The Timberhouse at Rolling Acres boasts a beautiful banquet facility for wedding receptions, anniversary parties, golf outings, business meetings, and much more. The entrance to the banquet facility is through beautiful stained glass doors representing birch trees. These doors were handcrafted at Crystal Studios in Colorado. As you pass through these doors, you are in an entrance way with soaring ceilings where you will begin to get the feeling of the wonderful timberframe construction. Pictures of American wildlife deck the walls and antique chandeliers grace the entrance and the ballroom.
Also available for casual dining on an individual basis (don't need to be a golfer) for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is our large lounge area. Enjoy the beautiful large elk antler and metal sports figure chandeliers which grace this room, along with sporting and casual type artwork. This room is also available for small group functions.
On June 6, 1992, the clubhouse at Rolling Acres caught fire and was completely destroyed. Much thought was put into the type of structure that would replace it. After deliberating, it was decided that we would like to build a TIMBERHOUSE. What is timber framing? Simply put, it is a system of construction that relies on massive timbers to form the load-bearing skeleton of a building. This method of construction can be found in countless structures, including barns, churches, homes, storefronts, and pavilions. As testimony to its strength, timber-frame structures built in Japan during the 7th Century are still standing. Timbers were the principle building material from the Stone Age to the 1800's in Europe where trees were plentiful. The craft was advanced through a system of guilds, which are associations of medieval origin. Within these guilds, literally hundreds of types of secret, hand-carved joints -- the nail-less connection of timbers -- were developed. Mortise and tenon, scarf, tounge and fork, and dovetail are just a few examples of joinery subsequently passed down from generation to generation of craftsmen.
