Barn Weddings & Venues in New England

New England is a farming region, and some of its retired barns have been transformed into wedding reception venues, with an atmosphere that will warm your heart and charm your guests at a rustic wedding. These post-and-beam structures have wooden flooring, tall ceilings with beams dripping with sparking lights, raised hay lofts converted to ceremony and party spaces. The entire place brims with a feeling of family, community, and old times – except that they usually have a modern catering kitchen, staging, a bar, and accommodation for audio-visual needs. Make yours a warm and memorable wedding experience. Who wouldn’t join a barn dance?

Post-and-beam barn will bring ‘rustic luxe’ to your wedding ceremony, reception

At the Mountain Top Inn, a breathtaking location all four seasons, they call their style “rustic luxe”: that combination of mountain lodge feeling and luxurious modern amenities. And the resort’s Barn wedding venue is the perfect example of that style: a beautiful post-and-beam barn with exposed rough-hewn beams, pine flooring, a wall of windows and rustic light fixtures where your reception guests are served from an exquisite, sophisticated catering menu. Upstairs, the Loft serves as the ideal ceremony site, with its custom-made birch arbor and floor-to-ceiling bay windows showing off the lake and mountains. Guest accommodations include lodge rooms, cabins and guesthouses. And the resort’s full-service spa specializes in wedding hair, makeup (and relaxation).
