Additional Information

Central to our facilities is the Wedding Barn Events Center, which was built in the 1890s and renovated in 2013. The barn includes an L-shaped 1,200 sq. ft. second-floor banquet hall, which can seat up to 86 (120 in meeting style). Two second-floor 9 x 6 windows offer a view of the 2.5 acre on the south side of the barn and the woods surrounding the pond. There also is a large deck outside the second-floor banquet hall that overlooks the pond. The first-floor banquet area is about 40 x 40 feet and can seat 64 (80 in meeting style). Also on the first floor are a 7 x 16 ft. bridal dressing room, 12 x 12 ft. women's restroom, 9 x 12 ft. men's restroom, and a 7 x 16 food preparation room. The barn's first floor still includes three original horse stalls and a tac room. A pathway leads from the south side of the barn to a pond dock that has become quite popular for outdoor ceremonies -- not to mention as an ideal venue for fishing. To the north of the barn is a large courtyard that is perfect for a variety of outdoor activities, including wedding ceremonies under the Wedding Tree at the west end of the courtyard. On the north side of the courtyard is our large pole barn, which is an ideal shady venue for picnics and BBQs. The outdoor arena on the north side of the pole barn is the ranch's guest parking lot. There are two entrances from the parking lot into the courtyard around the pole barn. To the north of the barn complex is the Indoor Arena, which is about 125 x 160 feet and has seating for more than 200 guests. Currently the arena is configured for go-kart racing but is available for trade shows, exhibition space, conferences, etc. The sky's the limit on activities and functions that can be stages on the ranch's acres and acres of grassland, plus the ranch has full Internet access, including WiFi.
