If you envision your guests sipping mint juleps in the romantic gardens while awaiting your wedding ceremony this Victorian mansion will fulfill your dreams. Nestled in a quaint Vermont town with the ability to host your wedding either indoors or out, this property features the cuisine of one of the most outstanding chefs we have come across in our work with unique New England wedding venues. Your Vermont destination wedding will be the wedding that you, your family and guests will remember for a lifetime.
Couples planning a smaller wedding of perhaps 20-40 guests or so are often faced with the challenge of finding that perfect venue that provides all of the elegance and service of a larger reception location but without the strict minimums imposed for weddings of under 100.
This gorgeous property located in Lenox, the charming heart of the Berkshires provides both indoor and outdoor options. Intimate ceremonies and dinners of 40 can be accommodated inside while larger weddings can take place during the summer and fall by tenting on the stunning grounds. A huge porch is the perfect space for cocktail hour and lounging during quieter times and there are plenty of recreational opportunities in the area. All of the guest rooms are suites and provide you and your family and guests with the perfect accommodations for your wedding weekend.

I am relishing the winter splendor from my recent trip to New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. Scouting unique wedding locations is always a joy. We live in such a diverse region with lakes, mountains and the ocean and the four seasons to enjoy it all. Hosting your New England wedding is wonderful in any season and with the snow outside and the coziness of a fire inside, a winter wedding in this New England Inn is sure to be remembered for years to come.
My journey to this historic New England Inn was scheduled to coincide with the Innkeeper’s last public dinner before the end of the season. I wanted to make sure that I tasted the food in order to recommend this lovely property to clients looking for a unique venue for a small intimate wedding.
Autumn evenings in New England should be like this: great company, a warm fire and a dining experience that includes lots of murmurs of “ahhhhhs” Relaxation..bliss.. Starting with the wine and on to the first course - A harvest bisque golden and delicious. Our Roasted Beet and Celeriac Salad proved that when it comes to fresh ingredients, less is better. The flavors of both were just perfect and my anticipation of the third course was increasing! We both had the Rib-eye with a Merlot-Morel Reduction-succulent! The beef was very tender and moist and I decided that I was in heaven. The Chef and owner of this property knows her stuff-classically trained in restaurants and hotels in the DC area, she offers her guests a unique dining experience. A feeling of European sensibility-food is meant to enjoy and savor …slow. And during our fourth course of a lovely selection of cheeses, that is what we did. We both ordered a port-definately a necessary accompaniment in my mind. No bread, crackers…just little bites of cheese and sips of port. “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh”. I ordered the Gingered Almond, Fig and Cranberry Semifreddo for dessert. A combination of ice cream and whipped cream in my mind, with the spicy tastes of the dried fruit. With just enough room for coffee, we left wishing we had reserved one of the inn’s six guest rooms. We know we will return though. The Innkeeper provides that special experience that you want to re-visit again and again. For those couples looking for a venue for an intimate wedding in a New England Inn, this is it.
I was attending a tour where a couple are planning their winter wedding in the barn of a historic New England inn. I was fortunate to have such a great time taking pictures prior to last evening’s wedding reception -Sunflowers and color yellow was everywhere and the evening light cast a wonderful sunset glow on the placesettings. The bride arrived in a yellow VW beetle and was stunning as was the groom. Whether it be spring, summer, winter or fall, this venue is perfect for small intimate weddings or larger affairs. With working fireplaces throughout, their winter wedding is sure to be a beautiful elegant affair.
