Learn About Us

The sound of the waterfall in our 1/3 acre pond provides refreshing background noise to assist in your zen-like setting. We welcome a walk through our natural habitat and see why so many have loved our little paradise on the outskirts of Napoleon, OH. If you long for a change of venue from the traditional church basement, banquet hall or lodge, where beautification and individuality is not a challenge, we encourage you to see the simplicity of natural surroundings and the minimal enhancements necessary to make your day truly one of a kind.
