Facilities and Capacity
Design the Life You Want offers a spectacular treehouse and cabin complex in the middle of enchanting woodland. The venue’s setting is perhaps its most appealing aspect, and couples can choose to organize an outdoor ceremony. Here, they can exchange vows under the boughs of wizen old trees or in a vibrant green paddock. The property is set on 100-acres of stunning scenery and can welcome small gatherings of up to 30 attendees. After the ceremony, an intimate reception can be held under the cover of an event tent in the fresh air. Furniture, including enough tables and chairs for everyone to take a comfortable seat, can also be provided.
Design the Life You Want offers couples the freedom to celebrate however they see fit. They welcome outside vendors to the venue. The management can provide any information couples need, as well as access to a get-ready space on the day.
Design the LIfe You Want invites newlyweds to extend their big day overnight, and enjoy a mini-honeymoon in the woods. They can choose between the Cabin and the Treehouse, both of which are stylishly appointed. The Treehouse is raised above the forest floor and features a mezzanine bedroom with a private balcony. The Cabin, in turn, is a calming boutique-style setting that includes a cozy fireplace and a small kitchen. There is also a pool on site for guests to enjoy during their stay.
