Surrounded by ponds, streams, and waterfalls, this estate can provide the perfect backdrop to your wedding photographs. The Green Mountains of southern Vermont are within walking distance of the venue and provide a picturesque view from the windows of the house. This 254-year-old home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was established in 1769.

A Must Book Hidden Gem

I’ve been trying to come up with what to say about our wedding weekend at the Henry House and part of me has been putting off writing this review because it feels like the closing chapter of one of the most special journeys my husband and I have embarked on and the other part of me is just at a complete loss for words for how incredible our time was there. Back in December 2020, as we began discussing our engagement, I started exploring local venues on Zola and stumbled upon The Henry House. To our amazement, it was right in North Bennington, and we had never even heard of it – a true hidden gem!

In January 2021, we scheduled a tour and were instantly charmed, not only by the historic homestead but also by our fantastic tour guide, Tom Sklepowicz. Believe it or not, we fell so in love with the place that we booked it before we were even officially engaged! Unlike many wedding venues today that require setup and tear down in one day, The Henry House offered so much more. It provided a place for family and friends to stay for the entire weekend, which was an absolute blessing.

Throughout the entire planning process, owner Rebecca proved to be extremely communicative and helpful. The Sklepowicz family was there every step of the way to ensure that our wedding weekend ran without a hitch. Our guests were truly in awe of the beautiful grounds, from the charming chapel in the woods to the perfect cocktail hour area on the upper patio, complete with an adorable corn crib converted into a bar.

With a full bridal suite and a massive homestead, along with an additional red barn Airbnb to rent, there was plenty of room for our families and bridal parties, as well as space for both partners to get ready on the property. The option to host our rehearsal dinner and even a farewell event on the property was a bonus, and their extensive vendor lists helped us find the perfect teams to complete our special day.

Our time at The Henry House was an absolute dream and an experience that we consider truly priceless. If you're wondering if this wedding venue is the right fit for you, trust us – it is!

Even more amazing, during the off-season, you can rent the house or barn as Airbnb accommodations for a special way to reminisce about your day with family and friends. We are certainly planning to do this at some point!

One Happy Bride

There are not enough words to describe how incredibly special my wedding day was with The Henry House. Rebecca and her entire family truly made us feel at home the entire time we were there. The property was absolutely stunning, so well taken care of, spacious, and decorated so beautifully. We were lucky enough to spend our entire wedding weekend with our friends and family at the HH and we just didn't want to leave! I can't wait to see all the HH has to offer in the coming years and will for sure be staying here again. Thank you SO much!!

Highly recommend!

I can't say enough positive things about The Henry House! When my now-husband and I were looking at wedding venues, we knew this would be the perfect place to get married. Not only is it a beautiful location, but the people who run The Henry House are incredibly kind, responsive, professional, and helpful. We had the freedom to choose where our outdoor ceremony and reception would take place, and there are plenty of places to choose from (the heart-shaped pond, between two tall trees, in the woods, on a bridge... the possibilities were endless!). Our wedding was this past weekend, and all of our guests were raving about how beautiful the property is. The corn crib made for a perfect bar for cocktail hour, and the patio with the 14 foot stone fireplace was a great hangout spot. Plus there's a quintessential red covered bridge across the street, which makes for another perfect spot for photos.

Rebecca was our day-of coordinator, and was so helpful and flexible - especially when the weather was really iffy and I was stressing about having an outdoor wedding! Not only are the grounds beautiful, but both the main house and the cottage were the perfect places for our bridesmaids and groomsmen to stay. It's clear how much pride goes into every aspect of running The Henry House. Ask Rebecca or Tom about all of their projects they completed. They'll amaze you with their talent and depth of knowledge!

If you're looking to book this place for your wedding, or just to get away for a weekend, I'd recommend booking ASAP!
