Janet, their coordinator, was helpful, responsive, and very organized. She let us go in to decorate early on our wedding day. We had a very hot day so she allowed our guests to stay inside for the cocktail hour. The staff were attentive and extremely friendly. I heard from many guests how the drinks were great and the food was delicious. The grounds are absolutely beautiful – especially at night. There is a waterfall, fire pit, a fountain, garden, etc. Lots of variety for pictures and room to run around in for young guests. Thank you and highly recommend!
My wedding was at this venue on July 17th. I had very high hopes for The Mansion at Bald Hill since the first time I saw how beautiful it was in person! Not only did our wedding go so smoothly, it absolutely exceeded my expectations. Janet was there helping and facilitating every second of the way – with the littlest of jobs to ones more involved! I could not thank her and her staff enough for the hard work they put in for our rehearsal dinner and wedding the next day. The food The Mansion cooked and provided was delicious both nights. Everything went seamlessly from our point of view, even with the crazy rain shower and changing our ceremony spot last minute. Our wedding guests had nothing but amazing things to say about the entire night. The Mansion has a list of preferred vendors who were also super easy to work with and I would highly recommend as well. My husband and I would recommend The Mansion for any event!
If you are an anxious bride who wants their day to be perfect, I highly suggest going with The Mansion at Bald Hill – their Event Manager, Janet was an absolute dream to work with! Her punctuality in email and phone responses, attention to detail throughout the planning experience, and passion for the wedding space was incredible. Having her manage the wedding on the day of let me sit back and enjoy the day with my loved ones. We loved that the venue provides so much flexibility for a ceremony either indoor or out, beautiful grounds to take photos, and a patio space for guests to enjoy the fresh air. We could not have had a better experience and would recommend this venue to anyone!
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!
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.
We can’t praise the Mansion and the wedding coordinator, Janet, enough. She was always quick to reply, even during the holiday season. She made sure everything was smooth sailing, and I never felt rushed or out of control. She was exactly what every bride needs to keep the wedding on track and to keep calm if anything goes awry. I have nothing but praise for her.
