    Our 5/5/18 wedding at the Chalfonte was a blast! We were sold on the history and character of the hotel, and Terry and her staff really delivered on the rest. Terry was a breeze to work with - her even-keeled manner was very reassuring leading up to and on the day of the event. She was great about recommending different options and flexible with our special requests. And in addition, she made all the right decisions when we didn’t know what to do (like where to put all the random decorations and homemade desserts that kept multiplying in the days leading up to the event). Our guests raved about the charm of the venue and the food was great, too. And if you’re on the fence about the post wedding breakfast, go for it. It was an unexpected highlight for us - both for the amazing spread of delicious food and the chance to recap with friends and family about how great the wedding was.

    Our wedding at the Chalfonte was perfect! I live abroad and had to schedule appointments around my trips to the States in the months leading up to the wedding. Terry Carr was always available and willing to accommodate, even in the middle of winter when the hotel was closed! Terry was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and took care of details like ordering special wine to accompany dinner and having the servers pass out chocolate covered strawberries after the cake was cut. She coordinated with our various vendors and month-of planner and we did not have to worry about anything except enjoying our day. My Italian fiancé and his family were very impressed with the service and the food, which says it all, as Italians have very high standards! The appetizers were delicious, as were the entrees. Everything was plentiful and no one went home hungry. The venue is perfect, from the front porch for cocktail hour, to the beautiful dining room. The Chalfonte will always be a special place for us!

    The Chalfonte Hotel was the absolute perfect location for our wedding reception. The staff was incredibly helpful, enthusiastic and accommodating! From the cocktail hour on the porch to the amazing sit-down dinner to the last dance- the night was perfect. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I highly recommend the Chalfonte!!
