Let's Talk Details

A barn wedding venue that shows off northern Michigan's beautiful landscape

With multiple buildings offering classic, rustic charm and crisp facades, you can create the feeling of a small village at Cherry Basket Farm. Between the historic barns, courtyard, open fields and orchards beyond—a variety of locations offer distinct gathering spaces that can be seamlessly connected—an invitation to flawless event design.

 

Also on site are gardens, paths to the spring-fed pond, accessible restrooms, dedicated catering areas, guest drop-off points, parking, and orchard views.

Having differentiated spaces throughout the property for different parts of the day made it feel like a story.

courtyard cocktails
 

Guests enjoy mingling in an intimate setting at the center of the farm: a beautiful space that inspires conversation. With lawn chairs, a bar, cocktail and bistro tables provided, all that remains is inventing your own signature cocktail.

With scenic views to the fields and orchards beyond, our flat, grassy tenting site is the ideal location for games and photos. Guests can mingle and explore before meeting under the tent for dinner. There's plenty of room for guest lists up to 150.

quiet escape

We encourage all couples to take a few minutes just for themselves on their big day. Once a roadside farm stand, this sweet outbuilding is now a quaint spot for pre-ceremony preparations and post-ceremony reflection.

rustic lower barn 

A beloved flex-use space, the farm’s original 1890s barn offers classic, stone-inspired rustic charm that links our central courtyard to the Main Lawn, fields and orchards beyond. The multi-purpose space is used for cocktail hours, private dinners, elopements and ceremonies for up to 80. An internal stairwell connects this atmospheric space with the Upper Barn above.

historic upper barn 

The centerpiece of the farm is the gorgeous gable roof barn built circa 1910. This white timber-framed barn with stunning vaulted interiors has hosted dances, concerts, wedding receptions, and ceremonies for generations, helping create the standard for beautiful barn events. Inside, restored floors and vintage signs capture the charm of a time past, while also featuring modern updates. The space can accommodate dinner and dancing for up to 100.
