RENTAL

The barns may be rented for large events starting in early May and ending in mid-October. The rental season may be extended for small to moderate sized events.

Wedding Event Guidelines

Historic Barns of Nipmoose
All three barns are included in the rental fee for a Wedding Event, with each playing a significant role. 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. 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.

Grounds
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.

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

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

Capacity
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.

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

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

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

Lighting
All three barns are equipped with Barcelona string lights. 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.

Staff
The Persistence Foundation Staff oversee the use of the premises. The staff will be present during the entire Event Rental Period, including the allotted Set-Up and Break-Down time.

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

Event End/Closing
All Events must end no later than 11 p.m.
