Overview

The Skinner Barn is a beautifully restored historic dairy barn built in 1891 by the Daniel Skinner family. Of classic post and beam construction, it offers a special environment for educational classes, cultural events, parties, and receptions. Flanked by the majestic Northfield Ridge to its east and the mountains that host the Sugarbush and Mad River Glen ski areas to its west, The Skinner Barn offers a quintessential Vermont setting.The upper floor of The Skinner Barn has been restored with loving attention keeping the historical character of the structure intact. This open space, originally designed for hay storage, is now used as an assembly space for a wide range of functions from weddings & rehearsal dinners to theater camps, theater productions, dances and cabaret performances.

Great venue for a June wedding! Met the nice owner towards the end of the evening, who I would imagine was supervising and making sure everything was going well!

Beautiful pastoral setting for a wedding. Phenomenal barn renovation for events. Of course with no AC, air circulation was good to stay relatively cool. Bandstand was off in corner-could have been more centered on west wall for better sound. Acoustics for speakers was not optimal...More
