    Perfect Small Venue

    Alison, the venue manager was extremely responsive, helpful, flexible, and accommodating. We held our 70 person wedding here - the venue was perfect for this size. The landscape was stunning and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue and scenery were for the November 2nd wedding. If you’re looking for something all inclusive this wouldn’t be it but the unique and beautiful setting, environment, and experience are well worth the amazing photos and memories.

    We need to have another wedding!

    The Barns of Madison County was the best decision we could've made for our venue! We used them for both our ceremony and reception. From start to finish, their team was accommodating, professional, and so fun to work with. The venue itself is gorgeous, and offers an experience that makes you feel like you're in your own little world. Our guests are still raving about the views and the beauty of the barns.

    We are ready to do it all over again!!! Love this place!!!
