You'll feel like family when your wedding is over!!
Where to begin with this amazing venue?! I get teary eyed thinking about our wedding weekend that they put on for us. If you are lucky enough to have your wedding here - you will meet Mark and Deena who are the stars leading their amazing team. Deena especially has weddings down to a science - she and their whole staff were there for us every step of the way in the wedding planning process. I appreciated the many phone calls and emails exchanged with the team figuring out logistics and making sure that every detail was planned out to match our wedding dreams. With their resources and expertise it made wedding planning easy - and on the day we were stress free as they take care of everything!Sent on 08/21/2019
We had a particularly large wedding and their entire team rose to the occasion and put on the wedding weekend of our dreams. During the weekend the staff took care of every. single. detail. Including when we ran out of beer the night before and Mark took care of it and made sure that we had enough for the wedding day! This venue/staff goes above and beyond every day and are committed to high quality and amazing service. We feel lucky to have such cherished memories at the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.

I'm not sure there are words to express how awesome the Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm, and the people behind it, truly is. The venue itself is full of unique and vintage character, the restaurant and food is wonderfully delicious, and the owners and staff are so warm and welcoming. It really makes for the perfect wedding venue.Sent on 09/07/2019
Wedding planning can be overwhelming, but Deena and the team are very organized and helped facilitate a great timeline for planning. Leading up to my wedding day Mark, Deena, Reeanne, and Moana were my go-to people. They were so responsive and caring throughout the whole process.
July 20th, 2019 just happened to be the HOTTEST day of the year and Mark & Deena, and the team, were so very accommodating and flexible for me, my party, and my guests. I was so nervous that my day was going to go awry due to the heat. I cannot thank the team enough for respecting my wish to have a ceremony outside, and for how well the whole day came together! They are true problem solvers and so very flexible!!
The Inn itself is lovely, and it truly made for such a wonderful weekend. It was so nice to be able to visit with family from out of state while enjoying the delightful atmosphere of the venue and prepare for our special day. I look forward to visiting again.
Thank you so much, Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.

An exceptional wedding experience!
I'm not sure where to begin. We had our wedding at Barley Sheaf 2 1/2 weeks ago and wish we could relive it all over again. From our first experience viewing the property with Mark we were wowed. Mark and Deena are very hands-on owners and make everyone feel special and welcome. As a theater professional, we also loved that the property was once owned by playwright George Kaufman and continued that theme to certain aspects of the day. The details of planning the event were with the fabulous trio of Deena, Abbey and Reeanne. These ladies are top notch with a great balance of knowing what works at the venue yet allowing the bride and groom to bring their ideas. Throughout many emails and a few in-person meetings we felt very comfortable that nothing was falling through the cracks in preparations. We had a plan at our ceremony rehearsal and the ladies knew the logisitics of the venue so well that they seemlessly facilitated how and when people entered down the aisle etc.Sent on 07/31/2019
Did I mentioned that you do not need to hire a wedding planner when you choose Barley Sheaf? You are in such good hands with the staff there. We had a snafu with a very late photographer on the wedding day and Deena was completely on the case helping us stay calm and making calls for a backup to arrive. In fact, several of the staff were calling or posting on facebook (which we found out the next day) to help out the photo situation. Guests were impressed with the beautiful outdoor setting and several asked "How did you find this amazing place?". Throughout the whole day the staff made us feel so taken care of. When we visited guest tables during dinner it was clear by the many empty plates that guests loved the food. Barley Sheaf is known for its food and did not disappoint. They are also very accommodating to any guests who have food allergies. It was lovely the next morning to leisurely eat a fabulous breakfast in the dining room among our guests who had stayed at the inn. We will definitely be back to dine for our anniversary...if we can wait that long. Overall we had an exceptional experience at Barley Sheaf and the wonderful staff. Thank you!
