Just minutes from Middlebury, Vermont, Adirondack Ridge Farm captures the essence of Vermont in one space. The working farm venue enjoys spectacular vistas of the Adirondack Mountains, pastures grazed by black angus, and two beautiful red barns. Large fields give couples options for outdoor tented receptions where guests can dance under the Vermont stars. The venue also includes a gorgeous barn for smaller parties, so for couples looking to have a more intimate wedding with 100 guests, the reception could be set completely indoors. For larger weddings, the barn makes a perfect place for cocktail stations, dance floors, and buffets.
Looking for a full weekend stay? Rent the 1798 restored farm house, which includes 4 bedrooms and a charming antique-filled interior with gourmet kitchen. After gathering together in the common spaces of the house, guests can enjoy the privacy of their bedrooms, each with its own private bath. Finally, you can explore the great outdoors of Vermont on some of the nearby hiking trails or spend time putting the personal touches on the venue to really make it yours before guests arrive.
Ripe with ceremony options, say your vows on the stone patio of the 18th century farmhouse, under a nearby arbor or on the manicured lawn facing the distant mountains. No matter where you choose, this venue offers guests stunning views while they listen to music, wander the property to see the farm or sip their cocktails in one of the many Adirondack chairs with mountain views.
