My family and I came here to gather for a weekend together. We had 9 people ranging from age 6-68, and every single one of us was thoroughly impressed and awed by both the property and the house. My niece and nephew loved running around on the sprawling grounds and making s’mores at the fire pit, safely tucked away from the road, I loved getting out of the hustle and bustle of NYC and having nothing but soft sunlight and birds chirping to wake me up, and my parents/ aunts etc loved playing games in the great room with the family and cooking in the gorgeous kitchen. Every room in the house is beautifully decorated, and attention to detail is the specialty of this property. I highly recommend this property for a family gathering, a group of friends, or a special event!

We had a wonderful country wedding at this beautiful house with lovely gardens. We had full access to the grounds where we set up tents to keep us dry from the rain. All equipment was rented and delivered and stored by the rental company with the help and coordination of the owners, who were more than gracious and helpful in every way during the planning stage and the day of. The size of the house was beneficial because 12 family members slept over also! The ladies especially loved the bridal suite!

Travis and Peggy were incredible to work with. My husband and I had a small wedding reception there and everything about the property exceeded our expectations and WOWED every person in attendance. It is obvious the family takes great pride in the home, and every detail throughout was designed with thought and each piece in the home curated with purpose. The gardens are unbelievable- there is no other way to describe them. There are so many hidden gems inside and outside of the home. It is perfect for any occasion- honestly, it looks like a movie scene. On top of that home is gorgeous, the family that owns it is a joy to work with. Do not hesitate for a minute to book this property- it will be the best place you’ve ever stayed.

This place was absolutely perfect for our wedding and I can’t recommend it enough.
It was perfect. I’ve been planning my wedding for over a year from Los Angeles and had to do everything via email. Nothing about Smith Farm Gardens disappointed when I finally saw it in person.
The planning process was so simple. Peggy and her son, Travis, both are very responsive to email. Every time I had a question or request, they got back to me quickly and were accommodating. (Need to change your rehearsal time? No problem. Need to drop something off early? Sure!)
Peggy takes incredible pride in her home and every tiny corner was impeccably prepared. To say the home and grounds are stunning is an understatement. I will never forget peeking out the window of the bridal suite just an hour before the ceremony and seeing Peggy making sure every tiny stick was removed from the area I’d walk through!
Speaking of the bridal suite….SO perfect. The house is huge. The guys dressed on one side of the house and the ladies took over another. We had music running through the awesome sound system and sipped champagne from the bridal suite refrigerator. Seriously, EVERYTHING was thought of!
During the evening, Travis ran the fire pit where everyone gathered when they needed a break from dancing. We rented the house for the night of the wedding and the following night, which I would highly recommend. The next morning, we had a lazy, unrushed time getting up and enjoying breakfast. Then throughout the day, our family and friends rejoined us for a bit of an informal reception. We played the lawn games that the property provides and wandered the gorgeous gardens and orchard.
I could go on for hours about this incredible weekend, but I’ll stop. The guests couldn’t stop talking about the venue. The ability to rent it for the entire weekend gave us a slow-paced, relaxed event. We’re already joking about how we want to rent it again for a five-year reunion. Ugh, I miss it there!
