The Barn. The Shovel Handle Pub is beautifully restored post and beam barn built in 1842. An actual working barn up until the 1970s, the original cow stanchions still hang in the barn along with artifacts from the farming days of Moody Farm.

With twinkle lights wrapped around many of the posts and beams, the pub provides the WOW factor that many wedding couples are looking for in a reception venue. Add candles, centerpieces, decorations, and beautifully set tables, and you will have a venue that people will remember for years to come.

The Grounds. 12 acres are available to your guests to relax, set up lawn games, or explore our various landscaped gardens, wooded areas, and streams. Get great views of the Presidential Range from the top of Whitney Hill.

Ceremony Sites

Front Lawn Ceremony Area...Located just off the main inn, this area is our largest ceremony area and is most convenient to the inn for your guests.  It can handle up to 250 guests and has beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding it with a white birch arbor and brick patio for the bridal vows.  White chairs are typically used in for seating guests in this area.


Hillside Ceremony Area...Looking for stunning mountain views for the background of your wedding?  The hillside ceremony area provides great views of the White Mountains and sits on Whitney Hill just above our property.  It has a white birch arbor as the focal point and can seat up to 120 guests.  White plastic chairs are typically used for this area and a shuttle service is recommended for your guests to get back and forth.  There is a fee of $250 for this ceremony area.

Woodland Ceremony Area... Just created in 2015, this has quickly become our most popular cremony area.  Just across the street from Whitney's Inn, this area provides a spectacular woodland setting surrounded by tall maple and birch trees.  A wood bridge crosses a stream to provide access to the ceremony area but a 200 foot bridal path allows brides and the wedding party to enter from the rear of the ceremony area for that memorable trip down the aisle.  Rough sewn lumber benches provide seating for up to 150 guests.
