Winter View Lodge
41403 22nd Ave E, Eatonville, WA 98328
As guests drive through the main gate to Winter View Lodge, they will be able to catch a glimpse of Mt. Rainier through the tree-lined driveway. Rustic touches are featured throughout the property from the main entrance gate down to the interior decor. The exterior of the lodge itself and the surrounding wooded areas make a perfect backdrop for photos.
Wedding ceremonies and receptions are held outdoors on the back lawn of Winter View Lodge. Rentals can span the weekend so there is no rush to set up/clean up and you do not have to share your weekend with any other weddings. There is a bridal suite inside the lodge for the bride and her team to prepare for the big day. The groom and his crew also have a separate suite to prepare for the ceremony.
A stone-lined path leads from the exterior door of the bridal suite all the way to the ceremony arbor that overlooks the mountain and the valley. The ceremony area features rustic wood benches for guest seating.
The back patio makes for a great elevated location for a DJ or band to assemble and a wooden dance floor can be added on the lawn below. The expansive lawn has plenty of space for tables and chairs, tents, lawn games, a buffet line or a food truck, a bar, and more. There is also a built-in fire pit for added ambiance.
There is on site parking available for about 70 vehicles and 4-5 dry camping spaces for trailers if needed for guests traveling from long distances or wedding party members choosing to stay overnight. The lodge features a bedroom attached to the bridal suite for the bride/groom shall they decide to stay overnight on the wedding eve or the wedding night. There is also an additional guest room inside the lodge for the groom or wedding party member(s).
