We promote open door event here. There are 6 big barn doors that can open to circulate air at all times during warm weather months. The event reception space (over 3,000 square ft. with 29 ft. ceiling) does not feature heating and cooling system. But it is equipped with many fans and a heavy-duty Cool Boss (evaporative cooler) to keep everyone comfortable during the event. We have had many successful events held in late March through June and August through early December in the past. We offer 4 complimentary patio heaters for you to use when the weather is cold outside. We ask that you provide the propane tanks to operate the heaters (20 lb. tanks). They can be used indoors or outdoors in designated areas away from combustible materials. Extra heaters are available for rent if necessary.
All enclosed rooms (over 2,200 square feet - bridal suite, groom's quarter, kitchen, 2 public bathrooms, storage room and office) are cooled and heated for your maximum comfort.
We make all effort to accommodate rehearsals, but they are not guaranteed for the day before your event. Many clients will choose our deluxe package if they so wish to have both Friday and Saturday use of the barn and property. Please check out our new prestige package as well.
Yes, you must have a licensed caterer with proof of insurance to provide food for your event. Full-service caterer is required. Your caterer must provide experienced help to set up your food, refill, repack and clean up the kitchen afterward. Please consult with us if you have different ideas.

Our 24 acres property offers a beautiful lake and a dreamy barn that can be used as a backdrop for a perfect wedding. Couples may hold the ceremony with many options - down by lakeside on the lawn, or on our spacious concrete patio (33' x 72') beside the barn. In the event of rain, our barn is spacious enough to hold your ceremony indoors. Our team can help you design a second plan just in case.
Yes. We do. We do periodically update this list.
Alcohol is welcome here. In general, clients will provide own alcohol for guests to enjoy. All alcohol must be served by a ABC licensed bartender. Security coverage and liquor host liability insurance are also required. The process is easy and we can help you with that.

Animals, other than services dogs are NOT allowed inside the barn or near food. Dogs must be on leash and a designated person must be responsible for them other than the bride and the groom.
