This venue is beautiful! It's a blank canvas so you can really do whatever style you want for your wedding. The owners are a mother and daughter duo that are the nicest, sweetest, funniest owners I have ever meet. They gave me so much time to set up and to tear down and were very accommodating in letting me in at any time to take measurements and pictures of the space. Because the that my wedding was everything I wished it was. I did not use them to provide catering and bar services but everything else they did for me and wedding, was above and beyond. Without them my wedding venue wouldn't have been everything I ever wanted.

Our daughter picked out this venue because it has a chapel area and a reception hall connected, with no stairs! This was important for some of our guests. She also liked the pretty outdoor patio in the back. After picking it out, the Chrisman Manor and the manager, Kyrstan, continued to exceed our expectations! The inside of the building is fabulous and easy to decorate. They provide 20 tables and 200 chairs. No need to rent and haul things. Plus there is a storeroom full of really nice decorations. We used about 30 lanterns and didn't come close to using them all. They also provide 3 big wooden tables that we used for the food.
The bride's dressing room is upstairs and is very pretty and large enough to let everyone spread out, get dressed, and has its own restroom.
I cannot rave enough about this place. The setting is nice - it's a working farm and there is a pond and pasture behind the building (a ways off) but it makes a peaceful backdrop. There is an outdoor space for a wedding but we chose to use the indoor chapel. It was nice to have an indoor option since we didn't want to have to worry about the weather - too hot, too windy, too wet, etc. It turned out to be a perfect evening so we were able to open the door to the reception hall and people flowed freely from the outdoor patio to inside.
There is also plenty of parking.
We rented the farmhouse with it and it is also very well appointed. Lots of bunk style comfy beds upstairs and two bedrooms on the main floor, two bathrooms, living room and kitchen. Even a screened-in porch. So very nice and well worth the cost. The bridesmaids stayed there on evening before the wedding and the parents stayed there the night of the wedding. It was nice not to have to drive anywhere and was easy to get back over for cleanup on Sunday morning.
We only have one daughter but I almost wish I had another excuse to rent this place again. It was fantastic.

I cannot say enough nice things about Chrisman Manor! I really wanted an outdoor ceremony, however my husband was determined we have a back-up plan in case of bad weather. Chrisman Manor was exactly what we were looking for - a beautiful outdoor space, an indoor chapel if needed, and a separate, elegant room for the reception. Krystan was incredibly easy to work with and quick to respond to calls, texts, and emails. We were able to visit the venue multiple times prior to the ceremony and use any of the decorations left from previous events. We had around 160 people at our wedding and feel this was a good number to comfortably fit in the main reception room. We brought in our own alcohol and food. We hired two bartenders from the venue who were very affordable and friendly throughout the night. Kyrstan was flexible about accessing the venue so we had ample time to set up the day before and day of as well as clean up the following day. We are so grateful to have found a venue as laid back as Chrisman Manor which made planning a wedding as easy as possible!
