You can have a champagne toast in vintage-style glasses to kick off your reception, with a wide variety of dining options available for you and your guests.
The Ellis family has managed the Pond ever since Patrick’s father, Dr. George Ellis, built it in 1972 to provide water for pasture and horses. Patrick and Lisa Ellis had their farmhouse built by the Pond in 2010. In July 2019, they made the property available for other couples to enjoy their special celebrations.
