    We got married at the Montague Retreat Center two weeks ago. We could not have imagined a better venue for the wedding weekend that we'd envisioned, nor a more helpful, kind, and accommodating group than Bill, Beth, and John. We would *highly* recommend this venue to others.

    It's hard to know where to start. To begin with, it's just such a beautiful venue surrounded by beautiful scenery and even some hiking paths that leave from the back gate. And the barn is just magical--especially lit up at night.

    We loved the feel of the venue, which we took to be "warm," "laid back," and "communal." That's what we were going for with our wedding, so it was a perfect fit. It was great to be able to show up early in the week to start setting things up and to not feel pressured to leave early on Sunday morning. We loved the decorations closet, which is yours to raid to re-use anything that others have left behind that you like. We rented the rooms that are part of the venue, which made the whole space feel more like "home" for the week than just a venue. They've done an incredible job of turning this space into a wedding venue, and there all kinds of little nooks, crannies, and quirks that make it come alive.

    Bill, Beth, and John are also just really easy to work with. They were super responsive, friendly, and kind throughout, and go out of their way to accommodate any one-off requests. The venue comes with nearly everything already--tent, chairs, audio equipment, etc.--and their team does almost all of the setup and cleanup work, too. You rest easy knowing that there's a team taking care of so much.

    I've included just a few pictures, since we haven't gotten ours back from our photographers yet. Seriously, you want to get married here.

    What a fantastic place the retreat center is. It is simply great and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed every event we held there for our wedding celebration (4 events over 4 days). The premise has a beautiful barn ideal for dancing, a spacious tent which can be used as dinning room (we had 125 people sitting comfortably). The barn also has a lovely ceremony circle where you can celebrate your wedding ceremony. The owners, Bill and Beth, are extremely organized and they are very helpful in terms of planning and executing all the events related to the weeding. The really make a very stressful event very smooth and easy. Our experience was fantastic and we advise anyone who is thinking of using this venue for their wedding to go and see it and fall in love with it. After talking to Bill and Beth you will know what we mean. Gwen and Luis.
