Malibou Lake is a unique oasis in the Santa Monica Mountains, surrounded by over 5,000 acres of protected wilderness.  In 1936, the members of the Malibou Lake Mountain Club built The Lodge to serve as the heart of its private lakeside community.  For over 80 years The Lodge has hosted weddings, meetings, dances, conferences, and parties of all kinds.

The Lodge offers both indoor and outdoor event spaces, allowing for a multitude of creative uses, from rustic picnics with lawn games to elegant seated dinners with dancing.  The Lodge is fully furnished with dining tables and chairs, which can be arranged to suit your needs.  We only book one event per day, so you'll have exclusive use of all of our facilities and furnishings:

  • The Ballroom

  • The Great Lawn

  • The Front Porch

  • The Library Bar

  • 3 Private Changing Rooms

The Lodge at Malibou Lake is managed Exclusively by Chef Cordelia Catering
