As the name would suggest, the Farmhouse was built in 1868 and is one of the oldest farmhouses in Boone County. It became our family's home in 2000 and over the past twenty years, we've fallen in love with the house, its historic charm and picturesque country landscape on which it sits. As we were planning a wedding of our own, we realized it was the perfect location for a celebration and are confident others will love it just as much as we do. 

Located just three miles north of Boone, Iowa, the 1868 Farmhouse has been fully restored features two getting ready suites, brick courtyard, wrap around porch and three outdoor wedding ceremony spaces. New in 2020, the property features a completely renovated, modern wedding reception hall just steps away from the main house with seating for up to 300. And because we know the weather in Iowa is all sorts o' crazy,  the wedding venue is climate-controlled, meaning you and your guests can dance the night away no matter how hot or cold it is outside. 

In the fall of 2020 we completed our massive, but oh-so-exciting renovations including a wedding reception hall, bridal and groom getting ready suites, overnight accommodations and more!

Feel free to take a look around, send us a message or follow us on social media for venue updates. 

We may be biased, but we think it's going to be the absolute perfect space for your perfect day. 

Let us introduce ourselves.

This is one of the most thoughtfully designed wedding venues. The staff is very easy to work with and clearly cares about brides & grooms having a memorable experience. The bridal suite especially is perfect for large parties to get ready, comfortable, and has everything you could need. Be sure to snag a picture or two near the farmhouse at sunset!
