Beautiful venue with wonderful owners!
We celebrated our wedding here on June 15, 2019 and we could not have picked a better venue! Both barns, the farmhouse, and the surrounding countryside are beautiful and full of unique photo opportunities. We received nothing but compliments from our wedding guests on both the ceremony in the field and the reception in the larger barn. We also held our rehearsal dinner in the smaller barn, and it proved to be the perfect cozy space to spend time with our family and friends. My husband, myself, and our wedding party spent the evening before the wedding in the amazing farmhouse, and the accommodations were appreciated by all! Last but not least, the owners were a delight to work with! They worked with my hectic schedule so that I could visit and plan on numerous occasions; and they were attentive and present throughout the wedding weekend in case we needed anything! If you are looking for an incredibly scenic and peaceful venue for any event, this is definitely the one!Sent on 07/02/2019

Our wedding day
I love this venue. Our wedding day was great. I wish the AC would have worked better in the barn but the breeze was good. Other than that everything is perfect. Shelly and her husband were very friendly and great to plan with. I definitely would recommend this place.Sent on 07/02/2019

We loved this location from the first time we saw it and knew it would be the perfect place for our wedding. When we met the owners they won us over with all the information and history of the farm house. They made our day unfold perfectly with their helpfulness and flexibility with the amount of guest and slight changes made due to the weather forecast. We are so glad that we had our special day at this venue!Sent on 07/20/2018
