Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • An elegant estate with a dreamy French Normandy style manor at its center, this spot truly feels like a fairytale come to life—you'll feel miles away from the bustle of modern day (though in reality, you're just half an hour from downtown Minneapolis!)
  • Exchange vows beneath a beautiful black wrought-iron gazebo, surrounded on all sides by acres of trees, gardens, and meadows. Follow with a reception in the newly-built ballroom, where towering windows offer unobstructed views of the grounds.
  • There are more intimate spaces, too, like the inviting rooms of the mansion itself, including a wonderful bar area with an attached outdoor space that allows guests to flow onto the porch and courtyard.
