Ferry Watch Inn is a waterfront barn wedding venue located in Grand Isle, Vermont. The barn was originally constructed in 1790 by Dr. Simeon Clark, the paymaster for the US Army. In search of gold coins during the War of 1812, British soldiers invaded the property. They left with no gold, but a few geese for dinner. Since then, the barn was completely renovated in 2009 and is ideal for hosting couples looking for a charming facility. The sprawling grounds offer an opportunity for you and your loved ones to enjoy beautiful sunsets over the Adirondack Mountains of New York and historic Lake Champlain. The gorgeous natural setting paired with the updated barn can provide you with several backdrops for photo opportunities.
