Amazing, perfect location
Our wedding at Switzer Farm was fun and enjoyable, and was so much more than I imagined it could be. Switzer Farm was the perfect backdrop to the occasion for us, and all our guests were blown away by the property, view and restoration of the farm. We held a relatively small wedding with 32 adults and 2 babies, and had booked the venue knowing there was a chance of rain. Indeed it rained almost all weekend but that did not bother us much, as the place is as beautiful in perfect sunny weather as it is in cloudy, foggy or even stormy weather. Due to the rain we moved our lunch indoors into the living and dining rooms, leaving the kitchen open for chefs and servers. We used a 15 minute window when the rain lightened up to hold our ceremony in the garden, but our backup plan to hold it on the veranda would have worked as well.Sent on 04/17/2019
Half of our guests stayed on the property, and there was plenty of space in the house for us to comfortably cook and hang out during the days before the wedding. The other half of our guests stayed in Westport's BnB/inns and had a great stay as well.
Gary, the owner of Switzer Farm, was an amazing host who was always very communicative and responsive. We had a good time working with him during the planning stages, and he was also quick in answering our questions during the weekend itself.
We'd booked the venue without seeing it first, and it was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. I highly recommend anyone who's considering Switzer Farm to book the venue, it is as beautiful, if not more, than in the photos.

Beautiful but remote location, so preparation and planning are key. We did hit a couple snags but all were resolved very quickly. Overall the experience was exactly what we wanted and would definitely recommend.Sent on 03/28/2019
