  • From the first time we went to visit Knowlton to the last minute of our reception, the venue and staff was nothing short of spectacular. The place speaks for itself with beautiful landscape, historic decor, and rustic feel. My husband and I loved that our guests had the entire place to ourselves on our special day- and that everyone was free to roam the grounds and building (the barn and horses were a big hit for the little ones!) . At night, the firepits in the back gave guests a nice break from dancing and drinking inside. Not only did Knowlton Mansion look impressive, but the food and drinks were delicious! Everyone raved about the cooking (and I have never been to a wedding with so many hot horderves.) I think the biggest and most pleasant surprise for us was how friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating the staff was. Lori helped us throughout the months leading up to our wedding. She was always prompt to reply to our questions and seemed genuinely excited for us each t... Read more

  • The Knowlton Mansion is a hidden gem in Northeast Philadelphia. As soon as we walked through the doors we knew it was the perfect place to have our wedding reception. The Knowlton Mansion is full of history, has beautiful grounds including horses, and a very large ballroom made to feel as if it was original to the historical mansion. My husband and I were looking for something different (not a typical hotel ballroom) to host our wedding and the Knowlton Mansion was perfect. The service was also impeccable! Lori followed us through the entire process, answered all of our questions, and made our requests come alive. She paid wonderful attention to detail. We received many wonderful compliments from our guests (they RAVED about the food!) and are very thankful to everyone at the Knowlton Mansion for everything they did to make our day special. We highly recommend the Knowlton Mansion if you're looking for a unique place to host your wedding filled with much character and impeccabl... Read more

  • I can't say enough good things about this venue! I had my ceremony and reception here on 5/16/15 and it was magical. Jeannie was the manager who made sure everything went smoothly all day long. We had a bridal assistant named Dee who was the best! We never had an empty drink in our hands and she made sure we got to try all of the food which was delicious. I am still hearing compliments about the food and the service. The grounds were beautiful and they mansion felt like a fairytale. I worked with Lori to plan everything and that was such a pleasant experience. She was quick to respond when I had questions and was always so sweet. I have not one negative thing to say. It was just the perfect day thanks to them! I would recommend this venue to anyone.

  • I would highly recommend the Knowlton Mansion. Our daughters wedding was held there in early May 2015. The ceremony was held outside: the grounds were absolutely beautiful! The reception inside was also beautiful. We dealt with Lori and she was fabulous- very helpful and accommodating. Our wedding coordinator that day was Eileen and she was equally fabulous. The food was amazing and the whole atmosphere of the mansion was total elegance. The guests are sill talking about it being the best wedding ever- even three weeks later!

  • My husband and I INSTANTLY fell in love with this venue the moment we stepped foot inside. We knew it would be where we were going to get married. They were VERY accommodating and easy to get a hold of whenever I had a question. They helped us stay with in our budget and showed us ways to keep costs down too. They made it super easy for me to have everything at one place, on such an amazing, beautiful night. Knowlton mansion had the most amazing staff I had ever had the pleasure of working with,all of my assistance from planning stages to the day were nothing short of amazing! Making it so easy for me to be able to bring in all my own other vendors. They thought of every little detail, and were extremely helpful with any specific requirements I had asked for. They were hand down worth every penny spent, and I got MORE than I asked for on so many occasions from these guys. I would absolutly recommend this to ANYONE. Friend or not. Have your wedding here, because I can guarantee you will... Read more

  • Thanks to the team at Knowlton Mansion and Conroy Catering my husband and I had the most amazing day we could have ever hoped for. The staff helped us ever step of the way and made everything for us effortless. The mansion was beautiful even with our rainy day and compared to similar venues we could not beat the price. There are too many good things to say about Knowlton from the atmosphere to the details in the space, but the most amazing part is what a great time everyone who went to our wedding had, but more importantly what a fantastic time my husband and I had. You simply can't do better. Thanks to everyone at Knowlton for doing such an incredible job for us.

  • I have been a wedding guest and had my wedding at Knowlton and I want to go back again. The ambiance is incredible, fantastic food, great value and excellent service. They are very flexible and let us add on time and we had our choice where in the night that could be (1 1/2 cocktail hour was great!) Our guests loved the wine cellar option and they are building a fire pit which should be really fun. They offer a lot if different packages for your budget which we really liked. We did the bronze and still felt like we had great value. The hors d'ouvers flowed the whole cocktail hour, people loved the cake which was just the general cake nothing extra, the bar was always open. We got compliments on the service, food, ambiance, history and uniqueness of the venue. We really liked that guests could enjoy the rest of the house and outside patio when they needed a break from dancing. Its just a beautiful place to get married we could not be happier. A few above and beyonds that are wo... Read more

  • The Knowlton Mansion is amazing! For starters, it is a beautiful venue. The grounds are gorgeous too which makes for great photos. The staff are courteous, friendly, and professional. They attended to my every need. They made sure myself and the bridal party all got hors d'oeuvres even though we were taking pictures during cocktail hour. The food was excellent - everyone raved about it! The cake was great too. There is not one bad word I can say about the Knowlton. If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose the Knowlton Mansion!

