    Beautiful location. Professional and friendly staff, Highly recommended!

    The following is a letter sent to Preston Barn. It expresses our happiness with the venue and the people there.

    Dear Helene,

    Matt and I extend our deepest thanks and appreciation for the unique blend of professionalism and personal attentiveness you possess and shared with our family and friends before, during, and after our daughter Ellen's wedding to Josh Castillo. Your attention to details we would have surely regretted missing sets Preston Barn apart from any other venue we have heard about after having attended quite a few weddings in the last few years.

    With Ellen and Josh living nearly 3,000 miles away, planning their wedding was a challenge. Ellen and Josh did much of the work, including being primary liaisons between all of their vendors. So while you may not have had much direct conversation with Matt and me, we were aware of emails with Ellen. Throughout the months we became more and more relaxed and comfortable leaving the weekend logistics firmly in your hands. Peace of mind is a special gift and we thank you for giving that gift to us.

    Preston Barn and Old Drovers Inn is such a special place and truly unique wedding venue. I know I speak for our family. We are grateful to have met you; toured the property; and decided, along with Ellen and Josh, to have their weekend wedding celebration there. Each agreement was met and each promise kept. As business owners ourselves, we believe this is exactly how to treat people and we wish you and your team the very best and long lasting success. Feel free to share our email address or phone number should anyone request a reference. We have nothing but kudos to share!

    Sincerely,

    Jeanne and Matt Reinhard

    This is place is good for any occasion!

    We don't use this place for weeding, but for a company event.
    Definitely, the venue is well located, has a great structure and the support is amazing!
    The place is rustic, but with flower decoration, it can surprise you.
    I appreciate all assistance we received and care.
    Thank you.
