About Nature

Let Nature be the backdrop for your next special occasion. Exchange vows in the forest, host your company's event inside the exquisite Great Nest, or reserve the entire resort for a private retreat. Nature is located on a 80 acre resort centrally located in Leelanau County comprised of forest, open spaces (glades), trails, 4+ ceremony spaces, a new contemporary $2M event building, after party bon-fire area, tent pad on the beach of our swimming pond with a valley view, and glamping cabins/tents; all in a comfortable natural setting, yet a timeless modern contemporary look and feel that is elegant yet professionally and neutrally designed for you to place your own style. We have started an expansion of our accommodations with new cabins which will bring many accommodations on site. We are near Glen Arbor and Sleeping Bear Dunes in Leelanau County with many lodging options nearby and in Traverse City. Our main building can hold 220 standing or 170+ with a dance floor, and our tent pad is large enough (40’x120’) to hold 300+. Our mission is to create bonding experiences with your friends, family, and nature. We encourage people to make it a weekend or week to build bonds that last a lifetime; developing a community of support for your marriage. Our spaces are unique and have a simple yet profound elegance, a very authentic and real experience, that we feel is a beautiful important way to start a marriage. We have an amazing bon fire area for an after party to sit under the Milky Way, Northern Lights, and enjoy the life of the forest. An event at Nature is like going on a camping trip to commune with nature, but with luxury and comfort. We specialize on creating unique bonding experiences that build a platform of support for your marriage for life in a natural context. When we have weddings with 150-300 guests, we recommend a tented reception, and using the Main Building for welcoming, cocktails, lounging, fun activities, and dancing/silent disco until 11pm in our ballroom (then to the forest after party space all night!). The after party space does not have a time limit on site. We have 80 acres of space and have the ability to host distanced events. Our cabins are secluded and each one has at least a couple acres to itself. We also have broadband internet and can host 1000’s of concurrent streaming devices for virtual events and for people who are not able to attend your event.
