About Whippoorwill Hill

Out in Bloomington, Indiana, Whippoorwill Hill is an event venue that’s set on a 130-acre secluded farm that boasts historic architecture. This rustic, vintage venue is busiest from April through November, and plays host to receptions, ceremonies, bridal showers, and engagement parties. On the day of your event, Whippoorwill Hill will have a rep on-site should you need anything.

Facilities and Capacity
The two-story wedding barn (also known as Russell Barn) was originally built in 1892. More recently it was renovated and may accommodate up to 300 people. Overall, your setting options at the working farm are indoor, uncovered outdoor, and covered outdoor spots; the wedding and reception sites are completely secluded. Whippoorwill Hill is not a facility with climate-control options; it’s recommended that couples rent portable temporary heaters in cooler months and opening the larger sliding doors during warmer times.

Services Offered
Among the offerings covered in your wedding package are the solid wood Chiavari chairs that complement the barn’s interior; you’ll get 220 standard American-made chairs come with ivory cushions and then 20 that are bar height for the pub tables. Tables and luxury restrooms are included in the price; these are just two items offered to couples, to hopefully make the event elegant and comfortable while also budget-friendly. Event rentals, liability insurance, lighting, sound and setup are among the event services. Other services include:

  • Aisle markers
  • Centerpieces
  • Chairs
  • Dance floor
  • Furniture
  • Lighting
  • Tables
  • Decor
  • Chair covers
  • Altar/arches


Location
With Whippoorwill Hill, you’ll have the best of both worlds: You’ll be on a secluded plot of land that’s also just six miles from the heart of downtown Bloomington, Indiana. You and your loved ones may also appreciate the close proximity to Fourwinds Lakeside Inn and Marina at Lake Monroe. On-site, there’s parking, including ADA-compliant parking spots; it’s also a wheelchair-accessible location. The location, set away from the hubbub of city center, makes for a great backdrop for your photos; imagine standing with your sweetie and stealing a kiss just before sunset as your photographer snaps away.

    Beautiful venue with a fantastic team!

    Whippoorwill was a fantastic wedding venue with an amazing team to make sure that our day went smoothly. The barn is absolutely beautiful and the surrounding property and fields made for a gorgeous back drop for photos. Anne and her team were there every step of the way, and even months in advance, to make sure that we had everything we needed. Anne had lots of decor and decorations that we were able to use, free of charge, and her team made sure everything was set up exactly where we wanted! I would 100% recommend this venue for its beauty, space, and the amazing team that comes with it!

    Beautiful venue with friendly and helpful owners

    Whippoorwill Hill is an absolutely gorgeous event barn and the farm is stunning! Anne (the owner) is so friendly and helpful, she was so kind and patient with answering my many questions and accommodating our requests. The interior of the barn is gorgeous and the farm is breathtaking. Our wedding photos are so gorgeous with the beautiful backdrops that the farm's natural beauty provides! The location is perfect; close enough to town that it's not an inconvenient drive but nestled enough out of the way that you feel completely secluded and surrounded by nature while you're there. I am so glad that we chose Whippoorwill Hill for our wedding and I am excited to see this relatively new venue become one of Bloomington's go-to wedding locations!

    Perfect Venue

    When my now wife and I first started looking at venues for our wedding, Whippoorwill Hill was one of the first ones we chose to look at. The barn is absolutely stunning and is secluded so that your event is just you and your party, no outside "busy" noise. Anne, one of the venue's owners/operators, was very responsive and SO helpful during the year long duration between us booking Whippoorwill and the day of our wedding. She helped us with everything from suggesting vendors to planning the layout of the barn for the day of. She and her family are truly an added bonus with this venue. Something my wife and I considered before booking any vendor for the wedding is how easy they would be to work with - with Whippoorwill, you hit it out of the park! We had a gorgeous venue and an amazingly beautiful wedding and truly feel like we have made lifelong friends with the owners, as well. If you are looking for a barn wedding in the Indy area, Whippoorwill Hill is absolutely one that you should look into! Great venue, great people, great choice!
