Rental/Site Fee for Majestic Valley Wilderness Lodge for Weddings
A $5,500 non refundable, non transferable site fee is required to book your event. In addition, all rooms and cabins must be booked for at least two nights. You may elect to pay for all the rooms, some rooms, or have your guests pay for their rooms. Please indicate how you wish to set that up upon holding your date. Other scenarios may incur additional fees.
In addition to the site fee, a $1000 security deposit is required to hold your date.
The deposit will be returned to you after the event if no damages have been incurred and the predetermined held rooms have been paid. Excessive and exorbitant messes or damage may result in a portion of the deposit not being returned to the wedding party. Final payment is due before departure. Security deposits and payments may be local check, cash, Visa or Mastercard.
All meals must be catered by Majestic Vally Lodge during your wedding weekend. We offer a wide variety of options to fit every budget!

Parties may elect to rent linen at their own expense if another color beside white, what we provide, is desired.
