The Guernsey Barn

The Guernsey Barn contains much of the original woodwork (from the 1880s) as well as a climate controlled deck off the back with panoramic views of Emma Lake.

On the main floor, there’s a stage for your head tables, plenty of room for a dance floor, and a gorgeous antique bronze chandelier, as well as charming bistro string lights, and vintage french doors providing lots of natural light. What used to be a hayloft is now set up for guest seating, overlooking the dance floor.  A large room downstairs can seat up to 215 guests if your ceremony gets rained out. And the old milk house has been converted into a catering prep kitchen complete with commercial fridge, a microwave, and sink.

We can seat up to 300 inside the barn, but keeping your guest list below 250 will give your loved ones a bit more elbow room.

We do have heat and air conditioning… something you won’t find at many rustic barn venues! However, you should let your guests know if you’re planning on a ceremony outdoors so they can dress accordingly. You may also suggest they bring a pair of boots or flats for dancing!

The barn is handicap accessible via the concrete ramp on the front of the barn.
