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.

    A perfect day!

    Wow! Just a beautiful venue. The staff and set-up were spot on! Loved Anne, Morgan Banks, Deanna Hawkins, Alan Trisler, Suzie Abram, Leah Mattis and Benita Deckard. All of these individuals make our wedding perfect.

    It was such a blessing to have Whippoorwill Hill a part of our big day!

    It was such a blessing to have Whippoorwill Hill a part of our big day! Anne and Jeff were such a joy to work with and were so helpful in making our day perfect. (Bonus - they have the sweetest little family!) The venue and property speaks for itself and was perfect. I would highly recommend Whippoorwill Hill to anyone looking for a beautiful venue and an amazing vendor to work with!

    Stunning & Perfect

    When thinking about my wedding day, I can't help but smile about how perfect it was. A HUGE part of the perfection of our entire day was Whippoorwill Hill. The barn and surrounding land is kept in pristine condition, adding to it's already beautiful setting. Anne & Jeff are phenomenal people and so easy to work with. I mentioned I would like for the cows to be seen from the barn, so Jeff made a special trip and herded the cattle up to the lot next to the barn so we could get pictures. I can't recommend this venue enough. It was beyond any expectations I could've dreamed.

    Thank you Paige! You guys were such a pleasure to work with - your entire family. I had to pull Jeff away from your Dad and Jordan. Jeff was thrilled to come call the cows up & I think the pictures turned out beautifully! Wishing you guys all the love and luck in the world!
