The first floor consists of two separate rooms and a preparation kitchen. These rooms make up our main level and can be rented individually or together dependent on the size of your event. You can work with our operations manager to find a table layout that works best for you and your guests. With both spaces included we can hold comfortably 175 people.
Main Dining Room
Our main dining room is perfect for a sit down reception, casual cocktail hour or festive retirement party. It features a custom built bar on one end with two tappers and wine fridges below. On the opposite end is a sliding barn wood door that separates Lower Dining Room from the Main. A ceiling made of wood from the original barn compliments stunning wood columns, adding to The Barn's rustic charm. Natural light flows in through the many windows. Your caterer is able to utilize our preparation kitchen to the right of our bar.
We have supplied your selected caterer with a preparation kitchen right next to our bar. They have use of two commercial refrigerators and four warmers. They also have four large stainless steel countertops as well as sinks with a garbage disposal. The kitchen also has a separate door to outside for easy access to their catering vehicle.

Weather permitting, you and your guests can take in the fresh air, watch the sunset, or chat beneath our patio lights. We have plenty of seating and a view of our large grass area.
As you walk up our beautiful stairwell up to the second floor you will enter our Event Hall. It is about 2,200 square feet.
