The value of family and friends and creating something bigger than herself was instilled in Amanda Cottingham Johnson at a young age. It continues to fill her heart and guide her life. She wished for the opportunity to share the charming property she owned with others. It has become a special place for many of life’s celebrations. Choosing the name “Bay Horse Inn” from the etched window that hung in her childhood home, she has built a wedding barn and business that is recognized as one of the best in Indiana. Amanda, along with her husband Dallas and their four children, are proud to welcome you to their beautiful venue.

100% recommend the Barn at Bayhorse Inn. The staff was super friendly and make you feel comfortable from when I first went to our meeting to check the venue out in 2018 until my wedding in June 2020. From a bride during Covid they went above and beyond to help as I was extra nervous about planning details. On top of the top notch service from staff, the venue is absolutely gorgeous all year round and no matter inside or outside wedding. I am so glad we chose this venue that was also reasonably priced for all that you get.

Picking a venue was not an easy task, but I am so glad we decided on the Barn at Bay Horse. The staff is SO accommodating and professional. The venue is beautiful, and we are still getting compliments a year later. We ended up having a rainy wedding day, and the venue turned out to be perfect for the unexpected weather. Thank you so much for making our day a fairytale!

Nothing but great things to say! So beautiful on its own to where you don’t even need a lot of decor. Jenna & Jennifer helped me so much along the way and were so kind and understanding. I was able to have my dream wedding thanks to this venue. Everyone keeps commenting on how beautiful it was ❤️ highly recommend!

The Barn at Bay Horse Inn was nothing short of perfection from the first meeting to the days after our wedding. When we first signed the contract to have our wedding at the Barn at Bay Horse Inn we never thought a year later we would have to work closely on rescheduling due to COVID!!  The place looked gorgeous, the staff was amazing with helping decorate which was not their job and the bar service was amazing. Our family friends still to this day talk about how beautiful our Venue was. Thank you Barn at Bay Horse Inn for making our wedding day dreams come TRUE!!!
