“The Warfield House Inn was absolutely the perfect place for us to celebrate our big day! The surrounding nature, the crisp, clean & elegant bed & breakfast rooms on site, the gorgeous scenery, the list goes on. We visited this venue in almost every season of the year, and it was stunning every time we were there. Not to mention, Katy is a fantastic coordinator for your wedding day services. She was incredibly instrumental in helping us experience the most magical day of our lives. Nothing seemed rushed. Nothing was stressful. Every moment of our wedding day vision came to life with her help. We are forever thankful for her kindness and care when it comes to event planning and using all of the beautiful spaces that the Warfield House has to offer. We were thrilled when family also wanted to have the rehearsal dinner at the same venue as it afforded us to spend more time in one of our new favorite places with incredible views and a relaxing and natural atmosphere. We plan to visit the Warfield House for future anniversaries or celebrations. It was the perfect place for us to celebrate with all of our family and friends. Not only was the entire weekend unforgettable and perfect for us, our guests are still talking about how stunning the view was over a month after the event! The Warfield House is the perfect place to get married if you are looking for excellence, a quality experience, and photo opportunities and memories wherever you look.”

“My bride and I just had a wonderful winter wedding at the Kemble Inn! We worked with the Innkeeper, Jessica Wells, on an all-inclusive wedding package for our intimate, 10-guest wedding. The accomodations for the Bridal Suite were very romantic, with a heated floor bathroom and a tub for two, with fireplaces in both the bedroom and the bathroom. The food, both for the after-wedding cocktail hour, and at the hotel restaurant during breakfast and dinner, were wonderful. The mountain scenery was serene and the it’s location right in the center of Lenox was wonderful, as we could walk into town and visit cozy cafe’s and galleries.”

“The most idyllic Berkshire wedding venue you will find. Beautiful location & well thought-out venue with a staff who truly care about making your day the best it can be. They are talented, attentive, friendly, and worth every penny. I handed them boxes of decorations with very little direction and they turned it into something better than I had imagined. The aesthetic of the space is perfectly simple; every wedding they hold is completely unique but equally beautiful. You can transform the space into whatever vibe you’re going for and I think that’s so cool and not something that you can do with every venue. Also, who wouldn’t want to wake up the morning after their wedding with those STUNNING views from the silo suite? We are SO thankful we chose Bloom Meadows to hold one of the most important days of our lives.”
