Your wedding is a special day in your life. We will help you create lasting memories and a haven to return to year after year for your Anniversary. Whether a civil union, nuptials or elopement, join us for your special day arriving as a guest and leaving as a friend.
The perfect wedding begins with an exceptional location. Our renovated 1919 timber frame barn provides a rustic backdrop with minimal decoration so you may create the decor and atmosphere you desire. Our Elegant Barn is a permanent event venue featuring a three-story (35 feet) tall ceiling in the loft space with a 3000 square foot hardwood floor hand crafted from seven hardwoods grown on our farm. Enjoy heated and cooled indoor bathrooms on two levels with showers on the first level.
The rustic resort ambiance is the perfect setting for rehearsal dinners, ceremonies, receptions and honeymoons with unique venues. Say *I do* with a full-service destination wedding at Justin Trails Resort and create an experience that is uniquely yours by reserving the resort and spending the weekend with friends and family.
Imagine your wedding ceremony and reception taking place against the rustic backdrop of our private, secluded valley with towering 125-year-old silver maples, pines, yews, large open yard for a tent, Elegant Barn and grassy parking area. We host weddings of fewer than 300 guests for the ceremony, reception or both.
We create a tradition of providing special romantic getaway weddings. We require that you book the whole Resort for your family and friends for total privacy, intimacy and plenty of room to spread out. Onsite lodging is available for 18 people. Camping is also available. Enjoy your first morning together with a delicious breakfast served in The Lodge or delivered to your cottage, suite or cabin between 7:30 and 10:00.
Kids of all ages delight in exploring our quiet organic farm – listening to birds, animals, the wind. Mother Nature is entertaining and we offer areas for children to play. We are a Travel Green Wisconsin Certified resort committed to continuously improving our operations in order to reduce our environmental impact.
Our pet-friendly bed and breakfast resort is best enjoyed off-leash any time of the year. During winter we groom a special loop just for dog walking.
For outdoor weddings we provide 200 Amp electric hookup for all your electrical needs in the Garden area. If you choose to hold only your ceremony here in our Gardens, we have restrooms available for bridal preparations in the loft and lower level of our Elegant Barn.
Book your hairdresser, massage therapist, yoga instructor and makeup artist to pamper you right here. Scroll to view local businesses we recommend.
Justin Trails Resort is located south of Sparta Wisconsin, 20 min from Onalaska, 30 min from La Crosse, 2 hours from Madison, 3 hr from the cities and 4 hr from Chicago.
In Sparta you’ll find bed & breakfast inns and three chain hotels for additional guests.
