Our home and barn are located on thirty five acres of fields and forest along Derby Pond. In 2008 we decided to save a vintage barn in Irasburg, Vt from its’ date with a saw mill. We moved it to our home in Derby and started the restoration. We were not sure how we would use the barn, but we knew that our location provided a perfect setting. We began hosting weddings in 2012 at the request of friends and community members who shared our love and appreciation for this unique property. We believe the barn typifies the spirit of the Northeast Kingdom: natural, unpretentious, and beautiful.
Our private lake front property is the perfect location for your wedding ceremony. With the serenity of our secluded water front arch, the wedding will be unlike any other.
For weddings, a fully furnished bride’s dressing room with balcony overlooking the barn is included.
The barn accommodates 175 guests. For larger events the addition of a tent is a simple solution for more people. There is ample on site parking for one hundred vehicles. The two story / loft configuration is highly versatile. The lower level is easily set up for dining and dancing. The upper level is staged with appropriate antiques for authenticity and a custom designed bar. It offers a classic “barn atmosphere” for dancing, music, photo opportunities, and mingling.
Our property offers a romantic setting of green space with gardens and orchards. You will find the pastoral setting the perfect back drop for your special day. There is plenty of space for outdoor games, and walking paths to enjoy the scenery.
The spectacular scenery on our property is unlike any other wedding venue in Vermont. We are located next to both a lake and wetlands. You will likely see a diversity of unique wildlife, including many birds. You may be blessed to see a Heron, Wild Geese, Ducks, or other water fowl.
