Since 2017, Twinbrook Retreat, in Gap, Pennsylvania, has been providing not only a wedding venue for couples but also a place to reconnect. The property is owned by Merv and Candance who love to help you use the space in ways that help make your occasion truly special. This is a place for connection and fostering bonds, an ideal atmosphere for couples as they begin their new life together.
Facilities and Capacity
Twinbrook Retreat features a historic barn that has been refurbished with modern comforts. These renovations began after the property owners consulted their faith, a guiding factor in their running of the space. Surrounding the barn is rolling terrain. In addition, streams gently meander through the property, adding to the tranquility and calm of the grounds. It is this ambience which is infused throughout the location, helping to support the spiritual nature of the place. The barn itself has enough room for between 80 and 100 people. In settings with only chairs, the location can accommodate up to 200. Outside, there is a landscaped area as well as a patio and gazebo, ideal areas for your loved ones to mingle and enjoy the festivities.
Merv and Candace seek to be a supportive presence to couples that choose Twinbrook Retreat. One of Candace’s roles, along with employees Kathryn King and Roxy Zook, is to help coordinate events at the barn. You can rent the barn for more than your ceremony and reception, as the location is also well suited for anniversaries and wedding showers. You may choose from different packages, booking the inside, the outside, or both. Tables and chairs are also provided, as is access to a parking area for guests. Additional items are available for rent, such as centerpieces and technological equipment.
The story of this location goes back for hundreds of years. The barn itself was constructed in the 18th century, giving you a storied setting for your vow exchange and celebrations. The property itself was part of a land grant from William Penn, the founder of the state, to his brother. It was purchased by the current owners in 2015 and became a place for events and retreats in 2017.

Beautiful February Wedding
Our youngest daughter's wedding was held at Twin Brook Retreat on Feb. 13th. What a great experience. The owner's Mervin & Candace Beiler were wonderful to work with. We had the 1st floor and basement reserved. We had the wedding food venue set up in the basement and then the reception was held in the banquet hall on the 1st floor. Twin Brook Retreat is located about 2 minutes from our home. We loved that. We chose to reserve the airbnbs for some of our wedding guests. The owners were more than willing to accommodate our needs for lodging. The day of the wedding was a busy day but I knew everything was in order to have a really fun day. There had been a snow storm about 1 week before the wedding. The snow on the landscape made for some really beautiful pics. We have another daughter and are really hoping that she chooses to have her wedding at Twin Brook. All in all, we had a really great experience working with Twin Brook Retreat.Sent on 02/17/2021

Gorgeous venue, helpful staff!!
Merv and Candace, the wonderful couple who own this venue, were an absolute dream to work with. Their venue seemed to just get better and more beautiful with every turn we took around the property. The grounds are gorgeous. We got married next to a bubbling creek at the base of a magnificent old tree, but there is another beautiful ceremony site to choose from as well (a lovely gazebo!). I loved that they had Airbnb units on the property for my out of town guests, as well as a unit that I used as a getting ready space. The venue has many different resources available, including a separate set of chairs for the ceremony and reception so that we didn't have to worry about moving chairs from the ceremony site to the reception. Their sound system was incredible quality, and we had no technical difficulties at all. The barn was the perfect spot for our reception-- so beautiful, and they have both round and long rectangular table options available depending on the look you want and how many guests you have. They had tablecloths, dinnerware, coffee makers and mugs, linens, and more available for rent. Merv and Candace were so kind and communication with them was strong, making it all such an effortless, enjoyable process. Can't recommend this venue enough!!Sent on 12/08/2020

I had my wedding here May 2019. The venue and the 3 air BnBs are absolutely stunning. The Beiler's were incredible, so attentive and made sure that everything was perfect and went without a hitch. I thought I was just renting a venue but we got so much more. Highly recommend this venue for any party or wedding- they're absolutely wonderful!Sent on 07/25/2020
