Everything about this place is impressive. The house is gorgeous, spacious, and comfortable. The barn is beautiful, and a great spot to party! It's also located nearby the picturesque town of Benson and the Wheel Inn Restaurant. The Stannard family are some of the friendliest around, and their level of hospitality is second to none!Sent on 09/06/2018

We had such a wonderful time at this wedding reception. Everything about it was magical -- from the decorations, to the food, to the easy flow of the evening, all was in perfect harmony. I would definitely recommend this venue for a private party or wedding reception.Sent on 04/16/2019

An authentically beautiful barn venue!
Although we are going to have our wedding on August 3, 2019, at Kingston Place, I wanted to write a review of my initial experience with this beautiful farm venue. During our tour, we were blown away by the authentic Vermont beauty surrounding the wedding barn in the quintessential town of Benson, Vermont. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of atmosphere, scenery and overall architectural beauty. When we walked into the barn, we couldn't believe how spacious it was. The layout of this particular barn provides perfect flow for a decent size wedding... something we didn't think other barns offered when we were touring. On our wedding day, we will have use of the house right next to the barn for 3 days which we are very excited about. The house can accommodate our wedding parties, and there is a guest house right down the road if we should need more space (for rent by a local family). We will have full use of the living room/dining room to hold an after-party once the main venue winds down so we were can keep the party going both nights! The rooms upstairs are spacious and comfortable. And, most importantly, there is a fire pit in the incredible backyard, perfect for our summer wedding. Abigale and the rest of the Stannard Family (shoutout to Bob and Sam) have been incredibly helpful in answering any questions we might have. More importantly, this family is flexible and wants to work with you to ensure that your day is everything you want it to be. So many venues set specific guidelines and high prices, I found this venue to be the most flexible, understanding the different visions of the bride and groom. They are genuinely one of the nicest Vermont families I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We are so excited for our wedding this summer, and we will update this review once we are married!Read LessSent on 12/06/2018
