Erika and the entire staff at Saddleback Mountain were a HUGE part in making our best day ever come true. We highly recommend having Saddleback host your wedding. Erika, Molly and the rest of their support staff are amazing people who seem to actually take a vested interest in your big day. Thank you again to Erika and her team! You guys rock!!
Having our wedding at Saddleback was the best (& easiest) we made. Erika was a dream to work with and made the planning process effortless. Her sense of humor, positivity, knowledge of everything and super speedy responses made me feel like I was planning my wedding with a friend. We had our wedding at the end of September with the ceremony outside looking up the mountain at the ski slopes and the fall foliage that was just starting to appear and cocktail hour outside the on deck to take in the views of the mountain and looking down over Rangeley Lakes and the mountain scape. The reception was in the fireside room in the lodge, we had a sweetheart table right in front of the beautiful fireplace. (beautiful is an understatement). We very comfortably fit 160 guests with plenty of room for the dance floor and had a whole section for the bar, dessert table and photobooth. The food was also incredible. I am a big foodie so having a good menu was very important and the chef’s at Saddleback did not disappoint. (If you haven’t had their crab rangoons- it’s a must try!) I cannot say enough good things about Saddleback and the team that works there. I am so happy they are reopened and are thriving. If I could go back and do it again (which I wish I could do!!) I would do it exactly how we did it.”
“Erika, I can’t thank you and your staff enough for the amazing job you did setting up and preparing the wedding venue to reflect Katie and Rich’s vision. It was perfect and they were beyond happy with the results!! The food was never ending and delicious; the bar staff were professional and courteous, and the wait staff was friendly and efficient!! Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better place to celebrate their special day! Saddleback Mountain provided the perfect backdrop to their wedding, and everything was orchestrated to perfection!!!! Thank you again for organizing the event, and many thanks to your staff!! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Saddleback as a wedding venue!!”
“Rangeley holds a special place in our hearts, so when Jon proposed we knew right away we wanted our day there too! There are so many incredible options but Saddleback truly was perfect for us. Every detail was handled, the food and service was spectacular. Our friends and family tell us to this day, how unforgettable that fantastic evening was! We love Saddleback!”
“My husband and I got married at Our lady of the Lakes and had an AMAZING reception at the lodge afterwards! My grandfather was from Rangeley, so I grew up visiting the area every summer. When my husband and I started dating he began coming to Rangeley with my family and instantly fell in love with the area. When it came time to plan our wedding we had no doubt that Saddleback was the BEST choice for us! Our entire came up from NY (and many other states) for the weekend and still talk about how our wedding was one of the best many of them had ever been to! Best of luck to all the future couples that wish to have their special day up on the mountain! You will not regret it!”
“I could not have imagined a more perfect location for my wedding. We had our ceremony outside of the lodge and our reception was held inside the base lodge. Our wedding was large, almost 200 guests, and we had plenty of room for everyone to sit, eat and dance the night away! Having a coordinator on site made the entire day seamless. The staff was always willing to talk about what I wanted and make this a truly stress free celebration. Saddleback handled the food, drinks, was great to the band and did the full set up and decoration within the lodge. I simply dropped off my decorations the day of the ceremony and they turned the lodge into the perfect magical reception hall for me and my guests to enjoy. I could not recommend this setting more for a wedding. You may even be in luck and have a Moose make a surprise appearance up on the ski trails after the ceremony like we did! It was an absolutely amazing experience from start to finish!”
