Over the last fifteen years, we have developed close relationships with other small businesses in the area that take the same care for each and every detail as we do. In planning your event, we would be more than happy to refer you to our favorite florists, photographers, musicians, local wineries and breweries, masseurs and more, who know the Savage River Lodge style to complete your vision. Naturally, we know who to go to for an exquisite cake or perfectly executed filet mignon, and we even have two registered officiants on staff.
Most brides have their wedding venue picked well in advance, but have you thought about the rest of it? The bridal shower, bachelorette party and even getting ready on your big day? We can help your ideas come to life. From a plated dinner or buffet-style, to just dessert and coffee or a Champagne brunch, our celebrations coordinators will work with you to plan the perfect shower. If you're looking for something more low-key for your bachelorette party, consider us as well. We can provide luxury accommodations, a fabulous meal and keep the bubbly flowing all night. Have a wine tasting, paint party, or yoga class with your closest girlfriends - we'll take care of it!
Our Library Room is the perfect facility for the rehearsal dinner. Once again, we'll work with you to plan your meal; you can party as long as you like, then head up to the cabins for a restful night of sleep. The next day, have your hair and make-up team come to us, we can bring a light brunch up to your cabin while you get ready and send you and your wedding party on your way to the main event. Afterwards, spend your first newly wedded night with us, before jet-setting off to your honeymoon.
And we can't forget the groom! What's more relaxing than a day spent fly fishing with your groomsmen, or on a boat Deep Creek Lake with a few coolers of beer (and our own Mike as your driver) for the groom's bachelor party? After a day spent on the water, come back to our gourmet restaurant for a great meal, more libations and stay in our luxury accommodations.
We would love to learn more about the special event you are planning and how we can help make your dream a reality!
