Cool Water Events

What to do on-site?

Cool Water Events is not just a wedding venue, it's a whole experience. With its rich history, stunning views, and unique amenities, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Whether you're a history buff, nature lover, or just looking for a relaxing getaway, you won't be disappointed.

The property dates back over 100 years when it was a dairy, and more recently, a boys' school. The barn, which has been refurbished, can be used for pictures and has a 1900s doctor's buggy and a Model T for those wanting to take a trip down memory lane. Plans to rebuild the silo on the west side of the barn are in the works, and much of the original wood will be used on the exterior to maintain its authenticity.


Event Center

The event center was built for the school, with a full commercial kitchen and gas fireplace. It looks over the Payette River, and the views are breathtaking. The Tudor house by the river is also remodeled and ready for people to have a great family experience. Even though there are ongoing projects on the property, the event center is ready for your special occasion.


Keep busy or relax...

But Cool Water Events is more than just a venue. It's also a working farm, with hay and livestock. Take a stroll around the property and take in the sights and sounds of the countryside. Watch the animals graze, and breathe in the fresh air. It's the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

If you're looking for something more adventurous, the Payette River offers excellent fishing opportunities. Cast your line and try your luck catching trout or steelhead. The river is also perfect for kayaking and rafting. Take a thrilling ride down the rapids and experience the rush of the water.

Soon you'll be able to retire to one of the dry cabins available for nightly rental. They offer a cozy and comfortable stay, with the use of the bathhouse. And if you're traveling in an RV, there are limited spaces available.

Cool Water Events is a special place that the Hallman family wants to share with others. It's a place to create memories and have a wonderful experience. Whether you're planning a wedding, family reunion, or just looking for a relaxing getaway, Cool Water Events has everything you need for a memorable experience.
