About The Whitcomb House

The Whitcomb House Bed & Breakfast is conveniently located in Essex Junction, VT - we are a family owned and operated farmhouse located on 250 acres of beautiful meadows, river and views of both Mount Mansfield and Camel's Hump.  Our 1848 farmhouse was renovated several years ago with country charm and many special touches for our guests to feel at home.  We are pleased to offer two wedding venue's here - one that is riverside under a tent or in our rustic barn.


The Whitcomb House is in a picturesque setting and exactly what you think of when you dream of a Vermont wedding.  Each wedding is unique and designed to our bride and groom's needs therefore we are able to offer many packages to choose from and we're not a venue that requires you rent the entire property and no restrictions on caterers.

The Whitcomb House is amazing! The barn where our reception was so big and made everything flow together. Marie is such an amazing person to work with as well. If you had questions she would get right back to you. Or if you needed suggestions she would have them.

Beautiful field that backs up to river for ceremony and big red barn for reception. The price for the space seemed right, it was much more cost effective compared to other venues in Chittenden County. From the very beginning Marie was responsive, helpful and flexible. The cost was around $2,800 for the space, which included the barn and field. Tables/chairs, getting ready space and b&b were an additional charge. Worth it for convenience sake, but not cheap compared to other vendors in the area. The round tables were great. But many of the chairs were dirty and the tables were in rough shape. Not having seen them until the day before, I ended up using them and they were fine. But they could def use an upgrade/cleaning of the rentals, they've been over used. It was great to find a venue that didn't have 'preferred' vendors as well. It gave us the flexibility to use whoever we wanted. Marie didn't do much with our vendors before the wedding. On the day of she was around but not intrusive. We only ran into one miscommunication about having candles in the barn and the day before our wedding, I had to change everything from real candles to LED. Which was fine, but affected the light within the barn. I don't recommend paying them to clean up - it was not worth the $300 I paid. All they did was pile all our stuff by the barn door, no organization. They also made a couple rookie mistakes: threw out our paper lanterns, put some of our linens in with rented ones and our leftover liquor from the bar disappeared. All in all everything was amazing, ease of having a local flexible venue.

Marie was perfect. She was so helpful and very responsive to all our needs throughout the wedding planning process. The barn for our wedding was amazing. We received so many compliments on the venue. Working with Marie Whitcomb was a pleasure and very comfortable.

We highly recommend The Whitcomb House to anyone planning a wedding.

The landscape for the photos were amazing.
