The rooms are old timey and fun. Cabins in the back and great food in the kitchen. This is really an old school Lodge. I love just hanging out there. I've had a perfect visit every time I went there. I was told they were going to do Weddings only and almost broke my heart. I've been going there for... More

I attended a wedding at the Forest House Lodge recently and was overall very impressed with the entire operation. The hotel is rustic, quaint and adorably appointed. The pre-wedding festivities and the reception dinner following the ceremony were held at the lodge. The wedding was at their nearby "wedding venue site" which was located about a mile from the lodge... More

A step back in time, both literally and figuratively. Non-Stop A-1 customer service. The most beautiful location for the most important of ceremonies. The cool breeze through the trees provided wonderful natural music. Who ever heard of amazingly delicious food in a Buffet, and it never stopped coming. Prime Rib at a wedding, and delivered to perfection. Bartenders who know... More

I recently had the pleasure of accompanying the family that I nanny for to the Forest House Lodge for a wedding they were attending. Children were not welcomed at the ceremony and the reception, and so, I went along to be with the 20-month-old that I nanny. I was very impressed with the lodge, the service, the food, the cleanliness... More

Please don't mistake Forest Hills Lodge as a 5 star resort. However we had the time of our lives at a recent wedding. The staff was great! Much better than some of the recent 5 star places I've stayed. They were down to earth, and very accommodating. The property is historic along with most of the buildings in town. We... More

Where do I start? My daughter got married this past weekend at the Forest House Lodge, and as some of the other reviewers have said, the experience was an absolute dream come true. Since the majority of the bride's family lives out of state, we availed ourselves of the Princess package and stayed from Thursday through Sunday. The main floor... More

I am writing as Mother of the Bride and the Matron of Honor. Having said that, I can say from the first meeting we knew we were in good hands with Brett and Kathryn. I was assured they would take care every last detail and that they did! It was as though we had event planners keeping an eye over... More

We couldn't have found a better location for our daughter's wedding. Bret, Kathryn, and their entire staff completely hit it out of the park. From the first meeting last year to the moment we left , the experience was first class. Everyone involved was professional, friendly, and anticipated every need and wish for all. The feeling was one of friends... More

Hello future brides! If I could title my wedding, and bottle up my experience with the Forest House Lodge ... I would call it "A Dream Come True". I am that girl that has been dreaming of my wedding since I was a little. In fact every Halloween, I asked to be a bride. To me, I wanted my wedding... More
