    Fairytale venue with amazing staff

    If you're looking for a fairytale dream venue - look no further! Mayowood is truly magical and our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was. Melissa is the best venue contact you could ever hope for - she answered thousands of my crazy emails with patience and grace. She was extremely helpful and when my coordinator had to leave our wedding at the last minute, Melissa jumped right in to help. Talk about rockstar! If I could have another wedding just for fun - I would do it all over again at Mayowood Stone barn.

    Absolute Perfection.

    This venue was perfect beyond our wildest imagination. Not only was the facility team accommodating, communicative, and organized, but the venue itself is even more breathtaking in person. Wide open nature, historic grounds, expansive reception and cocktail hour facilities, combined with gorgeous greenery, wildflowers, and renovated reception space is divine. By far and away the best wedding venue in the Midwest, let alone Minnesota.

    We just got married at mayowood stone barn last weekend and could not recommend it more. Melissa was extremely helpful and always so quick to respond. We worked with Adam for catering and he was incredible as well. Both went above and beyond to make the day perfect. Melissa let us come out 3 more times after the tour to calm my OCD about decor. Some family members made comments about the location (we are from the cities) but that was something we loved the whole time because only people who really wanted to be there came. In the end everyone loved that we got a getaway. We got the free trolley through the doubletree and went downtown with our friends after our rehearsal dinner and wedding and everyone had a blast in Rochester! The price of the barn compared to others in the city is incredible and the price we paid for a served dinner with passed apps and an open bar was nearly half of the city prices. We didn’t necessarily want a barn but did want an outdoor ceremony and a garden style wedding. Unlike other barns it was so easy to transform the barn into whatever you wanted being it does have a more fancy European vibe but also can be rustic. The day of the renovations made the barn more beautiful than we had ever seen before and guests were so stunned by the beauty of the venue! The property was perfect for us as we wanted a fancier wedding but loved that we could still be outdoors. Hearing so many people complain about things at their venue makes me so happy we went with Mayowood. They not only met our expectations but exceeded them and I would recommend the barn to anyone!!!

Hi my name is Jason and I am the owner of JPS Entertainment and I have been in business since 1989 and I have been the entertainment at the Mayowood Stonebarn for about ten years and I would give this venue a top ten rating. If you want a unique event, something that is completely different from the usually banquet hall, something that truly stand out, if you want amazing pictures, and a scenery that you will remember for the rest of your life this is the place. Another reason I would choose this facility because the staff truly cares and wants your event to be an event you will remember. The other things I truly love about this facility is they have their own sound system that is amazing, so my review on this facility, two thumbs up.
