“Thank you very much for providing the most beautiful location and setting for us on our wedding day! We had the most amazing day-from the elegant ceremony under the gazebo, to the orchard hayrides that followed, to the beautiful reception tent and dance floor, to the roaring bonfire that rounded out the most perfect day!”
This is a unique setting amongst woods, trails, apple trees, and wide open space – an amazing escape for your next event.
We can accommodate up to 350 people for a sit down dinner inside the tent – there are additional picnic tables outside that can be used, too.
Both our ceremony and reception sites are nestled among apple trees, white pines, and open space! You’re invited to come out and take a look around.
The orchard is an amazing place for a wedding, reception, or a celebration of any kind. Our North Woods event tent and ceremony site can be reserved from anytime May through November.
Your celebration can be customized with hayrides, bonfires, different food options, group games and activities. The orchard is just 20 miles outside the Twin Cities, yet you and your guests can enjoy the country fresh air.

Branden and I are so happy we chose your location, everything really turned out better than we’d imagined. It was just perfect, and beautiful, like something out of a magazine. And we have gotten rave reviews from our friends and family too! You and Craig were very easy to work with, and the day went so smoothly. I didn’t worry at all about logistics during the day, and that’s saying a lot.
Kristin and Branden Duncan
You, your husband, and your entire crew made our day extremely special and memorable. You all really worked especially hard after the big storm came through to still let us be married outside! I felt like you communicated very well with us throughout our planning process and were very quick to get back to any of our questions.
