Nestled amongst vineyards on a hill above Eden, NY, rests our woodland Garden Grove — perfect for an intimate outdoor ceremony. With stunning views and a nearby field for your tented reception, the grounds provide a timeless, scenic backdrop for your wedding memories.
From the front porch, you can spot Lake Erie on the horizon, and the land itself is surrounded by natural NY beauty at its finest. Enjoy a ceremony under the garden canopy surrounded by old stone walls and the gentle trickle of a waterfall stream in the background. Walk the land and feel the generations of history that surround you.
There are unlimited scenic spots for photo opportunities from the old glass greenhouse, big barn, vegetable fields, or small orchard, to sitting upon the swing beneath large maples lining the drive. Welcome your guests to a place that feels like home. Always graced with a pleasant breeze, this property is uniquely charmed as a magical place dedicated to nourishment - of body, heart, mind and spirit.
