Last week I had the delightful treat to have a personal tour of Bliss Manor Farm by gracious owners Bob & Michelle Humphreys.  So what is Bliss Manor Farm?…a venue, an event center, a farm, or a grand estate? All of the above! But my description would call it an Event Experience.  

The vision and passion for events that this couple has took my breath away.

Briefly I will tell you about the venue(s), the farm and the grand estate.

The indoor & outdoor venue(s):

  • A large barn.. but not an ordinary barn. This is new construction that is sparkling clean with high lighted ceilings, a heated floor, skylights and large rolling barn doors. With a capacity for 150 and a large adjacent area for parking all you need to do is add some decorations, food and music and you have a party.
  • An outdoor deck venue- like no other, this is a long series of decks positioned toward the view with covered group areas and the most massive bench swings I have ever seem. Listen to the sound of the waterfall as you look out at the peaceful ponds with swaying reeds. A large tile pizza oven turns this setting into a gourmet pizza party.

The Farm and Grand Estate: As you enter through the gated entry onto this 22 acre pristine u-cut tree farm with a spectacular view of the Olympics and manicured gardens you will meet the friendly farm animals; goats, dogs, ducks and chickens all tucked into sweet homes. It is located on Key Peninsula- 20 mins/ 12.5 miles from the Gig Harbor Costco.
