Bishop's Lodge is absolutely beautiful. My wedding itself was gorgeous with the changing leaves and flowers spread over the entire grounds and the weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding. The wedding itself was great. The wedding coordinator was helpful especially toward the end. My only thing was I wished she'd been more detailed about exactly what she would do and what I was expected to do. More direction at the rehearsal maybe. She was great in all other aspects. I loved her. Their food was spectacular both prior to and at the wedding. THe rooms themselves are very nice but I don't recommend their bottom of the line rooms.
HOWEVER, if you get a room block for you and your guests, beware. Not one thing they told me was done correctly. We went to see rooms and were supposed to sign a contract and no one had any idea about it. The person in charge of the room blocks was NEVER available and multiple others were poor at best at returning phone calls. After we were told our block was ready and told guests they could call, no one could find our room block, we didn't get our link for the block for like a month, guests had to tell me our block was full and needed more rooms when we were supposed to get an email telling us this. My MOH was double charged and instead of taking the charge off was argued with about it and told she had to send them her CC statement for them to remove it. Then couldn't get a call back. At our free couples massage, I wasn't able to get the last spa appointment of the day because we were 'with a group BLOCk' (which still makes no sense to me) and instead of telling me this to begin with was just lied to. They were supposed to book us the entire sunset lodge so we could be a little rowdy and they didn't. THen when I spoke to the manager with all this stuff, I got no discount except an offer for him to buy us dinner - which I then had to go insist that I get as no one knew about it. The communication in the lodge is atrocious. None of it was horrible but after many mistakes I don't think it was worth having my wedding there. If it's only your wedding I recommend it, but if your guests are staying there - I recommend finding somewhere else. It's really too bad because this place has such awesome potential.
Absolutely amazing! I organized everything through them from a distance, through emails and phone calls. It was so easy; I don’t know why people complain that wedding planning is difficult. The wedding and reception were beautiful. My wedding was supposed to be outside at the gazebo, but due to rain it had to be moved inside at the last minute. The transition was super easy, and everything was just as beautiful. It was the wedding of my dreams.
