Our private Event Facility has two floors, windows along the back of the room that over looks the lake and lush gardens along with a covered terrace that serves as the perfect location for your cocktail hour and mingling.
The Oaks has a full-time Event Coordinator, an Event Staff dedicated to weddings along with an expert Culinary Team to cater to you and your guests on your Special Day.
Our Estate can host other events for couples aside from Ceremonies and Receptions. Couples can also use our venue for Bridal Showers, Rehearsal Dinners and Engagement Parties.
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.

Absolutely amazing! Made my special day more perfect than I could've asked for. The food was rich and delicious, and my guests loved the drinks at the bar. It is such a cozy place for a nice intimate wedding, and the view of the lake during the sunset made the entire evening. Thank you guys so very much for the great service and beautiful venue!!!Sent on 11/08/2017

We had a unique situation where we had wanted to get married at the Oaks, however due to being per swayed and pushed by our families, we would up having a very formal, traditional, and large wedding. Not that it wasn't lovely! Just not what we wanted. My husband and I decided to do a less formal route for our one year anniversary and write our own vows like we had wanted and get "remarried". Obviously, not the most typical wedding inquiry. The Oaks was super kind and accommodating to our situation and we had a wonderful anniversary day! They even gave us a complimentary glass of champagne to toast with! Beautiful location and grounds and very kind and helpful staff!Sent on 12/27/2015
