A company holiday party at River Winds Farm & Estate will provide a backdrop unlike any banquet facility, and a seasonal experience that will put everyone in a festive mood.
Sure, you could have your holiday party at a typical venue – a reserved room at a restaurant, a private room at a banquet facility, your company conference room. But wouldn’t it be great to host your party at something a little more special? A venue steeped in history, beautiful holiday décor and lights, and scenic views of snow-topped pastures and hills. This year, give them something to remember!
Your holiday event is guaranteed to have a one-of-a-kind feel if you host it in our rustic, comfortable barn. This perfect backdrop to any party includes horse stalls, post and beam construction, and wide plank floors. Our barn can accommodate a formal sit-down dinner service, cocktail reception or informal dance party. Watch the evening sunset over the White Mountains and toast to the holidays and the new year from the west-facing side of the relaxed space.
If your smaller group wants to relax in a homey setting, the Austin House at the Estate is just the spot. The antique farmhouse is restored to offer modern amenities, while still maintaining a country feel. The large kitchen and dining room, parlors and sitting rooms, and guest quarters provide plenty of spaces for merrymaking. We’ve had groups host wreath-making parties and wine tastings – get creative and plan something distinctive for your group!
We offer full beverage and bar services hosted by our team of trained bartenders. We have a selection of bar service options to choose from to fit any event style. While we don’t offer catering in-house, we can refer you to many qualified caterers, or choose your own, to prepare food in our professional chef’s kitchen. We have the space to accommodate everything from hors d’oeuvres and snacks to buffets and formal banquet dinners.
If you want to add a little more function into your holiday celebration agenda, one of the many perks of River Winds is that we have numerous spaces for groups to gather, areas for breakout sessions, and plenty of outdoor spaces for team building activities and bonding exercises.
Events and hosting gatherings is what we do at River Winds. Our professional staff will help you plan your event, send you in the right direction for caterers and other vendors, and make sure every detail is executed just right.
We also offer the added bonus of lodging options in the Austin House, our fully restored historic farmhouse that has all the accoutrements of any upscale accommodation. The house has 8 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, a large chef’s kitchen, cozy sitting rooms, fireplaces, as well as open common spaces.
Overnight guests can also enjoy our heated indoor pool, a stroll around the grounds and stables, or a cross-country ski or walk along our miles of groomed trails leading down to the Saco River.
Enjoying an event at River Winds Farm & Estate is truly a unique and charming experience. Made even more magical by the lights and festivities of the holidays. Request a proposal today and let’s get started planning a holiday party your guests will be raving about for years to come!
