Capacity and Configuration

Rustic Manor is able to accommodate 300 people in the barn between its lower-level and upper-level “hayloft.” This allows for multiple different configuration options.

Situated on just under 12 acres, the property also has extensive outdoor space that is perfect for a beautiful outdoor ceremony, lawn games, drinks on the patio, and overall exploring along trails on the property. There are so many amazing photo spots you’ll just have to see them all for yourself (start by checking out our video and photo gallery).

Brand New, Rustic and Beautiful

The Rustic Manor Barn was built with beautiful wood walls, floors and high ceilings. The spacious loft area provides an additional spot to style and gives a great aerial view of the main floor.

And no barn would be complete without sliding barn doors, and Rustic Manor has two!

An added bonus of having your wedding at Rustic Manor is access to the homestead on the property. Owners Whitney and Eric live on the property, but have dedicated a private portion of this historic home for couples to spend the night after their big day. Eric, a trained chef, can even whip up some breakfast for you, leaving it at your door to enjoy privately at your leisure.
