This place is just amazing. Such a beautiful landscape for an outdoor ceremony (with multiple locations to choose from!) and a beautiful reception room with huge windows, that leads out on to the patio. Kevin was great and always available to answer questions. The bridal suite was a great place to get ready in, so beautiful and it has it's own private courtyard where you can do some pictures before hand with your bridesmaids. All of my guests raved about the location and couldn't believe a place this beautiful was so close without them knowing about it. I highly recommend this place.

My husband and I got married at Ridley Creek State Park at the beginning of June. We originally toured the venue in February 2012, and even in the winter we could tell how beautiful the venue was! Ever since booking the venue, we have been very impressed with the quality of service. You will work with Kevin, the park ranger, and you can tell he is very passionate about the mansion and the grounds. Every time we went by for a walk through or even just to hang out in the park, we noticed new upgrades to the area! Right before our ceremony they replanted the grass in the ceremony area. They also added new lighting in the ballroom and built a wall along the cocktail hour terrace. We loved all of the upgrades and thought the area looked amazing for our wedding day. Kevin was always very responsive and always answered our questions. The venue is very hands off and lets you bring in all of your own vendors, so you are able to personalize your wedding to be exactly how you want it to be. Renting the mansion is expensive considering that it only pays for use of the mansion for 12 hours, but it was definitely worth it! My guests were blown away by how beautiful the mansion and grounds were, and my bridesmaids and hair/makeup vendors were dying over the massive bridal suite that we were able to use to get ready! Every picture of our wedding day was perfect because of how beautiful the venue was. My photographer said it's one of her favorite places to shoot weddings! I highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a beautiful, romantic place in the woods to get married!

Beautiful Venue! Kevin Murphy the event coordinater was a great help and even ended up taking down all the chairs from my reception site by himself!

It really becomes a DIY wedding there since they only provide indoor tables and chairs but it was a wonderful place and we had a beautiful wedding!

thanks Kevin!

My husband and I wanted a destination wedding but quickly realized it was going to be a challenge to have all of our family and friends there with us. When we discovered Ridley Creek Mansion we knew this would be our local destination. Ridley Creek is beautiful, very scenic and picturesque. The Mansion has a lot of history and having our own bridal sweet for day was an extra perk. It was very spacious and beautiful, a great place to get ready and capture some extraordinary pictures. The grounds are very well kept and clean, all of our guests enjoyed the views and took several pictures of their own. Our entire event was magical and everything we imagined it would be. We highly recommend Ridley Creek for a special occasion; it is a destination all in its own!

We have visited RCSP frequently over the years, and it's always been a special place for us, so we chose it as the location for our wedding and reception this past September. The Hunting Hill Mansion isn't large – it's best for 150 or fewer guests – but it's magnificently rustic, and needs no decorations or enhancements. The grounds surrounding the mansion are modest, but are spacious and have lovely aspects, including a gorgeous pond and stone archways. There's plenty of space for guests to congregate and children to play. And brides…there is a magnificent bridal salon for you and your attendants to get ready, or to retreat when you need a break from it all! For an indoor/outdoor wedding and/or reception, RCSP is comparatively inexpensive and provides a beautiful setting. The only thing to note is that you must be out of the space by 10PM. For us, that wasn’t a problem. For our out-of-town guests (as well as those who wanted to continue the party into the night), we chose the Concordville Inn and provided a shuttle (see our separate review).

We looked at several places before almost settling. When the first place I chose wasn't my husband's favorite, I agreed to look at 1 more. We both knew it was the one the second we walked in. The most common comment we got about the wedding was "WHERE did you find this place?" The venue is absolutely stunning! We wanted a place that would let us bring in our own everything. Our own decor, caterer, centerpieces, etc. This was the place. It was a blank slate, but a beautiful canvas. So much potential for those with or even without imagination. From the fireplace, to the fountain yard, to the outdoor patio, everything is just stunning. My favorite comment was "the most romantic wedding ever" - simply from the venue. The fact that it is in a public park also made things pretty easy. I stopped by a few times during the planning just to glance around and dream about the day. It is so secluded, very far from the street, and is a BEAUTIFUL backdrop for photos. We plan to have picnics in the park often to reminisce about our perfect wedding.

My husband and I got married at the Mansion at Ridley Creek and it was an almost magical experience. In my opinion, this is the most beautiful venue in the Southeastern Pennsylvania area, and to top it off, it’s very reasonably priced. We also appreciated that we were able to rent the venue for the whole day and extend for an extra couple of hours after the normal finishing time (for an extra fee). The bridal chamber is HUGE and STUNNING and we made use of it by getting ready there.

We held our ceremony outdoors although the indoor option in case of rain would have been lovely as well. The grounds and the building are really well maintained, and the park management has been investing in improvements each year.

This venue allows you to bring in outside vendors. For us, this was great because it gave us the flexibility to choose who we wanted. Our caterer (Diverse Catering and Event Design – highly recommended) provided the event management on the day so we didn’t need additional support from the venue or a separate wedding planner. Our contact at Ridley Creek was very responsive to our questions and was very flexible about our requests.

We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding.

My husband and I just got married here and couldn't be happier. We had our ceremony on the tennis court under the trees and it was just beautiful. The reception room has a rustic and lived in feel. It didn't feel too stuffy like a very formal wedding can. The place has an outdoor rustic charm that we just couldn't find anywhere else. They just recently replace all the lighting and chairs, as well as upgraded the kitchen to professional grade. Our photographer didn't want to stop taking photos because they thought it was so beautiful. We had our cocktail hour outside and some of our guest’s event took walks to explore the grounds. The venue is a little gem that we were lucky to find and will away hold a special place in our hearts.

