (or at least have thier stuff held at the front desk if thier rooms weren't ready) and join Josh on the golf course or me at the pool! It was so much fun! About 4 weeks before my wedding we found out after many unreturned phone calls that the venue we booked for our Rehearsal Dinner (approx. 80 people on a Saturday night) had CLOSED!!!! And they never contacted us!! We got in touch with Lindsay at Lansdowne and she was able to get me and my party into the Golf Member's Club for my rehearsal dinner - Lindsay and her staff really saved the day there! Lindsay was awesome herself too, always there to answer my questions (or mom's or MIL's!). It stormed the morning of my (outdoor) reception and as I was freaking out, I was told to be calm as we had an alternate indoor location, but low and behold, the skies cleared and I was able to have my BEAUTIFUL outdoor wedding as planned! Everything about that night was wonderful and the honeymoon suite was as well! I would definitely recommend Lansdowne to anyone looking to get away, but not *too* far ;)

We were very pleased with everything about Lansdowne. Originally, we were hesitant due to the price, but we had heard so many great things about the service and the resort, we decided to go with them. Boy, are we sure glad we did! Everything - the food, the staff, the responsiveness to little things - everything was great. I only wish the night hadn't gone by so fast! Highly recommend this venue for a wedding reception!

Lansdowne Resort did a fabulous job. Our wedding coordinator Lindsay Forseth was awesome. She was always pleasant and professional and willing to answer my million questions!

We had our ceremony on the outdoor terrace and our reception in the golf clubhouse. Our guests said it was the best wedding food they have ever had.

There were a few things we were disappointed with......

- we didn't get to eat a piece of cake. It seemed like the staff was eager to clear things before they needed to clear them (we had an evening wedding so I'm sure they wanted to get home since our reception ended at 11:30pm/12am) which was disappointing considering we paid for the cake that a lot of our guests did not get to eat.
- A lot of our guests never even saw the lobby where we had our guest card table, pictures of my husband and I when we were little and a guest signature platter. I heard the staff directed people to the back terrace for cocktail hour instead of telling people to sign the platter and then head out (to avoid getting too crowded).
-We also didn't realize the signature drink was not going to be served in a martini glass (minor detail that's not a huge deal).

But overall we had a fabulous experience with Lansdowne. They did an excellent job and we would highly recommend them. Oh and the honeymoon suite is huge!!! I can't wait to go back for our one year anniversary!!!

It seemed like the staff was eager to clear things before they needed to clear them (we had an evening wedding so I'm sure they wanted to get home since our reception ended at 11:30pm/12am) which was disappointing considering we paid for the cake that a lot of our guests did not get to eat.
- A lot of our guests never even saw the lobby where we had our guest card table, pictures of my husband and I when we were little and a guest signature platter. I heard the staff directed people to the back terrace for cocktail hour instead of telling people to sign the platter and then head out (to avoid getting too crowded).
-We also didn't realize the signature drink was not going to be served in a martini glass (minor detail that's not a huge deal).

But overall we had a fabulous experience with Lansdowne. They did an excellent job and we would highly recommend them. Oh and the honeymoon suite is huge!!! I can't wait to go back for our one year anniversary!!! Read less

Excellent service, professionalism, and very courteous. Banquet staff was courteous and very flexible but needed to stay on top of timeline. Renee Russell herself was fabulous.captain azmat was excellent as well but I wish he had more help in managing waiting staff.

We had the absolute BEST experience without wedding at Lansdowne. Lindsay was our wedding coordinator and she was the most accommodating, responsive and helpful. She made the whole process as stress free as it could be. From the rehearsal dinner, to the ceremony, reception and brunch - there was nothing we would have changed! Our ceremony outside on the patio was beautiful and the crape myrtle trees were in full bloom. We would highly recommend any couple get married at Lansdowne! All of the guests kept telling us how perfect the location was!

Lansdowne is beautiful. We had our outdoor ceremony and lovely reception there. The ceremony was scheduled for outside but we had such an amazing indoor space I wasnt even worried about rain. The reception was held in the golf club space. It was perfect in size and most importantly it had an outside patio which was perfect as it cooled off. Renee worked with us and she was very pleasent. She got back to us in a timely manner and was flezible in many differnet ways. She was also present on the day of the wedding so I felt great about the whole thing. The only thing I would suggest is figuring out your room block, it was hard to add more rooms within the month leading upto the wedding. Overall, my wedding was great and I LOVED Lansdowne.

