We have at least four ceremony sites which can be custom groomed for your event:

The Front Meadow- This small field is beautifully situated and conveniently located to the north of the house. It is the meadow which is most visible from our Lake View Suite.
It was kept as a lawn for many years and is still fairly smooth to walk across. It's permanently fenced in white hotcote and livestock can be relocated and the entire paddock mowed and groomed 5-10 days in advance of your event.

 

The Lakeside Meadow - This small , private meadow has a panoramic view of Lake Champlain while still convenient to the house. The access is along our rustic, shady trail to the waterfront. The trail opens up to a majestic plateau high above the lake with lovely views to behold from several locations.
It was neglected for years and is still quite rough (with small stumps and roots) but we have kept a ceremony site and walking trail well-cleared and mowed for two years. It's permanently fenced in white hotcote and livestock can be relocated and the entire paddock mowed and groomed 5-10 days in advance of your event.

 

The Pasture - This huge pasture has several nice, flat sites with views of Lake Champlain with our majestic old barn in the foreground. It is also convenient to the house with access from the wrap-around porch, past the vegetable garden, and through our equipment yard (where additional vehicles can be parked). A mown path and custom ceremony site can be created according to your specifications.
It's permanently fenced in white hotcote and livestock can be relocated and the trail and ceremony site cleaned, mowed, and groomed 5-10 days in advance of your event.

 

The Hay Meadows - This site overlooks our vast, grassy hay meadows with our historic barn, Lake Champlain, and the Green Mountains in the distance. It is quite a hike from the house and is ideal for bringing the wedding party up on a hayride. A mown path and custom ceremony site can be created according to your specifications.

We hope you'll schedule a stay at our inn to experience and explore these choices and others in-person!
