About The Summer House Venue & Outdoor Events

Set in the heart of horse country, hosting weddings and events for parties of 20 - 100 people, The Summer House is a charming location with a rustic, vintage setting. The indoor space features a very large stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows. The intimate and elegant greenspace are perfect for photographs and our gorgeous, hand-laid stone pergola provides the perfect backdrop for any outdoor event. We will work with you to stylize The Summer House Venue so that it fits any vision you create. With our primary event space being in front of The Summer House we do not do outdoor events January- March because of Kentucky's unpredictable weather. Let us show you why our venue should be your preferred event location in Central Kentucky. We are the best kept secret in Bourbon County!

The Summer House


Just in the Planning Stages - Already So Very Excited! - An Eventective User from Cynthiana, KY

Our daughter and future son-in-law chose this venue because of its intimacy and rustic charm. The venue is beautiful; the atmosphere comfortable, romantic, and very relaxing. Recently, we had our first meeting where we met the owner, Lisa. She proved to be the most accommodating, helpful, and personable person we have ever met. She went out of their way to show us each and every detail that makes The Summer House such a wonderful place to have any type of event. Her excitement is so contagious! We can hardly wait till May!. Thanks, Lisa - we know our precious bride and groom are in good hands.

Happy Bride - An Eventective User from Maysville, KY

Amazing! We had been searching for a place that was close to Maysville and Lexington, a halfway place. We found it! We wanted a romantic rustic vintage wedding that was both elegant and welcoming to our guest. We found it! It was super easy to find for our guest. The owner was super helpful and did EVERYTHING to make our day perfect! Our caterers even raved about how beautiful and perfect this venue is. I would recommend this place to anyone for there special event!!!!!!!

Perfect wedding venue - An Eventective User from lexington

I recently just did a wedding at the Summer House Venue and it was beyond what we expected. Speaking from a wedding planners perspective I couldnt have asked for a better spot for my couples special day. Lisa the venues owner was so easy and flexible to work with and just a genuinely lovable personality. The venue is beautifully kept and the small details were never overlooked. She has an in house florist which is very helpful as well as tables and chairs. I fell in love with the venue the first time i saw it but on the wedding day with all the lights all lit and chairs in place in front of the handmade perigola made me fall in love with it all over again. I highly recommend this venue and can not wait to have another couples wedding here.

Absolutely charming! - An Eventective User from Carlisle, KY

Attended a gathering on an inclement Jan evening, but the beautiful decor, cozy, welcoming ambiance and warm, roaring fire in the stone fireplace made all that bad weather seem to disappear! Lisa did a wonderful job of making everyone feel welcome and at home...cannot think of a better place to hold an event or kinder person to work with!

Warm and welcoming...a perfect site! - An Eventective User from Carlisle, KY

Attended an event on an inclement January night, but the beautiful decor, cozy feel and warm, roaring fire in the stone fireplace made all the bad weather seem to disappear! Can't think of a better place to hold and event (bet it is super in the summer!) or a sweeter hostess than Lisa!

Perfect Christmas wedding - An Eventective User from Midway, KY

Lisa at The Summer House is an amazing hostess and the venue is so cozy and welcoming. We had the first Christmas wedding - my husband and I renewed our vows after 12 years of marriage (courthouse first time military orders to Iraq) and Lisa made me feel as if I was a bride for the first time! The florist she recommended is outstanding! We will be planning another event at The Summer House!! 10 out 10 stars if that was an option! We can't thank you enough Lisa for making our special day truly a day we will never forget!! Aminda Davis

Management Response
This couple is obviously still very much in love after 12 years of marriage. It was our pleasure to assist this military family and have the opportunity to meet their family and friends. What a treat it was for us to host this event for them. Best wishes to Aminda and Brian for a lifetime of happiness to come.
Terrific site for a party -bridal or baby shower o - An Eventective User from Carlisle, KY

This charming venue is a treasure ! The Summer House is PERFECT for a party to celebrate any occasion. We attended a community gathering there to welcome new folks to our community and everyone felt "at home" right away. The hosts had a fire in the beautiful fire place for ambiance and it provided the perfect setting to sit on the comfy sofas to visit. There was ample room for a dessert buffet and plenty of space for people to mingle. I would highly recommend the Summer House Venue for a bridal shower or birthday party too! I can't wait to go back in the spring to see the beautiful yard , with the tree swing, and help my friend plan her summer wedding here.

Thank you so much. What a lovely review.
I like it! - An Eventective User from Georgetown, KY

This is a beautiful, unique venue. It met the needs of our family get together and birthday party. The setting is beautiful, as you can see from the pictures on the website. I think The Summer House will make a great destination for a variety of occasions. I appreciated the true Kentucky Bluegrass setting and quaint Summer House, which would have been just as welcoming in any other season!
