Facilities and Capacity

The Hidden Homestead is an expansive venue that offers to-be-weds a world of choice when planning their big day. Couples can choose to host their ceremony in one of several outdoor sites. They can choose to say “I do” under the shelter of an elegant lakeside gazebo, which can be decorated by string lighting and a chandelier. For a more laid-back ceremony, The Archway is an ideal choice. Adjacent to The Barn, it is a simple site that overlooks the lake and can be styled according to the taste of those stepping down the aisle. The Wooded Wedding is a truly magical setting, offering to-be-weds the chance to exchange vows in a peaceful glade. Afterward, guests can retreat to the shelter of the barn for an unforgettable reception. The space includes central heating and air-conditioning to ensure the party is comfortable from start to finish. There is also a fully-equipped kitchen that makes organizing catering easy. The property also includes golf carts for getting to The Barn from any of the ceremony sites. Stylish furniture is featured with the rental of the venue, including vintage tables and chairs. There is ample parking available on-site.

    Scott is everything all rolled into one.

    Scott Skaggs owns and operates this venue. Scott has been a wedding photographer for a long time and he talked to different brides and built the perfect venue. A beautiful rustic barn with a little pond. The barn is two stories and has a suite for both the bride and bridesmaids, also the groom and groomsmen. You have the option to spend the night at the venue or in a bridal cottage we chose to stay in the venue and had the best time.

    Absolutely beautiful

    Absolutely beautiful the pictures don’t do justice. Scott Scaggs is really nice to work with. I would have to recommend having him do the photography work as well so happy with the money I spend on our wedding

    best venue ever

    Scott Skaggs was so great and easy to work with. He made our venue experience a breeze. He has a giant room of decorations so they amount of money spent on decor was little to zero on our part. Then he allows you to come the day before the wedding and spend all day decorating using whatever you want from his decoration room. On top of all of that, the deposit you pay can be used as a clean up. This was amazing because we just got up and left after the wedding and didn't have to worry about a thing. The Bridal party spent the night out there and Scott made sure we were comfortable and was so responsive to anything we needed the whole weekend. There are also multiple locations you can get married at the venue so tons of options for anyone to choose from. Highly, HIGHLY recommend The Hidden Homestead!!
