Race Brook Lodge can host events for more than 200 people. The beautifully re-finished barn can comfortably host up to 60 people as a combined space for a seated dinner and a dance floor. Weddings with more than 60 guests will need to rent a tent for the seated dinner. The barn can be used as a dance floor/lounge area, and it can also serve as a rain location for the ceremony, when not being set up and utilized for the seated dinner.

Winter Wedding at Race Brook Lodge

From Ashley:

Winthrop and I really wanted something special and out of the ordinary for our wedding day. We are such individual people, yet we wanted our union to be the perfect marriage of our personalities. We thought that Halloween would be the perfect time, so we picked a vintage theme so that the 150 guests could really have fun and dress up, but still keep it formal. We wanted to keep it as green as we could, so we stuck with mostly local vendors. We chose one of our favorite lodges and rented the place for the weekend, so that us and our guests could have one place to just relax and have fun. Friday night, we had small eats and a pumpkin carving party, with pumpkins grown by our neighbors.

We couldn’t have planned a more perfect day to get married. Life is beautifully unpredictable, so we were blessed by getting married in Narnia. We got 2 feet of snow on our day, which provided the perfect backdrop for vows and photos.

For the party, we had a photo-booth downstairs set up by Eric, complete with props, which provided classic shots that we will look back on and laugh at forever. Upstairs, everyone danced their butts off to the sounds of classic and new by our favorite dj. My husband is an Arborist and I, an avid gardener, so our guest book was a hand drawn tree where people could “leaf” their fingerprints. We now have a personalized piece of art on our wall to remind us of our supportive and loving friends and family. Dinner was an amazing display of local, in season vegetables and beef roasted on an open fire. There were boxes and vases of antique colored flowers everywhere and trees hanging from the poles. Guests sipped on locally made alcohol while watching the talented caterers serve food from their steaming cauldrons. Dinner and toasts finished around a bubbling chocolate fountain while sampling miniature cupcakes.

We really had an all-star cast to make this night happen. Everyone was amazing and so professional. We really couldn’t have asked for a better night. All the elements that we chose really painted the perfect wedding for us. We feel truly blessed to be able to have shared this night with everyone.

Throughout the storm, the electricity stayed on, as if on queue, until the last song finished. We finished the night speak-easy style by candle light with a friend playing quietly on the piano.

Nestled at the foot of Mount Race in Sheffield, Mass., Race Brook Lodge is a welcoming respite located off the beaten path. When you step outside your room, you’ll be greeted with breathtaking hiking trails that will lead you to the must-see views from the top of Race Brook Falls.
