My wife and I could not be any happier with Crystal Peak. We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at Crystal Peak and the service that John Roller and his staff provided us from through the entire process was wonderful! The outdoor ceremony area at Crystal Peak is the best we saw when we were looking at potential venues to host our wedding. John, the owner, is very hands on through the entire process, which we really liked. He stayed in communication with us during the months leading up to our wedding and made sure we got everything we wanted. The food was excellent and the wait staff was great.

We could not be any happier with how everything turned out. It was a perfect night that we will always remember and Crystal Peak was absolutely the best venue for our wedding!

I would definitely recommend Crystal Peak to any couple looking for a great place to have their wedding.

We recently had our wedding at Crystal Peak and they were amazing. John was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make sure the day was everything we wanted. They took care of us and were on hand for anything we needed. It was raining right before the wedding and we were desperate to have the wedding outside they gave us every chance to go outside and set back up as soon as the rain stopped. I can not speak highly enough of Crystal Peak and John, the venue is amazing, the room for the wedding party is great, the food was excellent. Great place to have a wedding.

My wife (fiance then) went up to Winsted and checked out the place, got a good feeling and told me she wanted me to check it out. I was skeptical because I wasn't really into using a banquet hall, but from the minute we entered, we were greeted with professionalism, personal care, a beautiful and spotless place in the most perfect location that one could find. John and his staff was incredible, the food and appetizers were adjusted for vegetarians and gluten free options. EVERYONE raved about the food, which was one thing that was super important to me. I found their prices very reasonable and was very happy with their service. I would absolutely recommend them to others.

I cannot express enough how wonderful our wedding was at Crystal Peak. My husband and I worked with John and we were very pleased with the high level of service we received. Everyone was professional and the price was very reasonable. They were able to work with any of the requests we had and made the whole planning process as straight forward and painless as possible. The food was out of this world! We went for a tasting about 5 months before the wedding and afterwards I would get cravings for their food. I couldn't wait for our wedding day so I could have their prosciutto wrapped chicken again. Everyone raved none stop. The grounds are beautiful and our photographer and videographer were able to get some pretty amazing shots. Everything about Crystal Peak was exactly what we were looking for.

I cannot state enough how wonderful it was to have Crystal Peak host our reception. The staff not only performed all expected services, they went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. When I accidentally drew up too many seats on the seating chart, they moved everything around with no fuss just so I wouldn't have to redo it all. When they saw a problem, they fixed it immediately. The food was delicious and creatively presented. The whole reception went smoothly, thanks to the dedication of the whole staff. Professional, accommodating, and over all as enthusiastic about our wedding as we were. I highly recommend this company to everyone.

Crystal Peak was fantastic!! I cannot rave enough about this venue. We searched long and hard before we found this place, and we knew it was perfect from the moment we got to the driveway. The venue itself is beautiful and the ceremony space is perfect. John Roller and his staff were amazing. The venue is chef-owned and it shows. The food was great and all the guests complimented me for days, in fact, the menu was a large reason why we chose the venue. Furthermore, John is great to work with - easy to communicate with, very responsive and aims to please! They know what they're doing here, everything with the wedding went flawless thanks to the staff. They were extremely attentive and pleasant.

I could go on for days about Crystal Peak, do yourself a favor and meet with John!!!

We worked with John from beginning to end. He was wonderful about helping us plan, as we had no clue what we even wanted! He was extremely flexible, as I provided a few last-minute changes, he went with the flow and we had an absolutely amazing wedding. I highly recommend this venue to anyone, for any occasion! I have been to a Christmas party and a few weddings here, and have had a wonderful experience each time! They truly know how to run the show, and keep any stress away from the bride and groom!

Our experience with Crystal Peak was INCREDIBLE. The food is amazing and not your typical menu, which we loved! Everything is gourmet, unique dishes created by the chef/owner, John. We chose a buffet style reception to save some money and it was fabulous. Guests enjoyed trying a little of everything because there were so many great choices! Each meeting we had with John left us more and more comfortable putting the reception in his hands. He answered any questions, no matter how small, over e-mail within a day. They were flexible if any details needed to be changed from our initial plan. What drew us to the venue initially was the elegant, yet not over the top atmosphere. The bridal suite was beautiful and accommodated our large wedding party. There was another wedding going on in the next room and we barely noticed that anyone else was there. There is a beautiful outdoor area for the ceremony, which we used and were very happy with. Our ceremony started late due to many guests arriving late because of traffic from a very bad accident on the way. John and Jennifer were very accommodating in shifting our reception a little bit later. The coordinator, Sharon, was extremely helpful in moving the entire event along. She kept me (the bride) calm through the whole thing, and I didn’t even know her! We highly recommend Crystal Peak!! Thank you!-The Ryans

