Since we opened we've hosted many happy couples on their honeymoon or romantic getaway, but over the last few years we're getting more and more weddings here now as well. Piebird is the perfect wedding/celebration venue for you! Lots of love and beauty everywhere!

Call us at (705) 724-1144 to book your special day! Piebird is a place full of Love!

Beauty awaits. Plan for us to make a homegrown vegetarian feast (everything at Piebird is actually vegan!). Book all of the rooms in the Guesthouse for the wedding party or let your family/friends stay over in our Birdhouse Cottage.

We have several photographers who have a special relationship to Piebird. Doing many shoots here they know the spots and the light to capture your day beautifully. We can provide you with the contact info for our photographers.

(We like to build a special new arbour for each summertime wedding.)
