This is a beautiful venue with natural beauty located on farmland with tremendous views and lovely landscaping. Our event was held in the front barn where the food was located and included a barbeque, as well as a meeting of the board in the house. The fields are mowed for hay by a local farmer and added to the ambiance, as did the flowers around the house and the back barn. I would recommend this as a gorgeous spot for a wonderful Vermont wedding!! And Lyn did a terrific job of organizing all the moving parts!Sent on 08/07/2018

When decisions need to be made Lyn DesMarais has a resource of wonderful friends that work as a team. There is a local tent company, portable outhouses and the location...Breath Taking! My favorite view from the pond to the small cabin tucked down a lovely path/meadow. Did a mention Lyn is also a "green thumb" and Jim her Husband are a wonderful team.Sent on 08/07/2018
