    Wedding reception

    My husband and I held our reception here, the loft comfortably seated our 80 guests, along with our DJ. The food was incredible, the serving staff were friendly and helpful, and the event coordinator went above and beyond to ensure our night was everything we had hoped it would be. If I had to do it all over again I would not change a thing! Thank you to Chris and the staff at The Farmhouse for an incredible evening!

    The best decision!

    Sarah and Chris made our day so easy and special! They went out of their way to be accommodating and available for questions and modifications. The location was perfect for what we wanted: an intimate, fun, social evening for our loved ones. Their food is phenomenal and their service is unmatched. Love love love!!

    Charming, terrific venue!

    We had a great experience working with Chris at The Farmhouse. Everything ran so smoothly, the space was perfect, the service and food were great (especially the appetizers!) - we couldn't have asked for a better day. My partner and I met with Chris multiple times before the big day, and he put us at ease with his enthusiasm and attentiveness. The location across from the water is charming, and there's lots of parking. I would highly recommend this as the perfect rustic, intimate (we had 59 guests) wedding venue.

    Beyond Expectation

    I cannot begin to express how exceptional the staff, service, food and whole experience was. Chris and his team went above and beyond to personally help us navigate a difficult situation. Beyond Grateful!

    Excellent food and rustic feel

    I would recommend the farmhouse if you are looking for a more laid back comfortable feel for a smaller size wedding. We rented the semi private room, it seats 25 but I think it was a little tight I'd say 20 would be more comfortable and perfect. They provide some of the linen and can does and they also can hook your playlist to the sound system so you can play your own music which I found very useful. The staff are very accommodating and the if you contact them about inquiry of a wedding they are very responsive and they will also book meetings to help plan and get the wedding you want. We enjoyed the food it was very delicious, they also have a vegetarian option I believe it was couliflower steak. I never did ant taste testing prior but I didn't have to the food was cooked perfect. The wedding does end at ten when the restaurant closes, kind of early but there isn't a dance floor so no need to be there until 12. We had a good time I would recommend them

    The Farmhouse's reply:

    Thanks for the great review Miranda! Small note though, we will stay open for larger weddings 50+ and we can make a dance floor on the second floor for larger weddings as well!
