Imagine driving down a tree-covered country road, dotted with wildflowers and farmhouses, the sun peaking out from the trees. You pull up to an expansive 30-acre property in the midst of it all. The beauty of this striking farm setting, nestled in the middle of a large field, is breathtaking. You immediately realize it’s not just any old barn, but a brand-new event space. You even feel as though you’re far from the hustle and bustle of downtown Sister Bay, but in reality, you’re just minutes away from it.
You’ve reached Northern Haus, Door County’s premier event destination. Northern Haus specializes in weddings, but also in family reunions, corporate events, retreats, classes and much more. Nick and Sara Anderson, owners and masterminds behind Northern Haus, have brought you “modern luxury meets Midwestern chic” in this incredible venue.
With plenty of parking, Northern Haus is perfect for any size event and designed to set the perfect backdrop for your vision. There are multiple options for both indoor and outdoor parties – but indoor, in our opinion, in the real showstopper. Walking into Northern Haus, you’re greeted with a modern, chic foyer with seating and space to mingle. Follow through the entrance and down a wide hall, you see the 36 ft. tall soaring ceilings of the barn — complete with beams and chandeliers — straight ahead of you.
To the left, you can’t miss the glamorous yet sleek and modern 24 ft. bar with cozy barstools and a smooth wooden top. Imagine your party guests sipping champagne as they saunter from the beautiful indoor space and through one of the six sets of doors to the picturesque scenery beyond. In summer, enjoy a perfectly manicured lawn and covered porch with Adirondack chairs. Open year-round, Northern Haus is climate-controlled and comfortable, no matter the season.
Do you imagine yourself saying your wedding vows outside? Northern Haus offers their “Forest Retreat” just steps from the barn to stage your ceremony. Back inside, walk upstairs to discover an additional lofted space for extra seating and lounging. Go down the hall, where you’ll find prep quarters to prepare for your event in ultimate luxury and comfort. The restrooms are elegant and very spacious – you and your guests will never have to worry about waiting in line.
When envisioning your perfect event, what’s more important than the food? Downstairs, just off the bar, the catering kitchen awaits for your premier caterer of choice to serve you and your guests. Northern Haus partners with many local restaurants to bring your catering needs to life, including the culinary talents and expertise of Alexander’s, Parador, McEvoy’s Culinaria, Door County Creamery, Flourgirl Patissier, and Seaquist Orchards.
