Historic Barns
The rental fee includes all three historic barns. The Scottish Barn is the largest barn and is most frequently used for dinners. The German Barn is most often used for cocktails at the start of a wedding reception, then dancing after dinner. The small Corn Crib has multiple uses, for example it can serve as a dessert station or for exhibiting memorabilia and place cards.

Dressing Room
The lower level of the German Barn is a spacious area for use as a gathering place or dressing room for the bridal party.

Workshop Barn
The Workshop Barn (which is not historic) provides a large working space for caterers.

Ceremony Locations
The Renter may choose any location on the grounds for a ceremony. A popular spot is the aspen grove adjacent to the barns. In case of rain, ceremonies may be held in either the Scottish or the German Barn.

The barns are situated centrally on a farm of 120 acres. Several acres of lawn surrounding the barns are beautifully maintained, while the remainder of the land is cultivated by a farm family. The mowed area encompasses a pond and flower gardens as well as an aspen grove.

The designated parking areas can accommodate up 80 cars. There is ample room for buses to turn around.

Three charming restrooms are provided, one of which is handicap accessible. With weddings of more than 180 guests, a portable restroom is required.

The Scottish Barn can seat up to 180 guests. For larger weddings (maximum 250 guests), a tent is required.

Vendor Recommendations
Recommendations for vendors are available upon request.

All food for the Event must be provided by a licensed caterer of the Renter’s choosing.

Liquor License Required
Alcoholic beverages may only be served by a caterer with a valid New York State Liquor License and/or Caterer Permit.

A designated space with underground electricity is available. Rental of a tent is required for Events with more than 180 guests.

All three barns are equipped with Barcelona string lights. Furthermore, the grounds surrounding the barns and the parking area are lit with more than eighty lanterns hung from shepherd hooks.

Set-Up and Break-Down
Included in the rental fee are a five hour Set-Up time (preceding the Event) and a one hour Break-Down time (following the Event). Renters may retrieve any belongings left at the barns from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. the day following the Event.

Time for a rehearsal on the day prior to an Event is available at an additional fee.
