"Mr. and Mrs. Orlando,
We would just like to thank you for the wonderful hospitality and service we received while staying at your lodge. We stayed there on our wedding night, March 5th, 2011. Your lodge is absolutely beautiful and it made our wedding day complete. We would also like to thank you for allowing us to have some of our pictures taken inside. The lodge fits our personalities and it made for a spectacular backdrop in our pictures. We can't thank you enough for everything, especially brunch the next morning! The food was amazing! We will be sure to highly recommend your lodge to anyone we can. We hope to be back soon and definitely for our one year anniversary! Your lodge will always be special to us. Thank you again!"

Wedding Reception, May 2010
"Jim Helton and all of the staff at the Lodge at Grant's Trail,
We wanted to thank you all for making our wedding absolutely beautiful. It was everything we imagined and our guests couldn't stop talking about how perfect the Lodge was for us and our wedding. The staff was phenomenal and we appreciate everything you did, from helping us with the cake to keeping everyone calm and relaxed. You truly treated us like family and you are all beautiful people.
The Mary Lincoln room was perfect for our wedding night and our breakfast the next day was delicious. If we didn't live just 5 minutes from the Lodge we would stay there again, although, we will continue to occasionally make you part of our Sunday breakfasts. We look forward to weekends that we plan on visiting the Lodge at Grant's Trail. Thank you again for the memories!"
"Orlando's we are so happy that we have the opportunity to have your staff in our lives throughout this whole process and on our rehearsal dinner. You would not believe how many compliments we have received from each of our guests on how great everything went, how nice it was, and of course the food. Our entire group truly enjoyed the company of the staff and being able to walk around and take in the great surroundings. Every staff member did a great job, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Lodge at Grant's Trail, and will continue to recommend you to everyone. "
A visitor's review on Associated Content said:
"While recently rolling through St. Louis, my wife and I were fortunate enough to stay with the wonderful folks at The Lodge at Grant's Trail. The Lodge at Grant's Trail is something of an auspicious creation; just off the highway on a broken road, folks can get lost if they go to the wrong spot. Make sure you've made your directions, checked them twice, and programmed the Lodge at Grant's Trail's phone number into your contacts, else you could be like my dear wife and I and at a dead end location of a residential neighborhood. Nevertheless, no problems with that as we did end up in the right in the end." (read more)
Regarding weddings at Lodge at Grants Trail, a visitor's review on Associated Content said:
"If you are looking to have a wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or other family fete and you want to have that combination of night-at-Grandma's and elegant banquet hall all rolled into one then look no further than The Lodge at Grant's Trail by Orlando's. Just a few minutes from the Gateway to the West arch in St. Louis, Missouri off of I-55 you will come across a large log cabin on a great piece of land. The cabin is The Lodge at Grant's Trail by Orlando's and is the more homey location of Orlando's banquet facility. Here you get all the elegance that you desire of a buffet dinner for 80 with the great touches that Jan Orlando has added to the home such as themed bathrooms and a brilliant elk horn chandelier."
