If I could give 10 stars I would! I can not say enough about the ladies at The Allen Farmhaus. They really made everything so easy during the wedding planning process. Cassie and Maitlyn made us feel like family every time we took a tour. They listened to our ideas and even helped us choose many of our vendors from their recommendations. The day of our wedding, they helped everything run so smoothly. I had such a calm day and was not stressed thanks to these ladies! Not only did they do a great job helping with my wedding, I received so many compliments on the venue! They really thought of every detail to make weddings special. I would not change a thing about my wedding day. It was everything I had dreamed of. Thank you so much!!
This place is truly a gem!! I had my wedding there on June 3rd and I could not have been happier with my choice. The family is AMAZING and truly awesome to work with. They go above and beyond to make your day perfect! I loved working with people who loved what they do and make everyone they work with feel like they are the most important client. The venue in itself is clearly beautiful and somehow they continue to make it even better! I would strongly recommend this venue to anyone looking, you will not be disappointed!
Can I only give 5 stars?? We got married about 3 weeks ago, and could not have been happier with the venue and the amazing Kraft family! They truly treated us like family, meeting us at the venue whenever we asked, answering all of our questions, and going above and beyond the day of. All of our guests raved over the beautiful venue and how amazing the staff is. The Kraft family is full of energy, great ideas and will work hard to make your day perfect. I recommend them highly!
My fiancé and I toured about 12 different venues (yes, 12!) for our wedding. We knew we wanted a barn but couldn’t seem to find the right fit anywhere. Then we met Cassie and Maitlyn (owners/managers) at the Farmhaus, and thank God for them! Our wedding is this March, and I seriously can’t say enough amazing things about Cassie and Maitlyn. They have been the most down to earth, welcoming, and overall amazing people to work with. Throughout the process, they’ve been so comforting. Every time I freak out over a tiny detail, they’re easy to reach, and they calm my nerves! The venue speaks for itself. It’s so beautiful. I know I may sound silly, seeing as though many others get married here, but there’s something about it that feels special and unique, like it’s just for us—our “place.” That’s what The Allen Farmhaus brings. It doesn’t feel like a rotating door. You’re not just another couple—you feel like family! A huge thank you to the Krafts for being great people and for bringing this beautiful space to life for my fiancé and I to always remember. I can’t wait till our big day!!! ❤️
The Allen Farmhaus was the last venue that we looked into for our wedding and I'm so glad it was because we saved the best for last. The sweet family that runs this venue is the absolute best! They made our wedding day stress free. Cassie and Maitlyn were willing to help me with anything before the wedding. When it came to the day of the two of them were out helping do anything that my coordinator or family had in mind. The property is bewitching. It is a perfect place to get married because of the natural beauty yet you can still accommodate your own styles. I wish the best to every bride to be! Go talk with the ladies and let them help make your day perfect!
I had the most amazing experience with these girls! My wedding was the most incredible day because of this amazing venue. They did everything they could to make it perfect and really made us feel like family. All of our guests were complimenting us on the venue. Highly recommend The Allen Farmhaus, not only for the gorgeous space but the amazing people that own it. Love yall!!
Cassie, Maitlyn, and their family are the sweetest people you will ever meet. We never felt like we were dealing with sales people or venue staff, it just felt like we were hanging out with friends. They were over accommodating and willing to work with just about every one of our requests. We were there so often, any other venue would have stopped letting us in. They are genuine good kind people. We could not imagine celebrating our wedding anywhere else. Along with the southern charm that the family brings to the venue, the venue brings a ton of its own as well. It is a blank canvas that you can paint your masterpiece on. Thank you Cassie! Thank you Mait! Wish we could get married all over again at The Allen Farmhaus!
