Barn for Parties
Does anyone know of any large rustic barns for rent near
Berkeley? We would love to rent a large open barn for a
party in the countryside. anon
it's not out in the countryside, but in downtown oakland,the
pardee mansion has an old coach house that fits the bill.
my girlfriend rented it for her 50th birthday party and it
was very cute all decorated with twinkly lights, luminarias
along the walkways, buffet table etc.
the grounds are lovely and the mansion serves as a beautiful
backdrop. the party was a hoot!
but yes, it is right smack dab in downtown next to the
highway. rent was very reasonable as i remember.
darn it, let's barn it!
Garin Park in Hayward has a lovely barn where I have
square danced at different park events. You could rent it
maybe. It is a wonderful setting.
We are looking for a rustic, yet beautiful barn or other structure in
which to hold a wedding and/or reception. Does anyone have any
recommendations? The gathering would include 80-90 people. Thanks!
Look at Nestldown, near Los Gatos. Beautiful, outdoor
(expensive!) location with a barn. http://www.nestldown.com/

Try Diablo Ranch on Mt. Diablo. had a family birthtday party there and it
was super fun. the stables are outfitted with pool tables and other stuff
and the woman who owns/runs it is really terrific. it's a bit of a drive
up a winding road, though, so that was a drawback for older relatives but
if you plan ahead, you could take care of your guests somehow.
Sea Ranch Lodge - A friend had a wedding reception in the barn next to the
Beltane Ranch in Glen Ellen is BEAUTIFUL, and has a barn. However, most
people get married outside on the lawn beside the main house (lovely oak
trees). I think the barn is available for wedding-related parties,
bar-b-ques, etc. so I don't see why you couldn't be married there too.
Check their website and ask them. It's expensive, but such a wonderful

I am looking for a barn or barn-like structure to hold a party
(small wedding actually). We plan to cater it, and have
music/dancing, so the barn would have to be animal free
and empty. Any suggestions would be helpful, I am not
having much luck with this. Thanks!
You might want to check out ''The Barn'' in Livermore. maybe a
little far? but I grew up in Livermore and recall many a country
and/or polka dance night there with my folks as a fun evening
out. It's a city-owned huge sheet metal barn with cement floor
and great huge wooden beams near the (old) main Library.. I think
it's on Pacific Ave - if a quick search doesn't yield anything,
call the reference desk at the Livermore Public Library and the
reference librarian should be able to point you to the right

Try contacting Smith Family Farm in Brentwood.
Although a little different, there is the Camel Barn in Benecia.
