  • I would highly recommend The Barn Event Center. My son and his wife had their wedding and reception at The Barn. I can't save enough good things about the food, the chefs, the staff, the coordinators. I am usually highly critical and can always find something that didn't go quite right. In the case of our son's wedding, I am unable to find a single thing that could be considered a negative. Everything about their day was absolutely perfect! There was nothing to worry about because The Barn's staff was taking care of everything!

  • Start early and talk to Andrea at the Barn. She has wonderful ideas, pictures and can give you the best of her experiences. Make lists and keep communicating with the Barn. They know what works best with your ideas and they can share that knowledge with you. Be assured that all the staff at the Barn are helpful and friendly and very professional. Our son's wedding could not have been better. Plus, their food is wonderful!

  • The Barn Event Center of the Smokies is THE BEST place ever for your dream wedding! Everyone is so kind, helpful, caring, and nice. They truly went out of there way to make sure we were all taken care of. We rented the venue for the ceremony and reception. We had them cater our food and do our flowers. The venue is BEAUTIFUL inside and out. The food was AMAZING and our flowers turned out BEAUTIFUL. We also had Marilyn and Lisa to coordinate and just to get everything done and together. They are AMAZING. Anything they could do to make it less stressful on us, they wanted to do it. The day of our wedding was so easy because everyone there was doing there part in whatever needed to be done for our day. They made it simple and so easy for us to enjoy our day as every bride and groom should do. The whole crew is simply AMAZING and we are so thankful we shared our day with The Barn Event Center of the Smokies! :)

  • I was very pleased with the staff and location of this venue. They made sure that the wedding party and family had everything they needed. It was so much better than I could have ever expected! Marilyn was a huge help when it came to decorating and getting me and my bridesmaids down the aisle at the right time. I could not have pictured things going any smoother and simpler than they did. The staff helped relieve any stress and were so kind. I had someone asking me almost every 10 minutes if they could get me anything or if I needed them to do anything. The Barn also provided the catering and the food was delicious! It was the best barbecue and mac-n-cheese I have had in a long time! I also had many friends and family saying how great the food was. I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for Andrea and Marilyn and how easy and wonderful they made our big day! I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone wanting a rustic/barn theme for their wedding.

  • The Barn exceeded all my expectations! I cannot say enough good things about the location and staff. Since we are from out of town, we truly did not know what to expect. The staff made everything run smoothly. They had everything set up beautifully and made it easy on this Mother of the Bride. Andrea did an excellent job on our flowers. We were looking for the "WOW" factor and she more than delivered. The flowers were gorgeous. We all know wedding food is usually just okay, but the food at the rehearsal dinner was exceptional. Our guests complimented the food over and over. It is a beautiful venue in itself, but the extra details the Barn Staff added made everything wonderful and helped us enjoy this special time. As I look back on my daughter's special day, it couldn't have turned out nicer or run any smoother than it did. I give the credit to the Barn Event staff. They were so professtional in everyway. If you are looking for that special place to have a wedding or a rehe... Read more

  • Such a wonderful and gorgeous place! I couldn't have been more impressed with the staff, the food, the flowers and the decorations. They did everything and it was first class. When I asked for something, they went above and beyond what was asked of them. So pleased!

  • Many of our guests were very complimentary of the decor, the friendliness of the staff, the quality of the food....this venue provided us with everything we could ask for and more. They truly exceeded our expectations! There are so many beautifully restored antique carriages, a beautiful natural looking waterfall, and the carefully crafted wood interior gave such a warm glow to all of our pictures. I would recommend this venue with absolutely no hesitation to anyone looking for a charming place to set off one of the most momentous occasions of your lives.

  • We had our wedding reception at the Barn Event Center in Townsend. We looked at several venues and from the start we were impressed with the Barn. Warning, not your typical BARN. It is very classy and beautifully decorated, perfect for our wedding reception. We had around 70 people at the reception and plenty of room for a dance floor. The food was great, the staff was very professional right down to the Maître De who greeted everyone with his top hat, coat, and tails. The big thing we loved about the Barn was it was one stop shopping, They handled the venue, decorating and setup, their own chef and kitchen on site, servers, flowers, parking.... everything related to the reception. They even gave us an invaluable list of their preferred vendors for everything from DJs, to bartenders, to limos, to photographers.

  • This venue is BEAUTIFUL!! Andrea & her staff were very pleasant to work with and also flexible with requests. From the menu to the flowers to the food, it was amazing. More than a few guests told me how much they enjoyed the food. My new husband and I were even given food & cake to take home! Loved that part :) I highly recommend this venue for ceremony and/or reception.

  • The venue was absolutely beautiful! Little decorations were needed because the Barn had so many of its own already set up and lots of lights.The staff was so friendly and helpful from the time we first inquired to the staff that worked our event. It was very low maintenance and stress free the day of the wedding. The staff took care of setting up all of the center pieces and decorations that we brought. The food was delicious, way better then your average wedding food. I highly recommend this venue for your wedding. It was beautiful and easy to get to even in the middle of snowy winter.

  • This venue is gorgeous and is perfect for a wedding. The catering they have tasted amazing. My only problem on my wedding day was the new owner, that was not the owner when I booked the event. On my wedding day she booked a tour of the facility, which is very wrong because I paid for every area of the facility for the entire day. Not only were there complete strangers walking around while we were rehearsing and setting up, but the owner asked a family member of mine to move some of our decorations for the ceremony because she was showing the venue. We were setting up for my ceremony that was in three hours when she said that. The owner also asked when me and my bridal party would be done in the cades cove room (area where bride and bridesmaids get ready) so that she could show the people that were touring the room, and apologized for the tour people being three hours late. Though she still allowed them to come and to me that is bad business. I am sure that the people touring wer... Read more

    Hello Haley, We understand the day of a bride's wedding is a very stressful day and we deeply apologize for any added stress that was placed on you the day of your wedding. To Clarify, the present owner is the owner that created the business 10 years ago. It has always been our policy not to schedule appointments during any event. However we cannot prevent people from stopping in without an appointment. In this case, the couple who stopped by were from out of state. We felt it would be in the best interest of both parties to ask if it was ok to show the building. When the response was no, we did not show the building. As to the Strangers in the building, the only other people that were in the building were the vendors you hired and their helpers.
