Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It doesn't get any prettier than this sweet country getaway at the heart of pastoral Calhoun County. The grounds are home to countless mature shade trees and a peaceful pond—complete with resident golden carp and a picturesque tire swing hanging over the water.
  • Let the bright red barn serve as your ceremony backdrop (your guests will look on from rustic church pews set on the lawn), then move inside for a reception in the spacious, open-raftered interior.
  • You can rent the charming Guest Cottage—a perfect "getting ready" space and honeymoon retreat—and the Lodge, which will accommodate a good portion of your overnight guests in its eight bedrooms.
