    Look no where else

    What can I say about Janet and her team at The Mansion!? Janet was always one email or phone call away, answered all of my questions and always gracious and kind. You can see/feel the excitement she has for you. Don't look anywhere else book this place, its beautiful outdoor garden space and then inside the hall where you have these beautiful wooden beams to eat and dance the night away. The day of our wedding Janet was there to help out in any way. Her staff were kind and had food out in a blink of an eye, passing appetizers and drinks. I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you so much for making our night (and planning) so magical.

    We booked this venue 10 days before the wedding!

    The Mansion at Bald Hill hosted our daughter's wedding reception recently. We cannot say enough about the experience we had there! The food was delicious, and it was served by a professional, polite wait staff. The ambiance was amazing. The cocktail hour was outside on the patio. The guests loved the fire pit! The dining room was beautiful and comfortable, accommodating our 86 guests, no more than 6 per table, which were 6 feet apart. Dancing was outside in a tent with a 6 piece band. Two weeks before the wedding, we never thought our daughter's and son-in-law's special day could look like this. Their wedding reception was originally planned at a venue in MA, but the Covid guidelines changed on 8/11, reducing outdoor gatherings in MA to 50 people, from 100 people. We had already reduced the size of the wedding from 200 to 100, back in July when the guidelines were changed initially. The church was in Worcester, MA, so we were able to travel to this venue in CT, where the guidelines allowed us to have close to the 100 we had planned for. We would have had to cancel the wedding if we had to keep it to 50, because our family is larger than 50, and we could not leave out family. Janet came to our rescue, after I reached out to her on August 11. She made this magical day happen in 10 days, as if she had a year in advance to plan it! She is amazing-so easy to work with, so professional and efficient and couldn't do enough for us to make it the wedding they always dreamed of! This venue is a gem!

    The Mansion at Bald Hill's reply:

    We are so happy to have been apart of their special day! We are happy to have been of assistance during this crazy time. We wish them all the best on their marriage!
    Best,
    The Mansion at Bald Hill
