What gets people out to tour The Farm at Eagles Ridge is our restored 1820 bank barn. Not only is it a rustic reception location, the barn has air conditioning, heat, and modern amenities such as large bathrooms and a catering facility.
When people arrive at our venue, it's clear that we don't just offer a barn, but a location that cannot be replicated. Surrounded by 150 acres of farmland, our venue offers multiple wedding ceremony locations in Lancaster, two sparkling spring fed ponds, an intimate courtyard area, and a stunningly restored stone farmhouse for the bridal party to get ready. All of these beautifully renovated buildings work together to create a perfectly memorable wedding or event in Lancaster.
In terms of my favorite amenity at The Farm at Eagles Ridge, there are so many options to choose from! The barn has massive doors that open up to a courtyard area, which connects to our renovated corn crib. So you have this most spectacular indoor/outdoor "room" about which guests absolutely rave!
When restoring the barn, our goal was to maintain as much of the integrity of the original structure as possible and reuse as many of the original materials as we could. While the barn floor was in a state of total ruin, we were able to salvage enough of the original floor boards to create a sweeping staircase which leads to the upper level of the bank barn. The interior siding remains intact as do the beams, ladders and at the top of the 35 foot ceiling, the hayfork. The original corn crib offers an intimate space for smaller parties or events.
The natural beauty of the barn provides an optimal canvas for any type of styling, from rustic to sophisticated. Our talented vendors offer special draping and custom design services with creative options capable of exceeding any bride's dreams. Our preferred caterers are chosen because of their excellence in offering both top quality food and top quality service, and will design menus based upon sit down, buffet or food stations. Maximum seated capacity is 225 which includes plenty of space for a dj/band, dance floor, cake table and bars. Depending on the season our large barn doors open onto a beautiful courtyard area offering vistas of the ponds and woods, and an adjacent corn crib can serve as cocktail area or after dinner lounge.
Our bridal package at The Farm at Eagles Ridge includes exclusive use of the house, barn and grounds. The ceremony and reception areas can be as rustic or elegant as suits each bride. Our website showcases many different options for design... the opportunities are endless!
