This place is a lush paradise thanks to the vision of Don the owner and the genius of Carl the landscaper. An incredible destination for events such as weddings and high school reunions. A real first class operation.

“One of the prettiest places to have a wedding!!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

I have been to several events at the Grand Tradition. It is by far one of the prettiest and classiest places to have a wedding! The gardens are so beautiful and so is the amazing pond with swans swimming in them. The food is also fairly good! I believe lunch is now served daily as well!!!

“Beautiful venue!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

I got married here in 1996, the staff was great and the venue was beautiful! There is heart shaped pond by the gazebo, the weather is usually pretty decent, and if not, they can do the ceremony or celebration inside.
