About The North House

The North House, a 250 year old Connecticut gem which has always been a cherished social landmark, is also one of the state’s most sought after event venues.

The Belle Ballroom immediately impresses its guests from the columned porte-cochere, to the grand foyer with sweeping staircase and crystal chandelier. Traditional, sophisticated style is present throughout. The beautiful brick terrace with custom pergola provides a stunning backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. Richly painted walls, shining guilded mirrors. ivory linens, chiavari chairs, gleaming silver place settings and sparkling stemware heighten the superb five star dining experience in the Belle Ballroom.

This venue is owned by the Chabot family who own Farmington Gardens. This was formerly Belle Terrace and Avon Old Farms Inn.

    Our day was perfect!!

    Our special day was amazing here!! The coordinator Jacqui was the best! From the meetings to the tasting to all the questions through emails, everything was handled perfectly. Our day was stress free, Jacqui was on top of everything. Everyone was so nice and attentive. They got us craft beers for our big day which we loved too! The place is beautiful and a plus is having a hotel across the street that was also great.

    Best Venue and Coordinator Ever

    The North House was the first venue that my husband and I visited when we started our wedding planning and it was the best decision we made. Jacqui made planning our wedding so much easier with her expertise. Not only would she help us stay on track with things we needed, she was always available to answer any questions that we had. Jacqui made planning our wedding so much fun, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again in a heartbeat. In addition, my mother STILL raves about how beautiful The North House is. Five stars isn't nearly enough to express how much we loved working with Jacqui and The North House staff!

Katie Glass

Katie Glass

Wedding & Event Coordinator

Katie gets her love of event planning from her mother, who ALWAYS made sure her birthday parties included goody bags!

She's planned all kinds of events, from screenings and seminars, to friend birthday parties (ask her about her friend's birthday party where they celebrated the 25th anniversary of their 5th birthdays, which included a bounce house!), and bridal and baby showers.

As her niece says, "Nobody loves a party like you, Aunt Katie!"

Katie's been with The North House since July of 2020 and is very much looking forward to working with brides and on special events in 2021 and beyond!
