I absolutely loved everything about the Kelton House. Everyone was friendly and they always responded to my questions and e-mails ASAP. The garden was beautiful and they guests really enjoyed the venue. It is on the smaller side so you have to limit your guest list, but they...

My September 2011 wedding inside the Kelton House Garden was pure magic! The garden created the perfect setting for our elegant, initimate wedding. The grounds are well-kept and the staff is very accomodating considering all the guidelines that have to be followed because of the...

We hosted our wedding ceremony there and our reception elsewhere, because it was too costly for us to host both events there, which is the only drawback.

Lovely Venue! Our daughter and her now-husband chose to host their wedding at Kelton House, and it was a great choice for our 70 guests. The garden with pergola was gorgeous and lush, and made for beautiful photos. Tables for a sit-down dinner were set up on the brick patio... Read More under large rented tents, and we decorated the trees and shrubs with fairy lights. There was plenty of room for the string quartet that played during the ceremony and cocktail hour. The DJ set up in the carriage house off of the patio, which was perfect for dancing. Chuck, the events coordinator for Kelton House, was very helpful, as were the staff the night of the event. During the cocktail hour, a docent gave tours of the beautiful and fascinating home. Many local vendors, such as Weiland's Catering (also terrific) work with Kelton House regularly, so coordination and planning were pretty easy. If you are planning a small to medium-sized (25-75 guests) wedding, Kelton House is a charming, wonderful choice, and it's quite affordable as well.

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Kelton House and everything was perfect! We had a small wedding (35 guests) and loved the vintage feel the Kelton House offers.

This venue is absolutely beautiful! The carriage house is amazing, and the history of the building is amazing. Just awesome. With the underground railroad room downstairs... so cool.

Outdoor Wedding

I had my wedding at the Kelton House in October. It turned out truly lovely. I was disappointed with the fact that only about 40 guests could be seated comfortably in the carriage house and I did not realize that until it was too late. Thus, I had to rent a tent and seat some... Read More guests outside. I would recommend it for an event with fewer than 40 guests for a sit down dinner, or maybe for a cocktail party with more guests.

we had our rehersal dinner at the Kelton House and cannot say enough good things.

Review for Kelton House

Reviewed on 5/10/2010 Kate B

I loved that it had indoor and outdoor space. I loved the garden and that it was unique to the typical hotel ballroom. It was intimate and romantic and the staff were very helpful. I also loved that the Kelton House was part of the Underground Railroad and they do school program... Read More for kids - so the money for the reception went to a good cause.;There were some mozquitos in the yard so hindsight I would have had a few bottles of non-smelly bug spray on the outdoor tables. The inside room is a little tired, but I think the garden outweighs that. I would not choose this site for a winter wedding, but it was beautiful in the summer.
