    We booked this venue 10 days before the wedding!

    The Mansion at Bald Hill hosted our daughter's wedding reception recently. We cannot say enough about the experience we had there! The food was delicious, and it was served by a professional, polite wait staff. The ambiance was amazing. The cocktail hour was outside on the patio. The guests loved the fire pit! The dining room was beautiful and comfortable, accommodating our 86 guests, no more than 6 per table, which were 6 feet apart. Dancing was outside in a tent with a 6 piece band. Two weeks before the wedding, we never thought our daughter's and son-in-law's special day could look like this. Their wedding reception was originally planned at a venue in MA, but the Covid guidelines changed on 8/11, reducing outdoor gatherings in MA to 50 people, from 100 people. We had already reduced the size of the wedding from 200 to 100, back in July when the guidelines were changed initially. The church was in Worcester, MA, so we were able to travel to this venue in CT, where the guidelines allowed us to have close to the 100 we had planned for. We would have had to cancel the wedding if we had to keep it to 50, because our family is larger than 50, and we could not leave out family. Janet came to our rescue, after I reached out to her on August 11. She made this magical day happen in 10 days, as if she had a year in advance to plan it! She is amazing-so easy to work with, so professional and efficient and couldn't do enough for us to make it the wedding they always dreamed of! This venue is a gem!

    Absolutely beautiful

    We had to change our venue relatively last minute and everyone was so helpful with us still being able to have our wedding day.

    Outstanding Experience at the Mansion!

    Janet was fantastic in ensuring the details were covered. She was of superb support for the on scene handling of logistics. Our wedding was perfect even amidst 3 date changes due to Covid. Truly, after researching 12+ venues, we chose MBH and had a wonderful experience, would recommend the Mansion at Bald Hill for your event.

    Excellent vendor, very satisfied

    Working with Janet at The Mansion at Bald Hill was a pleasure. She made planning a COVID wedding much easier than we anticipated. She went above and beyond to ensure we were following safety guidelines while still being able to achieve our dream wedding. Also, the food was amazing! I highly recommend this venue.

    Absolutely Amazing

    I was supposed to be married back in March at a venue in Massachusetts. Due to Covid, my year long planning came to a halt days before it was all supposed to come to life. After a lengthy heart breaking ordeal with my other venue, i reached out to the Mansion with what seems like a ridiculous request. "Can you host my wedding, three weeks from today?" Janet reached out with a simple "i think i can help, ill call you tomorrow". Janet was amazing. She was responsive through the whole process and made the transition seamless. She even spent 20 minutes pinning up my dress when my bustle failed to keep my dress from under my feet. I cannot say enough about how great she and the staff is. The venue is beautiful. The wedding was beautiful. So unbelievably happy.

    Dream Come True!!

    The Mansion at Bald Hill was my dream wedding venue! We had our ceremony off site but the reception was perfect. Janet and team did a phenomenal job setting everything up exactly as I wanted and had envisioned in my head! Janet was always super flexible to meet with me and my husband. As well as very responsive on returning any of my calls and/or emails. The servers were all so nice on the wedding day. Guests had nothing but good things to say about all of them! Oh and the room that my husband and I stayed at on our wedding night was so nice! It was huge and it was really nice to have a spot right next door to freshen up after the ceremony and photos before heading to the reception. Overall couldn't say enough good things about The Mansion at Bald Hill!

    Incredible wedding venue!

    My husband and I got married at the Mansion at Bald Hill on October 20, 2019, and we had the wedding of our dreams!! The ceremony, reception and cocktail hour sites were so beautiful! Janet was so accomodating leading up to our wedding and was there for us throughout our day. She even held my dress behind me when I started walking down the aisle and the guests said they never knew she was there! The food was delicious, the portion sizes were great and the overall experience was everything we ever hoped for. I could not recommend this venue enough!!!

    Picture Perfect Venue!

