    Perfect! Absolutely perfect!

    We had our wedding at Rock Springs this year and it was everything! I literally have no words! From the house itself to the grounds, it is stunning. I’m a wedding photographer so I’ve visited tons of wedding venues over the years and Rock Springs has my heart!

Owners & Operators

We’re thrilled that you’re considering hosting your special celebration at Rock Spring Retreat!

Our vision for this peaceful escape was formed just a few years ago while exploring venues for our own wedding. We wanted to find a place where we could spend quality time with friends and family, have a stress-free ceremony and reception on site without having to shuttle around to multiple venues, and be able to cherish the memories made over a long weekend instead of a quick one-day event. We think we’ve come up with something pretty great – and hope you do too!

We purchased Rock Spring Retreat in late 2020 and have been up and running as a destination and venue since summer of 2021. We bring more than a decade of events management, hosting, design, and marketing experience (and many, many years of loving travel and luxury getaways), all of which we've put to use to make your Rock Spring experience one of a kind.
