History
The Estate was founded in the late 1800s and originally named for the five mighty trees on the front lawn. Five Oaks soon boasted a barn, carriage house, boathouse and formal gardens. The two interior fireplaces were created with stones from around the world. The estate was operating as a dining establishment when it was purchased in 1961 and was sold after the second owner’s passing in 2003. Under its new ownership it gained popularity as a wedding and events venue on the shores of Lake Chippewa.

    Phenomenal

    Guys! I could not have asked for a more beautiful or smooth wedding day! We almost didn’t visit because of the small occupancy number listed on The Knot but they can accommodate much more than 150. They’ve recently renovated their event/reception side of the venue and it is absolutely stunning! I’d you're looking for a sophisticated yet comfortable venue, this is the place. I’d describe it as clean, fresh, and simplistic. They have just the right amount of decorations within the hall including greenery and strings of lights. I was going for a garden party theme so it was perfect but you can really make it what you want.

    The ceremony site is SO pretty. You can get married right off the lake and the sun sets right behind the ceremony gazebo. We honestly almost didn’t contact them because the venue looked so expensive online but it is so affordable. The grounds are perfect for pictures of you, your wedding party, and family. Lots of pretty options.

    We did a cocktail hour after the ceremony and it was so fun. We had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding at the same location a month before ours and theirs was just as fun with a more classic twist. Both were lovely!

    The dinner was literally to die for! We did the Gorgonzola chicken, herb crushed medallions, and salmon and I would sell my right hand to eat it again (I’m right handed). ;)

    From the get-go, the coordinator there, Kristi rocked it. She was able to answer all our questions on the first visit and throughout the planning process was so accommodating and wonderful! She took care of coordinating vendors day of and stopped in frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. We got ready on premisses in their beautifully new bride’s room and it was so much fun.

    If you’re in the area and choose another venue you are not thinking clearing, visit The Oaks. This is the place to get married and celebrate!

    Absolutely beautiful wedding!

    My daughter was married and had her reception at the Oaks this past Saturday. It was amazing! Kristi and her staff dis an exceptional job. The food was incredible and the venue was absolutely gorgeous. My daughter and I could not have chosen a better venue for her wedding.

    Amazing and beautiful!

    Kristi was great to work with! The outdoor ceremony was beautiful and all of guests couldn’t stop talking about how great the food was.
