The Inn at the Round Barn Farm will hold only one reception at a time, guaranteeing you our complete time and attention. We may host more than one reception on a weekend, but never two on the premises on the same day.
The average reception is six hours long. Most summer receptions begin anywhere between 2:00pm and 3:30pm. Amplified music ends by 9:30 pm but the party can continue with acoustic music or even a gathering around a bonfire. Winter receptions usually start later as amplified music is permitted until 11:00pm if the couple have reserved all of the Inn rooms.
In addition to the our Event Sales Coordinator, we employ a full time event coordinating team who will be available to you throughout the planning stages, ceremony and reception. Until the moment you depart, there will always be someone to assist you.
Yes, the Inn at the Round Barn Farm has a full staff that can handle any and all your needs. We have assisted more than a thousand couples down the aisle in the past 28 years and have an incredible ability to overcome challenges.
For plated meals, we find that two servers can properly serve 4 tables. In addition to servers, our team appropriately includes bus staff, bartenders and a floor captain for each event.
To assist you, our facility has numerous seating plan scenarios available for you to use. A blueprint is available to assist you as well. Your event coordinator and you will finalize your seating plan before the start of your celebration so the dining room can be ready when you arrive for your hand-off meeting.
