Weddings

Looking to add some rustic charm to your wedding day? Then consider the Chalet at Bruce's Mill Conservation Area in historic Stouffville. Located in what was once a working sugarbush (hence the name!), the Pancake House can accommodate up to 60 people for recreation and dance. A large shaded area, located adjacent to the facility, is an ideal location for the ceremony or a tent. The facility has a large room with high ceilings upstairs, which is a perfect place to expand the wedding celebrations or to host the ceremony. The upper balcony is ideal for staging photos or for the cocktail reception.
