NCW is a beautiful location. We were comforted knowing that our outdoor ceremony would have a space to move into if the weather turned (luckily, we had sunshine!). Jackie and Jeff made it so easy to plan the day and the details. The space is so beautiful, we hardly added decoration. Highly recommend NCW!

The surrounding woodlands and rustic indoor space make for a one-of-a-kind base for any couple's fairytale vision.

My husband and I had our marriage celebration here this past December 2023 and we couldn’t have been happier with the results. We originally had plans with another venue but they went up for sale and weren’t sure if they would remain a wedding venue by our date so we decided to reached out to Ahavah Cottage and they were more than amazing! With the timeframe we had left with having to switch venues, they worked with our budget and gave us all the information and vendors we needed to make our big day happen. Communication was always fast and they answered every question we had. Day of event went so smoothly, I don’t think my husband and I stressed about a thing! Staff were lovely and helpful and the venue alone is big and beautiful! Highly recommend this venue to anyone!
