So many options for your event

The Barnsite Retreat and Events Center has been the setting for sports teams end-of-season parties, family reunions, art gallery openings, weddings and more.  Parties, gatherings, ceremonies and receptions may be indoor or out as weather allows. The Great Willow, Apple Orchard or Lake Michigan Vista provide great backgrounds for outdoor weddings!  Indoor ceremonies can be held in the Great Room or the first floor Gallery, the deck off the Great Room - or any area of your choosing that fits your vision.

In addition to space rental options, we can help you with information on vendors for flowers, photography, catering, and other activity arrangements. Tables, chairs, linens, and other items for the events are arranged for by the renter and/or their caterer.  Click on the "Catering and Rentals" tab on the right of this page; and then open the "Area Vendors Document" at the bottom of that page for more information.  Access to all venues and the grounds (excludes the Residence) is from 8:00am to 11:30pm unless prior arrangements have been made.  You are responsible to do your own set up, or hire qualified services, with the understanding that all spaces used are to be left in the condition they were found.  A full list of guidelines will be provided. All catering and other vendor services are to be a contract between the renter and the caterer/vendor.
