About

On WeddingWire since 2015

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.

Great experience

We got married this past May here at the North House and couldn't be happier with our choice! The food and service were great! We had guests after the wedding complimenting how good the food was!
I looked at quite a few venues before finding the North House and what stood out from day one from the rest was Tracy the event coordinator and how flexible/ accommodating this venue was compared to others that we went to.
Tracy is AWESOME and such a pleasure to work with!! She was super responsive, friendly, and helpful throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond to make sure our wedding went as smooth as possible - from fitting us in to a taste testing last minute to decorating everything for us the day of! We really can't compliment her enough!

The North House compared to other venues we looked at was also much more reasonable with their pricing options for different days of the week/ time of year. You really can't beat some of the prices for the quantity and quality of the food and bar service that they offer! They are also flexible with allowing some changes to the menu which was nice and are accommodating to food allergies. Another great thing about this venue is that they only host one wedding per day so timing for the day is flexible as well!

We'd definitely recommend!

Beyond Amazing

The North House Restaurant is an amazing place to have a wedding reception and/or dinner. With all that has been going on in 2020 with COVID, this team worked with us each step of the way to follow the ever changing guidelines to keep us and our families safe while also keeping the night beautiful, special, and fun.

The manager, Dylan Reis is phenomenal at his job. He is so welcoming and friendly. Dylan was more than generous with his time as my parents, my husband, and I would stop by, text, and email him because things were constantly changing with COVID. He stayed calm and helped us through each new obstacle. Dylan guided us through the planning process from selecting the menu, the table arrangements, the timeline of our night, and the decorations. He even got there early in the morning to set up their separate event building for me and my bridesmaids to get ready in. During our dinner he was constantly coordinating with the chef, servers, and us to help the night go smoothly. Dylan is a wonderful person to work with. He made our day so special and memorable. Thanks to him we were able to relax and enjoy our day!

The food was beyond excellent. It is the best food we have ever had. The chef is incredibly talented at her work. We have eaten at The North House many times previous to our wedding and have never been less than amazed at our meal. She is a remarkable chef. This was part of the reason we wanted to have our wedding dinner at The North House in the first place. The day of our wedding was no exception. Every dish was perfectly prepared and cooked. Everyone was blown away by how delicious the food was. The food was a definite highlight for us and our families! We were beyond happy with the meals!

The baker Katrina did an amazing job on our wedding cake and desserts. Due to COVID, I requested a cake a week before the wedding. I was worried having to plan it so last minute, but she was so courteous and understanding of our situation. She spent time on the phone talking to me about our options. Day of our wedding, the cake looked even better than the photos I had sent her and tasted AMAZING! We chose coconut cream and we have never had a cake so delicious. Our wedding cake was more than I could have dreamed for. She also made the cheesecake and creme brûlée desserts for the wedding dinner which were also a huge hit. She is so gifted and talented. We were so happy with how everything turned out!

The entire team at The North House did an amazing job. Sean was our bartender for the night and he made each drink to everyone’s liking. He had anything you could ever want. The people on staff for serving that night were also absolutely wonderful. They were quick to take orders and deliver the food and drinks. They were so kind, fun, and efficient. Even before the wedding day when I was setting up some decorations the servers stopped by and introduced themselves to me. They were so happy and excited to be a part of our special day and that enthusiasm was contagious! Our waitress that night always made sure our drinks were full and consistently checked in with my husband and I to see if we were done with our food and wanted anything boxed. I heard the same raves about the other servers that night from our family. We are so grateful for their hard work and contagious excitement. It made the atmosphere of the night so much fun and relaxing for everyone.

I could talk about our experience with The North House team for days. All I can say to them is thank you for making our wedding day more than we ever dreamed of. We had a wonderful night and are so grateful! We will never forget the kindness you all showed us.

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.
