What makes your venue unique? While our facility was a barn - it is the only private barn in UPstate NY that is completely up to code as a banquet hall for building, fire and safety (so no worries about venue closures due to non compliance- as we have fire suppression, and all of the extras!) The venue is fully climate controlled (the only barn with a/c and heat !!!) as well as handicap accessibility (from interior handicap bathrooms to an elevator!) We have nearly 200 acre of pristine landscapes! From waterfalls, mountains, meadows, streams, wooded trails and stocked ponds - with covered bridge, vistas and views - you will not have a greater abundance of outdoor ceremony locations or photo opportunities anywhere! We also have an on site shuttle and utv to help transport guests or bridal parties during the events.

Our facility also has on premise liquor license - so we offer additional options others don't to help save on the budgets! You can have full open bar, wine/beer, non-a, or byob options - ( byob must be served and licensed by our facility but we don't require you to purchase the alcohol through us). Wolf Oak Acres also is proud to announce the addition of 6 brand new onsite cottages for overnight accommodations this year! We can have up to 38 guests (usually the couple and the bridal parties along with immediate family). These houses are all climate controlled, fully furnished and stocked with amenities, have hot water on demand, cable, wifi, gas grills, a communal fire-pit , shuttle service after the wedding, and farm to fork gourmet breakfast delivered to the doors in the mornings.

Do you have a ceremony location? MULTIPLE! There are nearly 200 acres - from our waterfront pond location, woodland stream, perennial gardens, chapel, or grounds the possibilities are endless for outdoor ceremonies! If weather decides not to cooperate - we literally just move inside! No worries over extra costs and hassles for tents and rentals. The upstairs of our facility has climate control and a cobblestone fireplace that nuptials can be performed in front of!

What is the capacity of your venue? Typically we can accommodate 240 all on one level, but we do have the capacity to handle just over 400 if using both floors, or even higher if you decide to bring in tents.

What are your catering and outside vendor guidelines? We allow you to customize every aspect of your day! You are welcome to bring in any caterer of your choice, as well as any additional service providers to handle all of your special needs, allowing you to create the wedding of your dreams!
