River's Edge is nestled high along a river valley at the end of a secluded country road. The breathtaking landscape provides brilliant green acres shimmering in the sunlight, towering tree lines and at its far boundries where the hill meets the valley, it draws your eyes to a sweeping view of the Pecatonica River.
The River's Edge is a stunning outdoor wedding venue! Experience your ceremony nestled on the edge of the tree line. This could be decorated beautifully with wooden pews or antique seating and light features hanging from the trees. Cocktail hour allows your guests to take in the awe-inspiring views of the river valley or sit comfortably in our entertainment lounge. After your cocktail hour, enjoy dinner from our caterer inside your elegant tent. End the evening taking a stroll through luminaries and cozying up in front of the fire pit under the brilliant stars.
In addition to the beautiful wilderness, River's Edge wedding venue offers a private main house, a portion of which can be used for your wedding. This rental space includes a sun porch that hosts your sign-in and gift table area, bridal suite and an entertainment lounge. Our bridal suite is a spacious room which includes a full kitchen, living and dining room with full bath. Following your ceremony, capture once-in-a-lifetime photos as you troll down the river in our pontoon boat. Guests can enjoy appetizers in our cocktail/entertainment lounge. Filled with plush furniture, pool table and bar with an outside patio, this is the perfect place for your guests to visit before entering the elegant outdoor tent for dinner and dancing.
With full food and beverage offerings available, River's Edge has all of the bases covered. Please inquire about not only weddings, but corportate retreats, family reunions and anniversaries! By appointment only, please call or email for your private tour!

Julie, I am discouraged that you choose to write this critical review. We were pleased to open our home and offer our private wooded lawn for your wedding reception, free of charge. Wishing you the best today and always. Jake & TerriSent on 09/14/2016

I wouldnt recommend working with this venue. The Rafters in Lena is who runs this venue. I had my reception there last Fall and they were very difficult to work with. On the day of my reception several things went wrong that we've talked about several times. When i tried to talk to the manager at Rafters, who is supposedly the owners son, he was rude and really made excuses for everything. He was supposed to call me back the following Monday which was December 7th, Im still waiting for the call.Sent on 04/11/2016
