Choosing Melhorn Manor for your event is the ideal choice when you want an authentic barn wedding in Lancaster, PA! With more than three acres of property, Melhorn Manor dates to 1750 in the small town of Mount Joy. The Melhorn family purchased the farm at the turn of the 1900s when it was a working dairy and horse farm. More than 70 years later, John W. and Sandra Melhorn converted the barn to commercial use.

Now, this family-owned and operated venue is a premier location for dream weddings, corporate events, family gatherings, and even an area for artists or instructors to hold classes or retreats.

You can still see the original wood beams and stone walls inside our barns, but rest assured that you'll also have modern conveniences. Two of the barns are fully climate-controlled, and we have ample outdoor space for yard games and photo opportunities.

You can choose to host your ceremony and reception with us or feel free to make our barns your dream wedding reception location. If you host a corporate or family event with us, you'll have your guests talking about how spectacular our venue is for years to come!

"Two years ago, my husband and I attended Melhorn's open house and fell in love. The fact that Jess and Allory put on such an event shows how much they care about their couples. From start to finish, we were blown away with Melhorn. I loved all of the options we had on their property. I was someone who didn't want a room flip, and Melhorn gives you options for your ceremony location, which worked perfectly for us. Every space they have to offer is drop-dead gorgeous. Jess is so amazing with keeping to a timeline and thinking of every little detail. Being a type-A planner, I thought I had everything figured out. Jess was able to see the things I forgot and help problem solve. Jess and Allory both ensured our day went as smooth as possible, which allowed us to enjoy our special day. I can't say enough positive things about Melhorn. Let's do it all again!"