I cannot say enough great things about Crystal Peak, the owners John & Jennifer, and their entire staff. My husband and I had our wedding there at the beginning of July and they attended to EVERY detail and request. John had a super fast response to my emails and questions and they were meticulous about putting out all of our "personal touches" for the reception. The food was delicious--many guests said the best wedding food they've ever had--and it was so reasonably priced compared to other vendors that it was a total no-brainer! Great food + great service + great value = awesome wedding reception! Thank you SO MUCH to Crystal Peak for an incredible party!!

I cant even begin to say how happy I am with Crystal Peak. I was married there on June 16, 2013 and they were beyond accommodating. John was always there to answer my emails in a timely manner on any questions or concerns I had. The grounds are beautiful and the food.... well the food is amazing to say the least. I received TONS of complements on the food! Their prices are reasonable and you definitely get your moneys worth. The staff is amazing, friendly and helpful, John and Jen are the sweetest people I would definitely recommend Crystal Peak to anyone for a wedding venue!

From our first meeting with John Roller the owner, to our reception, we were catered to in every way. The food is absolutely top notch....certainly not typical "wedding food", the staff was very friendly and we didn't have to worry about a single thing. If you are looking for a beautiful venue to hold your reception, with exceptional service and attention, the Crystal Peak is your venue. Thanks again to John and the staff at the Crystal Peak!!!!!

My husband and I recently got married at Crystal Peak. We were looking for a venue that had a beautiful background for our ceremony as well as a welcoming place for our reception and amazing food. We definately got all of that at Crystal Peak. We also had our rehearsal dinner there and John was great at working with my mother-in-law to create a menu that was equally as outstanding yet completely different then anything we chose for the reception. Our guests all raved about the beautiful location and the food both nights. If I could have an event here every year I would because John and Jennifer were so incredibly easy to work with. Although all of my vendors were great, John and Jennifer definately stood out with their quick responses and awesome flexibility.

It is clear that John and Jennifer really care about marriage and enjoy the opportunity to help make your special day as perfect as it can be. Their energy and enthusiasm carried through to the day of the event and really added to the importance of our wedding day. As far as their services go: PLANNING: John and Jen were incredibly easy to work with, flexible, punctual and experienced. We had a catered wedding at Mohawk Mountain Ski Area. John was able to recommend auxiliary services (florist, cake baker, rentals, etc.) all of which we were very happy with. John took care of generating our rentals list and all of the auxiliary services that he recommended were familiar with working with Crystal Peak which helped to make everything smooth and stress free. The whole process was actually fun and never stressful. FOOD: Unbelievable. John put together a comprehensive, coherent and well rounded menu including options for our handful of vegetarian/vegan guests. The hors d’oeuvre were fantastic and plentiful. Our guests were never hungry from the moment they arrived at the venue to the moment they left. BAR: John was able to give us several bar options (again, very flexible). His bartenders were very experienced and unbelievably personable. STAFF: We have gotten so much feedback from our guests regarding the Crystal Peak wait staff. They worked incredibly hard the entire night making sure that hors d’oeuvre were never out of arms reach for our guests. The wait staff went beyond serving food, however. They carried genuine smiles the whole night, and were incredibly personable and outgoing without ever being overbearing. John takes great pride in the high end disciplined service that his staff provides and it is well deserved. PRICE: Shockingly reasonable. Compared with all of the venues/services that we looked at in CT and NY Crystal Peak was actually the most competitively priced.

Absolutely thrilled with the entire Crystal Peak team! My best friend worked with them for her wedding two years ago and I couldn't be happier that I also chose them to cater my wedding.

John and Jennifer Roller were a pleasure to work with. They were VERY responsive and flexible, even when I threw a million changes in their direction, and always kept my mind at ease. They provided necessary recommendations but were also very supportive of what were priorities for us.

Most importantly, the food and service on the day of our wedding were outstanding. We still have guests commenting on how good the appetizers and lamp chops were! The wait staff was extremely attentive and professional. I would highly recommend them!

