Weddings

From the moment that we drove into Isabella Freedman and saw the lake with the forested mountains beyond, we fell in love with the place. We cannot imagine a more perfect setting for a wedding weekend that seeks to bring family and friends into a beautiful, comfortable natural setting, replete with a sefer torah and a kosmaher dining room. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful, and the food delights at every meal.
—Mark Barnett and Katherine Gergen, married June 2003
 
 

Mazal Tov – congratulations!

Thank you for considering Isabella Freedman for your special event!

Weddings celebrated at Isabella Freedman are truly magical; from the moment you pull up our cedar-lined drive to the last bite of farm-fresh eggs at Monday’s brunch. Imagine you and your loved ones perched on the edge of a quiet still lake surrounded by lush green mountains. Imagine the taste of expertly prepared farm-to-table dishes made with fresh local, organic, and fair trade ingredients. Imagine padding down to the lake for a late night dip after the last strands of music have died away. Let our home be your home for a weekend event that you and your guests will never forget.
