The Treman Center is a unique elegant barn venue with Tuscan Italianate courtyards on the edge of one of the Finger Lakes most scenic parks, 10 minutes for downtown Ithaca, NY.
The 3 story barn was custom-designed and constructed from local stone and wood salvaged from an 1870’s hay barn. It is both vast and cozy with Tuscan courtyards, inspiring grounds and a fabulous stone cirlce with fire basket for a bonfire end of the night. There are many ways/places to stage your celebration throughout the property.
Facilities and Capacity
The center is yours for full use as a destination weekend from 9 am Friday morning until 2 pm Sunday afternoon. We have found that for couples with family and friends coming in from out of town, having a central gathering place to hold the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception and brunch is ideal. There is a one day /overnight option as well.
There are many ways to stage your event around our vast grounds, front terrace, tree-flanked alley and the 2 large main floors with fireplaces. The first floor is all stone, opening out onto the spacious Tuscan courtyards with water feature. The second floor has a fantastic dance floor with a Steinway piano, great sound and is perfect for a seated dinner for up to 125 folks.
There is a bridal bedroom suite on the third floor (not for large assembly) for the marital couple to stay in for the weekend, and a charming dressing area with theatre lights and mirrors for the bridesmaids to get ready with hair/makeup artists if desired.
We have a unique stretch tent from South Africa that floats over the field and seats up to #150. This is a must for seating over 120 people, but also provides additional staging options for rain or shine.
The building is sustainably built with air conditioning and heat on all three floors. There is a large stage in kitchen for caterers.
The Treman Center knows that professionals do everything best, which is why we provide each couple that books with us a packet with our preferred list of vendors from caterers, photgraphers, musicians/DJ's, and hairdressers to housing options etc. We offer ceremonial ministry for all rites and pastoral duties if desired and the staff is available the length of your stay to support you and your guests with all aspects of the celebration experience. Parking is fully accessible with assistance and an onsite golf cart to transport guests around the property. Basic event planning is included in our services but we offer have preffered addtional event planners available if desired.
The barn was originally built in the 19th century but in 2007 is was purchased by Kevin Reilly, property owner, disassembled and moved in pieces to its current site. The Treman Center that emerged from the planks and beams is a three-story, 6,000-square-foot marvel. Kevin describes it as “agricultural and playful,” authentically assembled with mortise and tenon, post and beam construction. At the same time, it is the epitome of green design, with high-technology electricity, radiant heat, and airtight strength and efficiency.

Uniquely Gorgeous; The Perfect Venue
My Husband and I had a difficult time finding a venue and vendor that spoke to us not only as people but what we value as a couple. When we met with Leslie at The Treman Center, it was as though we were walking into a dream. We left that day, with not only an excitement that lasted our long engagement but with an unexpected friendship with the incredible humans that own the property. Leslie makes you immediately feel like part of her family. She made herself available to us at any time throughout the planning process to every single request, questions and concern. She allowed me to visit the site on several occasions throughout our engagement, just because. She was flexible with last minute changes right up until "I do". One thing that I remember so vividly from our day:Sent on 01/01/2020
"I had realized at the last minute that I had not brought our lavender with me on wedding day for our flowers girls to use. With minutes before the ceremony, Leslie walked out into her beautiful field of Goldenrod surrounding the property and filled our flower girls baskets with homegrown flowers for sprinkling the isle". The gesture and quick thinking brought tears to my eyes.
With Leslie's well rounded experience and her unique vision, she worked with us to create the absolute dream wedding day and best day of our life. To be able to start a new chapter in our life surrounded by woods in a stone garden with a spectacular barn atmosphere was truly something special.
The Treman Center's reply:Thank you Madi for your wonderful review,

Stunning venue for a perfect wedding
We first visited the Treman center on a dreary, cold day in November, and even in spite of the weather we were instantly taken by what a special space this is, and canceled our plans to look at other venues the same day. Leslie is an absolutely amazing person and from our first meeting with her inspired confidence that she would have everything under control and would help out in any way we needed. This fully proved to be the case as our wedding day drew nearer. The actual wedding was absolutely perfect, and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the space was. We were extremely lucky to find such a unique and beautiful venue run by such a kind and caring person.Sent on 07/01/2019

The most perfect wedding venue!
My husband and I got married at the Treman Center in July of last year. From the moment we first arrived to tour the venue to the moment we left after our wedding, Leslie went above and beyond to make our experience exceptional. From providing an extensive vendor list/recommendations, to on-site lodging options and day-of coordination, Leslie did an amazing job. Our wedding day ran so smoothly, all because of her help. Our guests also raved about the beautiful venue and property. It is so beautifully kept and satisfied all of our wedding needs and the pictures turned out perfect. I cannot wait to go back and visit and relive our wedding day. I highly recommend this venue to anyone living in the area or someone looking at a destination wedding. Thank you again Leslie!!Sent on 01/22/2020
The Treman Center Price Rates
The Treman Center was the dream location for our Ithaca wedding in September - between the mountains, the open field, the ceremony spot, and the gorgeous stone patio, we were able to have our entire wedding on her property, with each portion of it feeling unique and lovely. We visited and just got that "this is it!!" feeling in 2016, and spent the next year planning with Leslie and her team. Leslie was an incredible partner - she worked with me to create the perfect vendor team to pull off our rather large wedding on her property. She was flexible, and knows the event scene in Ithaca extremely well, which was ideal for us, since we were planning remotely! The vendors she recommended were incredible, and she doesn't ever recommend anyone lightly. She cares immensely about her property and works hard to make sure that every event there is excellent. I loved that my husband and I were able to stay on the property after the wedding - she even made us coffee in the morning! It was a dream from top to bottom. Thank you, Leslie and the Treman Center staff!
Treman Center is a gorgeous Tuscan style barn with in short distance of Treman and Buttermilk falls in Ithaca. The landscape is amazing and Leslie the owner does a great job with making sure her venue looks like the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding. I have had the pleasure to work with Leslie on multiple occasions and she was very accommodating and professional.
Lovely wedding venue in the Ithaca area!
