Located in Harpersfield, New York, The Garden Path Barn is a rustic wedding venue. Nestled in the Catskills, this setting offers a picturesque location for ceremonies and receptions. Here, quaint paths wind through the gardens for a fairytale-worthy venue for your milestone day. This property combines its owners' styles, blending Eileen's gardens with Dusty's vision of a barn.

Facilities and Capacity

The Garden Path Barn is a post and beam-type structure, made with shiplap sliding and hemlock beams. Made of yellow pine, it has been carefully treated to preserve the authentic rustic appearance of the wood. Inside, the barn is illuminated by a cupola to fill the space with natural light. An adjoining covered porch, with views of the gardens and woods, offers a space for outside seating and is available for cocktail hours. Inside the barn, couples will find a get-ready suite with a balcony that overlooks the barn interior. The suite includes a private dressing room and living area, so the to-be-weds can spend some time with their nearest and dearest in private.

Services Offered

The Garden Path Barn offers an all-inclusive package to streamline the planning process for to-be-weds. The package includes access to the site for an entire weekend, including time for a rehearsal dinner. The grounds also feature a full-service warming kitchen for caterers to use. Tables and chairs are provided for up to 150 attendees. There is also a mobile wooden bar stand available for celebratory toasts. Decorative lighting is provided for both indoors and outdoors. Couples are invited to browse Eileen and Dusy's stock of decorations and use whichever ones catch their eye.

    The garden path barn is truly a dream and the owners Dusty and Eileen are the absolute nicest people! They were very accommodating and available for whatever we needed from the time we booked our wedding to the rehearsal to the wedding day and the day after the wedding! The gardens are stunning and I cannot wait to see what amazing pictures we got! I would definitely recommend this venue for anyone getting married or if you need a venue for any special occasion!

    The Garden Path was truly my dream wedding venue. The newly built barn is absolutely gorgeous and it is easily seen in all the detail how much work that Dusty and Eileen have put into it. It sets the mood for a wonderful rustic and classy wedding. The gardens surrounding the venue are absolutely breathtaking and nearly take care of any decorating that would need to be done with just their presence. As for the owners, Dusty & Eileen King are amazing people to work with! They are so flexible and responsive to everything that we have needed in our wedding planning ventures thus far! We are so excited to have our wedding at this venue! Dreams really do come true at this venue if you're looking for a beautiful barn wedding!!! I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a rustic themed wedding! Nevertheless it will get you the most beautiful barn in the Catskill mountains with an incredibly reasonable price tag!

Managers

Victor and Jonna recently moved back from AZ to raise their daughter Cora in the same green countryside that they grew up in as well as help run The Garden Path Barn with Jonna's parents, Dusty and Eileen ('Everybody Loves Raymond' anyone? Just kidding, but it is awesome to literally "walk through the woods to Grandmother's house we go!").

Vic's experience as a Golf Professional hosting high class tournaments at various prestigious courses gives him the expertise in event handling and care. And he can show you a thing or two about how to fix your golf swing while you're here!

Jonna has been a Customer Service Manager in upscale Restaurants, Hotels, and the largest Plant Nursery in the US, giving her an edge in event planning and coordinating.

We will make sure that you have a fun and flawless event, just as we had for our own wedding here at The Garden Path Barn.
