It's Where To Get Married at Lake Tahoe

There are no more distinctive locations for your Lake Tahoe wedding ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner than historic Thunderbird Lodge and THUNDERBIRD yacht. Set amid acres of forested land, the awe-inspiring estate ensures privacy for enchanting celebrations. The underground tunnels, boathouse, sand-covered beach, stunning sunsets, and lakeside grounds create the perfect backdrop for memory-making photographs. Celebrities, sports personalities, and royalty have all exchanged their vows aboard the venerable THUNDERBIRD yacht, an art deco icon from a bygone age.

Each year, Thunderbird Lodge opens to just a few gala Castle-for-a-Day outdoor wedding or rehearsal dinner events for up to 100 attendees (50 attendees indoors). Castle-for-a-Day is for use of the site only and does not include other costs such as catering, planning, furnishings, entertainment, or transportation. Our staff will refer wedding planners and purveyors who can handle every aspect of your special day.

For smaller gatherings having up to 20 attendees without a reception or deliveries, you may rent the estate grounds for up to two hours to craft your own intimate ceremonies, elopements, and photo shoots.