Most importantly, the food and service on the day of our wedding were outstanding. We still have guests commenting on how good the appetizers and lamp chops were! The wait staff was extremely attentive and professional. I would highly recommend them! Read less

The Staff and owners of Crystal Peak could not have been more accommodating. From our initial contact with John about the services at Crystal Peak through the whole process, he was very professional and helpful. Our daughter wanted an outdoor wedding and chose to get married on the grounds at Crystal Peak. Their wedding coordinator did a fantastic job making sure the ceremony was seamless and elegant. The staff was so friendly and attentive to our need as well as our guest needs. The food was fantastic. Our guest raved about the food and the portion size. Trust me no one went home hungry. We would like to thank the staff at Crystal peak for making our daughter’s wedding day a great success. We have attended numerous events such as weddings, Christmas parties, and Class Reunions at Crystal Peak and have always had a great experience.
I would highly recommend Crystal peak to anyone who has a need to celebrate a special occasion.

I cannot recommend Crystal Peak highly enough. From the very first time I emailed the owner/chef John Roller in February to ask if there were any dates available for this summer to the day of the wedding, I received nothing but phenomenal service. John responded quickly to any email that I sent him. He worked with what I needed and responded to all of my requests. When I emailed him and asked if I could take my mom up to see the ceremony site (she hadn't seen the venue yet) as long as I stayed out of their way, he encouraged me to take her up and see the building as well as the ceremony site and that he'd try to be around so that he could meet her, too. He and his staff were incredibly organized and made everything come together flawlessly leading up to the day.

On the day of, every table (that they'd set up using my centerpieces and their candles) looked perfect, every guest was amazed by how wonderful the food from appetizers to entrees were, every guest commented on the service of the staff. And the staff that was taking care of us and our bridal party before the ceremony, during pictures and during the reception were attentive without being intrusive and there to help guide us through the day. It was wonderful getting to fully enjoy my event without having to worry about what was happening, I had complete and total faith that it would be wonderful. And it was.

After our first meeting with John, I actually recommended the venue to a friend who ended up getting married there as well. Again, I can't say enough good things about Crystal Peak and the service there. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who asked (and did I mention how amazing the food was??).

Crystal Peak came highly recommended by our venue and walking away from our first meeting with John we were certain we made the right decision. I can't say enough how happy we are with the service they provided!! Believe it or not, we were not stressed out during the planning process as we were very comfortable that John had everything under control. Although we were hiring Crystal Peak to cater our wedding, we soon found out that we were also getting John's expert experience with event planning. EVERYTHING was PERFECT!! We received so many comments on how good the food and service was! Along with that the flow of the day (aided by John's suggestions and his staff) went smoothly and we had SO MUCH FUN!! We had an outdoor wedding and had to rent EVERYTHING from a rental company. John was indespensible as he comprised the list for us and he didn't miss a beat. I would happily and enthusiatically recommend Crystal Peak to anyone who is planning an event!! I give them an A+++++++ Did I mention the food was EXCELLENT!!!!! Lastly, John pays attention to the details. He pulled off a magnificent day for us and our guests!

I cannot say enough about Jennifer and John!!! Right from the beginning with our first meeting & tour, we were 100% impressed!! Their professionalism, menu, flexibility, price point and beautiful venue made it easy to make our decision to get married at Crystal Peak! We're so happy we did!

Our September 10th wedding was absolutely AMAZING! Jenn was right there every step of the way (even serving us hors'deuvres during our photos!)! It had been raining hard the week prior so the ground was still a bit wet and needless to say my dress got a bit dirty. BUT Jenn offered to help me clean it and took me upstairs and started cleaning the spots from my dress right before introductions!! Can't thank her enough for that!!She's amazing!!!

John is such a talented chef too! The food was SO delicious!! They also made sure that my vegetarian Uncle was served the "meatless" hors'deuvres which he greatly appreciated!

We're SO GLAD we chose Crystal Peak!!! Thank you Jenn & John!!!

From the first phone call when I spoke to the owner, John, until the moment my new husband and I left our reception we had nothing but excellent service from Crystal Peak. The owners, John and Jennifer are the most likeable, kind people you will ever meet aside from their professionalism and attention to detail. They will guide you step by step and will do everything possible to make your vision come true. The food is amazing and the price per person is unbelievable for the quality of food and service you receive. In addition, their facility is beauitful and inviting and is situated on gorgeous grounds. I cannot recommend Crystal Peak more highly.

