We could not have found a more perfect venue for our daughter's Vermont wedding than Tourterelle! Christine was wonderful to work with, beginning with our first meeting, throughout the months of planning, and on the day of the wedding. She was always gracious, responsive, and positive, and we could not have been more thrilled with every aspect of the wedding!Sent on 09/03/2018
As you can see from the photos below, Tourterelle is a magnificent spot - the ceremony by the pond, the outdoor area - perfect for cocktails and socializing after the ceremony, the beautiful barn, which provided a lovely setting for the reception, and the outdoor area adjacent to the barn (which we covered with a tent), which was perfect for dancing. The bonus: all of these spots come with lovely mountain views looking East and West!!
Tourterelle is not just a perfect setting... Christine and her husband, Bill, who is the chef, own Tourterelle, and they made a point of working with us to make very aspect of the wedding perfect for us! The food was delicious, the bar was supplied with everything we requested, and the staff was friendly and attentive!
We are so glad we chose Tourterelle, and we would highly recommend it for your Vermont wedding!

Spectacular venue for out of state wedding
We live in San Francisco and wanted to have a rustic wedding in VT that would be fun for our guests from all over the world to attend, but would still be reasonably priced. I initially didn't even look into Tourterelle because I thought it was so beautiful that it would be too expensive, but it turned out to be the same price as other less inspiring venues. I honestly felt like I won the lottery of wedding venues. It was incredibly easy to plan with Christine from remote and I never even saw the place until week of. Pictures don't really capture how beautiful this place is. Here's why Tourterelle is the BEST:Sent on 07/28/2019
1. Incredibly beautiful, a place you would not be remiss to host guests flying in internationally
2. Christine is extremely professional, organized, flexible, so really easy to coordinate. I never felt worried about whether my day would be executed flawlessly and I was right! This peace of mind was so important because I was so overwhelmed with everything else. I didn't have a wedding planner and working with Christine before and day off was actually the easiest part of planning my wedding.
3. AMAZING food. Everybody was raving about how good the food was. Especially the chicken and mushroom ravioli!
4. Fantastic value, so reasonably priced
5. For summer weddings, they have AC!
I seriously love this place forever and can't wait to come back every time I visit Vermont. My wedding day was flawless and beautiful beyond expectations.

the most dreamsy
we didn't even consider any other venues-- we booked tourterelle based on it's situation between 2 mountain ranges and based on its FOOD. it has my favorite food in Vermont. its menu is so creative and elegant, but also so unpretentious and straight up yums. if you care about your guests enjoying themselves, food is critical-- they literally don't give a hoot about anything else, and tourterelle is destined to be delicious every time. it's slow, purposeful elements that make every meal so memorable.Sent on 07/26/2019
we were blessed with a really weatherly perfect day, but we were also blessed with a wonderful wedding coordinator, whitney. she comes with the venue, and she's an in real life angel. she's so sweet, patient, thoughtful, smart, and she cares about getting it exactly right for you. I gave her pretty minimal direction because i'm a clueless person in general, and I just trusted her, and im glad I did. she made it all happen; I just showed up. and that's exactly what I damn well wanted. thank you, whitney!
I have no regrets about our wedding day-- it was so fun, peaceful, and wild, and that was in large part due to the staff at tourterelle and the little mountain barn grotto they provide. thank you, my stars.
