Pondview Barn was the most wonderful location to have our wedding reception. The owners Barb and Randy were absolutely wonderful to work with! My husband and I planned our wedding from 400+ miles from this location and Barb and Randy ensured that planning the reception would be smooth---and they fulfilled this promise! The wedding reception planning went out without a hitch. Barb and Randy were quick to respond to e-mail inquiries and allowed us to come to the barn location as many times as we needed to review the space, plan seating, decorate, etc.Sent on 10/12/2018
We reviewed several different venues prior to selecting Pondview Barn and my husband and I were frustrated by the short timelines that many venues give you due to booking several weddings in a weekend (e.g., the earliest you can enter the venue is at 1:00 PM to decorate and everything needs to be removed from the space by 11:00 PM that day). We did not experience any of these limitations with Pondview Barn---the owners are very accommodating and are invested in making your day as special as it can be. They even joined our family in helping set-up tables, prepare the space, set-up decorations, and clean-up the following day. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
The space itself is beautiful! The main level and loft are beautiful and fulfill the barn ambiance. The lower level was well-loved by our guests as it is filled with spaces to seat around the fireplace and for the children to play with toys. The outside patio is beautiful! The space and the owner's make this place a 5 stars option for weddings!
