    Highest Recommendation!

    When we walked into Bates Barn we knew this was our spot. We didn’t look at another venue! The Barn is spectacular, needing minimal added decor. Having the option for 1 part outdoor (ceremony) and 1 part indoor (reception & dance) allowed for the best of both worlds! We couldn’t ask for better staff with the Bates, from Janice to Katie they all made sure that we were having the best experience on our day. 10/10 recommendation!

    Bates Barn's reply:

    Danny & Jen it was our pleasure to host your wedding at Bates Barn. Thank you for the review and we wish you nothing but lots of love and laughter in the years ahead. Janice & Katie

    Incredible

    We couldn't be more happy with our decision to have our wedding at Bates Barn.

    Not only is this venue stunning, Janice and all those at Bates Barn were absolutely wonderful to work with. They had recommendations for travel, lodgings, decor, etc that really made our planning easier. With all the unknowns around the pandemic too, we never once had to worry about our venue. Each round of rescheduling, they were unbelievably kind and understanding and always offered us guidance.

    We can't recommend this venue enough!

    Bates Barn's reply:

    Melanie and Aaron....we are so happy you were able to finally exchange vows after 5 or 6 date changes. The transition from ceremony to reception inside the venue because of weather was stunning. Thank you so much for your kind words, it was our pleasure to host you. May you be blessed with lots of love, laughter and new adventures as you journey into the next chapter.
    Janice & Heather (Bartender)
