Engaging and serene is the best way to describe the ThornCreek garden spaces that present a surprise around every corner. Our award-winning gardens include a perennial garden, private gathering places, a magical secret arbor and walkways lined with thousands of blooming plants, stacked rocks, a European inspired fountain and vast lawn spaces. Designed and maintained by DTR Associates, Inc., our gardens are a destination in themselves!
The Tasting Room
Our casually elegant Tasting Room is the perfect indoor sharing space. The smell of delicious food, the sound of wine glasses toasting a special occasion, the beautiful panoramic garden views that are inspiring in every season culminate in what we call the “ThornCreek Experience.” The unique open air feeling to our Vaulted Garden Ballroom and 2 1/2 story Vaulted Bar with the adjacent temperature-controlled wine chilling room set the tone for all of the other interior and exterior spaces that are part of the unique aesthetic journey found at ThornCreek.
The Aging Cellar
Enjoy a cozy gathering with friends and family or that special someone in the midst of our operational wine cellar that we call our “Lounge Underground”. Stainless steel wine tanks are offset with chandeliers and magnificent vibrant original art in combination with the sounds of live music creates the most unique dining experience in northeast Ohio.
The Secret Tented Waterfall Garden
Tucked in at the end of a winding walkway and footbridge and nestled behind an eight foot living hedge, you will find the perfect location for wedding receptions and larger events. A babbling brook, waterfall, stone dance floor, star inspired lighting a permanent lawn space and amazing sunsets that blanket our skies define this romantic destination. With easy access for caterers and spaces to accommodate all of your guests, our secret garden is becoming the place in Northeast Ohio to hold unique and inspirational events.
The Perennial Pavilion
Nestled amongst hundreds of blooming perennials, shrubs and trees, the Perennial Pavilion is our latest expansion project and is the perfect spot for hosting a garden party or for having a covered ceremony site that feels as if you are immersed within the gardens! The dramatic vaulted space includes a clear story gable offering filtered light into the space while providing views of our custom outdoor grape vine chandeliers that adorn the adjacent trees. This space includes a unique metal bar and 12′ long custom-made chandelier that provide architectural richness to this unique space.
The Vaulted Garden Ballroom
Our Vaulted Garden Ballroom has a greenhouse feeling with its dramatic vaulted ceilings, expansive windows and 16′ folding door system that offers panoramic views of our nationally recognized gardens. The Ballroom includes an adorning vaulted entrance, two new luxury bathrooms and seamlessly links to our Tasting Room and 2 1/2 story bar. This elegant modern farmhouse aesthetic includes touches of rustic details providing unique focal points and warmth for our regular dining and event guests to enjoy in every season.
