Event & Wedding Venue in New Hampshire

Willoughby Ridge, a hill farm dating back to the 1800s, overlooks Squam Lake which was the site of the movie “On Golden Pond”. The barn, built in 1880, has recently been renovated with an eye to preserving the original structure and feel, but transforming it into a unique historic wedding barn in New Hampshire catering to rehearsal dinners,  weddings and special events.

Located only four miles from the town of Holderness, our New England wedding venue looks out across a pond and green fields to the lake beyond and will comfortably accommodate up to 200 guests. A commercial kitchen beneath the main floor allows caterers space for preparation and easy access.

For couples wanting a larger wedding there is the possibility of adding a tent in the pebbled courtyard, or in the field by the barn. These spaces could also serve as picturesque locations for a ceremony, drinks and hors d’hoeuvres. Enjoy a glass of wine with a serene walk around the pond, revel in the sweeping landscape or look back at the Squam Range with the barn nestled beneath it.

With endless options, Willoughby Ridge Farm offers you an unforgettable backdrop for a day of your dreams.
