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.

Byron Colby Barn is absolutely stunning! We chose to have our ceremony & reception both inside the barn, given it was early October and Chicago weather was so unpredictable.
We saved a lot of money in several ways....
1) We had our wedding on a Sunday, and it was only 50 people
2) You can purchase your own alcohol from Binny's and they will deliver it to the barn.
3) We made all our own centerpieces/decorations.

It was awesome! Not to mention the staff was soooo great.

Thank you Byron Colby!

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!
