You can choose from our rustic-English feel Club Room or Carriage House for your wedding reception.

There are two large and two smaller rooms featuring brick, stone, beamed ceilings and four faux fireplaces enhanced with twinkling lights. The Club Room can accommodate up to 125 people.

This charming Carriage House has open French doors that lead to the outside garden area by the fountain. The west room has a door that leads to the side courtyard. It is the perfect venue for a spring or summer wedding when nature is at its best! Carriage House features two large rooms, a bride’s room, a large caterer’s kitchen, and restrooms upstairs and downstairs.

A tent can be set up by a vendor and beautifully decorated with chandeliers and ceiling draping to make sure every moment of your wedding is perfect. During the cooler season, the sides of the tent may be wrapped to provide heating or air conditioning.
