There are no more distinctive location 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 sunset, and all day access to the lakeside grounds creates 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 wedding or rehearsal dinner events for up to 100 attendees on the lakeside lawn, or 50 attendees in our Lighthouse Room. Castle-for-a-Day is for use of the site-only and does not include costs such as catering, planning, furnishings, entertainment, or transportation. Our staff will refer wedding planners and purveyors who then handle every aspect of your special day.
For smaller gatherings of two to 20 attendees without reception or vendor deliveries, rent the estate grounds for up to two hours and craft a unique intimate ceremony, proposal, elopement, or photo shoot.
