Great event venue!!
My husband and I would recommend Yawgoo Bakes to anyone looking for a indoor/outdoor wedding venue!! Lynn and Rob were wonderful to work with. They both were extremely helpful and very accommodating, even with last minute changes. They helped make the wedding planning process very easy! A few of our favorite parts about Yawgoo Bakes was how private the venue is, the food and the fact you can decorate the barn to your liking! We had a vision for our wedding and we were able to achieve the perfect day. I couldn’t have imagined having our wedding at any other venue! Thank you Lynn & Rob - can’t wait until the next celebration we have at the Bakes!Sent on 01/27/2021

Beautiful No Fuss Venue
This place is a wonderful no fuss venue! We set up lawn games for everyone to play during cocktail hour (HUGE hit!) and even had a Del's truck and bouncy house! Then in the pavilion we had twinkle lights put everywhere for a very romantic feel. Food was high quality and enjoyed by everyone. Afterwards, we did a s'mores bar and bonfire where we gave out blankets...another huge hit. Everyone is still talking about how this was the most unique wedding ever but they enjoyed the change from traditional pace. Also, Lin was wonderful to work with and always able to answer any questions we had. Highly recommend.Sent on 01/27/2021
