WCWL was a dream venue! Perfect place to gather friends and family for a weekend of celebration. From the moment we booked until our wedding weekend everything was so smoothly handled. Communication with the venue is easy and fast, the food was delicious, the views beautiful and and the whole experience one we will forever remember! We were able to fully enjoy every minute of the weekend knowing that WCWL are experts at what they do. We worked with makeup and DJ from their suggested vendor and it was great.
We highly recommend this venue!Sent on 21/10/2019

The WCWL staff were amazing, planning this event was simple and easy. We were able to pick out menu and we even had a few signature drinks that the bartender created just for us. We had the whole patio to ourselves with a view of the beautiful straight. I would definitely suggest this venue to anyone planning a wedding or engagement party.Sent on 18/10/2019

My husband and I had the pleasure of getting married at the WCWL. It did not disappoint. We stayed for a total of 2 nights at the lodge and it was beautiful. Our even coordinator walked us through the whole process as we planned our wedding. She was very helpful with all of the information etc. Everything went as planned and I had not one thing to worry about. The food was spectacular. All of our guests could not stop talking about how amazing the food was. We will definitely be coming back for our honeymoon next year.Sent on 30/09/2019

Beautiful location & great service
We are both from outside of BC but have lived here for nearly 10 years. When we started looking for a venue for our wedding, we were trying to find a location that reflected what we love about BC, somewhere that gave our out-of-province family and friends a taste of BC and our local guests a great weekend.
When we were recommended to check out WCWL we had friends nearby and thought we would go take a look. Pulling in to the parking lot you are faced with a nice rustic looking lodge and well-maintained landscaping, which was nice but we had seen other places with similar looks. Once we walked through reception and into the main dining room with its high ceiling and large windows overlooking the Narrows and mountains and forest, we knew there and then that this was the place for us.
The rest of the tour confirmed it but we were all in already. The patio deck, the dining room the lounge room, the fire pit and dock area, all worked perfectly for what we wanted to achieve.
Genevieve was good to work with and they have great packages for you to choose from depending on what you want to do. Communication leading up to the event was good and over the actual weekend, the staff were amazing and very helpful.
We had ~100 people for our wedding and we held it in June. People arrived on Friday afternoon, we had a welcome BBQ that evening down by the water so all our guests could get to know one another, the ceremony on Saturday afternoon and people left Sunday morning. It fit our group well, with us using the Back Eddy and Bathgate resorts nearby to house the guests that couldn't fit into the WCWL.
The food at both the BBQ and the dinner was delicious with something for everyone.
We did luck out on the weather but I believe it would have been a great weekend even it had rained.
Our guests could not have been happier. We are an active couple so many of our guests are too. Throughout the weekend, many of our guests made use of the next-door boat tours and kayaking, the Skookumchuck Narrows hike, and other activities in the area. What we hoped was that our guests would feel like they had a mini-vacation for themselves and not just attending a wedding. I believe we achieved that.
The photographs we got were amazing as anywhere you pointed a camera there was another stunning vista.
We stayed an additional night to decompress and soak it all in a little and the comment my newly minted partner made summed up the whole experience, "The weekend delivered"
Thank you to all the staff at WCWL. It has made choosing an anniversary trip location, remarkably simple.Sent on 27/10/2019

The WCWL went above and beyond to make our day as smooth and enjoyable as possible. They met all our expectations and more, over-delivering on their promises. The views are breath-taking and make for stunning photographs, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, and our wedding coordinator Genevieve was always at our disposal and promptly answered any of our questions. All of our meals at the lodge as well as the wedding cake were delicious!! We couldn't have been happier with our venue choice!Sent on 24/05/2019
