  • I had my reception at the Pine Knob Carriage house (not the Mansion)-- the venue was beautiful! Everything turned out amazing when I arrived at the venue. However, the main issue of the night was the professionalism of the staff. Our head table had paid for champagne for the toasts, there was no champagne in sight- and no one would give us any answers as to why it was not there (we did end up getting it--- after all toasts and after most of the dinner had already been served...) When asked if we could have some drinks... we were told to "Get it yourself". I understand that there are rules etc.- it was more of the responses/attitude we got from the staff and BARTENDER (one was GREAT the other--- was having a bad day). We had one bartender that was openly complaining about someone at our wedding to other attendants. Very unprofessional. When the wedding coordinator finally came to the venue (there were two weddings that night) things did get better. She really tried very hard to mak... Read more

  • I had the pleasure of celebrating my daughters marriage to her soul mate on Saturday, June 22 at the Mansion. Every part of our celebration was amazing! Lisa worked with my daughter, son-in-law and I for over a year to ensure their celebration would be perfect. Without a doubt Lisa and the entire staff at Pine Knob Mansion are the best in the business. From the help with our endless details that we planned for over a year, to the excellent service and outstanding meal, everything was absolutely perfect! If you are looking for an amazing venue that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime then you should check out Pine Knob Mansion.

  • Pine Knob was a great place to have a ceremony and reception! Both the Carriage House where I had my ceremony and the Manson where I had my reception are absolutely beautiful and make for gorgeous pictures. The food and service was phenomenal. Lisa helped coordinate everything and was more then happy to answer each and everyone of my 100 emails. The staff are professional and kind, overall it's a great place.

  • We got married this August (2013) and had our ceremony and reception at the Pine Knob Carriage House. We worked with Lisa from the beginning with all the preparations and she was great with all the planning. Lisa was very responsive to all my emails and questions. However, a few weeks prior to our wedding at a final meeting she mentioned she was going to be on vacation possibly, then on the Wednesday before our wedding she mentioned she would be working but not working at the carriage house that she needed to be at the Mansion. We felt this was unfair since she was our coordinator. She assisted with our ceremony and seemed to be training someone else in the processes. We were promised to get Sharron another person who worked there for 9 years to do our dinner service and we ended up getting the person that was getting trained during the ceremony. We had a lot of issues doing the reception. We had cut the cake right when we walked in but the staff had old paper work that said we were cu... Read more

  • Pine Knob is a beautiful and unique venue. We chose Pine Knob because of the gorgeous mansion and gardens. The food was amazing! They cooked the NY strips perfectly and my eggplant was delicious as well. The staff made everything easy and coordinated the whole day for us. I have heard from other brides how Pine Knob staff has saved the day! Pricey but you get your moneys worth!

  • We selected the PK Carriage House after we saw its beautiful grounds, outdoor ceremony space, and large reception space. Lisa was easy to work with at first but we soon found out that she was a little pushy when it came to decisions. Day of Lisa was nowhere to be found. Tables outside were not wiped off and the staff refused to wipe them down because they had done it for yesterday's wedding. My husband ended up wiping them down due to rude staff. The ceremony chairs were set up wrong. My husband and his groomsmen planned to have pictures taken at the mansion which was previously approved by Lisa since there was no wedding scheduled at the Mansion. They were yelled at by another woman in the Mansion for stepping foot inside. While outside she continued to yell at them telling them where they could and couldn't take photos. Back in the bridal room, our snack tray arrived about 30 min prior to our ceremony starting and was barely touched. Before my husband was about to enter the ceremony,... Read more

  • I couldn't have imagined a more perfect location for my wedding!! I chose to have the wedding at the Carriage House and the grounds and hall were gorgeous! The service during the wedding was excellent - they were right on top of things and even carried my husbands and my plates through the buffet and dished out the food we wanted. The food was delicious (we all really loved the chicken with cheese sauce)! They were flexible to allow me to come in early the day before the wedding since there was no event scheduled so I could set up my centerpieces and the room (control freak) exactly how I wanted it! The staff was so friendly and they went above and beyond when it came to helping with my needs. My only two downfalls (and they are relatively minor): The bridal suite became VERY hot and there was no fan anywhere. Sweat+huge dress+make-up=no fun. Also, I loved the pavilion, but we wanted to decorate it ourselves but they had no ladders or stools and everything was too high to reach... Read more

