Happenings at the Hill

Love Is in the Air

The question’s been asked, an emphatic “YES” has been exclaimed, and congratulations are in order! After you’ve spread the happy news to your family and friends, it’s time to get down to business. 

We know all about the search for the perfect wedding venue. (It’s why we’re here today!)

  • You want beauty in an intimate setting. A place where your guests will feel welcome and at ease. It’s even better if it feels like you’re getting away, but it’s right down the road.
  • You want to use the vendors you choose, instead of from prescribed lists with words like ‘only’ or ‘must.’
  • You’ve always wanted an outdoor wedding, but know weather happens and need an option for bringing it under cover last minute. 
  • You’ve got a crew of family and friends available to help but you’d rather not have to ask your cousins to shuffle chairs around after the ceremony.
  • Most importantly, you want to relax and enjoy your wedding day and not be made to feel like your date is just another weekend on the venue’s calendar.

If that wishlist sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place.

With our breathtaking views and close proximity to downtown Traverse City, Timberlee Hills is the ideal location for your destination wedding or celebration. 

It’s All in the Details

Whether you’re planning an intimate gathering of 50 or your guest list has grown to 250, we’re proud to host you and your loved ones for your wedding or special event.

Our Venue

Surrounded by the natural beauty of northern Michigan, our outdoor ceremony space offers stunning panoramic views with the privacy you desire. Complete with perennial gardens, a waterfall, and pond, it’s a short walk from the lodge and its ample parking. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, a backup indoor ceremony site is also available.

After you say your “I dos,” it’s time to celebrate. Our recently updated, modern lodge has the versatility to meet the needs of every guest list. For parties of up to 70 people, our fireplace room offers a more intimate gathering spot. Our larger reception space and covered patio overlook the valley and, at a combined area of 4500 square feet, hosts up to 250 guests. If you’d rather keep everything in the fresh air, we can also accommodate outdoor receptions.

What’s Provided

You shouldn’t have to worry about logistics while you’re getting pampered with your closest friends, saying your vows to your partner, or getting down with your nieces and nephews on the dance floor.

Let us handle the basics while you relax and enjoy your big day.
