Is there HVAC?

You bet! Although we're on a farm, the venue is not inside a barn. Our climate-controlled reception building will keep you and your guests cool in the summer and warm during Iowa's bitterly cold winter. 

Are setup and teardown included?

We mentioned we wanted this to be a stress-free weekend for you, right? We'll take care of setting up and tearing down all tables and chairs. If you use any of our rental decor (arches, vases, linens, candles, etc.), we'll handle those, as well. 

What is included with our rental?

Tables and chairs and linens, oh my! Check out our growing list of amenities here.  

Will wedding receptions be held inside the actual farmhouse?

Not quite. The bridal and groom suites are inside the farmhouse, but events and receptions will be held inside the reception hall, which is located just steps away. Couples will have access to the entire property during their rental period, Friday-Sunday. 

did we just become best friends?

Yep!
