About Mount Ida Farm

Mount Ida Farm & Vineyard now offers THREE distinct, exclusive, and private venues for weddings.

Coupled with the backdrop of the grand historic Mount Ida Manor and spectacular lakeside gazebo ceremony site, the Event Barn offers a unique country estate setting.

If panoramic mountain views in a rustic chic location is desired, The Lodge provides the perfect venue; complete with a mountain grove ceremony, soaring timber ceilings, and crystal chandeliers.

If you want to get married with your toes in the sand, our newest venue at Water’s Edge may be what you are looking for. Rustic charm meets coastal elegance at this beach side retreat. Choose between a wedding inside at the Red Barn or opt for an outdoor celebration at the Pavillion overlooking the lake.

    Micro wedding dream come true!

    When our original wedding venue cancelled on us two months before the big day citing COVID, my now husband and I scrambled to find a new venue for a micro wedding while postponing our big celebration to next year. I was thrilled to find Mount Ida was offering elopement packages and it was truly the best experience we could have possibly had. We selected the Aventador House and Thomas Ridge ceremony site. All of our guests were blown away by the beauty of the property and ceremony space. It was a weekend we will never forget. Special thanks to Matt who was so helpful and gracious throughout our stay! This venue will always have a special place in our hearts.

    Incredible Staff and Venue

    I was married at the Lodge and I couldn't have asked for a better venue! Not only were the on site staff extremely friendly, but they were available for our entire weekend stay. We did the mini destination package and our families rented two additional houses for a 3 day weekend. Tracy was available for any of our questions that weekend and Matt was phenomenal with any maintenance or on site help we needed as well. Mount Ida also has remote staff that worked with us and were available during the entire planning process. I did not have to set up, take down or put away a single thing the entire weekend and especially the day of. Mount Ida is worth every single penny and then some. We will forever be getting compliments on how relaxed the staff was day of as well as the horses and exceptionally gorgeous property. We can't wait to continue to visit and drink wine at their taproom too!

    Mount Ida Farm is such a gorgeous venue! I love having the opportunity to photograph there and utilize the many unique locations that highlight the best this area has to offer. The ceremony spot is spectacular with the gazebo and overlook of the pond while the reception space ties in the rustic farm feel. This venue is perfect for the families as well since they can chose to rent out houses and stay on location. I especially enjoy working with Milicent and her staff as they are always so helpful and supportive during wedding days.

  • Amanda's Touch Bridal & Formal Wedding Dresses

    Mount Ida is an absolutely stunning place, we have had some photo shoots here for a spread in a wedding magazine with our dresses and it is just soooo beautiful!

  • Jewish Heart and Soul—Rabbi-Cantor Annie Bornstein Wedding Officiants
