Applegate Barn is a fantastic venue with every room spotlessly clean upon our arrival. The facilities are just great and the venue provided us with everything we could need. There's also a supermarket under 10 minutes away. We loved our stay, thank you Jane and Andy!

I booked the Applegate Barn for my boyfriend's 30th birthday party. We were a big group of friends and we honestly had a great time. The barn, the setting, the grounds, everything was spectacular, looks even better than the pictures. The owners were super sweet and provided us with all the information about the various things to do in the local area. We would absolutely recommend this venue!
