Avoid this place. Would definitely not recommend.Sent on 11/17/2020
The Barn At Madison's reply:It is unfortunate that The Barn received 1-star rating for this situation. Your fiance told The Barn by phone you were cancelling your rental, and requesting a refund out of the monies paid thus far. The Barn offered a 1-day rental (vs the Full Wedding Weekend) to help reduce costs, but he said plans had changed, and you were looking at having your wedding in Jamaica instead. In an email to you that same day, The Barn offered to work with you, and that for any refund, you would need to cancel the contract, we could then remarket the dates, and try to rebook the dates. You chose not to move forward with that option, and posted a review of 1-star.

Unique venue with an awesome owner and staff
My wife and I are not your regular couple and wanted a venue that was unique and fit an October wedding. We were concerned about the size and the plan B in the event it rained. We invited 170 ppl and 130 showed so it was the perfect amount the fit everyone inside rather than putting tables on the balcony. We do suggest caterer serve family style as it worked out great for us. If you stay the weekend be sure to bring your own pillows and blankets. This was our only issue. It rained the day of the wedding but it was sprinkling and drizzle but as soon as my bride came out it stopped. The owner, Annie, and Stacy, the coordinator, assured me that they had weddings in worse rain. Over all it was the day we imagined and more. Annie was very good at responding and answering our questions. She helped prepare us and guide us through the process. Most definitely recommend.Sent on 11/04/2019
The Barn At Madison's reply:Thank you Pete! Your wedding and reception were a lot of fun, and so unique. Stacey and I enjoyed your day... and working with you both leading up to the big day... very much. And, yes, we have the pillows and blankets for the 3 Queen beds, and the couples can choose to invite up to 10 guests to enjoy with weekend stay with them, so bring those extra air mattresses, pillows and blankets so your closest people can enjoy with the weekend with you. For dinner, many couples choose the buffet from their caterer, but your caterer was equipped and offered Homestyle service, which was very smooth, and worked really well for your layout. I would like to see that more in the future.

We could not be happier with our experience with the Barn at Madison!
My husband and I just got married in June of 2020 at the Barn at Madison and we could not be happier with the venue and the staff! Annie and Brandon have been so helpful as we had to postpone our date due to Covid-19 and then adjust plans to meet all of the guidelines. We originally fell in love with the venue last September and our wedding experience exceeded my expectations! We had an elegant and formal dinner upstairs, a fun party in the pub downstairs, and enjoyed the outdoor garden space both during the cocktail hour and evening after dinner. There are many, many places for gorgeous pictures! And the upper level apartment would be a neat weekend rental even on it's own! I highly recommend :)Sent on 06/17/2020

Great Venue and Staff
The staff at The Barn at Madison was wonderful! Planning a wedding during COVID was not easy but Annie made sure everything went off without a hitch and was so accommodating!Sent on 11/02/2020
The Barn At Madison's reply:Cassie thank so much! It was a bumpy, roller coaster ride of planning within whatever guidelines were being thrown out there, but you were such a trooper, just going with the flow, and trusting we would help you to have a WONDERFUL day no matter what was going on in the world. I enjoyed you all so much. Your families were wonderful to work with, and Jerry came up with a MacGyver way to hang lights outside lol...Congratulations! and thank you for celebrating your new beginning at The Barn at Madison. P.s. we would LOVE to see me pics :)

Annie was absolutely wonderful the entire time. Despite all the covid restrictions, she made everything as easy as possible by being available to answer our questions and address our concerns on top of giving helpful advice. She assisted in helping us find a new vendor when ours didn't come through. Annie is a very nice woman who truly cares about what she does.Sent on 10/18/2020
The Barn At Madison's reply:Francesca I enjoyed our long conversations on the phone through all those crazy covid times :) Your family was so precious, and the special dance was great! Thank you for your kind words. It was nice to see you all again when you stopped back. Stay in touch and we'd love to see your pictures :)

