Weddings facts

The venue building has two adjacent sections of approximately the same size.

The first section is a reception area, leading to a cocktail lounge with fireplace, and restaurant with bar that can comfortably seat 120 guests. There are male and female bathrooms.

The second section is a carpeted hall that can seat 150 guests.

Both sections, being next to each other, have wooden sliding doors and windows on the northern side facing the massive mountains. Through the sliding doors, the adjoining wooden decks are large and have the same floor surface area as that of the entire inside of the venue. There are three thatched gazebos. The deck and gazebos can be used for ceremonies. At the end of the wooden decks, steps lead you down via a boardwalk to the gardens, cultivated pastures, farm dam and forest, all suited for those perfect photo settings.
