Located in the rolling hills of Barnard, Stonewall Lodge is an ideal venue for couples looking for a beautiful, blank canvas to make their own. The lovingly-renovated log cabin and its grounds are the perfect backdrop for a Vermont wedding in any season.

"Having a private place where you can create a magical wedding is ideal when the surroundings are this gorgeous," says Lodge owner John. "We hope that couples find Stonewall Lodge a place to create memories that last forever."

Situated on nine private acres, the Lodge has an expansive, flat lawn which is ideal for a tented wedding. Adding to the property's beauty are "stone farm walls and sweeping views of the distant Chateauguay land reservation," says John. 

Be it a microwedding or large gathering, the Lodge has plenty of room for parking and vendor setup/service areas to accommodate most any function.

The cabin itself is a romantic, cozy getaway. John and his husband have carefully made significant upgrades, including the kitchen and bathrooms, to update the property while maintaining its rustic charm. It would be a lovely spot to get ready the morning of the wedding, and to retire to after the festivities.

The Lodge can also be rented for vacation stays for groups up to six. John suggests visitors explore the Barnard General Store, Silver Lake, and numerous ski and bike trails.

On a personal note, John says he and his husband will always have a special place in their heart for Vermont weddings, having celebrated their own in the Green Mountain State (see below)!

Two questions we always ask...

What's your favorite moment during a wedding?

Walking down the aisle and seeing all your incredible amazing friends and family all in one place for your special day!

What's your favorite thing to do in Vermont?

In the immediate vicinity, Silver Lake is a gorgeous and special spot. Nearby Woodstock has Mount Tom and Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park - a "must visit" if you are in the area.  Also, in nearby Quechee there is the famous Simon Pearce glass blowing shop and restaurant.
