The Space

Breakwater is set on Over 600 acres of pristine wildlife

The features of the space are too many to list and truly must be experienced in person. A unique paradise for outdoorsmen and women, lovers of nature, or those looking for a proper country wedding. 

The Breakwater space is located in a reclaimed and refurbished barn with a custom and modern interior with barn-style touches. Inside you'll find an island bar and large event space with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a pristine 50 acre spring-fed lake. Outside you'll find a wrap-around outdoor bar space (The Point) that extends out onto the water, fire pit area, a beach, and beautiful rolling lawns with plenty of space for any sized event or tent you may want. 

Breakwater is packed full of unique taxidermy. Guests are continually looking up as soon as they enter to marvel at the Elk, Wolf, Turkey, Deer, Buffalo-even a Hippo-located throughout the space.

Breakwater itself can support up to 175 guests indoors (125 seated) and there is unlimited outdoor space for tents or outdoor weddings.

There is ample asphalt parking adjacent and valet services available upon request. 

There are no food restrictions and very flexible alcohol options.  

Ceremonies can be hosted anywhere--on our sandy beach, by the water, in the woods, in a cornfield, or of course, in The Ranch itself.

Want to do fun stuff? We can set it up. Our lake is stocked with trout, bass, musky, and panfish. Our shoothouse, 4 shooting ranges, and dozen electric clay throwers will keep any gun fanatic busy, and our 1500 foot long zipline is perfect for a wreck-the-dress afternoon.

Our 360 degree island bar can tended by our staff at your request and filled with your preferred alcohol, beer, and wine. However, we only allow open bars at this time.
