    We had our wedding at the Hamlin House last weekend and I can't say enough great things about the whole experience! Lynn was our point person there, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the whole process. She promptly answered any questions we had which I really appreciated and she has done this many times so I had full confidence that we were in good hands. Our wedding day ran so smoothly and everything was exactly as planned! We got many compliments from our guests on our unique venue and the food! Hamlin House is a great value and a beautiful venue, we highly recommend having your wedding here!!

    We had our New Years eve wedding reception at the Hamlin House and we have not stopped receiving compliments from the guests at our wedding about how unique and beautiful the venue was, how great the wait staff and bar service was and how phenomenal the food was.
    As the bride, working with Sharon the banquet manager was easy and i didn't feel pressured at any point in time. Whenever I had a question I called Sharon and she was always there and always answered my needs.
    I have only good things to say about Hamlin House and I'm so thankful our wedding was here.

    The Hamlin House was an amazing venue. Their food was DELICIOUS! All of the staff was very helpful, especially Sharon. She even allowed us to use the bridal suite before the ceremony for the girls to get ready despite having our ceremony at a different location. The building is lovely so it made decorating easy, it doesn't need any! The bartenders were friendly and great. Just a wonderful experience all around. Definitely recommend!
