Scarbrough Haven is part meadow, part woods, part walking trails, part lake-front, part nature preserve, and 100% mesmerizing. It is truly a haven for the soul. Family-owned since 2007, the private and secluded estate venue is located just 75 miles east of Dallas in the city of Emory, TX. Our northeast Texas location consists of more than 800 acres spread across six distinct properties. Sixty-five acres are used for events ranging from an intimate gathering to large affairs. The highlights include the brand-new Aurora at Scarbrough Haven event venue, an open-air chapel, an enchanting greenhouse, an art-filled tea room, woodland walking trails, and lakefront access to Lake Fork – one of the top bass fishing lakes in the United States.

In addition to hosting our incredibly popular events and afternoon teas, our estate can be rented in part or whole for the following activities:
• Weddings

• Corporate Events

• Social Gatherings

• Personal Photoshoots

• Commercial Filming & Photo/Styled Shoots

Please contact us if you are scouting a rural Texas location that transcends the typical event venue.
