We decided to go with McMenamins Grand Lodge after searching through many other Oregon venues. We had a projected guest list of 300 and we wanted a venue that could accomodate our guest list. We chose the Willow Grove at the Grand Lodge. We worked very closely with a Sales Coordinator during the entire process! Nikki was amazing and I could write an entire review just about her! She was so amazing and helpful, such a pleasant person to work with through this process! I love the simplicity of choosing a McMenamins venue. They take care of the food and catering, linens, dishes, glassware, silverware, everything! We met the minimum food and beverage amount which meant that we were able to get our space with no additional fees, just food and beverage minimum. We were able to stay within a reasonable budget and did not end up spending an arm and a leg for our wedding. It was a beautiful day and we had zero stress! The only thing that I would recommend is hiring a wedding coordinator to help things run smooth for the day of. We thankfully had a day of coordinator and with a wedding as big as ours, I am so glad that we did! This is a great venue choice if you are looking for simplicity and hassle free!

The Grand Lodge was the first place I called for a venue because I have always loved McMenamins. I thought it would be too expensive but it wasn't and it included an assortment of food and beverages to choose from. We booked The Children's Cottage for the reception and wanted to get married in the Cedar Grove if the weather permitted. The weather was wonderful, we had a plan B if it was not. McMenamins took care of everything from linens/napkins, toast glasses, cake cutting to lights for the ceremony and bench and extension cord for our pianist. We had changed our minds about a couple of the details and Nikki was understanding and supportive of every change. The bartender was awesome and made sure we always had full glasses. Everything from the planning to execution was wonderful. I'd recommend McMenamins to anyone getting married.

Working with McMenamins took the headache out of the whole process. It was so nice to have the space, linens, staff, food, bar, set up and clean up all taken care of at once. The venue and staff, including bartender, are all included in the catering minimum, which was extremely reasonable. Each space has its own sound system you can just plug your computer in to. Best of all, we didn't have to worry about where our guests would be staying and how to transport out-of-town visitors to and from the wedding. They stayed in the Lodge and loved it.

Nikki was my coordinator, she was PERFECT! she gave suggestions, but also embrassed my uniqueness. My wedding day went off without a hitch! It was perfect. Mcmenamins was perfect, we even stayed at the hotel for our first night and the soaking tub was amazing. My experience could not have been better. They took a lot off my plate and it was such a great value!! GO CHECK IT OUT!

We had a lovely wedding at the McMennamin's Grand Lodge in Forest Grove Oregon. We looked at about ten different venues and we were just going to have a small, almost courthouse style ceremony with a dinner at a downtown Portland Hotel but we thought the cost of venues in Portland were very high. Nicole at Grand Lodge made our wedding a stress free pleasure. They know what they are doing and are very efficient. The Compass Room is a beautiful and classy space. It is a great value and the food was great and I am picky about my food. We had prime rib for 28 people and I loved it. The bartender was skilled and when the whole thing was done and we closed down the Compass Room we were able to continue the party and play pool in the bar that is in the basement. We got married on a Monday which may seem unusual but it worked out great and it was like we had the whole estate to ourselves. Room service the next morning was really nice. We couldn't be happier with our choice and we like the idea of being able to go back there and have dinner and reminisce in the future.

McMenamins Grand Lodge was such an amazing venue to get married at! Not only was the space unique and special, every staff member we encountered was so attentive and helpful. From our coordinator (who was phenomenal!!), to our catering captain, to the maintenance staff; everyone did their best to make us feel so special and attend to our every request! I would highly recommend this venue. And the value for the price you pay was absolutely worth it!

Hilary was amazing! She was very organized and patient as we tried to figure out our wedding plans. The day of the wedding everything was ready to go. Shea and Jamaica took care of all of our needs throughout the day. I, as the bride, did not have one stressful moment. It was truly the most stress-free day and I enjoyed every minute of it. The best part was that we did not have to setup or take down anything. I would most definitely recommend the Grand Lodge to anyone planning a big event.

Hilary and the Grand Lodge crew were absolutely amazing. She made sure I got the best bang for my buck, and wasn't afraid to tell us what she did (and didn't) recommend. Our wedding went off without a hitch, or if there was one, I never knew! Hilary was always very responsive to me emails, even the week before the wedding. We had the Delia's Garden space, and it was perfect. It felt secluded even with the lodge still being open to the public. Or at least it felt that way to me!

