We have three huge connected Nordic Tipis with an elevated hardwood dancefloor, hand built poplar banquet tables, an indoor stage, and staging areas for both buffet, sit down catering, and bar service.

On our outdoor ceremonial stage we have erected a naked tipi covered in fairy lights with aisle seating consisting of long cedar benches for an authentic woodsy wedding experience.
