I don’t know of any near Monticello.  But there is a great one near Red Wing.  I think it’s called the Round Barn or something like that.  Probably too far out of the way for you though.

I’ve been trying to look around for you.  I’m from Red Wing and know how expensive the Red Barn is, otherwise that would be a great location!

Here’s the Earle Brown Heritage Center, I haven’t been there, but it looks like an interesting place..

Another option is to look at something historic, and there’s plenty of historic sites around Minnesota! Mintahoe has a few including the Nicollet Island Pavillion

I’m with you!!! I LOVED the red barn and then realized their prices were astronomical. 🙁 Same with Earl Brown center. Pretty expensive plus catering..ugh. Let me know what you come up with!! 🙂 We are about a month and a half before you.

I’ve never heard of the Art Barn. Just one in Alexandria.

Have you thought of an apple Orchard? Check Deer Lake Orchard. I know it’s in Buffalo but it’s a thought. http://www.deerlakeorchard.com/private.html

Look into the Apple Jack Orchard or something along those lines and maybe you could find something!

Please post if you ever find one that is affordable.  These pictures are my mental images of a barn reception.. All the barns I have seen, including round barn in Red Wing, is at least 3,000 including nothing but location rental.

Unless they have changed their practice, I believe the round barn also requires booking their entire B&B as well….

Try Gale Woods in Minnestrista, MN! That is where I am having my wedding in August.

I don’t know why I hadn’t thrown it out there before, but if anyone’s interested in a barn looking location (although it doesn’t look like it from the outside) try the Village Hall at the Little Log House Pioneer Village.  Such a unique location that has pretty much any picture location you can want.  The village hall has nice beams and wood walls giving it more of a barn feeling on the inside.

Background on it:  The owners have been purchasing old buildings slated for demolition and moved them to their property just outside of Hastings.  They have an antique power show each year in July that’s a show of old tractors and period actors and such.

The Riley Jacques barn in Eden Prarie allows you to bring in your own food and beverage. It is an adorable white farmhouse homestead with a white barn. The grounds are beautiful and parking is ample + it costs only $500 to rent for the day. The only thing is that you must wrap up your celebration by 10 p.m. however you could start earlier in the day. Also it is wired for sound as they have bands play there.

 

I hope that this helps and works out for you.

Hi Sept2610!  Have you picked a site?  I myself am looking for a location just like yours.  Those pics you posted are beautiful!  I am too going for the rustic/vintage feel preferably inside a barn.  I feel like there are no venues like this in MN?  You would think with all the barns in MN we would have something!  I hope everything fell into place!
