Located in the rolling hills of Bethany, Iron Horse Ranch is straight out of a fairy tale, with a storied stone barn, and a charming covered bridge overlooking a 2-acre pond – all situated on meticulously maintained grounds. Steeped in history, and built from salvaged and repurposed materials, the barn at Iron Horse Ranch offers rustic luxury for you to host your event with capacity for up to 200 guests. With the property and amenities at your disposal, you are able to take the reins in the planning process; hors d’oeuvres under the veranda, or in the corral? Ceremony by the pond, on the peninsula, or perhaps in front of the aged barnboard doors? The choice is yours. The only limit at Iron Horse Ranch is your imagination.

Designed to look and feel like a century barn, the barn at Iron Horse Ranch was constructed using traditional methods of mortise and tenon masonry. The stone was sourced from the old high school in Owen Sound along with materials from the YWCA in Peterborough. The ironwork, including the gates, chains and brass door handles were rescued from the Collins Bay Penitentiary in Kingston. The cobblestones at the base of the stairwell are from the walkways around the J. W. Little Stadium at Western University. The plank flooring was salvaged from the Petawawa National Forestry Institute, while the charred panels at the back of the bar are the rafters from a fire at the Lindsay jail. These features create an ambience of storied Ontario histories that is sure to impress and elevate your experience at Iron Horse Ranch.

The Wilson family, who purchased the property in 2021, invite you to dream about your perfect day at their unique location. They will work closely with you and your vendors to put together a seamless event.

Unlike other venues, Iron Horse Ranch only holds one event per weekend, ensuring couples are not rushed to be in and out. Fridays are available to you and your family for decorating and rehearsals, while Saturdays remain the common day for weddings, leaving the Sunday for a leisurely cleanup and teardown.

Not only does Iron Horse Ranch offer the venue of your dreams, they have a hand-picked list of verified vendors that they regularly suggest to couples in the planning process. From caterers to decorators, photographers and florists, the family at Iron Horse wants you to have the absolute best.
