Tipi Village Retreat -

Destination Weddings in the natural beauty of Oregon.

We set the stage for your unforgettable memories with a secluded woodland setting by the creek: Days filled with love and laughter, with friends and family – with beauty and meaning. Memories in the making. The tall trees will be your gateway to a new life together, and the photos will tell your story.-


Imagine inviting your closest friends and family members to stay with you at the Tipi Village for two nights. Share a Paella at the Rehearsal Dinner before the big day. Sit around the fire or splash in the spa and reminisce with old friends. Then, after a deep restful sleep, you start your day off with a hearty breakfast and you still have plenty of time and lots of hands to put all the last pieces together before your guests arrive for the ceremony by the creek or under the big tree. Celebrate into the night. Wake up refreshed the next morning to share one more meal with your friends and loved ones before you take off for your honeymoon - just the two of you! Read less

Our wedding was truly amazing, and the Tipi Village Retreat had no small part of making it so. In addition to providing a truly one-of-a-kind location, they took care of all the little details, and the food was amazing. Having an entire weekend to celebrate our wedding with those closest to us in a pristine and unique setting cannot be overstated. My guests are all still raving about the event, with most of them saying that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. They were very easy to work with, professional and accommodating .If you are on the fence about using the Tipi Village for your event, just call them up and book.

Our experience with Ken and Susanne was wonderful from beginning to end. We visited the village on numerous occasions while we were planning the wedding and they were so helpful with recommendations and anything else we needed. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and they are always around to make sure you have anything you might need. The food is TO DIE FOR! We reserved the entire village for the weekend of our wedding and had aprox 30 friends and family stay with us to celebrate. Although they do not require it, we opted to have the village provide catering for both the rehearsal dinner and wedding reception (in addition to breakfast). All of our guests were very pleased with the food. Ken and Susanne were willing to adjust the menu to our liking and accommodated several vegetarian guests. Months later our family are still gushing about the wedding. It was the absolutely perfect environment for our laid back DIY event. I can't think of anything bad to say. Would highly recommend the Tipi Village to anyone who is looking for a unique and intimate venue, or even just a restful weekend away.

The atmosphere at Tipi Village is magical. Our guests marveled over the beauty of the place, enjoyed swinging in the hammock, wading in the creek, sleeping in a tipi, sitting by the fire, and we enjoyed the hot tub after a busy and wonderful wedding day. The food was fantastic. We arranged for paella and paid a little extra for appetizers which include premium quality nuts, homemade hummus, goat cheese, fruit, crackers, etc. The presentation of the food was simple yet elegant and just what we wanted. Thank you, Ken and Susanne! You helped us make awesome memories.

Our wedding weekend at the Tipi Village Retreat was better than I ever could have dreamed. Staying in such a comfortable, relaxing place with our close family and friends was perfect and allowed everyone to get to know one another very well. Ken, Susan and the staff there were extremely friendly, honest, helpful and just fabulous to work with. I felt no stress the days leading up to and the day of our day. I hope to return someday for some r&r with family and friends.

To call our Tipi Village weekend the "Dream Wedding" would be an understatement: It was a gorgeous joyous festival in an enchanted forrest. The perfectly-curated venue delighted every guest--city and country folks alike--and the house-prepared meals were fresh, diverse, and delicious. We could not have asked for anything more.

Ken and Susanne truly treated us like family. They handled a huge range of tasks from picking and arranging flowers to helping design the ceremony scene to setting up for the band. They've poured years of work and and unique creative vision into Tipi Village, and it's clear to everyone who visits.

Our guests took advantage of the nearby hikes, swimming in the on-site creek, the plentiful hammocks, and the party-sized hot tub.

Doug and the culinary team treated us to some gourmet, sustainably- sourced delights (including fresh grilled fish, perfectly-spiced seafood paella, and crisp creative pizzas). The breakfasts, which featured Northwest salmon, local berries, and homemade breads, were a particular hit.

We whole-heartedly recommend Tipi Village as a wedding venue. It's unique, welcoming, and utterly stunning.

Where do I begin? Tipi Village was the perfect place for our wedding. After all the planning it was ideal to stretch the event out for the whole weekend and have our closest family and friends lodge there for the two nights. Ken and Susanne are two of the kindest people and they worked so hard to make everything just right. Their property is well cared for and is just beautiful with flowers everywhere and incredible photo backgrounds at every turn. They catered our reception as well and everyone commented on how great the food was and it was presented beautifully. Susanne put together beautiful flower arrangements including the one for our ceremony altar. She also took great pictures of our ceremony that she sent us the next day. Our guests couldn't say enough about how beautiful and special the venue was. One thing that's good to know is that if you want your party to go late, amplified music has to be off at 10pm and noise in general by midnight. They also ask for no liquor or smoking on the grounds. However, if you value nature, positive energy, and lovely hosts more than a crazy party, then this is a beautiful, special place to get married.

Tipi Village is an amazing place to have a wedding. Ken and Susanne are lovely, supportive hosts. My family and friends were blown away by the beauty of the land, kindness of the hosts, and elegant natural surroundings.
A year later, they are still talking about it, asking if we can get married again.
What an incredible experience with two beautiful people on a truly special site.

Ken & Susanne were warm and so wonderful to work with. My wedding was a unique and intimate even that would not have been the same anywhere else. The property is beautiful and the setting was perfect for my "woodland" wedding. If you don't want a cookie-cutter event, Tipi Village provides a great alternative. I got so exasperated looking at wedding venues knowing a "wedding factory" feel was not for me. At Tipi Village you get a chance to appreciate your special time. I definitely suggest the entire weekend there. The paella dinner on Friday was delicious along with breakfast every morning. If you compare what's in included you will find it to be an exceptional value. On top of it all we also made life-long friends.

Tipi Village is an ideal location for a wedding or special event. The staff are friendly and extremely hard working. The location itself is beyond beautiful. The tipis and guest rooms are inviting and comfortable. After spending the weekend there, we developed a special bond with the owners and the place itself and will return to spend some more time in the future. The food was delicious and you couldn't ask for a better neighbor than Holly who housed some of our guests at her PlayFarm. It was a gorgeous and joyful event.
