Owned and operated by Matt & Kim Dale, SylvanDale is a historic farmstead located in the Round Lake Flats east of Hayward which dates back to the late 1800's. Constructed of ancient cedar, fir, aspen and yellow pine; the Swedish style barn's aged and weathered exterior exhibits the character of over 100 yrs of work, storms and exposure. The renovation started as a labor of love for Matt & Kim's wedding in 2015. The south side of the barn was grown over and an age old concrete floor and foundation was found buried under 6 inches of soil which later became a beautiful courtyard and garden complete with chicken and cat prints enshrined in the mossy and pitted concrete. In 2016 Matt & Kim decided they wanted to share their beautiful barn and work to restore and preserve it for future generations. The milkhouse and barn were further renovated to provide 3000 sq. ft. of interior space featuring a balcony, loft, dining hall, stage, bar and dance floor. The barn and courtyard are enclosed in old wind swept Boxelder trees that provide privacy and shade in a sylvan setting. The surrounding fields provide vistas of hayfields leading to wooded edges.
