Venue Spotlight: The Mountain Lodge

With breathtaking mountain scenery, full service facilities and a location just outside of Spokane, The Mountain Lodge is a gold mine for Spokane/Coeur d’ Alene couples. This venue also offers some unique bonuses…like the fact you can stay as late as you want and be as loud as you want, which is very rare! They also don’t charge tax (because they are a non-profit) and you can bring in your own caterer if you wish.

Here’s more info!

What makes your venue unique?

The Mountain is a family run business. We take the time to get to know you and your specific needs, because we want the day to be something that your family and friends cherish in their memories for years to come. We believe in the great importance of family and marriage, and that belief is part of everything that we do. The Lodge and 30+ acres at The Mountain have a history that dates back to 1975, when it was built, and still remains in the family today. It was originally built with the intent to reach out to the community and be a haven and place of peace set in the beauty of nature. Come and bring your guests to a place where the venue becomes a destination of beauty, charm, and mountain views for your special occasion.

Cherish each moment with the one you love, and enjoy one another in the process of planning your wedding. Remember to stay light hearted and make the planning as fun as possible.
