Careful renovation revives a 19th century German Swiss bank barn, which is the focal point for wedding receptions, business retreats, seminars and other special events. The structural simplicity and natural materials form a dramatic backdrop for wedding receptions. Large glass panels provide fantastic views of the 164-acre farm, with rolling hills, farm pond, and streams and barn doors can be opened to bring the outdoors in. The barn includes a bridal suite, groom's room, five restrooms, a small museum, and three stone fireplaces.
Our rural forefathers cut timber from the land, hewed the logs into beams, assembled by mortise and tenons and held together by wooden pegs. Native stones were used to provide the beautiful stone walls for the foundation.
The largely unbroken space of the barn's interior creates a majestic 'Great Room' to accommodate large events.
We invite you to celebrate your special day in our 'Country Cathedral'.
The Patio offers beautiful vistas of the meadow, more than 70 acres of pure farmland, the circa 1711 stone house with water wheel, and smoke house. Two pergolas, trees, and semi-circular peninsula set the stage for a beautiful ceremony. The bar room, and temperature-controlled, weather-protected areas are adjacent to this location.
Ostertag (meaning Easterday in German), presents a showcase of historic structural renewal. A charming Log Cottage, built in the mid 1700's by early German settlers, provides a romantic setting for an outdoor garden wedding. It lies within close proximity to the barn and offers a stream and pond in the background as well as an arch and brick walkway to the front for a beautiful entrance. Perfect for a horse and carriage.
The indoor stable consists of original stone walls, unique art/painted floors, fireplace and full heating and air conditioning. The Ram's Den is located adjacent to this room offering a perfect guest entry to a ceremony while offering soft music, warm lighting, coat racks, gift table/s, and guest book podium. A beautiful location for a ceremony during all seasons.
Guests are encouraged to enjoy the lush meadows, streams and pond and watch migrating geese, blue herons and bald eagles pause in their flight to wander in the nearby pond and beaver dams. Like a treasure tucked away in North Western Frederick County, Maryland, Ostertag Vistas is a jewel in paradise.
