Our Story


After putting their kids down for a nap, Bridgett Johnson and Kate Manders were talking about life and what their dream careers would be. Bridgett mentioned she always had a passion and interest in the wedding industry and Kate mentioned she also had an interest in that along with wanting to own a Bed and Breakfast. This light hearted and pie in the sky thinking eventually led to presenting the idea and business plan to their other halves (Chad and Pat). After looking at a number of different properties in surround communities and finally seeing the farm house, guest house and historical banked barn in person, we knew we had found THE one! On November 4, 2015 we decided to take the leap, and purchase this property we now call Scarlet Oaks Estate!

Our vision for this small business is to keep it family owned and operated for the foreseeable future. We also want to continue being known as a well-respected and valuable member of the Findlay and Eagle Township communities. When visiting Scarlet Oaks Estate, our hope is that you see us as more than just another wedding and events venue. We hope you can see the passion, dedication and attention to detail our two families have put into this business to not only offer a unique experience to our local communities but also start a legacy for our young children!

Thank you for reading our short story and we look forward to continuing this journey for many years to come!
