Family Gatherings

Family Gatherings at the Rustic Barn


Family is what SylvanDale is about. The barn was resurrected by family, love, and sweat and serves as a gathering place for families. The barn is a great space for family gatherings & reunions, anniversaries, birthday parties, bridal and baby showers, retirement and graduation parties. There are spaces for every family member; grandparents can enjoy the shade on the courtyard and kids can run and play in the field.

Family Gatherings

The barn, milkhouse and courtyard can accommodate up to 200 people.

There is additional space if a separate dining tent is desired and there is ample onsite parking in the field. The barn rental includes antique tables and chairs for 100 guests and additional chairs and tables may be rented. The barn and surrounding areas are decorated with antiques and additional decorations may be added.

There is outdoor furniture, fire pit, and firewood provided!
