Overlooking the Columbia River on a terraced lawn, we offer a ceremony site, bar/strolling cocktail party middle section, and large reception area for up to 150 guests. We also offer a smaller indoor facility (under 50) with views of the river and a large stone fireplace, available year-round. We rent the house and grounds together as a package to make the whole experience more peaceful and enjoyable!
This grand 1908 summer home offers four spacious guest rooms with queen beds, private baths, fireplaces, river views, and an intimate, comfortable atmosphere. Brides check in at noon on Friday and take over the house. The rentals arrive and the party gets started. Decorations go up and friends arrive for the rehearsal. The bridal party, family and friends stay in the four guest rooms, which sleep a total of eight. Saturday morning dawns with the smell of coffee and the bridal party enjoys views of the windsurfers warming up and a hearty breakfast to tide them over for the day. Caterers arrive, florists arrive and the wedding starts to come together. The bride gets ready upstairs in the Lilac Room surrounded by her entourage and the groom is joined in the wine cellar for a last deep breath with the guys.
Weddings usually take place in the afternoons followed by a cocktail, appetizers prelude to dinner. Receptions are held on the most westerly end of the lawn with plenty of room for dancing and tables and buffets. The music and bar are required to close down at 10 pm per county regulations. The bridal party stays Saturday night as well and again has breakfast together on the deck. Check out time is noon on Sunday.
