Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Once the site of a thriving Shaker settlement, this beautiful property is now under the ownership of a family dedicated to unearthing its treasures and sharing them with the world through its museum, celebration venues, and lodgings.
  • There are seven event sites across the lush grounds, allowing you to craft the day's flow exactly as you wish. We love the idea of ceremony at Deere Pond, with its graceful weeping willow, and a tented reception amid the romantic, stacked-stone Ruins.
  • Accommodate up to eighteen overnight guests across three artfully restored buildings—The Stone House, Caretaker’s Cottage, and Smokehouse all feature double rooms and countless charming, vintage-inspired design touches.
