  • My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams here on the last weekend of September. This is the true Vermont experience: beautiful, relaxed, welcoming and simple. No fuss no muss. The team goes out of their way to make sure all needs are met - from food restrictions to printing vows an hour before the ceremony! If you're looking for a place that will embrace your outdoor/barn wedding vision and help you make it happen, this is it!

  • Working with the 1824 House took away so much of the stress of planning a wedding. As it is a family business, it was so wonderful how experienced and coordinated they were! Connie, Hallie and Emily were so friendly and helpful! We cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you 1824 House for making our experience (and that of our guests) a night to be talked about for years to come!

    Thank You Lauren, Working with you and your family made the job easy! Everyone was so friendly to us which makes it seem less like work and more like everyone is there to have a good time, even the staff. Thanks so much, Connie, Hallie and Emily

  • If I could give more than 5 stars for the 1824 House, I absolutely would. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this wedding venue and all of the amazing people behind the scenes that make it happen. My husband and I came across the 1824 House while driving through Waitsfield, Vermont. It was a cold, rainy late November day and even then we completely fell in love with the beauty of the property. That being said, you can only imagine how beautiful it is the rest of the year! The property is immaculate and the inn itself is so charming and gorgeous. Also, how often do you find a wedding venue where you can knock off the ceremony site, reception site, caterer, accommodations, and linens all in one without compromising one bit on quality? The 1824 House honestly is the entire package. Hallie and the rest of the team (Occasions Catering, the Linen Shop, the innkeepers at the 1824 House) are a dream to work with! They are so responsive, friendly and welcoming. I must have sent Hall... Read more

  • 1824 House hosted and coordinated the wedding of our dreams. We knew from the beginning this venue had the look and feel we wanted for our wedding day. We were hooked once we saw the grounds and variety of settings for our wedding day. Our entire bridal party stayed at the Inn and staying on site allowed us to soak in the wonderful memories over the entire weekend. Hallie, Connie, and the team are very experienced, responded to our inquiries in a timely manner, and were just fabulous to work with. The day of our wedding went so smoothly from start to finish. Everything came together wonderfully and we, as bride and groom, had the time of our life.

  • My husband and I recently got married at the 1824 House and were beyond happy! When you book this property you are getting so much more than a wedding venue - you are getting a home in which to entertain friends and family for a weekend! As a wedding venue it was perfect. The barn was lovely and the tent out back really allowed us to have a separate space for dinner. We were able to set up lawn games in the front and there was plenty to keep everyone entertained! Unfortunately, our wedding had pretty bad weather (raining and 96% humidity) but there were plenty of spots for people to keep dry and have fun while doing it. It's such a beautiful property and the Vermont backdrop created our dream wedding. We also had such a lovely stay at the Inn - the breakfasts and snacks were delicious, we were made to feel very welcome, and our two dogs were completely doted upon. The staff was also really great. The Innkeeper Gwen served as a day-of wedding planner making sure that we stayed on... Read more

  • We got married at the 1824 House in October 2015 and had the most wonderful weekend possible. From the moment we arrived, we loved having the inn for our immediate friends and family. It felt like our home, and it made last minute arrangements so much more relaxed and easy. Plus, they made breakfast and homemade cookies each day, and everything was delicious. This is to say, staying at the inn itself for the weekend was really a wonderful experience and augmented the entire weekend. The actual wedding was everything I could have hoped for, and that is due in no small part to the 1824 House. We planned everything from afar, as this was a destination wedding, and so choosing the 1824 House was probably the best choice we made. From the moment we booked them, everything else fell into place so quickly. They have wonderful relationships with other vendors, who are familiar with the venue, and who they work with regularly, so everything was seamless. And it's beyond beautiful. I cannot s...

  • We truly had an amazing experience working with the 1824 House for our September wedding. My husband and I looked at dozens of venues in the Mad River Valley, however we chose the 1824 house for it's beautiful location, friendly staff, and affordable pricing. Although were were not pressured into using the vendors recommended by the 1824 House, they were able to find us a wonderful local florist as well as an amazing catering/linen company. They made the inn feel like a home by opening their doors to all of our family and friends for the entirety of our wedding weekend. The inn has beautiful and unique rooms that were able to accommodate the majority of our wedding party and immediate family (which included our dog!). The daily breakfasts were delicious and they accommodated all food allergies/requests from the bridal party. Although the day itself was as blur, all of our guests left telling us the food was amazing, the venue was beautiful, and it was an amazing party! We 100% recom... Read more

  • Our wedding at 1824 House was picture perfect. We had so much flexibility in our vision and the staff is super laid back and helpful. Food from Occasions catering was delicious. People are talking about it non stop. We got lucky with perfect weather but I felt good about our rain plan options too. We felt prepared and ready to party going into the weekend. Lots of planning and back and forth over email but when you're planning a wedding remotely it's the easiest way to keep track of it all. Book your wedding here! You won't regret it. Thanks Ladies, it's been a pleasure working with you. Kind of sad it's over. PS- the mini chicken and waffles were a hit!