Oh goodness... Get excited future brides... This place is the best!! The wonderful sisters & owners, Cassie & Maitlyn, are the most kind and caring people (along with their supportive family) you could have to help you during a fun but hectic planning process! They were so attentive and responsive from our first visit all the way to Wedding Day and even still after as we share pictures and words of affirmation from ALL of our guests. My now husband, John, and I celebrated the beginning of our life together (aka our wedding day) at The Allen Farmhaus. From our ceremony at the new open-air chapel (which couldn't have been more perfect) to the AMAZING Reception and finishing off with a sparkler send-off!! This little slice of heaven, and the wonderful women who run it with love and oh so effortlessly, was the best way to start our happy marriage!! Having the gorgeous hay fields and beautiful Texas sky as backdrop made it all the more magical. We were able to take a short moment to ourselves and sit in the nostalgic white rocking chairs together to gaze at the stars. It was a beautiful moment and one I shall cherish of my wedding day forever :):) The weather turned out beautifully and allowed us and our guests the pleasure of having all the doors open for the big party allowing the gorgeous outside in. The chance to explore the grounds and get in some fun pictures with the hay bales, twinkle lights, and the sunset was great for all our friends and family from near and far to take in some fresh air. The Bridal Suite (the awesome 100+ yr old refurbished home) was idyllic for my best friends and I to hang out and get ready while feeling right at home. The natural lighting from all the big windows is perfect for makeup application and all the pictures of everyone getting ready. The Grooms Suite was perfect for the guys to relax and have fun while waiting to get ready. Who wouldn't want to play pool, ping pong, air hockey or a round of poker at the custom table with their best friends? We couldn't be happier with our selection of this beautiful venue for our special day!!! We would definitely do it all over again because it was just that great!! Thank you Cassie & Maitlyn (and mom and dad) for all that you did and have done for us.... So glad to know y'all!!
I couldn’t have imagined our wedding anywhere else! The venue is beautiful, and perfect for a party that flows indoors and outdoors seamlessly. From the first time we visited The Allen Farmhaus, we knew it was meant to be our venue. Between the owners feeling like family to us, the bridal suite with such a neat history, the amazing reception hall, and the open air chapel that was under construction, we were in love! I could not be more thankful for Cassie & Maitlyn, and their wonderful family, for creating such an amazing venue and making sure our day was perfect.
This was the far most magical, loving, charming and welcoming place to have your wedding. As bride to be at the time, they made planning very easy. The most amazing thing they work together as a family. I would do it all over again!! Best wedding ever!!!
We knew this place was perfect for us on our first visit, and we had an absolutely wonderful day here. Cassie and Maitlyn are so wonderful to work with. It is truly a family affair! We loved every moment of our wedding. The setting is beautiful with all of the lovely outdoor space. It is filled with personality and very unique. Cassie and Maitlyn were responsive, helpful, and made every one of our requests happen so that we were able to make our wedding really reflect our personalities. We wanted an outdoor wedding that was beautiful, organic, and relaxed, and everything fell into place perfectly thanks in large part to all of the help and hard work of Cassie and Maitlyn. We are so grateful. I would recommend Allen Farmhaus to anyone!
BEST WEDDING VENUE EVER!! I can't say enough about this venue. First off it is family run. A huge plus because you get to work with the owners directly. Maitlyn and Cassie are both so AMAZING. When it came to our wedding day we we felt like they were part of our family. We didn't have a day of wedding coordinator so Maitlyn and Cassie and their wonderful mom, Pam stepped in to make sure everything went perfectly. The wedding venue is absolutely beautiful! A lot of blood(Maitlyn) sweat and tears went into building this venue and it was all done with love by this family. They are continually making upgrades to the venue to make it even more beautiful than it already is. Robert and I are proud and honored to have had the opportunity to be married here. We love you guys!!!
I cannot say enough about how wonderful the Allen Farmhaus is. Cassie and Maitlyn are one of a kind and treated us like family. I chose the venue because of the breathtaking views and the love and care the family provided. On our wedding day, there was a hurricane. It sounds terrible, yet the Allen Farmhaus exceeded my expectations and the show went on. It was absolutely seamless and beautiful thanks to the family.
We are incredibly in AWE of how perfect everything was with this venue! The owners Cassie and Maitlyn are amazing! They are are personable, and so helpful. They make sure your day runs smoothly and genuinely care about what you do! They have many great local recommendations for vendors! I would recommend this venue to anyone! The Farmhaus is gorgeous, every where you look is jaw dropping. Wedding of our dreams!!
I loved everything about this venue! Cassie and Maitlyn are the loveliest people and will go above and beyond to make your day special. The property is beautiful in a rustic, laid-back way. The bridal house was a great place for me and my girls to get ready, while the guy had a blast in the groom's man cave. The barn is so beautiful that you hardly need to spend anything on decorations. Our photos turned out beautifully, there was plenty of room for dancing, and all of our guests had a wonderful time!
