When choosing a wedding venue, it is important that they are one thing: Consistent. The Timberlake Lodge definitely fits this. They are consistent.
Consistently customer-service based.
Consistently evolving based on the needs of their guests.
Located in the southeast end of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, this venue provides brides and grooms with many of the amenities one would only hope to find. Not only is the location perfect for any out-of-towners (all the finer things about Grand Rapids are right in the neighborhood–a brewery, a locally own coffee shop, a salon and spa, dining options, and Target), but the on-site facility is itself an attraction (this hotel is the home to the Grand Splash waterslide). Your guests will be more than happy to call this 84-room property home for the duration of your celebration.
While it is a treat to be a guest of the lodge, it is an absolute experience to be one of their brides and grooms. Their wedding packages include so many amazing things: An included wedding suite, state of the art sound systems, linens in a variety of colors to match any couples vision, and complimentary breakfast in the Grand Central Cafe for any of the overnight wedding guests of the hotel. On top of all of this, the Timberlake Hotel also provides an onsite event coordinator to assist in any way with planning. Their packages range from all-inclusive to a la carte, so anyone can plan any event with this space.
While the add-ons of any Timberlake Lodge wedding package could take up the bulk of this post, an area this venue truly shines is with their chefs and kitchen staff. The food from this place is second-to-none. Personally I have been to this venue several times for several different reasons, and it never ceases to impress; from their pizza to salads to their jaw-droppingly good pasta, the chefs of Timberlake Lodge know exactly what they are doing. They even offer add-ons for your event, such as an ice cream sundae bar, candy station, or even a fiesta break where chips, salsa, and hummus are wheeled out guests to enjoy.
Their dance floor is pretty epic, too.
Iif their customer service and offerings weren’t enough, the Timberlake Lodge is also always changing, adding, and evolving to provide only the best of the best for their brides and grooms. A recent addition to their wedding offerings is their Chapel in the Pines outdoor ceremony space. This little secluded area of land on the property is ready for any couple who wishes to say “I do” in nature amongst epic tall trees. They are also very creative when it comes to the logistical challenges 2020 has offered; instead of simply cancelling and rescheduling, they provided a tent and a space for couples impacted by coronavirus to still host their wedding celebration. They will do anything to help you have the day of your dreams.
