The Mayowood Barn was more than we could have imagined. Not only were they very organized and helpful leading up to the wedding day, but they had someone around all day to help answer questions. Letecia, the person in charge was also there to greet us as we left and that meant a lot. If you are looking for a wedding venue your guests will love this is your place.

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 and loved having experienced a wedding in this unique way. Due to rain earlier in the day, we moved the wedding ceremony to the loft and again - it looked absolutely gorgeous, romantic, breathtaking.... we had everyone gather before dinner in front of the barn to have the toasts given from the loft balcony window. Jacque and Kev said that it was one of their most favorite parts of the day as they were able to look down at all the important people in their lives that had gathered for their wedding day. I still pinch myself a month later as the mother of the bride - even though I had always dreamt of what it would be like to help plan and execute Jacque's wedding, it ended up being more magical than I had even dreamed of....I couldn't be more satisfied about the day.

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!

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 minute items-make sure to ask them about the rentals!

Overall, my husband and I loved the venue and could not imagine getting married anywhere else. I was standing behind a curtain that hid the reception area as the guests when upstairs for the ceremony and could hear the comments as people walked in and it just warmed my heart as I waited to get married! We received SOOOO many compliements on the unique venue and photos turn out amazing!!!
