We got married at Seven Hills in September 2011. When we were looking for a wedding venue, we wanted a place where we could bring together all our family and friends for a weekend to relax, play, celebrate, have a great time AND have a beautiful wedding. Seven Hills Inn is that place and uniquely so – we did not find anything else like it and haven’t since. We were able to take over the entire Inn for the long weekend (in our case, it was Labor Day weekend, so we had three days) and the beauty of the estate, in the midst of the gorgeous Berkshires, allowed us and our guests to feel transported and away from the rest of the world, but also to feel comfortable and relaxed like it was our home, without any stuffiness. For example, we had 20 kids running around all weekend!
The weekend was full of games, music, food, and hanging out at the pool, on the lawn, and throughout the Inn’s many rooms and spaces. A favorite moment was sharing breakfast with everyone we love each morning, getting to see family members reunite and people we know from all the parts of our lives get to spend time together. The estate offers a perfect space for everything you would want in a wedding venue: The back lawn is a spectacular spot for a wedding ceremony – we were surrounded by hydrangeas and had the stunning woods behind us, which was also where we took portraits after the ceremony. We also took advantage of the back lawn and patio for our “rehearsal” dinner, where we opted for a lobster “bake” picnic table extravaganza, complete with an ice cream Sundae bar and lots of kids running around with glow sticks! The banquet room was perfect for the wedding dinner (as well as breakfast for all the guests) and the music room – with its art deco style floor and bar – made a fun and classy space for dancing the night away. In between, the main living room was a perfect lounge area and the “heart” of the Inn all weekend where family caught up with one another, people could sit and read, and guests could peruse old family photos. Our friends camped out in the library for a marathon poker game and that is also where we set up a photo booth during our reception. In other words, you can do lots of amazing things at this place!
What makes Seven Hills this special is not just its physical beauty (the Inn is kept up to the highest standards), it is the owners, Robin and Dennis Wong, and the wonderful staff they have put together. From the first moment we met with Robin, we felt well taken care of and this lasts throughout your entire experience, from pre-wedding planning through to very last moment. Robin’s background in theater, combined with her enthusiasm for weddings and events, means that you essentially get a wedding planner extraordinaire! She has tons of great ideas, and experience, but is also totally open to customizing and changing things up, to make it the wedding you want it to be. Between Robin, her husband Dennis, who rounds out the dynamic duo, and their amazing staff, we were in very capable hands and they took care of EVERYTHING during the wedding weekend itself. Every single one of our guests was blown away by the venue and the presence and awesomeness of Robin and Dennis!
We could not recommend Seven Hills Inn highly enough! And it is definitely going to be a vacation destination.
