Welcome to the Garden House
The Garden House is our most secluded venue, with wrap-around windows to enjoy the open air, and a beautiful blend of wood and mocha ledge rock wall.
Choose from two ceremony locations – A tranquil setting on the patio overlooking the Woods and Orchard, or “The Clearing in The Woods”, just steps through the Orchard, “Mother Nature’s Wooded Chapel”. An indoor fireside ceremony is also included.
The main room features wrap-around windows that can open to enjoy the fresh air and an evening breeze, a mocha ledge rock wall, fieldstone fireplace and spacious dance floor leading to the outdoor patios.
Step into the Orchard for cocktails and hors d ’oeuvres “Al fresco”.
There is a backyard patio with bistro tables and chairs, and an outdoor fireplace. There’s also an indoor Lounge that features a fieldstone fireplace and leads to the side patio with seating.
The potting shed in the Orchard, the fountain, the woods, and so many other pockets of pretty areas for photographs.
