An expansive outdoor deck provides a breathtaking waterfront view as well as additional space for entertaining guests or those much-needed meeting breaks. Open the doors and windows in the spring and summer and enjoy the gentle sounds of the river and a breath of fresh air indoors. In the winter, watch the snow fall onto the frozen falls of the river.

Such a beautiful location for our reception, great service and professionalism! We rented the whole Loft are for our reception. It was great to have a private bar for our party. The space looked so glamorous with the Simon Pearce glasses decorating all our tables. The food, drinks and service were 5 stars! Everybody had such an amazing time. Simon Pearce staff will make your wedding special and help you through-out the process. Our direct contact was with Rose Dulac and she was extra attentive and made the process of working out the details so smooth and gratifying. We had them make our wedding cake and it was spectacular! The Loft area was just a beautiful setting for our cocktail hour and dancing time!Sent on 06/16/2017

Even though Simon Pearce was hit by a hurricane, they were able to provide everything I needed for the wedding. We did have a bit of trouble getting a hold of their event planner, but everything sorted itself out, and by the day of, it was set up perfectly. We were able to hold the ceremony and reception in The Loft, and the decor, food, service, and general attitude of the staff was impeccable.Sent on 01/09/2012

We planned the timing of our engagement around booking Simon Pearce for our reception. I remember the day, over three years before our wedding day, that I told my then-boyfriend that I had an idea for where we should have our reception. I showed him a few pictures. He was silent. I ended the slideshow and asked, "So?" He didn't hesitate: "It's perfect."Sent on 10/29/2012
And it really was! The cocktail reception was in the gallery of Simon Pearce glasswork upstairs -- so bright and bold and natural! A true taste of New England, but in a refined and dramatic way. Then, the magical Loft room came alive for our dinner. Imagine eating world class food on your wedding day instead of no-hum buffet food! Everything was delicious, and our guests thanked us for it. Service was wonderful. And the beverage manager even took a special trip to Massachusetts to get us some cider from my hometown -- an amazing personal touch.
Simon Pearce was so accommodating and set just about everything up for us. You should be aware that you can't have full-scale dancing in the reception room, which is right over the main restaurant, but they will let you move to the gallery again for dancing. But, our band set up easily and we were able to do our first dance, father-daughter dance, and mother-son dance in the room no problem. And there was PLENTY of space for our 70-person wedding. This place is perfect for small weddings like ours or rehearsal dinners.
Thank you, Simon Pearce, for helping our dream come true!
What a wonderful setting to have any event, the Vermont feel, the river...it's all there!
