The Lodge at the Willows


Located on the beautiful grounds of The Willows and The Gardens, The Lodge is one of the most sought after event spaces on the north side of Indianapolis. The rustic yet shabby chic departure from ordinary event venues will be sure to create an atmosphere that is inviting and captures the thrill guests are seeking!  One of our most unique spaces can be adapted to your specific desires. Wild flowers, lanterns, draping white lights, along with chalkboard menu boards are just some of the incredible event touches our clients have integrated along with our many award-winning chef inspired meals in The Lodge. Guests can enjoy stepping out through the retractable doors to enjoy cocktails and conversation on the lakeside deck. This space lends itself to creating a indoor / outdoor experience that will have your guests talking about your event long after it is over.  

Your guests will be treated to abundant parking upon arrival and will be delighted by the space, our team and the overall experience throughout your entire event. When you choose The Lodge as your event location, you are choosing the very best.

What People Are Saying About

The Willows Lodge

The staff did an outstanding job with our wedding. The service and food was incredible. The entire staff was professional and very attentive. Our guests loved the Lodge. We used the Garden for wedding party photos; the landscaping was meticulous, lush, and beautiful. The pergola provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. I was nervous, but they made it a breeze. Everything turned out perfect, from the decor to the food to the sparkler exit at the end. It was my dream wedding!

Thank you for how you pulled off our daughters' dream wedding. Your staff was excellent and professional. Service, food, accommodations, and surprises!
