We held our ceremony outside by their lake and it was like a fairytale! We had gorgeous 70 degree weather and even had a horse and carriage bring me around the lake to the ceremony! Our coordinator, Erica, was there to answer our every question and bring us whatever we wanted! The pictures around the lake and woods were phenomenal! The ceremony was held in their banquet hall which is so romantic with its exposed beams and dimmed lights! We also EXTREMELY enjoyed the cabin we got to stay in for our wedding night and the free couples massage the next morning!

I can't thank the staff at The Lodges at Gettysburg for the wonderful service we received. I would recommend this to any bride who is looking for a fabulous place to get married! They go above and beyond to make sure that the wedding goes over smoothly and they take care of it all!

Where do I start....The lodge is the perfect place to have your wedding,b/w the beautiful outdoor ceremony site and gorgeous reception area inside. I couldn't have asked for a better place to hold my wedding. Beth, the wedding coordinator was wonderful. She is so helpful, while answer every question you have and very flexible in meeting times (my groom travels a lot for work).
My vision for our wedding was country, classic and simple with small touches of our personality. That was exactly how our wedding turned out. I didn't have to decorate much since the reception area had the country look.
The ceremony I wanted it outside ( we were long to have a beautiful day in the middle of Aug.) with nature being the main focus so i had very little flowers.
Also lodges have an unque option that no other place I looked at had. We were able to rent a horse and carriage to drive me & my dad around the pond & up to the ceremony site. Then after the ceremony my new husband and I were able to ride around in the carriage. Also we got bridal party pictures with it. This was a great photo prop and made our wedding stand out in our guests minds. Since no one knew we were having a horse and carriage.
Over all I have nothing bad to say about the lodge. There prices are cheaper than any place I looked at in Frederick MD (where we live).
I think you would be silly to have your wedding (ceremony and reception) anywhere else but the lodges.
FYI if you pick the package the bride and groom get to stay in one of the lodges on their first night.

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at The Lodges at Gettysburg on 5/17/13 and everything was absolutely perfect. Our coordinator, Beth, was wonderful throughout the whole process. She promptly responded to all of our questions and concerns. She was also present on the day of our wedding, which made everything run so smoothly. We received many comments from our guests, praising how smoothly the reception ran and how wonderful the food was. They were impressed by the flow of events during the reception and the lack of down time while waiting for the next event to occur. We've even had guests tell us it was the best wedding they've ever been to for those reasons and also for the pure beauty of the site and its surroundings. The Lodges definitely has some of the best views around and our wedding pictures turned out gorgeous due to the lovely scenery. The only issue some of our guests experienced was with the front desk when calling to make a reservation to stay at The Lodges. If a call was made to make a reservation and there was no answer, a message could be left on the answer machine; however, calls were never returned. My husband and I (and some of our guests) left messages, requesting a return call, but the call was never returned. Our guests were also quoted various different rates for the same lodge and told they had to stay a minimum of 2 nights. We discussed our concerns with Beth, who immediately addressed these issues and verified our guests were charged the correct rate. The Lodges is a wonderful place to get married and I wouldn't change a thing.

We were so pleased with The Lodges at Gettysburg for our daughter's wedding. Beth, our wedding coordinator, was fantastic to work with. Our daughter and son-in-law were able to have the outdoor ceremony by the lake that they had hoped for, which was absolutely beautiful! The reception could not have been any better. The food was delicious and the presentation of it was amazing, as was the cake. The staff members worked very hard that night to make sure everything was just perfect for us. We received many compliments throughout the night about the food, the great location and the scenery outside of the venue. We stayed in the lodges, that were a short walk behind the venue, which was very convenient for us and our guests, that were very comfortable. Would highly recommend The Lodges at Gettysburg!

