The Wildwood farmstead
Our third generation family farmstead was named the Wildwood Barn & Cottage to describe and reflect on the uniquely wooded barn retreat complete with a cottage for our couples to use as a prep space for their day and overnight stay.
The farmstead is located on 35 acres and tucked away in the woods full of maples, pines, oaks and everything in between. Wildwood provides an idyllic setting to get away from it all and celebrate your special day. We provide the cottage, not only as a space to "get ready" the day of your wedding, but as a place to rest and retreat before and after your magical day. The cottage, barn and buildings are all part of the entire experience.
Our mission is to provide a beautiful and memorable outdoor venue to our wedding and special event guests by preservation of our original cottage, barn, milk house, outbuildings and even the little outhouse all accompanying our exclusive collection of family heirlooms and antiques.
We are members of the National Barn Alliance and connected to a community of local and national resources in pursuance of continuing maintenance for our century old barn and farmstead. In addition, we are members of our local community Business Association. The farmstead is of great importance to our family and we have a passion to preserve the original character of the barn and farmstead to provide new use as a venue within historical context.
In honor of every couple's marriage, we purchase and plant a native tree directly on the Wildwood farmstead. This simple tradition is symbolic of the the first owners of the farmstead (Frank and Else) for their love of trees. We are thankful for all our past, present & future couples for surrounding the venue with love and helping us maintain the original look and feel of the Northwoods by the tradition of planting trees. We are happy to offer an eco-conscious space where “one use” wedding decor is not necessary. Our inventory of vases, fabrics, signage and more is available to every wedding couple, at no additional cost. We also provide the tables, chairs & more for every wedding at no additional cost in order to reduce unnecessary travel for rentals. Our venue is designed for everyone to enjoy!
We strive to offer a boutique Wisconsin wedding venue experience. We hope you love the idea of coming to the countryside, settling in before your special event, and making Wildwood your home for the entire duration of your event with family and friends.
