Congratulations on your engagement! As you have probably heard, there have been some changes with the Chism House wedding venue. After many blessed years in the wedding industry, the new land owners are now changing their plan for the wonderful property. As a result, it will no longer be a wedding venue. The exciting part of this transition is, however, that we are moving our incredible customer service, experience and reputation to a spectacular new venue in Genoa, Nevada. With that, we'd like to introduce Cottonwood Cottage wedding and events venue! For those of you who have previously visited Genoa, you know how incredible this quaint historic town will be as a beautiful backdrop to any wedding and reception.  Plus, it is only a short drive from Reno with plenty of lodging options for traveling guests. We have been so excited to fine tune the remodel project on the new building and would love the opportunity to schedule a tour to show off our plans and upgrades for both the outdoor ceremony location along with the indoor/outdoor reception space. We have just completed the transition of the website and email contacts, so if you have had trouble reaching us during the last two months, those complications have been corrected and we are in full swing and booking dates for 2016 and 2017.

Please visit our website at www.cottonwoodgenoa.com or call April Haymond 775-250-1791 with any questions that I can answer for you including information on our all-inclusive wedding packages. Looking forward to hearing from you!


Chism House, which is located across from the Truckee River, has been restored to Victorian Elegance with pond, fountain, and lush grounds.   Summer garden weddings can accommodate up to 200 people with ceremonies taking place by the arbor next to the beautiful large pond.  Receptions follow on the paver deck covered with a romantic tent and shady trees.
Ceremonies during winter can accommodate up to 40 people in the Victorian house with a large fireplace to keep you cozy.  The ceremony takes place in front of the large marble fireplace in the parlor with cocktail style reception to follow in the house with its fabulous view of the pond and grounds.
Chism House specializes in personalized weddings. Bring your dog to be the ring bearer, dance down the aisle, ride up on a motor cycle or in a carriage with horses, you can do it your way!  Friends and family love the comfortable ambiance of the house and grounds. 

 Chism House is conveniently close to the major downtown hotels and there is a lot of parking available. Please feel free to call us. April Haymond 775-250-1791

 Chism House, the perfect location for Reno weddings!
