Representing the ultimate in country elegance, Avalon Hall is truly unique in its sophistication, grandeur, and beauty. Stunning details emerge from the hand-pressed stone floor and oak beamed ceiling to the oak-wainscoting. The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, along with three massive chandeliers and pewter sconces, create a warm and inviting atmosphere for your special occasion. Your guests will find themselves drawn to the second floor mezzanine where they can look down over the festivities or get a drink at Avalon's custom wood bar. The patio below consists of three levels with water features, a fire pit, and koi pond-just a few of its amenities. The tiger wood upper deck allows for stunning views of rolling hills, ponds, and the Mississippi River. Amazing views, outdoor entertainment, pristine interior details and amenities await your special day!

Rackheath House and Gardens
The carefully maintained grounds surrounding Rackheath House, with the Mississippi River Valley as a backdrop, offer a variety of classic garden wedding venues. Whether beneath the shade of two century-old silver maple trees, among the blooms of an English country garden, or on the charming covered veranda,
this estate is the perfect spot regardless of the season for an outdoor wedding fête. Substitute a rock aisle flanked by wooden pews for a garden path lined with flowers and guests seated under the ceiling of a sparkling blue sky. The reception immediately following is only a grassy stroll away on the other side of the flowering cottage rose.
Maximum capacity: 200 seated
The Courtyard and Pavilion
The Courtyard features an expansive barn structure with details for both parties! Gold mirrors and chandeliers add a feminine touch, while gas-fire pits and hand-crafted copper top bars lend a masculine air. Italian bulb lights strung throughout the space bring a Napa Valley feel to The Courtyard. Dripping in Wisteria in Spring, The Courtyard becomes an intimate space for a smaller, private affair in the original space. A custom made harvest table, surrounded by roses and flanked by a wood-fire pit, is perfect for a gathering of hearts and minds.
Maximum Capacity: 200 Seated

The manor was lovingly restored in 2009 and boasts 6 bedrooms, each with its own private en-suite. A perfect place to relax the night of the wedding for the bridal party!
Maximum Capacity: 200 Seated
Overlook and Avalon Meadow
We call it “Vows and Wows”. The Overlook (from which the farm got itʼs name) is a spot unparalleled by any other in the Midwest. This perch, sitting above the Mississippi, is one of the highest points along the entire river, from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. With the charming town of Clarksville, lush farmland, and the rolling hills of the river valley unfolding below, this majestic spot is ideal for the exchange of wedding vows. Your guests will probably want to linger up here, so cocktails following the ceremony at The Overlook may be necessary. The Avalon Meadow is the perfect retreat following a ceremony overlooking the Mississippi. Bordered on one side by a row of cedar trees and on the other by a river view, the Avalon Meadow is grounded by a massive oak tree at one end, and extends up a long uninterrupted lawn to The Overlook. Globe lights strung above seated guests illuminate a notably intimate space at nightfall. Fireflies provide additional ambient lighting on midsummer evenings.
All weddings scheduled with Overlook Farm require a $3500 non-refundable deposit. All other special events will require a deposit of 1/2 of projected final invoice.
