Romantic Setting for your Vermont Dream Wedding
We offer a classic Vermont farmhouse in an idyllic setting. Nestled along the Mad River, a stone’s throw from downtown Waitsfield, we delight in offering a rustic-romantic setting for events from casual to elegant and everything in between. Declare your vows under the open sky in our expansive meadows. Celebrate your special day with family and friends in our rustic barn pavilion. Dine on artisan flatbreads served from a roaring outdoor woodfired oven. Spend your wedding weekend with your loved ones in our charming country Inn. Mountain bike trails, hiking and swimming are only steps away!
We offer multiple options for your ceremony on-site. A grassy path winds along the forest’s edge to an open field where a sugar maple arbor awaits your vows. Or celebrate your union from the Inn’s romantic back porch. Or marry beneath the trees with the picturesque Mad River as your backdrop.
A Reception in the Pavilion Barn
After your ceremony, celebrate with family and friends in our pavilion barn, which can accommodate parties up to 200. Additional tents may be ordered to accommodate larger number of guests. The pavilion has a small bandstand, simple sound-system with USB hook-up, twinkling fairy lights, and comfortable bathrooms with hot/cold running water. For unfair weather, our pavilion also has clear tent sides, which may be lowered, and eight patio heaters to keep you and your guests warm.
Newly Renovated Centuries Old Barn
We also have a recently renovated centuries-old barn on the property, which will be available in 2017 for smaller parties. Built in the late eighteenth century, the barn has been carefully and lovingly restored by a historic preservation team. The barn can accommodate 30-60 guests. Photos coming soon!
Wow your guests with all-natural flatbread baked in a primitive earthen wood-fired oven. We offer fresh, local, farm-to-table cuisine that meets all guests’ needs. Let’s design a menu that’s right for you!
The Inn: Our large, sunny, and airy dining room can accommodate 40-50 guests, decorated with antique dining tables, stained glass lamps, and oriental rugs. A perfect space for an intimate rehearsal dinner or a bon voyage brunch for you and your family. Through the French doors, our porch, with views of the meadows and mountains, offers seating for sixteen guests and may be used in conjunction with the dining room and outdoor garden.
Note: For Saturday events, we ask that you have family and friends fill the Inn for your celebration weekend (2 night minimum) creating an intimate and private gathering of loved ones. Reminder: Stay three nights and the fourth night is free!
Our Mobile Oven
We will happily come to your location if you can’t make it to Lareau Farm. We offer a mobile oven that can be brought to your site for a small celebration, corporate picnic or wedding. Seasonal and local flatbreads with salad and desserts are available. It doesn’t get any better than wood-fired flatbread at your chosen event space!
