The story of how this barn came to be a wedding venue is a fairytale itself.

Once upon a time, it was a dairy farm. Then it was a working horse farm and now it’s an elegant venue that really captures the essence and the spirit of Chautauqua. It’s a true blend of local craftsmanship with an authentic farm feel and it has rustic touches that are accompanied by timeless, elegant details. 

You’ll still find friendly horses roaming the pastures on 160 acres of breathtaking countryside. CHQ Barn is located less than 5 minutes from Chautauqua Lake and 90 minutes south of Buffalo making it a great destination wedding location.

The CHQ Barn made its debut as a wedding venue back in June of 2019. Since then, hundreds of weddings have been hosted here. 

If your dreams of saying I do involve a rustic barn in an idyllic setting that’s surrounded by acres upon acres of countryside, you’ll want to schedule a tour of this venue. 

The newly-renovated 6,000 square foot barn features chandeliers, a champagne wall, restrooms, a live-edge bar, a bride’s room, and tables and chairs for 250 guests. There’s even sliding barn doors open for guests to enjoy the stunning backdrop and a fire pit outside. 

Regardless of the season, it’s a picturesque place to celebrate your love story. There’s multiple locations on the property to host your wedding ceremony and there’s an on-site cabin that’s perfect for accommodating the bridal party!
