The Lodge at Malibou Lake is an historic venue in Agoura, Southern California. We are hidden in the rustic Santa Monica Mountains, shaded by sycamore and oak trees, and beside a storied private lake.
The Lodge is located less than an hour from downtown Los Angeles, minutes from the 101 freeway, and a step back in time from the pace of modern life.
We host weddings, parties, and corporate events. The Ballroom seats up to 200 for dining, and the Great Lawn overlooking the lake can seat 280.
The Lodge provides catering exclusively by Chef Cordelia, and comes fully furnished with dining tables, chairs, dishware, and lounge furniture.

Kudos To The Chef
“It's a such wonderful experience when you trust someone with one of the most important events of your life, and they exceed your expectations at every turn. Kudos to Chef Cordelia and her team."
The Director's Cinematic Wedding
“We hosted an outdoor wedding at Malibou Lake with 200 guests. It was an extensive affair- more like a movie production than a wedding in many ways. Chef Cordelia and her outstanding staff worked tirelessly, never losing an ounce of their professionalism and warmth. In the years following our wedding so many of our guests have said it was the best food they have had at a wedding - ever. It was as good or better than many high end dining experience we have had. Seriously. Chef Cordelia made us feel special on our wedding day and she made the event custom tailored to us.”

A Menu Unique To Us
"Chef Cordelia's food was a huge part of what made my wedding feel unique and specific to my partner and me. Cordelia catered my wedding in May 2016 for over 100 friends and family, and I can't wait to find a reason to work with her again. Her staff was wonderful and genuinely excited to be a part of the party. By the end of the night, we had multiple people tell us that Cordelia's food was the best dinner they'd had at any wedding.”
Event Coordinator's Own Wedding
“Chef Cordelia is simply THE best. I've worked in event planning and catering for over a decade, and you simply will not find anyone who has the combination of skills, talents, and personality she does. Last fall, she catered my own wedding, and every single thing was on point.”

An Enchanted Forest Wedding
"Choosing Malibou Lake as my wedding venue is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. For the ceremony, the guests were seated outside, perfectly situated under the shade of a nearby tree, with a view of the beautiful lake. The reception room is GORGEOUS, with beautiful light fixtures, big open windows, fireplace, and brand new hardwood floors. Thank you SO much for giving me the most beautiful and perfect wedding, better than I could have ever imagined."
Stunning Location, Indoors And Out
“I seriously cannot get over how stunning Malibou Lake is! The venue is breathtaking. I couldn't stress enough how much I loved that it wasn't in the heart of LA - it was a sweet getaway for the evening. All of our guests kept telling us how they enjoyed being away from the city for the night and the romantic feeling that Malibou Lake had given them. It was a beautiful venue and I couldn't have asked for anything more. ”
A Natural Setting Only 40 Minutes From Hollywood
“My husband and I are SO happy that we chose Malibou Lake as our wedding venue. We searched forever for a venue with an outdoor space for the ceremony and an indoor reception area, and that turned out to be really hard to find in LA. The building itself (which has a very interesting history), as well as the natural setting of the surrounding lake and mountains, are just incredibly beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop to our day. Many guests noted how easy it was to get there, it being just 40 minutes away from 'Hollywood' proper, but yet how they felt entirely outside of the city in the beautiful countryside.”
