Janet, I had to formally write to you about how please we were with the wedding shower we had for our daughter, Nicole, on May 23rd. During the pandemic, you were always reachable and worked me to reschedule our event several times.
The room set up, the service and the food was perfect! I saw some of our friends get up several times for additional helpings. You made our long-awaited day extra special. I also want to mention Erin’s cake was to die for. I did reach out to her as well.
Again, Thank you for everything. Our wedding shower was truly a perfect event. May next…baby shower!!
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.
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.
Words cannot be enough for all the ways we would like to thank you for all your efforts that went into making our wedding day a dream come true. The next day, I kept saying “that was the best wedding I have ever been to!” And it was ours – everything was perfect- our guests truly enjoyed the stunning grounds, the great food and pleasant service. It was the first wedding for both of our families. We know it was stressful at times but we can’t thank you enough for your honesty, patience, support and kind words. We will be back for dinner in the near future. Best of luck to you all and thank you again.
Thank you so incredibly much for making the most important day of our lives so incredibly perfect! Everything was so seamless and we are so grateful for the smoothness that day. Every single one of our guests had a blast and commented on how great the food was, the atmosphere and all the details. CS and I look forward to returning for dinner in the future! Good luck with the rest of the wedding year!
Thank you so much for helping us with our wedding! The service was awesome, especially since we were planning on sending someone inside to grab drinks while we were doing pictures. And then we didn’t have to because drinks and appetizers came outside to us! We also want to thank the staff for helping my mom collect the pinecones and other decorations from the tables when the night was winding down!
Everyone raved about the grounds and how lovely the venue was! We (obviously) have never been married before and we benefitted from having you around and guiding us through the process and working with our vendors during the service. I hope your venue has continued success in the future and hopefully we’ll stop by in the future for a dinner or special event! We are very thankful and happy on how our wedding day turned out because of you and your staff. Again, thank you so much!
Love Tom Pomeroy and Cat Hammel
Good morning Janet,
I had to reach out and let you know again what a fantastic experience Andrew and Vanessa’s wedding was this past weekend Your attention to every detail really made it a seamless event. Living in the business, I can say that I never really stop working – but after a few brief moments when I realized that we were in very capable hands – I had an amazing time.
The staff and willingness to help with everything, level of service, food – the food, omg plate presentation was beautiful and delicious. I was able to speak with Joel as well. Kudos to all the members of your team – we had an amazing weekend starting with the rehearsal. That was amazing too!!
We are still getting messages from friends and family telling us what a beautiful venue and raving about the service.
I know you are a one woman team running the property – you are totally awesome at your job.

Dear Janet & Staff,
Thank you so much for your contributions in making our wedding day as perfect and stress free as it was. There were a few things we didn’t plan for and your staff and yourself were very accommodating, which we are truly grateful for. With your picture-esque property and brand new facility, we couldn’t have played a better picked a better place to have our reception. Thank you for everything that you have done!

We simply cannot say enough about our amazing and simply perfect wedding day and reception. Your venue was an absolute dream come true and was everything and more that we ever could have wished for! Janet, you are a true professional and wedding planning goddess. You catered to every crazy and over the top request and we are forever grateful! The venue felt so personalized and custom and we thank you for that! you made us feel so comfortable and at home. Our guests (and ourselves) are still raving about the mansion grounds, exceptional food, catering service, etc. Everything was stunning. Thank you for recommending Dels and the outside grab & go bar cooler – that was a huge hit! You managed our events, our day, our guests and were so personal to help me throughout that – thank you simply isn’t enough! you are a true rock-star and we will remember this day forever. Thank you!
We had our wedding at the mansion on July 22nd and people are still raving about it. It is a beautiful venue in a quintessential New England town, the gardens were a perfect backdrop for our ceremony while the patio and banquet hall was a great setting for the party to follow! Guests are in awe that we found such a gorgeous hidden gem. The staff was all super sweet and really helped to cater to our every need, the food was delicious and the atmosphere helped make a great evening. Janet worked hard all along to answer questions and keep things on the right track, making the wedding go perfectly. Honestly, with all the different moving parts of a wedding, we did not have one hiccup once the ceremony started throughout the entire night. Thank you Mansion at Bald Hill, we will be coming back as often as we can for Sunday brunch and to reminisce about our wedding day!
I can not say enough about how much we enjoyed having our reception at the Mansion at Bald Hill. Janet was great to work with, she was very organized and helped us plan out every aspect of the reception from the napkin colors to the play-by-play timeline. She was very flexible during the planning process- meeting in person multiple times and answering questions via email. The quality of the food at the reception was as good as the plates in their restaurant. We got many compliments on the dinner, especially the prime rib. We also had a rehearsal dinner here the night before and our bridal party stayed at the mansion. Mrs Bowen’s Room was a great location for getting ready photos.
I want to thank you again so much for everything. I’ve been hearing so many compliments at how perfect our wedding was and how amazing the staff was.
I’ve also heard that the food was the best anyone has ever had at a wedding and that the food was actually hot! Whereas some places people have said their meal isn’t hot at weddings. Every single person LOVED the meal and the venue.
Janet, You are such a hard worker and it doesn’t go unnoticed. I hope you take sometime for yourself this year and go vacation. You deserve it.
It was a real pleasure to work with you. I’ll keep the Mansion in mind for any other functions. I am forever grateful.
Thank you again,
Hillary & Eric
I had my wedding at the Mansion at Bald Hill on 6/24/17. Janet and the rest of the staff out did themselves!! Every staff member was polite, gracious and attentative.

