WELCOME TO THE HARTMAN

The Hartman is a fantastic multi-purpose space that can be used for weddings, private dinners, meetings, conference spaces, workshops, talks as well as parties.

The Hartman provides a unique setting, a combination of the original church structure framed by modern architectural modern decor and white walls. Its high ceilings, original details, a gothic glass window and fascinating history provide a wonderful atmosphere. The clean gallery walls create a modern feel which creates the perfect blank canvas for your event. It seats 55, with standing room for 75, but is equally suitable for smaller groups. Adjacent to the nave is the annex which has been recently renovated to provide overnight accommodations or is a perfect break out space, reception or refreshments area.

The private Garden is the perfect addition to any event needing external space. Whether a reception for a summer wedding, an evening drinks party or simply an area for those guests wanting some fresh air, but still involved with the party. This space is also the perfect space for a TENTED garden party for guests up to 120.

Another unique component to the Hartman is the BNB spaces. Here at the Hartman we have incorporated accommodations for our guests to enjoy. The MAIN space, sleeps 7, on the upper level contains 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, perfect for a pre wedding evening for brides and her brides maids, bridal suite for the day of or evening accommodations for after party. The GUESTHOUSE, sleeps 5, is a private getaway located in the back portion of the church, used to be the church hall, and is a self contained private cottage-like bnb. This is the perfect spots for a honeymoon suite or extra accommodations for guests.

    Beautiful Venue

    The Hartman was exactly what we were looking for in a venue. It is an absolutely beautiful space. Sandra and her husband Alex are very friendly and they truly make you feel welcome and at home. We had a intimate ceremony inside the venue and a beautiful tented reception outside in the garden. Email correspondence was at some points unorganized but most of our questions and concerns were answered during our in-person meetings. They really do offer the entire wedding package and can cater to so many different needs. The Hartman is a beautiful unique venue that has so much to offer. If you want a wedding that is anything but cookie-cutter you should definitely check out the Hartman!

    Worst experience with a venue I have ever had.

    For context, I have run hundreds of corporate events all around the world and the experience with The Hartman is the worst I have ever had. We did a site visit 7 weeks ago, spoke about what we were looking for, and gave a budget. For six weeks we chased them; called, emailed and even stopped by and left written notes about how we needed to finalize the verbal cost and outline in writing. After chasing them for six weeks they came back with a budget three times what we had told them we were working with. The cost is not in line with market pricing, their attitude is unprofessional, and the way they handle their business is horrendous. Would not recommend to anyone for any event.
