About Us

Enjoy the scenic six-mile drive from southwest Rochester on paved roads to a beautiful Civil War Era farm. This magical place is nestled in the rolling hillsides of Southern Minnesota. Couples have exchanged vows under our trees for over twenty years.

The vintage European-style Carriage House intentionally matches the look of our Civicl War era brick farmhouse. Inside, the combination of modern and historic makes for a timeless space for entertaining. Poured concrete floors and industrial pipe railing blend nicely with dark wood beams, leather Edison bulb chandeliers, and antiqued exposed brick pillars. Wooden farmhouse tables and elegant cross-back chairs contrast nicely with the light-colored tones throughout the space.

The carriage House seamlessly integrates with beautiful gardens, peaceful country setting, and immense outdoor spaces. The large pergola patio space, garden paths, and expansive lawns make this an outdoor paradise. Large windows overlook the gardens and make you feel like you’re still outdoors.

Garten Marketplatz has always been a family owned and operated business. Our inspiration for the Carriage House came from upcoming weddings in the family and a desire to share the magic of this place with more people. The helpful and friendly staff, personalized attention, and positivity sets us apart and promises to make your event truly special. All are welcome here.
