The “little sister” of the Grand Barn, the Tobacco Barn can certainly hold its own when it comes to beauty and craftsmanship. Recently restored, this gem offers a bridal couple a unique venue for their ceremony or the perfect back up plan in case of inclement weather. Boasting gorgeous white beams accented with the original antique hardware and the most incredible floor and stage area you could imagine. Just as they did for drying the tobacco that hung from the rafters, large hinged panels and small louvers prop open and make this a unique showpiece that just cannot be found elsewhere.
As the only truly historically preserved barn in the tri-state area, the Grand Barn is a gem. Built in 1820 with rafters reaching 35 feet high and over 3600 square feet of floor space it is the perfect melding of rustic elements and elegant accents. The ivory ceiling draping falls in soft romantic billow as it hangs from rafters high above. The sparkle of chandelier lighting adds the perfect touch.
The gardens, at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens, feature a delightful blend of colors, fragrances, textures and sounds. Immerse yourself in the romantic hues of floral blooms and the lushness of textured greenery. The Wedding Garden borders the Homestead’s historic Tobacco Barn and provides a very private, spacious area for a picturesque outdoor ceremony. The Meadow Garden has an organic, rustic feel, and borders the back of the Grand Barn.
Our beautiful outdoor lounge has the perfect blend of industrial chic elements to draw guests in for a relaxing hang out space. Gorgeous concrete, wood and metal decor coupled with super comfy furniture allows guests to mingle and chat during cocktail hour or throughout the reception without missing any of the action happening in the main venue.
Our Courtyard area is in the center of all the action so lawn games can be enjoyed throughout the day and guests can relax by the wood burning fire in the evening. This is the perfect spot to enjoy our vintage camper photo booth and a fun food truck. The sparkle of string lights fills the entire area with an ambiance that mingles perfectly with the music flowing from the open doors of the barn creating a wonderful experience for you and your guests.
