The Milan Villa is a very unique, private, 4 story stone structure. This 10,000 square foot destination wedding venue has slate and wood floors, 3 fireplaces, and very large rooms. The villa sits on 26 acres amidst 200+ acres of rolling hills, forest, and our own river, with an interesting dam and stone pump house. Our one acre, 16 foot deep pond has its own sand beach, with a sand volleyball court. Many private nature paths and a vineyard. A large several acre parking area great for camping. The kitchen features a 62' Wolf stove, 2-drawer refrigerator, and granite counters. There is a separate butlers pantry with a high volume ice maker, large Subzero refrigerator, and second dishwasher. We have a large living room, dining room, library, sunroom, and upstairs ballroom. Many crystal chandelier, high quality artwork, and six foot grand piano. This property is in the woods. If wildlife and lack of TV and internet bother you, the Villa is not for you.
The villa is available most weekdays and on weekends when we are not having weddings. We are a birders paradise with songbirds, hawks, and great blue herons. We also have many mammals, including deer, fox, and coyote. Photographers rent our villa for photo shoots. You must see to believe. This is a perfect venue for parties and family reunions. We have many and varied nature trails and unique gardens. The local back country roads are a bicycle enthusiasts paradise.
