    Dream wedding at dream venue

    My husband and I could not have asked for a better experience getting married at Hill Farm Inn. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about our wedding weekend there. The property is stunning and there are so many different scenic spots to choose from for the wedding events. We had a guest list of about 80 in July, so chose to set up our ceremony outside, followed by the cocktail hour on the porch/inside the Main Inn and dinner/dancing in the reception barn. Kate and Christina were such a pleasure to work with and so organized. I am a planner by nature and it takes a lot of carelessly pass on responsibilities, but I felt so comfortable with the HFI team. They went out of their way to help and did it with such care and attention to detail. In addition to the wedding day, we hosted other events at HFI including our farewell brunch on Sunday. The grounds, accommodations and food are all amazing. Additionally about half of our guests stayed onsite and were so pleased with their experience. This was our dream wedding weekend and venue, and I can't imagine having hosted it anywhere other than Hill Farm Inn! Our guests keep telling us it is the most beautiful wedding they have been to.

    We loved having our wedding here! It is a classic and tasteful venue that was just the right size for our 40 person wedding. Almost everyone stayed on-site and they all commented on how beautiful, comfortable and perfect the Hill Farm Inn is.

    Our wedding was in August 2018, so we worked with Kate and Christina throughout most of the planning process. I found it best to get in touch with them via email because they have limited staff and didn't always catch our phone calls. Email communication was great though and the entire wedding weekend was smooth and stress free. They provided excellent recommendations for vendors (food, flowers, photography), catered lunches and wedding favors, which helped make the whole planning process (and day-of) a breeze :)

    Can't wait to go back and visit in the future for a weekend getaway!

    **If you're considering the Hill Farm:
    -Their event barn doesn't have a kitchen, so we rented kitchen equipment for our caterer to use. Alternatively, you could hire a caterer that prepares food off-site. Rental equipment cost us about $3700 total, which included everything from tents, stove and grill to dinnerware, linens, silverware, drink pitchers, hightop tables, etc.)
    -We were required (and happy) to rent the entire Inn for the weekend in order to use the barn as our reception venue. This is exactly what we wanted, but just know you'll have to fill all of the rooms--which are beautiful, modern and spacious.
    -Rain or shine, this place has plenty of covered and uncovered options for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
    -Fully-stocked bar and lots of space to congregate. Most of our guests stayed up late drinking wine, catching up with each other, and relaxing in the hot tub.
    -If you're planning a summer wedding, mosquitos will be an unavoidable evil. The Inn is situated next to conservation land and has farm animals (sheep, alpacas, and a cat), so they weren't comfortable with mosquito spraying.

    I had my wedding here in June 2017 and I couldn't recommend Hill Farm Inn enough. I rented out the entire location so both my family and wedding party could stay in the same place. From the moment we booked Hill Farm Inn, I could tell the staff cared and wanted to make sure every detail was taken care of down to the last request.
    Thanks to the stunning location and views, I had some of the most beautiful images of all time (see photos!). The amazing, wonderful, kind staff were the best and they helped to make sure all the guests had the best experience and their needs were taken care of - Kim is a true gem and went above and beyond in helping me make my stay and wedding day perfect. We booked our rehearsal dinner there and had one of the best meals made by their resident chef and innkeeper, Mariah - she made sure to work with me beforehand to ensure the menu was perfect. My guest and I stayed full and happy all weekend long thanks to the breakfasts (do not leave without eating her granola!!!).
    The entire property is newly renovated and is decorated with class and style- they did a great job capturing the Vermont vibe. They even recently installed a pool and hot tub which was put to use quickly when we arrived. We held our ceremony under a beautiful tree and moved the cocktail hour to the giant wrap around porch before moving into the new event barn for dinner and dancing (again, see photos).
    Thank you to the Hill Farm Inn team for making my wedding weekend absolutely amazing. We will be back again soon!
