​​This rustic and beautiful 120-year old, solar powered barn is the perfect venue for anyone who wants everlasting memories on their special day.​ In addition to the Barn, several outdoor locations on the property make a stunning backdrop for your ceremony and photography.


The Barn is available for decorating and set-up on Friday before your event or by arrangement. You have use of the building and grounds on Saturday from 8am to Midnight. We ask that all clean up is completed by Noon on Sunday.

Events are $3,500.00 on Saturdays only. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. The balance is due one week before the day of the event. We will provide clean up of the venue on Sunday (removing and boxing food, decorations, linens, etc.) for an additional $500.00.