My wedding at Lansdowne Resort was AMAZING. Everyone had an incredible time. The accomodations at the hotel were great, and the event went off without a hitch. The ceremony location on the terrace was BEAUTIFUL, and the Golf Club Ballroom looked awesome! Everyone raved about the food. Noel Mahler worked on our wedding, and she was great. She answered every question and made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed throughout the whole process and especially on our wedding day!

Though this beautiful resort is only 25 minutes away from my parents' home in Great Falls, I had never even heard of it until I asked them for suggestions for reception venues. My husband and I live in NYC, and with 95% of his guests coming from overseas, it was important for us to choose a place where our families could make themselves at home for a few days - and they did just that! Our families began arriving the Tuesday before our Saturday wedding, and immediately made themselves at home in the Stonewall Tavern, which, thanks to the Wiis, pool tables, and dart boards, was an excellent headquarters. You could always find someone in the Stonewall! Also crucial was the full breakfast buffet included in the daily room rate, which everyone enjoyed and used as another opportunity to come together. Lansdowne's three golf courses were also a huge draw for both of our families, and my husband hosted a golf tournament on the Friday before the wedding for the men, while ladies enjoyed a tour at a local vineyard. Lansdowne's facilities were overall wonderful - the common areas were beautiful and modern, Spa Minerale was a fantastic retreat, and family members of all ages spent a great deal of time in the aquatics centers. My only complaint would be that the guest rooms, while clean, comfortable and inviting at first glance, were missing modern upgrades that even common hotel chains feature. Lansdowne, you need flat screens! As for service, I do not have one complaint to put forth regarding Lansdowne's staff. By the end of the week the staff at Stonewall knew every detail about our family! Our catering manager, Lyndsey Forseth, could surely plan a state dinner without breaking a sweat. She had an answer for every concern, big or small, and was so great in helping to finalize our menu, including suggesting the most amazing dessert I ever ate in my life (I wanted to hide under the table with it!) and promising me the bakers could deliver my dream cake - which they did, 5 layers of forest tree delight! When Lyndsey hosted our tasting, it was so remarkable I would have sworn there was no way it could be replicated for 160 guests, but every single guest commented how they'd never had better food at a wedding. We felt so at home at Lansdowne for the duration of our stay. Definitely indulge in a hot stone massage at Spa Minerale, and don't forget to pick up a smores kit from the front desk and spend some time enjoying the bonfire overlooking the golf course!

The resort was beautiful and everything came together perfectly on our big day despite the rain. There were a few glitches in the beginning with unexpected increases in service fees, and the fact that we were told the groom and his groomsmen could golf on the Friday before the wedding, and then that was revoked. Apparently you may only use the golf course on even days of the month, not odd days of the month. FYI. We also had SEVERAL problems with our friends and family trying to book their rooms. There was a lot of confusion early on, but that eventually got straightened out. It just was not what I was expecting for the Four Star resort they are supposed to be.

Lindsay Forseth was an amazing coordinator and was very professional and courteous as well as helpful the whole time we were planning.

They would have received perfect scores across the board had we not run into those glitches in the beginning.

Lansdowne was beautiful, and for the money, the best around. We got married on a Sunday to receive a discount, as well as early afternoon to reduce other costs. Food was amazing, we received several compliments on how good it was. The location for ceremony was amazing and overall the wedding was perfect!

You receive a catering/event manager as a planner, we were very pleased with most of the services, but some of the responsiveness was a little slower than preferable. Everything came together perfectly, and the staff were amazing!

We had our wedding at Lansdowne and it turned out great. The grounds are beautiful, Renee is awesome, and the day-of service was perfect.

We chose to go with a "full-service" venue given that we had to plan the wedding cross country. After selected Lansdowne, we began the planning process with another catering manager but was transferred to Renee after a couple of months. This was the best thing to happen to us. Just before then, we had actually thought about cancelling with Lansdowne and forgoing the deposit due to the pain and frustration of of working with our original planner. So glad we got Renee. Totally recommend her!

