It's been less than 3 weeks since our wedding at the Skinner Barn. It was incredible! The barn and property is absolutely stunning and was exactly what we were looking for in a venue. We are local to VT and were searching for a beautiful barn to house our outdoor ceremony, and cocktail hour and indoor festivities/reception. This had it all and we had incredible support from the whole team that we worked with,

The owner's efforts, attention to detail and communication were respectful, joyful, and prompt. We worked with Peter from our tour through the wedding, as he answered questions and provided expertise as we looked to him for how things have worked in the past at the barn. His interest in celebrating love and hosting weddings is so genuine. The Barn's work with the vendors they contract was superb - they have chosen the cream of the crop and that made our experience all the more delightful and smooth as they had established relationships many weddings ago.

We had our wedding at the Skinner Barn at the end of September, and I really could not have asked for a better venue. The barn & grounds are gorgeous (very quintessential Vermont), and Peter is really great to work with. He's put together a wonderful team that will make your day run smoothly and beautifully. It was exactly what we were looking for and we'd highly recommend it!

The Skinner Barn was a stunning place to get married! The owner, Peter was incredibly helpful (recommending local vendors, allowing us to stop by multiple times to show the barn off to our parents). He even kept the barn open for an extra weekend this fall when we had to change out wedding date! He was also there the day of to make sure everything was running smoothly. Two thumbs up!
