My husband and I got married last week (April 2017) and had the Garden House as our reception space. We booked it close to two years ago since we were living on the west coast for most of the wedding planning and Jilian, the Director, was able to give us the rates when we booked it in 2015. We loved the venue for its location and beauty, there is not much decorating to do depending on our style/theme. Communication via email was fairly quick and the 24 hours leading up to the wedding was on point. I was able to come in to set up the day before and felt that I could trust Jilian and her staff to do a great job and to put my guests first the day of. The day of coordinator was also very responsive and was very helpful. I would definitely recommend the Garden House for anyone looking for an event/reception space.
The Garden House was such a wonderful venue for our wedding! Jilian was a pleasure to work with and made the process so easy. We got married in November and we were waiting on the forecast to determine whether we would have an indoor wedding or a wedding on the courtyard. We ended up with exceptionally warm weather for November and had a high of 62 so we elected to have the wedding in the courtyard and it was perfect. We added a chuppah, but the venue set up the chairs. We were a bit worried about guests being chilly so Jilian suggested that we rent heaters, which worked perfectly. Though prior reviewers mentioned issued with the staff and the bar, we had no such issues.The bar closed promptly on time, but while open the staff were friendly and responsive. The woman we worked with the day of Angela was helpful and friendly. The reception in the Garden House was gorgeous and really needs no decorations other than flowers for the tables because the venue is so stunning by itself. I highly recommend this venue for your special day!
This place is perfect!! First of all, Jilian the director is amazing and she really knows her stuff, and on top of that the amount charged to hold a wedding ceremony and reception here is literally 10% of the price of all the other venues in the area that we checked out AND it is nonprofit, which means all the money you pay goes directly to keeping the park open! Not to mention Look park is a gorgeous setting with multiple locations to hold a ceremony and reception. The garden house, should you choose to hold the reception there, has a beautiful, rustic, vintage feel. There's a stone mantle fireplace and gorgeous exposed beams. Seriously is you live in MA, CT or NY check this place out!!!
