The Barn, originally built in the late 1800’s and located in Northern Michigan, has been lovingly restored by the Garvey family. The barn is 40 feet by 60 feet and can accommodate up to 150 people. Our new 36 x 40 foot cedar deck can accommodate an additional 80 people and can be tented. Of course, we have plenty of additional space for tent set up.

The pastoral setting nestled in a small valley makes this venue the perfect choice for your special occasion. We specialize in Barn Weddings, but can also accommodate your special event or private party as well.

We are located in Williamsburg, Michigan, close to Lake Michigan and 10 minutes from beautiful Downtown Traverse City. The facility maintains its original warmth and atmosphere . Its hand hewn beams tie the barn to its past while the beautiful dance floor quality flooring provides beauty and comfort as an entertainment facility. This Northern Michigan wedding venue is the perfect location for your wedding or special event. Your wedding will be extraordinary, unique, and unforgettable

We cannot begin to say enough great things about Bob Garvey and the Garvey Family Barn and property. It’s been 2 days since our daughter’s wedding and we are still basking in the glow of having selected the most beautiful setting for an autumn wedding in northern Michigan! The trees were at their peak and the flowers surrounding the barn were colorful and set the stage for many photo opportunities. Bob Garvey is extremely easy to work with – returning calls and e-mails promptly and answering all questions. His list of local vendors is very helpful. We used many of them and they were all laid back and casual and yet professional and helpful. It was obvious they are all very familiar with the venue and completely confident in their ability to provide the best services. Everything came together without a hitch. The barn and property are in pristine condition and the horses, roosters and newly added miniature donkeys, Fred and Ethel, are a delight! All of our guests, many of whom have never been to Michigan, raved about the beautiful venue and our daughter and son-in-law could not have had a more wonderful day! It was Pure Michigan perfection!

This venue is a dream. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. We got married outside next to the barn & our reception was in the barn. Guests couldn’t stop raving about the view from the deck. We were surrounded by acres of beauty, horses & gorgeous trees. The pictures are stunning. My husband and I walked the fields at sunset for photos and they were breathtaking. Bob Garvey, the owner is so kind and takes such good care of the property. I couldn’t have even dreamed of a more gorgeous wedding! We couldn’t be happier!!

The Garvey Family Wedding Barn has to be one of my all time favorite venues in Northern Michigan. I am a traveling florist and event stylist and we chose this little gem of a place for my daughters wedding. Set up and execution was flawless because they were so easy to work with. The property is absolutely pristine and the barn simply hugs you as you enter. It truly is an amazing place. The view is incredible and the rolling hills in the distance and lavender gardens are an added bonus. And then you have the horses in the pasture, wow… it makes for the perfect photo backdrop. You will not be disappointed if you are fortunate enough to call this your wedding venue. (I would give it 10 stars if there was a button to do so 🙂