The value was amazing too! If we hit the (easy) minimum in food/beverages, the venue is included. Easily the best deal we had seen for such a beautiful space. And since it's McMenamins food, you know it's good!

We also had the rehearsal dinner the night before, and had access to the garden for the rehearsal itself.

Even though the space isn't available late (you have to be totally cleared by 10pm), we just took the party to the Dr's Office Bar downstairs, which worked perfectly. The older people got to enjoy the entire wedding, while the younger ones got to party and have fun well into the night.

We would highly recommend the Grand Lodge to anyone. Truly. It was the perfect wedding for us.

My husband and I just held our wedding at the Grand Lodge and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. We had looked around approximately 8 venues, and GL was the best for the value. The peace of mind in knowing they took care of all of the necessities and not having to use a separate vendor for each aspect was a releif. The sales staff was very professional and worked with us to make sure everything was perfect for "our day". The catering manager Christina was awesome and went out of her way several times that day to make us feel like we were the most important couple. They were having multiple events that day, but it never was an issue and we didn't receive any less treatment. The food was great, the venue was amazing. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't make any changes.

The peace of mind in knowing they took care of all of the necessities and not having to use a separate vendor for each aspect was a releif. The sales staff was very professional and worked with us to make sure everything was perfect for "our day". The catering manager Christina was awesome and went out of her way several times that day to make us feel like we were the most important couple. They were having multiple events that day, but it never was an issue and we didn't receive any less treatment. The food was great, the venue was amazing. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't make any changes. Read less

McMenamins Grande Lodge has many different rooms for whatever size ceremony or reception you need. Their prices were amazing, the service exceptional, and the food was perfect.
They were able to give me the room I wanted on the date I wanted. They put up with constant calls and emails from me. I even asked them to measure the windows and the chair heights. The information was emailed to me within and hour.
My family, husband and I, and guests stayed at the lodge for the weekend. The lodge set aside rooms for me and made all of the guests comfortable. Everyone enjoyed themselves.

We had our reception in the Childrens Cottage. At first we thought the split level would be an issue with our guests but everyone loved it. The staff was amazing - they helped us with everything including making a special buffet for our reception so that everyone in the family was happy. When time was running out to decorate on the day of our wedding our cordinator stepped in and helped us finish. Plus she gave me a much needed drink when I was having a melt down! =D Their service EXCEEDED my expectations!

The venue, the team (Nikki!) & the hotel staff, Thank You!!! Everything with the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner at the Iron Works Grill, all 3 rooms, and the suite were fantastic. The ONLY complaint I have is somewhat reasonable. This venue is a moving, live & active place. It is also really old, therefore sleeping is rather impossible. You can hear everything, especially staff moving carts around inside & out at 2am. But otherwise, I'd suggest the suite to anyone, it's a beautiful room to get ready and stay in.

Working with Hilary was quite possibly the easiest part of planning our wedding. She worked with the kitchens to make a whole new menu of food to meet our dietary restrictions. With living far enough away that it wasn't easy to see the venue frequently, she did an awesome job of sending maps and schedules and tons of info via email. Any changes or updates I wanted to make were handled super quickly.
On top of great service, having the wedding ceremony, reception and lodging all in one place couldn't be better in my opinion. It was beautiful, convenient for our guests who mostly came from out-of-town.
The reception did have to stop earlier than some of my guests wanted and they brought the party back to my hotel room (the big king suite), which did not go over too well, so if you want a late, loud party, this may not be the place for you. I have to say, though, that I really loved coming down from our room to have breakfast with family and guests after the wedding.
Our rehearsal dinner was in the Ironwork Grill Patio here too.

The grand lodge was a great place for us to have our ceremony and reception because we had so many out of town guests. Hilary was a huge help in helping us plan where we wanted our ceremony and reception, what kind of food, what vendors they'd had good experiences with, she was great. She also offered up great ideas that helped us stay on budget. They don't charge a location fee as long as you meet a food and beverage minimum, which was reasonable. Great place.

The only issue was we ordered and paid for 2 buffets, they only set up one, we had Grandma going upstairs to get food (no elevator) when there should have been a buffet both upstairs and downstairs- I spoke to someone in catering and they ended up setting up the second buffett within a few minutes, this was something I did not feel like I needed to deal with on my wedding day but it ended up turning out well.

This venue was beautiful place to be married, my family could stay for a reasonable price and there are many things to do (spa, soaking pool, restaurants, pool room/bars, Frisbee golf course). They have a wedding planner and take care of all the details for a very reasonable price. It is a casual environment but also elegant.

