Goats and horses mill about the grounds of this 40-acre retreat, offering a bucolic backdrop for outdoor nuptials. Natural light pours through the oversize doors of the classic red and white barn; when the sun goes down, rustic lanterns take over. Members of the wedding party can ready themselves at the property’s six-suite restored Dutch inn; rooms have private balconies and fireplaces. Two-day site rentals start at $4,000, which includes access to the inn’s common area.
