The venue hall is a beautiful place to have a wedding. It does come with some decorations that the owners have and do not want you to remove them from the walls, or gazebo (outside chapel). We paid our bill and we had a space to use - that's pretty much it. It rained on our wedding day, and as there wasn't really much direction as to what to do having to move our ceremony inside - I will say I think our wedding looked more beautiful inside than having to go outside in the chapel. But even our limo driver took notice when Dave opened the car door and told my bride that we needed to start...

I'll point out that we were told they were paving the drive way which they really are not planing on doing - they should have a PAVED platform where the limo drops off the bridal party on inclement weather as to not get their dress muddy - it would be nice considering they said they were paving the road.

One of the biggest hassles was communicating with Dave when we should be able to get into the venue. We were told that we wouldn't know until 1 week before if we would be able to get in at 9am the day of to set up, only after being offered the great deal of securing the morning of for an additional $1500 deposit if there wasn't a morning wedding booked. Well as it was nice to get in at 9am, and he certainly let us know exactly 1 week before, when I called and paid the remainder. But the guy is a jerk about it because he had 3 or 4 different couples come in on our wedding day while we're setting up to show the venue, and he even had the audacity to ask if they could sit at the tables we were setting up our decorations on... full well knowing he had showings on my wedding day and could have put our mind at ease weeks before he did.

We forgot our steamer, and had to call and say "we left his here when can we come and get it" before they acknowledged it. It would be nice to get a phone call we forgot something like a garment steamer. It was on the porch of his home...

Arrowhead Acres responded with the following comments:

Our “Chapel in the Pines” is a beautiful naturally maintained outdoor venue in a pine grove with a thick carpet of pine needles. If we have inclement weather, the wedding ceremony is moved inside with as little as 5 minutes notice (We have not found a way to control the weather yet). During the Thursday night rehearsals if inclement weather is forcasted for the weekend we have the rehearsal both outside and inside. If a bride chooses to enter the hall by the back door (pine needle covered pathway from the chapel) it is her choice. There is a carpeted front entrance walkway as well as other choices. Paving over the natural pathway would be in sharp contrast with the natural beauty of the chapel. We never said we were paving the roads – we are resurfacing them with crushed asphalt and rolling them smooth.

Every event at our facility has a guaranteed minimum of 2 hours for setup. We have the ability to schedule two events in a day on weekends (11-4 and 6-11). Every couple is told that if we do not have an early event they can come in at 9AM at no charge, with the stipulation that they will be working around our staff (cleaning, tours, maintenance, etc.). We do not give away the extra 7 hours of setup time until there is little or no chance of another paid booking. We do reserve the right to show the venue especially on weekends during hours when there is no paid function in progress.

Apon receiving a call regarding a lost steamer we searched the building and found the steamer inside a storage closet where the bridal party setup crew had put it. My wife carried the steamer to our home and called them back to tell them where they could pick it up. When the bridal party setup crew finished they should have placed the steamer in the bridal room that is provided for the bridal party and all their personal belongings.

It was a okay place to have the wedding, a few things what I didn't like about it, but overall it was a good wedding there. A few things why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because, 1) the bathrooms are terrible. I know it's petty but people were complaining to me about it during the wedding, the light was out in the handicap/bride bathroom so my wife had to use the regular one and she had no room, plus we were told it smelled terrible. 2) Also, another reason is because after pictures were done my bride and I went into the hall and instantly were sweating and hot. So we had asked them to turn on the AC. The wife response was " oh you're hot? I'm freezing right now" so she had the heat on, not a big deal cause then they had turn the air on for us afterwards. 3) one other thing that made me rethink about this place was after we had signed the contract to have our wedding there. I had contacted them asking about what if we had 4 kids there that under 3 and another that was just 6 months old if we have to pay full price since it is a pay by person venue, and we were told yes, if they sit in a seat they have to be considered an adult, I was really flabbergasted by that remark since 2 only stayed for the ceremony and and was only (1) 2.5 year old and a 6 month old that we had to pay a full price for. But they were a lot of good about this place as well. 1) there was NO wedding on the day of, before us, so they allowed us in at 9am to start setting up which was awesome because it made everything easier. 2) everything was super clean in the chapel in the pines, all benchs were cleaned, the beehive that was in the chapel was removed after I had noticed it, and the morning of we were setting up, they literally had an army of people making sure everything was clean. But eventually did

Arrowhead Acres responded with the following comments:

The bathrooms are cleaned just before every event - When we allow bridal parties to come in 9 hours before their event, it is with the understanding that our "setup and cleaning army" will be working around them. If any of the lights had not been turned on yet, our employees would have been happy to turn them on as well as the automatic air fresheners.

