Voted the 2nd Best Place to Get Married in Lake Tahoe in 2018! And featured on ABC’s 2018 “The Bachelor”!
Valhalla, meaning “heavenly place” in Norwegian, is a lakefront historic estate and truly a romantic setting for a wedding.

0253_7.17.10.HermannWeddingBuilt in 1924, this historic, beautifully detailed wood and stone hall features a wrap-around porch that with lakefront views and dock. Four sets of French doors open onto the porch, the Grand lawn, and frame the gorgeous lake views. A massive 20-foot tall stone fireplace and walk-in hearth anchors the Grand Hall and a second floor balcony offers opportunities to see and be seen during the festivities.

Valhalla’s Grand Hall is located on the Tallac Historic Site, on the southwest shore of Lake Tahoe just north of Camp Richardson Resort on Highway 89. Turn right at the Valhalla sign and follow the road to the right. Road circles right in front of the Grand Hall for loading and unloading.

To comply with Forest Service regulations, wedding ceremonies are held indoors. Receptions may include outdoor access within guidelines established by the Forest Service. Valhalla produces a cultural arts event from July through August, but there are some dates available for weddings or events. Contact our Wedding Director and see if your date is available!
