Event Planning & Venues
The Homestead at Rest & Be Thankful Farm is a classic New England 18th century working farm in Lyman, Maine offering 65 private and peaceful acres for your special event. Easily reached from I-95, the Homestead is conveniently located a half hour south of the Portland International Jetport, and minutes from the resort towns of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.
A truly bucolic setting, the Homestead features rolling pastures, an heirloom orchard, and perennial gardens ready to accommodate an array of wedding ceremony and reception needs. For more intimate affairs, the antique barn is delightful for cocktails, dancing, and rehearsal dinners.
To ensure a complete rustic chic experience, our beautifully handcrafted farm tables and benches, as well as many of our vintage farm items are available for your use. We can assist you in arranging décor, bar set ups, tractor rides, and connect you with our vendor partners for photography, flowers, tents, catering, and everything else you might need.
