The Manson Barn

About Us. Renowned for their Scottish stone wall construction, Neil Manson and his son Corey have made their mark on the Eastern Townships with their beautiful stoneworks. Neil became interested in the barn project in 2008 and over the next 4 years in his spare time (week-ends and holidays) he moved and reconstructed the barn in Austin, a picturesque village nestled in the mountains near Lake Memphremagog.

Originally a dairy barn and subsequently used for beef farming, the barn will now be a reception hall and available for rent for your special occasion.

This is a new and exciting chapter in the history of this great barn.

The story of the Barn and its re-construction is detailed in our History page.

The Barn can easily handle groups of 200 persons with tables on the main floor and an additional 12 tables on the second floor (a mezzanine). Two outside balconies, one on each floor overlook the mountains to the north and west and give views all the way from Mt. Peavey on the left to Mt. Foster on the right. The vistas provide a perfect backdrop to any special event or ceremony.
