When looking for a unique and charming facility for your special day, The Greathouse in Avondale, PA is a must see. This beautiful and inviting structure overlooks the Loch Nairn Golf Course and the picturesque Chester County Countryside.

Double French doors lead to the fascinating Round Room which is totally enclosed with glass doors, overlooking the golf course. The Greathouse is a proud supporter of farm to table dining, with vegetarian and gluten free options available. Lots of interest and charm create the character of this "jewel in the country."

The Farmhouse is a renovated 17th Century Farmhouse with small, cozy candelit dining rooms. Tribal Oriental rugs grace the plank floors while interesting artifacts hang from beams. Some rooms boast the romance of crackling fireplaces in winter months. A unique subterranean Chef's Table and old wine cellar await for an intimate evening. Outdoor patio space overlooks the ceremony grounds, with a majestic 17th century Maple creating the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony. The Farmhouse advocates farm to table dining, with food of rare excellence and a French flare.

We had both our ceremony and reception at Loch Nairn. It was absolutely perfect and our guests are still raving about the food, atmosphere, and the service. Several family members stated it was the best wedding they had been to! Barbara is amazing! She is so attentive and so on top of everything. She made me feel at ease and has helpful hints as you go along in your planning. Our parents were so pleased and felt so taken care of the entire time by her! She went as far as to track my mom down while she was being swept away by guests to make sure she ate! The food is amazing - some weddings I've been to I've felt like I didn't have enough to eat. Our guests were saying they were still stuffed several days later ;-) The service the staff provided was beyond excellent. There was always someone there to wait on you and drinks were kept flowing. The atmosphere at Loch Nairn is so charming, it's amazing. The day was perfect and we coudn't be more happier. Thank you Barbara and Loch Nairn!

What a perfect wedding venue! We had both our ceremony and reception here and could not have been happier. The wedding coordinator, Barbara Barnes, is on the ball and very detail oriented, which makes for a flawless wedding day. Barbara stayed the entire night, which was very much appreciated.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Loch Nairn on 9/27/13 and could not have been happier! From the beginning, Barbara Barnes was very easy to work with and she guided us throughout the entire process so we knew exactly what was needed and when. I was so surprised to see her at the end of the reception and was thankful that she stayed the entire time to assure that everything went smoothly. Our guests raved about the food and the beautiful location. It was a perfect day and it went so fast. I just wish I could do it all again!!

Hi Dear Barbara!!!

Words cannot express our complete happiness with all the service at Loch Nairn for our daughter's wedding!

Everything was above expectations. You and your staff are the consumate professionals. The service, food, and ambiance was totally impeccable. Our guests were all so impressed ~ the food was absolutely delicious; from appetizers, signature cocktail, salads, main courses, and of course the dessert and coffee finale. And you are Martha did such a wonderful job with the set-up of all the items for the tables. Many thanks to Eric and his co-workers for their professionalism and hard work. He is a gentleman and absolutely amazing at his job. Thanks to everyone for helping to carry the flower arrangements out to our truck - great team effort!!!

We plan to come to Loch Nairn to retrieve our ferns and other loose items we may have left in the locker rooms. We hope to see you then! Many thanks as well to Ginny Smedley - her venue is superb. I have yet to see her; but she was friends with my parents and Hank and my father played tennis and squash together.

Barbara, you are so gifted as the wedding coordinator for Loch Nairn. What an asset you are; and we were so very fortunate to have you coordinate Chris & Christine's wedding. You must be exhausted! Hopefully, you got some much needed rest. Your talents are so much appreciated by David, myself, and our entire family. A huge THANK YOU to you for a years worth of fabulous planning! Please use us as a reference for any future Brides and Grooms considering Loch Nairn!

A million thanks to you!!!

All our best,

Anne & David Ottley

We had an absolutely perfect experience at Loch Nairn. From our first meeting, the whole staff was so unbelievably welcoming and attentive. Barbara was a treasure the whole time. I had complete confidence that she had everything under control and would give us a perfect day. From the moment we pulled up at Loch Nairn on the day of our wedding, the head waiter was in control of our every need and desire. It was like anytime we thought of something, there he was behind us, with it already on his tray. The food was absolutely delicious. We were, honestly, a little nervous because it was so delicious at our tasting, we didn't think they could possibly replicate it on a large scale, but they pulled it off! I am so grateful that we found Loch Nairn, I couldn't imagine having our big day anywhere else. All our friends are still raving about how perfect everything was, and we are still glowing from our amazingly beautiful experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

To any bride and groom looking for a gorgeous, warm-feeling, and intimate wedding venue... this is truly the place for you!

As a professional wedding photographer, I knew immediately upon entering how perfect this location was the vision I had in my head for picture perfect images. What I didn't realize was just how amazing the wedding coordinator, food, staff, and atmosphere would be as well! Alyssa was with me every step of the way, helping me plan and execute my little dream wedding... even taking extra steps to allow me to borrow some of her own personal lanterns to add "pop" to our ceremony decor. She was also on-hand the night of the wedding to ensure everything ran smoothly, and even performed some wonderful kid-wrangling with some of the younger ones that were in attendance...above and beyond her role in my eyes (she is a saint!) ;)

The food was amazing. During one of our meetings the chef came out to meet me and helped create a one-of-a-kind idea to wow our guests. The staff was kind and willing to go the extra mile to ensure everyone had what they needed, and to answer any questions the night of the wedding.

Cannot say enough positive things here. Everything simply perfect! I highly recommend this venue to all!!

The entire experience from start to finish was seamless and exciting and especially organized by our consultant, Barbara Barnes. We used most of their vendor referrals and was not disappointed. The venue is rustic and warm with the beauty only a countryside locale can provide. My husband and I have been eating there for many years and it became apparent that this would be the location of our wedding if we could secure it. What a score! Our families were so wowed by the appearance of the venue and the service. I found their prices to be reasonable and they even included a 2% rebate due to cash payment. What a super location for a wedding. Only drawback, a large crowd. Our wedding size came to 46 (including us) but I know they can accomodate at least twice the group size. We know where we will be next year on our anniversary, without a doubt :)
