September 2019 Wedding - Lareau Farm Inn is a Dream Venue
Just as the reviewer before me said, I wish I could give more than five stars. The venue itself is beautiful, this goes without saying, but it is the staff that truly make it special. Helen is without a doubt one of the best wedding coordinators in the business. She is kind, genuine, attentive and hard-working. It poured all morning on our wedding day but she helped me to feel relaxed and confident in knowing that we had a plan. In the end, the flexibility of the staff allowed us to have the ceremony outdoors once the weather cleared up. I am so grateful for this. You'll find Helen setting tables early in the morning, checking in with your friends, family and vendors throughout the day and even in the kitchen making appetizers. She does it all!Sent on 10/15/2019
We opted to have all of our closest friends stay at the Inn with us for the weekend, upon Helen's suggestion, which worked perfectly. The breakfast each morning was made to order and was absolutely delicious. After the reception, we were able to keep the party going around the fire pit, making s'mores and soaking in the last moments of the best day ever. I can't say enough good things above the comfort of the Inn and the ability of the space and staff to truly make it feel like home.
We had the flatbread dinner option, which our guests loved. We did this to save on costs to have the Grippo Funk Band as our music for the evening. We got many comments that the delicious, laid-back nature of the meal allowed people to stay up and socializing without much delay to begin dancing the night away.
Lareau Farm Inn is a dream wedding venue. It's hard to find a better venue in the area that will truly bring you into their home and make you feel like family, while executing a top-notch event.

Amazing location, staff and food!
If you're considering having your Vermont wedding someplace other than at Lareau Farm Inn - don't. Helen and the staff at Lareau Farm are responsive, helpful and wonderfully kind. We changed the size of our wedding several times during our 18 month engagement, had to bring in a tent to accommodate additional guests etc. -Helen was always so quick to help us readjust our numbers, guide us through the process, and answer every single one of our questions. We also wanted to have our favorite home state foods as part of our late night menu, and they happily accommodated our request. We were looking for a place to showcase our home state of Vermont as 90% of our wedding guests would be traveling to the area for our wedding. They were completely blown away by the beautiful atmosphere, AMAZING food and perfect hospitality (our guests are still raving about the food!). I would choose to have our wedding at Lareau Farm Inn a million times over. Thank you to Helen and the staff at Lareau Farm Inn for helping us to execute with the most perfect day.Sent on 09/05/2019

Perfect Spot for a Vermont Wedding
We were married at Lareau Farm this past September and we can't say enough wonderful things about our experience! The setting is beautiful, the staff was amazing and we loved the flathbread served at the reception. We were looking for a place to have our wedding that would be laid back and stress free and would be a great place for our friends and family to spend a weekend away. We made a great choice! Helen was very responsive to the many questions that we had throughout the planning process. The entire process was stress free and came out exactly the way that we were hoping. The entire staff made us feel completely at home the entire week. We loved everything about Lareau Farm and couldn't be happier that we chose to have our wedding there!Sent on 11/06/2018
