When we began looking for possible wedding venues, we came across the Outback and was the best decision we could have made. The venue location sits beautifully in the bluffs and is isolated enough that we felt like our wedding was ours and everything we needed was either provided to us by Holly or was easy to find. Our guests stayed in LaCrosse and it was easy for us to get transportation to and from the venue. One of the biggest pluses was having the apartments available to us. We were able to arrive and stay at the venue the entire weekend. Which made everything less stressful for us. Cannot recommend this venue more.

Ahavah Cottage 


Elysian, MN
  • Up to 201 guests
  • Select services
  • Indoor & outdoor
  • Starts at $5,500

Ahavah Cottage is a wedding venue in Elysian, Minnesota. Located just an hour away from Minneapolis, this setting is ideal for couples seeking a tranquil, down-to-earth place to exchange their vows. 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!
