Shuttle service to/from parking area to/from event space

Bar or serving area with refrigeration
Onsite venue manager to answer questions (this is not a “Day of Coordinator”)

We strongly encourage you to book wedding weekend accommodations a year in advance to ensure the entire weekend is available for your use as we book on a first come first serve basis.
Email us at Info@GardensintheGorge.com with your desired date(s) and your total number of guests and we will get back to you ASAP with our availability and rates. We are of course more than happy to answer any additional questions you might have and to show you around the property in person. We can hold a date with no deposit for up to one week before going into contract.
Quickly check your date by reviewing our availability calendar here (on Wedding Wire).
Event insurance is required. We can put you in touch with a local insurance agent who can help you take care of it. Most folks' premiums wind up being between $150-$500 depending on what exactly gets covered.
Amplified music must end by 11pm and festivities in general should begin winding down then. Everyone (including caterers and anyone cleaning up) must be entirely out of Windsor Hall by midnight. Sorry, it's our county’s rule and we like to be good neighbors! Overnight guests plus a handful of others are welcome to enjoy the rest of the grounds as late into the night as they'd like as long as they do not pose a disturbance to the neighborhood.
We have four storybook cottages onsite, each cottage has one queen size bed and one queen size sleeper sofa. Our normal overnight capacity is 16. There is a two night minimum. Your wedding package can either include all of the rooms for two nights OR cottages can be paid for by the individual guests as they book for a rate of $229 per night.
