OLMSTEADVILLE — Steve and Diane Colletti, owners of the It’s About Thyme Farm, have recently announced the opening of the Adirondacks’ newest wedding venue, the Once Upon a Time Barn.

“We have been working towards this goal for some time now and we couldn’t be happier with the final product,” said Steve Colletti. “We know how much a wedding can cost so we really tried to add a lot of value to our customers. Folks who book our venue get the run of the place from noon the day before their event to noon the day after.”

The Once Upon a Time Barn is in Olmstedville, NY, which is in southern Essex County.  The 1200 square foot structure was originally constructed in the 1800’s and is built along a waterfront with Adirondack mountain views.  It sits within a 150-acre working farm surrounded by pumpkin fields, an apple orchard and gardens.

“Our amenities include a brand new, complete commercial kitchen. Our guests can hire their own caterer, or we can do it for them. We also feature a wood-fired pizza oven and an air conditioned bar and we have our own liquor license,” said Diane Colletti. “We want to make things as easy and hassle free as possible.  We even offer a two-bedroom guest house for the entire booking.” Colletti continued, “Other amenities include a beautiful stone patio, amazing landscaping and a wedding arch overlooking the mountains.”
