Celebrate your Wedding Event at the Treman Center!
Enjoy The Treman Center’s large, classic barn and Italianate courtyards on the edge of the Finger Lakes’ most scenic parks, featuring a spectacular 2.5 mile gorge and dramatic waterfalls right in our backyard. We are only 10 minutes from downtown Ithaca.
When you host your event at The Treman Center, the grounds are yours for full use as a destination weekend from 9 am Friday morning until 2 pm Sunday afternoon. We have found that for couples with family and friends coming in from out of town, having a central gathering place to hold the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and brunch is ideal.
There are many ways to stage your event around our vast grounds, front terrace, tree-flanked alley, and the two large main floors with fireplaces. The first floor is all stone, opening out onto the spacious Tuscan courtyards with water feature. The second floor has a fantastic dance floor with great sound and a Steinway; it’s also perfect for a seated dinner. There are handicap bathrooms on the first and second floor and a private bathroom for the bridal suite.
There is a bridal bedroom suite on the third floor for the marital couple to stay in for the weekend and a charming dressing area with theatre lights and mirrors where the bridesmaids can get ready with hair/makeup artists if desired.
Our unique stretch tent from South Africa floats over the field and seats up to 150 people. This is a must for seating over 120 people, but it also provides additional staging options for rain or shine.

“The Treman Center is the most perfect place for my wedding. My fiancé and I looked at venues all over upstate New York trying to find something that spoke to both of our tastes: rustic and classic New England elegance. Somehow we came across the Treman Center and it just clicked. Everything from the actual barn to the stonework to the grounds jumped out at us. Plus the owners are fantastic, really hard working people dedicated to making this place extremely special. I simply can not wait to have my wedding there.” – Amy R.
“The perfect backdrop for our guests to gather and celebrate…”
”I cannot recommend the Treman Center enough! My Husband and I had our rehearsal dinner there and we invited all of our wedding guests so there were about 100ppl. The barn, the landscaping and the serene setting were the perfect backdrop for our guests to gather and celebrate and relax. The venue is breathtaking and extremely versatile depending on if you want your event indoors or out or both and depending on the size of your group. The positioning of the barn at sunset makes for the most incredible photo opportunities. I would strongly recommend this for a wedding venue as well. Leslie was incredibly helpful and accommodating to us from start to finish. Her creative attention to detail and positive energy were inspiring. We had the most incredible time at the space and our guests still talk about the venue to this day. We are planning to hold an anniversary party there to relive the experience in the next few years and cannot wait.” – Jessica B
