Okemo's newest edition to our world class wedding venues is The Toll Gate Garden. Surrounded by mountains, this garden is nestled in the backyard of the historic Ranta House on the Jackson Gore side of the mountain. The Toll Gate Garden is the perfect place to exchange your vows under the sun… or the stars. Whatever your hearts' desire, Okemo's outstanding service teams will work with you to make your wedding day the most special day you could dream of.
The Toll Gate Garden, situated on the site of the old Ranta Farm barn, has a long and storied past. One of Ludlow's original homesteads, the farm was also the location of one of four tollgates along the Green Mountain Turnpike that linked Lake Champlian and Boston. Once a busy road for horsedrawn carriages and wagons, the turnpike is now a quiet, tree-lined country lane. The white-clapboard farmhouse once served as a tavern for weary travelers and tolls along the stretch of road from Bellows Falls to Clarendon varied from 30 cents for a one-horse carriage to 56 cents for a wagon drawn by two horses.
We invite you to come enjoy the spectacular country views, relaxing mountain atmosphere, and genuine hospitality of Okemo Mountain Resort.
