Would choose this venue every time
We LOOOOVED this venue as well as Jill and the rest of her crew! Jill is very flexible and easy going and all about helping the bride to make things less stressful. The venue was wonderful! We love the space and how people can be on the deck, inside, upstairs, or out on the field area. You get the cabin feel plus much more for half the price compared to other venues. For our wedding we had 200 guests, so the only thing that we did not like was that not all our guests could see us, but it still worked out! That would be my only thing for others to be aware of especially if you have a bigger wedding, otherwise if it's a smaller wedding this may not be a concern. Other than that, we have no complaints and if we could do it all over again we would pick this place again.Sent on 10/28/2019
