Picture the perfect backdrop to the perfect wedding
A place where the lake meets the sky and the setting sun in one breathtaking view. Where lush vineyards frame the landscape canvas, and beautiful gardens paint the vivid colors of nature everywhere you look. A venue with a unique architectural structure that is somehow rustic Americana and grand style at the same moment. Misty Shores is that place … an unforgettable destination for all your unforgettable special occasion.
Our venue is located in the heart of the Lake Erie Wine Region along scenic Route 5 near the New York and Pennsylvania state line in beautiful Chautauqua County. Misty Shores rolls out along more than 10 acres of lakefront property, dotted with charming one-of-a-kind rental cottages. Our beautiful ceremony area overlooks the majestic aqua blue and green waters of Lake Erie. To access the lakefront area, you walk along endless rows of fragrant grapes that create the 30-acre working concord grape vineyard. At the heart and center of the 41-acre property sits the historic Dutch Hoop Barn that is the epicenter of Misty Shores. Here you’ll find the Gardens Cafe, the Shores Wine Shop, vintage dressing rooms, and our impressive second-floor banquet area we call The Vintage Loft.
