Apple orchards and a two-acre lake surround the cidery barn creating a picturesque view that will accentuate your big day.

Beautiful space

The entire place is gorgeous. We decided to have the ceremony outside in the trees, but our rain plan was to move it to the upstairs loft in the barn, which is honestly just as beautiful. I can't recommend this place enough.
