I'm not sure where to start. There are no words to express our love for Byron Colby Barn. We recently had our reception at the barn and it was a dream. It is simply gorgeous. You can easy tailor the barn to fit your needs or style. Our wedding day was HOT & humid but our guests were so content with the temperature of the barn - which is really important. The preferred vendors list is beyond helpful. We found our photographer, restaurant, DJ, and a few other vendors on their list. Kim was a pleasure to work with and I will miss seeing her! Byron Colby was so such an intimate and relaxing venue to celebrate it with our guests. My husband is already planning to have an anniversary party at the barn in the future! :)

My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at the Byron Colby Barn with about 80 of our friends (May 2016) and were happy to find that the venue and support staff exceeded our expectations. We have attended events at the barn before but did not know what to expect as hosts.

Fortunately, the barn manager, Kim DeRose, provided very helpful information to us at various points along the planning timeline. She offered suggestions, yet did not attempt to steer us away from some of the potentially unconventional element we desired (e.g. low waste event with environmental theme). The flexibility in timing for our set up activities was especially appreciated. The feedback we received from our guests was all favorable and we feel we built a wonderful memory.

We recently had our best friend's baby shower at Byron Colby Barn. The barn is simply beautiful and perfect for our theme - it has rustic feel yet charming and warm. It's set on a Prairie which gives you that farm feel without going too far from the town. It is located in the heart of Grayslake ,convenient for all our guests . All of our guests could not believe how beautiful the barn is, I couldn't imagine how much beautiful it would be during warm days where you could enjoy the courtyard and the gazebo outside.
Kim, the manager is very welcoming and cheerful. She is very easy to talk to, and right away we know we are "home". She gives suggestions and recommendations and prompt answering all our questions. She texted right away even on weekends and during her days off. The day of the party, she allowed us ample time to decorate before and clean up after, at a relax pace so that we truly could enjoy the entire celebration from beginning to the end.
From a crisp beautiful weather of January, great food, gorgeous barn , friends and family who came and Kim's help... we have ZERO complaints except the day has to end.

The Byron Colby Barn was the absolute perfect place to have our wedding. Being a DIY venue, I was able to transform this barn into the vision I had of our wedding day. This barn made my dreams a reality. The barn itself, without adding anything, is just absolutely beautiful. We had about 160 people and it sat them all very comfortably. All of our guests were blown away walking into the barn. I honestly cannot say enough about it. If you choose this barn as your venue, consider yourself the luckiest person in the world. Also, Kim, the barn manager was wonderful to work with as well. She is incredibly helpful, quick to respond on any question I had, and overall just an absolute pleasure. Kim, I thank you for all of your help. It was truly an honor to hold our wedding here.

The Byron Colby Barn is an amazing venue for any of you do-it-yourself brides out there! It's a beautiful, historic, and rustic building and the market square courtyard is perfect for an outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour.
Kim is very professional and timely - she even texts which is super handy!
I highly recommend this venue!
