Kinloch grove


history in the making…


Our family has enjoyed these 76 acres of prairie paradise for almost two decades. We’ve explored so much of what the Interlake has to offer from the sandy beaches, boardwalks, and boreal forests, to Icelandic settlements, the WAVE artist tour, and the Gimli Film festival.  Having a cabin in Matlock has provided us with the seclusion of country living but also the community and amenities of being close to Gimli, Winnipeg Beach and Selkirk.

Then, in February 2018, Allie got engaged and there was nowhere she’d rather be on her wedding day than at the cabin. As plans progressed to host her own wedding, we discovered that there were very few venues in the surrounding area. This sparked the idea for the newest outdoor event centre in the Interlake.

Now we are reinventing what our cabin means to us. We decided to use the name Kinloch from our connections to the Kinloch Hotel in the Isle of Mull, Scotland. It’s a fitting name for our business and location, as Kinloch means family-lake. Kinloch Grove is a blend of old and new traditions, and encompasses what the event centre, and company, values most of all; family.


Hi, my name is Alexandra Reardon Smith, but you can call me Allie. I've been working alongside my father as co-owners of Kinloch Grove since spring of 2018, meticulously building this new event centre to host your life’s most memorable moments.

As your Event Coordinator and main contact on site, Allie is excited and eager to bring your unique vision to life. With a BA in Global Political Economy, a Residential Decorating Certificate and proficiency in Apparel Design, no detail of your event will be overlooked. Through her travels, Allie has acquired many tools to make sure your event will shine, drawing inspiration from childhood memories, keen adventures, reflective journeys and wild daydreams. Working alongside your event planner, Allie will bring out the best in Kinloch Grove to fit the needs of your celebration.

We would love to hear more about you and of the story you plan to tell through your special event.  Let’s get planning!  


Meet Allie!
