Best place we could've gotten married
My husband and I wanted to have all our friends and family there. We didn't want to have to worry about having to pick and choose who could come to fit a venue's max number. Holiday Hill was the perfect place for a large wedding. We had just under 250 people, but more could've come easily. The price was incredibly reasonable compared to other venues and having the flexibility to literally do whatever we wanted in terms of food, music, decorations etc. was amazing. It felt like a truly unique wedding and completely us. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Dudley and Holiday Hill for your wedding.Sent on 12/04/2019

Wedding Fun & Perfection!
Dudley and the team at Holiday Hill were phenomenal to work with, and the setting was beautiful and well-suited for a super fun day of love and celebration! I have been a professional event planner and producer for many years working in tons of venues, and they were one of the best, ever. Responsive, flexible, creative, and helpful. All of my questions were answered in advance, and after I shared a floor plan Dudley offered excellent advice that improved everything x10!
Our wedding was around 100 people, which EASILY fit into the lovely tent with tables, dance floor, BBQ buffet, bar, and games, with the grounds to wander. We had many options for the ceremony and loved each for different reasons, but opted for a little ceremony in a new location for them, under a few trees next to the tent. Though unconventional, they batted zero eyelashes and helped arrange the chairs and power for what ended up being an incredibly lovely spot... steps away from a bar ;-). Nothing soothed my mind like knowing I had an awesome barn as *back-up* for the ceremony in bad weather!
We had over a dozen kids there and they weren’t the only ones that went mad for the playground, games, and grounds--so many people commented on how much fun they had, and the parents were very, very thankful to have exhausted children by the end of the evening. Pro tip: bring some kites. Kids LOVE running with kites, even in the stillest of wind!
All in all, I kind of wish we could get married AGAIN, just to have another bash there. Looking all around CT, there is nothing to compare to the value and quality of this venue! 11/10, high recommend!Sent on 10/24/2019

This took me forever to put up a long overdue endorsement for Mansfield Holiday Hill Weddings and Parties! We work with many groups that do outdoor events and they were absolutely one of the best! From their friendly staff to easy to access location, they were great to work with and the couple had a great time! I would recommend their venue to anyone interested in their location!
