Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • It’s a modern venue, with a nod to the area’s Appalachian heritage. Though the space features all the current essentials (state-of-the-art tech, customizable lighting), its style is thoroughly vintage, with stacked-stone supports, reclaimed wood, and antique farming décor accents.
  • Gorgeous photo opportunities are everywhere, from the award-winning gardens, to the rustic building materials, to the distant green mountain tops. The property is beautiful year-round, and is especially pretty at sunset.
  • Seasoned specialists will help you every step of the way. The staff at The Barn have experience orchestrating affairs of all sizes, (they even provide off-site catering at some of the area’s most popular events), so you know they’ll work to ensure you have a worry-free day.
