    I sent an initial email to the Sturbridge Host Hotel in September 2013, looking to get more information about their wedding packages. My husband and I didn't end up getting married there until June 2016.

    There were a few staff changes over the course of the time we worked with the hotel, but everybody was always super friendly and willing to work with us to help make sure the day was exactly the way we envisioned it. Rebecca and her staff were SO easy to work with. She sometimes took a day or two to respond to emails, but always apologized and responded back with ALL of the information I'd requested.

    The forecast was a little iffy for wedding day, but Rebecca kept me in the loop the entire time and let me be part of the decision making process. We decided to move everything inside at the last minute, but she and her team pulled it off and many of our guests didn't even realize that that was the backup plan! She was there for anything and everything on wedding day - she even ran across the street to pick up lunch for us so that no one's hair got ruined in the rain!

    We planned our wedding for much longer than most couples are even engaged, but Rebecca never once made us feel weird about it. She loved that many of our ideas were "offbeat" or otherwise outside the box. Everybody we dealt with the entire weekend was so friendly - one of the servers even went into the kitchen to fill my MOH's water bottle when we couldn't find anything besides a vending machine!

    Accommodations-wise, everything was as expected. We LOVED the balcony and had our first married coffee together overlooking the lake. The grass was well maintained and the parking lot was clean. We knew that wedding food would be delicious, but the breakfast buffet was equally satisfying.

    We were here several times for other events before the wedding and will DEFINITELY be back again.

    We had a winter wedding reception at the Sturbridge Host after an off-location wedding ceremony. Working with the staff in the planning phase was pretty worry-free, even with a staff change about a month before the wedding, everything went off without a hitch! We had our cocktail hour in the courtyard and reception in the ballroom which was beautiful. We lucked out with a beautiful day in December and even got gorgeous pictures outside in front of the lake! We really enjoyed the "all inclusive" value of having our wedding at the Host, including the plated meal, champagne toast, the cake cutting, set-up of our personalized wedding decor/centerpieces etc. as well as having our own private suite for our bridal party cocktail hour and for the night of the wedding.

    My husband and I decided to look at the Host Hotel after 6 different people recommended it to us, and I could not be happier that we ultimately chose to have our wedding here. The hotel offered a beautiful outdoor venue for both our ceremony and reception, as well as our rehearsal dinner and after-party.

    Our favorite things about the Host Hotel were that 1) it came with a reception tent to provide shelter from the sun or rain (no extra charge) and had several beautiful indoor rain back-up spaces, 2) it came with an awesome wedding planner, who helped us figure out details we had not even considered, and who stayed nearby throughout our ceremony and reception to help the event go smoothly, 3) it was very flexible in allowing us to change our head count, contract, and even our wedding date when unexpected changes occurred (they even grandfathered us into an old menu that we had chosen but they no longer offered by the time we got married), 4) it didn't lock us into choosing any specific vendors, 5) it was much more affordable than most outdoor venues we had looked at, including state parks, and 6) the catering cost included almost everything--linens, silverware, glassware, champagne, table numbers, a cake cutting knife, decorations, and even centerpieces.

    The food was AWESOME (as many of guests raved about), and the outdoor settings for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were beautiful. Throughout the wedding, the wedding planner kept checking in with me to make sure that everything was going smoothly, and helped remind my husband and I what traditional things we were doing in what order (because our brains were jelly by the reception). After the wedding, we had an after-party at a firepit that we had rented outside of our honeymoon suite, which was free on the night of our wedding and had an enormous living room for everyone to hang out in. It was a blast, and was the perfect way to keep the party rolling and unwind a bit following the wedding.
