Sauder Village, a blend of warmth and sophistication, is a full service banquet and conference destination located in Northwest Ohio. This 235-acre complex includes the Sauder Heritage Inn, Historic Sauder Village, Founder’s Hall, the Barn Restaurant, Doughbox Bakery and Campground.

As you enter the spacious, timber-frame lobby of the Heritage Inn, you will feel the warm hospitality. Our beautiful stone fireplace and cozy seating areas beckon you to relax. Throughout the Inn, atriums with live plants, natural wood timbers, hand-forged lamps and railings, and comfortable meeting rooms set the casual, friendly tone. Founder’s Hall, with its massive wood beams and beautiful iron and glass chandelier, is ideal for large group meetings. Historic Sauder Village, Ohio’s largest living history museum, is open seasonally (April – October). Here guests can experience history up close as our costumed staff leads many activities and demonstrations of daily rural life in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Enjoy the outdoors? Our campground features a lovely lake, walking paths, shade trees, showers and access to the indoor pool at the Heritage Inn. Sauder Village offers a unique destination for family vacations, retreats, classes, group tours and conferences.
