This wedding venue was an absolute dream for us - it had everything we could ask for and more! We went back after our wedding to get golden hour pics next to the water and they turned out with a surreal sense of beauty to them (or maybe it was just my bride, but still). The vendor allowed us to come out several times before our wedding to visualize things at the venue and was flexible to work with. Highly recommend.Sent on 08/22/2019

Day to remember
Everyone at Timber River Ranch was so helpful throughout the whole process! We were able to do site visits multiple times before our special day so we knew where everything was going to go! They were so accommodating to our big family and made sure everyone felt welcomed. We rented the farmhouse for 2 nights and the owners were always there to answer questions or help when needed. They were very personable and helped make our special day an unforgettable experience!Sent on 10/15/2019

Horrible!! Do not use.
DO NOT USE THIS VENUE!! After booking this venue, many things were change that were not discussed with us. The items changed made the venue have a very different look and we would not have booked if it looked like that at our first visit. The owner Ken is extremely unresponsive. He is rude, and he swore at me over the phone. I told him I was not going to be using this venue anymore and he told me to call him back in a week to arrange getting money back and he has not responded to my messages, emails, calls, and texts since. He is extremely unprofessional and deceiving.Sent on 09/20/2020

I have worked with Shannon & Kenny Ray at Timber River Ranch a few times and they are amazing to work for and with. Not only easy to work with, but they have a fantastic venue with an awe inspiring view. Waterfront. Yes. Giant covered reception area. Absolutely. They even have on-site lodging! If you are looking for a rustic wedding venue that also has a waterfront view, I would highly recommend Timber River Ranch!
