The Skinner Barn is flanked by freshwater streams and swimming holes, fields and footpaths, biking and hiking trails and mountain views. What’s not to love if you’re looking for an immersive Vermont experience!

Arrive at your wedding via Vermont’s “Big Eddy” covered bridge built in 1833 straddling the Mad River Valley. The Skinner Barn is surrounded by Vermont’s finest fishing, organic farms and art studios. The venue is fun for everyone with antique stone walls, brooks and open fields surrounding the restored barn. Inside, floor-to-ceiling antique mirrors, back stairwells dotted with a collection of artifacts and hand-hewn beams make the barn a magical place to celebrate.

The food, beverages, staff and rentals are pre-established for your convenience. Decor is a cinch as the barn is gorgeous and the grounds surrounding the property are stunning. If you’re looking for a quintessential Vermont wedding and want to avoid any hitches, Skinner is a must see.

Sugarsnap was an incredible choice for the catering and bar service for our wedding weekend. Kristen was hands-down the best (event producer), coordinating a tasting that accommodated food allergies, making plans for various forecast scenarios. So many compliments from our guests about the food and service.

Working with Abbey made our wedding stress-free. Every single person from Sugarsnap was friendly and everything happened just as we discussed and planned for in advance. Our guests didn’t stop raving about the food. And, when they drank the bar dry, Sugarsnap was able to restock everything!


“All we can say is WOW. You guys made the perfect canvas for us to experience our special day!”
