“Endless Possibilities”

At Dorsett House we have created 5 beautiful areas for all your Ceremony and Reception dreams, and you don’t have to pick just one! They are all there for you to enjoy and fill with all the things you ever dreamed of having at your Wedding!

The Farmhouse

William B. Dorsett House is a beautiful old farmhouse, built in the 1840’s by William and Lizzy Dorsett and now serves as accommodation for Wedding Parties and Out-of-Town guests and is also the perfect place for the Bride, Groom and Bridal party to get ready. There are 4 bedrooms that can comfortably sleep 12 guests, 3 ½ renovated bathrooms, a spacious dressing room with hair and make-up stations, a fully renovated kitchen, lounge, fire pit, outdoor dining and bar-area. The house is also the ideal setting for Rehearsal Dinners and Bridal Showers or smaller gatherings for up to 50 guests.

The Barn

Our newly renovated,  3 400 square foot Barn includes 2 Custom Bar areas, a spacious Prep area for Caterers, equipped with a commercial fridge, freezer, ice machine and dish washer, Outdoor Cocktail Gardens under festive market lights with Bistro tables and chairs, spacious Restrooms, a Photo Booth, ample on-site parking all surrounded by beautiful hardwood trees and acres of manicured lawn. All indoor areas are Climate Controlled, and the venue is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system and Wi-Fi and Generator back-up power supply. The venue is Handicap Accessible. The Barn can comfortably accommodate 120 seated guests.

The Grand Pavilion

You will love our 1 600 square foot Pavilion with its vaulted ceiling, large timber beams, and beautiful chandeliers. It is located directly in front of The Barn and is ideal for your Ceremony and a great outdoor dance floor. The sound system extends from The Barn and you can turn up the volume for your festive guests without blasting away those guests still seated in The Barn having dinner and catching up with friends and family.

The Deck

The Deck is one of my personal favorite spots at Dorsett House. This magical and very large outdoor area is lit with festive market lights and is the ideal setting for Canapé and Cocktail Hour complete with a cocktail bar, bistro tables and chairs, umbrellas and a fire pit, just in case you feel like spoiling your guests with a S’ mores Station! The Deck is also one of 2 perfect spots to host your Rehearsal Dinner or Bridal Shower.

The Rose Room

The Rose Room is a small and intimate space, surrounded by white roses and trellis with climbing roses, pretty light fixtures and a lush green lawn. It can comfortably seat 50 guests for a smaller gathering, a Rehearsal Dinner or Bridal Shower. It is adjacent to the farmhouse for easy access to the kitchen and bathrooms and right next to The Deck, the cocktail bar and our very quaint, Saloon-style Whisky & Cigar Bar.

The Old Church

This charming old Church was built in 1887 and moved to Dorsett Farm in the early 1900 where it was used as a bank barn and stables. It stands quietly under majestic hardwoods and is the ideal backdrop for an outdoor Ceremony. We supply a sound system for this area.
