What is the day-of-event insurance and where can I obtain it?

We do carry liability insurance; however, we require all clients to obtain day-of-event insurance to cover themselves and their guests in case of injury or excessive damage to the property. If you don’t know how to obtain this, contact us, and we can provide you with carrier information.

We recommend you contact Main Street Insurance (304-697-4664). Speak with Todd or Kelly and they know exactly what is required.

The barn itself has no steps to access the main floor. The restroom can have a ramp available upon request and it is equipped with 36 inch doors. However, the loft would be off limits.

Is there a rain backup plan?

Rain is always a possibility. It is your responsibility to make provisions for rain. It is not the responsibility of the venue. We can make recommendations for tent rentals which would be at the expense of the customer. The Barn is always an option to utilize, but all outside decor and rentals are the responsibility of the customer, unless previous provisions have been arranged with the venue.

Can the venue accommodate a DJ or a live band and what time must the music end?

All music must end by 9:00 p.m. during weekdays and 11:00 p.m. on weekends to comply with sound ordinances. We may be able to accommodate a live band, depending on the size of your wedding and the location for the live band. Please contact us about this.
