Why We Like This Place

  • With 10 acres of gorgeous botanical gardens (including rose, woodland and Japanese-style) and a large sparkling lake, events here are surrounded by unique specimen trees, verdant lawns, and exquisite landscaping.
  • The operating model railway makes a unique spot for a cocktails & hors d’oeuvres reception, and a charming photo op for you and your wedding party. There’s even an option to add the ride-on train for kids aged seven and under to take a spin!
  • With only one event scheduled per wedding weekend, you’ll have plenty of time before and after the Big Day for setup and cleanup.