    The venue was the first thing I booked after my engagement. I was looking for a modern rustic venue that held everything on site. I had looked at about 7 or 8 venues until I found the Mansion at Bald Hill. The drive to the venue was gorgeous and as soon as we pulled up to this beautiful mansion, I knew this was where we were going to get married. We held our rehearsal dinner in the mansion, the ceremony was in the beautiful garden on the grounds and cocktail hour and reception was in the AMAZING hall next to the mansion. Everything being all together was perfect and all the guests loved it. Janet was so great to work with, and she is amazing at what she does. She made sure the night was flawless and everything went perfectly. All my guests are still talking about how good the food was, and the entire atmosphere was beautiful. The Mansion at Bald Hill gave me the wedding of my dreams and there’s not one bad thing I could say!

    No words to describe how truly amazing!!

    We had our wedding at the Mansion at Bald Hill on 9/6/19. Every part of our special day was nothing short but amazing. From day one, Janet was beyond responsive and helpful in making all of my dreams/ visions come to life. On the day of our wedding the grounds were beyond pristine, the service was attentive and Janet made sure everything was taken care of before I could even think about what needed to be done next. We have been told by countless of our guests that our wedding was the most enjoyable and beautiful wedding that they had ever been too. This couldn’t have been possible without the Mansion at Bald Hill! I more than highly recommend this venue for all future brides!

    Dream wedding!

    We chose this venue for it's classic charm, seclusion and natural beauty. The grounds are stunning, and set the tone for a picturesque wedding. Not too rustic, just classic gardens. The food was delicious- we chose to do a buffet, and it was a great value. We did our cake with the suggested vendor, and it came out to our liking. The wedding coordinator was calm, flexible, and a joy to work with. All the staff was very professional, and helpful, ensuring our day went as seemless as possible. Truly was the wedding of our dreams and we are so happy we chose the mansion at bald hill!

    Magical is an understatement.

    Unbelievable experience overall. My wedding day was above and beyond my expectations. Throughout the night guests continuously mentioned how beautiful the property of the mansion is. We had ceremony in the beautiful garden, cocktail hour and reception at the banquet center. Guests loved the fire pit & waterfall features on the patio

    An Ideal Venue Experience

    At first, we had some anxiety about choosing a venue in Connecticut's remote quiet corner. But the level of service and professionalism at The Mansion during planning and on our wedding day reminded us why that didn't matter. Janet, the venue coordinator, was always available to answer my random questions and kept us on track when making decisions.

    On the day of, we were blown away by how calm, collected and on top of it she was and the thoughtfulness of her staff. They brought drinks and appetizers to the family during photos, they kept the buffet line full and happy and they were on hand to clean any drinks spilled and glasses dropped (only two, not bad). They all seemed happy to be there. Coming from someone with a background in catering, I was impressed.

    The food was delicious. We also had concerns about going in-house for food (we've heard some venues have a bad rep). Not with The Mansion. All guests, ourselves included, loved the food. And we went with the most basic package.

    The venue itself is the right mix of charming and sophisticated. All night people asked, "How did you find this?!" in disbelief at what a beautiful place exists in the middle of no where.

    Now that its over and all sunk in, many guests have told us this was "the perfect day." I would highly, highly recommend this venue to anyone in the area.

    We are so happy we chose to celebrate the most important day of our lives at the mansion at bald hill. The staff was super kind and the food was phenomenal. The ballroom just speaks for itself, it is absolutely stunning. Janet was also great to work with and is very responsive and knowledgeable.

    The Mansion at Bald Hill exceeded our expectations. I have always loved eating brunch there, so when my husband and I decided to take a look at the Mansion as a possible venue, we absolutely loved it. I already knew the food is delicious. The Mansion and garden are absolutely beautiful, the banquet hall I had not seen until our tour, and it was stunning. The patio was perfect for cocktails with the fire pit and water fall feature. I was able to use a room at the mansion, Mrs. Bowen’s suit, for all of my girls and Myself to get ready for the wedding. I was also given the room for the night of the wedding for my husband and I. The room was furnished beautifully and I enjoyed the historical aspect of the mansion. Janet was amazing, she helped us every step of the way. Any worries or concerns she took care of. The staff is friendly and made the entire experience wonderful and unforgettable. After the wedding our guests kept saying it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to. Everything was perfect and I highly recommend The Mansion at Bald Hill for anyone looking for a venue for their special day.