Renee was super helpful throughout the planning process. She was quick to respond and strove very hard to meet all of our requests. When spending a lot of money on a wedding, we pretty much expected to hear "Sure, I'll make it happen" which is what Renee did. (Previously it was no...I don't know....let me check...I don't think so....or just no response) With planning cross country, communication was super important to us to give us peace of mind. Renee was completely transparent throughout and communicated everything that was necessary.

Food was great. This was the main reason we selected Lansdowne and they lived up to our expectations on the day of. Our guests loved the food and professional service.

Only downside was that you only get one night at the resort after the wedding. We paid for the suite the night before so the bridal party could get ready. But not the night after. So in the morning, it was a mad rush to clean up the suite since we had to check out at noon with no exceptions. Cleaning up an entire suite as a newly married couple who had been out partying late the night before is not fun.

Overall...Lansdowne was awesome though.

Overall I was very pleased with Lansdowne Resort. The only reason I didn't rate them higher was because they are on the pricey end of all the venues I looked at and they do tend to be busy so it may take them a day or two to respond to your messages. HOWEVER, they are worth every penny I spent. My coordinator didn't miss one detail (and we had a lot of little details). The resort is absolutely beautiful and they are super flexible. I was able to change which room I wanted for my reception a few times as my list of invitees grew. We were also able to book a primary and secondary location for the ceremony just in case the weather turned out to be nice that day (we had a February wedding). If you are looking to have a super low stress wedding... go to Lansdowne and let them handle your big day.

I wish I could give separate reviews for the hotel/booking staff and the wedding services. If I could just review my Lansdowne catering manager assigned to me for my wedding, I'd give her 5 stars across the board. Renee Russell was our catering manager, essentially our wedding coordinator. Although she is new to Lansdowne and was assigned to us mere months before our wedding because our original catering manager left Lansdowne, she was absolutely fabulous. She was incredibly professional, warm, excited and eager to help, incredibly quick in her responses, and really just a breath of fresh air to deal with. I had a lot of DIY wedding details, and she managed to set everything up perfectly for our ceremony and reception. Even if there were things she didn't know, she would find out the answer for us as soon as humanly possible. There was hardly any wish of ours that she couldn't make happen. I felt like a huge wreck the day of my wedding because I had so much to get done, but she made everything so much easier and made me feel mentally at ease.

Aside from our fabulous experience with Renee, the catering department in general was fantastic. The food was amazing....seriously. My new husband and I are definitely self-professed food critics, and we were seriously impressed with the quality of the food, and heard the same from all of our guests. The catering staff were also very personable, professional, and friendly. My only complaint is that they were a little overzealous in clearing tables...a few people complained that their food and drinks were taken away before they were done, and somehow a very sentimental object was accidentally picked up off of a table and unable to be located again. Overall though, our wedding experience was great.

As for the hotel itself, I had many issues with the inflexibility and confusing responsiveness of the hotel staff. We had certain things promised to us for our room block, then the person who promised us would conveniently disappear or quit, and we'd have to re-explain the situation several times to several different people. Eventually it all worked out, but it was a major headache to handle our room block. On a positive note, all of the guest services people who helped with luggage and wedding decor and lugging them around the hotel were fantastic. However, we planned to stay 2 nights (the night of the wedding and the night after), and unfortunately the bridal suite we were in the first day was not available for our second night, so we were assured that we could easily be transitioned to another suite for the second night. "Easily" didn't turn out to be the right word. We had to clear out of our first room at noon, and were assured that the staff would handle getting all of our stuff to the second room in a timely manner. However, apparently the people staying in our new room refused to vacate on time, and the hotel wouldn't do anything about it. We were stuck in limbo without a room for 4 hours, with our stuff sitting locked up in guest services. Thank goodness for the pool, but I did get a sunburn in the process because we ended up waiting so long. When we finally got into our new room, our belongings had not arrived yet, and we basically had to wait around and waste a significant portion of our day waiting to get into our new room and get our stuff back. We had to call the desk 3 times after we finally got into our new suite to try and get them to give our belongings back. The front desk woman even referred to my husband on the phone by my former last name...embarrassing. We really felt like just an insignificant number to the hotel staff, despite having spent a significant amount of money to have our wedding at Lansdowne.

