The Blue Boat Barn is our showcase barn for weddings and special events. This rustic building, once used for pigs, now possess modern amenities, and comfortably accommodates up to 200 seated guests. The West facing porch provides an amazing view, overlooking the surrounding hills and meadows.

Our spacious barn maintains historical character with a wooden ceiling, exposed beams, vintage windows, original doors the farmers used to let their pigs out, and large east and western facing wooden barn doors that slide wide open, allowing ample breeze to keep guest comfortable. Topping off the perks, the venue is only 1.2 miles East of Lake Maxinkuckee, and just 3.5 miles from the Culver Academies Campus.
