Well I am not sure about where you are but here in the wine country the ONLY thing you got for renting the barn was the barn. Everything else (insurance, potties, tables, chairs etc) was seperate and my responsibility. That is why I opted for an alternative venue.

We were in a similar situation with a private barn. Our rental fee was $1200 and included 2 deluxe (flush toilets, sinks with water) potties.  We had to take out private insurance for $1,000,000 plus alcohol insurance seperately.  We rented chair/tables/linens from our caterer. Depending on the situation they may or may not include bathrooms (when we were looking we saw both options). The delux bathrooms cost about $500-600 for 2.

I wouldn’t count on the rental including anything but the barn itself. Anything else should be discussed. they may be willing to throw in something else, but don’t assume.

I looked at several barns, and what was included was all over the place. One barn was similar to what you’ve mentioned- several thousand, and NOTHING was included. They even double booked weddings on Saturday, which I think is ridiculous for what they are charging.

The venue we ended up going with ($1800) includes bathrooms, bar set up, tables & chairs (some completely free, some at a very low fee), million dollar insurance coverage, and heat. They have been great to work with and I’m glad we waited to find them. We also have free use of an extra cottage type building on the property for the groom/groomsmen to get ready in.

For $250 extra, we’re renting a nice cottage on the property to spend the night of the wedding in. It’s adorable.
