Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A traditional working Midwestern farm dating to the late 1800s, this pretty property is owned and operated by a third generation of stewards, who have taken great care in ensuring that its treasured history has been preserved, while adding all the modern elements required for superb celebrations.
  • The two-story, whitewashed gambrel barn is a true beauty, with its towering ceiling, open loft area overlooking the main floor, and countless historic elements throughout. An attached patio allows the party to flow outdoors, so that guests may enjoy the pastoral scenery and brilliant sunset.
  • Your three-day package includes use of the barn, grounds, and farmhouse, which offers overnight accommodations in its three comfortable bedrooms. You’ll also have access to their cute photo props, including a 1934 Chevrolet truck and a vintage John Deere tractor.
