Barn in the Bend sits on 40 acres of farmland in Madison, Tennessee. Nestled “in the bend” of the Cumberland River, this rustic venue offers multiple scenic views. Depending on which way you turn guest will be able to see the distant skyline of Nashville, beautiful farms in the distance and the pastures filled with horses and cattle on our well-manicured grounds. Two vintage-style barns and a two-story, colonial-style home grace the property as well.

Barn in the Bend is beautiful!
My daughter was married at this venue this past weekend and it was just beautiful! The venue is already beautifully decorated but you can add or change and make it your own. The bride and groom suites are so nice and bathrooms and kitchen are easily accessible. Jackie is the nicest person to work with and made everything so perfect for our family. We highly recommend this venue for any event and especially for weddings!Sent on 10/22/2020

Perfect Country Wedding
The venue chapel created a beautiful view that all of our guests raved about, the barn is setup and organzied beautifully with adorable country chic furniture, everyone loved the self serve photo booth and my absolute favorite part of the establishment are the bridal suite and groom's quarters. I almost made my groom switch with me so I could watch football since the quarters has a tv (it was Sunday). Jackie and Natasha are excellent. They answered all of my many questions, they were flexible with all of our requests, they are super responsive and best of all they are so sweet and fun to work with!Sent on 10/15/2020

AMAZING from start to finish!
I seriously cannot say enough good things about Barn In The Bend! We originally chose this venue because it was a great price, good location, and it included SO much in the package (some decor, bartender, coordinator, etc.) and I am SO happy we did! Jackie (venue owner) was always so helpful & quick to respond, and Natasha (Day Of Coordinator) was absolutely incredible. Both ladies were such a pleasure to work with! We got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue was as well. Seriously, cannot recommend Barn In The Bend more!Sent on 09/17/2020
