Amazing venue! I'm so glad that I chose the Riverhouse. We had a December wedding and their winter decorations were beautiful - I didn't feel a need to do anything beyond what they already provided, I even used their house centerpieces for the tables. I booked a year in advance and they stayed in touch and followed up with me the whole year to ensure all of the planning got done. Superior staff both in the office and on the day of the wedding. Everything went smoothly and not one single issue popped up at any point on my wedding day. I'm still hearing rave reviews from my guests about the food provided by the Riverhouse as well. We had a Sunday brunch wedding which included both breakfast and lunch options and everything was delicious! We used their main ballroom for our ceremony which faces the Connecticut River, held the cocktail hour in the main lobby, and then returned to the ballroom for the reception - they made wedding day logistics so simple! We also decided to pay a little extra for an open bar and a pre-ceremony beverage station. The pre-ceremony beverages were a huge hit (everyone loved the coffee, teas, and hot cocoa provided) and while the Riverhouse has a no-shots policy (I appreciated that, made the event feel even classier) the open bar was really great. Additionally, the cost of the wedding cake is baked into the venue fee, so when you go to either of their approved bakeries (I picked Kim's Cottage Confections) it's really nice not having to write another check! I don't have a single complaint or negative thing to say about the Riverhouse and I'm still counting my lucky stars that we went with them.

Through out the entire process of planning our wedding the entire staff at The Riverhouse were beyond helpful. Both Kelly and Hattie were always so attentive when responding to emails or phone calls with questions or concerns we had. They were more than accomodating and made our experience very enjoyable. During our reception we had the pleasure of working with Santiago who was absolutely outstanding. He was on top of everything and really made my husband and I feel very special on our day. And lastly, Samantha who was our bridal party server was incredible. We had a group of young and crazy groomsmen and brides maids and she kept up with all of us. I never had to ask for anything, it felt like she was right behind me the entire evening with whatever I needed. Santi and Samantha really went out of their way that evening and I feel very grateful and blessed to have had such a memorable evening because of the staff at The Riverhouse.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! My husband and I tossed back and forth about venues closer to us, then decided to check out The Riverhouse because a couple of our friends recommended it after great experiences as guests there. WOW! The facility is gorgeous. Hattie was the greatest planner we met with when were searching venues. She was sincere, calm, and reassuring. We walked out of our tour and knew that was it. Everything from then on went very smoothly; Hattie and Kelley would send emails checking in and offering their help if ever needed. They promptly responded to emails- like within hours, if not the next morning would get a response. Mary, the banquet manager, was fabulous. She ran our rehearsal and everything the day of went- it all went perfectly. I didn't worry about a thing. We had plans for an outdoor ceremony, but mother nature left us with a cold, rainy day so we had it in the ballroom. It was quaint and very romantic. I had a ton of lanterns to be used and left the decorations up to Mary and her team's creativity- they did an amazing job! Our guests raved about how gorgeous the venue was and LOVED the food. We really couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you to The Riverhouse and their amazing staff for a perfect wedding day!

The Riverhouse is absolutely fantastic. We had such an enjoyable time working with them on our wedding. They were always very responsive to my emails and even made a last minute ceremony time change. Our wedding day was seamless and that is in most part because of the expertise The Riverhouse has with weddings. The food is phenomenal and enjoyed by all (even those with dietary restrictions). I would definitely recommend this venue!

Everyone at The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station was phenomenal! From the tour to the wedding day- Mary, Hattie and Kelley were there to answer questions, offer services and recommend vendors. The day of their staff was attentive and quick and made sure everything from the ceremony to dinner to dessert were on schedule. They even made sure to allow my husband and I to sit down and enjoy our dinners! Many of my guests commented on the delicious food, the quick bar tending and just how lovely everything had been set up. I cannot express enough how awesome and perfect the day was- one I will surely always remember with fond and happy memories!

Absolutely amazing! I could not have asked for a better staff and venue for my wedding. They handled every detail, I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of our wedding. The food was the "best wedding food" anyone has ever had including myself and my husband! The venue is simply elegant, you don't need to add much to make it perfect for your day. I honestly think I would have gone absolutely crazy the day of it the staff was not there to set up everything. It really made such a huge difference in the amount of stress that could have occurred that day! Hattie and Kelley are absolutely amazing. They answered every question no matter how silly within a timely manner and are just fantastic and their jobs! Thank you all!!

Incredible. I can't stop talking about the Riverhouse and how perfect of a venue they were for my wedding. The girls (Hattie, Kelley and Mary) were wonderful from beginning to end and I couldn't be happier with our experience (from planning to the day of). They were flexible, knowledgeable, fun, accommodating, and more. The food was amazing, my guests are STILL talking about it, and the venue is absolutely stunning. You will drop a pretty penny on this venue but it is SO worth it, I never had to worry about anything. Whenever I had a question or concern while planning the wedding Hattie respond immediately and did her best to accommodate and approve all the crazy ideas my fiance had to make our wedding special. The day of the wedding was so fun, the staff was stellar and top of the line, and Mary was always smiling and took care of everything - I didn't have a care in the world! My vendors (DJ and photog) were well prepared for the day and the Riverhouse made sure they were comfortable, fed, and set up for success. Well done Riverhouse, thank you for making our wedding day even better than we could have possibly imagined!
