Deborah V, Wedding Wire
“We recently had our wedding at Tailwater and couldn’t be happier. Everything from start to finish was beyond what we could have hoped for. The wedding coordinator, staff, hotel staff, food, beverage, etc. were top notch. There was not one point during the process where we did not feel like the only wedding they had that year. We would highly recommend them to any couple looking for an incredible venue will all of the amenities and in a setting you just can’t beat! Thank you again for making our day so great!”

Kay W, The Knot

“Words cannot describe how incredible our wedding at the Tailwater Lodge was. From the gorgeous rustic beams that line the reception hall, to the intricate lighting of the tasting room and the convenience of on-site lodging, the Tailwater was our first and only wedding venue we visited. Michele was outstanding throughout the entire planning process. Her professionalism is unmatched. She was attentive, organized and extremely responsive. Ryan (the man!), Ann and Margot helped to transform our vision into reality. No task was too much to ask. They were extremely efficient, professional and helped to make our entire day feel like an absolute dream. From the minute details of remembering what drink the bride/groom would like and always having one ready, to ending the night with a surprise bottle of champagne and homemade rosemary bacon popcorn delivered to our room, and everything in between, we cannot say enough about the Tailwater. Guests continue to talk about their wedding meals. We are forever grateful for the Tailwater Lodge staff, wedding staff and entire team who helped to make 8/12 a day we will never forget.”

Megan T, The Knot

“I cannot recommend this venue enough! It was the absolute perfect vision of upscale rustic, and the ability to fulfill that vision in a hotel (aka no transportation worries!) was a dream come true. The wedding coordinator Michele was amazing to work with from our first visit to the big day and every event in between. They found a way to say yes to every request and every person at the venue was so so kind. I can’t recommend enough!”
