Magical Wedding Day
Our daughter’s wedding took place last weekend at The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm. This is truly a magical setting; a beautiful manor house with impeccable landscaping and historic accents provided the perfect picturesque backdrop for an outdoor tented wedding. With the current restrictions and health and safety guidelines to move outdoors, Deena, Mark and staff quickly transitioned our vision to a beautiful tented intimate wedding. The wedding day was seamless and exceeded our expectations.
From the attentive professional staff to the phenomenal farm to table dinner, no detail was left out.
From day one, we were treated like family and any questions or concerns were answered and put to rest. The owners are on site and working throughout the evening to ensure everyone’s needs are met. How impressive!
From start to finish, this day was magnificent. Our family continues to rave about the beauty of the farm and the great celebration that was had by all.

Just Say Yes
Everything you read in all these reviews is true. This place is utterly enchanting and run by the kindest, most attentive couple I've ever met in hospitality - Deena and Mark Frank. Deena and Mark will make you feel like they've adopted you and your loved ones. They just care.
COVID turned our 200 person New Jersey-venue wedding in March into a 30 person wedding at the Inn at Barley Sheaf in August -- and we would not change a thing about our wedding day. We had about 20 others stay on-site with us for the weekend and everyone fell in love.
Our wedding was spectacular: the events team is flexible and professional, the light-filled rooms have character, the food is DELICIOUS, and the hospitality is gracious and always generous. This is the place to hold any event, big or small.
My husband and I decided to stay an extra night after all our other guests had gone home. We were eating breakfast on the restaurant patio the next day and we just had this MOMENT looking out on the magnificent view and watching all the butterflies swirl around the flowers. WHAT IS THIS PLACE? We absolutely can't wait to go back and visit for anniversaries to come. You better be expecting us, Mark and Deena!Sent on 08/13/2020

Everything you've always dreamed in a venue. Yes. No, I'm not exaggerating.
Why Inn at Barley Sheaf would be right for you:

- You want exceptional, delectible, exciting, yet crowd-pleasing, food. And a chef that will honor every allergy and diatariy restriction.
- You want your family and wedding party to stay on-site at the venue and make memories together for the wedding weekend
- You want to be near amazing culture, flora, fauna, food, other hotels (stunning and affordable) and activities for your guests.
- You want an inclusive and joyous atmosphere.
- You want guidance and help in the planning and execution of the day. And even it you don't, you can hand it over day-of and they will take care of everything. (Hit me up at @alliesante on twitter or insta and I will tell you how incredible this team is. I work in catering and wedding planning and I've never, never, NEVER worked with or seen a better on-site team.
- You want to make forever friends with the owners of one of the most beautiful Bed and Breakfasts in the area.
- You want to enjoy your wedding. Every second. They take care of you.
I know you have so many questions. So, so many logistical questions. Mark and Deena at the Inn at Barley Sheaf have your answers. And the answers to questions that you didn't even know you had.
My husband and I had the best day of our lives. And we will never stop thanking this team for our weekend. I am a planner and worried as much as anyone could. Only Deena could have reassured me and taken from my hands and executed the most important party of my life.
Our guests will never stop thanking us. It is our luck that our guests think that we were their hosts. Mark and Deena were the hosts and Mark and Deena and their incredible staff made it all happen.
I am forever grateful.
