Nicole & the entire team at Sawyer Family Farmstead are absolutely INCREDIBLE!

Nicole & the entire team at Sawyer Family Farmstead are absolutely INCREDIBLE! I seriously can not recommend them highly enough. I planned my wedding from across the country (which I assumed would be really stressful) and Nicole made it a piece of cake. We had regularly scheduled calls throughout the entire process, and she was always able to answer my questions right away which put me at ease. We ended up loving every local vendor that she recommended we use, and she was always professional and efficient when working with them. Nicole took the time to meet with us for multiple site walks whenever we were in town visiting, and always listened to any feedback I had. The day of the wedding could not have gone more perfect and that was all thanks to Nicole's planning skills! All of the staff at Sawyer Family Farmstead are so accommodating and friendly & it was such a wonderful experience working with them!!

Stunning venue and amazing coordinating team!

I can't say enough good things about this venue and the the coordinating team! The setting is absolutely stunning. Pictures truly don't do it justice. The farm is quiet and peaceful and contains so many beautiful spots from the breathtaking mountain and lake views, to the hidden paths through the trees, to the whimsical bridge with string lights that crosses the creek. They also provide excellent accommodations. The reception area is beautiful and well laid out. Plus they have a diverse array of decor options.

Raquel and her team were friendly, helpful, prompt, supportive, professional, flexible and quick to accommodate. They helped us pull off our large wedding in just 2 months and did a fantastic job in the process. I loved getting to work with them and appreciated all the effort they put into making our wedding flow smoothly. They were quick to offer help, give suggestions, and bring my vision to life. Definitely a dream team :)

I'm so thankful we were able to have our wedding here and would highly recommend it to others!

Amazing Venue!

Chimney Pond Farms is a beautiful location! More than half of our guests commented that night on how serene the views were and how intimate it felt. With multiple houses for guests to reserve through Airbnb, the wedding weekend feels like you are living in a small town with your family and friends. We stayed with our wedding party in their Farmhouse, which created a fun weekend before our wedding. The wedding itself was excellently run by Raquel, who coordinated everything. We told Raquel what we wanted, and she smoothly moved us through the process, especially on the day of. She was friendly, professional, easy to communicate with, and extremely understanding as we made last minute changes. She also went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and make sure things went cleanly. Raquel and her assistant Brook made our wedding weekend work, and we are extremely grateful to them and Chimney Pond Farms. Our wedding was the best day of our lives.

This is one of my favorite places to officiate weddings! You can't really beat the amazing views from the ceremony site, which is perched atop a mountain overlooking a lake, mountains, and trees. The reception space is also impressive, and the staff and service is top-notch!
