Facilities and Capacity
The 1800s Wisconsin dairy barn sits on 160 acres and is accompanied by other buildings of historic nature nestled in an elegant natural landscape. The barn includes The Hayloft space for receptions. The Hayloft is the upper level of the barn and spans 62 feet by 34 feet, hosting up to 220 guests. Couple the Hayloft with the Milking Parlor to accommodate up to 300 guests. As the Hayloft displays the beautiful wood structure of the barn, the Milking Parlor will catch the eyes of guests for its historic fieldstone walls. Socialize by the fireplace or grab a drink at the bar area of this 58-foot by 34-foot space. The rustic elegance of the structures is matched with the outdoor surroundings and event spaces. Exchange vows on the South Patio, consisting of a fieldstone patio, or gaze upon the barn, horses or the hillside. Gather next to the century-old fence or on the hilltop that shows off the natural grass and pasture along with a view of the barn. Walk along the Garden Path – an entrance made of stone in the company of wild flowers. Other enjoyable spaces are the fire pit and courtyard off the Milk Parlor, where guests can mingle at the bistro tables shaded by café umbrellas.
Host an engagement party, bridal shower, ceremony and reception in one of the rustic and chic spaces. The full-service staff will help to personalize each wedding, and the venue includes an on-site wedding coordinator on the big day. Couples have the choice of four wedding packages. The packages range from traditional, casual and elopement-specific. For a winter celebration, the Winter Sizzle offers details that create a magical day that plays up the season of winter. For a more casual wedding event, couples can choose the Garden Party. A style more aligned with a traditional ceremony is the Formal Linen Flow. The Enchanted Barn attends to every detail regardless of wedding style. Other services offered include:
Savor farm-to-table cuisine at The Enchanted Barn or opt for artisan pizzas made onsite. Necessary food and drink items are also included, such as linens, napkins and mismatched glasses.

Was i dreaming, or was that a reality.
Where do we even begin… My Fiancé and I found the Enchanted barn on Pinterest over a year ago. A picture perfect venue. WHAT? How is that even possible. Well believe it or not, it's even more beautiful in person than it is online.
The enchanted barn is the definition of a fairytale venue and more. From the moment we walked into the venue both Andrew and I could not stop saying "WOW". Upon entry, you walk into the most breathtaking wooden barn, that has not been restored (what a novelty). A wooden barn that has been decorated with tea light candles floating from the ceiling that make you feel like you're in a wonderland. Just when you think that this is the best part of the barn, they mechanically open the doors to a beautiful landscape of horses in a field. A view so breathtaking, you almost wonder if your guests will be watching you. Once you have picked up your jaw from the utter excitement, and make your way down stairs, you are greeted by the most quaint little gathering area with tables and chairs and a beautifully done bar. With how perfectly this venue flows, you will soon find yourself wandering outside in a stunning courtyard that overlooks the pizza oven surrounded by a picturesque glass structure which looks so cozy and inviting. (one of the highlights of our wedding). Along with these amazing features, Lorin (the owner) has created a few others along the way. This was one of the most exciting parts about having a wedding at this venue. Whenever you thought it couldn't get any more perfect, he surprised you by adding something else. The best part about this venue however, was how naturally beautiful it was. This allowed us to spend little money on the décor, and allowed us to splurge elsewhere. We took the opportunity to splurge on the handmade (morning of) fresh, Amish donuts that were recommended by the venue, another highlight of our wedding.
The Enchanted Barn doesn't just stop at its beauty however both Lorin, Rebekah and staff were nothing but accommodating to our every need. They allowed us to visit the venue multiple times with different people not only to show them the beauty but also to finalize any last minute details or concerns we may have had. Rebekah acted as a wedding coordinator for me, which was more than I could've asked for within itself. She responded to every txt/ email and phone call within a few minutes. She was always so pleasant with her responses, helping me in any way she could or pointing me in the right direction for the appropriate answer. Rebekah and Lorin have an amazing vendor list lined up for you to use which made having a wedding in a different state a breeze. From Lacey our florist to Bistro 63, there was nothing but positive comments floating around the entire night. The whole night was orchestrated to perfection. I cannot say that I have ever been to a wedding so perfectly managed. I know those are bold words coming from a bride, but I couldn't point out a flaw even if I tried.
My favorite part of this wedding was how involved Lorin and Rebekah got with it. Their creativity and ideas are just pouring out with love. Lorin gave me the most amazing entrance a women could ever dream of. A surprise to everyone, especially my husband. On my wedding day, I had a double reveal. I got to be revealed not only from behind a sheer white curtain that hung so beautifully in the back of the barn, but I also got to be revealed from the "out looking" window of the barn. An alternative to the first look which was something from a dream. Standing in the field with horses just feet away, Lorin gave me a sense of calmness. Assuring me that everything was going smoothly and that I looked beautiful was just what I needed to hear in that given moment. Once revealed (once the windows to the barn opened) and I walked to my father who was awaiting me at the entrance of the barn, apparently the horses came running up behind me as if it had been the plan all along. Something that I got told repeatedly throughout the evening from our guests who were in awe.
The enchanted barn provides you with so much beauty and picture perfect views all in one. From their barn, to their bride/ groom room and shanty we couldn't have asked for a better venue or better people to help make our dreams come true.
Now that I have written a book, all I can say is that, if you have ever dreamed of getting married in the most beautiful barn. Look no further. With a choice of 3 wedding alters, the most beautiful wedding venue and an outstanding staff what more could you ask for?

Toured and will definitely be going with this venue!
We just toured the barn and I can absolutely agree with most of the other reviews on here: it is even more beautiful in person than in the pictures. We met with the owner, Lorin, and he was obviously so proud of his venue and cares so deeply about doing a good job. He was super flexible when we asked for specific things and I know that we are now in good hands!Sent on 10/07/2019

Elegant Timeless Wedding
First and foremost, the staff is what made this wedding what it was. If you want a barn venue, you can go anywhere, but if you want the support of the staff from start to finish, go to The Enchanted Barn. They went above and beyond to accommodate our every detail to make the perfect wedding more perfect. The attention to detail throughout the barn to maintain the elegant but rustic look is hard to put into words. We couldn't speak more highly about The Enchanted Barn. If you want a wedding to exceed your expectations from a locality, staffing, and atmosphere - look no further.Sent on 12/14/2020
The Enchanted Barn is absolutely amazing! The beauty, the stillness, and the experience that occurs at the barn is nothing but impeccable. I have photographed at the barn a number of times, and every time, Lorin and his team is top notch! Personable, easy to work with, and it's always a delight! The Glass Barn with the incredible pizza oven from Germany is beautiful especially during the winter. A nice little cozy barn with a full 360 view of the property. Pictures do the Enchanted Barn do no justice, it's the experience from the time you arrive on property... a true must see!
It was very nice working at this beautiful, one-of-a-kind rustic barn venue. Plenty of spaces for lots of activities. The staff was friendly and worked with vendors to make the day run smoothly.
The Enchanted Barn is an amazing and magical venue. You can easily plan the wedding of your dreams with this venue.
