This is a beautiful venue with spacious areas for the bridal party and groomsmen. There is a separate salon area for makeup and hair preparations. We had an outside wedding and used the tent for the open bar and hors d'oeuvres before dinner was served. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The grounds are well maintained with magnificent views. The barn can comfortably hold 100 guests if you use the tent and outdoors to serve drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Beautiful and Rustic Wedding
I recently did the flowers and decorations for the William's wedding at the Homestead. The venue was rustic and beautiful. The owners and staff were very accommodating and super helpful as we shifted plans at the last minute with the promise of great weather for the day. Everything went smoothly and it was the perfect day. Special thanks to Jacqueline whose great attention to detail and help was appreciated more than she will ever know.

Top notch!!! After working over 3500 weddings in the last 20 years I can honestly say this venue is a vision. If you want a country setting this is the place to go. Jacqueline is a delight. Versatile and very attentive. I highly recommend this venue.

We had a great time, having the venue all weekend really helps! The Shenk family is very kind and always tries to please the customer. We had a fantastic time!

A dream come true venue!
I wish we could give this venue 10 stars! The Homestead on Peanut Road made all our wedding dreams come true. We truly could not have picked a better venue and family to work with while planning our special day. They offer the total package and more! We were able to decorate the entire day before the way we wanted and had our rehearsal dinner onsite. We loved having our wedding and reception all in the same place with breath taking views, while also being able to stay the night of the wedding with accommodations of up to 12 people from our wedding party. Doug and Pat Shenk and their daughter Jacquelin were truly a dream to work with and their farmhouse is beautiful. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and went above and beyond in helping us prepare for the day. They set up a 20x20 tent which they provided for us to use and cleaned off chairs the morning of the wedding that were covered in dew. They also took all of our gifts into their house the night of the wedding which was one less thing for us to worry about. We also had a beautiful breakfast made and set up for us the day after the wedding which was included in our package but was such an extra bonus. They are such a great family to work with and their barn is a hidden gem. I still have family and friends raving about how nice their property was and how beautiful and secluded it was for a wedding. They are fair with their pricing and make sure to accommodate you in any way they can to make your day special. Do not pass this place up! We wish we could relive our wedding day, everyday, at The Homestead!

I would highly recommend The Homestead on Peanut Road not only because the Shenk family is so helpful, hospitable and available but because the views are amazing! We chose the package to stay over the night before and it was the best decision! We were able to finish decorating and last minute touches, stay in such comfortable beds & beautiful rooms and then woke up the next day to the most DELICIOUS breakfast. I loved being able to have the ceremony and reception at the same location. The pond was a beautiful backdrop for my ceremony and the barn with the chandeliers and lights made the perfect reception area. The views of the mountains and the fields are breathtaking. I especially loved how I had the freedom to plan/decorate how I wanted. The Shenk's kept in touch with me well in advance so that my day was stress free & were readily available that day and the day before to help with anything we needed. I literally cannot complain about one thing with this venue. I cannot thank them enough for making my day so perfect!

The Homestead on Peanut Road is where we chose to celebrate our wedding day, surrounded by the people we love most! The things we enjoyed most about having our ceremony at The Homestead were the freedom to decorate the ceremony space to match our rustic dreams and the convenience of having the ceremony in the same location as our reception. Also, the views and scenery for our ceremony were absolutely breathtaking! We received PLENTY of compliments about our ceremony location from all of our guests. It was secluded and intimate and romantic; there was enough seating for our family and friends; and the archway was provided for us (but we added our own floral arrangements). Our reception, following the ceremony, was extremely special because I had always dreamed of having our wedding reception in a big, beautiful, red barn! It was special because it was cozy enough for my groom and I to enjoy our family and friends. It was simply stunning all on it's own with chandeliers and lighting all around! The barn did not need much decorating, which really helped us with our budget. Overall, my husband and I would recommend The Homestead on Peanut Road because the Shenk Family were the most hospitable people we have ever met. Their simple details really stood out (like having enough towels for each wedding party guest to shower with). And they made communication and interaction with them a breeze. They even made a homemade, fresh salad for my mom the night of our rehearsal dinner because she couldn't eat the pizza we ordered! Doug, Pat, and Jacqueline really go above and beyond to please everyone! I would also recommend Jacqueline's team of hair and make-up professionals! Thank you Homestead on Peanut Road for making our wedding dreams come true!!!

The Homestead on Peanut Road was an amazing place to have our wedding. It ended up being everything I had dreamed of for my wedding and more. It fit within my budget and was a great place for both the ceremony and reception. Beautiful scenery, and an amazing barn.
