A Must BOOK Venue! Trust me.

To say that Keefer Lake Lodge made our wedding truly memorable would be an understatement.

I will admit that I've struggled for some time to find the right words that could accurately describe our experience at Keefer Lake Lodge. Nestled on Keefer Lake, Keefer Lake Lodge offers backcountry comfort like no other. The staff not only went above and beyond to meet any needs that we had (bridal emergencies included) but they left us all feeling like a little part of their Keefer Lake family. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience Keefer Lake, it's breathtaking views, or the hospitality and food that the lodge has to offer, you are MISSING OUT! Chef Nick and the team working with him on our wedding weekend, created a menu that will be remembered for years to come. I can honestly admit that I doubt I'll find food (especially pizza) that could live up to the phenomenal dishes we had the pleasure of eating.
My husband and I would also like to extend our never-ending gratitude to Brooke, who helped us make sure that every little wedding detail was what we wanted and took soooo much stress off our shoulders. You are the best.

I can guarantee that if we have the opportunity to experience Keefer Lake Lodge and all it has to offer again, you can count us in!

Perfect place for the perfect wedding

We were the first wedding they hosted and I've gotta say they really nailed it! I was impressed with every single thing they did for us and our guests. Literally everything was perfect...even the weather held out for us! Thanks to the staff once again and to Dave who really helped make this possible!

So amazing!

Keefer Lake Lodge was such a special location to capture our wedding photos. The lodge is in the heart of the Monashee mountain range and located on its own private lake. The breathtaking backdrops provided the most magical spot to capture our wedding photos. We are so happy with how the photos turned out. The lodge is incredible, and our weekend spent there was so peaceful. Our hosts Dave and Jeff Gostlin made us feel at home, and we can鈥檛 wait to go back. The highlight of the weekend was taking photos on a mountaintop, the views were stunning

The most magical wedding venue

I got married at Keefer Lake lodge in the middle of July and have to say that the scenery, the food, the service, the wine and drinks, and the wedding weekend as a whole was absolutely perfect on all accounts. The groom, myself and all the guests stayed for the whole weekend. We were spoiled our entire stay and were blown away by the all aspects. The chef worked with us on creating a great menu for our rehearsal dinner and reception dinner. We also indulged in canap茅s, casual lunch and breakfast. A special touch was having our late night snack be pizzas right out of the wood fire oven beside the dance floor. They were so accommodating to my dietary restrictions and those of my guests, which included gluten free, vegan and nut allergies. The food was hot, delicious and served perfectly. The staff truly customized our wedding weekend to be exactly what we wanted while offering a lot of really great suggestions and ideas that we did not consider already. All the staff are kind, friendly, caring, understanding, and pay attention to the small details. We could not be more grateful to the managers, kitchen staff, the chef, grounds crew, bar tenders, housekeepers, guest relations manager and everyone else who made the weekend flawless. The lodge manners and guest relations managers worked with me every part of the wedding planning process, kept me organized and helped coordinate all the details. The wedding was truly seamless. Not a single thing went wrong and I could not imagine a more perfect day. It was so special to have all my wedding guests stay the night at the lodge and enjoy a farewell breakfast together the next morning. I would highly recommend the lodge as I have nothing but positive things to say about them. The lodge and lake are absolutely beautiful, and allow you to feel isolated from daily life. The weekend felt like a mini vacation for everyone. The rural location brings a sense of peacefulness, serenity and calmness. It has the private aspect I wanted as the whole lodge hosted my wedding only with no outside guests. Grounds were well kept with tons of different locations for photo opportunities. The staff at Keefer Lake worked well with all my other vendors and really cared about my happiness and well being during the wedding weekend. If you are wanting a wedding that is surrounded by nature but feels like a 5 star resort, Keefer Lake Lodge is the wedding venue for you. You will feel like royalty and be spoiled. I highly recommend and can鈥檛 wait to return for family reunions, anniversaries and any other reason I can think of to return to the lodge.