We had both our ceremony and our reception at the Lodges and I couldn't have been happier! The hubby is from central PA but my family traveled from all parts-NY, ME, TX, VA, MD-so we needed a location that had places for people to stay and didn't required traveling more then they already had to just to get to the wedding. For my work I go to many conferences and when we looked into weddings at hotels all I could think of was conference and work related functions and I didn't want to feel that on my wedding day. When we first visited the Lodges we knew that this was the place-we loved the style, the class and the outstanding service. The weather held and we were able to have an outdoor ceremony as well as appetizers and cocktail hour outside. The reception was beautiful and everybody enjoyed the night. The only one thing i heard people talk about was getting to the outdoor ceremony site was tricky because of the heels and grass predicament. I am sure this is something the Lodges will improve on the future and a golf cart is an easy fix. All in all a 150% satisfied wed family!

-----What a beautiful place to spend one of the best days of your life! Not to mention one location which offers a ceremony site, reception venue, catering, and modern lodging overlooking historic battlefields. As soon as we arrived on site, we knew The Lodges at Gettysburg was where we wanted to get married. The location is rural and just outside of Gettysburg, but as soon as you are there you do not want leave. Our guests felt the same way! We had many out of town guests who were impressed with their lodges and the courteous and attentive staff members. We even had a chance to relax before the big day as we had a bonfire with the bridal party and family members by the lake the night before the wedding.
-----One source of stress that I did not have to worry about on the wedding day was transportation. Literally everything (hair and makeup included) was available on site. A family member grew the flowers for our reception, and The Lodges allowed us to and helped us store the flowers while we were staying there. One staff member even drove my aunts around on a golf cart to collect some extra flowers for the tables!
-----The ceremony site is lakeside and beautiful, and there are a few intimate indoor options as well. The ballroom has great natural light, wooden beams, and beauty in its simplicity, yet it is full of potential for an elaborate celebration as well . Many of our guests complimented that there were several places to spend time during the reception: the dance floor, bar area, covered porch, loft overlooking the ballroom (we had a photo booth there) yet the entire space does not feel divided.
-----The event coordinator, Beth, was fantastic to work with throughout the entire planning process. She is open to many ideas and very enthusiastic, and she makes sure the day is exactly what you want it to be. It did rain on our wedding day, and we had to move our ceremony indoors, which came together perfectly in a matter of hours. Beth and all of the staff members worked so well with all of our vendors to make sure things ran smoothly, and we were still able to get beautiful pictures outside after the ceremony. What an incredible view of the sunset and a rainbow over Gettysburg during dinner too! The night did not have to stop there (again not having to worry about transportation) we walked back to our lodges and continued to celebrate with family and friends. It was truly a memorable weekend and even better than we could have imagined.
We absolutely recommend The Lodges at Gettysburg for your wedding day!

My fiance and I came across The Lodges of Gettysburg on Wedding Wire when they first opened. We immediately booked a meeting to see what it was all about. The venue is gorgeous and Beth was extremely helpful. Not only does she have all of the information about the venue, but she is the catering manager as well which really helps when you are trying to coordinate! The staff the day of our wedding was so helpful and accommodating. They were available to drive us in a golf cart with our photographers around the property, box up our extra cake, or even help us light the bonfire at the end of the night. We were more than impressed with the level of service. Our family also took advantage of the hotel rooms on site, and they were just beautiful as well. We stayed in the honeymoon suite and had breakfast and massages the next morning. So so glad we chose this venue and will recommend to all of our friends!

My wedding at The Lodges at Gettysburg was amazing! The venue itself is very beautiful and it continues to improve. There is plenty of space for guests to enjoy all of the countryside and it is close enough to the center of town for out-of-town guests to enjoy visiting Gettysburg. Beth, the wedding coordinator, was so accommodating, kind, and responsive! This venue went way above and beyond for the wedding and it showed! I would recommend The Lodges at Gettysburg to any bride!

The Lodges at Gettysburg was a wonderful place to kick off our honeymoon. We had our own individual lodge--almost a cabin--that included a beautiful bathroom with a walk-in slate shower, a nice kitchen, a big comfy bed, and views out our back porch that were absolutely spectacular. We were so impressed with our stay that we're talking about going back every summer for our anniversary. The staff was very friendly, and our stay included a small breakfast bar in the morning. We couldn't have been more pleased with this choice!
