History and Other Info

A bride and groom sit front and center behind a fire pit as the rest of their wedding party smiles around them during their The Overlook at Geer Tree Farm wedding.

The Overlook at Geer Tree farm, as a wedding venue, has its roots in Christmas tree farming. No pun intended (sorry). The property has been family-owned by the Geers since the seventeenth century; it’s a working Christmas tree farm. What that means for you, as a nearlywed, is that they will handle your special day with care.

Perhaps surprisingly, Heavitree B&B is a wedding venue itself. Some couples who get married at The Overlook choose to also book Heavitree for overnight accommodations and/or getting ready before their wedding.
