Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This charming farm, with its 325 acres of meadows and woodland, has been helping create memories since 1978. That’s when local families began to flock here to partake in seasonal joys like cut-your-own Christmas trees, berry picking, and pumpkin harvesting.
  • The pretty red Barn boasts ample indoor and outdoor space, and everything looks so pretty as evening falls, with the buildings and grounds illuminated by twinkle lights as the sun sets over the distant hills.
  • You can rent the beautiful 1791 House for your weekend lodging—the cozy home, which sleeps up to eleven guests in its 6 bedrooms, is outfitted with a modern kitchen and gathering spaces large enough for the whole family.
