History

The property was built in the 1860s, with a complete refurbishment in 2013. It contains many of the original farm buildings, including the corn crib and old milking station.

    Our Perfect Wedding at Mimosa Barn

    We absolutely loved working with Paula at Mimosa. She was quick to respond to any questions we had and helped out with so much leading up to and on the day of our wedding. We booked our date pre-COVID and kept it so I cannot speak to how any postponement would be handled but this venue was the perfect fit for us and as it is very open and outdoors it ended up being great for a spread out welcome party, ceremony and reception. The space is gorgeous for photos and you are just minutes from downtown Cape Charles. We couldn't imagine having done this anywhere else!

    Beautiful Venue!

    Mimosa Barn was just amazing! I could not have asked for a better wedding venue. Being right on the water made our day just beautiful. Paula was a joy to work with! She was very helpful and willing to answer all of our questions

    Stunning Venue That's Very Customizable

    Our wedding was in April 2019, the Mimosa Barn was absolutely gorgeous! This venue has a spacious well-manicured lawn that overlooks the Cherrystone Inlet and a great dance floor/bar inside the barn. This venue also has a suite attached to the barn for the bridal party to get ready in. I would highly recommend the Mimosa Barn to anyone looking for an elegant but slightly rustic wedding.
