What we would like you to know about our venue before you arrive

  1. Our Stable has little concrete. We have gravel pathways, a sandy area around the Horse Ring bonfire pit, and rolling grassy areas. Wedge shoes likely are better than high heels. Inside the lower level of the stable is concrete and upstairs are wooden floors.
  2. Stable typically houses the reception and weddings typically are outside. The Stable is climate controlled and doorways should always be shut as this will keep the air conditioning/heat at an enjoyable climate. Please shut all doors as you come in and out of the building. Most weddings have a touch of elegance to them but consider wearing seasonally appropriate attire.
  3. We have a no-smoking policy in and around the Stable. We strictly enforce this policy.
  4. We have indoor restrooms. There are two downstairs. One for the ladies and one for the gents. They both are handicapped accessible. The lady’s restroom offers a baby changing table. The Upstairs area offers three restrooms. The Brides Suite and the Gentlemen’s Quarters have their own private restrooms. There is also a family style restroom for guests.
  5. The Stable is generally kid friendly, but we are not a playground.  Please have over-sight of your children for their safety and for the sake of our facility.
  6. We do not offer onsite lodging; however, a list of lodging is included in our website for your convivence.
  7. Our Stable is equipped with security and surveillance cameras inside and outside the facility for your safety during your special event. During all events at least one staff member will be onsite to assist your needs.
