The Hines Hill Campus at Cuyahoga Valley National Park features a cottage and barn for couples’ weddings in the Cleveland, Ohio area. This park also includes a conference center. These country and outdoorsy spaces will draw couples in with serene natural surroundings and vintage venues.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples will find three facilities on this 60-acre wooded property that welcomes up to 150 guests. They can choose from the Hines Hill Conference Center, Stone Cottage and a rustic barn for their celebration. Ceremonies can take place in one of these three venues or out on the property among the impressive trees and green grasses. They can also exchange vows in front of the large stone fireplace in the Hines Hill House. The natural stone of the fireplace echoes the rough-cut stone of the cottage’s facade. The barn features cathedral ceilings with wooden beams and rafters. Windows let natural light into the space and strings of lights add a romantic glow to the space after the sun sets. Couples can also choose to set a tent up on the property for an outdoor reception.
By hosting their event at the Hines Hills Campus at Cuyahoga Valley National Park, couples are supporting the Conservancy’s educational programs and its mission to promote environmental stewardship. This venue offers its hospitable and down-to-earth services for any wedding events, including bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners in addition to ceremonies and receptions. Other services include:
Established in 1904, the Hines Hill property originally served as a summer home for the Jaite family. This family owned the Jaite Packaging mill. Their spacious house became the administrative offices for the Conservancy, their barn became the Hines Hill Conference Center, and an elaborate chicken coop became the Stone Cottage. The purchasing of the property in 1975 by Robert and Phyllis Gioia helped shape the venue into its current state. Robert Gioia worked as a demolitions contractor and always looked for salvageable pieces to add to the estate. The stained-glass windows on the property’s buildings likely came from a psychiatric building in the area, and the stone fireplace originated at Case Western Reserve University. Each piece helps make the venue the unique collection it is today.

If you're looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with more than enough places to create special areas for your guests, this is the place. We fell in love with it the second we saw it. The vendors (that weren't familiar with it) couldn't believe they had never heard of this little gem in the CVNP. Every single on of,out guests made a point to tell us how stunning the campus was. The photographer had plenty of locations to choose from and the sunset through the trees is going to make for some incredible photos! Best decision to host out wedding here!Sent on 07/11/2017

Excellent staff and beautiful space.
Our wedding at the Hines Hill Conference Center was beautiful and seamless thanks to the staff at the Conservancy. Planning our wedding from Oregon could have been stressful, but the responsiveness and guidance from the staff made it easy. They even went above and beyond the day of the reception by taking guests coats for us! So kind. The space was beautiful, warm, and intimate. We wish we could do it all again. :)Sent on 03/01/2019

Couldn't be happier with the venue and the staff. Hines Hill is an excellent location, nestled in the middle of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, it's super green and has great indoor space as well. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. I had to plan the entire wedding from across the country and it was so easy. I couldn't recommend Hines Hill enough. We also stayed at the Stanford house after which served as a great after party location for a more intimate setting.Sent on 09/05/2018