Overall, if you are looking for a place that's basically a one-stop shop for your wedding, this is a great place. We planned our wedding from out of town, and having everything offered in one place was definitely a plus. Just expect some issues with the hotel. However, the wedding services we received (especially having Renee) definitely made up for most of the headaches with the hotel itself. Not to mention, it's simply a beautiful location. I'm going to plug Renee one more time just because she deserves it for all her hard work...she is amazing.

We had a great experience at the Lansdowne. The Clubhouse ballroom was beautiful and the food was great. The family enjoyed breakfasts in the hotel, walking around the grounds, and the pool all weekend. My only complaint was that it was expensive, and different aspects (gratuity already added for food and the resort fee for the rooms) seemed like extra costs that at the time were unexpected. But, in the end we had a wonderful wedding weekend.

Lindsay Forseth was our day-of coordinator and did a great job. Everything went off beautifully. Also they were flexible enough to to add 5 extra guests last minute and start the cocktail hour 30 minutes early (our ceremony was shorter than we originally estimated).

Before the day of the reception, she was incredibly responsive, dealing kindly with every little problem we threw her way. The food was incredible (a big selling feature at our wedding!), the cake looked amazing, the room was decorated impeccably and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

Renee Russell was instrumental in our wedding day going off with very few hitches! She had picked up where our original planner left off without a hitch. She was incredibly responsive and I would gladly work with her again.

Going down the list:

QoS - Was pretty amazing. I really felt that Lansdowne tried to cater to our needs.

Responsiveness - Renee was extremely responsive, she would respond to our long emails within an hour! Other staff at Lansdowne was not as responsive.

Professionalism - Not much to say other than Perfect

Value - Everything was beautiful, and the food is excellent!

Flexibility - This is my only qualm. Lansdowne was "difficult" (not too bad) to work with in regards to hotel room booking, having everyone's meal selections way in advance. We didn't find out until before the wedding that it is okay to add to the order, but subtracting was impossible. Knowing this would of made things easier for us, as some of our relatives have difficulties traveling.

Lindsay at Lansdowne is wonderful! She was helpful, attentive, and extremely organized. Lansdowne was an amazing place to get married, it is so picturesque and the rooms are incredible. It was very expensive, but looking back now it was really worth the money, I didn't have to think of a thing.

Lansdowne Resort was a wonderful, luxurious place to hold our wedding ceremony and reception. It is a beautiful setting and the staff is excellent. We were delighted with our accomodations in the bridal suite--a HUGE room with adjoining sitting room. The food is phenomenal and the cake was gorgeous. We looked at other sites and found that theywere just as expensive and not nearly as nice.

Without a doubt I am so happy we had our wedding at Lansdowne. We got married outside and then had our reception in the clubhouse. All of our guests told us how beautiful the place was, and I agree. Perfect backdrop for our photos!

We did however, have some problems along the way. When we booked the site for our desired date we were told we could wait to "block rooms". 6 months before the wedding I got back to them and they said NO rooms were free--they were all booked up the night of my wedding! I was pissed to say the least because I had tried to handle this in advance. I must say Lansdowne did work us though, and opened up some rooms and everything turned out fine--but only after things got a little nasty.

When we had our first tasting, someone gave the chef the wrong event order and we ended up trying another couple's food. Its not that it wasnt nice to try more food (we actually ended up keeping one of their entrees we liked it so much) its just that it was a pain in the a$$ to get out to Lansdowne for another tasting...and it just went to show that someone was letting things fall through the cracks. Also, I would have thought that after the whole fiasco with the room block that Lansdowne would have been extra careful not to mess up any other things for us.

