    A gem in Berkshire County!

    If you are looking for an accommodating, beautiful, and fun place to host your wedding - look no further than the Orchards Hotel. When we first started venue shopping we knew we wanted to host our wedding at a location that would allow us to have the ceremony and reception on site, and ideally a place where our guests could stay as well. Not only does the Orchards check all of those boxes, Janet and her team went above and beyond to make sure everything on our wedding day ran as smooth as possible. She met with us multiple times during the planning process, helped us coordinate all of our vendor arrivals/drop offs, and even helped us walk through the rehearsal the day before. She was an invaluable resource, and made us (and our guests) feel extremely well taken care of. The food prepared by the Orchards’ chef was delicious, and they handled our guests various dietary restrictions without any issues. The reception was the most fun I have ever had! We knew we wanted to have a big dance floor, and the staff helped us set up the room so we could maximize dancing space and keep our guests comfortable. Janet even helped us set up “after party” space for our guests who wanted to keep the festivities going after the reception ended. The only small snag during our planning was some initial confusion around our room block - but both Janet and GM Janell worked with us to make sure every one of our guests had the agreed upon rate and helped ensure that they were all taken care of. Our guests (many of whom live in Berkshire County) could not stop talking about what a hidden gem the Orchards Hotel is!

    The Orchards Hotel's reply:

    Thank you Gabrielle, it was our honor to host your wedding. Making the wedding vision come to life for you and Joe was a pleasure. Your friends and family were lovely guests and we are pleased to have made your wedding a wonderful memory everyone will keep for years to come.

    Amazing and professional

    We just wanted to send you a quick and huge thank you for everything the Orchards did for us on our wedding day. I can’t express in words how absolutely amazing and beautiful everything was. It was perfection and we couldn’t be happier with everything. Everybody 
    has said nothing but amazing things about the food and how beautiful the venue was. I don’t think I will ever be able to thank you for everything you did for us on our special day. Once again, thank you for helping us have a beautiful and perfect wedding day. We are forever grateful for that and for you and all the staff at the Orchards!
