The best venue around. From the appearance, food, drinks and staff everythinf was perfection. Brian and Patty were on top of everything making sure we had everything we needed. They made wedding planning fun and easy. Any changes we had they werw accommodating of even up until the day of our wedding. The night of they made sure everything was running smooth. With 180 guests, no one left cocktail hour hungry and everyone was served in a timely manner. We have received so many compliments about the venue overall. The food is beyond delicious and abundant. We could have not dreamed of a more perfect night.
Absolute dream wedding! Patty, Brian, Barbara, Leslie and the staff were nothing but helpful from the first tour to our wedding day. Brian was a dream to work with and so much fun. The fun we had that the rehearsal was a just a taste of what was to come on the wedding day. The staff is above professional, attentive and a delight to work with. We couldn't fault anything. The food was out of this world. From cocktail hour to cake our guests could not stop raving about the food. I don't think I have seen plates cleared off so fast ever. I felt like an absolute princess that day and the staff played a huge part in that. We had a sitter with our infant daughter in the bridal suite during the reception nd Leslie made sure the sitter was taken care of. This venue is a well oiled machine that leaves you free to enjoy the wedding. I truly was able to relax, dance, enjoy the food and have a great time. Thanks again to Fox Hill Inn for making us feel like we were royalty. The venue played a huge part in the success of our wedding the amount of our guests who are raving about your venue is testament to that. Thank you for being part of such an important day and helping make my dream wedding come true.
I don’t even know where to start, from start to finish, my experience with the Fox Hill Inn was truly AMAZING. Patty, Linda, Sean and the rest of the Fox Hill Inn staff are truly the most helpful, kind group of people that really care about your event, I knew I was in good hands the very first moment I toured the facility. Working with the Fox Hill Inn for my wedding felt like working with family, never once did I doubt the success of my wedding, and just like I thought, my day was absolutely perfect and unforgettable. I cannot say thank you enough to the staff of the Fox Hill Inn. Family and friends are still raving about how good the food was, from the cocktail hour to the main meal and cake– everything was absolutely delicious. Nothing felt rushed and everyone received a hot meal. I 100% recommend the Fox Hill Inn for any couple looking to have amazing wedding.
Fox Hill Inn made my wedding everything I ever wanted. All of the prep work was smooth and when we arrived after our ceremony everything was exactly how I requested. I didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was incredible and the staff was very friendly. All of our guests had an amazing time and said how beautiful it was and how delicious the the food was. We’ll be returning in April for my brother’s wedding!
We had our wedding at the Fox Hill Inn in November. It was an amazing day- the staff was very helpful! Brian was such a great help with the wedding rehearsal- made myself and our wedding party feel comfortable and confident for the ceremony. The staff displayed our decorations beautifully. We had lanterns as center pieces and they used them as a walk way during the ceremony and then moved them to the tables for dinner. A guest made us a sign for our wedding and it was displayed on the fireplace for pictures. These are small details that made such a beautiful difference in our wedding photos. The food was delicious and the staff was extremely professional. So many of my friends and family were so impressed with the venue. I highly recommend the Fox Hill Inn to anyone looking for a romantic venue.
10 days ago was the happiest day of our lives. The staff at the Fox Hill Inn played a huge roll in making it unforgettable. Planners, admin staff, bridal attendants, bartenders and wait staff gave exceptional service. Everyone is so professional, well trained and attentive. The whole process was very easy and fool proof. Our guests loved the food and the venue was gorgeous. Thank you Fix Hill Inn. We love you!
My husband and I had the best wedding experience ever! The foxhill inn was very accomadating of the older guests and made sure they felt comfortable and welcome! They made sure everything ran smoothly and the food was delicious ❤️
From the very beginning to the end of our wedding night, everybody involved was so easy to work with. They were so accommodating in every request and always available if we had any questions. Our wedding was perfect! It was everything we dreamed of and more! The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was one that nobody will ever forget. Thank you so much for everything. We definitely recommend the Fox Hill Inn to any bride and groom looking for an amazing wedding!
