The Harvest Hall is a beautifully decorated building located in a Brown County wooded country setting. The inside location is designed to fit everyone’s needs. It is completely heated and air conditioned with a romantic fireplace. A large indoor stage provides the ideal setting for an indoor ceremony if the weather is not perfect for an outdoor wedding. The loft area provides a bird’s eye view, and our wooden staircase with the backdrop gives the bride and her party the perfect, breathtaking entrance. A separate room is set aside for the bride and her wedding party's needs. The hall accommodates up to 200 guests (inside and on the porch). Read more about HARVEST HALL and the amenities that are available.
Our lake affords a truly stunning and unforgettable backdrop, where your reflections seem to last forever. Guests are comfortably seated along the dam overlooking the lake while the bride and groom exchange their vows on the dock with their family and bridal party surrounding them. This picturesque location accommodates wedding parties up to 100. Zip back over the spot where you got married later in the day or save that adventure for your first day as a married couple!
The Outdoor Shelter/Stage will accommodate large wedding parties. The Stage is surrounded by beautiful Brown County forest and is a favorite location for outdoor weddings. Should your plans for an outdoor wedding be interrupted due to the weather, your wedding ceremony can easily be moved into the Harvest Hall.
Outside the Hall there is a grassy area surrounded by woods, perfect for your intimate ceremony. Rent our wedding arch or set up your own gazebo. This cozy location for your small wedding ceremony provides great views of the foliage as well as close access to the restrooms and hall facility.
Receptions are most commonly held in our heated and air conditioned Harvest Hall, comfortably seating over 200 guests (inside & outside). Built in the style of a barn but decorated with authentic, Impressionistic paintings by the acclaimed Brown County artist Patricia Rhoden and other Brown County antiques, the Harvest Hall is the ultimate location for a true country reception with a touch of class.
We are your Adventure Wedding destination…where you can have that once-in-a-lifetime wedding people will be talking about forever, and never forget! Plan a weekend wedding and include our activities for you, your guests, and your families; a great way to bring everyone together! Book a zip line tour, ATV Tour, and a game of paintball when you rent the hall.
