THE ONLY KENAI WEDDING VENUE TO SAY VOWS DIRECTLY ON THE RIVER BANK….

2023 Wedding Prices

     Wedding Packages are 3 nights or 4 nights (not including Peak fishing season)

We are just a private rental with a wonderful spot on the river for weddings. We are not a wedding service. Just a private vacation rental with SEVERAL FREE items for you to use!  (Like tables and chairs and a revolving door of cool decorations that grow and grow and grow with each wedding).
*Sometimes a 4th night is available for free but not all packages have the 4th night free. Most weekDay wedding packages are 4 nights. Most weekEnd wedding packages are 3 nights. “Package” just means a discount and use of our freebies.
**AK residents get $1000 discount STILL it’s just included in the price already!! Out of staters just add $1,000. We are trying to make the contract easier for your sake!
Cleaning fee is included in price this time too
Lodging included for 20-25 people
Tables and chairs up to 150 guests
Free wedding decor also available throughout lodge and in wedding decor room and you can move any thing you want around including real or fake flowers to please yourself for your wedding. Please return all items where you found them as the next bride is just as important!!
Many wedding extras included for free as well, like arbors, wooden charges, pallet bar, whisky barrels.
Table place settings provided for under 50 guests or less if you would like to borrow them – again for free-please wash them and set aside after use.
Leave something for the next bride policy.  It’s just for fun for you to give back if you want – no charge to use items (optional!) but please put back how you found these. That’s my deal if you want to use them.

Alaska resident pricing includes discount below (out of staters add $1000)

50% of the total is due upon booking to secure your dates for your wedding, and the remaining 50% balance is due six months prior to the wedding date.

We decided to add an OPTION to help you SAVE MONEY if you want to on your cleaning fee!  This is only offered to certain months for our weddings ONLY and it’s JUST to help you save money but again ….it is an option!!  This is offered for ALL months EXCEPT June, July, & August. It’s our Economical Wedding Months security deposit/cleaning fee option: it is $1,000 and it is due before arrival only through Venmo or paypal or a check but it’s to possibly get some of this money refunded to you if the lodge is clean upon check-out (details are on your contract). Levels of cleanliness will reflect your refund amount and varies depending on how much is completed on the list as well as if the rules of the property were followed. All rules must be kept in compliance on that contract, such as no person being fined for fishing without a fishing license on our property, or nothing being left on the grounds after check-out like rose petals or rental company items. And a few more rules.  We encourage you to do anything that makes you happy, as long as it’s picked up, put back, removed from lawn, and no damage done.  And bonus, if the lodge is 100% ready for the next rental, you get your full refund back.
