Nestled in the picturesque town of Candor is a charming venue called The Beautiful Barn. Owned by Sarah Edwards and Rodney Dyer, this property now holds a sentimental piece of Southern Tier history that will provide an idyllic backdrop for weddings, celebrations, and other special events.

Adding to the allure of The Beautiful Barn Venue is a nostalgic piece of Southern Tier history - the recently acquired Treadway Inn gazebo. Purchased at an auction in April, the gazebo is preparing to host its first wedding in July, marking a new chapter in its rich history.

Sarah and Rodney, both seasoned building contractors, undertook the renovation of the 130-year-old barn and its surrounding grounds five years ago. The outcome is a harmonious blend of rustic elegance and modern sophistication, creating a space that radiates warmth and character.

The former Treadway Inn gazebo, now prominently featured at the Beautiful Barn Venue, provides a breathtaking backdrop for a range of memorable events. Surrounded by majestic trees and vibrant wildflowers, the gazebo serves as a romantic setting for weddings, vow renewals, and other special occasions.

In addition to the gazebo, The Beautiful Barn Venue offers various enchanting spaces, including a bridal suite, groom's room, dining hall, and outdoor decks with picturesque views. The property also boasts friendly farm animals, such as ponies, a donkey, and peacocks, adding a whimsical touch to any event.
