A separate room is set aside for the bride and her wedding party's needs.  The hall accommodates up to 250 guests.

Lake wedding with boatsOUR LAKE affords a truly stunning and unforgettable backdrop, where your reflections seem to last forever. Guests are comfortably seated along the dam overlooking the lake while the bride and groom exchange their vows on the dock with their family and bridal party surrounding them. This picturesque location accommodates wedding parties up to 100. Zip back over the spot where you got married later in the day or save that adventure for your first day as a married couple!

OUTSIDE THE HALL there is a grassy area surrounded by woods, perfect for setting up a gazebo or rent our wedding arch. An intimate location for the cozy, small wedding ceremony, providing a great view of the foliage yet provides close access to the restrooms and hall facility.

OUTDOOR SHELTER/STAGE will accommodate large wedding parties. The Stage is surrounded by beautiful Brown County forest and is a favorite location for outdoor weddings. Should your plans for an outdoor wedding be interrupted due to the weather, your wedding ceremony can easily be moved into the Harvest Hall. 


Receptions are most commonly held in our heated and air conditioned Harvest Hall, comfortably seating over 200 guests. Built in the style of a barn but decorated with authentic Impressionistic paintings by the acclaimed Brown County artist Patricia Rhoden and Brown County antiques, Harvest Hall is the ultimate location for a true country reception with a touch of class.

“Wedding Weekend Fun!"

We got married here, and the people are absolutely phenomenal. From our first trip here in January to book our wedding, through the months to follow adjusting answer and rentals, everyone was helpful and kind. While we stayed, we did a zip line tour and it was so much fun! The staff did a great job making sure everyone was properly informed and felt safe through the whole tour. We rented several cabins for our stay, they were all appropriately clean, bathroom facilities also clean and stocked. All appliances provided worked well. 

The day of our wedding, the staff yet again exceeded our expectations. They shuttled some of our elderly guests back to the ceremony site, allow with campers nearby and kept them quiet and respectful, shut down the road that went past the ceremony site, then shuttled guests ball to the hall for the reception. They allowed us to clean up and get the last of or things the next day without charging another days rental and were again, amazingly friendly and helpful. We were so thankful for all the hospitality and kindness during what could have been a stressful weekend, because with their help we had a fantastic wedding, reception and weekend! Highly recommend for entertainment or gatherings! | Reviewed September 2016

“Great place for an off the beaten path wedding”
My fiancé and I chose Harvest Hall/Explore Brown County for our wedding-we wanted something different from the standard ballroom route and this location was perfect for a fall wedding. The staff was helpful when we had questions and issues. The one recommendation I would make is to have an assigned coordinator for events, which might alleviate asking multiple employees the same thing. We had many compliments from guests about the facility and several also mentioned returning for zip lining & paintball. The prices were very reasonable and with free reign (within reason) to decorate to our liking, I would highly recommend this location for couples looking to have a beautiful wedding on a budget.| Visited October 2015 | Alaina, Indianapolis, IN
“Amazing Wedding Reception…Exceptional Staff!
Our Daughter had her Wedding Reception on May 9th, 2015 at The Harvest Hall located inside the Explore Brown County Grounds. It could not have been a better experience. Everyone from the Owner Gary to the employees, Chris and Neal ,ET. were so helpful and so nice. They worked with our catering company and DJ, which gave us so much peace of mind while we were at the actual wedding ceremony. They are true professionals and The Harvest Hall is a gorgeous venue for a rustic wedding or as I call it "Rustic Elegance" ...If you book this place you will not be disappointed! Many of our guests rented cabins on site which made it very handy and everyone could enjoy themselves and not have to worry about driving. This place is a cool find and I would use it again and again for other functions! Thanks Gary and Staff for everything, you're the "BEST". Reviewed Trip Advisor - June 5, 2015