Wow! I have no words to describe how amazing this venue and staff is. From the minute we met Patty we knew this venue would be perfect and they would go above and beyond to make this the most special day for us. Brian has been so easy to work with and helped us make the right decisions. Our guests could not rave enough about how great the staff is, how beautiful the venue was and how AMAZING the food is (this is coming from a group who is used to NYC weddings). I would choose Fox Hill again and again and again if I could! Thank you for making our dreams come true!
We couldn't be happier with our experience with the Fox Hill Inn. Brian and his Staff are true Wedding Professionals, they have each detail worked out flawlessly and exceed all expectations. From planning, to rehearsal, to the day-of the staff is there to help make things as easy as possible. The food was absolutely delectable and the cake was both beautiful and delicious. When looking for a venue that will truly provide you with an unforgettable elegant event, look no further than the Fox Hill Inn.
From the moment we got there we loved The Fox Hill Inn. The staff and service was above our expectations. The tour we had with Brian was the best we have ever had. He was nice and attentive. Answered all questions and let us leave with some samples. The menu, the price, the place, the view everything was great. I love that you have a special room for the grooms men! Only place we looked at that does. Plus the dry ice in the fountain, beautiful! Patty was very helpful and accommodating as well. My fiancé's mother is in a wheelchair and he was concerned about her going in through the back. I emailed Patty and within the hour she had a solution for us! Thank you so much for everything.
We could not have picked a more perfect place to have our wedding than the Fox Hill Inn. From the moment we walked in to view the venue, the staff was warm, accommodating our every need and couldn't be more lovely. We left there and about an hour later drove back to make our deposit. We were one hundred percent sure it was the right place for us and now having experienced our wedding there, I would say it is one of the best venues to get married in CT, if not THE best venue. I have very severe dietary restrictions due to medical issues and Brian Potter at the Fox Hill Inn did everything in his power to make sure that there was enough food I could eat and even arranged for me to have a special meal. The bridal attendants were nothing short of spectacular, taking care of me and my bridal party every step of the way. I had really wanted to have pickle back shots for the wedding party and Brian made sure we had a special place to celebrate in this way. The food was out of this world, the setting is a perfect vintage/rustic feel, with elegance and charm and the staff phenomenal. Patty and Brian answered every single email I sent (and there were many), always putting me at ease. And the best thing was, I am a professional producer, and I was able to step out of that role and just be present and enjoy every moment the day of because everything was so organized and run seamlessly with Brian at the helm. The Fox Hill Inn provided everything I could have ever asked for, even setting up and breaking down our abundant signs and decorations prior to the ceremony and afterwards. I cannot recommend the Fox Hill Inn enough. They made our dream wedding a reality!
Where do I start?! The entire staff at The Fox Hill Inn is so amazing at what they do! From Brian and Patty making the planning process stress free and easy, to all of the bridal attendants and staff the day of being so attentive and kind! I never once had any worries or doubts about our reception because I knew from the moment we booked our wedding date that they wouldn’t let anything go wrong and I was right! From the moment we arrived at the reception everything went flawlessly and my new husband and I were able to enjoy our day without worry. We cannot thank you enough for giving us the wedding we dreamed of and making it a day we will never forget!
Our wedding at the Fox Hill Inn was literally a dream come true! Brian, Patty and the whole Fox Hill Staff were incredible and went above and beyond in making sure our wedding was just as we imagined it! From the moment we arrived at Fox Hill the day of the wedding, everyone was so attentive, helpful and prepared in making sure every task was completed and everything we needed was taken care of. Not only was the service impeccable, but the food was extraordinary too! Brian seamlessly worked with all of vendors to ensure that everything ran smoothly and made sure that my husband and I were having the night of our lives. I could not have imagined a more beautiful or better venue to have my wedding at!!!
