Sandy and her team were so amazing, we can not say enough positive things about them. Throughout the whole wedding planning process Sandy was very professional, responded right away to any questions we had, and super accommodating since we lived over an hour away from the venue. She really helped make the whole process fun and relaxed and genuinely wanted us to be happy with every element of our day. During our wedding Rebecca and Logan were truly amazing. They were super attentive to our needs. Always made sure we had a full drink in hand and made sure we had plenty of food to eat. We really can't say anything negative about all of the waitstaff as they were amazing to us and our guests as well. We got married in the Grand Lodge on 9/14/18 and the venue is absolutely breathtaking. We received compliments the entire night from our guests with how beautiful everything was and they could not believe a place like this exists in Connecticut. This venue really is a hidden gem! We went with the buffet option and the food was delicious. Our guests kept talking about how much food there was and how they didn't eat anything they didn't like as it was all very delicious. We also had the mashed potato bar and they were served in little mason jars which complimented the venues theme and our guests loved it. Our wedding truly was perfect in every way and we can not recommend Maneeley's enough! If you are looking for something different, rustic, elegant, and beautiful the Grand Lodge will not disappoint!

I was so overwhelmed by the wonderful service and care we got from Maneeley's. We got married by the new gazebo and had our reception at the Grand Lodge. Sandy and Rebecca were amazing at responding to emails quickly and were very patient with us and all of our questions and requests. Sandy is incredibly detail oriented. She thought of everything. Rebecca was our day-of coordinator and didn't leave our side throughout the whole process. Logan was very attentive to our needs as well and made sure I always had a glass of my favorite rose! Our friends and family were blown away by the beautiful atmosphere and the food was out of this world. So many people told us it was the best wedding they've ever been to and that the food was amazing. My husband said the late night pizza was the best pizza he's ever had (including NYC & Italy!), the swordfish and beef were delicious, everything was. Sandy did a great job coordinating with all of our vendors so it was very easy on us. The outdoor patio/fire pit was a hit. Also I was very impressed that there was never a line at the bathroom or the bar. It was a great night and flew by way too fast!

It Was Truly The Best Day Ever
We had our Ceremony and Reception at The Grand Lodge and everything from the first meeting to the day of the wedding went without a hitch. Sandy was so helpful from day one. She was always quick to answer any questions we had. She made the entire experience stress free and Sandy was extremely organized and made sure to go over everything, even details that we hadn't thought of to make the entire day go with easy. Rebecca was extremely helpful during Rehearsal and the day of the Wedding day made sure that everything was running smoothly and that we had no worries and just enjoyed our day. Our guest can't stop raving about how amazing the food and service was and how beautiful the venue and grounds were. Even our signature drink created by Maneeley's was a huge hit. We honestly had the best day ever thanks to Sandy, Rebecca, and all the staff at Maneeley's. We still can't believe how beautiful everything looked and how perfect the day was. They went above and beyond what we imagined and hoped for our day. We are truly grateful to everyone at Maneeley's. We highly recommend!!! They also hosted two other weddings we have been to and those weddings were wonderful as well. Truly take a chance to check them out, you won't regret it!
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.
