Barn on the Hill

The idea of our newest addition, Schafer Barn on the Hill, was prompted by visiting engaged couples that absolutely fell in love with the Century Barn, but needed a more spacious venue to accommodate more guests.  We remodeled an existing barn on another property we owned just about 7 miles from the original Century Barn, adding large bathrooms, a commercial kitchen, rooms for the wedding party to get ready, and even it’s own bar.  Then slowly and painstakingly my husband and his team added a vast 60’ X 100’ ceremony space, made of full tree-sized logs and beams, along with artistically designed metal fasteners engineered by our talented local welding shop.  It is truly a sight to see!

The Bridal Suite and Schafer Lodge are both close by, and help make the Barn on the Hill a truly unique wedding “campus.” These options are offered first to the wedding couple getting married at the Schafer Barn on the Hill. If these accommodations are not needed, they will then be offered to the couple getting married that weekend at the Schafer Century Barn. We also have several other lodging options within minutes of the Barn on the Hill if your wedding family and friends need more space. (Look under the “Where to Stay” tab for details.)
