The Great Good Barn is a farm wedding venue located in Mates Corner, New Brunswick. Nestled on two acres within the idyllic countryside, this historic barn dates to 1883. It offers couples a serene backdrop for their nuptials while remaining close to towns like Moncton, Sackville, and Amherst. The venue is ideal for soon-to-be newlyweds who wish to celebrate with their loved ones in a private, picturesque setting.

Facilities and Capacity

This barn has been carefully preserved to protect its historic quality. Its owners have lovingly restored the building while retaining many of the original features. The pegged post and beam barn reflects the 19th-century architectural style. With very few changes to the interior, the building exudes historic appeal. The venue boasts a main floor area and a mezzanine level where guests can view the festivities from above and photographers can capture unique images. Couples can personalize the warm wood interior with decor, lighting, and furniture to enhance the space. The venue provides tables and chairs to accommodate 99 guests. Additionally, there is an outdoor patio area where newlyweds and guests can mingle and enjoy the fresh air. It also serves as a memorable backdrop for summer ceremonies when the surrounding greenery is in full bloom. The property’s gardens and tranquil pond are beautiful spots for romantic photo opportunities. Beyond the gardens and patio, the expertly manicured field is available for guests to use for lawn games.

10 Year Anniversary Celebration

The Great Good Barn was the perfect venue for our anniversary celebration. The location. was beautiful, scenic and secluded. The property offered the perfect ratio of indoor to outdoor space and we were able to have games for our guests on the lawn and ample space for everyone to spread out. Inside the “barn” was simply magical. The stained glass and the warm wood, decorated with our wild flower theme turned out amazing. The space inside was able to accommodate our guitarist and with the tables moved aside we had a nice big dance floor.
In the evening the screened back deck was the perfect place to enjoy the view of our firework show finale.

Wedding day -25 June 2022

I got married at the great good barn in June. Katherine and Dieter were really nice and helpful. We prepared the barn the day before the wedding and we cleaned up on the day after. The barn is an amazing place inside and outside. We felt lucky to be able to get married in such a place. The ceremony outside with all the flowers was just amazing. And all guests told us that they loved the barn. There is an audio system , lights everywhere in the barn. The place is so romantic and beautiful. We could not dreamed of a better place to get married. They kindly offered me the get dressed with my 2 bridesmaids in a room a their place, In order not to cross way with my futur husband. I highly recommend.

Great Good Time

We had our wedding at the Great Good Barn and couldn’t have asked for a better location. It is a beautiful location inside and out which allowed us to have our wedding ceremony, dinner and reception all on the same premise. The ocean is close by so we had great opportunities for photos.

Our guests were happy and entertained and had nothing but great things to say about our day. We were able to decorate and rearrange the barn to our liking which allowed us a perfect layout for dinner and ample space for dance.

The owners, Kat and Dieter are very creative and thoughtful and were wonderful to work with. They really went above and beyond to make sure our day went well.

We recommend this location to anyone! Not just for weddings, but all kinds of events. This place has so much potential.

Katherine & Dieter Becker

We are Katherine & Dieter Becker, the owners of The Great Good Barn. After our retirement we decided to fulfill some dreams about our property by restoring a 140 year old barn and adding a Japanese inspired garden and tea house. Our vision included inviting family and friends to enjoy these spaces with us. Most of the work we did ourselves, but when needed these special people joined in the work and so it became a labour of love. We were encouraged to open the barn for others to enjoy and now we are offering it to you. We are here to help you realize the dream for your special event and will work with you to make it happen.
