Is there somewhere private for us to ready ourselves for our big day? What time can we get there?
Will we be able to get there early to decorate? Who does the decorating and clean up?
The Loft is a D.I.Y ("Do it Yourself") venue. We give you the palette for you to design and decorate to your liking. Your team can arrive as early as 10:00 a.m. the day of your event to decorate. As with all D.I.Y, the expectation is that you/your team also must remove all decorations/furnishings at the completion of your event. Should you not wish to clean up at the end of the eve, consider hiring people to assist!
How big is the space?

Are you ADA compliant?

Is there outdoor space?
The barn is poised on several acres and offers you many options for your special day. Perhaps a tented outdoor cocktail reception prior to an indoor dinner or maybe an outdoor ceremony! There are many possibilities and we look forward to sharing them with you upon your visit.
Are there any reviews of the facility?
Reviews are available on tripadvisor.com, Weddingbee, Weddingwire, The Knot & Pinterest. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram or just google "Jacks Barn photos or reviews"...plenty is out there!
Where can I stay? Lodging for my guests?
On our home page there is also a tab for our private inn, Twenty Belvidere, located a mile from The Loft, which can offer many options; accommodations for you and your party including but not limited to a private rehearsal dinner, a brunch, or just a place to ready yourselves. The Inn sleeps 14 comfortably. The Inn's location is private and offers itself to great photo opportunities! Of note, we do not permit after parties at the Inn. Several well known chain hotels are within a short drive of the Barn and we can certainly assist with recommendations.
Will there be other events at the Barn the day of my event?
No! We only cater to one event at each venue per day. We believe strongly in giving our undivided personal attention to you and your event.
