Originally built as a working farm c. 1817, Garden Gate at Haley Farm has become a unique location for couples looking to celebrate in all the beauty Western Maine has to offer - rolling mountains, deep pine forests, and a short drive from the shores of Sebago Lake. Whether you grew up in Maine, spent your summers on the lake, or are looking for a rustic setting for your destination wedding, Garden Gate creates the perfect backdrop encompassing rural New England charm at its finest.
Our 70 wooded acres are surrounded by stone walls and include a barn, adjacent lawn, and an open pasture. The nearly 200 year old New England barn remains the heart of the farm. The bright yellow door leads you to a rustic, rough hewn post and beam barn with a 40 x 60' layout allowing for approximately 125 seated guests and a dance floor. After 100 years of cattle walking through the barn, updated wood plank flooring leads you to a built-in bar made of reclaimed wood. Continuing through the barn, haylofts have been removed to reveal a soaring three-story ceiling. Double doors at the back of the barn lead you to a 40 x 12' deck , 2-stories high looking out on the forrest. Adjacent to the barn is a 40 x 60' lawn surrounded by gardens and the forrest. Perfect for your wedding ceremony and cocktail reception, it also allows for weddings with up to 200 guests the option of a tented reception followed by dancing in the barn. Photo opportunities abound with the open pasture, gardens, stone walls, and 100 year old maple trees.
