The original barn was the most modern styling for its day but was destroyed by a fire. The barn was rebuilt with hand-hewn wooden beams and existing flagstone. The new barn survived 100 years of change and is now owned by the Foster family.

    We (and everyone) loved it!

    A classy place tucked in farmland. Don't let the silo fool you. The event space was recently remodeled, with outstanding food from the attached restaurant. Works for both ceremony and reception, they turn it around seamlessly. Plus room for a live band! Speaker system can even play music from your phone with great quality (we used that for the ceremony music). Jenna, the coordinator, is a rockstar. She can answer any question, or find the answer quickly. Worked with us to make our ideas a reality. She will be an advocate to make your day the best it can be. So many compliments from our guests who had no idea about this hidden gem in Waterford!
