Our warm-air furnace and air-conditioning systems always keep the barn comfortable, even on a chilly fall evening or during a heatwave.
Beautiful, spacious, fully integrated, real restrooms inside the barn, with separate sections for the ladies and the guys.
Secure Backup Power

Two Beautifully Outfitted Bars
The carriage barn offers a stylish, well-equipped bar during the dance party, as does the pavilion at Spring Hill, during guest arrival and cocktail hour.
Inhouse Audio System
Four Behringer Eurolive speakers are installed in each corner of the dance floor. (Of course, deejays are welcome to bring in their own gear as well.)
All is beautifully lit: with color changes and vibrant hues inside the barn, and hundreds of warm glowing lights all around our property.
The venue fee does not include a (weather-dependent) large-size bonfire. Bonfires get lit the moment the bar closes, and the dance party wraps up. Bonfires at our place are large and spectacular and add the perfect end-of-night magic. Of course, the bonfire comes with a fully set up s’mores table. Setup, lighting, and monitoring of a large-size bonfire: $750
