History

Ray Vernon Estate was founded by Harry and Bessie Hassinger, who purchased the land in 1939. Spanning 600 acres, they farmed the land with their children, Ray and Glenn. The family’s camp, called the Hassingers’ Shady Rest, was built in 1949 and still stands in the area today. As Ray and Glenn grew into adults, they became employed, got married, and purchased the farm from their parents. The current owners originally had four acres of the farm, and in 2015 they had the opportunity to add several more acres. As a way to honor their legacy, the property is named after the Hassinger’s father, Ray and his brother (Glenn) Vernon.

The Best!!

The Ray Vernon Estate was such a great place to have our wedding!! They have a beautiful backdrop of the mountains, and the inside is absolutely stunning. The Hassingers were a delight to work with, they responded fast, helpful, and gave advice. Plus, they allow dogs!

Breathtaking views

I fell in love with this place the moment I laid eyes on it. The building is breathtaking along with the views of the mountain. Melody and Tom were incredibly helpful in recommending vendors and giving us ideas on how to set up the venue. We were able to have the venue from Thursday - Sunday and it really helped us keep the event as low stress as possible. They were available at all times to answer questions and made us feel so special. I cannot wait to get the photos back from the photographer, because I know they will be amazing. If you are looking for the perfect place to get married, look no further!

Incredible

My daughter got married on 11/4/23. It is a spectacular venue and the owners are wonderful/down to earth and easy to work with. Absolutely top notch in all categories. Gorgeous setting and a great time was had by all! I felt like I knew this family all my life- that’s how good this experience was. So happy that this was the place chosen for their perfect wedding day!
