Frequently Asked Questions
Do you host weddings year-round?
No. We schedule a limited number of events each year, from mid May until mid October. Most couples opt for a Saturday wedding, but you’re free to choose a Friday or Sunday wedding date as well. The site rental fee is the same any day of our season.
Do you host weddings in early spring?
The weather and seasons in the Green Mountains are quite a bit different from lower New England. Spring and summer start a few weeks later here, with late April typically being one of the rainiest times of the year. The rain and our spring snow melt, makes it our ‘mud season’. By the middle of May summer has really kicked in, however, and everything has turned lush and green with pleasantly warm weather.
What about weddings in the fall?
We love hosting events in September and October and book events at our barn through the third weekend of October. After that, temperatures start dropping dramatically once the sun sets while daytime temperatures might still be comfortable. Fall foliage also tends to come to an end after the third weekend of October.
Can we tour your property?
Absolutely, we’d love to show you the barn and grounds. Just send us an email or call, and we’ll set up an appointment. In the meantime, you can also check out our PROPERTY MAP. We’ve also created a FLOOR PLAN of the hayloft level of the barn.
What is the payment policy?
Clients are required to make a 50% site fee deposit when booking their date. The balance of the site rental fee is due 10 days before the event date. Find all the details on our SITE FEE and POLICIES pages.
What are the minimum & maximum number of guests allowed?
We welcome any size party up to 125 persons.. The maximum number is set by our operating permits with the Town of Waitsfield and is based on the traffic impact on our rural, gravel road.
Do you have a list of recommended vendors?
Yes. Our vendor team includes: Let’s Pretend Catering & Catering By Dale for your catering needs • The Hydeaway Inn for beverage service • Vermont Tent Company for rentals.
Is a bonfire an option?
Does the barn come with tables and chairs?
Yes. See our inventory of tables and chairs on our SET UP page.
Do you host same sex weddings?
Where can we have our ceremony if it rains?
If it rains or the weather is poor for any reason, an INDOOR CEREMONY is held on the hayloft level of the barn.
