About De Novo Barn

De Novo Barn is the perfect blend of rustic chic and elegance, fused together in a magical setting that will make your wedding day the experience of a lifetime. Our barn is located in Madison Township, Winneshiek County, in Northeast Iowa on a ridge overlooking the scenic Oneota Valley and Upper Iowa River. At De Novo Barn, we provide a destination venue with a special focus on a complete wedding package.

De Novo Barn features an authentic post-and-beam Amish-built barn, as well as a restored circa 1900s one-room schoolhouse. Both buildings are fully equipped with heating, air conditioning and all the modern amenities. Surrounding the barn are grounds specially designed to be an intimate and enchanting setting for outdoor weddings and receptions. After your wedding ceremony, your guests can stroll out onto the expansive patios for cocktails and mingling. Our many beautiful gardens will be on full display for your guests to enjoy. After dinner, complete your memorable day with dancing in the barn or under the starlit sky. 

Our barn not only serves beautifully as a wedding and wedding reception venue, but also as a locale for corporate and social events year round.
