Look No Further To Make Your Wedding Day Magical
The day was meant to be magical and wonderful and all the things dreams are made of, and IT WAS!! The professionalism and "can do" attitude of the McDowall Acres staff was top notch. They were extremely supportive and said on more than on occasion when we were trying to make decisions about the decor, "let's do our best to create the bride's vision", and they set out to do just that. They were hard working, and were problem solvers! When the caterer forgot to send serving spoons with the buffet meal, Elizabeth disappeared for a few minutes and then voila! magically appeared with a half dozen serving spoons. There were several little bumps in the road that were barely noticeable because of their good help. Even down to not having enough greenery to add the the backs of the chairs - Lucy hopped on the golf cart and went foraging around the farm and brought back the perfect greenery solution. You just can't go wrong when you have a team like that making your special day happen!Sent on 10/06/2019

Everything I need and more!
Elizabeth and Lucy, the owners, are extremely accommodating and kind. If you want to feel like a bridal princess, they will make sure that happens from the first moment you visit. I've needed to meet their multiple times to take more pictures, show my florist, show my fiance, etc. and the wedding is still a few months away, but they have been helpful in showing me and my crew every single time. They have been prompt and basically make you feel like you're their number one priority. I know that is something that many other brides do not get to experience, so I'm very greatly. Oh and the venue itself is an absolute DREAM. The mountains in the background, the horses (adorably named Cornbread and Buttermilk) the pristine pond photo opp, and the clean, modern barn that seems to have been created from the barn wedding dreams I've had all my life. Looking inside the barn form the outside you can see the string lights all the way down, creating such a romantic atmosphere. One of my favorite parts of this venue is the many accessories and decorations they have and will let you use at no extra charge. SO many venues will charge you for every little sign, box, etc that you want to use. I can't wait to get married and party all night at this beautiful venue!Sent on 07/18/2019

Dream Wedding. Dream venue. Dream team.
I cannot sing the praises of Lucy and Elizabeth (and the whole family) enough!! They were there every step of the way making sure my wedding was everything I could dream of! They went above and beyond! McDowell Acres is the most beautiful place to get married and celebrate with your close friends and family! I wish words were sufficient to thank the whole family for sharing their farm with us and making the day so amazing. Not only did I get a husband on 9/21/19 but I also gained some pretty amazing friends from McDowell Acres! ❤🥰Sent on 10/06/2019

What an amazing experience at McDowall Acres! Weather forced us to find an indoor space for a wedding just a few days before the event. Elizabeth and Lucy could not have been any more helpful. A quick walk-through the day before the wedding and we had a plan! They were agreeable to all of our wishes and even had their own special touches that put the cherry on top! The barn looked wonderful and the views were stunning. As pretty and functional as the facility is, I cannot say enough good things about Elizabeth and Lucy and their families. They pitched in with wonderful attitudes and made sure everything was perfect! I have worked with many different venues and can say that this was by far the best experience. McDowall Acres truly wants each event to be special.Sent on 07/25/2019

My wedding was April 27th,2019 and Elizabeth and Lucy was just amazing they were very responsive on answering phone calls they tried to help in any way they could and the day of the wedding they helped with everything. Decorating and anything we needed. I can’t thank Mcdowall Acres enough for all the help. Mcdowall Acres is a beautiful venue I would recommend it to any couple getting married they view is gorgeous.

Fairytale Wedding Experience in Every Way
McDowall Acres is an extraordinarily beautiful venue run by an extraordinary family! I chose McDowall without ever seeing it in person, because I live over 7 hours away. The minute we turned onto the property, I knew that it was meant to be. I can’t adequately describe the beauty.Sent on 11/20/2018
The family immediately made us feel as if we had been friends for years. They were so welcoming and went above and beyond to provide us with an absolute fairytale. They were all a true Godsend.
Any bride looking for an unforgettable wedding experience in every way, should put this venue at the top of the list. I will never forget this beautiful place or the beautiful family behind it all!

From the time we pulled up to McDowall Acres we were in love with this place. It has breath taking views all over the property. The barn and property was extremely clean and organized. Lucy & Elizabeth are the most friendly people you have ever met. They make you feel like family right away. Anything you need at anytime they are there smiling and helping you out.. I have to say they made the whole experience stressless. I would totally recommend this venue. My daughter and her husband were thrilled with the venue, staff and ambiance.Sent on 12/28/2017

I held a huge birthday party for my husband at Mc Dowall Acres. When we arrived the place looked superb. The attention to detail was above and beyond my expectations. The owners were so welcoming to all our guests. It was a fantastic day and my friends who attended the party still stop and tell me what a lovely time they had. Thank you Mc Dowall Acres.Sent on 12/29/2017

When I was married on this property in May 2017, there had only been a couple of events prior to mine as they were just getting their start. The property is beautiful and makes for tons of amazing photo ops! The property owners were very kind and very accommodating. The price was CRAZY reasonable! I would imagine it will go up some as they continue to build up there venue and make further updates to the property, but I would also imagine that it will continue to be incredibly reasonable compared to the competition and for all that you will be getting. I highly recommend this venue if you love the outdoors, nature, and the country.Sent on 12/29/2017
