Event Venue & Boutique

The White Oak Cottage was founded by Melanie Bentley-Montanaro and Shaunessy Dobish to bring their passion for decor and love for events together. With an eye for design and love for making others happy, Melanie and Shaunessy have brought together a team who is here to help you with all of your decor needs or plan the event of your dreams!

The boutique at The White Oak Cottage has a mix of unique pieces that will either be the focal point of any room or accent your already fabulous space! The boutique also is home to many local vendors who pour their heart and soul in to their products. From custom made benches, hand-poured, soy wax candles and tarts, beautiful jewelry to a fabulous clothing line, The White Oak Cottage has something for everyone.

The event space at The White Oak Cottage is one of a kind. With the touch of rustic and mix of glam you are invited to a ‘blank canvas’ where if you can dream it, we can do it! The event space is an open concept with beautiful wood tile floors, massive chandeliers, and can hold up to *150* guests. We have a wonderful team here ready to help you plan your perfect event. The White Oak Cottage can host your next work party, birthday party, Anniversary celebration, graduation party, your WEDDING, and so many other events. The options are endless.
