Hold a wedding in a former Catholic elementary school? Amen to that! - and we promise, no one will rap your knuckles with a ruler for bad behavior. In fact, we encourage you to dance in the hallways, drink on school property, laugh out loud in classrooms and more.
Built in 1936 as the St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, this hotel is a gem unlike any other, offering comfortable and modern guestrooms, an onsite brewery, a year-round soaking pool, quaint small bars and more. After your big event, guests can enjoy the entire property, taking in the original artwork, stopping for a glass of wine or a pint of ale, gathering together in any number of cozy spots including hidden rooms. We even have one cottage that accommodates up to 10 where you can host an entire wedding party.
The Old St. Francis School is one of the most charming venues in all of central Oregon - it will leave you and your guests with wonderful memories.
