Behind the high stone walls that seclude Cairnwood from the rest of the world, is a spectacular setting available for weddings and special occasions.

Created as an elegant sanctuary and private estate for 19th Century industrialist John Pitcairn. Cairnwood is an architectural masterpiece from the Gilded Age complete with lush gardens and grounds.

Please join us for our Open House on Wednesday evenings from 6pm – 8pm. Cairnwood is also available for tours on the weekends or during the week by appointment.

Please note that there will be no Open House on the evening of November 26th, December 24th and December 31st. 

“This is the most beautiful venue that anyone can ask for. We had our ceremony outdoor on the flagstone facing Glencairn, which made for the perfect backdrop. Cairnwood has history, as well as, elegance which is rare to find in an area overrun with the typical banquet halls. You will feel like a princess for one night as you celebrate your special day in this unforgettable estate.” ~ Married May 2013

“I recommend Cairnwood as highly as possible. My husband and I had a great experience working with everyone there. It was the dream location and all of our guests agreed; they couldn’t stop raving about how amazing the mansion was.
They also are one of the few venues that has not only a great bridal suite, but a 2 room groom’s suite also! You won’t regret choosing Cairnwood!” ~ Married April 2013

” What more great things can be said that haven’t already? It is truly rare to come across a place so unique and beautifully aesthetic as The Cairnwood. You walk into another world and then greeted by folks who genuinely care for their clients and guests. The warmth is natural and organic. I have now been there many times and each visit is warmer and better than the last.  Shannon and staff are the sort that can take an already wonderful place to an even higher place. The Cairnwood is not just a wonderful grounds or place – it is that for sure- but much more so it is the embodiment of the people that work there and care for their guests..that make it uniquely special.  Without exception a favorite amongst all who have the opportunity to go.” ~ Ken Negri, The Funktion Band

” Cairnwood is unparalleled in its architectural beauty, fascinating history, consistent personal service, and seemingly endless photo opportunities.” ~ Married October 2012

“All I can say is WOW!!! What a beautiful place! So charming and has so much history.” ~ Married June 2012

“Cairnwood was absolutely beautiful. The house and grounds are exceptionally maintained. The staff at Cairnwood was wonderful to work with during our planning as well as the day of our wedding. We highly recommend Cairnwood!” ~ Married May 2012

“So much more than just a fairy tale wedding is provided in this setting. Their preferred caterers are all amazing. The service of their staff really help you make you feel at home, maybe a little too at home! It provides an atmosphere of eloquence and a wedding every girl dreams of having.” ~ Married March 2012
