    A Dream Come True

    The Barn at Smugglers' Notch was truly a dream come true. The breathtaking views, the stunning venue, the unparalleled professionalism, the on-site caterer, the on-site bar service - The Barn has it all. Throughout the entire planning process we were greeted by flexibility, knowledgeability, and kindness. The day-of coordination made everything run smoothly and helped ease my stressed mind from the moment we walked on to the property for our rehearsal the day before. We have had countless guests tell us it was the best wedding ever, and all the credit for that goes to The Barn!