Kaitlyn · Married on 05/23/2020
We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid and I was a stressed and worried mess. Annie was so wonderful every step of the way, and really made sure everything was handled so I didn't have to stress about it. She was always available whether by text or email and I always felt comfortable reaching out to her for help. She made us feel important and like our wedding really was important to her. From rewriting the floor plan a few times to finding us a new dj three days before the wedding, she helped with everything and I could not be more grateful. Annie was the coordinator the day of and my husband and I still talk about how smoothly everything ran. Brandon was there in the evening to make sure tear down ran smoothly and we had what we needed for the night. I can not say enough good things about Annie, Brandon, and the whole Barn at Madison staff. They truly added to our wedding experience in such an amazing way.Sent on 11/17/2020
You have the option to book this venue for the weekend and I think you'd be crazy not to. The suite is right upstairs in the venue so you are always on site. The suite was incredible and blew away my bridal party when they came to stay. It's equipped with a small kitchen with a coffee pot and mini fridge which was actually really nice to have. The space upstairs was perfect for getting ready, sleeping, and having a small afterparty. Plus, it was gorgeous for our getting ready pictures with lots of ornate spots to get some different shots.
Booking with the Barn at Madison was the best decision we made while wedding planning, and I would go back and do it all over again. Thank you so much to Annie and Brandon and your whole staff!
The Barn At Madison's reply:Kaitlyn, this brought a tear to my eye. You were wonderful to work with. I admire the fact that, in an extremely stressful time to plan a wedding, not once did you let that stress rule you. You and you're family are beautiful and I can't be happier that you chose The Barn at Madison to start your lives together. And I'm so so glad the DJ duo (DJ D-NO & DJ Lil Larry Joe) were able to come through for you on such short notice :)

Couldn’t have been better!
The Barn at Madison was exactly what I was looking for when we got engaged this past year. It is a beautiful, unique, rustic, eclectic venue. The owners Annie and Brandon are a delight to work with and being a COVID bride I had more stress and questions then I ever could have anticipated...they were their with us every step of the way. The 3rd floor apartment and weekend rental option is perfect for accommodating all the wedding needs. We were able to host or rehearsal and dinner onsite and had an amazing place to get ready (the unique design makes for awesome photos). I honestly couldn’t have dreamt of a more perfect venueSent on 08/27/2020

10/10 I reccomend!!
Annie and Stacey made our wedding day special in every single way. From day one they've been helpful with any and all questions we had, and are very thorough with every detail involved in wedding planning. My husband and I had no idea about any of the ins and outs of planning but we knew we should start with booking a venue and we are so thankful to have looked into the Barn at Madison. Once the barn is booked, Annie and Stacey lead you the rest of the way from things like the caterer, where to get ice, the DJ (I highly recomend TK the DJ), all the way down to the little things like the cookie room, flower girls, and your general time line of how things should be. We booked for the whole weekend, which I HIGHLY recommend doing. Pay the extra money, I promise it's worth it :) The barn is georgous and very minimal decorating and clean up is required. The barn staff will clean up for you! All we had to do the morning after was load up anything we wanted to take home (most of everything was left in a pile on the table by the stairs for us by the staff) and lock up. I hope one of my friends get married here just so I can be a guest again in such a beautiful place. It's called a barn, but it's nowhere near what a barn should be. No horses, no farm smell. The barn is so clean and absolutely stunning. :)Sent on 11/04/2019
The Barn At Madison's reply:Kayla and Dennis, you were a joy to work with, so positive and optimistic, just very enjoyable people. Your wedding day was beautiful, we have some pictures to share with you :) We've been communicating so much leading up to Saturday, it will be strange not to be texting with you! lol... Congratulations and thank you for your kind words!

The name Barn at Madison is very deceiving, this venue is not at all a barn. It is a one of a kind venue with unique features throughout all three floors and outside. Highly suggest couples to book for the entire weekend.Sent on 11/04/2019

Our Most Amazing Day
We got married in September of 2019, but we booked The Barn at Madison in 2017. We knew as soon as we saw the venue that it was the place for us! It was incredibly convenient to stay the whole weekend, as well as have friends and family stay with us. Stacey was a huge help to us throughout the process (Meeting with us and showing us around with vendors and such as well as day of help). The owners Annie and Brandon were super helpful as well and very understanding when one of our payments was late due to us forgetting (oops!) All-in-all The Barn at Madison is an eclectic and beautiful venue with just the right staff to help us pull off one of the best days of our lives! Thank you so much!Sent on 11/19/2019

