The venue can accommodate between 50 to 140 guests.
Ceremony in the Woods. Couples can exchange vows while surrounded by lush trees at the ceremony site in the woods. A natural pine chapel provides a beautiful backdrop for the event.
Streamside Gazebo. The rustic white gazebo is another great place to hold a wedding ceremony. The couple can get married in the gazebo or near the stream in front of the stone bridge.
Winter Garden Wall. Another great site for the ceremony and cocktail hour, the Winter Garden Wall includes white lace drapery that serves as an alter. Towering trees above the wall make a gorgeous background at this site, which can also be tented for shade.
Wedding Barn. The most popular place for wedding receptions at 1896 Summer House, the rustic restored barn offers a 24-square-foot dance floor for guests to dance the night away. The large attached deck can be tented or left uncovered for additional space during the reception and can also be used for the ceremony or cocktail hour.
Estate Grounds. There are several other areas on the estate that can be tented for a wedding reception and many clearings in the woods that make beautiful ceremony sites. Couples can explore the 23 acres and choose the perfect place for their event.
