Nestled in the heart of the Kawarthas in Bethany, Ontario, Iron Horse Ranch invites you to host your wedding in its gorgeous, rustic venue. Set among the rolling hills, the property includes unique features, including a barn built of repurposed materials, a covered bridge and a two-acre pond.

Facilities and Capacity

Iron Horse Ranch includes multiple ceremony and cocktail hour spaces, including inclement weather options. The venue also provides brand new bathrooms, a kitchen prep space for caterers, and is entirely wheelchair accessible. The ceremony space inside the restored barn is rustic and romantic, perfect for cool or rainy weather. Couples can also host an intimate get-together on the covered bridge to celebrate in the open air. The corral provides a very popular space to say your "I dos" with a backdrop of the pond or charming barn. This stunning setting can host up to 200 guests, and no matter where you host your festivities, you'll have picturesque views of the lush countryside.

Services Offered

One thing that sets Iron Horse Ranch apart from others is its "Exclusive Weekends," meaning you get exclusive access to the venue for an entire weekend. The team only hosts one event per weekend, giving you access to the property from Friday morning to Sunday afternoon. The wedding package includes the use of the venue, the benches for your ceremony, and the harvest tables and chairs for your reception. Couples can also receive a list of recommended suppliers for the best service for their special day.

The perfect barn venue

Iron Horse Ranch was a perfect venue for our wedding! The property and barn are absolutely stunning, and the staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. Chelsea was great at suggesting vendors and greeting them as they arrived on our wedding day.

My fiancé and I were able to create a completely tailored wedding by selecting our own vendors, from catering to flowers to a cigar roller (which was a huge hit)! I also appreciated that we were able to use the venue for the entire weekend, which allowed us to host a rehearsal on the Friday, wedding on the Saturday, and collect our items on the Sunday without being rushed.

While there aren't any lodging options close to the barn, we booked a hotel block in Peterborough (20 minute drive) and a shuttle to transport guests to and from the venue. There are also some AirBnB options that some of our guests booked. I would definitely recommend Iron Horse Ranch to anyone looking for a barn venue!
