Peak Season

From May-October couples can enjoy full use of our post-and-beam barn venue, with access to an outdoor terrace and patio with additional seating, bistro lights, and views of our landscaped lawns and forested surroundings. If weather permits, an outdoor ceremony can lead seamlessly into the cocktail hour on the restaurant terrace and the Burrow. The Burrow is a small private dining room with entrances adjacent to our main dining area with a private bar and restroom. 

Receptions are hosted in our open-concept dining room with hardwood floors, and exposed beams. Our restaurant features rustic farm tables with plenty of seating, black double-ring industrial chandeliers, and a full bar in the center of the room. The Bramble House has vaulted ceilings, a private bar, restrooms, a fireplace, and plenty of natural light just beyond the main dining room. The open concept of this area creates additional indoor space for a cocktail hour, and dessert. The second floor includes a larger private suite, complete with a private restroom, sitting area, and loft that are well suited for getting ready before an on-site ceremony.
