    Lizard Creek Lodge turned out to be an amazing venue for our wedding. We wanted to have a wedding that would facilitate a weekend with family and friends and that's exactly what we got. We chose not to have our outdoor ceremony at Lizard Creek, however they still kept the option open for us to have an indoor ceremony if the weather was miserable (they kept this option open up until 11am the day of). The Event Coordinator was very helpful and thorough in ensuring the reception was set-up the way we wanted it. Bar and food service was great. Our wedding was around 95 people and I would suggest not going much more than that. It was an intimate reception and more than one guest commented on how great everything was. Plus we were able to spend time with people the days before and after the wedding as many people made a weekend holiday out of it.

    We had our wedding October 5, 2013 at Lizard Creek Lodge, in all honesty it was everything we imagined and more!!

    Stacey was such a great help in combination with our wedding planner to ensure the night we hiccup free. They lodge itself is beautiful, rooms were fantastic. We had 135 guests and all stayed at the lodge, we are a month later and everyone is still talking about how amazing the lodge was. Many have already booked vacations over the winter there. The great room really doesn't need much in terms of decorations, as it is already tastefully done and hard to compete with the mountain view.

    The food and beverage team was fantastic as well. Supper was amazing, i was mad with myself the next day for not getting a second serving. Food was excellent. Drinks were poured in an efficient manner and there was an abundance to be had.

    I can honestly say that without the team they have a lizard creek we wouldn't have had a perfect weekend. If your on the fence, jump off and book your event at lizard creek lodge.

    They say that the venue is suitable for up to 150 people, but that would be an extremely tight squeeze, as we had 120 fit QUITE cozily. Otherwise, everything else was absolutely lovely.