We held our wedding and reception at Ridley Creek hunting hill mansion. It is an absolutely beautiful wedding venue for those looking for a romantic, unique, one of a kind wedding surrounded by nature! The stone mansion and gardens offer beautiful photo opts. You do need to be prepared to do everything yourself if you decide to hold your wedding here as it is up to you to coordinate with and hire all outside vendors. Some recommendations for those holding events here: (1) size - the ballroom is gorgeous but I recommend no more than 110 people if you want a good sized dance floor; (2) timing - they are required to stop serving alcohol at 9pm and you must be completely cleared out by 10pm including all decorations etc.; (3) decorations - the venue is so beautiful that you really don't need many, but I do recommend candle centerpieces as it is pretty dark in the ballroom; and (4) transporation - it is not easy to get to and roads are dark and windy, so if in budget highly recommend shuttling guests to the site.

Were very helpful in scheduling the reservation. Other than that, they were fairly hands off. They set up tables in the ballroom for you, but not the chairs. I had given them a floor plan in February for a September wedding, and sent them a revision in late July when our guest list got more concrete. They seemed to ignore the revision I sent, and my fiance and groomsmen handled the adjustments the day of on their own.
Beautiful grounds. I got a LOT of compliments about how amazing the grounds and mansion were. The ballroom felt roomier than my floor plan looked. There's a nice hallway just off the ballroom that's great for buffets. Amazing bridal suite with plenty of mirrors. My photographer said it was the nicest bridal suite she had seen. Decent kitchen according to my caterer. Many places around the building for great photos.

The Hunting Hill mansion is absolutely gorgeous. However, there were a few issues that I came across during my planning. The mansion claims to seat 150-170 people in the ballroom. I invited 150 guests and 148 of them came! When I went to the mansion two weeks prior to the wedding to have one last look at the ballroom, I was told by a park ranger that with 150 people, there would be no dance floor and space would be an issue. I think this is something they should have mentioned in the paperwork. I ended up having a wonderful caterer who really made great use of the space and we didnt end up having any issues, and the dancefloor was full all night!

This is a beautiful place to have a reception. We loved it. We didn't do a sit down dinner reception. Instead we did a cocktail style with 230 people there. Everything went smoothly and we were able to get everything worked out. It really is a beautiful place for the price.

Here are the problems with the place. The staff and people that work there are not helpful at all. They are very hands off and want to do as little work as possible. They will never call you for anything, except for your deposits. The nice thing is that they are hands off, the problem is if you want them to move something they don't normally move, they won't do it and give you an attitude for asking. They were responsive enough but difficult to work with. We made several request, mainly small and they are not willing to tailor to your needs at all.

Overall it's a great beautiful venue, but since it is owned by the state and have state employees, they don't have to do much work or be very competitive, which allows them to do as little work as possible. Just a warning.

Ridley Creek is such a beautiful venue -- our guests couldn't say enough about how gorgeous it is! The park administration was a pleasure to work with, and pretty much let us do whatever we wanted on our wedding day (within reason, of course). One thing we really liked about RCSP is that you can choose all your own vendors -- they provide a list of vendors who have previously worked there, but you're not limited to it. It was really nice to have a wide range of caterers to choose from. However, this brings up a point that may appeal to some couples but not to others -- RCSP doesn't coordinate anything, and it's all on you and your vendors. I really liked that they were so hands-off, but I know that some people like all-inclusive venues where everything is provided and taken care of. For us, it was completely worth it to have a stunning venue, to choose everything ourselves, and to be able to go back again and again, whenever we want. We were extremely happy with RCSP, and hope to have another party/event there sometime!

This was an absolutely gorgeous venue to have our wedding! We had the ceremony outside (we lucked out big time with the weather). Our wedding day turned out absolutely perfect. Besides providing a beautiful setting, don't expect much from the staff. Because it is a state park, events fall low on their list of priorities. The positive thing is that they allow you to bring in your own vendors which worked out well for us. We used Catering by Rich and he was absolutely fantastic. He had catered in this venue before, and did a fantastic job. He basically ran the entire event and made everything run very smooth. Also the bridal suite is incredible- if it had rained, we considered having our ceremony there!

Ridley Mansion is an amazing combination of old school elegance and wonderful catering. It was easier to plan our ceremony and wedding than we expected. We were glad that we choose this location and Christinas Catering to handle all our needs. Kevin at Ridley was very efficient and friendly. Everything was PERFECT. Thank You! CJ

The Hunting Hill Mansion in Ridley Creek State Park was built by the Jeffords family in 1914. The mansion was built around a 1789 Pennsylvania stone farmhouse that forms the core of the building and serves as the reception center. Hunting Hill has a magnificent ballroom that brings about an old world charm like no other and is the perfect spot for a magical wedding reception. You can also have your wedding on the grounds of Ridley Creek State Park, then have your reception in the ballroom afterwards! The ballroom did not have many chairs or tables so we did wind up renting them from our caterer. Please remember that the mansion is old so the electricity is old too. You cannot bring in too many electrical things. We did have a DJ so he was fine but not too many more than that. There is plenty of room for about 180 people with a small dance floor. The mansion also has a kitchen which caterers are free to use but you must remember to book this ahead of time. The park office was very friendly and able to meet all of our requests. From simple to elegant this ballroom is the perfect place for a wedding reception! There is also a piano in the ballroom but guests are asked not to play it. I'm sure a musician could if discussed with the park office ahead of time. Best of all was the value of renting this ballroom. It only cost us $200! Granted it didn't include anything else other than a location but if you go to Ridley Creek and view the Hunting Hill Mansion and its ballroom, you will see that it is worth it!