Jen and John, co-owners and event planner and chef, respectively, are incredible. They take so much pride in every detail and worked with us to make our wedding day perfect. Seriously, it was perfect. Jen made each guest feel welcomed and special and John's food was delicious and beautifully presented. Guests raved about how good the food was and he even took the dietary restrictions of a few of our guests into consideration and made them separate plates. We could not have imagined a more beautiful wedding. Their outdoor ceremony area, nestled in the woods with a small waterfall, pond and wooden arch, is gorgeous and well tended to. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing.

My husband and I were married at Crystal Peak on June 24th, 2011. I can not possibly say enough about how wonder John and Jennifer were to work with through the entire process. Everything was flawless, and our wedding night was perfect!

We had our ceremony there as well, which was planned to be outdoors, however the rain had other plans- they allowed us to make the final call the morning of the wedding, and when we chose to move indoors into the room meant for our cocktail hour they had the room copletely changed over for our ceremony, and everything was perfect!

The food is incredible! I have had people calling to compliment us everyday since the wedding, no one could get over how delicious everything was, and the presentation was beautiful as well. Wait staff was extremely professional and friendly. Especially Sharon, who is Jennifer's assistant, and was a lifesaver when I got a stain on my dress 20 minutes into our reception.

Throughout the whole planning process, any question I emailed was answered almost inastantly. I was always kept informed of our options. And they accomodated every request.

Many of our guests stated over and over that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to. And I have to agree. Everything was perfect, and the prices are more than reasonable. I strongly reccomend Crystal Peak!

My husband and I got married May 21st, 2011. We held our reception at Crystal Peak in Winsted and couldn't have asked for a better day. Jennifer worked one on one with us to help with getting the plans for the day just right. We planned our wedding from FL and had a lot of over the phone conversations with Jennifer and she was always pleasant and very patient with us. The food was amazing, her husband is the chef and he is very professional as well. We would highly recommend using Crystal Peak for your reception venue. Even though we didn't have our ceremony there, we still had an amazing reception. We got some amazing pictures inside and outside of the building which added to the experience. I can't stress enough how great of a job Jennifer, her husband and staff did for our wedding and my husband will not not shut up about how great the seafood dish was and we want to know when they are opening up a restaurant. Now I want that dish! Thank you!

She offered ideas and accommodated all of our needs and wants. I was not nervous one bit because I knew that if anything went wrong, Jenn and John would take care of it. After our final meeting a few days before, it was just pure excitement because I knew everything was taken care of! The food was out of the world! The packages they offer are extremely reasonably priced. The grounds were beautiful and an amazing background to our outdoor ceremony. We had the wedding of our dreams at Crystal Peak!

My husband and I held our reception at Crystal Peak on June 5, 2010 and it was one of the best choices we could have made! My husband's sister used Crystal Peak the year prior for her reception as well. That is actually how we found out about this place.

The location is beautiful - tucked away in the mountain side with beautiful views and a fantastic outdoor mingling area complete with wooden bridge and fountain. (Perfect for outdoor pictures with your hubby!) The site is also very easy to get to.

The food was seriously, seriously fantastic. They offer tons of menu options based on your price point. The passed hors d'oeuvres during cocktail hour were my favorite part. The wait staff is instructed to deliver these tasty goodies to the upstairs area where the bridal party is before the formal introduction. I *definitely* got a chance to eat at my wedding!

John and Jennifer are extremely professional and easy to work with. Our wedding was almost completely DIY (everything down to the cupcakes!) and Jennifer was so flexible and organized. During the actual ceremony, she was actually out on the floor, checking everything out, checking in with my husband and me, making sure we were comfortable, fed and having a great time. Fantastic service!

Check out their website, give them a call, and go meet with them and check out the site. I promise you won't regret it!

What can I say about Crystal Peak. They were WONDERFUL! Jon and Jennifer and their team made our wedding day perfect. They were so attentive with us while we did photos, they kept things going at the perfect pace. They even provided vegan hors d’ouevers and found the vegan guests! The food is truly incredible. Jon is a wonderful chef and I had guests raving about the food the entire time. The hors d’ouevers, apps, entrees, everything was delicious. Jennifer was a strong presence, which most definitely puts a bride at ease to see someone running the show! I can only hope people who are still looking for a venue will see this and a book crystal peak! Really, they were that good ☺

The food is beyond anything you could expect. 5 star quality and you cannot beat the price, it still has our guests talking about it months after. The Rollers (owners) have one of the best kept secrets around. HIGHLY RECOMMEND, especially for outdoor wedding!

