Welcome to Our Wonderland
Our Wonderland of an event venue was founded in a blend of passion and vision for creating a space for celebrations that would be beyond everyone’s wildest dreams. This devotion-filled project began with the loving restoration of the 22-acre property’s existing 1891 Queen Anne style Mansion. Meticulous care went into preserving the historic charm of the building while updating the spaces with a luxurious modern European-inspired style.
In order to serve our local community’s need for a unique reception space fit for all kinds of celebrations, the project’s second phase included new construction of over 6,500 square feet of brand new event space. Our property’s new addition spaces have been named, The Willows.
We are honored to share our wonderland with you and your guests!
Built in 1891, our Victorian Queen Anne style mansion boasts 5 bedroom suites and 7 bathrooms. Featuring rich history combined with modern amenities, luxury and passion run wild within these 7,563 square feet.
Completed in 2021, our addition adds over 6,500 more square feet of indoor space dedicated to producing full-service events. The addition features our crystal dining room, Grand Sperry Reception Tent, main entry corridor, and our commercial kitchen.
