History
This venue has a long history and is a great option for couples who’d like to start their lives as a married couple in a historic, romantic setting. It started with the War of 1812 when the Cottle family obtained the property on land grant 285 from the war. Oliver Cottle, wanting to live his dream of owning a stunning stone house, added a small house to the property to live that dream. Built on top of a hill between several sycamore trees, the house features historical, architectural charm. The conservatory was added to the house in 1903 and there is a beautiful fireplace on the wall. The oldest known photograph of the stone house features two boys and was taken in the 1930s.

Beautiful wedding venue

I had my wedding at Stone House at the end of May, 2023. I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding day and the grounds of stone house is just absolutely beautiful! Ruth and Mike were super communicative and responded always so quickly and efficiently. The only tough part for me was planning my wedding all the way from Boston, so I was not able to go to the open houses due to work.. I did however, plan a day trip out and Ruth happily accommodated my schedule and met with me and walked through all the decor and day of details. The bridal cottage is so cute and has all that you need! We ended up getting the bridal booze pkg from booze brothers and they stocked our fridge prior with all the goodies! My guests had a fantastic time and everything just went so seamlessly. And if there was something that went wrong, I sure didn’t notice it! If you are looking for an officiant, I would recommend Terri from Moonstone meaningful ceremonies as well! Terri and Ruth worked so well together and they both made our ceremony so special, outdoors under the pergola.

I had a smaller wedding size of about 96. The only draw I would say about the venue with this group size is the reception area did feel empty in areas because I just didn’t have the budget to fill in the spaces. So if you have a similar size, maybe think about decor or pieces you could rent to fill in the area. Other than that, my day was truly magical. Thank you again Ruth and Mike!

It was the perfect day!

The Stone House of St. Charles is a beautiful venue! All of our guests are still talking about how perfect and beautiful everything was. We have Ruth to thank for how perfect our day was! She is amazing to work with and truly knows everything you need. We got married at a church and had our reception at Stone House of St. Charles and Ruth was sweet enough to give us some tips for our ceremony, such as the traditional and non traditional order of family walking down the aisle and how the groomsmen and bridesmaids should position their hands. It was so kind of her to discuss these things with us because we wouldn’t have known if we didn’t talk to her. We also were still able to get ready at the Stone House and it was the perfect place to start the day. It is absolutely gorgeous! Our hair and makeup stylists were also so pleased because they already had salon chairs and LED light mirrors in one of the rooms. Stone House also sets up and takes everything down after the ceremony and reception! Not to mention… they also have their own decorations you can use. I mean who else does that?! This made the day SO SO much easier. They also have an amazing DJ. One of my top priorities for the day was that the dance floor would never be empty and it definitely wasn’t because of how amazing the DJ was! We are truly so grateful for Ruth, Mike, and all of the workers at Stone House of St. Charles because thanks to them we had the perfect wedding day and all of our family and friends had an amazing time too!

Top tier venue and team!

Stone House is a beautiful venue and Ruth with her team are outstanding! Truly know how to plan without a hitch. My daughter had several specifics she wanted but was very laid back and let Ruth do her magic. It was amazing and so very enjoyable for everyone. Refreshing to have a wedding even without completely stressing out. Thank you Ruth!
