    My wedding is not until 10/8/2016 (however I most definitely stand behind my 5/5 rating for this establishment already), but I have already had an AMAZING experience with Historic McFarland House. Going to an event there for Shepherd University was my first taste and I met with one of their wonderful employees who gave me a quick tour once I told her that I was looking for a wedding venue. They are quick to answer any question by e-mail and are very accessible. I got quotes on venue prices on a few others in the Martinsburg/Norther Virginia area and Historic McFarland House is by far the best value I've found! After exchanging e-mails for a few weeks, I set-up another tour with my fiance and my mother and we were sold. We got to meet Chef Brad and are super excited to work with him on our food selection as he is open to trying new things for couples who aren't in to the "traditional" wedding food. The interior is decorated to perfection and the garden had a magical feel! Even though my fiance and I have a long while until our big day, we know it will be a stress-free road with the staff at the Historic McFarland House working with us!

    I haven't yet had my event, but the help received from the staff and the time they took to make sure that I had the information I needed, as well as scheduling the tour, confirmed to me that I have chosen the right place to hold my wedding!
