Reception in Creekside

Chankaska Creekside is a stunning venue lined with matures trees and a winding creek. It features a 40 x 80 tent with cathedral windows, vaulted ceilings, flooring, romantic lighting and an additional lawn. The Creekside Tent can be cooled or heated and accommodates approximately 250 guests for seated events.


The groom and I were on the fence as to whether we were going to go through with a big wedding or not. We stepped foot onto the property, had a glass of wine, met with Karen and the deal was sealed. The space is absolutely beautiful, the staff is helpful every step of the way, and the local MN wine is delicious. We moved out of state in the midst of the planning process, but Karen and Courtney helped to keep things on track and made sure I didn't miss anything. Their vendor recommendations are helpful, they said that they would not recommend anyone if they didn't think they did a great job, and this rang true with the vendors I encountered through them. The week before the wedding they had had some property damage from rain/high waters and Karen spoke with me multiple times about potential changes and options to think about. They were even going to figure out a new firepit option as their built-in one had flooded and they knew it was an important part to us. The day of came and everything went perfectly. Courtney ran a flawless set-up and event and checked in with me multiple times during the day. My guests have been raving about it all. I highly recommend Chankaska!

Lara - Wedding date 10.1.16


Chankaska hosted our wedding on 7/30/16. What a spectacular setting for our special day. Throughout the planning process, Karen was our go-to-person. She did an amazing job helping us make our plans and ideas happen. We never felt like we were asking too much. Everything was possible from her perspective. What I really appreciated was that she worked closely with our florist, caterer and wedding planner. There were a lot of things that when on behind the planning scenes that we trusted with Karen to coordinate. Chankaska is a stunningly beautiful property and on our wedding day, it was in immaculate condition. My husband and I have always been so impressed by the care that the team at Chankaska does to keep the property and surroundings so well groomed. On the day of the wedding, the staff at Chankaska was so helpful and respectful of all that we had planned. They never missed a beat and were always there to help out. We used three venues - Forest, Court and Barrel Room and their staff did a great job of getting everything beautifully set up including a King's Table that sat 79 people. Our guest continue to rave about the wedding and the beautiful setting of the Chankaska winery. Choosing them for our wedding venue was the best decision we made.

Nancy - Wedding Date 7.30.16


We originally chose Chankaska because of its beautiful venue and amazing wine, however, we were pleasantly surprised by how helpful and supportive the staff was. Their events coordinator, Karen, was with us every step of the way providing direction and expertise on anything and everything. Choosing this venue was by far the best choice that we made!
