I had my wedding here 5.17.19 and everything about it was perfect starting with Kim, the manager. She was professional and quick to respond, as well as knowledgeable. She helped us plan our day and made the whole process very easy. The barn itself was clean and absolutely stunning. I love that the whole space was ours for the night. All of the staff was incredible. To top it all off, it was very reasonably priced. There were no hidden fees, you can bring your own decorations and you are free to choose your own caterer. They do have a preferred list of vendors but you are free to choose any professional caterer for a small fee of $400. You pay for a bartender service but stock your own bar so you aren't paying for a premium bar package just to get one certain liquor. You buy what your guests will drink. So very thankful we chose this venue!!Sent on 05/20/2019

The barn was great! It's definitely DIY, which is what I wanted. We were able to spend a little extra to be able to set everything up on THR for our FRI wedding, so everything could be how I wanted it. You can bring in your own alcohol, which saved us some money as well, and the caterer (Maravelas) was also affordable and fantastic. Parking is easy and we even got a free shuttle to/from the hotel. Highly recommended!Sent on 09/22/2017
