We just renovated a 54’ x 19’ attached space in the barn that we originally used for storage space. We added 3 sliding barn doors with a 34’ opening for fresh air to come in the main part of the barn. We also just added an outdoor 34’ patio to dance under the stars. We moved in the 1925 bar. The barn originally was built in 1850. It was turned into a golf course/restaurant in 1925 and then it closed in 2010. We purchased the property in 2015 and started renovations. We opened in 2016.

A one hour rehearsal is included or you may upgrade to a two hour rehearsal and use our rehearsal room. It is available to rent to bring in your own rehearsal dinner for up to 40 people.

If you choose to have alcohol, we only use one bartending company, The Liquor Cabinet. Anything unopened is refunded. You can reach them at

    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!
