Facilities and Capacity

This scenic country venue offers quiet seclusion and natural surroundings while also being conveniently located among rolling hills in central Massachusetts. The scenery makes a stunning backdrop for a joyful wedding and vivid photography. In this venue’s peak season, from May through October, an elegant 1,400-square-foot tension tent stretches over the patio and hosts up to 250 guests. Soft light emanates from the tent ceiling onto a patterned black-and-white dance floor. Guests can sit on black wooden Chiavari chairs at round tables laden with fine china, flatware, stemware, and linens. Side enclosures and gas heaters are at the ready in case the weather proves to be inclement. Winter and Spring weddings, from November to April, can be held in the ample banquet room for up to 150 guests. Visitors will enjoy a warm welcome from experienced staff, a generous fieldstone fireplace, and oaken bar and chairs. A luxurious suite offers a get-ready space for your wedding party and overnight accommodation for the happy couple along with full on-site spa. A compact receiving space is conveniently located near the front foyer for additional preparation. All areas of the venue are wheelchair-accessible aside from the suite and spa. Parking is available on-site for the convenience of guests.

Services Offered

The team of professionals at Zukas Hilltop Barn will cover all of your catering and bar requirements, in addition to careful planning, setup, and cleanup of your event. To best safeguard the venue for future years, decoration must be done with care. Event rentals are available, including votive candles and mirrored centerpieces.

Cuisine

All cuisine is prepared on-site with the guiding principle of sourcing foodstuffs locally, with the farm itself providing herbs, berries, and vegetables. For your wedding feast, you can enjoy a champagne toast - or fountain - follower by plated dinners or hors d’oeuvres in stations and passed butler-style. Certified Angus beef is one option among many for your courses, followed by a variety of dessert options. In-house bartending offers domestic and imported beers, house wine, premium mixed drinks, top shelf drinks, as well as sodas and juices.

    So flexible and supportive

    Although we did not end up having our reception at Zukas, Alyson & Lynn were so supportive and understanding during this crazy time. With the situation changing in MA only 10 days before our wedding we had to make a quick decision on what to do to be able to have all the people we wanted there. Zukas could not have been more understanding and we wish them the very best!

    Absolutely Perfect!!

    The moment we walked into the reception hall of Zukas Hilltop Barn, my now-husband and I knew this was where we wanted to get married. And we definitely made the right choice! Besides being absolutely gorgeous, Zukas as a venue includes food, drinks, linens, decor setup, and the assistance of their amazing event coordinator, Alyson. For an extremely reasonable price you can also book their bridal suite for the night of the wedding, and hair and makeup services for the wedding day. This made planning the wedding so much easier! Alyson the coordinator is beyond attentive, helpful, and organized. The day went completely smoothly--our ceremony actually started exactly on time, and all the details were perfectly arranged and setup by the time I walked in. Not to mention--the entrees and desserts are phenomenal. Not only was the wedding cake the best cake I have ever tasted, several guests said it was the best wedding food they've ever had! The chocolate fountain and mini ice cream cones were also a huge hit! And they made sure I actually got to eat all of the food I wanted to as the bride. The bridal suite at the venue was just beautiful, and they even included a complimentary breakfast basket for the morning after the wedding that included two extra slices of our wedding cake. I had the best day of my life here, and I couldn't recommend it more enthusiastically.

Love Zukas Hiltop Farm. We have been luck enough to watch this facility grow over the years. A family run business is always a great thing to see. Pete and Lynn Zukas are the best! Every time we go back we see something new. From the breathtaking views to the quality of food and service. It is a favorite of ours and many a customer that have had a wedding at Zukas.
