    The BEST Experience! Love The Community House!!

    The Community House was the only wedding venue my husband and I toured and we instantly fell in love. The venue is stunning, the food was amazing, and the staff is incredible! We had to postpone our reception 3 times and the staff was SO accommodating and made the postponing process seamless. Lauren Timmerman was great to work with, so responsive, and made our day stress free. All of our guests are still raving about the venue, staff, and the food. Highly recommend The Community House — you won’t regret it!

    Beautiful, delicious, responsive

    Our experience with The Community House was great! We were able to do a FaceTime tour and booked before we’d visited in person. We did experience a couple of changes in point-people, but all were lovely and responsive, and we were just thrilled with the coordinator, Lauren. She and the team handled minor hiccups smoothly. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented, and the chef and team were very accommodating to dietary needs and changes in the menu to add food and bar options when we risked not meeting the minimums due to COVID affecting our guest count. They even packed up a couple of slices of our cutting cake to bring home with us! Everyone was great on the day of, the service was fantastic, and the venue was a very pleasant place to get ready for, and celebrate, our wedding. We highly recommend The Community House.

    We highly recommend the Community House

    We had our daughters wedding here and can't say enough. We had to change the date and they accommodated us with everything. Tim Hunt worked with us throughout. If we had a question he was right on it. I have to say he helped to make this day very special. Also our guests were very impressed, said the venue was beautiful and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend The Community House! Thank you to Tim, the Chef and all of the staff.
