The ONLY reason I am giving an "average" overall rating is because WE found a way to make our wedding perfect WITHOUT the help of the lodge staff. My husband and I recently got married at the Harmony Ridge Lodge. We booked our wedding a year ago when the lodge was managed by different staff members who were WONDERFUL. They were super awesome, super helpful, and super nice and mellow. Three weeks before our wedding, two new staff members were hired to replace the old. What a huge mistake that was. It turned out that it rained all three days of the weekend we rented out the lodge for our wedding. A truly difficult situation could not have been made more difficult by Deanna and Billy, the new hosts. They were completely unhelpful and completely rude to my friends and family who were trying to make the best of the situation by making some last minute decisions. We were nothing but respectful and friendly the entire weekend and we were made to feel as though we were intruding in the hosts house (which it is not, they live there to manange the property). Deanna constantly made up new rules and tried to tell me it was in my contract (which I had to show her and none of the rules she specified were in my contract). My mom was doing EVERYTHING to make sure the place was picked up and clean. She was told by Deanna that she had to MOP and VACCUUM the floor (after she cleaned the entire kitchen)! At what business that you rent out for parties anywhere would they make someone do that!? I could go on, but the important fact to know is that the owners of this gorgeous lodge that had perfect staff are going to run themselves out of business with these new caretakers. It is a shame. Our wedding turned out perfect and beautiful despite the rain and Deanna's pessimistic attitude, but I will NEVER recommend them to anyone. If you are thinking about getting married here DON'T...unless you want to work your butt off while the caretakers sit around and complain because they don't have a backup plan or extra staff in case the weather is not as hoped for.
