THE SABLEWOOD
at Highview Springs

An exquisite barn located in the majestic Catskill Mountains.

We welcome you to celebrate your most precious moments in our lovingly restored circa 1870 barn. The eighty acres of serene mountain vistas, the centuries-old oak tree, lush fields and the huge star-filled night sky will all become a part of you.   

Our working family farm is an escape to a different world just 35 minutes outside Albany and under 3 hours to NYC or Boston.

Relax and enjoy your family and friends while we handle all the details.

Every aspect of hosting your flawless event has been considered throughout our multi-year planning and restoration project.  We have invited event planners and specialty chefs, photographers and florists, musicians and makeup artists – each to provide insight on what creates effortless and memorable events.

We considered every detail from guest flow to air conditioning flow, from radiant heat keeping your toes warm to location of power outlets, from window placement to wood treatments that are most ideal for photography.

Our friendly and supportive team has been built with the same level of attention that has been given to the venue.  We are here to work with you every step of the way to help create your unique and personalized celebration.

Natural Glamour

Redefining Luxury

Simple, organic beauty blended with old world grandeur and warm hospitality

The Sablewood is truly unique among an ever growing number of event spaces. Around the farm herds of deer and flocks of turkeys roam the fields and drink from the hillside pond where you can see our favorite little turtles sunning themselves on a giant rock.

Inside ambient light floods The Sablewood making it a photographer’s dream. The warm wood walls soar an impressive three stories high to a forty foot peak. 150 years of artisan craftsmanship surround you from the impressive framing architecture to the breathtaking 1920s crystal chandelier and every detail of handcrafted custom lighting, hardware, and carpentry.

As the sun sets the candle lights glow and the barn takes on a magical feel. This place was here long before us and we have attended to every painstaking detail to ensure its rugged post & beam structure will stand for hundreds of years to come.

“In the simplest of terms, the farm and surrounding property are magnificent…”

- ALYSSA G.

A truly beautiful & unique setting for any occasion…

“The farm and surrounding property are magnificent. Set on a bucolic piece of land with picturesque views from every angle and undulating hills, the venue makes for a truly beautiful and unique setting for any occasion at any time of the year. Great care is taken to maintain the natural beauty of the farm that once acted as a stable for Morgan horses. The barn has undergone incredible and meticulous reconstruction making it a showstopper of a site.”

- Alyssa G.

An unbelievable historic barn & absolutely beautiful views…

“My fiancé and I have our hearts set on getting married in a barn. We love that Highview Springs not only has an unbelievable historic barn but also has absolutely beautiful views. We may have to schedule extra time with our photographer there are so many beautiful photo areas! The owners made us feel at home and we are so happy to have found this place.”

- Suzanne T.

…even a fire outside at night for s’mores!

“We highly recommend Highview Springs Farm to anyone who has even considered a barn wedding! It is such an amazing barn with a great open space with lots of flexibility and a spectacular chandelier! We loved the windows all around - you feel like you are outside but you also have heat and AC. We appreciated that they handle so many things for you- that we don’t have to rent or setup anything - all the tables and chairs and setup and even a fire outside at night for s’mores.”

- Hannah B.

We didn't want the night to end!

“Highview Springs Farm offered my husband and I the most naturally beautiful venue to celebrate our marriage in the Schoharie Valley. Similar settings in the Boston area, where we lived at the time, were not affordable and too restrictive. This location offered a respite from the buzz of the city for our guests. We had a fabulous experience from the very beginning of planning until the last guest left. The only problem was, we didn't want the night to end!”

- Alyssa G.

Our friends will be blown away!

“We looked at so many barns but most were a bit small or had chopped up space or multiple levels so people couldn‘t sit together or eat and dance in the same barn. The space is awesome here! Everyone can be together and everything is provided so no renting tents, heaters, AC, tables, or chairs. Lisa goes above and beyond and is even setting up a day to show our photographer around the entire property before the wedding. We love that none of our friends have seen the place so they will all be blown away!”

- Emily & Rachael

From the moment we arrived - this was our place.

“We knew from the moment we arrived that this was our place! The barn is amazing! It feels like you stepped back in time with the huge beams and crazy high ceilings. It is so beautiful with so much attention to detail.”

- Hannah & Greg
