My fiancé and I have our hearts set on getting married in a barn. We love that Highview Springs not only has a unbelievable historic barn but also has absolutely beautiful views. We may have to schedule extra time with our photographer there are so many beautiful photo areas! The owners made us feel at home and we are so happy to have found this place.Sent on 03/21/2018

We knew from the moment we arrived that this was our place!Sent on 03/18/2018
Despite still being a work in progress the barn is amazing! It feels like you stepped back in time with huge beams and crazy high ceilings.
The work Lisa and her family are doing is so beautiful with so much attention to detail. We can’t wait to see it fully completed this summer and be one of the first weddings in the barn!

In the most simplest of terms, the farm and surrounding property are magnificent. Set on a bucolic piece of land with picturesque views from every angle and undulating hills, the venue makes for a truly beautiful and unique setting for any occasion at any time of the year. Great care is taken to maintain the natural beauty of the farm that once acted as a stable for Morgan horses. The barn has undergone incredible and meticulous reconstruction making it a showstopper of a site. Highview Springs Farm offered my husband and I the most naturally beautiful venue to celebrate our marriage in the Schoharie Valley. We chose to have our reception outdoors in early August, set around the stunning scenery of the Farm. Lisa was a tremendous help in offering flexibility, it felt like we had her full support and creative rights for the day. From lawn games to a surrey with the fringe on top, this venue really had it all for us. There was no problem including our dog, Rusty in the festivities either. Similar settings in the Boston area where we lived at the time, were not affordable and too restrictive. This location offered a respite from the buzz of the city for our out of town guests at an affordable rate for us. Mazzone Catering did an amazing job with the menu, service and presentation. If you're lucky enough to get her, I highly recommend Tracey Buyce Photography out of Saratoga. She has an incredible eye for detail, is very horse/dog savvy and made us feel at ease during the one on one shots. All in all, we had a fabulous experience from the very beginning of planning until the last guest left. The only problem was, we didn't want the night to end!Sent on 01/15/2018
The Sablewood's reply:Thank you so much Alyssa! We loved having your beautiful wedding here and Rusty is the most photogenic dog! :)