  • WONDERFUL venue for our ceremony and reception! They do book quick so flexibility of date is not always there. We originally wanted a Saturday date but we opted for a Friday since the original date was already booked. In the end having a Friday wedding gave us some price breaks that helped out financially. Every single guest commented on the great food and beautiful atmosphere of the Mansion. Some left that night commenting that they would be passing the suggestion on to others. My only suggestion is that the Mansion crew consider distributing the snack baskets earlier than 4pm when ordered for the bridal suites. Most of the food from the basket wasn't even touched because by then we were to busy with photos to eat. The other item of concern was that they didn't allow Parsonage Events to come in until 3:30 with the other vendors. Normally Parsonage would be allowed in a little earlier to set up but for some reason they weren't allowed in to the Mansion until 3:30 when they had a LOT of... Read more

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Mansion in August 2012. We both thought it was the most beautiful, perfect day and the staff was all wonderful. The hors d'oeuvres, drinks and dinner were all spectacular. All of our guests raved about the food...especially the hors d'oeuvres. Lisa deserves special mention, as she was always kind & patient...even during the last 1-2 weeks when everything was especially hectic. She stayed after-hours the day of our rehearsal to ensure my MIL could access the rehearsal area, since she is wheelchair-bound. She was also there the day of the wedding and helped keep things moving smoothly. We only had a couple of recommendations/concerns: 1. The bridal party did not get a chance to enjoy the hors d'oeuvres, since they are served after the ceremony during cocktail hour. We were all busy with photos during that time, though at the end of the night we found the staff had placed a special tray of hors d'oeuvres up in the Peppino Room. ... Read more

  • Dinner service took over an hour once guests had been seated causing a schedule back log which led to the live band, being contracted for 3 hours, only able to play for 1.5hrs. The staff drank the bridal champagne and we overheard them in the kitchen: “Is anyone here sober? You need to start drinking!” May explain mistakes made during it such as: a number of vegetarian meals being forgotten, the best man never received his dinner and the wait staff responded defensively by insisting that we had miscounted prior to the wedding. Poor and combative attitude from the bar tenders, who demanded tips from guests (paid in advance by family).While the groom is on the phone making arrangements with a local bar and cab company in effort to get transportation, he begins to complain to his best man. An older man overhears the complaints about the cabs and local bar and misinterprets them as complaints about Pine Knob Mansion. He interrogates and insults the groom and best man. The groom tells h... Read more

  • I had my wedding at the Pine Knob Mansion on July 21st, 2012. It was a difficult wedding to plan because I was out of state, and Lisa at Pine Knob did a fairly good job responding to my inquiries. The best part about Pine Knob is their facility. The mansion and the gardens are among the most beautiful in the state. However, the food was AWFUL. We were not allowed to do any tasting before the wedding, and were forced to choose from a menu. For the wedding reception, Lisa was no where to be found, and the head waitress was in charge. We started dinner 45 minutes late. The filet mignon was overdone, and the chicken was hard and cold. Our head table didn't even have water. During the dancing portion of the evening, an older man whom I had never seen before came into the wedding and started yelling/swearing at the band and DJ that they were in breach and that he was going to shut down the whole wedding because we hadn't closed the doors to the gardens because of noise laws. He was completel... Read more

  • I am so happy that we had our wedding here at Pine Knob! We were assisted by Lisa in our planning process and she really made it easy for us. She was very helpful and answered all of my many questions. We held the ceremony outside under the pavillion which turned out beautiful and we did not have to worry about what to do if it rained (which it did in the afternoon). The reception space looked gorgeous, everything ran on schedule and dinner was amazing. The food was so so good! (I loved the Chicken Kopa) The staff was friendly and they set up everything for me, even things that they first said they don't normally do. The only complaint I had was they have Friday weddings and all my guests were out of town so I couldn't host my rehearsal there which was really no big deal. :) I would highly recommend Pine Knob to anyone who wants an easy planning process and a beautiful wedding.
