Lake Elsie Wedding Barn

Built-in the 1950s, Lake Elsie Wedding Barn is one of only 4 surviving Gothic Arch barns in North Dakota. Lake Elsie Wedding Barn pairs rustic, rural charm with contemporary elegance. With a soaring 30-foot high hayloft arch, over 5,000 square feet of useable space [accommodating up to 325 guests], this strikingly reimagined barn is the perfect choice for your special day. Situated on 5 beautifully tended acres, Lake Elsie Wedding Barn is between the shores of Lake Elsie and Grass Lake. Our property offers numerous possibilities for ceremony, reception, dance, photography [including engagement photos], socializing, and games.

Bringing Rustic Charm to Your Wedding Day

Sandy & Marshall are excellent and very professional to work with. Bride and groom can say their vows by the beautiful beach or indoors, you can have the caterer or your choice, bus available to take guests to and from motels. My husband and I along with the wedding party, stayed at the Lady on the Lake and Sandy was so helpful and also served us delicious meals. Your guests will love this beautiful setting as we had so many compliments. This venue is very reasonable for all the options that are available. This place would be perfect for any celebration. Thanks Sandy and Marshall.
