They were fantastic throughout the whole wedding and planning and have have great spaces for outdoor or indoor weddings. We were planning outdoor, and then it rained the entire week leading to the wedding, and was pretty cold out, so we decided on indoor 2 days before. Inside, looks like a barn, very rustic, and you get married in front of a huge stone fireplace that can be decorated with flowers, or candles. Outside is in front of a pond, with a white gazebo. Either way, great options. For the reception you can mix indoor, outdoor, and a pavilion buffet. For pictures, they are also down the road from the Barkhamsted reservoir, which is really really pretty

One other really cool thing about them as a place, is that it would be really easy to do a super offbeat wedding there. They have a pool, zip lines, bocci courts, volleyball courts, a climbing wall, ect, which all can be used (for a fee) during the day if you wanted to do more of a picnic and games type thing. We didn't end up using the facilities at all, but at the beginning we had thought about it.

Leading up to the wedding, they were very responsive and helpful, just all around great. Day of, same thing. Everything went smoothly, the food was delicious, the place looked great.

Potential downsides: They are out of the way a bit, and there are not good hotel options. The closest hotels are either at Bradly, Avon, or Torrington, all about 15-20 minutes drive, and at night, the area is dark with small roads. So, if you are having a mostly out of town wedding this is a bit of a problem. They also don't do food tastings, so you just have to trust them...which we did, and the food was outstanding. One of their reasons for not doing food tastings is that they buy everything locally the week before the wedding something I really liked.

Over all they were amazing, the food was great, and we loved everything!

My husband and I wanted a venue that was completely different from our first marriages. We also wanted a wedding that reflected our personalities. It was out goal to make our wedding about not just the celebration of our wedding but the celebration of thanks to all of our family and friends who stood by us through the years. Amny of our friends and families have children and since hy husband and I have 5 kids between us, it was important that children be a part of our wedding. It was a HOT August day and we used the outing menu that provided 2 meals, watermelon break, ice cream and lots of very good food. The entire facility was open to our guests once lunch was over and they used it. I have amazing pictures of our children swimming, zip lining. playing on the boats. Our wedding album is awesome! There were so many places that made amazing backrounds. The staff went over the top being friendly and accommodating. Nick and Liz were so helpful. I cant say anything that I would of changed or have made better. All we heard all day and still do is that we had the best wedding ever!!!

Rustic location that will definitely impress your family and friends! Family-owned and absolutely accommodating. Nick, Liz and Kevin made everything easy. The grounds are actually a day camp in the summer-time and you can use the facility for your guests if you'd like. The reception area is so spacious and can fit almost 300 people. The dance floor is huge and the room with the fireplace made a great location to get married since it was cooler than expected at the gazebo. Can't put in to words how beautiful, unique, and perfect everything was. You'd be lucky to get married here - we were :)

The staff members at The Village were fantastic to work with. They were always willing to help, more than happy give us feedback when asked and did everything they could to make our day the best it could be! We had a Renaissance Themed wedding and the Village was the perfect setting for such an event! Some of the staff members even ran home and grabbed some renaissance garb to fit in! The food was delicious. They dont offer tastings, but you dont need it. Our family and friends keep telling us how great everything was and how kind and pleasant the waitstaff was. They even allowed us to use a close friend as bartender! You have nothing to worry about when you work with these folks!

The staff at The Village at Boulder Ridge were very pleasant and friendly to our wedding guests as well as ourselves.

We had an outdoor ceremony and due to the distance people had to walk from outside back into the building, it was challenging for some of the elderly guests. The staff gave rides to these guests on golf carts which was extremely helpful.

The food options were wonderful and we loved the buffet set up. It was easy to navigate and the rooms are very spacious.

Just be sure to be specific with asking what they actually provide for decor, right down to the style of the chairs. I was expecting a certain type of outdoor chair from looking at all of their photos and advertisements, but they ended up setting up a completely different style and the chairs looked plastic, not wooden, for our ceremony. That was disappointing.

If you're looking for a very natural backdrop, The Village is a great location. The grass needs some work, but we were very pleased with the greenery. The view by the pond is beautiful.

All the staff at Boulder Ridge is absolutely wonderful. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The site is gorgeous with an outdoor gazebo, pond, swimming pool and pavillion. I highly recommend the Village at Boulder Ridge for any event - wedding, outing, party, family reunion, etc.

I would highly recommend having a wedding at the Village. Kevin (the owner) was so wonderful to work with, always responsive, and willing to work with you to make the day special. The day of the wedding was better than anything I could image. The entire staff was wonderful and it felt as though they were part of the family and celebration by the end of the night. They were all so accommodating to all the other vendors and most importantly to all my guests!

One of the reasons that we chose The Village was that they host only one reception at a time. Also, the bride has a private room, and the facility is large and welcoming in appearance.

Overall, we were very pleased. If there is one criticism, it is that the air conditioning was completely insufficient! They were, however, very accommodating and moved the ceremony to the dance floor because the room for the ceremony was much too hot. They put 2 powerful fans out on the dance floor, which was appreciated, but also very necessary.

Everyone liked the food. The service staff was exceptionally professional and very nice. The guests said that they liked the food and had a nice time...in spite of the temperature.
