THE BARN

With its two and a half story vaulted ceiling and open 1,800 square feet of entertaining space, The Barn on Walnut Hill comfortably accommodates between 125-200 guests depending on your layout and event agenda. Crowned by the original rooftop cupola, the post and beam structure is warmly lit by hand-wrought chandeliers and dragonfly-etched sconces. The former chicken coop, fully open to the barn, is now home to an elegant bar featuring a two tap draught system, crafted from reclaimed barn wood and Carrera marble and furnished with vintage tractor seat stools and a large soapstone sink. Two pairs of French doors, accessible by both the barn and bar, open on to a classic granite patio (which can be tented) for savoring cocktails in view of manicured grounds or a breath of fresh Maine air. Special features in our unique 19th-century space include modernized amenities like separate power for sound systems and extra lighting and a heating and cooling system to keep guests comfortable in any temperature.

THE FARMHOUSE

Imbued with classic Maine style, the sophisticated 3,000 square foot farmhouse, profiled in two nationally published design magazines, offers fully furnished accommodations for out-of-town guests that are delightfully serene and romantic. Five exquisitely appointed bedrooms comfortably sleep up to twelve guests. The stocked professional kitchen and butler’s pantry, formal dining and living rooms, and dinner service for up to twenty-four guests, make entertaining easy and elegant. With a great room to kick back in, we invite you to call The Barn on Walnut Hill home during your stay.

THE GROUNDS

The meticulously manicured grounds of The Barn on Walnut Hill are dotted with custom-designed perennial gardens and shaded by soaring and far-reaching trees. Ample space abounds; four green acres provide room for a tent should you desire one. A pickle ball/paddle tennis court invites spirited competition while the plein-air woodland sanctuary, accessible by a meandering boardwalk, offers a unique space for your ceremony. A generously sized deck with chic outdoor furnishings and a gas grill is the perfect spot to lounge midday or indulge in an outdoor feast.

Catering

At The Barn on Walnut Hill, clients are required to select from a finely honed group of elite caterers including Aurora Provisions, Dandelion Catering, Fire & Co. Catering, Hunter's Bend, 111 Maine, and Piccolo, who will be certain to create menus--whether elegantly simple or superbly sophisticated--that will inspire and dazzle guests. Please note, however, that all other rentals are to be contracted out at your discretion and choosing (aside from a wedding planner which is detailed here). Should clients choose to provide their own alcohol, they must purchase host liquor liability insurance, which can be completed online, and hire a Maine state licensed bartender for the event.
