Magnificent Property - An amazing wedding venue exceeding all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend purpose was venue for rehearsal dinner for 65 with lodging for the groomsmen and extended groom' s family. PERFECTION for our need. All guests were amazed at the magnificence of the place. The patio with expansive views of the lake was perfect for our cocktail hour before dinner. The large, well equipped kitchen with huge granite island was a great base of operations. The barn dresses out nicely for any dinner or reception with ambient lighting in rafters & cooling fan to mitigate summer heat. Wonderful to hear the rain on the tin roof during the short thunderstorm which, with the barn set-up, we were well prepared for. The house was very clean with all rooms / bedrooms sumptuously appointed with plenty of linens & towels.

Perfect setting for groomsmen to relax with no need to leave the property. After large farm breakfast, the groom's party enjoyed shooting skeet on a range overlooking a vineyard, a setting fit for Garden & Gun. The owner's son Martin was a most gracious and patient host providing guidance to those less experienced with shotguns.

Great park like place for open house for out of town guests the day of the wedding - many of all ages enjoyed the deep cool lake with waterfall, jump-off rock, zip-line, trampoline tube and kayak. Party continued on the third day with after wedding brunch.

Greg, the owner, was very gracious allowing access to the view property enabling us to fine tune our wedding plans.

Perfect Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful retreat for a weekend reunion. It felt like we were out in woods but were only minutes from town. Greg was a gracious host- always available to help with any needs, serving wine and cheese for us the first night, lighting the fire, taking the guys skeet shooting. Sitting around the roaring fire in the gazebo was a perfect way to end the day. Loved hiking around the property. The secret garden was beautiful! Would love to return in the summer when we could swim in the beautiful pond. We had 7 couples in our group and it was a little crowded (2 couples had to share a room). 6 couples would be a better number. Hope to return soon!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a truly amazing place! We stayed here in July 2015 as a family reunion/wedding. We had 7 adults and 4 kids (ages 3-10) and every single one of us had an incredible time. The property has everything--trails with walled garden, horseshoes, hammock, and the piece de resistance: the swimming pond with trampoline, zip line, slide, kayak, etc. The owner, Greg, made breakfast one morning, shaved ice one day, and chicken and ribs one night. It is not a trip we will forget anytime soon--the kids are already asking when we can go back!
