Wow.....we just had our wedding at Heartwood , and we can not RAVE enough about all this AMAZING venue!!!!!!!!!! We decided to spend the extra money to rent out both floors at Heartwood, and boy was it worth it!! We also decided to come in a few days early before the wedding to host fun activities leading up to our big day. Because there was no other wedding there that weekend, our friends, families & guests basically had the entire venue to ourselves, which was so incredibly fun! Our family and friends were blown away by the location's beauty and Heartwood staff's friendliness, and they had so much fun with all the outdoor activities on the property on the days leading up to and after the wedding. People also loved staying at the houses, cabins and cottages, but they definitely booked up fast.

While the venue was beautiful, the Heartwood staff were even better. First and foremost, Karla (the event planner) was absolutely on top of every detail and truly listened to what we were looking for. We were in contact early on with Karla and all that proactive communication really helped the day go so smoothly. On the day of the wedding, things went incredibly smoothly - despite a last minute change of indoor to outdoor ceremony. Further, the manager on call, catering staff, and front desk attendants were always willing to help answer questions or pitch in to help. They even surprised us by wrapping up an extra dinner and dessert for us after the wedding and putting it in our honeymoon suite. Overall, we cannot say enough about this venue and the staff. We can't wait to come back for years to come to celebrate our wedding anniversaries!!!

Our wedding at the Heartwood turned out absolutely perfect! I was a little skeptical at first because I was having trouble getting some of my questions answered, but I think the event planner was newer and I was jumping the gun with some of my questions. As the wedding drew closer, Karla (event planner) was amazing, responsive and always helpful. The Heartwood was flexible with all of our requests and the food was great and we had tons of compliments that the food was way better than typical wedding food. They seemed to really care that our day went as perfectly as possible, which meant a lot to us. Champagne toast was outside and the servers were prompt. Reception was upstairs and was beautiful and did not require much decorating at all. Everything was easy and smooth. We are from MPLS and many guests rented rooms. My best advice is have your guests rent their rooms ASAP, the Heartwood is lovely, and fills quickly. We rented a suite with a hot tub and it was perfect for me to get ready in due to the huge bathroom. We had a duplex as well for the groomsmen to get ready in. Many of our guests said they will be returning with their families and friends they liked it so much. Some had so much fun they requested we do another wedding next year! Thanks to the Heartwood, for making our day more special than we could have imagined.

Could not have picked a better place to celebrate our wedding! The staff were great to us, Amy, Wayne, Robin and even the maintenance personnel truly cared how our day went. Room reservations got a bit confusing at times, but did work out. Amy was so on top of things we didn't even know they needed to be done! Thank you

Coming from a small town where renovations are rare, we found this GEM! Heartwood Conference Center is secluded, beautiful and the staff is GREAT! We had looked at various venues for our wedding, but none topped this place where we could hold the ceremony on the back lawn, hold dinner and dancing and then retire to lodging there as well without traveling. Other venues hadn't changed since my parents and friend's parents had gotten married, but this place looks brand new! Everything was clean, staff was more than accommodating, food was EXCELLENT—corn soufflé is highly recommended! We were blown away at for such a beautiful space how reasonably priced everything was. I would recommend this place to everyone and look forward to going back as a getaway in the near future!

The site is absolutely gorgeous! My husband and I had an outdoor ceremony, and the coordinator was out there working from morning until the time of the wedding. She really kept us organized, which allowed me to worry about getting myself ready, and not other details.
The only downfall I had was that it was difficult to plan the wedding with them from a distance. It seemed as if they didn't experience that often, and they weren't as flexible with that. They always asked if I could drive out there and meet with them about something that could be discussed over email and phone. They didn't always seem to understand I wasn't going to drive 9 1/2 hours to talk for 1.

Amy, the event planner at Heartwood, was extremely helpful and responsive. If we sent her an email, she usually responded within two business days. She and the chef were also flexible when it came to what food we wanted and how we wanted things set up. Most of the receptionists that handled guest reservations were very pleasant and helpful.

Heartwood made our wedding absolutely perfect. The location is beautiful, the amenities are great, and the staff goes above and beyond to make your day absolutely special. They juggle a lot of events at any given time, so communication can sometimes be slow - but everything for our day turned out perfectly. Our event planner and all those we worked with seemed authentically excited for us and invested in making our day the best it could be. They were extremely accommodating. It was a day we will never forget! We plan to go back and visit :)

As a former Wedding Planner, I had a specific vision of how I wanted our wedding to be and Heartwood made it happen!! We wanted a facility that had separate spaces for an indoor ceremony and reception for 130-150 guests, rehearsal dinner, lodging for everyone, was within 3 hours of the twin cities, was reasonably priced and had the decor that would fit with our city girl/country boy design preferences. We looked at 10+ places all over MN and WI and fell in love with Heartwood instantly. The Coordinators at Heartwood were great! They happily accommodated all of my ideas including our Wild Game Station and Pasta Bar Station! They were very collaborative during the planning process and the staff was on hand all weekend to help with whatever was needed. Karla the Event Manager was fabulous!!! The lodging facilities were awesome and very well priced. The hotel rooms are close to the reception room and there are many large cabins available a short drive away that accommodated the larger family groups. Our family and friends had so much fun!! Our group took over the resort and it allowed for a really fun bonding time between our 2 families. Many people commented on how this was the best wedding they have been to in a long time! I would highly recommend Heartwood to any bride!
