Private Gatherings

The Barn at Pickering House offers a casually chic setting for all types of private events, from wedding receptions and rehearsal dinners, to family reunions, birthday and anniversary celebrations, bon voyage parties, meetings and retreats, and more. Our lovingly restored 19th century barn provides the rustic feel of a classic New England barn in a surprising location in the heart of downtown Wolfeboro, just a short walk from the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee.
  The Barn accommodates gatherings of up to 150 people for sit-down events.