We would check more stars if we could! Our day was an amazing day. It was fairy-tale perfect from the minute we walked in and until we left. The staff was awesome and the food great. Beyond what we expected. A class act all the way.
this is this the most amazing place to have a wedding. my daughter was married here august 13, 2017. the food is fabulous and the setting is gorgeous. However what the best part is how lovely and accommodating the entire staff is to work with in planning your event. Patti Finnegan is warm, helpful and just an absolute delight. Brian Potter who is the event planner and there to orchestrate the entire event is terrific. i cannot even begin to put into words how fantastic he was to work with and made the day just a dream come true. you could not find a better venue in all of CT to have your wedding and I would urge every couple to come and see the Fox Hill Inn when they are exploring venues.
Our wedding at the Fox Hill Inn was unfortunately a negative experience. We regret having chosen them for a wedding venue. The good: -Brian, the day-of coordinator, has a great attention to detail and will make you feel at ease knowing he has these events down to a science. He was a pleasure to plan with. -the filet mignon was the absolute best filet I have ever had. SO GOOD. The not so good: -day of the wedding, I had to walk by another bride due to her not leaving her event on time when she was supposed to (we had 1 hour between that wedding and our wedding start--which the fox hill then diminished to 45 minutes after we booked them.) -our day of coordinator was unfortunately unable to make it to our wedding due to a family emergency. The issue was that we had no idea until my husband and I noticed no one was tending to us and everything started falling apart. We were running around everywhere doing the matre-d's job, and we kept asking where Brian was. The staff seemed unaware, as 3 different members told us 3 different things (he was working another affair that weekend, he was off that weekend, he was sick.... finally were told of a fill in coordinator, who did not tend to us well. a lot of our stress we could not come back from. turns out they knew all day Brian would not attend -our open bar was closed for an hour during speeches, which we paid for (father of groom rudely denied a drink) -my cake for the cake cutting was agreed to be gluten free, but right before we cut it, they werent sure. Couldnt eat my cake in the end, they apologized when we addressed this, and issued a non- negotiable refund that we felt was low. The owner stopped short of threatening me after stalking me on the internet and seeing an anonymous post where I was asking about my legal options for my matre d not being there. It is unfortunate he didn't fully own the mistakes the way his staff graciously did.
I still can't find the words to explain how absolutely incredible Patty, Brian, and their staff made our special day. The Fox Hill Inn was the last venue I looked at when we started planning, and as soon as we turned down the tree-lined driveway and saw the classic, charming building I fell in love with it. Over the last 11 months that love grew with each visit and milestone. Our July 7 wedding was truly spectacular thanks to this venue! To be honest, I don't know where to start. The facility itself is beautiful. The grounds are meticulous, green, and well-maintained. The building is clean, spacious, and allowed our guests to have plenty of room to mingle, eat, and dance. The upstairs room and patio for cocktail hour were perfect for our sunny evening, and the bar with fireplace became a favorite place to mingle after dinner for those not dancing. Personally, I loved the photos we took outside by the fountain! The food was equally delicious. After tasting so many delicious options, it was hard to choose our passed hot hors d'oeuvres. We eventually chose some delicious options (the crab cakes were my favorite...my husband loved the pigs in a blanket...which were served creatively), which were complimented by other items. Salad, pasta, and dinner were all delicious as well. We took the time to sit and eat our filet and swordfish...yum! The food came out hot, the portions were generous, and guests were so impressed with how the whole table was served at the same time. My husband and I also loved our cake and can't wait to share the top layer on our anniversary. But what really makes this place so special is the staff. They were accommodating, professional, kind, and calm. From beginning to end, they answered every question, met every need, and always did so with a smile. My husband and I are both big baseball fans, and from the very first time we met with Patty she helped us choose some little touches to acknowledge this. Our meetings with Brian were always organized, and when I came into them with my list of questions, I left not only with answers to those, but many more. He was also able to help us plan details around shuttle timing, toasts, first dance, etc. My phone calls and emails were always answered promptly, and when various family members wanted a tour to see our special place, Patty was always willing to accommodate them. The day of our wedding we were greeted with smiles, and waited on hand and foot. It was rainy when we arrived for pictures, but Patty assured me it was going to clear up, and within an hour the sun was shining! I was never without a drink, knew exactly when my food was at my seat, and was able to dance the night away and spend time with all of my guests. Our bridal attendants even helped execute a prank from my parents to my husband by serving him a plastic salad! When it was time to leave, all of our things were packaged up and ready to be loaded into the shuttle to take home. I was sad the night was over, and to say goodbye! Our experience at The Fox Hill Inn was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. Guests told us that night and the next morning how perfect our venue was, and we couldn't agree more. Thank you to Patty, Brian and everyone else who made our night so special! Best wishes from The Taylors
