Due to Covid we had to postpone our wedding first and then change our venue completely at the last minute from MA to CT. I just made a list of places to call and Sandy answered and said she had my date open. We met with her a few hours later and loved the venue. She was super nice and accommodating and she made everything so simple. She always said "no problem" and at first I'll be honest I was skeptical. But seriously it was "no problem"! Everything was beautiful even in a tent, being outdoors, and during a pandemic. She understood my decorating style and it was simply beautiful. The staff worked so well together I can't say enough good things about Giunmarco, otherwise known as "G". He was by our side the whole night he knew when we needed something, he's super polite and he even knew how to bustle my dress! We received nothing but complements about the food especially the prime rib, people actually said they have not had a piece of prime rib that good in years. Also, we had open bar and due to Covid it was table service but it went great. Lets just say no one was thirsty. We received nothing but complements from our guests and even our vendors on how well the day went. If I could do it all over again I would do it at Maneeley's! Thank you so much to you and your staff, everything was amazing! Hats of to Bruce for food, especially that prime rib!Sent on 09/16/2020

Thank you Maneeleys!
I got married at Maneeleys on 9/13 and I could not recommend this venue enough! Sandy was very responsive and accommodating from the day we booked last June, throughout the COVID uncertainty and even the night before with last minute changes! My now husband and I worked very hard to make sure our wedding would be safe for all of our guests and Maneeleys went above and beyond to put the safety of our guests as the #1 priority as well. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and how professional and friendly the staff were. I must admit, I fell in love with the venue because of how incredible the Grand Lodge is so I was a little disappointed knowing we would be having an outdoor tented wedding instead but when I arrived at the venue the morning of I began to sob because of how gorgeous the set up in and around the tent was. If we had to do it over, we wouldn't change a single thing. It was truly the best day of our lives. Thank you to Maneeleys and Sandy, and a special shout out to our attendant, G., who took extra care of my husband and I throughout the night!Sent on 09/15/2020

Where do I even begin?! From start to finish Maneely’s was absolutely wonderful to work with. Sandy and Rebecca are a dream team. We had our ceremony in the Banquet room and the reception in the lodge. The location was easy to get to and the lodge was BEAUTIFUL. Both women were so accommodating to our wants and needs. We got our cake from Modern Pastry which was INCLUDED in the price of the venue and it was delicious! The food was amazing and everyone we talked to said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The drinks were also amazing. We had one man, G, who was our go-to guy throughout the night and he was on top of everything!! We had snacks and drinks brought to us all night. He even packed up all of the decor and put it in the back of my car. I can’t stress enough the high quality of service that Maneely’s offers. If I were to do this all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.Sent on 01/22/2020
I absolutely love to work at Maneeley's Banquets! The property has two beautiful rooms which offer their own unique style for receptions and the grounds are well groomed for ceremonies and a variety of photo opportunities. The menu options are delicious and well prepared. I applaud the owner, Bruce and the banquet manager, Sandy for going above and beyond the norm for their clients and their vendors!
What a beautiful venue!! It is a pleasure to provide our photo booth at this venue. The staff and the food are great!!! They go the extra mile!!
This place is very beautiful and wonderful staff works there. Very recommended.
