Barnard Inn Restaurant & Max’s Tavern is a historic, romantic, chef-owned wedding venue. In addition to our venue we provide world class catering.
Whether you’ve been dreaming of an elegant outdoor tented affair, a cozy dinner in our renovated barn, or an intimate winter gathering, we'll curate an event to bring your Vermont wedding vision to life!
The historic property offers a 1796 brick chateau, a renovated reception barn, and acres of perennial gardens and paths to explore and enjoy for your ceremony and reception.
We are committed to providing gracious, seamless service to create a relaxing and memorable day for you and your guests. Whether you prefer a black-tie event or a rustic affair, our service is always of the highest quality.
Our cuisine is always freshly prepared and seasonally inspired. We believe food should taste good and ingredients respected and raised with care. Award-winning Chef Will Dodson is celebrating over 20 seasons with the Inn. His dedication to providing good food shines through; he'll forage mushrooms and custom grow microgreens for your wedding!
We are happy to offer gluten free options or alternatives (dairy free or vegan available upon request)
We have two dining options on site, Max's Tavern and our formal dining room. The dining room offers elegant prix-fixe menus - perfect for your anniversary dinner, an engagement dinner or another special occasion!
