The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
Ballroom. The Banquet Center’s Ballroom at the Mansion at Ball Hill has 7,500 square feet for dining, dancing and entertaining your guests. This is an elegant room with exposed wood truss arches that are accentuated with candelabra chandeliers. Your party will have access to a 20-foot bar with exquisite Italian granite. Up to 275 guests can be entertained around a large dance floor. A beautiful location for a daytime wedding, its towering windows offer spectacular view of Bald Hill.
Gardens and patio. Stone walkways and landscaping, which includes a water fountain and a stone wall waterfall, provide a gentle and stately atmosphere for a spring or summertime wedding, reception or cocktail hour. The gardens and patio are not only appropriate for warmer weather—your wedding-goers can enjoy the outdoor space even in the cooler months with the porch’s fire pit and fireplace. Flowers and stone benches in the gardens lend to the tranquil atmosphere.
Pre-Function Room. Beautiful molding and wainscoting, carpeting and draperies with neutral colors provide fine touches for a sophisticated evening. This area includes a large stone fireplace, coffered ceilings and colonial-style furnishings.

The mansion was beautiful and set in an old world charm. The new reception hall is perfect for a modern wedding. The staff are wonderful and the food is the best! We plan to go back each anniversary.
If you are looking for a top notch quality staff, beautiful facilities and grounds, and mouthwatering, savory meals then the Mansion at Bald Hill in Woodstock, Connecticut is your place! My husband, Chris and I are truly impressed with the impeccable service we received during the planning process and throughout our Wedding Weekend! Janet Waterman is an excellent event planner, who graciously takes the time to meet with you and efficiently caters to every detail. Our special time was so carefree and relaxed, because we knew our Wedding was in great hands! We were even allowed to help with the arrangement of our Reception tables the night before the Wedding, which was a fun moment for us and allowed us to share some laughs with the Mansion Staff. The staff here truly cares about their customers and it is this genuine, heart-felt dedication , which makes the Mansion at Bald Hill rise above all of the rest! Jennie and Chris Errichetti
