The Barn on New River sits on 100 beautiful acres, boarded by the Southfork New River, and surrounded by our beloved Blue Ridge Mountains.
The Barn itself has an elegance that will memorize you when you first walk in. Your eyes are immediately drawn to the soaring 30’ ceilings and the beautiful Swarovski crystal chandeliers, to the string lighting, and fabulous acid stained concrete floors, this place is one of a kind. The Barn is 4900 sq. ft. of pure elegance. The Brides Room is bright and beautiful with antique chairs, and sofa, a 12’ mirror for getting ready, a mimosa bar, and plenty of outlets. The Grooms Room has a bar, and comfortable seating for them to relax and enjoy. Our Sonos sound system is top of the line. The kitchen is loved by all our vendors, and the bathrooms have plenty of room with granite countertops. The Barn has a built-in bar that services both the outdoor stone cocktail area, and the inside of the Barn. The large cocktail area is the perfect location to enjoy the expansive views of the farm. Just beyond the cocktail area is the ceremony site, and pond with a stunning fountain. You really can have it all at our Venue.
