Whitetail Country Estates provides so much more than just a wedding barn. In addition to our Vintage Barn to celebrate your wedding reception and our Grand Pergola for your ceremony, our facilities allow you a space to host your rehearsal dinner the night before your wedding, or a gift opening brunch the morning after your wedding. Our on-premises lodging allows you to make your wedding a weekend to remember as you host your family or wedding party in our beautiful Bridal Cottage and Whitetail Lodge, instead of spending time traveling to and from hotels or meeting in sterile hotel conference rooms.
Facilities and Capacity
Whitetail Country Estates is a rustic, yet elegant venue with covered and uncovered outdoor spaces, as well as indoor spaces, that can accommodate up to 250 guests inside the Vintage Barn & Corral. The venue is a private destination resort that is nestled in the hills of southeast Iowa in a natural environment, in a one-of-a-kind location. With a timeless Southern Pergola by a Pond with a fountain, couples will have a natural, elegant, and extraordinary backdrop for their special ceremony. The Vintage Barn has a 19th century aristocratic style, and the location includes parking and wheelchair accessibility. For you and your guests, the venue offers on-site lodging in the Whitetail Lodge, which can house up to 27 guests, as well as a Bridal Cottage that includes a salon with six salon chairs and a dressing area for 12 guests for an overnight stay. The Whitetail Lodge is 5,000 square feet and features a wrap-around deck, walkout basement patio, fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, and entertainment and game rooms. Aside from the salon, the bridal cottage has three bedrooms, a bridal suite, a fully equipped kitchen, a dining and living room, and a family room. All facilities are heated and air conditioned. There are public restrooms located near the Pergola by the Pond Ceremony site, and as of May 2018 the Vintage Barn now has brand new beautiful restrooms.

My husband and I are so happy we chose Whitetail Country Estates as the venue for our wedding! Zana, Susie and everyone else were so helpful in planning our special day. They help to make the process as stress free for the couple as they can. The venue is absolutely beautiful. Every single part of it from the pergola to the vintage barn to the bridal cottage. The bridal cottage was extremely nice to have to get ready in and my husband and I stayed there the night of the wedding. Get ahold of Zana to take a tour of this place!

Perfect venue that made my wedding day stress free and amazing
My special day couldn’t have gone any better with the help and support from Zana and her crew! It is a beautiful spot to have a wedding and they try to help in any way. Not to mention the bridal cottage which is a full sized totally redone house that was amazing to have for the bridal party the night before, to get ready on the day of with the salon style set up in the finished basement, and a place for the bride and groom to stay at on their wedding nigh! Highly recommend this venue!
