Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked into a pretty hillside and surrounded by the Mother Myric, Scallop, and Green Mountain ranges, this secluded, private venue offers one of the loveliest settings in southern Vermont.
  • At the top of one of the open meadows, you’ll find your idyllic ceremony spot. Set with a rustic arbor and handmade wooden benches, the site is dappled with shade from nearby trees, and overlooks the vast valley and mountains.
  • The restored vintage barn is an absolute dream, with rough-hewn lumber, exposed rafters, and a second-floor deck that makes an awesome cocktail area. Traditional sliding doors open to the expansive outdoor area, offering even more space for your festivities.
