Of course a family wedding is a great event no matter where it is held, but the barn at Mabee Farm made the event unique in its rustic elegance! Guests enjoyed the barn and the grounds. Catered food was excellent. Wonderful and memorable!

We were very glad we stopped by the Mabee farm. It is a beautiful setting next to the Mohawk River. Beautiful 300+ year old farmhouse and other buildings, still going through stages of preservation after being lived in for most of those 300 years. Fairly...More

One of the oldest buildings in the Mohawk Valley. There are interesting history programs at the site, craft fairs and other fun things. Sometimes they have boat rides on the Mohawk River.
