In the Spring of 2014, the Scents of Cedar Wedding Barn was opened. In early 2016, the Barn was renovated to include sliding barn doors on both ends to help keep the rain out. It’s a 23′ x 38′ covered structure accented with a wall of galvanized tin art, wine barrels, soft party lighting and church pews from a local Petersburg church. Day or night, the Barn has a charming rustic ambiance. There is ample seating and a built in buffet side board. It’s a wonderful, country chic Barn Venue to host small events such as weddings and receptions, birthday parties, baby gender reveal parties and other special occasions. The number of guests that can be seated inside the Barn is determined by the types of dining tables that are selected, or if bales of hay are used for seating. The is also ample room outside of the Barn for dining tables as well.
The Barn sits next to an acre-sized pond on the back of the bed & breakfast property. There is a fountain that is operational throughout the year. The arbor at the edge of the pond is a very popular site to exchange wedding vows. The arbor is covered with white clematis ornamental vine in the spring and wisteria. For a brief period in early spring the dogwood trees along side of the arbor will bloom and the ornamental plum trees with burst with pink buds.
There is also a circular gravel path surrounding the pond. This setting is great for casual or romantic walks in the evening. The pond is stocked with catfish and small mouth bass. There’s something truly relaxing about feeding the fish. Fishing poles are also available. The only thing that we ask our guests is that they honor our catch and release policy.
