Shenandoah Lodge Named “Best of Weddings 2019” by The Knot

January 3, 2019

LAKE FREDERICK, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2019--The Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club at Trilogy® at Lake Frederick, an exclusive and upscale 55+ lifestyle resort community, has been awarded the “Best of Weddings 2019” by popular website The Knot. This recognition goes to just four percent of wedding venues nationwide, an impressive honor given it’s only the Shenandoah Lodge’s third year of operation.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that all couples married here have a magical and memorable day,” said Barrie Holt, general manager of the Shenandoah Lodge & Athletic Club. “It’s nice to receive recognition of that in such a prestigious list.”

Since opening in 2016, the 36,000-square-foot facility at Trilogy at Lake Frederick, a picturesque community just 90 minutes from Washington, D.C., has proven to be a popular destination for weddings. The lodge, athletic club and restaurant were designed to mainly serve as the social and activity hub of the 55+ community, bringing active-adult residents together with fine food and wine from the greater Virginia region, something that wedding hosts and their guests can enjoy as well.

Designed to reflect traditional Virginia architecture, the Shenandoah Lodge is a state-of-the-art facility with a ballroom that can accommodate as many as 200 guests in addition to an expansive dance floor, an adjoining garden courtyard that can be used by as many as 200 guests as well, and a private suite for members of the wedding party to use before, during and after the ceremony.

Wedding catering is overseen by Scott Bilstad, executive chef of Region’s 117, an on-site farm to-table restaurant at the Shenandoah Lodge which specializes in award-winning American comfort food made with produce and wine from regional sources. Region’s 117 has been named one of the 100 most scenic restaurants and one of the best brunch spots in the U.S. by Open Table.

The lodge overlooks the Shenandoah Valley as well as the 117-acre Lake Frederick, providing a stunning backdrop for any wedding photography. Guests can also gather around a lakeside fire pit in the evening for another memorable experience.

“Beautiful scenery, a modern facility and award-winning regional cuisine,” added Holt. “It’s a combination that’s hard to beat when you’re looking for the perfect wedding location.”
