Björklunden vid Sjön, Swedish for “Birch Grove at the Lake” (but commonly translated to “Birch Forest by the Water”), is a 425-acre estate on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Baileys Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin. A place of great beauty and serenity, the estate was bequeathed to Lawrence University in 1963 by Donald and Winifred Boynton of Highland Park, Illinois.

Following a 2007 expansion project, the splendid two-story, 37,000-square-foot lodge contains a great room, multi-purpose and seminar rooms, dining room and kitchen, as well as 22 guest rooms. There are two lakeside decks, a second-story observation deck, an elevator and a computer lab. The entire facility has wireless Internet access and plenty of parking.

The fee for weddings and receptions is $2,750.

The Boynton Chapel is a small wooden chapel built in a late 12th-century Norwegian stave church (stavkirke) style. Handcrafted by Winifred and Donald Boynton between 1939 and 1947 on the grounds of their summer residence, the chapel is modeled after the Garmo stave church at Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. A popular site for weddings and a favorite stop among Door County tourists, the chapel contains 41 hand-painted frescoes and numerous exceptionally fine carved-wood furnishings.

The chapel is a seasonal building, so although it is available year-round, the temperature inside the building is the same as the temperature outside. The chapel accommodates 36 people sitting in pews. The lighting of candles or use of electric equipment (i.e. space heaters) is not allowed in the chapel. Battery operated candles and boom boxes are permitted.

Lawrence University’s fee for the use of the Björklunden chapel is $425. This fee is for use of the chapel only; there are no facilities for dressing, handling groups if it rains, or public restrooms. There is a two-hour time limit that must be strictly adhered to, as we often have multiple services on the same day.

Garden Gables is located on five, picturesque acres outside of Sister Bay, Wisconsin – the perfect backdrop for your special event!

After successfully hosting their own wedding with more than 400 guests in June, 2014 it was a “no-brainer” as to what owners James and Kayla Larsen should do with their restored farm property. Garden Gables Farm now offers a gorgeous and whimsical wedding event setting for couples who seek the unusual.

“There is always a beautiful cross breeze and so many trees surrounding the property, making it so quiet and peaceful.  In the summer, there’s a water feature and stream that is constantly running which you can hear in the backdrop.  That, paired with the lovely trellis and gazebo, is truly a magical setting,” says Door County Today’s reporter, Laurel Ciohon.
