WEDDINGS & EVENTS AT OWL AND OLIVE
The Heart of Owl & Olive
The heart of Owl and Olive is our historic gambrel barn. Built in 1936, the barn provides a beautiful and unique setting to celebrate with family and friends. The warmth of natural old growth cedar and fir planks and timbers surround you. The vaulted ceiling soars overhead nearly 40′ to the inside of the cupolas. Tasteful accent lighting illuminates the rafters while three rustic barn-sized chandeliers and complimentary bistro lights combine to provide a warm glow on the gathering space below during both daytime and evening activities.
The Cafe at Owl & Olive
While not currently open for drop-in customers, the Cafe at Owl and Olive is at the service of our wedding and event clients. Located in the lower level of the barn, the Cafe provides a unique intimate setting to enjoy a variety of Italian and Mediterranean specialties. Rehearsal dinners, micro-weddings, art shows and corporate events - to name just a few - provide opportunities to warm up the ovens turn on the music and settle in for a one of a kind celebration in the Cafe at Owl & Olive.
On the Banks of the Upper Chehalis River
The natural surroundings of Owl & Olive is equally as beautiful as the historic barn. The barn itself and our two primary outside ceremony sites are perched on the banks of the upper Chehalis River. The venue grounds are a combination of landscaped gardens, wide-open pasture, and wild woodlands. From almost any location, the view will remind you that you are in the Willapa Hills - timber country - and of how blessed we are to live in the Pacific Northwest.
The Willapa Hills Trail
Located between Rainbow Falls and the Pe Ell Trailhead along the Willapa Hills Trail, Owl and Olive is proud to be a good neighbor and friend to trail walkers, hikers, cyclists and horseback riders. From Owl and Olive head west toward Pe Ell, over Pluvius Pass and on to Raymond, or head east toward Rainbow Falls and the farms of the Chehalis River Valley.
Aligned east to west, the Willapa Hills Trail runs 56 miles from Chehalis to South Bend intersecting with US Highway 101. Originally acquired by Washington State Parks from the Burlington Northern Railroad in 1993, the trail roughly follows the Chehalis River to the east and the Willapa River to the west.
