We had our wedding reception here this past weekend. I can not praise everyone at the county house enough. Olivia was great planning, organizing and keeping me up to date throughout the process. When we arrived that day us and our family were treated better than words can describe. I highly recommend the country house! I did not hear anything but positive words from family and friends as well. From the atmosphere to the food everything was more than perfect. Thank you for making our wedding so wonderful!
Fantastic Service, Value, & Food!Reviewed on 11/16/2014 Alicia G
The Country House is wonderful! The food is so delicious (and plentiful!), wait staff is very attentive, and the value is like no other venue we viewed. We had almost 200 people at our wedding with a photobooth, candy station, favors, and additional items decorations (even though they decorate beautifully for the season). The set up was perfect! Guests had plenty of room for seating, dancing, and enjoying all of the entertainment and food throughout the Country House. Also, the entire staff was so helpful; our entire experience fun and easy from our first viewing to after the reception concluded. I would definitely recommend the Country House!!
Absolutely Incredible!Reviewed on 11/01/2014 Alicia T
I would not have wanted to have my wedding anywhere else. The Country House was absolutely incredible! Olivia and Jim were perfect to work with. Right from the first meeting, we knew this is where our wedding would be. Jim really worked with us on the price and we had so much included, we couldn't go wrong. He even sent food home with us after the first visit without even knowing if we were booking with him or not. Our guests are still talking about how great the food was (and coming from a big Italian family, food is a very important thing). There was no pressure to book, the value was great, and the food was even better! The day of the wedding, my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The staff was amazing! From the bartenders, to the waiters and waitresses and the Maitre D' was perfection! We had 200 guests at our wedding and they handled it without a problem, it was also nice to know that we were the only wedding on the property. I do not like some other venues that have multiple weddings occurring at the same time. They set up the tables exactly how we wanted and the centerpieces were INCLUDED with the price. It came out absolutely beautiful! Unfortunately, some unwanted guests arrived at the reception and they had no problem telling them they were not on the list, after they discussed it with us. We also had some guests not able to come the day of the wedding, and they packed up all of the extra food and favors and sent it home with us no problem. We did not have to worry about a thing. They truly did everything to make our day perfect and we could not have asks for a better venue!
The Perfect NightReviewed on 10/24/2014
Jim and his staff at the Country House did an absolutely amazing job! The Country House puts out so many appetizers that some of my guests though the appetizers were dinner; were they ever surprised with the four courses that were served after the appetizers. The prime rib is the biggest piece of prime rib you will get anywhere. The Country House was renovated just before my wedding and the results are terrific. In my search, the Country House provided the greatest value and my wedding was just perfect!
AMAZINGReviewed on 4/11/2014 Rebecca B

Amazing!!!!Reviewed on 8/14/2012 Laureen M
Everything about the evening was perfect. Including the last minute change in the ceremony. It rained so we needed to change our location from outside to inside the Country House and they handled it with perfection. The food was excellent as always. Everyone loved it. We had people from out of town that had never been there before and said it was a beautiful venue as well as amazing food. Olivia was the best to work with. A BIG thank you to all their staff for all their fine work.

The food was fantastic. They left the chair covers on from the shower immediately before us, so we got them for free! The staff was very accommodating, and the day was a wonderful success!
