About Us

Schafer Century Barn is a delightful wedding venue located in Adair, Iowa. This family-owned property boasts rustic charm and old-style allure that is sure to appeal to so many to-be-weds. For a long time, Susan and Tim Schafer had intended to restore the 1915 structure, but it wasn’t until their children were preparing to marry partners of their own that work actually began. Having hosted these initial celebrations, the bucolic building has since welcomed a number of diverse “I do” occasions. Today, it serves as a beautiful, wholesome, and attention-grabbing place worthy of milestone occasions.

Facilities and Capacity

Get-ready rooms provide privacy and comfort for the pre-ceremony preparations. Owing to the multifaceted nature of Schafer Century Barn, ceremonies may be enjoyed in the open air or indoors. Those seeking to celebrate nuptials outdoors can take their place in front of a makeshift arbor against a backdrop of tall trees. Here, vows may be exchanged as the wedding party watches on from seated positions on the lawn. Alternatively, the pond near Schafer Century Barn can be the gathering place as the couple officially become newlyweds in the comforting embrace of nature. The barn itself can also host the event where two people are joined in matrimony. It would be ideal for those seeking shelter from elements on days when the weather is not ideal.

Inside the lovingly refurbished barn, the reception revelries can be enjoyed by all. The authentic barn doors provide a majestic entryway for the fairytale occasion that would be particularly suitable for the couple’s grand entrance. Exposed beams and pillars add to the grandiosity of this decades’-old premises, while warm lighting and ample seating help to create a truly inviting space. The total capacity of this venue is approximately 200 people.

Services Offered

An event planner can assist the couple of honor with certain aspects of the preparations in order to reduce the stress of the milestone. In addition, the staff at Schafer Century Barn are happy to welcome outside vendors on site. Couples can invite their favorite companies and talented professionals to make the occasion truly personal and distinctive. Tents, chairs, tables, and linens are some of the available event enhancements that can be furnished. In addition, WiFi makes it easier for everyone to share their photos of the festivities online, keeping those who could not attend connected to the event. Those keen to stay the night prior to the wedding are welcome to rest in a selection of onsite accommodations. These are located not far from the barn, or in the nearby town.

  • We just had our wedding this weekend at the Schafer Century Barn. The venue is gorgeous! We actually had multiple guests tell us how much they loved it and thought it was the perfect venue. Susan was great to work with. She was super accommodating from the first time I contacted her up to the today. She checks in often leading up to the event and responds to emails, calls, and texts very promptly. We paid for the first package and added on unlimited ice, paper products, and staff. We did not pay for dust control, but they did it for us anyway which was super appreciated. There are just a few reasons I am not giving this wonderful venue 5 stars. The first one is that it's capacity is 200 people, but we had about 130 attend and it was pretty tight. We had a really hard time getting tables to fit for 130 and people were pretty tight even after we got the layout to work. Reason number two is the staff we paid for were not very helpful.