John and Jen Roller are tops in their field. Their superb attention to detail provided us with a worry-free special day. The food was awesome, the service was impeccable and the venue itself could not have looked any better. There was not one single complainnt.....even with a very, very picky set of families! Kudos to Crystal Peak and all of their staff and owners.

I had my wedding reception here on 9/29/12. John and Jennifer are super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. They gave helpful suggestions where needed but were also willing to do whatever we wanted. I can't express how great they were to work with. Not to mention how awesome the food was! I've gotten so much great feedback from my guests about the food, venue, and service.

Crystal Peak responded with the following comments:

Thank you Shelly for the great review.We are glad that all of your guest will have wonderful memories of your wedding day!!We are confused by the low value score your total cost was $63.25 per guests including tax and service ( without open bar. the cash bar totaled $286.00 for 125 guests so it was a great choice by you knowing your families to take the $5 deduction per guest for that option. Our expenses have increased every month this year and we hold and guarantee all of our pricing. Please believe us if we could do any better for any one we would .Much Happiness to you and Cameron!! John and Jennifer

Our wedding day was perfect thanks to many factors, with Crystal Peak definitely being one of them :) The grounds were beautifully maintained, the room itself was MORE than big enough, and the FOOD...to die for! Our only regret was not making more time to actually ENJOY our meals on our busy day! Their service was wonderful, very attentive to the Bride and Groom. Jen and John made the entire experience actually enjoyable and STRESS FREE! That seemed to be the theme of the day, and for that we express our immense appreciation!!

This place was a perfect wedding site. The food and service was outstanding. The value was excellent. The surroundings were beautiful. The staff was very attentive.
The setup of the room was slightly awkward- the dance floor was as far as possible away from our table and other "important" tables. We were hoping to have cocktails outside but the weather was questionable and we were disappointed not to be able to.

Crystal Peak was amazing! John and Jennifer Roller (the owners) were fabulous. They always answered my many emails promptly and were very flexible when we had an uninvited guest RSVP 2 days before the wedding. The Rollers let me come the night before my wedding to set up my Center Pieces because I was slighlty anal about them. The whole experience with Crystal Peak was terrific but my only complaint is that the bar staff was a little rude. They served my bridesmaids drink, whom all are above the age of 26, then when the drinks were in my girls' hands they took them away and made my girls go get there I.D.s. We were lucky my girls had their I.D.s with them. Overall, Crystal Peak made my Wedding Day perfect.

Our October 11th wedding at Crystal Peak was absolutely perfect. We used their lovely outdoor ceremony area for the wedding itself. It was sheltered from the parking lot and other less than attractive views by thick old CT woods, but it was very close to the venue itself and easy for all guests to access. Handicapped and elderly guest could be driven up a well hidden "driveway" to the ceremony area, so there were no awkard ramps or difficult climbs. Foliage and light landscaping in the ceremony area is understated and natural in appearance, and can be dressed up or left as it for a more low key ceremony. It's perfect for a summer or fall wedding. My only concern in the spring would be mud, but that will be an issue at any venue in New England.

The reception was held in the larger Crystal ballroom. It was tastefully, simply decorated. At no point did you feel like you were in a dressed up hotel conference room. The large windows were nice for a daytime reception. Linens were conveniently included.

And the food! Anyone who has been to Crystal Peak for any event can tell you that the food is the best of any venue in the area. And the prices are more than reasonable. We were able to keep our entire wedding budget at around $10,000, in part because of the lost cost/high quality at Crystal Peak.

Lastly, John and Jennifer were easy to work with, very responsive to emails and calls, and very patient. I had a completely stress free wedding day, knowing John had designed a great meal and dessert menu (we chose not to have a cake, and instead Crystal Peak did a great dessert table for us!), and Jennifer and her assistant Gina were making sure everything else was coordinated. We were a bit under prepared for the big event, and made some mistakes ourselves, but everything went so smoothly thanks in large part to Jennifer and Gina that no one noticed.

I very highly recommend Crystal Peak to couples on a budget, couples with under 250 guests, and couples who want to focus more on food and a relaxed, fun atmosphere.

John and his staff were overall wonderful people to work with. Be sure to communicate all details of the contract up front, including clarification of things that may seem understood, in order to avoid any misunderstandings later on. We had some stresses last minute that probably could have been avoided, but the food and quality of service the day of the wedding were unmatched. It seemed all guests were very happy with everything as well. John is very dedicated to his work and takes pride in his food and service and it shows. We would hire him again.
