Fern Hill Barn Celebrates Love & Family in Spencer, MA

Perched on a picturesque hilltop in the beautiful countryside of Massachusetts stands a delightful family-owned farm and wedding venue boasting 15 years of award-winning legacy.

Fern Hill Barn strikes an ideal balance between traditional and modern: an idyllic rural location that offers peace and seclusion while conveniently situated just 60 miles west of Boston for epic urban wedding adventures. The natural surroundings of this magnificent venue offer a captivating backdrop for joyous weddings and stunning photographic memories. From May to October, an elegant 1,400-square-foot tension pavilion covers the patio, providing shelter for up to 250 guests. Soft lights emanate from the pavilion's canopy ceiling onto a stunning black-and-white patterned dance floor. Black wooden Chiavari chairs adorn round tables with exquisite china, cutlery, crystal glasses, and luxurious linens. Enclosed sides and gas heaters are available in case the weather proves unfavorable. The ample indoor grand hall can comfortably accommodate up to 150 guests from November to April. Exposed beams, a generous fieldstone fireplace, and an impressive built-in oak bar will surely impress!

The original farmhouse serves as a private and luxurious get-ready space for your wedding party to prepare for the festivities, featuring a private suite on the second floor and even onsite hair and makeup services.

Whether it's the breathtaking scenery, romantic ambiance, or modern amenities, Fern Hill Barn has everything necessary to make your New England wedding dreams come true.

Amazing staff

We got to meet with Carly for our tour and she was an absolute ray of sunshine and really clicked with us. She was so ready to make several quotes for us to experiment with all of the options the venue had to offer. She also went out of her way to call us a week or two later to check in. At that point my fiancé and I had already decided on the venue but needed another couple weeks to make the down deposit and she was able to come up with a flexible plan for us to have exactly that time frame we needed financially but still lock in our date so it wouldn’t be taken from us. We couldn’t thank her enough for making that call to keep our date.

Later we had a meeting with Alyson for picking up our planning binder and she was very knowledgeable! She was patient with our questions, let us walk away and enjoy the venue for a moment as we thought of anymore questions and everything was able to be answered. She helped guide us through what to expect in terms of timeline and feel really confident.

Both of them have shown us nothing but warm welcomes and being in our corner throughout the whole process, and as a lesbian couple, we didn’t feel the same with a lot of the other venues we toured. They know what they’re doing, clearly passionate about the same little details we are and it makes the whole process feel like we’re a well oiled team. We couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to be able to stop by again soon for other appointments.

Wonderful place and wonderful people

We scheduled a tour to visit Fern Hill Barn, and from the start to the end, we had a wonderful time. Hannah took us on our tour and she was so kind, knowledgeable, and thorough. From the first few minutes of our tour we knew this was the place for us, and the team for us. The grounds were beautiful, and had everything we wanted. While we worked with Hannah the most, we also met with Carly and Alyson, who were both amazing also! Knowing these three ladies would be there to take us through every step of our wedding planning process, put our minds at ease and sold us on the venue. Once we had booked, they put together a binder for us, which Carly met with us to review. It was so detailed and helpful.
We were recommended to the venue by a friend, Ayla, who works there. She said so many good things about it that we decided to check it out, and thank goodness we did. Without her I don’t think we would’ve found our dream venue.

Best Choice We Made!

Choosing Fern Hill Barn as our venue was one of the best choices we made while wedding planning. The planning process went so smoothly and they were incredible professional. I loved the coordination team and they did so much on the day of to make it even more special. This venue and it's team really cares about the couple and make sure they have the best possible day. We cannot recommend them enough. We have received so many compliments on how 'fancy' everything was and how stunning the grounds were. We had absolutely no hiccups on our wedding day which was more than I could ever ask for from a venue.

Love Zukas Hiltop Farm. We have been luck enough to watch this facility grow over the years. A family run business is always a great thing to see. Pete and Lynn Zukas are the best! Every time we go back we see something new. From the breathtaking views to the quality of food and service. It is a favorite of ours and many a customer that have had a wedding at Zukas.
