  • A beautiful venue run by a lovely couple who sincerely care about their property and clients! Waldo and Shirley were great to work with and helped us wade through a myriad of details both prior to and during the wedding. I'm a very particular event planner and I would definitely recommend working with them!

  • Waldo and Shirley are two of the most pleasant people I've met and their home is just as amazing. I know the people helping us plan our wedding spent a lot of time at their residence prior to the big day and even dropped in unannounced on a few occasions but Waldo and Shirley could not have been more welcoming and it was very apparent throughout the weekend that they were more than happy to meet our needs. Their venue is spectacular and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an intimate venue with a great view and in a great location.

    Thank you so much Pat! The pleasure was all ours. We so enjoyed meeting you guys. You have a wonderful family. Stay in touch and please visit us when you're in the area!

  • We knew when we visited Blue Hill Farm that this was the venue for us because of the charming, intimate, and homey feel, and it more than exceeded our expectations! Waldo & Shirley have a very customized and friendly approach to each wedding-- they try to understand the feel you're going for and work with you to refine the details. Their personal touch spanned from advising on how best to use the space to showcasing the stunning scenery to making breakfast sandwiches for the bridesmaids on the morning of our wedding to connecting us with someone to groom our puppy to be the cutest ring-bearer ever :) We were going for a fun, not-too-stuffy, and somewhat intimate event (we had about 115 guests in total) and the combination of outdoor ceremony + tented dinner + dancing in the carriage house was absolutely perfect. We had an amazing dance party in the carriage house while guests also had the chance to take a break to roast marshmallows around the firepit. There was a lot of fle... Read more

  • This venue is stunning, and everyone who attended our wedding complimented us! The best day of our life (so far) was made possible by the gorgeous views on the Blue Hill Farm property!

  • Having our wedding at Blue Hill Farms was hands down the best decision we made! The Owners, Shirley and Waldo are AMAZING and went above and beyond to make our day incredible. The “selling factor” for us when searching for a venue was just how at home we felt when we first met them and how easy it was to see their excitement to have us become a part of the Blue Hill Farm family! We were also fortunate enough to use their daughter Drew as our “day of coordinator” and there is no way we could’ve had the wedding of our dreams without her. You can tell Shirley, Waldo and Drew really love what they do and took the time to gain a personal relationship with us and really get to know us and see our vision as clear as we did. Their knowledge of the venue and vast experience made everything run seamlessly! They all made the wedding planning process so easy and Were always a phone call or email away (there was ALOT of emails and calls haha). The views look good in pictures, then absolu... Read more

  • Waldo and Shirley's farm is stunning and was the perfect place to host our family and friends for our big day. What attracted me most was the ability to create whatever ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception that I wanted with their versatile outdoor space and buildings. We also brought in a doughnut food truck and lit the bonfire for s'mores. Blue Hill is always adding furniture and new elements to their farm which is exciting and also gives you the option to rent items from them at a discounted rate. Their package pricing was reasonable compared to other vendors and allows you access to the house from mid day Friday to Sunday morning, which allows you to host a rehearsal dinner and get ready for the wedding all in the same spot. Hiring a bus service to alleviate parking concerns is key. Waldo and Shirley will work with you every step of the way and share past weddings/ideas with you to help you make decisions. Blue Hill Farm did not disappoint and will always hold a special place in ... Read more

  • Words can not begin to express our gratitude and happiness to Waldo and Shirley, the owners and hosts of Blue Hill Farm. To say that our daughter's wedding was everything she dreamed of seems trite. But it was. And I know, as her mom, that she would not have felt that way if it weren't for Waldo and Shirley. Not only is their property absolutely breathtaking, but they are the sweetest, most patient, most generous hosts we could have ever hoped to work with. They not only answered every email we sent in an expedient manner (and we sent a lot!!), but they allowed us to come to the farm on numerous occasions during the planning phase so we could figure out all of the details. This was critical because our daughter lives in Dallas, so we had to do a lot of the planning with her virtually. At every turn, Waldo and Shirley were there to assist us. Honestly, by the end of this whole thing, I feel like we are now family. Thank you Waldo and Shirley from the bottom of our hearts for mak... Read more

    Heather - We can't thank you enough for your very kind words. We enjoyed every minute of Emily and Pat's wedding. Your team was super organized and so very nice every single step of the way. Let's put that dinner on the calendar soon. And give our best to everyone. ~ Shirley

  • We couldn’t have asked for a better place for our special day! Shirley and Waldo were fantastic to work with! They were incredibly helpful. They had a list of vendors they had used in the past which really helped us get started with the planning of our own wedding. Communicating with them was incredibly easy as they always responded to our emails promptly. They were very organized and laid out expenses in a spread sheet which made it much easier for us to pick and choose things we needed for the big day. Both were willing to help out with whatever they could and if we had any questions they’d have answers for us! Cameron and I did our rehearsal dinner at this location as well and both Shirley and Waldo were so great with helping us set up for this event as well as with the day of the wedding. As the bride I felt calm and collected because I felt like we were in great hands. My bridesmaids, mother and I all spent the night at the venue the night before so we could get ready brig...

