Deer Park Manor

1501 East Hillside Drive Bloomington, IN
Max Capacity: 5250 people
With élan & style…Deer Park Manor is the acknowledged "grande damme" of Bloomington event facilities. The name Deer Park Manor was coined in 1999 in honor of the deer that make the surrounding property their home during their migratory travels in the Southern part of Bloomington. The Manor is surrounded by a total of more than 41 acres in conservation easements that are the natural habitat for many wild animals, including hawk, red fox and deer. A 40 acre estate…manicured gardens…gracious limestone mansion…and elegantly finished interior. Truly…the perfect backdrop for your unique event. There are several perfect places on the grounds to have an outdoor wedding ceremony. Many couples use the courtyard area and waterfall as the backdrop for their ceremony. Other couples wed under a tent or the trees of the nearby gardens. Be creative; the grounds are yours for the day! The best part about hosting an event at Deer Park Manor is that it feels like a private party! You can be sure that your event is the only event we are concentrating on your special day. Each event is unique and personal because our clients choose all the vendors from the caterer to the baker (or your family wants to do the cooking, that’s fine too). In addition to the beautiful Manor House you may also use the grounds for your event. Arrive in a hot air balloon or on a horse and carriage. There is plenty of free parking for your guests and we even provide our clients with their very own special event and wedding muse to help with all the little details and surprises that will make your event extra special! The Manor House is equipped with two 5 CD players and a sound system for DJs/bands to plug into. The speakers are located inside and outside of the manor, and two portable microphones are also available. We recommend that your DJ/band make an appointment to check out the sound system before the event just in case they have any questions. Our onsite wedding specialist is Pat Bailey and she provides many exclusive benefits to renters of the Deer Park Manor. We’ve worked with some of the best event professionals in Bloomington and we want to share their information with you! We even have a special Event & Wedding Muse on site who can help you choose your event team. Amenities Include: *Waterfalls *Interior seating up to 150 guests *Exterior seating unlimited *State-of-the-art audio surround sound *Full kitchen *Wedding “muse” available
