Working with Nancy Montalto has been a great experience. She is the wedding consultant for the Warren Center and a great asset. No matter how many questions I have (or re ask) she always replies to emails within hours (unless it's after hours of course!) The food tasting was simply amazing and well worth the visit as it provides the complete ambiance of an actual wedding reception. The venue is a bit pricey but if there is a part of your budget you are going to splurge, then this is it! Also their suggested vendor list is very helpful. Each vendor they suggested had a different price point so it is worth a look.

The Warren Conference Center and Inn was just the place we were looking for when we went venue looking - it has wonderful character in the Hayden Lodge and is a unique setting for a wedding. From start to finish, all of my interactions with the staff at the Warren Center were great - they were quick to respond and always willing to work with me to get what we wanted. The food was fantastic and the service was wonderful. The Inn makes it convenient for guests to stay over (and no transportation was necessary!) I would recommend the Warren Conference Center and Inn to anyone looking to have a wedding in the metrowest area.

We had the best experience planning our wedding with the WCC! Our coordinator Lynn was always available to answer questions and help. The food was delicious, the inn was adorable and the service was outstanding.

We got married on a very rainy day in July and the amount of effort and attentiveness that went in to making sure our day was still perfect was more than expected.

I cannot express how happy I was with the WCC for our wedding!

We just got married at The Warren Conference Center and Inn, and we had an AMAZING wedding!!!! We had our rehearsal dinner, and our wedding ceremony and reception at The Warren Center, and we will never forget this incredible place!! Lynn in Catering Sales was WONDERFUL!!!! From our very first meeting a year before our wedding, she was very gracious and friendly, and she was INCREDIBLY HELPFUL from the start of our planning process through the final hours of our wedding reception. Lynn was extremely responsive, available, and helpful; she made our wedding day a truly perfect day. She took such good care of us and made us feel so relaxed and excited for the big day! The Warren Center grounds are exquisitely beautiful with lush greens and flowers, and the gazebo and reception hall provide beautiful photography sites. Mary Ellen, Tricia, and Judy at the Inn at the Warren Center provided wonderful care and service for our wedding guests. They were extremely accommodating and responsive, and they really went above and beyond to make our wedding weekend a success. The Inn rooms and the rooms in the Northern Lodge were beautiful and very comfortable. Our ceremony was in the Inn, and the high arched wooden beams in the Inn created a beautiful framework for our ceremony. Our reception was held in the dining room of the Hayden Lodge, and the tables and linens were just beautiful. THE FOOD IS ALSO AMAZING!! All of our guests commented on how wonderful the food was - from the appetizers to salad to dinner and dessert. The bartenders, servers, and maintenance staff were all incredibly nice and provided amazing service. Thank you to Lynn, Patricia, Mary Ellen, Tricia, Judy, and all of the amazing staff at The Warren Conference Center and Inn! You made our wedding day just perfect, and we will never ever forget you!!!! Best wishes always!

The Warren Center was exactly what we were looking for and definitely exceeded our expectations. We were looking for a venue with personality that had accommodations onsite that wasn't a ballroom hotel. The Hayden Lodge was gorgeous with iron candelabras and a four sided fireplace which was perfect for our winter wedding. The inn was great for guests. We took over the common area for after the wedding and in the morning. We had the entire place to ourselves for the weekend.
The food was also amazing! It was not the typical bland wedding food. The filet was amazing and we have received so many compliments. The staff was also great and very accommodating. Nancy was amazing in answering all of my questions and easy to work with. Our wedding went very smoothly despite being in the middle of a blizzard!

Warren Conference Center was an amazing find. It was perfect for my camping themed wedding. Kim and Erika were amazing coordinators, and helped our big day go off without any major hiccups. Whenever we needed anything, they were there for us. They were very accommodating to our needs. The food was great, the atmosphere was great and the staff was great. And all for a very reasonable price!

The Warren Center was great. First of all, Lynn Sinclair was our contact there and she has amazing organizational skills. I can't count how many emails with lists of nitpicky questions I sent her, and she alway got back to me within a day.

The location was beautiful and it was so convenient to have the ceremony, reception, and hotel rooms all in the same area. It made the wedding a whole-day event where people got used to the surroundings and could go for a nice hike or hang out in the hotel lobby before or after the event.

Only complaints about the location/buildings are that it's hard to get to for people without a car, and the room where the cocktail hour would have been if the weather had been bad, which is the same room where the afterparty was, was kind of drab and corporate-looking -- lots of round tables with big office chairs. However, once the room was full of people, I think the guests appreciated that the chairs were big and comfortable and the room appearance really didn't matter at all.

The food was awesome -- GREAT filet mignon for dinner, and we didn't buy a breakfast/brunch for our guests, but there's automatically a free pretty good continental breakfast so it wasn't necessary anyway. We got to mingle with our guests the next morning and make sure they were fed for free. In general, there are always snacks in the hotel lobby, which is nice. We loved that there was an option to have an afterparty. Our guests stayed until 1 am eating mozzarella sticks and mini hot dogs in flaky pastry and enjoyed that a lot more than I expected.

All in all, a really good venue and I still can't believe how smoothly my wedding day went -- all thanks to Lynn and the other Warren Center staff!

We searched for a central Massachusetts venue that fit "us". We didn't want a stuffy hotel ballroom with no personality or a fancy country club dining hall that we'd feel intimidated by. We didn't think much of the Warren Center when we first visited it but then as we saw 10+ other venues that didn't work, we came back to it and realized it was perfect all along. It is priceless to know that your friends and family can stay on-site and not worry about yet-another-vendor with transportation. We picked it for its charm and uniqueness and we were not let down. Food was never at the top of our priority list and we never expected to be blown away, so we were completely surprised when people raved about the wedding dinner to us. The vegetarian raviolis got rave reviews and our guests kept talking about the filet. To us, that was an unexpected bonus. Since I'm not a foodie, what mattered to me, was that we felt like the Hayden Lodge was absolutely perfect for us. The lofted ceiling, the covered deck, the stone patio, the fireplace, everything was so fitting. As the day got closer and our vision became clear, it was even more fitting for us because we had A LOT of handcrafted details for decor and they would've been completely lost in a hotel/country club ballroom, but they SHINED at the Warren Center and allowed people to notice them. One thing we were looking forward to was a fire pit on the patio but unfortunately it rained at night. We got nothing but fantastic service from Christine Lopez and it was such a pleasure to work with her and ask her any questions we had. It's such a great place, nestled along the state park, it could be picked up and dropped in the White Mountains but it is easy to get to from Rt9. I can't imagine our wedding having happened anywhere else.
