Where can you find stunning, sunset lake views, tucked-into-the-forest reception settings and a cozy, homey vibe, all right inside the city limits of Liberty Lake? Zephyr Lodge! They're recently under new management, and took some time to sit down with us and chat about their best advice for couples planning their weddings and what they have to offer brides and grooms.

What makes your venue unique?
Built in 1902, Zephyr Lodge is the last historic building in Liberty Lake. Originally a casino and “roadhouse” and later, a hotel and church owned camp. This historic and iconic property has only seen 3 owners in it’s 115 year life. The beauty of Zephyr Lodge too is that with an abundance of natural landscape, the venue already provides a stunning backdrop for any event.
What is the capacity of your venue?
Outside we have unlimited space and multiple ceremony/reception options. Inside, we can fit up to 200 people, this however depends on each events requirements.
What are your catering guidelines?
You can choose your own catering and use our full restaurant style kitchen.
Do you have a ceremony location?
Outside, we have multiple scenic options which offer views of either the lake, lodge or forest. Inside, we also have a main dining/dance hall which can service as a ceremony location.
What is your advice for couples planning their wedding?
Our best advice would be to choose a venue that feels like coming home, and to plan your wedding akin to the most authentic versions of who you are as individuals, and as a couple.
