Q&As

How many guests/ max capacity?
Clover Barn is designed to hold 300 guests inside, that includes wedding party. However, weather permitting, you can host additional guests outside.

Is there a smoking area?
Due to our wooden structure, the cleanliness of our property, and the enjoyment of all guests,  no smoking or vaping is permitted inside or outside.

(Except the gravel parking area only) Please share this with your guests that this might affect.

What is the difference in an event and a wedding?
A wedding can be a wedding and/or reception, and usually requires a lot of different vendors and planning on all parties involved. 
An event could be an open house, grad party, shower, birthday, anniversary, family gathering, club meeting, holiday,

or any other smaller type gathering. These are to be booked no more than 3 months ahead for weekend dates.

What are my contract hours?
Full-day Saturday rentals are from 9am- 12 midnight. If you need additional time to decorate, etc, please contact us.

We encourage you to rent Friday night (4-9pm) for set-up and rehearsal for an additional $500.

If you rent for the full weekend, the hours are noon-midnight on Friday, 9am-midnight on Saturday, and 9am-noon on Sunday.
Half day EVENT rentals are for 5 hours and would prefer you choose morning (9am-2pm) or evening (4pm-9pm)  

Can we bring our own food?
Yes. Keep in mind that you will then need to provide dishes, silverware, napkins, servers, and all the cleanup of tables and kitchen.

We do not have staff for this, and is your responsibility. We encourage you to hire a licensed insured caterer to handle all of this.


What about alcohol?

We have an exclusive bar service, please see our price list for details.
