The Stonehaven Barn is a beautiful and unique country-setting venue in De Soto, Iowa, and is the perfect, relaxing location for your next wedding & reception, company retreat or family reunion. This restored 1920’s barn has 3,000 plus square feet of floor space with a wet bar and loft space to accommodate a band and/or speaker. With 12 Smith & Hawken wood tables, there is dining or business meeting seating for 110. Additionally, inside the barn there are “his” and “hers” restrooms.

On the Stonehaven Barn Grounds, there is an outdoor kitchen area with two large gas grills, a wet bar and two buffet-like cement islands. There are also picnic tables scattered around the complex for additional outdoor seating. An adjacent courtyard-like area is perfect for additional seating or use with a 30 x 40 tent.

Next to the outdoor kitchen sits a large stone fire pit, horseshoe pits, a fenced-in play area for children and last but not least, gravel parking for up to 60 vehicles.

  • Stonehaven Barn is a gorgeous facility. Sadly we decided to change our wedding plans and take it closer to Des Moines. They were very professional and quick with their responses. There seemed to be very affordable and helpful with our questions. The only issue we discovered was that it was a little bit of a drive from the central Des Moines area. Overall very professional and helpful staff and gorgeous grounds.
