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.

    Fantastic!

    Whipporwill Hill made our day so special and amazing. Their staff went above and beyond for us trying to help make everything perfect. They did a fantastic job. Anne, the owner, is also very responsive to messages and always tries to work with you on anything she can. A wedding during Covid was a hard one to plan, but they made it so much easier.
