Nestled amongst the verdant wilderness of the Shawnee National Forest, Havisham House is a historic wedding location in Alto Pass, Illinois. The aged beauty of the household is complemented by the stunning nature of its surroundings, presenting couples with a breathtaking backdrop for their big day. Respectfully renovated with tasteful décor and modern amenities, the manor and its attendant carriage-house welcome wedding parties for an elegant and memorable celebration.
Facilities and Capacity
With a history stretching back to the late 19th-century, Havisham House is a pristine Neo-Georgian property. Its charming red-brick facade is elevated by tall arched window fixtures, broken by an expansive portico in which guests may relax. Inside couples will find an interior at once tastefully luxurious and pastoral. Rustic, welcoming materials meet hardwood floors, accentuated by a refined color palette for stately effect. The property’s expansive grounds welcome a celebration of up to 200 guests. From 2020, the property will include a courtyard pavilion, purpose-built for weddings, with an open-plan design. After the festivities have ended, a close group of family and friends can avail themselves of the comfortable and well-appointed rooms of the manor. The smaller carriage-house, in turn, provides a more private retreat, which can also be adapted as a get-ready suite. There is parking available on-site for those in attendance.
Havisham House proposes inclusive wedding packages which include rental of the entire property for a long weekend of celebrations. The property’s staff are happy to welcome outside vendors of your choice for the event. As Havisham House is located in Southern Illinois’ wine country, the venue staff encourages and is happy to recommend local vineyards to supply your reception.
Surrounded by some of the nation’s most spectacular views, Havisham House is a nature-lovers dream. Undulating hills embrace the property, with craggy precipices and wide, sweeping valleys framing the many nearby hiking trails. Local sights include Bald Knob Cross, the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, and the meandering Cache River.
