What is the parking situation?
We park most of the cars along the dirt driveway leading into the barn on both sides of the road. We can hold up to 80 cars. There is always a short to long distance walk involved with parking. Handicapped parking is available, we encourage drop offs at the barn for anyone not interested in walking. When we anticipate more than 150 guests, a plan for overflow parking must be created. There are several potential options to choose from. There is a large grassy field. When it is dry, we can park up to 30 cars in this field. Unfortunately, this option is not available when it is wet and therefore, an alternate plan must be created ahead of time. There are a few companies offering shuttle van services. Encouraging your guests to carpool is strongly encouraged regardless of the size of the event.
Is smoking allowed in the barn?
No, a smoking area will be set up outside of the Barn for the enjoyment of those guests. The smoking area will be equipped with receptacles for cigarette trash. Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside of the Barn.
