What a wonderful place for a wedding or event. The grounds are expertly kept. If you're looking for a unique outdoor wedding venue.. this place is for you. HOWEVER.. I found the head of maintenance to be one of the most un-accommodating and condescending individuals ever. The owners are also incredibly un-accommodating, selfish and god help you should anything break on their property while you're there. They'll treat you like criminals and add un-needed stress to your special day rather than providing you with the unmatched and unrivaled customer service and accommodations they should.
