The Rustic Barn trend continues to be strong.

Lakota Barn is a great barn venue in Cambridge. Owner Kim has provided many amenities not included in other barns. Table styled by Fine Affairs.  Centerpiece by Surroundings Floral.

Another great rustic barn is located at The Mansion.  This venue offers a Victorian Mansion, a tented deck and a rustic barn for versatility.  The food by Chef Rick is amazing!

Museums can offer a unique and fun option.

Boutique Hotels are a great option too.  You can go high Victorian at the Adelphi or super Modern at the Pavilion Grand Hotel.  You might also like the Bed and Breakfast option at Anne’s Washington Inn.
