Fantastic venue, beautiful lodge setting. However, very over priced and the people running the place(one lady in particular) are very money hungry and not the nicest of people to work with. They charge $9 corkage per bottle and charge you for broken glasses (you would think that would be included in the $3000 hirage fee!) Tried to charge extra for... More

i attended a wedding here in February. it was so beautiful. the house was so charming. the gazebo area for the ceremony was lovely. although the ceremony was very long winded and standing in the hot sun was not a lot of fun. the rest was great after that. reception area decorated wonderfully.

We attended our niece's wedding at the Charlemagne on 4th Feb and absolutely loved the setting, it was so romantic. The small gazebo is lovely for the ceremony but we were disappointed that the celebrant did not hold the microphone high enough to be able to hear properly. It was extremely hot so many of the guests were trying to... More

We stayed at the lodge for the first few days of our honeymoon. We were jetlagged after traveling from Boston, MA, USA and were so grateful to have such a lovely place to relax after our journey. We were the only guests and were bumped up from a smaller room to the largest room. Since we were the only guests... More

Ever wanted to stay in a Victorian mansion, but don't want to pay too much? Then Charlemagne lodge could be for you. It's a bit of an odd "hotel" or B&B as the locale is clearly more of a venue for weddings (so I'm guessing trying to get a room on the weekends would be very difficult), but if you... More

We were lucky enough to have this lovely place all to ourselves the night we stayed. Bev the manager showed us round and told us a little about the place (it looks really old but is only 14 yrs old!!). She also had loads of local information, let us use the washing machine, etc and serves an excellent breakfast. The... More
