Weddings were our first idea but we’re still brainstorming as the property has so many areas and opportunities. Our first order of business is to remodel the clubhouse into a beautiful event center to include an indoor reception area with a kitchen as well as a Bride and Groom area. In addition, two indoor/outdoor reception areas will overlook the lake with a timber frame construction, cathedral ceilings, with a large stone fireplace as the focal point. An open area will be included with a pergola for viewing the stars. A deck over the lake for wedding photos will round out the remodel. The best part of Persimmon Ridge Resort is that the Bride will be able to choose her outdoor wedding location; near the lake, gardens, forest, or one of the several bridges on the 90 acre property. We will be able to accommodate several hundred guests for corporate events as well. The beautiful landscape and natural entertainment will be part of the package as well. This will include fishing, disc golf, geocaching, biking, walking trails, scenic views, wildlife areas and birdwatching. Two ducks live in our pond, in addition to wild turkey & deer nearby. Also we plan to reopen the driving range, putting green and a 3-hole executive golf course for guests. Future plans include sustainable/organic gardening with flowers that will be available for weddings and/or seasonal farm to table dining, with tours and the opportunity for guests to get hands on gardening/cultivation experiences. In phase three we plan to have nightly cabin/cottage rentals for honeymooners, romantics and nature- lovers. We will potentially include eco- friendly, off the grid cottages/cabins.
