Hi there!  Congrats on your engagement!

You should check out Quonquont Farm in Whately, MA.  It’s way out there in Western, Mass and I’m not sure how far you want to go for your wedding, but this is our venue- exactly what we were looking for- a rustic barn– it’s gorgeous!

@GB55:  If you’re up for a rustic Vermont Wedding you should def check out our venue. We picked it because it is close to a major international airport for people flying in, the price, and because we wanted to get married in Vermont. 

It’s called the Old Lantern and it’s just south of Burlington Vermont in a town called Charlotte. It’s very reasonably priced and includes all tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces, and wedding cake. The price is only $3900 for the rental fee and you have it all day. They also have very reasonable food options starting at $25/pp. I’ve already gone for my tasting and the food is delicious. 

Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions!

I live in New Husband on the VT border and have might have a  couple ideas. In VT try the Lake Morey resort SO lives a couple miles from there and it is pretty and not super expensive but nice. Mt. Ascutney resort in Ascutney vt might be an option but winter is their busy season so it might be expensive. I am trying to do a summer wedding on the cheap in NH/VT. PM me if you have any questions about places in New Husband or VT that I might be able to help with and I will try to think of other venues.

Also look into Sleepy Hollow Inn.  You bring in your own caterer and bartender (which must be licensed).

My brother and sister-in-law got married about 2 years ago at The Mountain Top Inn.  It was GORGEOUS!!! They were the final party before the winter season hit.  They got married on Dec 19th.  It was so super pretty.  Outdoor heated tent, sledding in the middle of the reception out back, married inside the B&B, romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage after the ceremony.  I just checked out their website and it looks like they are actually opening a barn Jan 2013.  Might be just what you are looking for!

By the way, I would add that we found winter weddings in VT to be much more expensive than summer.  If you are open to a spring/summer/fall wedding definitely look into Pigeon Hill Farm (see my reviews on another post).  You’ll be able to keep it under $10,000 with them.

Check out mountain meadows lodge in killington Vermont. I’m not sure how much they charge, but the location is beautiful! Mountain top in is nice too, but they can be pricey. I checked into there a couple of years ago and for 150 people it would be $11,000. They might have different packages though.

I don’t have any specific recommendations, but I just wanted to suggest that if you are open to the rest of NE, you might find better rates on the coast where it isn’t their high  season.  Or at least away from the mountains.  Travel would be farther though.  Good luck!

  • Wedding: December 2012

Hi Gabrielle!

Check out Hotel Coolidge in White River Junction – we’re using them for our December wedding for the reception and guest rooms. It’s a lovely old building, well kept, and they recently did some renovations. The guest rooms vary from single rooms to full suites – they have a suite that we are using as a bridal suite. It’s a vintage railroad hotel and it’s got a country comfort feel to it. Everyone we’ve talked to has been very friendly so far!

They have two adjoining rooms that would be more than adequate to accomodate 150 people and their price is very reasonable and within your price range. One room has a beautiful hardwood dance floor – it’s gorgeous. They have an in-house caterer. We were able to provide them with our own menu (!!! this was awesome!!!) and he quoted us at $46pp – this included hot hors d’oeuvres, beverages, a cash bar, etc. Totally reasonable!

David Briggs, the owner, is very easy to work with and is a great communicator. He responds to emails right away from our experience! Like you, we had a very low budget and he was totally willing to work with us to fit within this budget. Their website doesn’t have many pictures, but I snapped a bunch the last time we were there so if you’re interested in looking at pictures, let me know! I’ll send you the link to my photo album. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you have any other questions about the Hotel Coolidge, let me know!!!

@GB55:  Have you thought about getting legally married right away and then holding the ceremony later?  Still suggesting Pigeon Hill because it’s about 20 minutes from the border.  ๐Ÿ™‚

@GB55:  Yep, Sleepy Hollow is expensive too.  Just slightly less so than the other winter barn venues.  We looked around for barn venues in winter too and didn’t have much luck.
