Barn Rentals

Whether your objective is work or pleasure, Riverbend can offer guests a unique, tranquil setting set apart from the bustle of the Main Line. The Snider Barn, a renovated 1923 Sears & Roebuck catalogue barn, offers rustic beauty and a full line-up of modern amenities to perfectly complement your small to medium-sized gathering.

Our fully restored barn includes the Main Room suitable for sit-down dinners for up to 50 people, casual cocktail parties or slideshow presentations on our six-foot screen. Also available is our bright and sunny "Overlook Room" perfect for business meetings or our cozy "Mezzanine" library area overlooking the Main Room. A small kitchen to accommodate catering and two restrooms are situated on the Main Floor to provide you with all the comfort and ease you expect for your guests.

For slightly larger functions, we offer two finished patios as well as our outdoor classroom which seats 50 and has a covered stage area.

Please note – we have only 32 parking spaces so larger events will require hiring a valet service.
