Located within a four hour drive from Boston, Montreal, and New York City, this venue is a convenient choice to gather your guests. Situated amid over one-hundred acres of pristine forest in the heart of the Green Mountains, SVAC offers first-class service and arts culture in a traditional New England setting.
Set on Mount Equinox, the grounds of the Southern Vermont Arts Center offers breath-taking views, as well as beautiful botanical paths, an enclave of Bradford Pear trees, a sculpture garden, and vast meadows and fields for your guests to meander through.
The Yester House Gallery, a historic 1917 Georgian revival mansion is the jewel in the crown of the Arts Center’s campus. The 28- room National Register of Historic Places mansion was built as a “country cottage,” a place to get away from the hurly-burly of Manhattan. The Yester House Gallery’s grand staircase and ten beautiful galleries is a perfect backdrop for your private party. The beautiful space features hardwood floors, red walls, a Grand piano and fireplace.
The largest in Vermont, SVAC’s stunning Sculpture Park and Gardens provide a mix of culture and contemplation for art-lovers. The Elizabeth de C. Wilson Museum, designed by noted architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, is an exquisite venue for a unique gathering. The Arkell Pavilion is a 400 seat acoustical gem without equal. A former barn, the Pavilion was completely restored in 2000.
