Set in a beautifully renovated and restored 100-year old barn overlooking rolling hills of conservation land, the Barn at Gibbet Hill is one of New England’s most unique venues for weddings and special events. Located at the foot of Gibbet Hill, just beyond the picturesque Main Street of Groton, the Barn offers rustic elegance with unparalleled views. The main room features a built in wide-plank oak dance floor, and together with the mezzanines can accommodate up to 225 seated guests. Our covered deck with optional clear side curtains is the perfect spot for cocktails or a ceremony and has sweeping views of the hill, complete with grazing cattle. We can also accommodate a ceremony on the lawn at the foot of the hill. Read less

My fiancé and I are having a longer engagement to accommodate some busy and complicated times in our lives and also to save up for the wedding of our dreams. Because at least half of our guests will be attending from other parts of the country or internationally, we wanted to find our venue early on in our engagement and wedding planning process. We knew we wanted to get married close enough to where we live currently (Providence, RI), and we knew we loved the idea of having a barn wedding. We immediately set out looking for full-service barn/farm-setting wedding venues that could accommodate our needs. Although we still have a long way to go until our wedding day, we are thrilled with The Barn, the professionalism of their staff, and their responsiveness to our questions and concerns. We feel very comfortable knowing that our ceremony and reception at The Barn will be spectacular because of the incredible staff there that will work very hard to make it so, and are so, so happy we don't need to search for, interview, book, and coordinate what seem like a hundred different vendors for everything from flatware and linens to alcohol and food! The only vendors we need to work with outside of The Barn are our officiant, photographer(s), and florist, which is such a relief to us. Immediately upon stepping into The Barn (the property, farm, restaurant, ceremony, and reception spaces), we were blown away, and couldn't picture ourselves getting married anywhere else. Visit for yourself, and we're sure you'll see what we mean!!

We had the wedding of our dreams at Gibbet Hill. They were so accommodating and attentive to details. The barn was beautiful and clean. The grounds were well kept for our outside weddings. All of the food allergies were well tended to. Food was amazing!!! The day was flawless and they made the day run very smoothly!

Oh my gosh, where to start! Deirdre and her team at GH made our wedding day beyond perfect! Not only did Deirdre align with me daily regarding every single detail she also answered every single question I sent her way. The Barn was absolutely gorgeous for our Friday the 13th wedding and we cannot thank her and the staff there enough.

My wedding at Gibbet Hill was back in November... and it was everything I could have ever hoped it to possibly be. My coordinator Sara was professional, flexible and so helpful leading up to and also, the day of! As far as I know, everything went off without a hitch... if there had been any type of flaw, it was handled without me even knowing. The entire day was carefree and beautiful.

The barn itself is stunning... and the crew there did an amazing job of decorating it with the items I had brought, everything was handled with such care. The food was hot and delicious... my guests still compliment me, even to this day about the food and the wedding overall. The Barn at Gibbet Hill was worth every cent we paid... I cannot say enough about this venue, its staff and everything in-between! Thank you!

Go meet them in person and tell them what you want--they'll cater to any way you want your day to shape up and won't try to nickel and dime you. Also consider a daytime reception. The minimum costs are much lower and they throw in a bunch of extras (centerpieces, runners, games, table numbers, etc.) for free. We had our rehearsal dinner at the Grill on site as well. Rental fee was waived because our reception was at the barn and they opened early just for our party.

My wife and I held our rehearsal dinner at Gibbet Hill in Oct 2016. We live in Cambridge and didn't know the area very well so we did a lot of research and Gibbet Hill was one of the top 2-3 venues we found online, and definitely lived up to expectations. We had just over 20 people in their upstairs space, which was perfectly sized for mingling and a cocktail hour, as well as two long tables for dinner. The space is rustic, very handsome, and nicely appointed, we didn't feel the need to decorate at all.

The food was exceptional too, we had been to eat previously and it was real good, but the food at the rehearsal was exquisite. The seasonal soup in particular was noteworthy to me and the mains were also delicious. Service was solid and everyone had plenty of drinks and food. There were multiple comments about how great the food was from guests.

We scheduled and coordinated with Ashley, who was very easy to work with. We had a lot of other vendors who were total flakes that caused us much anxiety, but Ashley and Gibbet were fantastic partners. 5 out of 5, which really can't be underestimated imo.

Bottom line: Gibbet Hill is excellent. If it's on your list and you're considering, it save yourself some time and just book it.

We mostly worked with Deirdre to fine tune our wedding budget. Deirdre was efficient and professional, and truly a pleasure to work with. Since we were on a tighter budget, we did a Saturday morning wedding, which we did not regret as the minimum spend was much lower than Saturday evening wedding. Deirdre never showed any less respect for us doing a morning rather than evening wedding. On the wedding day, everyone in the wedding coordinating team worked together to make sure our wedding went as smoothly as possible, we truly appreciate the team work exhibited by the Gibbet Hill Team. The wedding ceremony and reception went as smoothly as one could ask, and we truly enjoyed every second of it! Thank you Kim for making sure I ate! The Barn was so well maintained and photogenic, we truly picked the right place for our wedding. We can't wait to go back to the Gibbet Hill restaurant to enjoy our complimentary anniversary dinner!

Where do I begin! The barn at Gibbet hill had us hooked the minute we walked in. It has beautiful rustic charm and is beautiful inside and out. The staff is absolutely phenomenal. We worked with Deirdre and she was absolutely amazing! She was so on top of everything and helped us organize every tiny detail the days leading up to our wedding. The day of the wedding Deirdre and her team had the place going like a well oiled machine. We had our own server Emily who was lovely and made sure we actually sat down to eat all of the amazingly delicious food. All of our guests were raving about the food and the service the barn provided. And to top it all off, it is the most gorgeous setting. I can't say enough about this place and the staff here. If you can afford to get married here, do it! You will not regret it!

Our daughter's wedding was held at The Barn on Father's Day weekend. We had booked it back in August 2014. The staff and the venue itself are outstanding. Every aspect of the planning and the wedding itself exceeded our expectations. Our experience with Sara Z, who was our very first contact at The Barn and who handled our wedding including being on site the day of. Sara was responsive, smart and so pleasant !!!!! The planning process was so easy using all the tools she creates for you, you cannot help but be organized. The entire staff, specifically Sandra and Stefanie, who took care of us personal, the day of the wedding. Sandra was so awesome at the end of the night I told her I wanted to take her home and just gave her the biggest hug and she hugged right back, what a sweetheart to have next to you on such an important day, this was my first wedding and I was very happy to have Sandra with me :). Stefanie, took care of our bride, also named Stephanie! Very professional, pleasant and warm. They are really in the right business. The wait staff and house staff, were really personable lovely people who did a great job They received a lot of compliments from our guests, and I have to agree, they were so on top of things and just so happy to be there ! This staff is doing what they love, they do not appear as though they are working. Even at the end of the night helping us load the buses, they were all smiling and happy !!! Just outstanding, exceeded our expectations, from the food, the drinks, to the venue, to the staff. I cannot express my gratitude and the exceptional experience enough. My heart was so light and so happy the next day, I felt like it would leap out of my chest! The Barn was the only venue our daughter and her husband wanted to look at in person, and we signed the day we went! Best decision we ever made. You will all forever be a special part of our memories of this special day. Warmest Regards, Ann Marie Douglass
