We are so happy we found this little known gem as part of the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation board. The site was perfect for the intimate type of setting we wanted to create for our guests. My husband and I both loved the beautiful stone, hardwood floors, exposed wood beams and tall ceilings that this space had to offer. When we first looked around, we immediately knew that was where we wanted to have our wedding reception! Perfect for our September wedding, the trees around the golf course were just starting the change color, and the weather cooperated so our guests were able to mingle on the balcony/porch during cocktail hour. We also loved that they have open fire pits, set up out on the porch. We brought our own firewood and had the fires going during the evening when the sun went down.Sent on 10/08/2014
Our contact for the space was Mike Baker, he was so nice and friendly especially with questions about coordinating the set-up and when we could get into the space to decorate etc. He was so easy to work with and upfront about when the space would be cleaned and turned over from the event the night before so we knew exactly what we were walking into. He also knew our catering company (Three Sons) very well so we had a lot of confidence that everything would be running smoothly the night of our wedding.
We would definitely recommend this space for couples looking for a more intimate wedding reception, tucked inside Theordore Wirth Parkway on a golf course but without the standard golf clubhouse appeal. Another plus, it was perfectly within our budget!! The place has beautiful ambiance, lots of character for a Chalet type feel with added bonus for outdoor appeal on the deck. Call the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board to book ahead of time!

This venue was beautiful, the staff helpful and professional, and they were very flexible in working with our team of vendors. The only "complaint" I could have was that sometimes it would take a while to hear back about things, but that was only a problem to me and my OCD. Everything worked out and was lovely.Sent on 11/18/2013

The staff at Theodore Wirth was good to work with, though there are some limitations. I appreciated that they were able to offer 2 golf carts, free of charge, for our use that day: it made it much simpler to get back and forth from Wedding Hill.Sent on 09/12/2014
The biggest disappointment was that, despite prior arrangements, the Chalet staff failed to clear the tables from the Fireplace Room to makes room for dancing. My family and guests had to clear the floor instead.
Besides that, the space was great! The ceiling has only 2 points of securing attachments, so we had to abandon plans for hanging drapes and strings of lights. That wasn't a problem, though, as the built-in lighting was more than sufficient for our purposes.
Parking was also abundant by the Chalet, which was a great help.
