The facility is rented for the 12 hour day from 11am – 11pm (unless otherwise specified). Rental times include setup and cleanup.

Indoors we have a beautiful front tavern room that has rustic feel with beautiful wooden bars, tables and vintage lights. We also have 15 outside wooden tables with benches, two bathrooms tiled with stone slate as well as friendly on sight staff to answer questions, needs or concerns.

With the addition of being a café, this venue has the ability to serve your guests espresso drinks. What a nice touch for your event to end dinner and dancing with a warm cup of local coffee or tea served by our facility crew! This feature to our facility is something that you can add to your contract for an additional rental and service fee.  

We also offer two small rooms with a beautiful bathroom for either bride or groom and his or her wedding party, for an additional fee. This also features a back room - a perfect spot to relax before the ceremony and as well as opens out onto the deck.

With various rustic and vintage décor, our indoor facility adds that touch of historic beauty to your event. From old wooden wine barrels to the dash of old metal saws, stained glass mine lamps, and old historic printed town photos, this venue brings alive a very unique countryside character with its decoration.

Our outdoor facility features a beautiful grassy yard that sits on the clear green moving water which looks toward Mt. Index. The yard is big enough for both a reception and ceremony. There are various plants, herbs, trees and flowers that are placed throughout the garden beds that bring life and color to the property.

We have solar lights to light the walk ways. There is availability to a stunning wrap-around deck which is lit by beautiful white party lights along the railing to add a soft warm feel. These lights are also dangling elegantly over the yard for a beautiful night reception of dancing and fun.
