This remarkable property is not only the area's premier wedding venue, but it is also rich with historical significance dating back to the 1800s! The Chanteclaire farm has been operating as a wedding and event site for the past 20 years. Spread over 100+ acres, this farm, only 10 minutes outside of the Deep Creek Lake Area currently hosts up to 30 weddings per year. Not only is it a collection of stunning space, but it is also a profitable business, should the new owner want to continue to operate it this way. *All existing contracts must be honored. Contact listing agent for additional details. The land is a beautiful blend of yard space, pastures and fields, and wooded areas. The large pond on the property will serve as a brilliant background to treasured memories. The finished spaces range from expansive to modest in size and something in between. The pillar of the property is the completely finished and upgraded event barn with a stylish salon, a large covered deck, and a patio, and a full commercial kitchen. Originally built in 1840, it was renovated and restored in 2000 and transformed from a working barn to the spectacular space we know today. The floor was totally rebuilt, the frame reinforced, insulation added, new ceilings installed, and the addition of the commercial kitchen, bathrooms, and the deck rounded out the project. In 2014, the barn's silo was converted to a one-of-a-kind Silo Bar. Taken on by the TV network Animal Planet for their series "Wild Restoration", the silo underwent an intense conversion. This spot on the farm went from a container for corn storage to an unbelievable steam-punk inspired bar that has been wowing visitors for 7 years, In addition to the barn and silo, there are several outbuildings on the property including the original spring house, garages, storage buildings, and a cute little chicken coop. Overlooking the sparkling pond is one of the farm's most beloved gems: the Friend Cottage. This log and chinking structure was originally built in 1840 by the farm's first owner, Johnathan Friend, grandson of Friendsville's namesake and first European settler to the area, John Friend. In 1981 the then 41-year-old cabin was thoroughly renewed by a Garrett County resident who had a special connection to the property. Every stone and log were numbered as they were removed so that they could be put back exactly where Johnathan places them when the cabin was first constructed. Today, the cabin sits just as Johnathan intended, but with a blend of stylish and bold decor. Fully equipped with a kitchen dining area, laundry, three bedrooms, one full bath, and open living space, guests enjoy serenity around the original wood-burning fireplace, or spend time on the front porch, looking over the pond. It serves today's wedding parties as a retreat during the wedding weekend. Finally, we talk about the exquisite Victorian Farm House. Just across the driveway from the cottage, this space is also used as a haven for wedding attendants as they prepare for the "big day". Enter the charming foyer and be immediately taken by the design and preservation of this 1896 construction. 2725 square feet with a spacious kitchen and dining area, large living space with fireplace, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fenced-in backyard, a huge front porch, and a private back deck, this structure is as comfortable as it is striking.
