The construction of this 1915 gambrel bank barn into the adjacent hill made it possible to load the upper half of the barn with loose hay to feed 40 dairy cows through a long winter. The hay storage levels that include the 3rd floor "hay mow" and the 4th level "high drive" are used for beautiful and memorable events hosting up to 162 guests. A grassy road behind the barn provides access to the high drive and a large open meadow for a beautiful ceremony site, lawn games, cocktail hour, and bonfire. splendid ceremonies have been held inside on the soaring high drive as well. The deck adjacent to the enchantingly weathered White Barn is another favorite location for lovely outdoor ceremonies. The property is yours to enjoy for the weekend and you are welcome to customize the spaces and to use your choice of caterer.