Jeff and I wanted to thank you for the exceptional job you and the staff at the mansion did to create a wonderful experience that we will cherish for a lifetime. We were very fortunate with the weather, although everything went smoothly and all of our guests felt comfortable throughout because of the efforts of you and your staff! We look forward to visiting the Mansion in the future!
Our sincerest thanks Janet for your amazing support helping us pull off the best starlight gala ever! Yes, the venue was awesome but I know that hard work came from the “back office” attentiveness to all the small details and large ones that are truly seen if something goes wrong. Well nothing could have made the evening better! It was perfect and your planning, guidance, experience and kindness to the WEI made it so. Thank you Janet. We look forward to next year!
Sincerely, Woodstock Education Institution
I would like to thank you and the people involved in making y daughter-in-law Meghan’s baby shower so special. The venue, food, and atmosphere were beyond my expectations. Many of the guests thought it was the nicest shower they had ever attended. You were just great to work with, and I felt at ease throughout all of the planning.
Dear Janet, Joel and Scott,
Thank you again so much for making our wedding so incredibly special. Our guests were all blown away by the beauty of the mansion and grounds, as well as all of the spectacular food!

Dar Scott, Janet & Staff,
I want to thank you so very much for making son Noah’s rehearsal dinner so memorable. I knew when I selected the Mansion that the event would be a joyous one! Scott, I know my mother would be so proud/pleased with you preparing this meal in such “high-fashion”. It was an absolute joyous event, which will be remembered by many friends & family. From the preparation of the menu selection, to the night itself, everything went smoothly and could not have been more perfect. Janet’s professional, easy going nature made the planning a pleasure. the true testament to the success that night was when each guest expressed to me how delightful their meal was. Everything was truly perfect! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Thank you so much for all your hard work and patience. You really helped to make AJ’s Bar Mitzvah awesome!
Love AJ, Naomi & Ted!
Thanks so much for all your help and wedding day coordination!

When planning a corporate meeting it is important to have high expectations of the hosting venue. The Mansion at Bald Hill exceeded all expectations I had for being a partner in planning our corporate function. The response time was exceptional to obtain information on the venue, the support in finding an answer to any question was great, and planning the evening was stress free.
Even outside of a corporate function, I highly suggest this venue for a first class dining experience. We had 21 people in our party, the menu choices were extensive, and every meal arrived at the same time, the appropriate temperature, and cooked perfectly.
Every member of the team at the Mansion at Bald Hill was friendly and service oriented. They were attentive and made us all feel extremely welcomed in what felt like their “home”.
I look forward to partnering with the team at the Mansion at Bald Hill more often in the future.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Mansions at Bald Hill on 9/24/16. It was everything we would have dreamed it would be. Janet at the Mansions was so flexible and made sure that every little detail was exactly how we wanted it to be. The venue was absolutely gorgeous, the staff was fantastic and the food was phenomenal. We truly recommend the Mansions at Bald Hill – it was the best decision we could have made for our wedding reception!
Everything about our day was absolutely perfect. We received so many compliments about the beautiful grounds and the banquet room. And everyone said the food was amazing! I couldn’t have asked for anything more!
We first went to visit the Mansion based on a recommendation from a friend. Janet was quick to respond, and she setup a tour for us the next day. Janet was great to work with. She was always available by email and that kept keeping in touch so easy. She answered all my questions and was so helpful throughout the planning process.
I absolutely loved everything about our wedding day! I will definitely recommend The Mansion to my family and friends! I couldn’t be happier!
The Mansion at Bald Hill is the perfect venue if you want to enjoy yourself you want your guests to have A GREAT TIME. They have a gorgeous fire pit, beautiful grounds, awesome food, friendly staff and an awesome Victorian-styled bed and breakfast to relax in. My husband and I stayed in two different rooms the night before the wedding- him in Mr. Bowen and myself in the Mrs.Bowen room- and it was just an amazing experience. We, of course, stayed in the beautiful Mrs. Bowen the night of the wedding. So comfortable and elegant. The new ballroom is so really elegant inside and the outside grounds are so fun and relaxing. All of your guests just absolutely loved the venue. Janet, the events coordinator was amazingly on her game and was totally and completely helpful and creative. A million THANK YOU’s to the Mansion!!!!
We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding truly amazing! Everything was beautifully done and perfect!!! The staff is so wonderful. We had so much fun and we owe it all to you and your spectacular wedding planning skills
The Mansion at Bald Hill has always been a wonderful experience. The owners and staff consistently accommodate every detail to provide superior service at various functions that The Citizens National Bank has held at The Mansion. The food is represented in an exquisite manner and is absolutely delicious. The Mansion is the destination to relax and enjoy.
We can not express how thankful we are for all your help and support making our wedding experience so fabulous! You made the process as seamless as possible and for that we are truly grateful. The venue and all the arrangements were absolutely stunning.