FantastiC!!! The allen Farmhaus is absolutely gorgeous. the whimsical lighting in the trees at night made it so romantic. I love having the wedding and the reception in one place. The staff especially Cassie and Maitland were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. As a bonus, the pictures that my photographer took on the Allen Farmhaus property came out amazing because of the beautiful property.
My experience with The Allen Farmhaus was extraordinary. From the day that we first stopped by (when the venue had just finished being built)... until we ran through the sparklers on our wedding night, these girls went above and beyond to ensure that our day was perfect. They added so many things I couldn't even imagine possible leading up to our wedding including the gorgeous open air chapel. They are constantly working to enhance the grounds and landscape, I can only imagine what is next in store! Another great thing about this venue is that it has a modern farmhaus look which makes the space so versatile even if you aren't the typical "rustic" bride. My dream wedding became a reality here, and I would highly recommend to any bride!
I wish there were more stars for rating because The Allen Farmhaus and the wonderful people who run it deserve more than 5. The girls worked literally around the clock the weekend of my wedding to make sure that everything was ready to go and looking amazing. The outdoor chapel is absolutely gorgeous and with the fields in the background it made for a very peaceful ceremony. Then we opened the barn doors during the reception and it was super nice letting the evening breeze blow through. I wish we could do it all over again!
The owners are not in the business of making money- rather they are in the business of being part of people's special days. They go above and beyond to make events perfect. They are very accomodating, fun, and have made this the perfect venue for any event. My husband and I visited with the owners before the barn was built, and saw no floorpans, renderings, or even sketches of what they were envisioning, rather we just heard what they were envisioning, and their passion sold us! Once we saw the venue completely built it was better than what we could have imagined for our wedding reception.
I was lucky enough to visit this site while they were still working on it. My boyfriend stayed late a few times to help with it all, so I decided to bring him dinner. After we ate he took me around the property and I just couldn't help but fall in love with it! The family that owns the venue is so kind and helpful! We have decided to have our wedding here in April and I just can't wait!!!
Amazing location and beautiful venue
The Allen Farmhaus is an absolutely gorgeous venue! From the time you set foot on the property, your eyes will be drawn to so many unique and amazing details. This venue offers a rustic elegance with breathtaking views of the countryside. The owners are a family that have invested their hearts and souls into making this property a perfect place to have your event. They will go above and beyond to make sure each and every detail is taken care of with grace and dedication!
Short story: great venue Long story: my fiancé and I were looking for a venue in the hill country that we could have both our ceremony and reception at and could been outdoors. This place completely fit the bill and was more than we could have even imagined ourselves. We said we wanted a barn ✔️ We wanted Edison bulb lights ✔️ We wanted outdoor space ✔️ We wanted a rustic feel ✔️ We wanted lots of outdoor space ✔️ We wanted it to feel like home for our guests ✔️✔️✔️ We couldn't have asked for more and the ladies working there were great too. If you are looking for a venue in the hill country that is actually reasonably priced- look no further.
The Allen Farmhaus is an amazing venue! The scenery on the property is beautiful and the indoor areas are impressive. I liked the large dance floor and the overall fun atmosphere! The Farmhaus is selfie and picture friendly, everywhere you look is great photo opportunity. There is a lot of space to have lots of fun inside and out. The ladies at the farmhaus are very helpful and just the best!
There's not a bad thing I can say about this venue or the family that runs it! The venue grounds, huge barn, and beautiful country backdrop will help make for a wonderful reception and celebration. The Kraft sisters made us feel so welcome the first time we saw the grounds, and we can't wait to have our special day at the Allen Farmhaus!!

Cassie and Maitlyn
Raised on a farm not too far from The Allen Farmhaus, sisters Cassie and Maitlyn had always dreamed of getting back to their roots and working together. After discussing the idea of starting a wedding venue together for years, the two decided to finally take a leap of faith together. In October 2015, the sisters traded in their pen and paper for power tools and started to renovate the Bridal Suite. Since then they have worked on numerous other projects at The Allen Farmhaus and never looked back. It brings them joy to share the property, its history, and its future with others.
