A Rustic Event Center

– in Northeastern Oklahoma –

Oklahoma Lodge Style Event Center

When it comes to charming barn weddings, parties and events, there is no other place to consider in Northeast Oklahoma than our secluded event center, Back in the Pines.

A brand new, huge facility with a preserved rustic barn built literally inside the lodge, which makes for the perfect country style wedding and party venue. Our center is situated within the beautiful landscapes in northeast Oklahoma near Tahlequah, Oklahoma and in northwest Arkansas near Siloam Springs.

We host rustic weddings and events year round, taking advantage of our serene outdoor and indoor resources. We developed our facility to comfortably accommodate parties and groups upwards of 300 people.

At Back in the Pines, we’ve been inspired to believe that your wedding or event should be perfect. So we created the perfect event center to have that down home country feeling while providing a massive lodge with a huge commercial style kitchen, fireplace and all the amenities you’d expect to host your next celebration.
