Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A former dairy farm, Fern Hill Barn is a private country escape blessed with idyllic scenery and a ton of sweet surprises -- a brick and glass greenhouse; a quaint pond; two homey get-ready suites with on-site hair and makeup services; and the namesake ferns creating a lush carpet of green beneath the mature trees (also a divine photo opp). 
  • Your wedding aisle is a stone walkway that crosses a feathery lawn to a wood gazebo, with forests and hills providing a painterly backdrop. For dining and dancing, a spacious, open-sided white pavilion aglow with fairy lights and a whimsical black-and-white checkered dance floor offers a festive ambiance. Then there’s the Grand Barn itself, which gives off rustic country vibes, thanks to exposed beams and whitewashed walls, original pine flooring, a built-in oak bar and a double-sided fieldstone fireplace.
  • Convenient build-your-own wedding packages, top local vendors and a caring wedding team will ease your planning stress. Located less than 60 miles from Boston, Fern Hill Barn is also accessible from surrounding cities like Springfield, Hartford and Providence...Welcome to that hidden wedding treasure you’ve been dreaming of!
