What We Offer
The Barn at Ross Farm was created for the bride who wants her vision of a vintage wedding to come true. Our goal here at Ross Farm is to work in concert with her to make her dream a reality and to host her guests with professionalism in a friendly atmosphere. We attend to details and make the whole event effortless, as well as allowing the bride freedom to add her personal touches where she desires. Ross Farm is THE setting for vintage or rustic weddings!
Our natural neutral tones are the perfect canvas to add those special wedding colors and themes that customize each and every wedding so no two weddings are ever alike.
Our Barn is hand crafted with all wood walls, framing, siding and concrete floors. Complete with open-air Pavilions with wood beams and draperies, the Barn overlooks a spring-fed pond and acres and acres of hay meadows lined with hardwoods that turn golden in the fall.
Other features of the Barn are the well appointed dressing rooms, Caterer’s workroom kitchen, lighted parking close to the Barn, and inside restrooms to keep your guests comfortable.
Ceremonies can be held in the Meadow under the sky, inside the South Pavilion…or on the East Lawn overlooking the pond with your guests seated under shelter. We even have a Big Oak Tree with low lying branches in the north pasture just a hundred yard walk away where the entire group is under the canopy of the tree. Many lovely location options for you to decide!
Ross Farm is available for the wedding season late March through November. The Barn is heated for cooler weather and is equipped with ceiling fans throughout for the warmer season.. (The west wing is central A/C where the dressing rooms and restrooms are located). Enjoy the gas log stone fireplace in the fall and early spring!
For overnight stays, lodging is available in nearby hotels located in Ooltewah, TN, Cleveland, TN, Chattanooga, TN and Dalton, GA.
You are permitted to serve beer and wine at Ross Farm for your reception/after-party with certain requirements.
Lighted, ample parking is close by for your guests…and shuttle service is included for your latecomers to get them to the Barn quickly. Your challenged, handicapped guests can enter the building easily because there are no steps. Folks with walkers and wheelchairs can move about easily on the level floors. The restrooms have handicap features as well.
The uniformed staff at Ross Farm anxiously awaits hosting your dream wedding! Courteous and friendly, our staff loves weddings and enjoys being at your service.
