What is Windsong Acres, and How is it Used?

Windsong Acres is a peaceful and rustic country setting located near Camp Point, Illinois.  Featuring two renovated historic barns (the "Hay Barn" and the "Scale House") that are available to rent for special occasions.  The grounds include extensive gardens, porches, and a large koi pond.  Since opening in 2010, owners Jeff & Shelly Rasche have hosted hundreds of people for weddings, bridal or baby showers, business meetings, rehearsal dinners or romantic dinners for two, and many other special events.  

Most events are private and tailored to your specific needs (elegant, casual, inside, outside, catered or bring your own food, etc.).  We also offer a limited number of public dinners (such as Christmas & Valentine's Day), with seating by advance reservation.  

Shelly, a professional freelance commercial artist, has also offered children's art classes and stained glass classes for adults.

Directions to Windsong Acres



Windsong Acres is a nice rural get a way to the past.  It was so interesting to see an original scale house and all of the intricate work that was done to restore it.  It was  like a step back into time.
 
The food was delicious and it provided a restful atmosphere to enjoy dining with friends and family.   We highly recommend  Windsong Acres for a delightful evening.

Windsong Acres is a beautiful place for any special event.  The Scale House is just amazing.  I attended a recent candlelight dinner and it was awesome.  The food, atmosphere, and service were great!  I highly recommend Windsong Acres for any special event!

Jeff and Shelly, Thanks so much for a great evening. The Scale House has turned out to be a special show place to visit.  Your hospitality was very warm and inviting from the first steps into the door.  We felt very relaxed sitting by the fireplace enjoying our meal and visiting with others. We look forward to visiting again!
                   Thanks Again!   Brent and Bev
