  • Where are you located?
    Arlington Acres is located just a few miles west of Tiffin, Ohio on 120 acres right off of State Route 18. Arlington Acres is only 50 miles southeast of Toledo, Ohio. It is also equal distance to Detroit, Cleveland or Columbus, so it makes for an excellent meeting place in northwest Ohio. Our couples live all over the state, and country, but most of our couples come to us from northwest Ohio. It’s very typical to have brides book with us from Tiffin, Fostoria, Findlay, Fremont, Upper Sandusky, Bowling Green, Sandusky, Gibsonburg, Republic, Bellevue (just to name a few). When couples book their wedding at Arlington Acres, we offer them a list of hotels nearby. The majority of the lodging recommendations given are within 5 miles of the barn. We've had many families use Tiffin as a mini-getaway weekend!
