Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This stunning restaurant and event venue is adjacent to the wonderful Briar Barn Inn. Just north of Boston, it offers a gracious, farmhouse-inspired guest experience and—our favorite part—one of the area’s most luxurious spas.
  • Your garden terrace ceremony site is so pretty, set on a lush lawn within view of the barn, surrounded by flowering plants, and sheltered by the widespread branches of mature trees.
  • The two-story barn is utterly charming, with a lovely built-in bar, plenty of natural light, hardwood flooring, and a soaring wood-frame ceiling hung with circular candelabra chandeliers.
