Billie’s Cottage

The hire fee of Olive Grove also includes the use of Billie’s Cottage for last minute bridal makeup requirements plus any bathroom needs. It can also be used to simply enjoy the views from the balcony of our majestic lake and mountains before the service starts. There is ample parking here for the bridal party. The cottage opens, across a short path, to the Olive Grove where the bride makes her grand entrance down the aisle of Olive trees to the ceremony platform.
