We were married at the Long Beach Lodge on Sept 16th, 2012 and we cannot begin to express how amazing our experience was there. The location, accommodations, cuisine and the fabulous staff made our stay and our wedding truly unforgettable.
Caitlin, the LBL wedding coordinator, is such a gem. She answered our countless emails/questions leading up to the wedding day with efficiency and professionalism and totally took care of every little detail on the actual day. Our servers/bartenders for our event, Mike and Jesse, made our event even better. They were super professional and gave us such amazing service...our guests were so impressed and have since mentioned how awesome these two guys are and the exceptional level of service they provided. Our expectations were beyond exceeded and these three people have a major part in that.
As for the accommodations - fabulous! Most of our guests stayed in the cottages and we heard nothing but rave reviews. They loved the amount of space, private hot tub, access to a full kitchen (the BBQ was a big hit too), and the retreat-like vibe of the cottages. We stayed in one of the Deluxe Beach Front (pet friendly) rooms and loved the convenience to the beach and falling asleep to the sound of the ocean every night....so magical.
The food - again lovely. The halibut and rib eye that we had for the wedding meal were cooked perfectly...we had some foodies and a chef among our guests and they all were very happy with the meal and mentioned the proteins were cooked extremely well. The chef was super accommodating with our wedding menu and even created an extra course as per our request. We did dine in the Great Room on two other occasions during our stay and thought the food was amazing...we appreciated the sushi chef and menu...delicious!
We are so thankful to the Long Beach Lodge Resort for the truly incredible experience. Obviously we will be back!
