​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​                                     Your Wedding at Ancestral Acres Lodge & Barn

Invite your friends and family to a picturesque rustic wedding on a private estate surrounded by the sounds of nature and the charming beauty of a historic Queen Anne mansion. Our large lawn and private ponds provide a dramatic setting for your wedding celebration in any season.   

Your Wedding Details:
  • The Grounds: Our large lawns are flat, and can easily be transformed into an outdoor ballroom, with a tent and a dance floor for a reception of any size. Wonderful "first look" photo opportunities!
  • Barn weddings: Our nearly 5000 square foot barn can accommodate up to 300 guests for your ceremony and/or reception. (Larger events by special arrangement.)
  • Historic mansion: Sleeps 15 comfortably for your wedding party. The bride may choose her own bridal suite and we'll be sure to make it meet your needs and desires.
  • Gourmet kitchen is perfect for your catered rehearsal dinner or wine tasting with light appetizers.
  • Formal Lodge dining room or Barn is perfect for rehearsal dinners and showers.
  • Indoor ceremony or reception: Recently renovated in 2016, our Lodge's 1800 square foot ballroom is now available for your ceremony and reception. This gabled majestic ballroom will provide the perfect backdrop for up to 80 of your friends and family.

Barn Weddings and Receptions
We have just completed the process of transforming our nearly 5000 square foot barn into a charming and rustic event space which accommodates up to 300 seated guests. (Larger events by special arrangement.)  The barn features a freshly painted white interior and red exterior, twelve large doors, thirty-two skylights, twelve grand chandeliers, and ten 7-foot windows. It is a truly remarkable space; the inside is a blank canvas for your dream wedding décor and the open pavilion architecture surrounded by our beautiful woodland and pond scenery brings the outside in! In inclement weather, or at night, the barn doors can be closed to make it a more comfortable and completely sheltered venue. 


Wedding Party
The six bedroom mansion with four modern bathrooms  graciously accommodates your wedding party or family. With two parlors, a formal dining room, eat in gourmet kitchen, and four modern bathrooms, your immediate family and friends  will have ample space, if they wish to stay here. Whatever your needs, we'll try to make it happen.​​
Our  majestic Queen Anne mansion and its large back yard and pond provide a dramatic venue for your wedding celebration, in any season. Recently renovated in 2016, our 1800 square foot, two story, ball room is now available for your event, should the season require an indoor ceremony. Make your wedding memorable and unforgettable at Ancestral Acres Lodge!

Catering and Private Chefs
Ancestral Acres Lodge allows you to choose your own caterer or private chef team to prepare dinner and refreshments for your guests staying at the Lodge. The modern kitchen is perfect for preparing meals for smaller groups. We are also BYOB, so you are free to bring in your own wine, beer, and liquor for your celebration. With the formal dining room and two parlors, you and your guests can enjoy the intimate nature and grandeur of the bygone Victorian era. If you prefer not to cater, another fun option would be to host a 'tea party' with light appetizers.  
We provide a beautiful backdrop for your rustic, outdoor wedding. The surrounding nearly 450 acres of our nature preserve provides many unique"first look" photo opportunities to capture the elegance of your day. Near dusk, the natural light of the sun setting on our property is radiant and the reflections in the pond are truly magical. It will be picture perfect!
