Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review

• The venue is charming and old-fashioned. Think Anne of Green Gables: it’s an all-white clapboard house with a gabled roof and wraparound porch.

• Getting ready is a pleasure in the bridal suite. You’ll feel like a princess in this light-filled, richly appointed beige and white room with a gleaming wood-finished fireplace, armoire and dresser.

• The lawn is a romantic place to say “I do.” Exchange vows against a backdrop of trees beneath the wooden trellis provided by the venue. Add decorations to suit your taste, or leave them as is for a simple, more natural look. The natural wooden barn is a fun place for photos, too.