I knew I wanted this location for my wedding long before I met my Prince Charming and got a proposal. I loved the look of the lodge. As soon as I was engaged, I booked it! To my surprise, it cost $2,500 for the space. I wasn't expecting to pay quite that much but when I found out that catering was included, I realized what a great deal it was. I picked a buffet style dinner which was great! We were married in the Compass Room which actually looked pretty drab to be honest but still a nice space. We took pictures outside and came back in to the Compass Room for the reception which had been set up in my color scheme by the lodge and looked lovely. All in all, I was happy with my wedding day and the staff at the Lodge were wonderful. My wedding organizer, Hilary, was fab! I would recommend her to anyone!

The only thing I really didn't like about the Lodge was the mandatory 18% gratuity on top of the $2,500 I'd already paid. I would have gladly paid a gratuity anyway because the staff was so awesome, but I'd rather have done it voluntarily.

We selected McMenamins Grand Lodge because we enjoy the McMenamins group of hotels/restaurants as a whole. The Grand Lodge was a good value in comparison to some of the more popular McMenamins in the Portland area.

We, along with our wedding party, and extended family and guests from Wednesday of our wedding week through Sunday. We ate at the IronWork Grill regularly, stayed in a myriad of rooms, and utilized the spa & soaking pool.

The planning of the wedding reception & other events went very smoothly.

Our major issues were actually on the Saturday of the wedding. The main planner from McMenamins that we had been working with worked with another wedding that was held onsite that day. The little details that she knew about it were lost with this new catering & banquet crew. The biggest snafus were (1) they cut the wedding cake slices too big and we ran out of cake. They quickly subbed with chocolate brownies, but not all guests received them. The next day, they tried to charge us for these desserts, even though they told us during the reception that they screwed up & therefore would pay for them. They ultimately corrected this mistake and we were not charged for the chocolate brownies. (2) A case of champagne was unaccounted for. We're not super worried about this, because we brought in Trader Joe's champagne at a whopping $5 per bottle + $10 corkage fee. A $60 loss for us, but whatever. Not a big deal.

The food was great. Sometimes when you eat at a McMenamins, it's average. But all of our wedding food was great. We did order too much food for the cocktail hour, but it was nicely packaged for us to take with/give away the next day.

Overall, a great experience. No, it wasn't a 5 star resort, but we didn't pay 5 star resort prices either. We're very pleased with the result.

I had a wonderful time having my wedding at the Grand Lodge. Many of our bridal party, family and guests stayed out there the weekend of the wedding and we had a great time. Prices were very reasonable but sometimes you got what you paid for.
The event coordinator I worked with there was very helpful and responsive to my needs. They are not flexible in that you cannot bring in your own caterer or alcohol unless you pay a corking fee for the wine.
Occasionally it was difficult to get information regarding certain details of the event and a few of the staff were very rude to my guests. All in all, I highly recommend this very northwest venue!

We loved the all-in-one package that McMenamins Grand Lodge offered - on-site catering, rentals, set-up, bar service, etc. One thing to keep in mind if one is booking at any McMens site during the busy summer months is that there may be other weddings going on, so just plan ahead, especially if your venue is located outside, that there may be other music, etc. going on at the same time. Overall, very satisfied - we'll probably be back so that we can celebrate our 1-year anniversary there next year! =)

We love the Grand Lodge and were really excited to get married there. The event planning staff was really great and helpful, particularly when things were going well. We had a couple of issues come up (mainly around food and contractual concerns) and, though they were very nice, their flexibility and willingness to work with us to problem-solve was a bit disappointing. They have a great system that I imagine runs very smoothly most of the time, but I think that because they do so many events, they may lose some of the flexibility and ability (and willingness) to work with us that smaller venues or smaller catering companies may have. Overall, I would absolutely recommend them, but would also offer a small caution to be aware that there may be some challenges related to being a bigger system with a lot of business.

We were married at Delia's Garden, which is a big outdoor grassy area with trees around the edges. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful location. McMenamins handles all of the rentals and set-up for you, although they were hard to find the day of, but I had a friend helping with set-up, so she handled all of that. Everything went off without a hitch and my guests had a wonderful time! We were able to just partially host the bar, which worked out well, and we did the taco bar for dinner, which was delicious. I recommend McMenamins to anyone, especially if you are on a budget.
