About

Up to 300 guests

Located on 700 pristine acres in Goshen, Kentucky Hermitage Farm is the premier wedding site in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, with beautiful rolling hills that provide a stunning backdrop for any wedding. Hermitage’s historic charm and natural beauty provide an elegant backdrop to events of any scale – from intimate dinner parties to grand outdoor celebrations. We offer a variety of venue options for an outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour and reception that center around the historic Main House at Hermitage Farm. We're also excited to introduce our first indoor venue, The Hayloft, that has just completed a stunning design transformation of one of the historic barns on Hermitage Farm.

We're very proud to have Barn8 (the onsite restaurant at Hermitage Farm) as our exclusive caterer. Chef Alison Settle and our culinary team will create a unique menu that features locally grown vegetables (most coming from the Hermitage Farm gardens) and pasture raised meats.

Hermitage Farm also offers a limited number of lodging quarters that couples and their guests can take advantage of. The Main House features five bedrooms that can sleep up to 18 people. Residing behind the Main House, the Smoke House is a charming loft space that can house up to four guests. These two accommodation options are ideal for couples and members of the wedding party. Furthermore, the rooms can be used as get-ready areas on the morning of the wedding in order to provide a convenient location for preparation.

History

Hermitage Farm has been a working equine farm since the early 1800s. It was originally purchased by Captain John Henshaw, who modeled the Main House after his family home in Virginia. In 1936, the estate was purchased by the Jones family, who brought fame to the farm when Warner Jones used the land to breed winners of the Breeders' Cup, Kentucky Derby, and Kentucky Oaks. Following a visit from Queen Elizabeth II, the farm was purchased by Carl Polland. Carl owned the land for 16 years before he sold the historic farm to current owners Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson (Founders of 21c Hotels).

    Timeless and Unforgettable Experience

    We got married on 9/21/2019 at Hermitage and had an amazing experience. The grounds are so stunning that only minimal decorations are needed for your own personal touch. We had the ceremony on the front steps with a musician playing music on the porch above and the setting was just perfect. If there are more than 5 people in your bridal party it may be difficult to all squeeze up on the porch but it makes for a great setting. The concrete pad that is poured out back makes it so there is no need to rent a dance floor. It was also a huge bonus that we had 6 rooms so we could have the bridal party stay at Hermitage and save on hotel rooms. Meredith was a pleasure to work with and I could tell she cared about us having a pleasant experience. Erika was also great to have and made sure everything went smooth for the house guests. Overall I would recommend Hermitage to anyone looking for a venue.

    We LOVED having our wedding weekend at Hermitage Farm. The house was gorgeous and well-kept throughout the weekend, and Ashleigh was always kind and easy to communicate with. It's definitely a pricey venue, but we were able to host all of our festivities there (from Rehearsal Dinner to getting ready day-of), which made it worth it. It was truly a dream to get married here!
