Mapleside Farms is our 122 acre fruit farm and apple orchard. It was started in 1927 by the Eyssen family and the incredible landscape now sits virtually unchanged for the past 200 years. With 50 mile panoramic views to the west it’s no wonder it was voted “America’s Most Beautiful Farm” just a few short years ago. We’d love to host your wedding or special event out at the farm and create a memory that lasts a lifetime. We’ve recently partnered with “A Taste of Excellence” to provide a wide range of culinary plated landscapes which will have your guests remembering the wonderful food and beverage experience for years to come.

My fiancé and I were limited on time when picking a venue as we are planning our wedding from out of state. We specifically flew home for one weekend to find a wedding venue. With that, we had narrowed our venue down to our top 2 choices, visited the first, reserved the date there, then went to Mapleside. We fell in love with it! I had asked prior to the visit at Mapleside for a detailed spreadsheet of the cost which they could not provide. Then at the venue I asked about the cost of the rental space which they told me was $4,000 and then I specifically asked if there was a catering minimum which they told me no. I even asked them while I was there for a break down of the cost once again. Karen, the women in charge, gave me the Taste of Excellence generic catering menu which did not list any catering minimums. Later, when I called back, I asked again about the cost I was reassured by Karen that there was a $4,000 minimum and that she could get me out the door with rentals and catering at $100 - 110 per person. With that, My fiancé and I dropped our reserved date at the other venue and decided to go with Mapleside. It wasn't until my fifth phone call (mind you I'm out of state at this point) with Karen that she threw a $18,000 catering minimum at my fiancé and I. We were shocked. Because of her bad business strategy (with holding a $18,000 minimum) we decided to drop Mapleside. Unfortunately our other venue does not have any available dates left for the summer so now we are back at square one. I will say though that each time I spoke with Karen she was very nice.

Email us at OurMaplesideWedding@gmail.com and we can send you our detailed story. Our experience was overall horrible. We are still meeting with Greg (the owner), two months after the wedding, as we try to resolve the situation. Mapleside owns the barn, but Taste Of Excellence pays rent to operate it and cater events. This has caused huge problems. Some of the highlights from our memorable experience include:
-being lied to by Taste about a new ceremony site that Mapleside knew would not be built in time for our wedding.
-not knowing who is in charge of their venue. It is Mapleside's barn, but Taste Of Excellence represents the property as well as caters the events. However, Taste has been able to tell us lies about the property and then in the end they are able to say "we are only the catering company". Nobody is held accountable here.
-randomly finding out the barn was 8 weeks behind schedule only because we called Taste Of Excellence to ask a question about parking passes.
-2 months before the wedding, after finding out there will be no new ceremony site as promised and the barn would not be completed as originally told, we are given two options. 1. Take our money back and leave to find a whole different venue 2. Stay with Mapleside & Taste and receive "upgraded linens", but no discount.
-2 weeks later and less than 2 months before the wedding, we are offered a discount (22% catering service fee discounted to 10% because the barn was not completed as promised) and then having the discount taken away TWO HOURS before the wedding rehearsal. We stuck with them and we have yet to receive this discount. The owner Greg, will say that the discount only applied if we chose the lodge instead of the barn. This specific condition was never told to us.
-And having Mapleside ask us to sign a non-disclosure agreement that would prevent us from sharing our experience with anyone.

My fiancee and I toured Mapleside Farms and we were completely impressed with how beautiful the venue sites are. Especially the main reception area. Everything is completely renovated and spotless with amazing views. Just stunning. Both Karen and Riki went out of their way to answer all of our questions and to get us full quotes on everything. The only bump in the road that ended with us choosing another vendor was while Mapleside's costs were very resonable those for their catering partner were not. There seemed to be an extra charge for everything including your servers and coffee. And that's on top of being charged a service charge and having an open bar. In the end the extra charges for things that other places include was so much we had to take another route which is a shame because we loved the place.

The place was amazing, the view from the top of the hill we got married on was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a nicer or hotter day for September. not a cloud in the sky. Everyone was very helpful and nice. Just a beautiful place!

We were so please with having our wedding at Mapleside! I had a budget of $5000 and this reception with wonderful food was less than I had budgeted for. We had an outdoor ceremony. As the bridal party was getting pictures the guest played cornhole and the kids blew bubbles, bobbed for apples, and had potato sack races. We hoped to have the reception outside but decided the night before that it was going to be too hot so we moved the reception inside. It was still a wonderful day. The staff was wonderful and right on top of things. They had high chairs at the tables with young children...which I asked for. They also were very caring towards the elderly. They would help them carry their food to the tables. The owner of the restaurant was also there helping the whole time.

Absolutely terrible. The event coordinator actually "forgot" about our wedding when we arrived that day-even though I had just spoken with Mapleside the day prior to make sure everything was all set. In fact, they had to call her at home to come in and she showed up in something you'd probably wear as pajamas to bed. Nothing was set up. Fortunately for my husband, father in law and wedding officiant, they helped pull everything together and help the staff set up. Also we were promised in our meeting with Mapleside prior to our wedding we would have two waiters. We had one. Who was also working the main restaurant and bar so could not devote his full attention to us. He did an amazing job though for what he had thrown at him at the last minute. I was just apalled at the awful coordinating that was done. I would not recommend them to anyone other than to visit the restaurant to eat because the food is outstanding.

I had my ceremony outdoors overlooking the apple orchard and I kept receiving compliments about the beautiful scenery. I arrived two and a half hours early to get pictures with my bridesmaids and all the chairs were already set up and ready to go. I did not request it to be up earlier, but the trellis did not make an appearance until about two hours before the wedding. I think we got some great pictures simply because the landscape was so beautiful. The staff were very kind and let me and the bridesmaids wait downstairs in one of their banquet rooms between pictures and the ceremony so we did not have to drive back to our hotel. They even offered to get us drinks while we were waiting.

I also had my rehearsal dinner here and the food was amazing! We ate family style on the upper level of the restaurant and had the entire level to ourselves. We could even walk out on the attached wrap around patio and enjoy the view of the orchards. My only complaint is that between booking the facilities and the actual events there was a new event manager hired. There was some information that needed to be re-iterated due to this. Overall, everything went very well and I was pleased with venue.
