Those who have lived in the Great Lakes region for any period will recognize the magic in the phrase "heading up north." Everyone has that vacation spot that allows them to escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday and focus on what's truly important: family, friends, and fun.

The Brule River Barn’s focus has always been family. We renovated our barn for our daughter’s wedding in 2012 and continue to work to make each of our clients’ weddings as special as hers was. Our premiere Weekend Wedding Experience include our Farmhouse and Cottage so you can spend your time with your friends and family building some of the best memories of your life.

The best wedding decision we made

Where to even begin...
My wife and I got married at BRB about a month ago - and I have too many good things to say, but I'll try and distill the most important and unique points below.
1. Communication - Jill was amazing to work with, from the very start of the process, to the night of the wedding, to the days following.
2. Flexibility - We were overjoyed at the ways in which Jill worked with us to make the weekend our own. Many venues will hand over a sheet of rules - take them or leave them in a "one size fits all" manner. Jill was the opposite - she went above and beyond to ensure that the wedding weekend fit what we were looking for. In our experience - it's really rare to find a venue that has lodging on premises AND has a full weekend option.
3. Venue Beauty - The barn and the grounds are just gorgeous, especially the flowers and the ceremony setting under the trees. The barn itself, and the surrounding buildings, are beautiful. It's the type of place you'll feel at home at immediately.
4. Value - the experience we had at BRB was priceless, and we feel the price for what we got was more than reasonable.

Jill - THANK YOU. It was the best weekend of our lives, and there's not a single thing we would change.

And to anyone else, if you are considering booking the barn for your wedding, two words of advice: 1. Do it and 2. Go for the full weekend package - it really sets this venue apart and will make your wedding even more special.

Magical location

The location is so beautiful. Jill cares for the property and it shows. The stone walk way in "The Oakes" ceremony site was what sealed it for my daughter. If you have the resources, I would recommend doing the weekend package. We did the one day, and did accomplish most of what we wanted to make the day special, but the prep team felt rushed. This was our choice, not a reflection of Jill or the venue.

Absolutely Beautiful!!

Title says it all, it was perfect!! Beautiful scenery, beautiful area, beautiful venue!! I loved working with the owner, she was so amazing and just did everything she could to make sure our day was perfect, and it was!! She even has decor for you to use. Their own traditions made it so unique. I am thrilled we were able to have our celebration at the Barn! Thank you so very much!!!

I own A.T. Entertainment in Duluth, and we provide DJ/Photo Booth/& Event Lighting services throughout Minnesota & Wisconsin, and we have seen pretty much every venue within 150 miles of Duluth. The Brule Barn is one of our favorite venues to return to. The completely renovated two story barn is a perfect location for weddings, reunions, and more. Jill (the owner) is an absolute dream to work with, and makes things so easy. If you are looking for a barn style event this is by far the best venue around. We quite often will run sound for the ceremony underneath the beautiful Willow Tree, then transition right to cocktail hour and dinner on the first floor, and then get the party started on the second floor. We recommend adding some up lighting and a photo booth along with a DJ package at this event.
