Maple Lane Haven is a countryside wedding venue nestled in Huron East, Ontario. The property features a sophisticated yet rustic barn that welcomes weddings held in any season.

Facilities and Capacity
Vow exchanges at Maple Lane Haven can take place in the outdoor ceremony spot. This area’s gazebo and waterfall give it a sense of romance and whimsical charm. Adjacent to this ceremonial space is a pond enveloped by an iron rod fence. A fountain gurgles from the center to create a tranquil ambience. From here, couples and their loved ones can move to the classic red barn, which serves as the main event space. It was built in the mid-1800s and has hand-hewn pine beams that give it a memorable character. Attached to the barn is a wrap-around patio where individuals can take in the surrounding water features and gardens. The barn has been fully refurbished to provide modern comforts, including climate control. Its seating area and stone fireplaces are among the details that make it an inviting space for people to gather and celebrate.
Maple Lane Haven features numerous amenities to make it a functional space. The paths are all well lit and there is a paved parking lot for the guests’ convenience. The staff provides access to two dressing rooms as well. Couples can also use the venue’s round tables, upholstered chairs, and linens to get the space set for the event. Bar services are also included in event packages. The barn features an area for the DJ and a dance floor, ensuring a lively soiree. The couple can also use the high-quality sound system, ideal for toasts and ambient music. Only one event is held at this barn venue per day and a team of support staff works with you throughout the event to ensure that the gathering runs smoothly.

A Hidden Gem!
Planning our day was simple and pricing was straightforward. We chose maple lane haven because it is a fully inclusive venue. With their own bar staff, liquor license, chef, commercial kitchen, tables, chairs (indoor &outdoor)…. Planning was easy because most of the to-do list was taken care of. We were also very impressed by all of the items Miriam had on hand and offered for our use (table numbers, door for seating chart, linens, antique table, etc). This meant we really only needed to bring our flowers and our guests!
Miriam was also very accessible by phone and email. She also let us stop by to visit more than once in the planning process to get to know the grounds and the venue. As a visual person this was very helpful to me.
The venue is aesthetically breathtaking with perfectly manicured gardens and thoughtfully chosen lighting, decor and furniture. Our guests loved snapping their own photos by the waterfall and gardens and under the gazebo.
Chef Brian is an absolute treasure to have in a rural venue. He delivered incredible tasting fine dining and managed dietary needs with ease while still delivering a hearty meal that satisfied even our hungriest guests. This is not your average “catering”. Chef Brian produced top restaurant quality food. Our guests raved it was the best meal they’d ever had at a wedding and we agree it was a 10/10
The bar staff were speedy and very friendly! They mixed our signature cocktails perfectly and nailed every request made by our guests.
The serving staff were very attentive and ensured our guests were taken care of. They specifically checked in on our guests with dietary restrictions and ensured they received top notch service. We appreciated the extra care taken for safe food handling for our guests with allergies.
Leading into the day I was concerned that we were the 2nd wedding happening that weekend and I wondered how all of the preparations would get done in time. When we arrived Saturday mornings to start getting ready the place was spotless. Tables set and arranged exactly how we had asked, bathrooms and floors sparkling, and the bar fridges fully stocked. My concerns were immediately put at ease — and for a type A bride, that’s saying a lot! lol
Miriam and Joe were very kind and welcoming to our guests. Joe drove our grandparents down to the ceremony site to save them walking down the steps. He also found umbrellas to shade them when the sun was heating things up. We really appreciated him caring for our family& friends as if they were his own.
Miriam, I am still not sure how you find the time and energy to pull off back to back weddings on a weekend, but you made it look easy. Never once were any details missed or forgotten. And we truly felt like everything was a breeze. For us as the bride and groom we had no worries all day (and night) because Miriam and her staff were always 2 steps ahead!
The lodge was an added benefit that we had not anticipated when originally searching for a venue. Having a spot where not only our bridal party could get dressed but also a place for our immediate family and VIP guests to stay was an incredible value to us. We also appreciated having the peace of mind that none of our bridal party needed to drive home at the end of the night. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The bathrooms felt luxurious. We were so glad to have had the opportunity to book the lodge!
We had a perfect day and we would come back and do it all over again in a heart beat. We cannot thank you all enough.
To any couples searching for a country wedding with thoroughly modern amenities—take a tour with Miriam and Joe. This place is a real hidden gem.
The food was delicious. The quests are still talking about it.
