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?

Why settle for one historic barn for your perfect wedding when you can have several?

The historic Scott Farm doesn’t just have one barn for your wedding: It has several. Exchange your vows in the farm’s courtyard, nestled amid lovely and historic white barns, next to a pond with year-round running water. Then celebrate with a delicious catered buffet or plated dinner, with a customized menu, in the Apple Barn event room, where dozens of windows let guests look out onto the stunning farm and the mountains behind it. (The barn may also be used for ceremonies.) The farm, which dates back to the 18th century, is part of the Landmark Trust USA, so there are several nearby historic homes (including a sugarhouse and carriage house) perfect for your Vermont honeymoon.
