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 or Boston.

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.

    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.

    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!