I just celebrated my wedding at The Barn at Madison on September 15th and it was absolutely perfect! I can not say enough great things about the venue and staff! The venue is breathtaking and Annie was amazing. She helped with every little detail and gave me suggestions for all of my vendors. The venue was extremely affordable too! You can rent the venue for the entire weekend, which makes it like your own little getaway. Plus your friends can stay with you. We had our whole bridal party stay the entire weekend. On Friday, we had our rehearsal. Annie helped coordinate with my Pastor. Then my family made a taco bar for dinner. They set up everything for the rehearsal and your wedding. People were in love with the venue. It is so unique and different than the same old thing. Every room you go into has something new and exciting. My photographer was in heaven shooting at this location. I promise you will fall in love with this place once you visit.Sent on 10/09/2018
The Barn At Madison's reply:Julia thank you so much for the kind words. You were lovely to work with, and I am so glad you had such an amazing weekend here at The Barn at Madison !
Daisy · Married on 11/10/2018
Best decision we made!! Planning a wedding in less than 4 months was a breeze with the help of the Barn at Madison staff. They were quick to answer questions and made sure we were not forgetting any important details. Staying in 1 spot from the rehearsal dinner through Sunday was so convenient. I would highly recommend the full wedding weekend! We had to change the ceremony to indoors last minute and there was no issue. We had such a perfect weekend. Annie and Stacey are amazing!Sent on 12/04/2018

My wife fell in love with The Barn at Madison the very first time we went to see it. Annie and her husband Brandon as well as Stacey (who is Annie's right hand woman) were amazing to deal with from start to finish, from the first tour till the end of our wedding night we couldn't have been happier. Annie and her crew are easy to get a hold of, easy to talk to and more than helpful. They helped us with ideas that we would have never thought of on our own. They have plenty of experience with weddings at their venue and no task was too tough or no situation they couldn't handle. They make recommendations on what they know works (if you ask them) and they were spot on every time. Stacey was our primary contact throughout and she could not have been more amazing. She was personable and professional and handled everything asked of her and then some. Annie and Brandon are the owners and are equally as fantastic. They make sure your wedding day is perfect start to finish. The venue is beautiful and looked amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better day or 3 better people to plan it with. Amazing job through and through. Highly recommended.Sent on 12/17/2018
Stacey · Married on 09/22/2018
There isn’t enough time in the world to say how amazing The Barn at Madison was for our wedding venue choice! My husband and I chose the 3 day weekend package and we have no regrets at all! We love the outdoors and the rustic/ elegant aspect of the barn was perfect for us. The Barn at Madison was our very first and only wedding venue we looked at and we loved it so much we couldn’t wait to get a hold of Annie to book our special day. There is something so special about the Barn. We loved the history within the Barn and how there are a lot of original items and the original Cow Stalls in the basement. It holds a lot of memories in many peoples hearts. We told Annie to forever own the Barn and continue to take amazing care of it so we know nothing bad will ever happen to it! We would be devastated if anything happened. The one thing I liked the most was how you didn’t have to decorate much because how creative and unique the walls, ceilings and just everything was. You would need a whole week to look at every single item in that place and look at every exciting item from the old hayloft to the stained glass windows to the nicknacks in the bar area/ dance floor on the walls.
Even though the Barn is in a residential area, don’t let it deter you. Once you are on the barn grounds you honestly forget that you are even in a town. You feel as if you are in the country side and there is tons of privacy and the landscaping is so beautiful!
I couldn’t say enough about the staff either! Stacey, Annie and Jennie were absolutely fantastic! I held my day in their hands and they ran it smoothly and everything went perfectly and I knew I could trust them! They were amazing from their personalities to their friendliness. It was just as if they were a part of the family there to celebrate in our beautiful day! I have run out of characters to type :( I hope this review helps many beautiful soon to be brides choosing the Barn at Madison for their wedding day! You will not regret it!Sent on 09/15/2018

Book the full weekend stay, it will definetly make you less stressed out for the wedding, and it offers more time for you and your bridal party to prepare. Annie and her staff know what they are doing, and they offered great advice! This is an amazingly beautiful venue.Sent on 06/06/2018

