LOcke Falls Farm

Locke Falls Farm offers a breathtaking pastoral countryside, an ideal venue for your rustic chic wedding celebration or a tranquil family retreat. The beautifully landscaped property, perennial gardens and rolling fields provide a picturesque backdrop for the farm’s gracious event barn. The sprawling antique home offers ample housing for your bridal party, while the expansive stone patio provides an elegant setting for cocktails and receiving. A variety of flexible pricing packages are available.

The antique dwelling was originally built in 1844 with the existing hand hewed beams seen today. Over time, the property has been artistically restored to resemble the picturesque descriptions of yesteryear – where majestic landscapes entertained travelers brought by rail and stage to experience mountain climbing, summer rambles or partake in the property dance pavilion during the early 1900’s. The barn has recently undergone a spectacular renovation, making the transformation from a working horse farm to a grand venue for any celebration.

Wonalancet translates to Pleasant Breathing. When you consider the Farm’s rich history, the breathtaking, rustic countryside ~ what better way to celebrate your special event or family retreat than taking in the sweet tranquility at Locke Falls Farm.
