We had our rehearsal dinner and wedding at the Barn and it went flawlessly. I could go on for days on what we loved about the venue (mountain views, food, bridal suite, and staff). First off, the design of the venue is ideal for photos and providing a very elegant and slightly rustic aesthetic. Secondly, Steve was incredibly responsive and accommodating. When we first reached out about looking at the venue we were able to meet up with him that weekend and leading up to the wedding he always responded within 24hrs. Also, he worked with us to make sure we were able to execute the vision we wanted for our wedding.

Remarable experience in every way - beginning wth Steve's warm welcoming handshake as we entered. The decor (old time farm building meets contemporary style), the food (obviously prepared with care and attention to differing tastes), the waitstaff (clearly well trained and responsive). This was the perfect setting for our somewhat unconventional family's observance of our next generation's expression of committed love. Thanks for helping to make it unforgettable!

We are so, so grateful that we chose The Barn at Smuggler's Notch for our wedding venue! First, the obvious: the physical beauty of the space and the location are breathtaking. Every time we visited, we were blown away again with how lucky we were to be able to celebrate our love and life together in front of such an incredible view, and in such a beautiful building. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous ceremony on a fall day in Vermont, and the inside space barely had to be decorated as it is already so lovely. Beyond the obvious, though, there was the experience of working with Steve and Jennifer, for which we are so grateful. We appreciated so much their personal attention and enthusiasm for our event from the first time we met with them, and we have loved working with them since then. Their passion for their work and for investing each celebration at the Barn with individual attention and care is inspiring. They really cared about helping us craft our wedding exactly the way we wanted it, and were so helpful with working out the details as we did so. In addition, they have done an amazing job building a team in their collaborations with Cast Iron Catering and Portrait Gallery for photography. Both were incredible! In particular, our experience with Cast Iron Catering was absolutely perfect from start to finish, and their familiarity with the space of the Barn and working relationship with Steve and Jennifer made planning go so easily and smoothly. (And the food was SO GOOD!! So, so good.) Our day was truly magical and full of so much joy, and a big part of that was the tone and ambiance set by Steve and Jennifer in their wonderful, gorgeous, home-y space. On a final note, we especially appreciated that Steve and Jennifer are fellow dog lovers and welcomed our beloved dachshund DeWitt to be part of our big day! It would not have been as joyful without her. We loved everything about this venue and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to have their

To start, the owners of this venue, Steve and Jennifer, are some of the kindest people I have ever met. Steve's communication and professionalism made this a very easy choice. He is very upfront, but also gentle in his approach. My partner and I were originally looking at venues elsewhere, when I stumbled upon The Barn at Smugglers Notch. Steve treated me as well as my entire family as if we were family of his. This eased the nerves of everyone. Weddings are emotional, as well as very sensitive, as many know. There is a level of vulnerability that precedes being involved in a wedding ceremony. Upon arrival of the ceremony, my mind was at ease. There was a much larger ceremony the day before ours, and I would never had known if no one told me. There was definitely a level of exclusiveness that came with using The Barn. I can tell that Steve truly cares for the people that have decided to use his property. The location is almost too beautiful to be real. The "barn" is tastefully constructed with an incredible back drop of Mount Mansfield (or Smugglers Notch). There is enough space for large events, but the venue is also accommodating for smaller weddings- such as ours. The recommended caters, Cast Iron Catering, were also a big plus in our experience. They provided a very fresh, custom menu. The food was absolutely delicious, and was also reasonably priced compared to normal market value of wedding catering. I would like to note that the staff at Cast Iron were very sharp and on top of taking care of my entire party. We had zero complaints or issues with any of the service we received. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking for a proper event venue. Specifically in my case, weddings. I cannot emphasize enough how kind and well-intentioned Steve Depalma is. In conclusion, if you are looking for a responsibly run, professional yet personable group to work with, I wouldn't look anywhere else but here.

My husband and I recently had our wedding at The Barn at Smugglers Notch and it was truly a dream come true. Once we visited The Barn, it was totally love at first sight. Of course the property is surrounded by the best natural beauty Vermont has to offer but the interior of The Barn at Smugglers Notch is truly breathtaking. The gorgeous interior space is big enough for large events but still can tastefully fit smaller wedding parties such as ours. The Bridal Suit in the loft is luxurious and intimate (seriously amazing!). Although planning a wedding is a joyful time it can sometimes be nerve wracking experience. Steve and Jennifer made planning our wedding a wonderful experience. Their care and concern for their clients in unparalleled and do everything to make sure your special day will be be a beautiful and cherished memory. The Barn's vendor team is nothing but the best and their in house caterer, Cast Iron Catering, provided amazing seasonal fare that our guests are still talking about. To the staff at The Barn at Smugglers Notch: Thank you for making our day the best day.

My husband and I were married at the absolutely beautiful Barn at Smugglers' Notch in mid-September. While we are New Yorkers, Vermont is a very special place for us, and we wanted a wedding venue that would showcase the best of what Vermont has to offer in terms of beautiful mountain views and unique-to-Vermont charm. The Barn's setting is jaw droppingly gorgeous -- getting married with Mount Mansfield covered in beautiful foliage in the background followed by cocktails out on the lawn and under the covered terrace at dusk was a dream. And the Barn itself is a modern take on the iconic Vermont barn -- beautiful light paneling, great sound system and temperature control, modern clean lines and fixtures throughout and lovely bridal suite for getting ready. In additional to florals, Steve allowed us to bring in external draping and lighting (including 30 disco balls!) to add additional d├ęcor to the space and was very flexible and easy to work with on this. The setting for our family style dinner (in the large main room) and the dancing that followed (in the bar room) was perfect. The DePalmas have created something incredibly special in the Barn at Smugglers' Notch. Steve also curated a wonderful set of wines for us and provided a full bar including a signature cocktail. The DePalmas were wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding, the bar service provided was impeccable, and they could not have been more lovely hosts to us throughout the wedding day. We can't wait to come back and visit, and the Barn will always be a very special place for us! Highly recommend!!

My husband and I had the most amazing time at our wedding hosted by the Barn at Smuggler's Notch. The owners were incredible - super helpful recommending other vendors, helping to coordinate logistics and giving advice on the flow of the day. The venue itself is stunning. It poured rain on the day of the wedding but we were still able to have an outdoor ceremony on the covered patio and take advantage of the beautiful views. So many of my guests commented on how beautiful the indoor space was as well. Such a well laid out venue. All staff at the event were excellent - nice and accommodating. Everything went off without a hitch thanks to their guidance. I would highly, highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a beautiful Vermont wedding.