My daughter and her new husband chose the Fox Hill Inn after she visited a few different venues. She knew immediately that this was the venue for them. Her initial visit was with Patty and that meeting made us feel like we were the most important client Patty had. I never heard of The Fox Hill Inn before our visit. We went to two other venues and although they were beautiful, they didn't have Patty there to help plan the most important day in her life. As it got closer to her wedding day, she met with Brian who would be her planner. He always had a smile on his face and made each encounter fun. Again, like their wedding was the only one they had to worry about. Barbara was always readily available to answer any questions whether by phone or email. The day we delivered all of our items for their wedding day, Brian was tied up with another bride so Barbara immediately stepped in. She went through everything with us and where we wanted each item placed. Everything was set up exactly as we imagined on their wedding day. I made all of the desserts and delivered them the day before their wedding. Being mother of the bride, setting up the desserts the day of their wedding was going to be a challenge. Brian and all of the staff knew that. To my pleasant surprise, all of the dessert was trayed and ready to set up upon our arrival. It was absolutely perfect. Everything that I dropped off was set out. This was a lot of work that I never expected them to do but they wanted this day to be perfect for our family. Both the Bride and Groom were treated like royalty and the staff made sure they had enough food to eat. The food was delicious. Everyone was raving about their meals. I have no regrets that the Bride and Groom chose The Fox Hill Inn. It was the best wedding venue we worked with. It became quite clear from the first meeting with Patty that we would be well taken care of. There were no egos, everyone pitched in. My advice to couples looking for a venue is to value your first impression of any venue. We visited one venue on a lake and although the view was amazing, the wedding planner was rude and unwelcoming. I couldn't imagine working with that venue. The Fox Hill Inn may not be on a lake but their garden allows beautiful photos. The upstairs cocktail area has a wrap around porch with a wonderful view of the garden. It's a classic venue, has amazing food, attentive staff and your day will be a memorable experience. Thank you Patty, Brian, Barbara, Leslie and everyone else who made this family appreciative for each and every detail for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding.
Patty, Brian, Barbara and the entire Fox Hill Inn Staff are the best in the business! They went above and beyond to make my wedding amazing. The day was absolutely perfect in every way. I can't express enough how happy Matt and I are about how the day went. Our guests will not stop telling us how incredible everything was - especially how delicious the food was and how exceptional the service was. Both our parents can't stop talking about all the compliments they've been receiving. From helping us with the touring of the venue, planning of the wedding with our in-person meetings, to the big day, Fox Hill did everything to make Matt and I feel special. We appreciate their attention to detail and how they made everything so easy throughout the day. On a personal note, I was so nervous when I arrived and everyone at Fox Hill helped make me feel comfortable and welcome. I will be forever grateful for their kindness on my wedding day. I will never forget how perfect my wedding day was, and that is completely because of all of the Fox Hill Inn Staff. Any bride would be lucky to have her wedding here!
The wedding of our dreams was made possible thanks to everyone at Fox Hill Inn. From our initial discussions with Patty, we knew we were making the right choice. She was so great at listening to what our interests were, and helping us to see that Fox Hill Inn could make our dreams come true. Working with Brian was an absolute pleasure. He was so responsive and patient with our constant questions and inquiries. Our rehearsal was quick and easy - Brian was prepared with everything we wanted, and open to suggestions and any changes we wanted. The wedding day was no different. Leslie and Dale took excellent care of us - tending to our every need and keeping us calm and prepared for every big moment. The staff set up the garden beautifully, and it shows in all of the pictures. The food was outstanding, from the cocktail hour to the dinner and stations to our delicious, beautiful cake. We are still getting compliments about the service and the food, as well as how beautiful the Fox Hill Inn is. Brian, Patty, Leslie, Dale and the rest of the FHI staff - thank you so much for making our wedding day the greatest day of our lives. Our dream wedding could not have happened without each and every one of you.