Staci · Married on 05/26/2018
Our experience at the Barn at Madison was nothing short of amazing! Annie and Stacey were absolutely fantastic to work with, starting from our initial inquires and leading right up to the day of the wedding. Since we elected to go with the option of having the venue to ourselves for the whole weekend (best value you'll find anywhere by the way), all of the staff were extremely accommodating and flexible in allowing us to create our own memorable wedding. Although they can accommodate up to ~175 guests, this venue is setup perfectly for a "mid-sized" wedding, as we were right around 125 and nobody complained about being cramped. We got so much feedback from guests about how unique the barn was with all of the historic decorations, and then of course, this is all topped off by the fact that the third floor is living quarters so that a handful of guests/wedding party can stay over for multiple nights if need be.Sent on 07/04/2018
In short, if you're looking for a unique barn-style wedding with an equally amazing staff, look no further than the Barn at Madison!
Daniel · Married on 04/21/2018
For anyone considering a wedding venue, look no further. The Barn at Madison is simply a phenomenal place to get married. Annie, Brandon and Stacy provided us with an unforgettable weekend that was simply awesome. All of our guests could not get enough of the venue. One guest even thanked us for inviting them to the "Royal Wedding!" (referring to our wedding, even though the actual Royal Wedding was only a few weeks away). The convenience of having the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception all in one place was so nice and gave us so much extra time for photos.Sent on 04/26/2018
I couldn't possibly give a higher recommendation.

The Barn at Madison thinks of everything, big and small to help with our big day. Everyone is so helpful and personal. The day before and day of our wedding Stacy become like part of our family.Sent on 10/15/2017
We enjoyed staying the weekend to make things less stressful and it gave our kids a place to rest if they needed a break in all the hustle .
Every inch of the venue , inside and out, was breathtaking. Our guests gushed over this hidden gem and I'm sure will years from now.
I could not have imagined having our wedding anywhere but here. Grace, charm, simplicity, and elegance are just a few words to describe this place. Paul and I could not say thank you enough to everyone!!
You've made lasting memories on our family !!!

The Barn at Madison is not your typical barn venue (its not your typical venue at all to be honest). It is a unique place to host your special day. Annie and Brandon, the owners, take so much pride and put so much work into this beautiful venue, it is one for the books for sure. It is a 3 floor venue, with outdoor space to hold your ceremony. The main floor, the ballroom, is a beautiful room with stained glass everywhere and white walls and ceiling - allowing your wedding decor to POP. The bottom floor is the reception room - an all wood bar-like atmosphere, PERFECT for what we were looking for. There were decks, porches and and outdoor space, so our guests spread out and could find a place to enjoy the night. The top floor is the 3 bedroom apartment with the french quarters you can get ready in - and it is gorgeous.Sent on 10/25/2017
They have options to book for the full weekend or just for the day (but i recommend the full weekend - it was so nice to have time the day before to setup, time the next day to pack up, and even host the rehearsal dinner there). PLUS if you book the full weekend, you have access to a full 3 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor!!! This was KEY having my bridesmaids stay over the night before so we could all get a good night of sleep before the wedding day.
Annie was so helpful to us when planning. We had many conversations over the 2.5 year engagement and in the last month spoke to her so many times - she is so thoughtful and comes up with questions that brides often forget on their big day and makes sure you have them covered.
She was also there with her staff on the big day to see how things turned out. It was nice to see someone who cares so much about what they do and the places they own.
The Barn is BYOB which was a HUGE piece of what we were looking for and they provided all tables and white chiavari chairs (as well as all seating for the ceremony outside). They even provide snacks in the apartment, coffee, and an emergency box!! 2 thumbs up!

The Barn at Madison was an elegant, rustic, & exquisite venue that would be perfect for any couple's dream wedding. Brandon, Annie, & the rest of the staff were pleasant, extremely helpful, super flexible, & willing to make the Bride, Groom, & Bridal Party feel welcomed & keep the environment stress-free. I would definitely recommend this venue to any couple getting married & know that it will be a night that every guest will remember and be talking about for years to come.Sent on 09/19/2017
