History

Settles Hill Banquets & Events originally began life as The Tree Farm Restaurant in 1991, owned by Jock Farnsworth. Carver Laraway purchased the property, inclusive of 465 acres, in 2005 after Jock's passing. The DePasquale family took over operation of the facilities in 2008 and has been continuing to improve the property ever since. Some of these improvements include a pergola, a wraparound porch, and renovated event spaces.

    Absolutely Beautiful Location!!

    The location is beautiful! So many spots for beautiful photos through out the day! Erin, Sal, Denise and the rest of the staff was amazing! Our guest were raving about the food and how amazing it was! I was able to see the reception room transform during the day, and the staff did an amazing job setting everything up and making our wedding dreams coming true! We couldn't be happier with how things turned out! We highly recommend Settles Hill to anyone and everyone!!
