Make Your Day. Make a Difference.

The West Monitor Barn is a very unique, green wedding venue.

All proceeds from renting the West Monitor Barn go towards funding Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC) programs, which employ hundreds of young people to work on high-priority conservation and education projects across the state of Vermont each year.

Rental of the West Monitor Barn includes the use of the 3rd floor reception area (Hay Mow), an 80ft private deck, a commercial kitchen, two first floor and two third floor restrooms, main lobby, elevator, stairs, and the gorgeous field behind the Barn.

The interior is spacious and cozy at the same time, with rough-hewn lumber, carriage barn lamps, and the character of a traditional dairy barn. Outside, the West Monitor Barn is surrounded by spectacular views of forests, woodlands, conserved fields, and the foothills of Vermont’s third tallest mountain, Camel’s Hump.

-A Saturday rental is $5,500 plus 9% tax ($5,995)
-We require a signed contract and a 50% deposit to hold a date.
