We get it; planning can be stressful. Whether it is family, friends, or detail-oriented concerns, it can take effort to please everyone while planning your dream wedding. The good news is that our wedding coordinators will take care of all the details! It matters to us that you have the most peaceful, stress-free wedding planning experience possible.

We will send you a detailed wedding checklist once you’ve booked your wedding with us. This list will allow you to choose the cake, flowers, dinner, photography upgrades, and more. We’ll also help you select a wedding date and one of our romantic and luxurious suites. Our wedding coordinators will then take care of all the planning and provide a detailed itinerary once you arrive at our B&B. Moreover, we’re always available to offer suggestions and help with decision-making.

Delve into a true fairytale dreamscape at the Castle’s 65 acres of secluded grounds. Our sprawling grounds provide gorgeous wooded walking trails, a private lake and dock, an outdoor fire pit, and a romantic gazebo overlooking the serene pond. Our luxurious suites feature king-size beds, cozy fireplaces and two-person jetted tubs. One of the most important things for your big day (besides the chance to escape with your unique love) is the serene, breathtaking views and luxury amenities surrounding you. Our picturesque grounds create the perfect backdrop for any vision you may have on your wedding dream board.


Naturally, you want this special day to focus on just the two of you. With the details taken care of, there will be more time for you to spend one-on-one in a beautiful suite and truly take in the little moments throughout your day. Smaller, more intimate ceremonies allow you to enjoy your most memorable wedding day without worrying about details.

On the morning of your wedding, you can take your time alone in your guest room without a care in the world. Spend the morning sleeping in, enjoying a leisurely breakfast delivered to your room, and taking your time getting ready while we take care of the rest. When that moment arrives, as you gaze into each other’s eyes, exchange your heartfelt vows, and say, “I do,” it will seem as if you’re the only two people on earth.

After the big moment, the rest of the day is yours to do as you please. Our Enchanting Elopement Packages will focus on you—the wedding couple—without any unwanted drama or stress.

We set your date on the calendar with a local, professional photographer in all our enchanted elopement packages. Plus, we are happy to upgrade your package to include a Videographer or schedule additional time for extra photography settings. This day will be cherished and remembered forever, and you’re sure to want us to capture the stunning moments of your special day with high-quality professionals at your side. Our photographer will take the time to get the perfect shots representing your unique love against a beautiful backdrop. When you select the season of your choice—spring, summer, fall or winter you can imagine backdrops of beautiful flowers in pastel shades, lush green grass, a shimmering pond, acres of trees in autumn hues, or fresh-fallen snow sparkling in the sun. Every season is a beautiful time to wed at Castle in the Country. Get inspired with a tour of our wedding photo and video gallery.


When you book your special day at the Castle, enjoy a hassle-free wedding and honeymoon all in one! Check-in and relax on your first night. The following day, you’ll have your ceremony in the afternoon and celebrate with a fabulous dinner at one of the best restaurants in our area. Why not add a few more nights to spend the rest of your honeymoon on your timetable, taking a quiet walk in the woods, rowing around the lake, picnicking in the grass or gazebo, soaking in your jetted tub for two, cozying up in front of the fireplace, savoring our delicious gourmet breakfast each morning, relaxing with our in-house spa treatments, or roaming about Southwest Michigan’s unique boutiques, fine local restaurants, and award-winning wineries.

These are just five reasons to elope at Castle in the Country—one of Michigan’s best small wedding venues.