Another "problem" was that I was a little upset I was told by Lansdowne that I would be the only wedding there on my day and when it came my wedding weekend it turns out I wasnt the only wedding. Its not that I thought I SHOULD be (obviously I cant control that), I just wanted to make sure things would run smoothly with double the parties. To be fair, I must say the "actual" wedding wasnt held there, just reception (and all their guests) but I was upset that I was told point blankly "No", there is "No other wedding" when someone should have said just that..."well no, no other wedding technically but yes their guests will be staying here, and yes they will be having receptions the night before your wedding, the night of your wedding and the next morning as well." The fact that my guests kept bumping into theirs was a little annoying, but worst of all I felt blindsighted. Of course I wasnt going to let it affect MY day, but after everything that had happened (the rooms, the tasting) this whole fiasco made me feel like Lansdowne was being shady. For that reason, I think their professionalism was not 5 stars.

I dont want to just come on here and write all the bad things, so I want to end the review by saying the day of the wedding was perfect. We could not have been happier. Lansdowne made sure everything went entirely smoothly, and for that I say you get value for what youre paying. Perhaps it took all these problems along the way to make sure the actual wedding day was what we wanted!?

Had my 20's-influenced wedding take place at Lansdowne's Clubhouse Ballroom. Beautiful space and very attentive event staff. There were a few small hiccups with billing but was immediately corrected once it was brought to Lansdowne's attention. The venue itself was a bit expensive but completely worth the price given the amount of hoops the staff is willing to leap through to make sure you get the most positive experience possible.

Unfortunately we did not have a great planning experience with Lansdowne. If my husband had not attended a work conference at the resort, we would have demanded our money back and found a different venue. Because of his previous experience, we were positive the day of the event would be amazing and stuck to it even though it was miserable at times. However, if I were to do it again, I would have probably asked for a different catering manager earlier on or just walked away.

We were sold on Lansdowne when we realized we would have the same manager throughout our whole event and even the day of the wedding. Unfortunately she quit two weeks before our wedding and we were handed off to a different manager, Leslie. Ironically if we had had Leslie for the whole planning process, we are confident it would have been a better experience. Leslie was great for the short time we had her as our manager. I would highly recommend asking for her if you plan on going to see the resort. She helped make our rehearsal dinner and wedding day amazing! Our pictures came out fantastic. The grounds are beautiful!

We got married on the Pavilion Terrace (not the Bridal Terrace) because it was already occupied, but I actually liked our location better. Our cocktail hour was on the ballroom terrace and our reception was in the ballroom because we were too big for the clubhouse. The staff was great! Everyone RAVED about the food!

I would recommend Lansdowne Resort as a wedding venue. Just make sure you enjoy working with your manager and enjoy the experience. I unfortunately did not enjoy my planning process, but the day of our wedding went off without a hitch!

It was a long road of planning with our venue, having booked the venue about a year out from the wedding. We did have each of our two assigned coordinators leave throughout the process and a few hiccups along the way, however, Lansdowne delivered beautifully for our wedding weekend. The food, service, and catering staff executed our event so smoothly and really went above and beyond to fulfill our requests. We did have some errors in billing that resulted in an overcharge on the final bill. Luckily my close review caught it and the resort has agreed to credit me the difference. In planning and paying, just pay close attention to details. Also, we wound up paying for extra servers, as the resort provides 1 server for 2 tables at the wedding. While this seems to be standard for catering venues, we wanted to ensure service would be impeccable at the wedding. This was a cost we didn't anticipate originally. Also, for lighting and our band, we needed to pay for extra power.

This was a beautiful place for a wedding and I certainly have no complaints. I wish it was a little cheaper, I was lucky to have a bigger budget than my friends have had but not sure how many I could recommend this venue to because of the cost. I loved everything about my day there and think it is a great place to get married.

The venue was beautiful and they were very flexible to our needs. It ended up raining the evening of the reception and they didn't have any umbrellas or golf cart etc to provide shelter when walking back to the main hotel. Other than that the coordinator was awesome to work with. She was professional and full of suggestions and ideas. The food was really good and they were good about changing menu items around a bit.

Overall, I would recommend using Lansdowne Resort!

It's pricy but we booked this venue because of the combination of good food and beautiful view of the resort. The white glove staff on the day of was nice and professional.
There's some frustration due to slack of responsiveness. We had some difficulty getting in touch with the Catering/Venue Manager. But it all went well at the end.
If you have a big wedding budget and can deal with medium high level of stress, this is a nice place to get married.
