The whole package
I don't think my husband and I could've picked a better venue. Monica and her husband are so incredibly helpful on top of the beautiful location. We didn't have a wedding planner so she went out of her way to answer all of our questions and help us make sure everything was done. The nearby cabins are gorgeous, they were decorated and smelled nice. Plenty of room to get ready. Tons of places to take pictures and an on site bathroom. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. (All photos are credited to Sam Bond Photography)Sent on 10/28/2019

Monica is so wonderful to work with as a wedding pro. The venue is easy to get to and easy to set up and take down. There are so many options on the property for brides to get married, have photos and for the reception. Thank you for all you do Monica!
