Turner Hill is a beautiful and unique reception site. We fell in love with it the second we walked in and were not disappointed. Carol and the staff were helpful and made sure everything went smoothly. Living in Vermont we were not able to meet as easily, but Carol was flexible and accommodating. During the reception, all the staff members were amazing! I never felt stressed because they were so on top of everything.

Turner Hill with Mrs. Travers at the helm is exceptional. From soup to nuts, Mrs. Travers was attentive, adaptive, and responsive. On the day of our rehearsal dinner, everything went off flawlessly. The food was delectable and the staff was very professional. Our 30+ guests are still raving about how this was a meal to remember!

We cannot thank Carol enough for all her help in creating our dream wedding day at Turner Hill. From the first time I met her I knew we were in good hands. She goes far above and beyond the role of on-site coordinator.

We got married at a grand estate on a fairly tight budget and Carol worked with us every step of the way. She guided us on how to maximize our menu and minimize cost, and answered all of our questions promptly. We took her recommendation on our hotel, officiant, and baker and I could not be more pleased will the outcome of our wedding. We have received so many compliments about the beauty of Turner Hill and outstanding meal provided by Vinwood.

I fell in love with the Mansion on Turner Hill the second I saw it a couple of years before I was even engaged. When I got engaged I knew i wanted my wedding their. Turner Hill is picture perfect. We loved every second of our wedding and it is because of Turner Hill. Carol the wedding coordinator from Turner Hill was so very helpful. She did not miss one thing on our wedding day. She made the day perfect. The mansion speaks for itself because it is so beautiful. Driving up to the mansion it almost takes your breathe away. We did not use the tent we did everything inside. We got married inside the grand ballroom and had cocktail hr in the hallway and library. Our dinner was split between 2 rooms but it worked out perfect. Everyone in the other room didn't miss anything happening in the big room thanks to the staff. Vinwood was also amazing and the food was great. People are still talking about the wedding and the food.

Where do I begin? Turner Hill exceeded every expectation I had not only on my wedding day but in planning the day itself. Carol, the event coordinator, was incredible to work with. She was quick to respond, professional, and truly a resource for vendor suggestions and recommendations.
The venue itself is breathtaking - the outdoor space is something straight out of a fairy tale. Thankfully, the weather cooperated, and we were able to have our ceremony outside. The ceremony space indoors is gorgeous though, and would have made a perfect alternative.
Our wedding was at the end of September, so we were still able to use the tent for dinner. Do NOT write off the venue because of the word 'tent'! Go see it for yourself and be sure to look at the photo books Carol has so you can get a better understanding of the space. The 'tent' has a beautiful wood floor and is surprisingly elegant.
Then the dinner itself is AMAZING! Vinwood is the caterer for the venue and they do not disappoint. Everyone has said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! Having no choice in caterer is actually a blessing in disguise when the option available to you is as amazing as they are.
Vinwood staff was incredible, as well. Kristen really went above and beyond to help coordinate timing of the event and was a godsend at the end of the night - she had everything packed for us so it just has to be moved out! An amazingly huge detail that is never discussed and often forgotten - your things have to leave the venue somehow and having it all in one place and packed up was so so helpful.
All in all, our wedding day was perfectly executed and the staff and ambience at Turner Hill is the major component in its success. Thank you!!

The Mansion on Turner Hill was the PERFECT place to have our wedding. It was so elegant and people kept asking us how we found it!
We got married in August – so our dinner portion of the evening was in the tent that is connected to the mansion and dancing was in the ballroom. Our guests loved how there were two areas of our wedding and we were not in one place all night—not to mention, your guests have access to the whole first floor of the mansion!
Carol, the wedding coordinator at the mansion was truly amazing to work with. She was so professional and came up with some great suggestions for us as we continued down the wedding planning process path. She was open to our “new” ideas and easily accommodated for what we wanted. I can’t thank Carol enough for all of her work on our wedding.
Vinwood catering was also OUTSTANDING. Vinwood is the caterer for the mansion and they were on top of everything the night of our wedding and kept my husband and I in the loop on what time it was what still had to be done, etc. It was so helpful to have Kristin there helping us along the way that night, she did an amazing job.
I would HIGHLY recommend the Mansion on Turner Hill for a classic, elegant wedding that offers so many different landscapes for photos and an enjoyable atmosphere for guests—it was truly magical and I can’t wait to go back and visit for our anniversaries. Thank you Carol!!!

We were so pleased that the Mansion on Turner Hill extended their winter rates all the way through the end of May this year, so that we could indulge in this exquisite venue. Not only are the grounds and architecture like something out of a fairy tale, but the venue provides you with a list of vendors that are most skilled at their crafts. This allowed the process to go very smoothly for us (especially considering that we had only 6 months to plan the wedding!) Carol, the coordinator, was there to answer any and all questions that we had. She was impeccably competent and a joy to work with. I can honestly say that the day of our wedding was seamless.
