Event FAQ

HOW MANY GUESTS CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE FOR A WEDDING RECEPTION?

Sennebec Farm can accommodate wedding receptions of up to 400 people with the addition of a tent. For a more intimate wedding, you may be able to forego renting a tent as the barn can hold up to 50-60 guests seated for dinner. If your guest list is more than 60, you should plan to rent a tent.


DO YOU HAVE RESTROOMS?

No. The Farmhouse has restrooms but these are only for those staying in the rooms. You will need to rent port-o-potties to accommodate your guests.


CAN WE SUPPLY THE ALCOHOL?

Yes, you may purchase your own beverages, including alcohol, but you are required to employ an insured bartender to serve it. 


DO YOU HAVE ON-SITE PARKING?

Yes! There is on-site parking available for up to 200 cars. There are large fields for parking, depending on the size of the event. The parking area is away from the barn and grounds so that you won't have a parking lot next to your event, yet it's easily accessible for your guests.


ARE TABLES AND CHAIRS INCLUDED?

While we have a few banquet tables on site, we find that most couples have their own vision of their event. Therefore, we have local rental companies we can recommend who will work with you to design your ideal seating arrangements. They're ready to help you pull together all your rental needs, from tables and chairs to place settings as well as any other necessities needed for your perfect  day.


HOW LATE CAN OUR EVENT GO?

We ask that the bar close and the music end at 9 pm the night of your event with the expectation that your guests have left the property by 10 pm.


CAN WE HAVE THE REHEARSAL DINNER IN THE BARN?

Yes! Please remember the catering and bartending must be licensed and insured. And keep in mind that cleanup is required after the rehearsal dinner in order to be ready for your wedding day.

 

HOW LONG IS THE RENTAL PERIOD?

If you have rented for the weekend then check-in is at 5 pm Thursday and check out is 11 am Sunday. Early check-in and/or late check-out may be arranged for a fee. If you are renting for one day only, check-in is at 9am and check-out is at 10 pm, with quiet times from 9-10 PM.


ARE THERE SPECIFIC VENDORS WE NEED TO USE?

No. It’s important to us that you're able to craft your event to reflect your individual personalities and desires, so we don't restrict your vendor choices. We are more than happy to provide recommendations, and we do have a list of preferred vendors (see our list).


IS THERE ON-SITE LODGING FOR GUESTS?

Yes—you may rent the Farmhouse which can accommodate up to 8 guests.


IS THERE HEAT OR AIR-CONDITIONING?

There is no  air-conditioning in the Farmhouse, but fans in each room, and a great breeze most days. Each room in the Farmhouse has its own thermostat for heat. The barn is not heated and does not have air conditioning. 


DO WE NEED TO CLEAN UP?

Sennebec Farm is a "leave no trace" event venue. We ask that all rental items be broken down and stacked for pick up by your rental company. It's always a good idea to check with your caterer as to whether or not they will provide this service for you. We require all personal items, décor, and florals to be removed from the property by 11 AM the day following your event.
