  • Due to Covid we had to postpone our wedding first and then change our venue completely at the last minute from MA to CT. I just made a list of places to call and Sandy answered and said she had my date open. We met with her a few hours later and loved the venue. She was super nice and accommodating and she made everything so simple. She always said "no problem" and at first I'll be honest I was skeptical. But seriously it was "no problem"! Everything was beautiful even in a tent, being outdoors, and during a pandemic. She understood my decorating style and it was simply beautiful. The staff worked so well together I can't say enough good things about Giunmarco, otherwise known as "G". He was by our side the whole night he knew when we needed something, he's super polite and he even knew how to bustle my dress! We received nothing but complements about the food especially the prime rib, people actually said they have not had a piece of prime rib that good in years. Also, we had open bar... Read more

  • I got married at Maneeleys on 9/13 and I could not recommend this venue enough! Sandy was very responsive and accommodating from the day we booked last June, throughout the COVID uncertainty and even the night before with last minute changes! My now husband and I worked very hard to make sure our wedding would be safe for all of our guests and Maneeleys went above and beyond to put the safety of our guests as the #1 priority as well. Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was, and how professional and friendly the staff were. I must admit, I fell in love with the venue because of how incredible the Grand Lodge is so I was a little disappointed knowing we would be having an outdoor tented wedding instead but when I arrived at the venue the morning of I began to sob because of how gorgeous the set up in and around the tent was. If we had to do it over, we wouldn't change a single thing. It was truly the best day of our lives. Thank you t... Read more

  • Where do I even begin?! From start to finish Maneely’s was absolutely wonderful to work with. Sandy and Rebecca are a dream team. We had our ceremony in the Banquet room and the reception in the lodge. The location was easy to get to and the lodge was BEAUTIFUL. Both women were so accommodating to our wants and needs. We got our cake from Modern Pastry which was INCLUDED in the price of the venue and it was delicious! The food was amazing and everyone we talked to said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The drinks were also amazing. We had one man, G, who was our go-to guy throughout the night and he was on top of everything!! We had snacks and drinks brought to us all night. He even packed up all of the decor and put it in the back of my car. I can’t stress enough the high quality of service that Maneely’s offers. If I were to do this all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing.

  • I had my eyes set on the grand lodge at Maneeleys since before I was even engaged so when my big day came, naturally I ran here. This was the best decision I made for my big day. Sandy and Bruce were nothing short of amazing. Sandy really made the planning process a breeze, even during a pandemic which says ALOT. The venue is stunning, the staff is superb (especially “G” who was my right hand man the day of and was the absolute best), and the food is to die for! The pricing is the best around for everything you get, you truly can’t beat it. Maneeleys has a special place in my heart and I’m so happy we were married here and got to know Sandy, Bruce, and G.

  • Getting married in 2020 was not an easy thing to do. With the amazing support of Maneeley’s staff (Sandy and Rebecca) our special day was perfect. No question was left unanswered and they did everything in their power to make this day beautiful. The entire night we continued getting compliments on how great our venue was from all of our guests. From the decor, to the food, to the service, everything was 10/10. Bridal attendants were on top of everything and there to help with every little thing. 10/10 would recommend maneeleys for any event.

  • My FH knows the owner of the venue, he invited us to his New Years party we had a lot of fun he took care of us the whole night what ever we wanted we got. I told my FH it would be great if he has a barn like place come to find out he did. We went to visit and it was perfect. EXACTLY what we were looking for. Our wedding is Rustic and Maneeley's fits PERFECTLY!!! We booked them that same day! WEDDING 10/10/2020

  • Wedding planning can be stressful, never mind planning during a pandemic! Sandy was wonderful! She made sure everything was taken care of, and that everyone would be comfortable during these uncertain times. Our wedding was amazing down to every last detail. A night to remember with the help of the wonderful staff at Maneeleys!

  • We had the opportunity to get married at Maneeley's Grand Lodge on September 12, 2020. With everything that has been going on in the world through this pandemic, we were nervous that our wedding would not happen and if it was going to, it wouldn't be anything that we had our heart set on. We couldn't have been more wrong. Sandy was amazing throughout the entire process. She was very responsive and supportive. There was never a moment that we felt uncertain that our day would be everything we had hoped for and more. On the day of our wedding, their entire staff was incredible. Our guests were floored with their ability to run drinks, professionalism and overall warmth. We had the honor of working with Giunmarco. We had read other reviews about how amazing he is, but that is an understatement. He was everything we needed and more. We couldn't have asked for a better venue, staff and wedding day even through these difficult times.

  • From the moment we signed our contract, it was whatever we wanted on our wedding day. Whatever they could do to make the day perfect. If they didn't have a particular decor item (which I dont know how that is possible), I could purchase it and send them a picture of how I wanted to have it set up and they would do it. If there was a particular wine or alcohol your friends and family wanted, they bought it if they didn't have it. That is the best way to describe Maneeley's. They will do whatever it takes to make your day the best day of your life. Even with the recent pandemic, they worked with all the changes we needed to make in order to have a safe ceremony and reception. We changed our date 3 times! We got married Oct 9th. To accommodate couples, they set up a big tent on their beautiful green lawn in front of the lodge. It was as if you were getting two venues for the price of one. To say it was magical is an understatement. From the centerpieces, to the rustic signage,... Read more

  • From start to finish, it has been an amazing experience. We were set to get married in May 2020 but because of COVID we had to push it back. However, we got lucky when the state opened indoor capacity to 100 people. We were able to enjoy our wedding inside The Lodge at Maneeleys and it couldn’t have been a better experience. It was amazing from start to finish. Sandy was absolutely amazing helping with every question that I had, sometimes multiple times a day lol. G was also absolutely incredible during our wedding, following myself and my husband throughout to make sure we were fed and full of drinks. Every employee couldn’t have been nicer or more attentive. We recieved multiple complements on how beautiful the venue was and also how excellent the food was. It was amazing, I would recommend to anyone!!

  • Maneeley’s has everything we were looking for! Sandy was great to work with leading up to the big day, Bruce was wondering to chat with during our visits and we were absolutely amazed with our matradee- he was truly the jack of all trades from getting us drinks, to bustling my dress and cleaning up my husbands suit jacket after we got cake all over it. G truly made the experience above and beyond!
