Hospitality Suite

The Cottage

INTRODUCING ✨The Cottage ✨. This space was newly finished in 2023. The Cottage is your comfortable, quiet sanctuary for your wedding party to relax and prepare in style. This stunning hospitality suite is a stand-alone chalet, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the big day. The space offers four salon-style getting-ready stations, chic seating with velvet couches, a room divider for dressing, heat, air-conditioning, and a charming walk-out porch with two bistro sets. The Cottage is the picture-perfect suite to prepare for your wedding day.

The Silo

Our lower level also includes our private hospitality suite. The silo is the perfect space for finishing touches while getting ready, hiding before the ceremony, and signing your marriage certificate after the deed is done! This VIP space boasts chandeliers to match the atmosphere of the Great Room Loft, a gorgeous high ceiling, a vanity mirror, a whiskey barrel and a whimsical collection of décor.

Two Beautiful

Ceremony Locations

If you choose to have your wedding ceremony on-site, we are happy to offer two different and beautiful ceremony locations! The first is our Great Room Loft, and the second is our outdoor location near Staring Lake Park. This location allows you to have your dream outdoor ceremony underneath a canopy of trees. We know Minnesota weather can be unpredictable, which is why we can easily shift the ceremony indoors in the event of poor weather conditions on your big day!

The Great


Celebrate outdoors in Staring Lake Park with its lush trees and trails! The park provides a beautiful, picturesque backdrop for event photos. Our custom-built wood burning four-sided brick fireplace invites your guests to sit down and enjoy the crackling fire in the evening. Old fashioned pavers, classic John Deere tractors, a horse drawn carriage, and a custom-built hayride with cow benches add whimsical fun. Add a s’mores package to roast marshmallows over the Cowboy Cauldron’s open fire pit! In the evening, the barn glows with exterior theatrical lighting in a variety of color options that you can choose from!




Parking Lot

We are proud to offer a well-lit on-site parking lot with space for up to 60 vehicles. Events with more than 60 vehicles or 120 guests will require a valet or shuttle service at the client’s expense. Overflow parking is available through a valet or shuttle service at Elliot Aviation and Hummingbird Aviation. We do not allow overnight parking on-site. One of our favorite hotels, the Sonesta Select, partners with Renee’s Limousines and offers Green Acres clients a tiered system where clients can get a discount on their limo rentals depending on how many rooms are booked at the hotel! We see many couples use this route to safely transport their guests. We also know that Uptown Valet offers a very affordable price!
