Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • There are so many beautiful ceremony options at this secluded Waco getaway—we especially love the romantic Courtyard, where you can follow your "I dos" with lawn games and mingling around the pool and fire pits.
  • Host a warm, intimate reception in the pretty Gathering House or an all-out bash outdoors beneath a canopy of twinkle-lit trees. Ample open space means there's plenty of room for a tent, too.
  • Up to 50 guests can be accommodated in the charming on-site lodgings, with many more hotel and vacation rental options available in nearby Waco.
