We have a nice surprise we are working on in February of 2022. In the barn, we have about 50 feet long that we haven't used and we are going to open the wall connecting and it will have a larger bar with taps and a large dance floor with beautiful lights and antique architectural pieces. You will be able to view it from inside the barn. It will all be connected. It will also have 2 barn doors for approximately 24' opening for fresh air to come in the main part of the barn and an outdoor patio. We are very excited.

Your ceremony is free if you have your reception with us. We do not charge extra for it. We are open from the 3rd weekend in April through the second weekend in November.

For Friday events, you may decorate for 2 hours on Thursday afternoon.

    Best staff

    We had our wedding here during COVID, the week prior we had to move to a completely outdoor wedding and it was zero stress because Phyllis had it completely taken care of! Beautiful backyard setting that makes you feel like you’re home!
