WIX Barn and Lodge is located just 2.5 miles south of I-94 Exit 84, near Richardton, North Dakota. It is along Hwy8 on the Wicks family ranch. It transitioned from sale barn to WIX Barn and Lodge in 2016. It is family owned and operated by Zane and Mary Jo Wicks, along with their two daughters, Josie and Mya. The "WIX" name is the cattle and horse brand used by Zane and was also his family's brand in South Dakota.
The WIX is a multi-purpose space where the indoor hall can seat 150 for a sit down meal (fire code is 308). The event hall offers a rustic chic space which is equipped with air conditioning. It can be used for weddings, reunions, lodging, graduations, scrap bookers/quilters, bridal/baby showers, birthdays/anniversaries or just a weekend getaway in the beautiful western ND.
Outdoor pavilion was added in 2018 that can be used for an outdoor ceremony or outdoor gathering that everyone can enjoy. This space can hold 300+ people.
