Just an hour outside of Boston, rests an antique yellow barn perfect for events for up to 125 guests. Adorned with a peace sign, an homage to the owner’s California roots and spirit, the barn offers an open concept layout perfect for customization. Home to a small family-run flower farm, this 7-acre property boasts some of the prettiest gardens in the area. From peonies to dahlias, seasonal flowers surround the barn and make for a naturally beautiful backdrop to your special day.
