Elegant Events

Celebrating elegant countryside destination events in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, Oak Knolls Manor is a classic country estate with a beautiful wedding barn event venue on the property.  We are a situated on State Route 5 between the Villages of Avon and Caledonia, in the heart of the historic Genesee Valley in Livingston County.  The property includes a restored 1890's Federal Colonial Farmhouse with Wells Barn, out building, and grain silos, surrounded by hundreds of acres of farmland.  Our mission is to create an elegant country destination wedding or event experience for you and your guests that is truly and distinctly unique.

Our Commitment Makes the Difference

At Oak Knolls Manor, we pride ourselves on building relationships with our clients.  Our business model is built around a simple concept.  We host ONE EVENT per weekend at our venue.


This provides our clients with the opportunity to slow down with their family and friends to create a destination wedding that they will never forget.


Giving our focused attention to each event avails itself to support our clients in creating a style and flair that embodies their personality.  This approach gives their day meaning and fosters individuality to allow them to create a unique experience for their guests.


Having time during the week with access to the venue allows our clients, their caterer, and their other service providers ample time to setup and create the backdrop they have dreamed of.


Our goal is to have every one of our clients feel like they have been cared for just like one of our own family members.


Thank you for considering Oak Knolls Manor for your upcoming event!  We strive to provide you with a meticulously-maintained, classic country property that provides a 'blank canvas' for your modern elegant destination event.

We have selected professional service providers to build a team to ensure that each event here at The Manor is a success and that our client’s vision can become a reality at our venue.  Our clients can focus on the enjoyment of their event and spending time with their guests.  We feel that each vendor is an expert in their area.  The mindset we share with our providers is that we all work together toward a common goal, which is creating a memorable event for both you and your guests.

Oak Knolls Manor has very high expectations on the quality of the service we provide our clients.  As part of our commitment to excellence, we want to clearly communicate expectations on the Event Booking process.

The Manor on the Hill

With a seating capacity of 250, the main barn is perfect for all types of destination events.  We have clients coming to us from Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Binghamton, Utica, Albany, and even downstate.  Our Wells Barn, built in the early 1900's, is one of the few remaining barns, built by J.T. Wells & Sons, that is still standing.  We have invested significant time, money, and most importantly heart, into rehabilitating this structure.  The attention to detail found in the 36-foot high arched cathedral ceiling structures is breath-taking.  


The main barn floor is over 4,000 square feet and provides a magnificent setting for weddings, corporate events, family reunions, fundraisers, and other special events.  The barn also features an additional 1,400 square feet of raised stage area overlooking the main floor, which provides a unique layout.

We offer one of the largest Wells Barns in Western New York, a Bridal Suite in our farmhouse on the premise which is available for use, ample parking with easy access to our facility, and picturesque views throughout the Barn, and from the decks over-looking the Genesee Valley. 


Additionally, we are ADA compliant, offer newly constructed restroom facilities, and options for wedding ceremony areas complete with several event layout options.
