We offer standard one-day venue options but specialize in multi-day weddings where up to 36 guests stay can on-site within walking distance of the venue and reception areas! We offer both indoor and outdoor spaces for the ceremonies and receptions, options for rehearsal dinners, on-site catering and a list of preferred vendors to make your day perfect yet manageable!
Stepping Stones Farm & Event Center is a special place to gather in a beautiful, rustic setting where you enjoy privacy and convenience! Located less than 90 minutes from Boston and 45 minutes from Manchester, this historic farm and former stagecoach stop has brought people together since the 1800s and brings local charm with welcoming amenities. We specialize in weddings under 100 guests but can accomodate up to 250!
Stepping Stones Farm lies within over twenty acres of rolling pastures surrounded by hundreds of acres of pristine conservation and preserved woodland, offering ties to the land and a private, exclusive experience. Our property includes three primary areas, all of which are easily walkable to each other, have on-site parking and are ADA accessible :
--The Barn (primarily used for receptions and rain backup)
--The Lodge (large log cabin that sleeps up to 24 of your closest friends and family)
--The Homestead (a classic 6-bedroom New England farmhouse, sleeps 14)
Below are descriptions of the Barn, The Lodge and The Homestead features:
Many couples are taken with our massive Colonial-era Barn, one of the largest and most unique of it's kind. The Barn beacons guests to celebrate in a large, spectacular event space complete with bistro lighting and a dance floor. The Barn also offers a bride and groom suite, catering rooms and outdoor bathroom facilities!
Cabin charms await in The Lodge, a towering hand-hewn log cabin which features a large gathering room with cathedral ceilings, wrought iron chandeliers, and fieldstone fireplace. It accommodates up to 24 guests with ten separate bedrooms (including a couple's suite), has a full kitchen and dining room, front and back porches, outdoor fire circle, game room, yoga studio and therapeutic massage room.

The Founder's Barn is a large indoor space measuring 72’ by 200’ encouraging large gatherings of all kinds. With easy access and ample parking, this spectacular space can be reimagined into an array of marriage or other celebrations. Professional decorations and full flight vendor services required, as well as day of planner.
At our farm, we strongly believe that Love is Love. All who come to our humble farm are treated with kindness, compassion and honest

That Perfect Wedding
Opting to have our wedding at Stepping Stones was the best decision we could have made. Not only was it so convenient with the beautiful outdoor spaces and stunning barn setup but the entire process was so seamless, allowing us to truly enjoy the day with all its majestic surroundings. All requests were handled professionally, with the warmth and love you would only expect to receive from family. We were blessed and utterly grateful we were able to be wed at Stepping Stones. If you are looking for a stress-free, charming and enchanting venue, this should be it.Sent on 12/13/2020

Great experience in a beautiful setting!
We had a small (around 50 person) wedding at this venue and it was beautiful! We got married in September and enjoyed the setting very much! The on-site lodging was especially helpful as we were able to sleep the wedding party at the Lodge! Would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful venue with a lot of privacy.Sent on 12/09/2020
