There is a brand new event venue in nearby Hendricks County that is Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering’s answer to your dreams for a picture-perfect setting for large events. Known as the Lizton Lodge (Lizton, Indiana) this idyllic setting is a 22,000 square feet event venue that exudes class and old-school charm.
Lizton Lodge is an estate from the past, featuring elaborate woodwork, antique chandeliers, majestic oak floored ballrooms, and dignified meeting rooms -- all housed on 100 acres of secluded grounds filled with native hardwoods and magnificent hundred-year-old shade trees.
Because of the vastness of the estate, visitors say Lizton Lodge gives them the feeling of a mountain retreat. The lodge’s spacious indoor facilities perfectly host hundreds of guests while making everyone feel like a visiting dignitary. Guests flow with ease and awe from one space to another.
Jacquie’s Catering team is especially fond of the hardwood floors are shined to an elegant luster, with millwork from another century evocative of the grandest of mansions. Each room is a visit to the past, making guests feel welcome and relaxed. Rooms may be rented individually or as a whole:
White Hall is the perfect space for a wedding or special event, showcasing white shiplap style walls and spectacular chandleliers. The hall has been completely renovated with video screen, portable sound system, wireless microphones, and computer projection capabilities – able to be lit to create a wide range of moods – although from the look of the room, you’d never guess it.
The Lizton Ballroom has native Indiana hardwood covering every inch of the floor, walls and ceiling with 18 windows looking out into the woods and courtyard pool. Capable of seating 100 guests for weddings or presentations, the Ballroom can also be set up to host banquets and fundraisers with table seating for up to 80 people. It is also the perfect room to have your first dance after the wedding.
The South Wing works for events that flow outside to utilize the amazing grounds of the estate. This room has a lower level walk out door that opens to give your event an outdoor feel. The South Wing also includes a large lobby space, coat closet and breakout room space with kitchenette.
The Lizton Lodge Bridal Suite is one of the premiere suites in the state. Including a total of six private rooms reserved exclusively for the bridal party, it provides privacy and indulgence with four of the six rooms offering a fireplace. The Suite includes a tranquil library, as well as access to the White Hall for a grand staircase entrance. Two full bathrooms offer natural light and makeup vanities, closet space for bridesmaids, a large lounge space with multiple seating areas, balcony access overlooking the pond, plus a kitchenette with sink with mini fridge and it’s own private entrance. Perfection!
The Groom’s Suite is equally grand with access to the Billiards Room and a large preparation space with full bathroom facilities. The groom’s suite includes upscale entertainment options including a pool table, bar area, gaming theater, and multiple flat screen TVs. There are several seating areas and two large windows overlooking the canopy lit courtyard and another overlooking the woods.
No matter what event is planned at the Lizton Lodge, Lizton Lodge’s Billiards Room comes in handy. There is inevitably a period between activities, when guests want to linger. The Billiards is one of many places in the Lodge that is perfect for people to gather and create memories.
All of these rooms of the Lizton Lodge are connected via the common areas. Here guests can mingle in the breakfast nook, by one of five fireplaces in the home, or in the bar area. They can wander up the stairs to the suspended catwalk that overlooks the kitchen and dining room.
The unique feel of a turn of the century lodge is one among many reasons that makes Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering events at the Lizton Lodge so memorable.
