Dream Wedding Came True...Reviewed on 5/03/2012 Kathleen R
The Lodge was a wonderful place to have a wedding, the outdoor wedding garden is just beautiful, you can't go wrong with this area for your wedding. We had our wedding there, then headed across the way and went to our reception after a bunch of pictures and more pictures. It was perfect, the lodge is nice and open, perfect for pictures. Food was great and the nice part about being at a hotel is that we didn't have to worry about our friends drinking and driving because they could just get a room at a very reasonable rate. The bar had a nice band and after the reception we changed clothes and hung out with our friends there. If you are looking for a reasonably priced wedding package with great people to work with this is the place to go. Oh and the bridal suite was AWESOME! Finally if you book here try the coconut shrimp.
Review for Los Gatos LodgeReviewed on 5/10/2010 Gloria V
It was a package deal including flowers, ceremony site, food, and cake. The bar was an add-on. A weddding coodinator was included, as well as a suite for the couple and a dressing room for the wedding party. In the foothills of Los Gatos California. There seemed to be very little for me to do, other than taking care of the wedding party and ourselves. Very easy.;Be in clear and constant communication with coordinators. Keep them informed of any jump or drop in attendance, as that changes the rooms you'd need.
Review for Los Gatos LodgeReviewed on 5/10/2010 Teri C
we had a summer wedding and the since I had a 5 year old daughter at the time we married we wanted to have a bounce house. The Los Gatos Lodge let us have a castle bounce house! My husband loves sports and the lodge has large grass areas were we had croquet set up, they have a small green with a golf hole, so we set up a little golf area, we also had a ping pong table, kids craft table and there is a built in bocce ball court. And the Lodge has a big outdoor white tent top where all the round tables were set up for dinner. They even let us bring in a snow cone machine. All the guests enjoyed all the activities.;I didn't care for the chairs they had but they allowed me to rent chairs more to my taste and to bring those in. They even set they up for me.
