Nestled into the landscaped grounds, the Red Barn exudes rustic elegance. Features include heating and air-conditioning, wood-burning fireplaces, a built-in bar, elevator and restrooms. The lounge, located on the lower level, features leather seating, a double bar, men’s and women’s restrooms, fireplace and an outdoor patio.

The upper level loft features beautiful high ceilings with a gabled roof and large open area for dancing. This space also serves as your alternative ceremony location in inclement weather.
- The Tent Pavilion: Every Spring we raise our gorgeous, white peak pole Tent Pavilion, adding an immediate sense of grandeur to the property. Nestled into our grounds, the tent features parquet flooring, ambient lighting, and optional windowed sides for an al fresco feel for your reception dinner and toasts.
