Excellent venue with amazing staff!
Chris and Barb have the perfect place for a rustic barn wedding! It gives that country feel right in the suburbs and they are so accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and very well kept. They respond to questions immediately and are always very clear. Would recommend this place to anyone!Sent on 01/17/2020

Magical - A one stop Picture Perfect Venue
This venue took not only men but my fiancé’s breath away. The heart and soul the owners Barb and Chris put into it, is evident in every tiny detail within the venue. From the grooms quarters to the brides room to the floor, the chandeliers, the tables... I can go on and on. The gorgeous touches, restored pieces from the milk farm, decorations in each section of the venue, words can not explain.Sent on 01/17/2020
The separate area for your cocktail hour with the whiskey barrels and a dream come true!!!
There are so many incredible values to this place, I feel like we found a diamond in the rough!
We looked at multiple venues and the vibes just weren’t there. My fiancé and I both got the chills when we pulled in to meet Barb (one of the most amazing humans I’ve ever met). We knew this was the place where we wanted all of our friends and family to celebrate our big day!
Barb is insanely helpful and accommodating.
She deserves an award for being awesome.
A lot of people we met with were a bit rough to deal with. She made us feel so relaxed to be there.
Don’t believe me that something so incredible exists on earth, in Huntley IL for that matter?
Go see it for yourself!

The first and only potential venue we visited
Lincoln Farmstead was the first and only venue my fiancé and I visited. The moment we stepped into the barn I knew instantly I had found the place on our first shot. I even have a video to prove it! My fiancé was away at work when I visited and I made him a video of the property and I whispered to him “I think we should get married here.” It has an undeniable charm where rustic meets elegant. It’s everything I had in mind when I pictured our big day. The property has a little of everything- pavilion, small barn for cocktail hour, gorgeous backyard for an outdoor ceremony, fire pit, bride/groom room, etc. So many special little areas all in one place. It’s a hidden gem and I haven’t even gotten to Barb and Chris yet. They are truly one of the nicest couples I have ever met. They are so warm and welcoming that when you meet them it’s like you’ve known them forever. They instantly make you feel like family. When they gave us the tour of the property it was so obvious how proud and excited they were. That genuine, organic passion they had for the barn and its history/future made our decision even easier. They loved it and they made it so easy for us to love it too. Working with them while we plan our wedding has been a breeze. I could not be more excited to have our wedding there in September!Sent on 01/19/2020
