About

On WeddingWire since 2017

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.

Best Choice!

Our wedding day was amazing and could not have gone better. When I showed up to set up the morning of, the weather had turned cold but the staff on site was quick to jump in and assist with heaters to get the temp up well before guests were to arrive that afternoon. Whippoorwill was great with answering questions and assisting with table & set up. We had reached out to many chair vendors but Whippoorwill acquired chairs that they would then rent out as well which made using them as our chair vendor such a seamless process. The Chairs were perfect for the setting. The many decorations that the venue has to offer paired perfectly with the setup we were looking for. From the open barn, beautiful ceremony space to the huge pasture that the kids were able to run and play in during the reception we could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. I would highly recommend Whippoorwill Hill for anyone looking to tie the knot.

Great Venue

We would definitely recommend having your wedding here, we loved having ours here! This venue is very beautiful and already so wonderful without needing extra decor. Anne is so great to work with as well. She made everything super easy and wonderful. I especially appreciated the transparency in cost. She puts all the info out there and doesn't try to sell you on a bunch of fluff. They have put a lot of work and heart into this venue and it shows. So thankful we found spot!
