I am so grateful that I found this beautiful venue at the time that I did. I had originally booked my indoor wedding for the end of September 2020 but because of COVID19, that had to be adjusted. Oasis fell into my hands at the most stressful time of my life. I always wanted an outdoor wedding and my dream came true. The venue is absolutely stunning and the pictures do NOT do it justice. All my guests including the officiant were in love with it and couldn’t believe I found it. I had an intimate wedding with 100 people, just close family and friends and it was absolutely perfect. Barb was super helpful and kept me organized during the process and helped tremendously on the wedding day. They also provide tons of free loan items which I utilized. I have nothing but good things to say about this place except be prepared to do a lot of work unless you’re hiring staff. This is not a banquet hall and everything including food to drinks to table setup etc. needs to be done externally. Although we enjoyed the wedding, my family of 8 was working nonstop. The only regret I have is not hiring more wait staff!Sent on 18/09/2020
Oasis Country Retreat's reply:Rooba, this is a stunning reminder of why we exist. Your family and friends turned our backdrop into a spectacular setting and you had fun doing it. Weddings are about family and the time you spend together. This has been a difficult year for everyone, and you conquered it!

Wedding of our dreams!
Our wedding dreams were ruined when our original venue screwed us over with just two weeks left to our wedding date. Two years of planning down the drain. But everything happens for a reason. We chose this venue to plan our new wedding and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! With 100 guests fitting comfortably under tents outside we were surrounded by beautiful nature, willows, a pond and even a cute bridge. Not only is the venue filled with many photo opportunities but it is so unique it truly gives you that elegant country style. As for Barb the venues manager, we cannot thank her enough for all her hard work and amazing help! Barb was more like a wedding planer than a manager. We could text/call at any hour of the day and she responded ASAP. She was extremely helpful day of wedding, always present and whenever needed quick to help. Words cannot describe how happy we were with the venue. We only wish we found The Oasis Country Retreat sooner!Sent on 03/09/2020
Oasis Country Retreat's reply:Thank you for your kind words. You and Jesse were under so much stress, yet you pulled together and created a wonderful wedding experience during difficult times. Congratulations to you both and to your friends and family who helped make your day special. It was an honour to be a part of your wedding.

Not anti lgbtq
I would just like to address the "anti lgbtq" comment from a previous post. The venue itself is owned by the Roman Orthodox Church... so due to that fact, whatever takes place on the property needs to follow the cultural association guidelines. That being said, Barb did tell us (and LGBTQ couple) that we could request permission from the Bishop as to weather or not we could have an event there. So it is not up to Barb (the event organizer that you deal with, she is lovely), it is up to The Church. Not that I agree with it, but it is not my place to cause an uproar on a religion that I am not a part of.Sent on 01/05/2021
Oasis Country Retreat's reply:Thank you for your review, Cindle and Ashley. I appreciate your gracious words and kind understanding. May you both continue to seek light and peace in times of deep darkness.

My wife and I have mutual friends that also looked at the venue. The place is very nice, and the people are also great. But our friends were told that because of there sexual orientation they would not do business with them.Sent on 29/10/2019
Oasis Country Retreat I cant do business with you because of that.
Oasis Country Retreat's reply:Hi Paul. I appreciate your concern. Perhaps your friends failed to mention that we are incorporated under the laws of Ontario and that our Articles of Incorporation legally bind us. Hopefully they also mentioned that I reached out to help them connect with a friend who has influence with several public venues. We also have had a number of LGBTQ guests and have created a non-gender specific washroom for them when requested. We believe all people should be treated kindly and with respect, no matter their age, gender, orientation, or religious (or non-religious) affiliation.
