My wedding is not until 10/8/2016 (however I most definitely stand behind my 5/5 rating for this establishment already), but I have already had an AMAZING experience with Historic McFarland House. Going to an event there for Shepherd University was my first taste and I met with one of their wonderful employees who gave me a quick tour once I told her that I was looking for a wedding venue. They are quick to answer any question by e-mail and are very accessible. I got quotes on venue prices on a few others in the Martinsburg/Norther Virginia area and Historic McFarland House is by far the best value I've found! After exchanging e-mails for a few weeks, I set-up another tour with my fiance and my mother and we were sold. We got to meet Chef Brad and are super excited to work with him on our food selection as he is open to trying new things for couples who aren't in to the "traditional" wedding food. The interior is decorated to perfection and the garden had a magical feel! Even though my fiance and I have a long while until our big day, we know it will be a stress-free road with the staff at the Historic McFarland House working with us!

Overall the space was good. It is a little awkward with being announced and dance floor is closed off from the crowd. They had trouble keeping up with the drinks at the bar. They needed more help in that area.

I haven't yet had my event, but the help received from the staff and the time they took to make sure that I had the information I needed, as well as scheduling the tour, confirmed to me that I have chosen the right place to hold my wedding!

Historic McFarland House is absolutely gorgeous and flexible, and everything you could want if you're not looking for something typical in a wedding venue. We had 3 different wedding coordinators, but each one of them got up to speed quickly and was wonderful helping us. We had a day of disaster and Michelle was calm and extraordinarily helpful. My only hiccup with this venue deals with the fact that they're in the process of opening a restaurant. There were lots of changes, and we had to fight for some of the things we were promised when we signed our contract. The house had changed quite a bit and was quite obviously still undergoing renovations. None of that ruined our beautiful day, and I would still HIGHLY recommend McFarland house as a venue!! The food and cake we had were AMAZING! Everyone is raving about it.

we had a wonderful experience with Becca for our wedding on 10/25/15. The McFarland house was the perfect fit for our autumn, edwardian ceremony and wedding! Becca was prompt and easy to get ahold of with all questions and concerns we had before the big day - but there really weren't many since everything was clear and thorough in all of our planning meetings. we had approximately 55 guests at our wedding and chef brad created a wonderful menu for us that was sensitive to our vegan and vegetarian guests but also filling and delicious! we were very pleased with our experience and would recommend the McFarland house to any other couples who are budget conscious but also seeking a unique venue!

When I found the Historic McFarland House I knew I had found my venue. They are pros in holding special events and weddings so I never worried about logistics. They also let me come by the day before to drop off decor, which was a ton of stuff, so that was one less thing I needed to worry about the day of my wedding. I loved having butlerettes there to support me and my bridesmaids and the groom and groomsmen as well. I loved the experience and I have heard nothing but great feedback from all of my guests.

The team at the Historic McFarland House is incredible. If you want a wedding that is stress-free and all about you, this is the place to be. They take over from the morning and you are able to enjoy the entire day. I wish I could re-live it. And the planning process with them was great. Use this place for a wedding. We had 175 people -- they can fit you!

We were married a year ago at the Historic Mcfarland House and overall it was a great experience. The space is beautiful and the people who we dealt with were responsive. Of course nothing is perfect and there were a few mishaps: the audio was very low throughout the ceremony and it wasn’t until someone from the venue realized (during the reception) that they need it to turn it up, (this should’ve happened before the ceremony started). The cake did not look like what I gave them a picture of and the food portions were small. I was hungry the night of my wedding. Lastly, I remember them telling me that saving cake for my 1 year anniversary would not be necessary because they would re-make and ship to me. This sounded beyond amazing and I regret not getting this in writing. I called a month before my anniversary, turns out that they don't really do that. So someone lied to me? I don’t get it. The worst part was that I didn’t get to eat my 1st year anniversary cake. I would’ve saved it otherwise.

McFarland House was great. Everything went well and ran smoothly. There were a few things I felt they could have been a little more flexible on, however I think most wedding venues would have done it pretty much the same way.

My wedding day was absolutely perfect! The only mishap I had was the linen company they use sent the wrong colored napkins but the coordinators there fixed the issue within minutes and my correct napkins arrived in plenty of time! The food is amazing and my guests couldn't say enough good things about the house and how smoothly everything was!

I can't say enough how amazing it was to have my wedding at the McFarland House. When you walk in it is like being in a different time, it is old and elegant, there is so much charm in the place that I knew it would be perfect for our wedding. We started planning early so I got to speak with Jeffrey and Karen many times and they were always very helpful and made the wedding planning very easy and with no stress. I had no idea that the staff at the house really run the wedding and this was a huge and very pleasant surprise. It was literally the best day ever. Cynthia was assigned as our Butlerette for the day and she did everything from iron shirts, get drinks and food and took amazing care of my 93 year old grandmother. My grandma said she felt like Cynthia was part of the family. Jeffrey was ensuring everything went smoothly on the set ups and that the whole wedding was on schedule. The food was amazing and the desserts flew off the table. We did a buffet and it was fast and smooth. No long lines or people taking forever to get food. We had about 95 people there and it seemed they all got their food in about 20-30 min. Many of the guests commented to me on how it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to and this is in large part due to the wonderful staff of the McFarland House. Even the wait staff were very friendly and easy to talk with; they were very attentive to little details. I usually feel the need to check on things and make sure all is going well but I was so at ease that I was able to just relax, have a great time and ENJOY my wedding. I could go on and on, it was really just the best experience that I had here. I would definitely recommend that you have your wedding at this location. I don't want to overdo it on the gushing but I can't help it. This will be a day that I remember forever and there wasn't one thing about the day that didn't go perfectly. This is the best that any Bride could ask for.
