My wedding at Three Chimneys Inn was nothing short of magical. From the beginning our wedding planner, Pauline was absolutely wonderful and extremely patient as we contacted her endlessly throughout the year with tons of questions and ideas. On the day of my wedding it rained and she saved the day and kept me sane while wrangling guests and getting them to the right place, as well as decorating the church with the items we originally had for the garden. She is an absolute gem and a pleasure to work with. The rest of the staff was lovely as well, we had a wonderful bartender (Corinne) both nights and a fabulous server (Heather) whom I cannot say enough nice things about.

On top of that, the inn itself is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are going through a complete renovation. My bridesmaids and I stayed in the bridal suite, newly renovated, which was gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. We got ready in that room with our hair stylist and make up artist, and it was a fabulous time. Everyone loved the place, it has so much character and it truly makes you feel like you are living in another time, with all of our present day amenities. My guests are still raving about their experience at the inn. I will absolutely be back on our yearly anniversaries. I love this place so much!

In addition, the food at this place is INCREDIBLE. It is seriously some of the best eating in New England. We had both our rehearsal dinner and our reception at the inn, and both nights people were raving about the food. We had 5 vegetarians there and they each had a wonderful meal apart from the buffet.

Everything about this place is absolutely perfect and I give it an A++ and 5 gold stars. If you book your wedding at this venue, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you so much to Pauline and all of the staff at Three Chimneys Inn for providing our wedding guests and us with cozy, fantastic hotel rooms, 2 awesome function rooms and a great historic tavern for our wedding on July 16, 2016! My Groom and I are beyond happy with choosing TCI to host our family portraits, cocktail hours, reception and hotel rooms for our 126 guests. Pauline was so attentive and compassionate through our year of wedding planning. We had countless tours of the 3 rooms and the gardens. The colors in our photographs and videos are spectacular and really portray the beauty of their property. We love TCI and will return soon!

My husband and I were wed at the Three Chimneys Inn in June 2016, and we could not have been happier with our decision to choose it as our venue! First and foremost, the staff is incredible! Pauline manages to handle about a hundred and one tasks simultaneously. If you think she’s a little unresponsive (as we’d read in reviews, but never experienced ourselves ) it’s because she’s operating at a level higher than typical human comprehension. Somehow, she and her staff manage to keep every single minute detail that you’ve discussed over months of planning on track even when it seems like an impossible, Herculean task. Unfortunately, it rained on the day of our wedding, which was scheduled to be an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. While we opted to move the cocktail hour indoors a couple of hours ahead of time (still not an easy change to pull off) it wasn’t until 5:10 pm of our scheduled 5:00 pm ceremony that it became obvious that an outdoor ceremony would not be feasible. Pauline managed to maintain her composure and quickly mobilized staff and the groomsmen to re-set the reception room as a ceremony venue in blazing fast speed. Everything turned out SPECTACULAR! Cassie and her team of service staff also were both unobtrusive and attentive and the bartender always managed to keep the line to under 3 people despite open bar. We cannot thank the staff of the Three Chimneys Inn enough for all of their hard and SKILLED work! They were flexible as any problems arose, professional at all times, and extremely friendly and inviting.

The venue itself is a gorgeous inn with lush greenery on the grounds and a nearby river landing perfect for photographs. It is the perfect place for a rustic vibe for your wedding. The rooms are also gorgeous and the complimentary breakfast is delicious. The wedding food was fantastic! We had guests comment it was the best dinner they’d ever had at a wedding. We cannot recommend them enough for couples seeking a venue for their big day!

The Three Chimneys Inn was the first and consequently ONLY venue my husband and I considered when we first started planning our October 18th wedding. The Inn itself offers classic New England charm and the wedding coordinator, Pauline, was warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable.

Leading up to our big day, Pauline was more than willing to conference via email, phone, and in person (on more than one occasion). To say that she was accommodating and attentive would be an understatement given that she went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was a complete reflection of what my husband and I envisioned, even helping us plan a Friday night welcome party and a Sunday brunch.

The entire wedding weekend was flawless and all our guests were enamored by the Inn, the food, and the staff who made it all happen! We truly had the wedding of our dreams!

My husband and I chose the Three Chimneys Inn for out wedding and it was the perfect charming, and rustic location for our event. The staff was fantastic and very accommodating. The food was even better; everyone kept telling us how amazing the food was.

The biggest issue with the venue is the wedding coordinator, Pauline. As our wedding drew closer, she was harder and harder to get in contact with. Several of my emails with important info and questions went completely unanswered (which tends to cause a lot of stress weeks before your wedding). She was also very forgetful and certain details had to be repeated three or four times before she had them correct. For our entire wedding weekend she was absent; we literally only met her once when we took a tour of the venue, over a year before the wedding.

Like I said, the rest of the staff was amazing, helpful, and very professional. You just need to be very organized and hands on in your wedding planning.

My husband & I had our wedding at the Three Chimneys Inn in October 2012. When we first toured the Inn, I immediately fell in love with its character. It has a wonderful old New England charm and lent itself well to the classic, semi-formal-yet-not-stuffy vibe we envisioned for our wedding. The grounds are stunning and the buildings are decorated to showcase the time period they emerged from.

Pauline, the event coordinator, is very sweet and knowledgeable. However, she can be hard to get in contact with and a little disorganized; I definitely recommend keeping good notes throughout the planning process and being aware of changes made without your approval. We had a couple of little snafus on our wedding day that could easily have been avoided if the staff was more organized. That being said, we are extraordinarily pleased with how our wedding turned out and would not change venues if we could do it all over again. Our guests loved the historical feel of the entire property, and the food was AMAZING. All of the staff members we encountered were very kind and willing to help with whatever we needed.

I did not give five stars for value because it was definitely more expensive to have our wedding at TCI than it would have been at other venues in the area. However, the package was fairly inclusive, the suggested vendors were wonderful and the service was excellent. My husband & I agreed from the beginning that it was worth spending more money to have a venue that was more unique and intimate than the standard country club or ballroom...the old "you get what you pay for" mantra applies here.

I would recommend TCI to any couple who are organized and prepared to spend a large chunk of their budget on the venue! We had a beautiful wedding and will absolutely return for anniversary dinners or overnight stays!

The staff at the Three Chimneys made our wedding day absolutely perfect. I had spent a lot of time creating DIY decorations, and Pauline did a beautiful job setting everything up. The entire day ran smoothly, without my husband or I ever having to worry about anything besides enjoying ourselves. My one complaint is that emails were not always answered promptly during the planning process.

I was very satisfied with the Three Chimneys Inn food and their facilities. The food was delicious and their chef was very accommodating / flexible. The inn was very well taken care of. It was a very charming place to get married. And their staff was very friendly and helpful. However, their wedding coordinator was somewhat forgetful, and didn't have the wedding running as promptly and on schedule as I'd hoped. However, she's a very busy lady! Also, the front desk was unattended when we tried to check out, thus delaying us. However, on the whole I would recommend this venue and we were happy with our choice to use them! We will definitely visit the Three Chimneys again!!

My wife and I just had our wedding reception at the three chimneys inn. As you can imagine since I am rushing out to write a review of the venue, it was a major success. The grounds were beautiful, and though we did not get married there, we had our photos taken there. The food was phenominal and everyone was continually saying it was "the best wedding food" they had ever tasted. The ambiance in the room was perfect, and the staff were more than accomodating and friendly. The whole process certainly made the wedding day just that much less stressfull for the both of us. The special diatary restrictions were met without hitches, and the cake cutting service was also perfect. In all I would reccomend this place to anyone who wants to have the perfect wedding day.
