Reviews

The Stone House was perfect for our wedding. There was ample space to dress and prep. The grounds are beautiful and easily utilized for a smaller wedding. Renting the space was easy and remarkably affordable. In addition, we received our deposit back in a timely manner. I am so happy we picked such a lovely place to say our vows. A beautiful place to begin a next chapter.

The stone house is a beautifully restored home from the 1860's. Its set on the grounds of Bear Creek Greenbelt. The outside of the home has the largest cottonwood tree I've ever seen . We fell in love with grounds and were married right under that tree, which also faces the lake about 30 feet away. We hunted for so long to find the right place that was in our budget. The rental is dirt cheap compared to other places, comes with tables and chairs and we used the upstairs rooms as dressing rooms. It's rented through the community resources department for Lakewood. The rental is very straightforward with no surprises.
