What makes us so differnt?

At Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, we believe in wedding days that are gorgeous and elegant, yet relaxed and fun. Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens is the only truly historically preserved barn venue in the tri-state area and we appeal to couples who are looking for a very distinct and different feel to their wedding day.

Bridal couples who choose to hold their wedding celebration at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, do so because they embrace the beauty and elegance of the Grand Barn, Tobacco Barn and surrounding grounds, as well as the relaxed comfortable environment. A beautiful ceremony and elegant reception mixed with lawn games, courtyard fire and easy conversation are the norm. We are definitely a niche’ venue for couples who desire a day that reflects their own personal style and not a “cookie cutter” event.

Grand Barn - Seats up to 175 guests for your reception

With rafters reaching 35 feet high and over 3600 square feet of floor space, the Grand Barn at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens is the perfect melding of rustic elements and elegant accents. The ivory ceiling draping falls in soft romantic billows as it hangs from rafters high above. The sparkle of chandelier lighting adds the perfect touch of elegance while accent lighting illuminates the honey-colored wood of the walls and massive beams making it the perfect place to gather for your beautiful reception.

Tobacco Barn - Seats up to 175 guests for your ceremony

Boasting gorgeous white beams accented with the original antique hardware and the most incredible floor and stage area you could imagine. Just as they did for drying the tobacco that hung from the rafters, large hinged panels and small louvers prop open and make this a unique showpiece that just cannot be found elsewhere.

Bar and Lounge

Our beautiful outdoor bar and lounge has the perfect blend of industrial chic elements to draw guests in for a relaxing hang out space. Gorgeous concrete, wood and metal decor coupled with super comfy furniture allows guests to mingle and chat during cocktail hour or throughout the reception without missing any of the action happening in the main venue.

Incredible venue, highly recommend!

I don’t even know where to begin with how incredible this venue is. Dawn and Brian are absolutely amazing and have such a great team here at the Homestead. You can tell how much they genuinely care about their couples and how family-oriented they are! From our first visit to the venue, we felt so comfortable here and so excited for our wedding. They have also built the ultimate preferred vendor team that works together so well and makes the day run incredibly smoothly. You can feel the love as everyone we talked to about the Homestead is so excited to be a part of any Homestead wedding day! The staff went above and beyond every step of the way to ensure our day was amazing. Dawn and Brian both worked tirelessly to help us carry out our vision for our wedding day putting in many hours answering all our questions and making sure we felt prepared and excited. Everything was perfect for us thanks to both of them, the rest of the team, and our amazing Stoltzfus coordinator, Ginger! We had such a beautiful and stress-free day! Our guests raved about the gorgeous venue and how they had the best time exploring the property and being able to enjoy the lawn as well as both beautiful barns and everything in-between. Thank you so much to Dawn, Brian, Ginger, and the entire Stoltzfus Homestead team!

Stoltzfus Homestead & Gardens is a 10/10!!

My husband and I were married here on June 17th. If you are considering booking Stoltzfus for your wedding, you will 100% not regret it. When I tell you everything was absolutely perfect, I mean it. From the day we booked our wedding date, Brian and Dawn (the owners) were so helpful, kind, and welcoming. Guests have been raving about how amazing everything was. The property is beautiful. There are so many little spaces for guests to mingle, play games, and enjoy their time during the reception. If you do choose to go with Stoltzfus, you will enjoy every minute of your wedding day and have absolutely no worries at all. I wish I can go back and relive our perfect day, all because of the amazing staff at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens!!

High Recommend! More than we could have imagined..

Simply incredible experience. Dawn, Brian, and Ginger made us feel like we were a part of their family from the get go. Everything flowed so amazing on the wedding day and the prep beforehand was thorough and made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. The property is beautiful and the amount of time they spend on the landscaping and getting the venue ready for the day was more than we could have expected. So many of our guests asked, " where did you guys find this place?! It is beautiful!!" The amount of space and different areas around the property give you so much flexibility for pictures, ceremony, and simply for guests to enjoy throughout your wedding celebrations. We really couldn't have imagined our day to turn out any better and so much credit is due to the Stoltzfus team and Ginger for everything that goes into it behind the scenes and for the way they treated us the entire time. Highly recommend!!!
