5 Star review From Melissa on September 9th, 2019
“Venue is absolutely beautiful and everything you could want for an outdoor wedding! John and Pat are great to work with. Set up, tear down is seamless and they coordinates with your vendors you bring in. The cabin you can rent on site is perfect. John is quick to respond to questions and willing to let you come on site for whatever you need to help plan your wedding. Our day was absolutely perfect and the venue was gorgeous! We received so many compliments about how amazing and beautiful the grounds were. We would recommend this place over and over again for a wedding! Hands down the best!!”
