About The Country House

"Make your moment memorable with Seasons"

The newly renovated Seasons both inside and out formerly known as Country House is a wedding and event venue with more than five decades of service. Owner James Esposito transformed The Country House in 1980 after taking over the facility from his parents who ran it as a restaurant beginning in 1959. Since that time, the Esposito family has extended their warmth, dedication, and unparalleled service to guests.

Located conveniently between interstates 91 and 95 in East Haven, CT, The Country House is just minutes from downtown New Haven and many points along the Connecticut shore. Our venue offers affordability and convenience with top-notch cuisine and service. We hold only one event at a time so that we can provide undivided, personal attention to our guests. Bridal consultant Olivia Quiello guides couples planning their weddings at The Country House through every step of the process.

The Country House is traditionally decorated and features a cocktail lounge accented in warm mahogany. When the New England temperatures dip outside, our two fireplaces are ablaze providing warmth and simple elegance.

Our cuisine is expertly prepared by executive chef Joe Onorato and his team. They are known for creating delicious hors d’oeuvres and entrées and are always happy to customize your menu. We offer many special options ranging from specialty coffees, such as cappuccino, espresso and lattés, to frozen drinks.

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Country House this past weekend 12/30/2017. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we only had 2 months to plan for it. Throughout the process, Jimmy, Renee, Olivia and Linda took care of us with great planning, organization, and professionalism. They accommodated ALL of our requests (even the most outlandish), particularly with decor, to help ensure our wedding venue goals were met. And they were..simply magical! Led by the supervision and care of the phenomenal Banquet Manager Linda and her staff, our guests were treated better than words can describe. I highly recommend the Country House (soon to be called Seasons). Thank you for making our wedding so wonderful! - The McLeans

We just had our wedding on Friday the 29th and it was such a great experience. Both the staff and Olivia did a wonderful job. The woman who ran the whole night did such a great job and I can't for the life of me remember her name but she was more than wonderful. The food was plentiful and delicious and I have been getting text and phone calls all weekend with people raving about the venue and how they had a great experience. It was decorated beautifully I can't say enough the bar was top notch the bartender was great she always had a smile? on her face the atmosphere was just great we had not one complaint. We would more then recommend the venue for ceremony and reception
