A Barn Built For Love, With Love


Barn at Allen Acres is an authentic, 1920’s-style dairy barn on a 3- ½ acre farm restored to serve as a romantic wedding venue that can comfortably host as many as 200 guests. Ideal for ceremonies and receptions, it has been lovingly refurbished from a period-style structure to accommodate beautiful celebrations of romance and loyalty.

Family owned, its architecture and design are throwbacks to a bygone era while it also oozes luxury, convenience, and modern furnishings. An eye-catching, alluring, and graceful venue, it benefits from the countryside setting, the ambience, and the secluded surroundings. From the outside, the barn catches the eye with its bucolic red aesthetic, while inside an intimate and cozy atmosphere awaits.

Ceremonies can be held on the lawn in the open air, ideal for those who would like to exchange vows beneath the sun. Alternatively, the barn offers ample space inside for nuptials in an alluring and covered function area. Here, chairs may be arranged either side of the aisle as guests mark the occasion with photos and videos. When the time comes for the grand reception, the barn offers a balcony and accompanying area that would be ideal for late-night revelries and merrymaking. For larger gatherings, owing to the three-plus acres available on site, there is more than enough room for tents to be set up. These can help to ensure that everyone is sheltered from the elements as they dine, drink, and dance the night away.

The 26-foot, vaulted ceiling has exposed beams that, along with original wood siding and original barn doors, make for a truly charming, rustic setting for your special day. Our barn also has a balcony with stairs leading down to a platform that is ideal for photographs, receptions, outdoor ceremonies, or any other wedding needs.

The newly built pavilion is 24×80 and can accommodate 220 guests including tables and chairs. It’s the perfect outdoor space for your reception.

Guest house
The main house, also called the Guest House, provides a place for the wedding party to get ready. There are four bedrooms, a living and dining room, and a kitchen available for the party. One of the bedrooms offers beautiful light while the bride and her attendants get dressed. Unlike a single weekend day rental, the Guest House may be used for overnight stays for a weekend rental as part of your event.

Relax and enjoy your wedding weekend event by staying in the 1920’s farmhouse that is included with your wedding booking at The Barn at Allen Acres!
