Wedding Particulars

Fort Lewis plays host to a limited number of weddings each year. Below is a listing of the primary expenses and services provided by the innkeeper. Perhaps the biggest issue is whether your selected venue "just feels right." We encourage you to visit, walk the grounds, see the Pavilion in person, and meet the innkeepers. Please do! But first, please ask about available dates.

  • Weddings require a two-night booking of the Lodge's 20 guest rooms. This will accommodate 40-50 overnight guests.
  • Reception costs can range between $70-110 pp depending on the number of guests, plated or heavy hor d'oevres, alcoholic beverages, etc.