Wedding date May 20, 2017 The Fox Hill Inn was the perfect setting for our wedding. It offered exactly what we were looking for in a venue: seclusion surrounded by a beautiful setting without being far away from everything we would need. When you drive up to The Fox Hill Inn you immediately feel as if you are pulling up to a scene out of a movie. The grounds feel southern and regal without being overwhelming. All of our guests were impressed by the entire atmosphere and how perfectly everything came together on our wedding day. Leading up to the wedding day The Fox Hill Inn staff is helpful in guiding you every step of the way. They made the planning feel effortless. My wife and I came with many of our own items to be set up on the grounds for our wedding day. With little instruction on where we envisioned everything be placed the staff put it all together for us in a way we never imagined it could look. It came out exactly how we imagined it would. The day of the wedding the only thing I had to worry about was relaxing on my wedding day. The staff greeted us with treats and champagne when we first arrived on the grounds. I did not have to worry about anything at all everything was completely under control. The ceremony started exactly on time and it was beautifully done how they set everything up. Many times prior to our wedding our friends kept saying you never get to eat on your wedding day. Well that is not true at The Fox Hill Inn. The staff made sure that my wife and I enjoyed every item of food that we had planned for. They even sat us early for our entree to make sure that we had a moment to ourselves to enjoy the meals without any worry. From one moment to the next moment we were guided every step of the way throughout the day it was effortless. We actually had a great time at our own wedding and we were able to enjoy every second of it. Along with how everything was run during the day the food was absolutely amazing. There was not one thing that was not prepared to perfection. From the delicious hors d'oeuvres, to the delicious entrees, and to the cake/gelato station. All of our guests raved about the food to this day we continue to get compliments on our choice of venue. Being at The Fox Hill Inn for our wedding day made all of us feel as if we were home. It gave an intimate setting for everyone to enjoy. My wife and I will be forever thankful for all that was done for us prior to our wedding day and the wedding day itself. Our only regret is that we do not get an opportunity to replay the day from start to finish again. So many fantastic memories were captured that day and we know it was all thanks to our venue for all of their efforts to make it such a memorable occasion.
The experience with Fox Hill Inn was excellent! From the initial meetings, booking of the hall, creating the menus, updates as the months went by, rehearsal, and then finally, the big day; ALL of it was handled professionally, timely, and with the utmost care. Brian & Patty were beyond wonderful to work with. It was as if my fiancée and I were the only ones they had to tend to. On our wedding day, the thoughtfulness of the entire staff was impeccable. When it came to the food, the presentation and taste of all of it (this comes from our guests, as well as from us), was an A+!!! The head chef and culinary staff are the best of ALL the banquet halls in the area! This is not hyperbole, this is fact. :-) For recently engaged couples, I would STRONGLY encourage making Fox Hill Inn, among any other option available, the venue of choice to celebrate their wedding day. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone at Fox Hall, and for making our wedding day unforgettable! Love and regards, Lisa and Danny
We cannot say enough great things about the venue! The staff was beyond amazing and so incredibly helpful with every little detail.The location is perfect, close to everything and you have a selection of hotels nearby for any of your guest. All my guest keep telling me how amazing the food was and they have never been to such a wonderful wedding before. We had our ceremony on location and the fountain outside was so beautiful to get married at. Thank you to all the staff at The Fox Hill Inn, you all did the most amazing job and allowed my husband and I to have the wedding of our dreams!
The fox hill inn and staff made our dreams come true! Patty, Brian, Barbara and the entire team answered all my questions and literally made our dreams a reality! We had 150 guests and everyone has mentioned the food! It was delicious! I was so excited I hardly ate but no worries, the team had my meal packed and ready to go so I could enjoy later! The price is VERY reasonable for all the things you get! We are still waiting for our final pictures and will be sure to share some so you can see how magical Our day truley was! Thank you to all!
