About The Sablewood

The Sablewood is a fully renovated circa 1870 barn situated on over 120 acres in the northern Catskill Mountains. - Just 35 minutes to Albany and under 3 hours to NYC.

The venue features a stunning climate controlled post-and-beam barn, outdoor (or indoor) ceremony & cocktail locations, gorgeous custom lighting inside and out, high end wooden farm tables and chairs and a staff to do all the setup & cleanup. Weddings are a relaxed full day experience starting in the bright & airy preparation suites with full mountain views. The barn & grounds delight visitors with flowers and natural landscaping flowing around the barn & grounds.

Facilities and Capacity
The Sablewood can comfortably accommodate events of all sizes from 20 to 250 guests.

There are great indoor options in case of inclement weather so your day will be unforgettable and guests will be comfortable regardless of weather. The Sablewood is named for its sable (black) exterior, which gives way to another world when stepping into the bright sun drenched interior. Inside couples can share their first dance under the 12-foot wide, 1920s chandelier with all custom lighting throughout.

    We knew from the moment we arrived that this was our place!
    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!
