Wedding Ceremony Locations

HARVEST HALL – is a beautifully decorated building located in a Brown County wooded country setting. The inside location is designed to fit everyone’s needs, completely heated and air conditioned with a romantic fireplace. A large indoor stage provides the ideal setting for an indoor ceremony if the weather is not perfect for an outdoor wedding. The loft area provides a bird’s eye view, and our wooden staircase and the backdrop gives the bride and her party the perfect, breathtaking entrance. A separate room is set aside for the bride and her wedding party's needs.  The hall accommodates up to 250 guests

OUR LAKE affords a truly stunning and unforgettable backdrop, where your reflections seem to last forever. Guests are comfortably seated along the dam overlooking the lake while the bride and groom exchange their vows on the dock with their family and bridal party surrounding them. This picturesque location accommodates wedding parties up to 100. Zip back over the spot where you got married later in the day or save that adventure for your first day as a married couple!

OUTSIDE THE HALL there is a grassy area surrounded by woods, perfect for setting up a gazebo or rent our wedding arch. An intimate location for the cozy, small wedding ceremony, providing a great view of the foliage yet provides close access to the restrooms and hall facility.

OUTDOOR SHELTER/STAGE will accommodate large wedding parties. The Stage is surrounded by beautiful Brown County forest and is a favorite location for outdoor weddings. Should your plans for an outdoor wedding be interrupted due to the weather, your wedding ceremony can easily be moved into the Harvest Hall. 

Receptions: Receptions are most commonly held in our heated and air conditioned Harvest Hall, comfortably seating over 200 guests. Built in the style of a barn but decorated with authentic Impressionistic paintings by the acclaimed Brown County artist Patricia Rhoden and Brown County antiques, Harvest Hall is the ultimate location for a true country reception with a touch of class.
