A BACKYARD IN BARTO, PA

About Us

History comes to life during your farmhouse wedding at the Bally Spring Inn. Located on 29 beautiful acres of farmland, The Bally Spring Inn is just 30 minutes from Allentown and 90 minutes from Philadelphia and Harrisburg in Barton, Pennsylvania. The Bally Spring Inn is part of an old farm settled in the 1700s. Historic limestone quarries make an exquisite backdrop for your first-look pictures. The lovely country gazebo opens to spectacular countryside views of Berks County.

Your guests are transported back in time at the Bally Spring Inn. All the buildings at the Bally Spring Inn are constructed from stone extracted from the quarries on the property. The farmhouse and carriage house, constructed in the mid-1700s, each have four beautifully appointed rooms available for your guests. Outside the farmhouse are the historic smokehouse, lime kiln and root cellar. The barn can accommodate up to nine of your wedding guests. You and your fiance can enjoy the barn’s stunning honeymoon suite. Complete with a Jacuzzi tub and fireplace, it’s a cozy escape after the night ends.

The Barn. Stone and woodwork crafted by hand, the Pennsylvania Dutch barn has distinctive architecture and is ideal for your indoor wedding and reception. The rustic barn with modern touches has exposed natural wood floors and ceilings. Stone walls, accentuated by a large stone hearth fireplace, add a warm feel to the space. Guests can venture out onto the outdoor deck overlooking the inn’s grounds. The barn can accommodate up to 150 guests.

The Farmhouse Banquet Hall. This area is country life mixed with garden charm. The wood ceiling and beams add just the right amount of woodland flair to the soft white tones of the hall’s decor. The large windows let in bright natural light and the fully stocked antique bar is reminiscent of times past. While you dance the night away, your guests can also explore the farmhouse’s sitting room and porches.

Outdoors. With more than 29 acres of rolling countryside, the Bally Spring Inn has a number of beautiful settings for your wedding ceremony. The beautiful gazebo is a picture-ideal place to exchange your vows. The farmhouse in the background mixes the past and present impeccably. You can also choose to have your nuptials by the Perkiomen Creek. The soothing sounds of the water make you feel one with your love and nature.

I am so happy that I chose the Bally Spring Inn for our wedding. I booked this venue over a year in advance and during that year there were many changes. All of those changes ended up being positive especially when they hired Stephanie. Stephanie was absolutely amazing to work... Read More with and made sure that they day went incredibly smooth. She was always there to answer any questions or help solve any problems leading up to the big day. The best and most surprising thing of all was that Stephanie and her staff put up all of my decorations for me the day of the wedding. I brought everything to the bally spring inn and they placed it all and cleaned everything up after so there were absolutely no worries the day of the wedding. The food was amazing as well. You cannot go wrong with what entree you pick. We also had our rehearsal dinner there (amazing) and had a bonfire (so much fun!). So even though it rained on our wedding day and we had to be moved inside last minute I am so happy we chose the Bally Spring Inn and were blessed with such wonderful staff to make sure that our day did not get ruined. I cannot say enough good things about the bally spring inn and Stephanie.

Where do I even begin to describe this special place!?! I got married at the Bally Spring Inn in May 2017 and it was honestly the best day ever! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, the staff was extremely friendly (especially Stephanie- she is the kindest, good-hearted women I... Read More have ever met), and the food was marvelous. All of my other vendors (DJ, photographer, and videographer) all marveled at the beauty of the Bally Spring Inn. A month later, I am still getting compliments about how fabulous my wedding was. I chose to have a buffet at my wedding, and I'm pretty sure that everyone went up for seconds because the food was that divine. The filet with blue cheese crumbles was to die for! The Bally Spring Inn is a beautiful barn that has been completely restored to look like it did the day it was built. I was lucky enough to have beautiful weather on my wedding day so my ceremony was outside, but if it did rain, the inside option to hold the ceremony is just as beautiful so it's not a bad plan B to have! In fact, I held my cocktail hour in the building where a ceremony could be held because the vaulted ceilings with beams is stunning. I was lucky enough to have my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception in three different locations on the property so my guests were really able to see all that the Inn had to offer. Once you plan a visit to see the Inn, you will understand exactly what I am talking about. Thank you again Bally Spring Inn for giving me the best day ever! Xoxo

I wish there were more than 5 stars to select from, because The Bally Spring Inn is definitely a 10 out of 5! Most amazing venue, most amazing team, and most amazing food! As soon as we turned into the driveway of the property for the first time, I absolutely fell in love with... Read More it, and every time we came back after that, I got that same exact feeling as the first time we arrived. "Beautiful" doesn't even begin to describe the property itself! Not only is the property stunning on its own, but the team at Bally Spring keep it looking absolutely spectacular every day of the year. Stephanie, the Director of Sales, is outrageously knowledgeable when it comes to the venue, the flow of the day, and weddings in general. She always had the best suggestions for other vendors to use or what to do for the ceremony/reception in order to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible. Stephanie and the rest of the team at Bally Spring are extremely flexible and willing to work with you on your "dream" set up and do whatever it takes to make the day exactly what you want it to be! I cannot recommend The Bally Spring Inn enough to anyone and everyone planning a wedding. Most amazing venue and team out there!

I can't say enough good things about Bally Spring. I've actually never written a review for anything, but our wedding day was so perfect and the staff so accommodating that I felt I had to spread the word. From start to finish, Stephanie, the Director of Sales, made everything... Read More super easy. She accommodated our every request and even allowed us to bring our dog to stay in the Inn. Everyone we interacted with was wonderful and the day was completely stress-free. My husband and I felt that we and our guests were really taken care of and we were able to truly enjoy the reception. The food was fantastic and people are still talking about it! Additionally, our families and friends loved the location and the beautiful grounds. A number of them stayed overnight, and their rooms were excellent. Every staff member payed such thoughtful attention to detail that we can't thank them enough- Stephanie even brought us a special couples' breakfast the next morning, even though they were already busy preparing for the next wedding. If you're looking for a venue within easy distance of Philadelphia, I can't recommend Bally Spring enough. Our wedding was a dream come true.

The Bally Spring Inn is a beautiful country setting with various buildings and spaces offering flexibility within the venue for specific planning of any wedding or gathering. Stephanie's professional, warm and friendly demeanor was only outshined by her positive attitude,... Read More flexibility, and accommodating manner. From day 1 when we met her, she made planning a wedding (in 7 weeks!) such an enjoyable and stress-free process, it seems remarkable. Family and friends stayed over in comfortable rooms in the various buildings, collected at the bonfire by the creek following the reception late into the star-filled night, and at the farewell breakfast the following morning......most folks didn't want to leave. I think some of the best recommendations for Bally Spring were reflected in guests' positive comments and requests for contact info for their own future events (one co-worker of mine is keeping Bally Spring "on file" for possible venue for her daughter's wedding someday in the future.....daughter is still in high school....hardly even dating yet...that says something). The venue is beautiful, relaxing, yet sophisticated; the food was so delicious and the chef accommodated forewarned food allergies. The planning and coordination of everything went so smoothly. We requested and used Stephanie's suggestions for vendors - all were top-notch. The entire staff did a great job, and made everyone feel as if the place belonged to us for the duration of the 2 days we were there. Stephanie, and the other key staff members, made our event so remarkable that more than one guest said it was the "best wedding" they had ever been to.....except for one savvy guest who claimed it was the "2nd best" (after his own wedding to his wife within ear shot....smooth move.) No hesitation in highly recommending Bally Spring, Stephanie, the accommodations, the chef and food, and each and every supporting staff member who enabled us to create such fond memories of a time and place.
