My husband and I had our wedding reception at Great River in November 2020. Two weeks before our wedding the COVID restrictions for outdoor events tightened, which caused us to have to cut 40% of our guest list. The staff of Great River, especially Gail Hunt, were quick to offer creative solutions that would prioritize the safety of all guests and staff, while also helping us keep some sense of normalcy. We had an excellent experience working with them, the venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the price is very reasonable! Highly recommend.Sent on 12/03/2020

Absolutely Amazing Venue
My husband and I got married here on 10/30/2020 in the middle of a pandemic... with temperatures lower than they had been...it rained, it snowed ... anything you could think of. But the amazing and wonderful people at Great River made it the most memorable day of our lives. To start, we booked Great River before the pandemic, and when things started to get bad, we wondered what we would do about the wedding. Luckily, when things started to change and look up here in Connecticut, Great River told us that they would be getting a tent to continue to safely host weddings and other events. We were so excited that our wedding was still on! They worked with us from start to finish on food tasting, cake tasting, rehearsal dinner planning and were so helpful, especially during this time of uncertainty. Of course, as I mentioned, the day before the wedding, heavy rains caused the tent to flood, but again the people at Great River worked with us to safely move everything into the ballroom. Every guest had their temperatures checked upon entry to ensure peace of mind as well as to keep everyone healthy and safe. A week has passed since the wedding and everyone is still talking about it, still sending each other pictures and still reminiscing about the wonderful moments we all shared together. Not to mention the AMAZING food. Everyone can't stop raving about how good the food was! If you want to have a memorable, relaxed, fun and overall wonderful wedding experience I cannot recommend Great River Golf Club enough!!Sent on 11/07/2020

We just got married a month ago. We honestly could not have made a better decision to have our wedding at Great River Country Club. The whole venue is absolutely gorgeous and Gail, Erin, Lusanne and Dan were amazing! They took care of everything! My wedding day was so easy to deal with knowing I had them behind me. Everyone is still raving about the food, the service and the beauty of the place. We can not thank everyone at Great River enough!Sent on 10/31/2019

Incredible venue! I had the privilege of performing here for a wedding cocktail hour - the space is magnificent!
Great River is truly a hidden gem! It is one of our favorite venue's to work in. The entire staff is so wonderful. From the moment a couple meets with one of their coordinators they will see how professional and amazing they will be to work with! There food is fantastic and service is great! A must see for any newly engaged couple. Danielle Farrer Flowers by Danielle,
