The Pine Knob mansion is located at 5580 Waldon Road in Clarkston, Michigan 48348. Here is a link with directions to the Pine Knob mansion and the Pine Knob Carriage House. They are located about 100 yards from one another with the Mansion being a smaller facility up the hill a little. Both of these places have a beautiful place for brides getting married on “campus”. The Carriage House itself has a beautiful pavillion so weather will be less of a threat than it would be at the more intimate mansion up the hill. However having a ceremony at the Mansion has you high up on a hill with quite a vista. Both of these wedding reception venues are located about 40 minutes from Royal Oak Michigan’s I-696/I-75’s interchange, close to where Michigan’s Wedding DJ (Dan Nichols) lives. Anyway, finding it is a bit challenging if you haven’t been there at least once because it’s located in a beautiful housing community. It is however well marked with signs.
OK, so the food is very good but both facilities provide a little bit of a dj challenge as it relates to dancing. I much prefer the Mansion even though the dance area is in a completely different area than the dining room. The Carriage House has the dance floor at the tip of the triangle in the main room. The bar itself is not located near the dance floor nor is it on the way to the bar which frankly creates a challenge for a dj.
Both places are beautiful and really hard to beat as it relates to pure beauty. They are surrounded by the golf course and ski hills so it’s hard to find a bad view. I certainly rank both these wedding reception and ceremony venues as top shelf. The Carriage House holds over double the number of people though as the Mansion does so keep that in mind when booking your wedding.
