We are truly sui generis

sui generis is a Latin phrase that means "of its/his/her/their own kind", "in a class by itself", therefore "unique". 

This large sui generis timber frame venue blends the beauty of the wood with the abundance of natural light coming from the huge windows overlooking the beautiful lake.  The richness of the setting lends itself well to go from a simple event to a grand black tie affair. Twist of Pine was designed specifically to accommodate smaller parties with around a hundred or so guests in a non-traditional manner. 


The cooperative yet flexible design lends itself to events where a beautiful location, quality time, and great food and drinks are the main qualities guests are looking for. Twist of Pine personifies luxury and grandeur of an elaborate venue with a full-service location. 


Situated on approximately forty quiet and beautiful acres, Twist of Pine has a feeling of seclusion and privacy, but is still conveniently located just five miles from Yankton, South Dakota. In addition, regional airports in Sioux City, IA and Sioux Fall, SD are only about an hour away, making South Dakota a fun and different type of destination location. Large groups and events are possible on our 40 acres, so don’t be afraid to dream BIG, and work with our planners for your truly special and bespoke event
