We just got married at mayowood stone barn last weekend and could not recommend it more. Melissa was extremely helpful and always so quick to respond. We worked with Adam for catering and he was incredible as well. Both went above and beyond to make the day perfect. Melissa let us come out 3 more times after the tour to calm my OCD about decor. Some family members made comments about the location (we are from the cities) but that was something we loved the whole time because only people who really wanted to be there came. In the end everyone loved that we got a getaway. We got the free trolley through the doubletree and went downtown with our friends after our rehearsal dinner and wedding and everyone had a blast in Rochester! The price of the barn compared to others in the city is incredible and the price we paid for a served dinner with passed apps and an open bar was nearly half of the city prices. We didn’t necessarily want a barn but did want an outdoor ceremony and a garden style wedding. Unlike other barns it was so easy to transform the barn into whatever you wanted being it does have a more fancy European vibe but also can be rustic. The day of the renovations made the barn more beautiful than we had ever seen before and guests were so stunned by the beauty of the venue! The property was perfect for us as we wanted a fancier wedding but loved that we could still be outdoors. Hearing so many people complain about things at their venue makes me so happy we went with Mayowood. They not only met our expectations but exceeded them and I would recommend the barn to anyone!!!

It’s clear just by looking at the venue, that it won’t take much to make your wedding gorgeous! To top it off the service and the food make it even better! Melissa was wonderful for helping get stuff set up and any questions we had. The staff were there the whole time if we needed them. It was just all perfect! Thank you for the perfect wedding!

We LOVED having our wedding at Mayowood Stone Barn! The location and buildings are beautiful in person, and they make for stunning pictures! Our guests kept complimenting the staff, catering, and location over and over--saying it was the most beautiful wedding they'd been to. It was such a relief to have all of the decorating items we could possibly need on site! The staff were very easy to work with, flexible, and reassuring. I would recommend Mayowood to ANYONE planning a Minnesota wedding!

Mayowood Stone Barn was a dream come true. It was incredibly gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. Melissa, our contact, was there whenever we needed her and even took a call off hours to help us with our seating plan. She was there during our rehearsal, suggesting ideas for set up as well as back the next morning at 9am to help with the wedding day set up. Not to mention that the ceremony has to be moved inside last minute due to a storm that rolled through. She had the appropriate people there to help move everything inside and made sure it looked absolutely beautiful. She was so kind and accomadating, even when I was a little stressed because of the last minute rain. If you book your wedding at Mayowood Stone Barn, it will be beautiful. We received so many compliments throughout the night and after. Thanks Melissa for all your work! We truly appreciate you!

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!!!
