We are only 15 miles south of Scenic Duluth and 2 hours north of the Twin Cities!


Hemlock Preserve provides a unique and beautiful gathering space for your wedding

or special event. Creating magical experiences from June - October, our intimate venue

can accommodate up to 75 guests. 


After conveying your vision and collaborating with Hemlock Preserve we will mix and match from our vast collection of antique dishes, glassware, copper, silver, treenware, pewter, linens, iron, stoneware and crystal to personalize your event, with extra special attention to detail.




Notice the smiles,

Listen to the laughter,

Smell the crackling fire,

Watch your guests as the experience unfolds.


Step into the vaulted hayloft of the rustic barn and marvel at the unexpected elegance and comfort of the dining area furnished
with old world antiques.

Having a wedding at the Hemlock Preserve means Simplified Planning and Personalized Space.


Observe the quiet, 

Hear the sounds, 

Smell the fresh air, 

Watch the wildlife,
