Owners Heather and Chelsey were amazing to work with from the very start. That was important to us as we live in California and were planning the wedding from across the country. We reserved the venue over a year ago when the renovations of the barn, pad and tent weren't complete, but had faith that the promised overall would be amazing. And we were not disappointed!
The barn is stunning- with open windows and doors on both sides- perfect for dancing and can accommodate an 8 piece band. They have also redone the "stables" which makes for a perfect cocktail party location- just off the barn so a perfect location.
The tent and concrete pad easily accommodated our 145 guests - lighting in the tent and flowers surrounding completed the look. The 11' farm tables were gorgeous, as were the chairs.
We did not have the actual wedding ceremony on the property, but the first look and other photos were done at the ceremony location - beautiful with a wonderful view of Keuka Lake.
As to the house- it is gorgeous, especially the kitchen and master bathroom. We rented the house for the day- and the bride, bridesmaids and other women family members got dressed there, as well as were served a great breakfast and lunch.
And I have to talk about the food- when was the last time you were at a wedding and everyone raved about the meal? Heather is a terrific, accomplished chef. From the tasting menu back in March, to the breakfast and lunch for the bride and bridesmaids, to the appetizers ( quality and quantity! I would highly recommend the stationery cheese/veggie/antipasta bar) and family style dinner, it was all amazing.
And the highest compliment- so many of our guests were talking about possible events they could hold at this venue- we are hoping to do the same. Thank you, Chelsey and Heather, for making this past weekend a success. You are the best!

Amazing venue, and even more incredible are Chelsey and Heather. Chelsey was so great at guiding me through the wedding planning process and listening to my incessant questions. Heather did an amazing job with our food. From the tasting to the rehearsal dinner, then cocktail hour and dinner the food was excellent and our guests agreed. The bridesmaids stayed at the farmhouse the night before, and everything ran really smoothly the day of our wedding. Thank you so much for making our day special!
