"Working with this venue has been just what I wanted in my wedding venue. They are responsible and responsive, with great details to maintaining the property and linens etc., but they are also laid back enough to allow my own personal vision of my wedding take shape. We're planning on spending the whole weekend to have the rehearsal dinner, bridal luncheon, wedding prep, and lengthy wedding reception with no time limit, all in one place. As we transition into fall I am excited to have smores on the bonfire and relax in this serene environment. Would highly recommend!" -Jennifer K.
"I had a wedding reception here. The place was great! The price was excellent compared to other places. The thing I liked the most was that it was in the country and had a real private and romantic setting. Plus it was clean and tidy. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone interested in booking for a wedding, party, baby shower, retreat or any special event. Plus the staff was very accommodating." -Thomas C.
"My wife and I were married on July, 11th and we couldn’t be happier! We’ve spent a lot of time on this property and we love the advantage of being in both an open and private atmosphere. All the buildings and greenery are kept looking beautiful and we couldn’t think any better of any other place to celebrate a special day!" -John P.
"I recently held my daughter’s wedding at The Rivers Retreat in Covington. We were able to spend four days prior to the ceremony enjoying the beautiful property. It gave us ample time to decorate as well as having access to the cabins in which the bridal party and groom’s party were able to enjoy. The dining hall is beautiful and we had access to a top-notch kitchen where the caterer also had access several days before the event. We were also able to have rehearsal dinner there as well. It’s a wonderful place for big events. It has a gorgeous enclosed pavilion with a beautiful brick fireplace that was used as a focal point for the ceremony. All in all it was way beyond our expectations. I would definitely recommend this venue. The owner was very accommodating and was eager to please. Top notch!!" - Sharon D.
