From its humble industrial beginning as Canada’s first beet sugar mill located in Berlin (now Kitchener), the Hacienda Sarria has heavily evolved over the past century.
It was 1902 when the sugar mill was constructured, but by 1920 it shut down. The structure later served as a distillery, a scrap metal yard and the home of the M. Brown Steel Factory. By that point, the majority of the originaly structure had been destroyed leaving only a small section of the building.
In 2004, the transformation of the remaining structure began, and it quickly became the stunning, old-world style venue it is today, and one of Waterloo Region’s premiere, first-class event spaces.
A lot of the Hacienda’s design and inspiration came from the century old walk in Northern Spain called the Road to Santiago de Compostela.
Designed as a private residence, Hacienda Sarria provides a unique and incredible experience for guests. With a distinct European flair, Hacienda mixes luxurious traditional influences with locally sourced artwork, woodworking and stone masonry, creating and elegant and spectacular venue, with all amenities and services on site.
The Spanish-style estate’s secluded manicured grounds and grand stone courtyard provide an intimate and exclusive venue for events, and an enchanting atmosphere to create a magical and memorable day.
Simply come for a tour, and will fall in love with Hacienda! As you’ve learned, it’s always evolving.
