Thomas “Crazy Man” Scott walked onto this land with one vision in mind and that was to provide a place where family, friends, nature, and excitement could all come together. Within a few years, he formed one of the most spacious and unique venues located in Indiana. Found just 1 hour away from Indianapolis, Terre Haute and Lafayette, IN, this beautiful,secluded venue brings the term “country wedding” to a whole new term. With over 400 acres of private land, these grounds can offer more than one night of wedding, retreat, or family celebrations, but a whole week of natural and relaxing fun. We pride our selves in going beyond the expectations of any client that visits Crazy Man’s Hideaway, and provide a level of service that we believe is hard to find at any other banquet site.
