Lovely place for a wedding
Sep 01, 2013 by: WLifeMan from Tampa
Our wedding took place on July the 4th weekend which is a very busy time to have a wedding we found out, but Rebecca and others went our of their way to make sure our wedding was extra special. We arrived at 8am before the wedding at 10am and to our delight there were deer on the property, a perfect setting for our wedding as we really enjoy wildlife. As guests arrived, some as early as 9am, Andrew, the staff on duty was excellent in helping get them situated as we were getting ready for the wedding with the minister. We had the wedding on the veranda which provided a lovely back drop, looking out over the property. The only negative was that by 10, it was getting rather warm outside and the fans had to be turned on, which mean hearing the ceremony was difficult for some of our guests. Looking back, now I wish we had planned it for 9am instead of ten, but hindsight is always better than foresight!
Lovely garden setting

Beautiful location for a wedding! Wedding was in the garden with lunch on the patio of the house. Many flowering trees added to the beauty of the setting.
Great place to spend a few hours

We like to picnic here often, and hike. Always deer around. Great photo ops. Take your trash with you.
A local treasure

Live less than a mile away from this local treasure, a very large parkland site that is worth visiting, including a shop with a terrific amount of nature-related items.
Another wonderful oasis of greenery in the urbs

Woodend seems small yet is remarkably diverse--lots of lovely areas and settings, a variety of plants, a neat shop, a neat old building. And unless a school excursion is there, it rarely seems busy..
