We'll send more details later, so save the date for this exclusive event! Bring your fiancé (or a plus one). Don't worry your friends and family can see it at our public grand opening tentatively scheduled for Sunday, October 23, 2016. 

Here's a Sweet Idea

What's trending in events now are candy bars. Whether you are hosting a wedding, corporate event, anniversary, baby shower or more candy bars are becoming an attention grabber.

Candy brings smiles and adds a personal touch to your event.  We've partnered with Ella's Frozen Yogurt and Candy Shop in Greenwood, Indiana. Simply share your vision with our Ella's and our project coordinator Sarah and your candy bar will be customized to your preferences. They can even create a frozen yogurt bar with toppings. 

Perhaps have goody bags as your guests depart and let them fill their own momento from your special day.

Barn at Bay Horse Inn Raising Funds for LJC.


The Bay Horse Inn was proud to donate an event to the Leadership Johnson County Wine Tasting Tour of France.  The live auctioned package included a party for 60 in the Saloon including food, by Johnny Carino's, and Music by Black Water Gypsy.

Bidding started at $750 and the winning bid of $1300 was won, by Robert Heuchan's, of Mutual Savings Bank. All funds raised, by this event, benefit Leadership Johnson County at Franklin College.  The program started 22 years ago and is a huge influence in developing leaders within Johnson County.  People from different townships, backgrounds and occupations come together each year, to discuss and strengthen, our community. Learn more about Leadership Johnson County. 

Amanda Cottingham, Bay Horse Inn owner, also sponsored a table.  Joining Bay Horse Inn staff were Rob Henderson, from Mutual Savings Bank, and his wife Brandi. Our City Council Representative Jimmy Ison and his wife Mindy also joined our table.  

We look forward to participating in this spectacular event again!

A "sign" of good things to come.

Galena Drive & West Stones Crossing Road (Just west of 135)

Our sign has just been placed and thanks to huge support from our community we are off to a great start! The Barn at Bay Horse Inn is scheduled to open September of 2016.  Just east of the intersection at 135 and West Stones Crossing Road look just past the church and apartments, into the huge wooded lot. Our barn will be nestled in the trees you see.  We have been working with the well known south side builder Duke Homes. Our vision is a rustic barn with high end details and charm for a country chic event.  The event barn will seat 425 while the saloon seats 65. Learn more about our barn here.

We look forward to hosting weddings, corporate events, training sessions, private parties, anniversaries, vow renewals, bridal/baby showers and so much  more!  We're almost booked for Fall of 2016 and have several 2017 events booked as well. View available dates here. Call 317-760-8778 for more information or email Amanda@BarnatBayHorse.com. Our offices are located offsite until the barn is complete. We'd love to answer any questions you  may have.