  • The inn, the barn and the grounds were all beautiful with a spectacular view of the fall foliage. Emily & Matt were most welcoming and accommodating and the meals they prepared were wonderful! Our guests who stayed at the inn for the weekend of our wedding all raved about their experience and felt it was a very special part of our celebration. The barn proved to be a perfect location for our reception and the staff were all phenomenal!

  • The 1824 House helped us plan a dream come true wedding. I was a very DIY bride, including making my own wedding cake, designing all my table decor, and dreaming up a last minute indoor altar with candles/boxes, and the 1824 House was more than supportive the whole time! My husband and I also included Lithuanian traditions throughout our day, including smashing plates on an iron table saw in the middle of our cocktail hour, and the 1824 House made the transitions graceful and seamless. We had dreamed of an outdoor ceremony, but classic Vermont we had got hit with a Nor’easter on our wedding with about 3” of snow! Hallie and Connie moved our 100 person ceremony inside without any stress on our part, and created the most beautiful intimate of ceremonies. They work with you every step of the planning, and were completely transparent about financial aspects as well, which made us feel 1000x more comfortable working with them as opposed to other venues we looked at! We can’t say enoug... Read more

    Oh Grace, Thank you for your kind reviews! We were of course concerned about the snow and sorry because we knew an outdoor ceremony was a priority for you. In the end, opening those big barn doors and having the snow falling behind you while you were still inside was the best of both worlds! I kept waiting for Bing Crosby to walk in...if you haven't seen A White Christmas, check it out and you'll know what I mean. You were the model bride in so many ways! Best to you and Cameron, Connie, Hallie, Emily and team

  • If you are looking for a friendly, inviting, and positively gorgeous Vermont wedding setting, you've found it in 1824 House! My husband and I fell in love with this venue a year ago when we met the wonderful innkeeper Emily who made us feel right at home, and that feeling of welcoming continued right on through our special day two weeks ago. Flexible, generous and kind, the current substitute innkeeper Stacy kept up that warm family feel -- sharing her personal inner-tubes and showing us the best spot to relax and raft on the river, and crafting the most adorable "minion" pancake for my nephew's 4th birthday which was the day after our wedding. Our guests fell just as in love with the inn, its gorgeous barn, and even the hilltop ceremony site over the course of our wedding too. We could not be happier with this stunning venue and all the kind people who surround it!

  • The 1824 House couldn't have been a more beautiful venue to have your wedding and the staff was incredibly helpful and professional. Our wedding day was perfect and it wouldn't have been nearly as beautiful without the help of the staff.

  • My overall experience with 1824 House was a pretty positive one. We had the best day of our lives and everything went off without a hitch, and we couldn't be more pleased with that aspect. My only advice is that you make sure you go over every single charge in heavy detail and make sure that your estimate is what it is beforehand so that you are not overwhelmingly surprised afterwards. I felt that charges for lots of things were just not relayed to me in any way and the spreadsheet for my estimate was also not adding up correctly and neither them nor we discovered it until after the wedding was over and we were held fully accountable for any mistakes made. Most of the people that we worked with were behind accommodating and helpful, I only had a few instances where I felt I was not being listened to. I do recommend them as long as you are extremely on top of your finances and make sure that everything is discussed in depth beforehand. Several thousand dollars different than originally ...

    Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent event. We are grateful for your fond memories of your wedding day. Our top priority is your happiness and we are deeply saddened by this error. In regards to your spreadsheet – we want you to know this has never happened to us before. We like our clients to have a full understanding of the costs up front. We take full responsibility for the oversight on your estimate and are quite embarrassed about the error. As you know, we are a family run business running the 1824 House, Occasions Catering and the Linen Shop. Your catering coordinator is no longer with our company and we have implemented new policies to double check the financial calculations to make sure this never happens again. We certainly apologize if you felt we weren’t listening – our goal is to give more than you expect and we will address this with staff for future events. Congratulations once again and we wish you many years of happiness. Sincerely, Connie Mendell Owner
