  • The venue is absolutely beautiful. Our wedding was over a year ago and we still get comments and compliments about how amazing the Stonebarn was. Make sure you visit and get the whole tour and, if it's the look you are going for, you won't be disappointed.

  • I was another October bride. I was not as fortunate with the weather. It was in the 50s, but that is still chilly, especially at night. I happily paid the $175 for the heat, as I contacted the same place they rented the heaters from and it would have been over $400 for me to rent the same heater, as they only rent them in two week minimums. There were a couple of small communication issues leading up to the wedding, which can be stressful, but they worked out. They were onsite the day of decorating and rehearsal making sure everything was working, cleaning a few last minute things, putting chair pads on, etc. Shelly (owner) actually helped me through a minor hickup with a different vendor the day before, which she did not have to do! (Our dishes arrived with food residue on them and she was right there to hook me up with hot water, a tub, dish soap and cloths!) They have a room full of random things you can rent that fit in with their theme that help if you need last mi... Read more

  • Amazing, unique site. This place went from virtually unknown when I booked it and within less than 2 years, they're now fully booked! As of now, you rent only the space at the barn, meaning a lot of leg work to get rentals, food and all your other vendors in but the end result is well worth it! They have lots of plans for improvements including bathrooms and an elevator to the top floor. Book early!

  • The Mayowood Stone Barn is an amazing wedding venue with a lot to offer. It is absolutely gorgeous and our guests were an awe the entire day with just how beautiful everything was. In my year long contract with the venue, the property had changed managers a few times and it was sometimes very difficult to get a response out of anyone if you had questions. Shelly and Homer Tompkins, the owners, were absolutely wonderful and were there the day of the event. They helped move things around and set things up and made the whole day go so smoothly.

  • I recently got married at the barn -- the experience was wonderful! Everyone was friendly and the place was perfect! I also used the owner's daughter for day of wedding coordination - she was super knowledgeable on the property and used all of the additional rentals to make it perfect! The heating is now included in the cost and the bathrooms have been updated wonderfully! It is a bit of a drive from the cities and a little spendy, but totally worth it! I have had several people say it was the most amazing wedding they have ever been to.

  • I can't imagine our daughter, Jacque, and son-in-law, Kevin, getting married anywhere else! The entire experience, from booking the barn to their actual wedding day, was a positive one. I am so thankful for the passion, energy, time and money that Shelly and Homer Tompkins have put into the Mayowood Stone Barn to literally make dreams come true. It is a magical place - whimsical, romantic, historic.... We had 325 guests, with Chef Pasquale Preser from the Kahler Hotel providing the most delicious food all afternoon and evening that I've ever experienced at an event. With Jacque and Kevin wanting a elegant, yet casual feel to the day, we wanted our guests to feel as if they were at an all day and evening cocktail party where they could wander the grounds, have a drink in the Blacksmith Shop, play some bags, ride on a cart pulled by a miniature pony, sit under a tent listening to the Michael Patrick Jazz Quartet, sit by a fire...many of our guests mentioned that they felt very special a...

  • I chose this venue for my son's Minnesota reception after they were married out of state a few weeks prior to their reception. We all absolutely loved it and had a wonderful time. We had so many compliments from our guest. The owners were available the whole night, and were so gracious. They were hands on and a delight to work with. We used one of their recommendations for our caterer (Canadian Honkers). We had an awesome dinner and I would hire them again for sure. They had wonderful service and exceeded our expectations in every way all the up to our D.J. who was attending to our beverage table while the guest were arriving. What an enchanting evening filled with lots of laughter and love! Perfect!

  • My husband and I got married at the Mayowood Stone Barn in July of 2013. We could not have asked for a better, more magical or beautiful place to tie the knot! Most of our friends and family were from the Twin Cities and we were concerned at first about asking them all to drive to Rochester. In the end - all were raving about our venue and what a good time they had there. It was totally worth the drive!! Shelly and Homer are the sweetest, most genuine and helpful couple and we loved working with them. They've had to jump through hoops placed on the barn by the Rochester City Council, and have handled all of the changes gracefully. My husband and I wanted a memorable, unique wedding that was classy and comfortable, in a barn with character. We got all of that and more, and wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Best day of our lives, thanks to the Mayowood Stone Barn!

  • This is a beautiful venue, there is no doubt about it. Guests were blown away by it. They were very available via email whenever we needed them and they were quite responsive. They handled all the issues with fire code and music violations professionally. I have one major complaint and for me this was a very big deal. We got married over labor day and the thing I was most concerned about was being hot. I understand that is a risk you take when you have an outdoor wedding as we wanted to get married by the oak tree. However, the Stone Barn rents air conditioners, we were assured that we could decide day of if we wanted to pay to rent those air conditioners for the barn barn. So even if it were hot outside, our guests could then go inside and be cool for the meal and dance party. The 15-day weather forecast came out and it was predicted to be in the low 70s over labor day weekend. An email was sent out to all the couples that they would be sending the air conditioners bac...
