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.

An absolutely stunning and unique venue! The multiple spaces within The Treman Center create an intimate setting for guests with a variety of beautiful backgrounds for pictures. The grounds are immaculately maintained. From the very beginning Leslie was responsive, helpful, and calming. She encouraged us to personalize the space. Her relationships with local vendors really allowed us to plan the wedding of our dreams long distance. The amazing third floor was the perfect bridal suite and night retreat. The ability to rent the space for 3 days allowed us to enjoy the moments leading up to the wedding as well as the day after. We cannot thank Leslie enough her support, professionalism and guidance. You truly have a magnificent venue!

Leslie's wedding planning skills are amazing and her calming, warm people skills put us at ease at all times. Whether it be a phone call, text or just to stop by with our many questions, she was always there for us with a welcoming smile and had great ideas for planning the ultimate wedding day! The Treman Center is a spectacular venue, grounds are beautiful, as well as the character of the inside décor and atmosphere.

Choosing the Treman Center as our wedding venue was the best decision that my husband and I made in all of our wedding planning.
The entire property is absolutely stunning, from the gorgeous architecture and details inside the barn, to the amazing stone courtyard and scenery outside. We loved that we were able to make the space completely unique to us and our vision, and that we were able to enjoy it for both our rehearsal dinner as well as wedding day.
Leslie is like a built-in wedding planner who was super responsive and regularly checked in with us throughout all of our planning and then helped to coordinate every detail of our wedding weekend.

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!
