The perfect venue!

It is the perfect Hollywood glamour in the country side! Jake, Liz and the team make you feel like absolute royalty, every detail is thought out, staying there is out of a movie. Having a wedding there is magical! We could not recommend enough, the venue is unique and gorgeous and was able to great such different but cohesive experiences for us as a couple and our guests. The location is central but still able to be private and intimate, guests can stay within walking distance easily between the hotels and airbnbs which was a huge plus for us. The team worked super well with our other vendors which was awesome! We had the best weekend of our lives and could not recommend the CAPE enough! Thank you!!!

Stunning venue and incredible team

The team at The CAPE seamlessly turned our wedding vision into a reality. We couldn't be happier with how our day went. With calls for thunderstorms leading up to the day, the team planned not one back up plan, but THREE. They wanted to make sure our day was as close to what we pictured as possible - even in the rain. The service and professionalism was off the charts, and the venue itself is unbelievably stunning. Thank you Jake and team for making our day absolutely perfect!

Dream Wedding Venue

The CAPE is a magnificently beautiful venue in the heart of Prince Edward County. It has incredible space for weddings beyond just the aesthetic. It's comfortable and classy, not stuffy and old. The amazing staff are committed to curating everything about your stay, not just there to put in the hours, they truly care.

Incredible Event Venue!

Words can not express how beautiful and magical this venue is. It is a destination venue without travelling too far. In the center of the beautiful town of Picton, this enormous mansion has everything you need and more to plan the perfect event. The rooms are grogeous, the reception room is breathtaking, and the food is unbelievable. Michael gave us an incredible tour where we learned the history of the building and instantly fell in love. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who does not want to get married in the city. Although really big, it has an incredibly intimate feel and the CAPE team will do anything they can to make sure your day is perfect! I can't wait to go back!
