Amazing venue. Besides being beautiful the staff was always endlessly helpful. They were accommodating with my time of arrival all the way to the end of the night. The venue allows guests to wander the grounds, sit by the fire, explore the house, or dance the night away. I know all of my guests had a great time because of this. Food was amazing and no one left hungry and I’ve gotten endless compliments on my cake. Just note if you have the ceremony there you will need to provide your own mic/speaker. I didn’t know this and some guests couldn’t hear us during the ceremonySent on 08/08/2019

Most friendly and helpful staff...food amazing!!!
Our daughter Lindsey and her husband Scott got married on March 23, 2019, and it was such a beautiful and magical day. We had the best experience w/Knowlton planning our daughter's wedding. Everyone we dealt with was kind, helpful and professional. The food was insanely delicious and cake so amazing...I loved the cake so much, I ate leftover cake for the entire week after weeding:)...The best venue ever...you felt as if you were in a warm home with gorgeous details that took your breath away! Thank you so much for the wonderful memories!!!Sent on 04/16/2019

if you are thinking about choosing them, do it
You can't get better than Knowlton Mansion. From the moment we walked in we knew we wanted to get married there from the old house mansion look on the front to the rustic vintage ballroom on the back and the awesome patio space it was the one. Once we chose it we never looked back. Lori was wonderful responding to all my various emails in a professional and timely manner. I asked to stop by the venue a few times before my big day and they were extremely accommodating. On my wedding day they truly made all my dreams come true with not one thing that went wrong. They were extremely professional and kind. They accommodating the fact that I cannot eat gluten with gluten free apps, dinner, and a gluten free wedding cake. I continue to get complements on how awesome the venue was as well as how amazingly delicious the food was. I truly cannot recommend them enough.Sent on 06/02/2019
Great Staff, Venue and Fabulous Food. Work with this Venue numerous times throughout the Year.
Very polite and easy to work with. Beautiful location and would recommend to all!
I had the pleasure of once again officiating at a wedding at Knowlton Mansion last night. I was so impressed. The place looked so beautiful, inside and out and the cocktail hour food that I tasted was fabulous and abundant. The staff was all professional and approachable. I love recommending Knowlton Mansion to brides when they ask. I look forward to marrying my next couple there!