Our heating/air conditioning system is set to 70F until the bride arrives. The bride is told that she is "Queen For The Day" and she decides what we set the temperatures at. If she wants it warmer or colder the system is powerful enough to make the desired adjustments within minutes.

Our banquet hall has a minimum fee but children under 2 years old are never counted or charged for. We also provide high chairs and booster seats at no charge.

Beehives and bird nests are routinely removed from the Chapel Gazebo as part of the cleaning process.

Most of these concerns would not have existed if the bridal party had arrived at a normal time rather than 9 hours early.

The ceremony area is beautiful. That is what sold us on using this venue. They also have a great sound system set up in the ceremony area so you can play any songs you choose and everyone can here the ceremony.
The reception hall is nice but a bit plain. They have a lot of plain white decorations up that you have to leave in place and work around.
The cost was pretty high but they do completely list the price of everything on their website which is nice. Overall I am very glad that we chose this venue for our wedding. It was a beautiful day.

Very beautiful grounds, rustic pavilion could use some updating on the sides that enclose in rain or cold. The contract makes no mention of a fee to decorate the night before. If you are able to do it the morning of there isn't a fee. Who has that kind of time on their wedding day? Dave was quick to respond to emails, gazebo area was clean and had flowers, fire was a nice way to end our night. The only complaint was the night of the rehearsal when Dave asked me in front of wedding party and officiant how I was planning on paying him in cash or credit card because he wouldn't take a check at that point. I had mailed it but he didn't receive it till the following day. I was embarrassed and wished he would've pulled me aside.

Our ceremony and reception were both held here and it was perfect. My husband and I were treated respectfully and found the owners to be very pleasant to coordinate and work with, this includes the rehearsal where we misunderstood the time and were an hour late and they had no issue staying and helping us through. They ask that the decorations they had provided be left in place and we found it more than a success to decorate however else we wanted to to create a beautiful atmosphere. The grounds are gorgeous and well-maintained, they even filled in some of the larger bumps in the driveway when they learned we would be transporting our cake ourselves (Thank you so much!!). Overall we would highly recommend Arrowhead Acres to anyone looking to be married among the trees!

Arrowhead Acres was wonderful and absolutely perfect for our wedding! Dave and Vickie ran things extremely smoothly. Great value, excellent rustic feel, outdoor ceremony area with gazebo is adorable and well kept. They even let us bring a hotdog stand to the fire! You can use any vendor for everything but the alcohol, they make you use the Bartending Services of New England - this was not a pleasant experience for us (one of the bartenders did not show up until halfway through the reception!) However in the grand scheme of things Arrowhead Acres was worth the hassle of the Bartending service. Everything that Dave and Vickie could have controlled was excellent, the only issue was the bartending, which was unfortunately out of their control.

I had my wedding at Arrowhead Acres in September 2014. This place was so great when we first looked at it. The owners were so nice. However the day of my wedding; they were constantly following my family and friends around. They were treating them like children/criminals. My 6 year old nephew and 5 year old cousin were dancing on the the stage and the owners yelled at them to get off. To yell at young kids like that is completely unacceptable. They should have gotten me or my husband and we would've taken care of it.

Arrowhead Acres responded with the following comments:

The only guests that have ever been followed are those that have been repeatedly observed leaving the hall with empty beer glasses and returning with full glasses from coolers in car trunks. There are signs making it very clear that outside alcohol is not allowed.

We have never yelled at anyone’s children. If we thought they were in danger we would have asked them to leave the DJ stage. 4 and 6 year old unsupervised children playing on the DJ stage with electrical, microphone, and speaker wires would have prompted immediate action. The chance of electrical danger or a trip and fall from the stage is a very real safety hazard for 4 and 6 year old unsupervised children. Not a situation in which a delay in action is advisable.

We found that Arrowhead Acres was a beautiful secret of a gem and was still reasonably priced. We are completely satisfied with the memories of our special day at this amazing venue!

I also wanted to share from the mouth of the groom's grandmother (don't mind the caps, that is how she wrote it):
IF ANYONE IS GETTING MARRIED SOON ARROWHEAD ACRES IS THE PLACE TO DO IT. THE CEREMONY WAS VERY NICE, THE GROUNDS ARE AWESOME AND THE INSIDE RECEPTION WAS FANTASTIC. THE NICEST PLACE FOR A WEDDING I HAVE EVER BEEN TO.
