The Property


Historical beauty.

Like most historical markers in Grafton,  Riverledge Farm has been preserved and respected through generations.  From our heirloom apple orchard to our miles of colonial rock walls creeping in and out of the 250+ acres of wooded area, unique care has been taken to sustain the property's beauty for over 200 years.

Back in the early 1800's when the Farm was born, its fields were full of livestock grazing lush pastures.  Today, you will still spot a cow or two feeding in the fields along with other animals such as fox and deer that have made their home in the wooded area behind the Event Barn.  Walking along the two miles of streams out to the half-acre aerated pond, you may hear a woodpecker or spot a blue jay soaring high above the tree line. 

Our job has been to not only maintain this home for others, but also to walk alongside of it as it grows and prospers.  We are honored to be a part of it.  The landscape and architecture on Riverledge Farm truly are a painting come to life, a living work of art that lets you experience first-hand all the rural charm that southern Vermont has to offer.

 

the event barn


Dated all of the way back to 1808, our 4000+ square foot timber frame Event Barn at Riverledge Farm encompasses all things past and present.  Thoughtfully and meticulously updated to preserve the historical authenticity of the building , the Barn provides all the features you would desire for weddings, receptions, retreats, conferences, and more!  

The natural beauty and workmanship of Riverledge provides a picturesque backdrop for the perfect wedding and reception location.  But that's not all that we offer.  With enough room to accommodate several families, we are also the perfect place to host a large family reunion or get-together.  And the peaceful seclusion combined with being just a short distance from town also makes this the go-to setting for writer's retreats, weekend workshops, and corporate conferences.  

Some of our amenities include, but are not limited to the following:

Year Long Temperature Control

Giant Handmade Copper Chandaliers by Local Artisans

Track Lighting with Dimming Capabilities

Men’s & Women’s Restroom Access

Commercial Size Kitchen

Adjoining Horse Stables

At Riverledge, we believe that every event needs a personalized approach to be truly successful; therefore, our offerings will be tailored to meet your specific needs.  To request more information or a tour of the property, please send us an email.
