Dates are reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Whomever has emailed us first requesting to sign the contract for a specific date will be first in line.

We do offer camping if guests want to pull in for a night or two. Our campsites for wedding guests are $25 per tent/unit and do not have hookups.
Our Airbnb trailers (2) sleep 8 comfortably and have full hookups and private fire pits
Do you host off season weddings?
Our wedding seasons runs from June 1 - October 1. As the reception space is not heated.
Is the venue pet friendly?
If the couple getting married wishes to bring their dog, that is okay with us as long as they stay on a leash and have a designated babysitter. We ask that guests attending the wedding do not bring their dogs. There is a kennel located just down the road from us called Cairdeas Kennel.
The bridal suite is not pet friendly. (A small non shedding dog would be okay in a crate) A lot of blood sweat and tears went into renovating the suite so we want to keep it looking as good as possible for future weddings. Dog hair and wedding dresses are not a good mix.
