Excellent People to Work With
Johnathan was extremely accommodating for my husband and I. He made sure that we had everything we needed. Johnathan and his staff make everything run as smoothly as possible. I could not have asked for a better place to have our wedding.Sent on 06/17/2019

A Magical Place
We stumbled upon Jonathan's place on Wedding Wire and decided to check it out in person. We we new immediately this was place we wanted our wedding. Norm the ground keeper happened to be on site and made us feel right at home, allowing us to tour the grounds and telling us all about the place. We didn't even look at any other venues. Since then Jonathan and his staf have been such a breeze to deal with, making themselves available to us whenever we need and keeping. We also stayed on site last May which only made us more excited to get married here in August.Sent on 06/20/2019

AMAZING service and perfect location
I would highly recommend Willoughby Haven! Jonathan, the owner, has been wonderful through the whole process! He has gone above and beyond what I could have possibly expected! I have really enjoyed working with him this whole time. I had been considering Willoughby Haven previously and had talked to him on the phone while trying to decide on the venue. After initially really liking the look of it from online, I decided it was a bit out of the way for our guest to travel. My fiance and I had been in the area about a month later and just decided to check it out, out of curiosity. Jonathan happened to be there with his family, he welcomed us in (even though this was a completely unscheduled visit), kindly introduced us to his family, and showed us around. I think many other vendors would have turned us away in this situation but he was more than accommodating. I feel so good about renting the property from him. We instantly fell in love with the place and decided to do it then.Sent on 06/18/2019