  • We absolutely loved working with Conroy Catering to plan our wedding at the Knowlton Mansion. They were very professional and accomodating throughout the planning process. The mansion itself has so much character and absolutely beautiful grounds outside. We got rave reviews on the food choices and service from our guests. Everything was delicious!! The pastry cheif even made a sample of our cake for us to try out ahead of time and he custom made the entire thing to resemble a photo I had seen online. Absolutely the best service and georgous atmosphere at the mansion!!

  • The venue was absolutely beautiful and had a variety of charms that all guests and participants seemed to enjoy. We highly recommend Knowlton Mansion for your wedding ceremony and reception. This review offers some things to think about when planning your wedding event overall, and specifically at Knowlton.The food was excellent and the cake was one of the best we have ever tasted—there was a line for cake, which we’ve never seen at a wedding! The only critique of the cuisine was that the bartenders did not make our signature drink—the caipirinha— correctly, so the drink reportedly tasted like grain alcohol. From the day we chose the venue up until the day of the rehearsal, we worked exclusively with our Sales Consultant, who was very helpful, responsive and enthusiastic about our event. We had clear and regular communication and were able to get our questions answered immediately. She was accommodating with our requests and helped us make our event our own. However, we w...

  • We researched numerous reception venues in the Philadelphia area, and finally decided on Knowlton Mansion/Conroy Catering. A gem hidden in the Northeast part of Philadelphia, the venue location provides a country/vintage feel in the middle of a city. The size is accommodating for a large reception, we had close to 220 guests. The venue worked with us to bring in an outside caterer to provide the traditional cultural cuisine we were hoping to incorporate in addition to the american cuisine provided by Conroy. In the end, incorporating an outside caterer most likely added more cost to the wedding, however that is to be expected. There were a few mishaps that could have been avoided, however we believe that the details may have been overlooked due to the transition in catering coordinators. One recommendation: document all decisions and details prior to the final details meeting and review aforementioned at the meeting to avoid any questions on the day of event. Overall, the venue was a g... Read more

  • Knowlton Mansion was the perfect venue for our wedding. We wanted something rustic but elegant and it definitely had all of those qualities. Our guests loved looking in all the rooms and sampling wine in the wine cellar. Maria was a pleasure to work with and always was quick to respond to any questions we had. Dee and Eileen made sure things were flawless the day of. Dee made sure that we had food and drinks at our cocktail hour and throughout the night. We had our ceremony on site and immediately she was there to greet us at the end of the walkway with champagne. The outside made the perfect backdrop for our fall wedding. The food was excellent, I wish I was able to eat more of it, but I was so full. And the food came out piping hot which I do not find at many weddings. Our guests have been raving about everything, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!

  • This was our second daughter's wedding we gave at a Conroy Catering venue- one eight years ago at Glenn Foerd Mansion, this one at Knowlton Mansion. Throughout each planning process we were treated wonderfully...everyone responded professionally and knowledgeably to each of our many questions and concerns. Maria - our sales person - is a saint! Very knowledgeable and very responsive - knew the answer to almost every question, and the few times she didn't have the answer right away she found the answer and got back to us quickly! Alice was our daughter's wedding day attendant, and she was awesome! She had apparently familiarized herself with the couple's wishes and she made SURE she fulfilled them! They strongly wanted not to be one of those couple's who comes away from their wedding never having tasted the food they had so carefully chosen. They got to enjoy everything that was served thanks to Alice! Her patience and professionalism shown. There were a few small details th... Read more

  • Knowlton Mansion hosted our May 2013 wedding. Overall, the event was great. The space is beautiful, the staff is easy to work with, and the food is very good for catered wedding food. The pros, in no particular order: While were hoping to have our ceremony in their outdoor space, the weather had a different idea, and their inside ceremony space turned out to be very nice. We never thought twice about it, and if you're worried about how the photos will look, ours turned out very good. The food was very good, especially for catered wedding food. Our menu had the Salmon, NY Sirloin, and vegetarian stuffed pepper. We personally at the Salmon and Sirloin, and both were good. The Sirloin was even a little pink (again, good for catering cooking!). The venue lets guests walk throughout the house during the cocktail hour, and that worked out really well in that the guests actually spread out and checked out the place. They'll set up your own decorations, in our case family pictur... Read more
