Historic Barns of Nipmoose
Outdoor Event Space
Perched on a knoll overlooking a stunning landscape of farmland, the Historic Barns of Nipmoose provide an idyllic setting for wedding receptions and ceremonies.
The fully restored Scottish Barn, German Barn and Corn Crib are superb examples of America’s rich agricultural heritage. The three barns (all included in a wedding event) can be used in a variety of different ways. Couples planning a wedding will be excited by the many options which are available.
The magnificent barns provide a rustic chic and charming context for celebrations whether elegant or casual, grand or intimate, or something in between. The expansive grounds surrounding the barns, with courtyard, pond and aspen grove, provide delightful opportunities for outdoor receptions and ceremonies. (We are proud of how meticulous we are in maintaining our grounds and buildings.)
Our site includes three charming bathrooms (one of which is handicap accessible), a spacious bridal suite, a large parking lot to accommodate cars and buses and a Workshop Barn for caterers.
There is a long, private driveway leading to the Nipmoose barns which provides an unobstructed view of hundreds of acres of farm fields. Located in the rustic hills of northern Hudson River Valley, NY, the Historic Barns of Nipmoose are nevertheless within easy driving distance of Bennington, VT, Saratoga Springs, Troy and Albany, NY and Williamstown, MA.
Most frequently, the German Barn serves initially as the reception and bar site, and later in the evening, as the dance hall. Dinner is held in the Scottish Barn, while the little Corn Crib can used for memorabilia or as a photo booth. The most popular location for ceremonies is in front of the aspen grove, and in case of rain, inside the German Barn.
The Nipmoose barns are owned by The Persistence Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to land conservation and preservation of agricultural heritage. Our site is an outstanding example of adaptive re-use with historic structures skillfully restored to accommodate wedding events.
Special features of our site include about 100 oil lanterns hanging from shepherds hooks. These surround the barns and parking area creating a magical aura at night. In addition, all three barns are equipped inside with attractive Barcelona hanging lights. While dining tables and chairs are not included with the rental, we provide a large number of antique/rustic furniture and other items for couples to use as decorations inside and outside the barns.
Guests at our weddings frequently exclaim that it is the most beautiful wedding site they have every seen!View Vendor Storefront
