Gedney Farm is an ideal destination for a Berkshire wedding weekend. Located in the “Old Berkshire” village of New Marlboro, now a National Historic District, Gedney Farm is a complex of spectacular period architecture with gambrel slate and cedar roofs, and beautifully detailed dormers and cupolas. The property is comprised of two Normandy-style barns and surrounded by 37 acres of pastures and high open meadows. The former dairy barn, now houses 16 guest rooms and suites, all with private bath, many with granite fireplaces and large, tiled whirlpool tubs.
Across the courtyard from the Lodging Barn is the Event Barn, originally a horse barn, which has been renovated for use as a private event venue. The Event Barn features three levels inside. Each level opens up onto the other, the ground level spills out through large sliding glass doors onto garden and courtyard areas where guests can enjoy late afternoon cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Dinner and dancing take place inside the barn on the main and loft levels.
The Event Barn can accommodate up to 250 persons for a “sit down” wedding event with additional space for band and dancing; larger parties are easily accommodated in conjunction with a tent. Event space is fully equipped with AC and heat so that inclement weather and seasonal temperatures are easily managed.
