Best. venue. ever.
An absolute dream come true!! The most beautiful wedding venue with the very best team. I can't thank Mark and Deena enough for making everything about our day perfect.
There is something very special about the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm and I fell in love instantly. Mark and Deena strike the perfect balance between making wedding planning feel fun and personalized while maintaining a high level of organization and professionalism that calms and assures you that all of the details are covered...and they were, every last one!
They LISTEN to you! During the planning stage, the entire team communicated with us frequently and took meticulous notes about what we envisioned for our wedding day. When we needed help, they suggested vendors and/or ideas, but never once pushed or pressured us into something we didn't want. Plus, they are flexible which we really appreciated because we moved out of state halfway through wedding planning and they didn't miss a beat. They are not a wedding factory. They are wonderful people who spend time with you and work to accommodate every request. Honestly, I will miss seeing them!
The grounds are stunning. The food is phenomenal (like really, really good). The rooms are gorgeous. The barn is completely renovated. The atmosphere is so romantic. The staff is unbeatable. I could go on and on and on...
We received SO many compliments about the Barley Sheaf and we had the time of our lives on our wedding day. I could not recommend this venue any more!

So happy we picked Barley Sheaf :)
My husband and I got married at Barley Sheaf in October. Barley Sheaf was the first venue we checked out and we immediately fell in love. Mark, Deena and the rest of the team were very responsive throughout the planning process despite that I may have asked them hundreds of questions. We were hoping for an outdoor ceremony under the trees and cocktail hour on the patio off the manor house but given the cold and rainy forecast several days out, we decided to move everything inside to the barn. Deena was amazing, calling all of our vendors to coordinate Plan B, including reaching out to the band to coordinate an early arrival of the drummer to avoid any disruption during the ceremony and cocktail hour. She handled this and other weather-related logistics with the other vendors without even being asked, which was so fortunate for me because I never would have thought of these logistics myself – especially just days before the wedding! Even in the rain, the venue was shockingly beautiful. Our pictures are amazing. There is a large fireplace in the barn which was burning during the ceremony which contributed to the cozy and romantic atmosphere and the acoustics were perfect for the string quartet. The staff at Barley Sheaf flipped the event space after the ceremony for the cocktail hour/reception in a matter of minutes. The entire day went without a hitch – my mom, my MoH and myself were completely stress free and didn’t have to worry about a thing. The guests have raved about the service and food. We will definitely go back again and again for brunches and dinners because the food is so amazing. Though the weather wasn’t what we envisioned, everything was more perfect than we ever could have imagined, and we are so happy we tied the knot at Barley Sheaf!

The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm is a beautiful venue, and can accommodate a large wedding or a small one. Abbey and Reeanne were extremely helpful to us in planning our wedding with 31 attendees. The owners Mark and Deena were gracious throughout the process, and the staff was attentive and flawless in execution the day of our wedding. The cocktail hour on the patio was excellent. Our guests were served dinner in the dining room of the manor house, and the food was amazing! We were so very fortunate to have good weather on the day of our outdoor wedding in the garden adjacent to the gazebo. We received so many compliments from our guests. Our wedding was perfect, lovely, and memorable! You will not go wrong in considering the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm for your wedding!