  • Our daughter and son-in-law were married at Blue Hill Farm in August, 2019. Waldo and Shirley Tibbetts' spectacular property provided the perfect setting for a spectacular weekend. From their gorgeous, warm home where the bridal party of 8 spent Friday night in four guest rooms, waking to Shirley's delicious breakfast, a morning run through historic Waterford and a fun day of hair and make up in their spacious bridal area upstairs, to the picture perfect setting for the ceremony on their expansive front lawn overlooking Sugarloaf Mountain, to cocktails around their lovely carriage house and pool, to a night of dining and dancing under a gorgeous tent...the event couldn't have been more perfect. Waldo and Shirley were helpful every step of the way with suggestions and ideas (working with a wedding planner who knew the venue was a huge plus), and Shirley, who is a fabulous graphic designer, stepped in to help us days before the wedding when our programs, menus and signage needed a rede...

    Hi Rachel - I thought I replied to this a while back but now I don't see it. : / Oh well - as you know we absolutely loved hosting Ariel's and Brendan's beautiful wedding. You guys really did it right, you hired amazing vendors who pulled off a spectacular event. The photos are amazing. We were honored to host this for you guys. Let's get together for coffee or something one day. Miss you! ~ Shirley

  • We had a 250 person wedding at Blue Hill Farm. Shirley and Waldo were extremely accommodating and the venue was stunning on our big day. It was everything we imagined and more! We used the front lawn as our cocktail hour, the back lawn (with a tent) for dinner and the Carriage House with the extended dance floor for the party. Overall we wouldn't change a thing and this venue comes highly recommended.

  • Shirley and Waldo were absolutely fantastic to us throughout our planning process. The venue is so gorgeous, and they are so engaged in their clients big day. They work tirelessly to help your vision come to fruition, and care immensely about the bride, groom and all involved. They are prompt, professional and dynamic! I am happy to say that not only did they go above and beyond every time, but I have created a wonder bond with them that I will always value and cherish. Hire them!

  • Blue Hill Farm was the perfect venue for our vision for our wedding. The gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony, the beautiful and expansive grounds, and the flexibility the space offers made the day exactly what we wanted. The space flows naturally from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. As the reception progressed guests could join the fun on the dance floor, relax by the pool, or enjoy the roaring fire Waldo built. It was a blistering hot August day, but we preferred the sun over rain! Waldo and Shirley were incredibly helpful throughout the lead up and on the big day. We were a bit more on the DIY-end for certain things, and they were very accomodating of storing things or offering items they had on hand. When we had an unconventional request and wanted our bartender and his buddy from our every-Friday bar to handle drinks at our wedding, Blue Hill worked with us to find a solution that allowed us to have a dream team set of bartenders but with the right insurance that kept eve...

    Hi Matt- Sorry for the late response! It's been a little crazy around here. Our last wedding of the season is on Saturday. Thank you so much for taking the time for writing a thorough review and for your kind words. We loved hosting your wedding and we wish you the best in your world travels! P.S. Going forward we're including all the props and even tables and chairs as part of our packages. ; )

  • I have always considered myself an “I’ll know it when I see it” kind of person, whether that is on small decisions such as “what should I order for dinner?”, to slightly larger things like, “what clothes should I buy for this event?”. It also has since translated to much larger, life-defining decisions such as, “ is that the person I want to marry?” and most recently, “is this the place where I want to get married?”. When it came to the person I wanted to marry, my decision was made the first day I met my wife (cliché claxon, but it’s true), just as the place where I wanted to marry her became clear the moment we went to Blue Hill Farm. The truth is, we visited one place in total on our search because we found everything we wanted in this one beautiful home on top of a hill; I say the word “home” here purposefully, as the feeling you get from when Waldo and Shirley first walk out their home to greet you, with all the dogs in tow, is that you have become...

    Josh & Katie! Wow, just wow. We are blown away and so incredibly appreciative of this review! It is the most thorough we have ever gotten and capsulizes our little slice of heaven venue better than our own website :-) We are deeply touched that we were able to make such an impression on you and your families. You were a lovely couple and it was a magical weekend. As we said then, you and your families are part of the Blue Hill Farm family of happy couples and that is the ultimate gift for us. We would love to see you both again, maybe come out for a night or two in the off season when you need a break and a recharge :-) Our best to you both! Waldo & Shirley

  • Working with Waldo and Shirley at Blue Hill Farms was a wonderful and stress free experience. The sight was stunningly beautiful and their assistance was so helpful. Our June 15 wedding was a dream come true and our guests were awed by the venue. Blue Hill farms was an amazing setting for a fairy tale day.

  • The owners Waldo and Shirley were wonderful they really helped us plan our daughters September wedding. Sense the day we walked onto their amazing rustic but very elegant property we all new this was the place for the ceremony and reception. Shirley even gave me a great wedding planner recommendation if you need a place that's comfortable and accommodating this B&B is the place for you. My husband and I cant say enough about these two wonderful people that have created an amazing place.. Thanks BHF Waldo and Shirley we will be back.
