I can't possibly say enough good things about The Riverhouse. Everything was absolutely amazing. The venue is gorgeous, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and very responsive to my questions. The food is so good! The bridal attendant was wonderful, our parents were so impressed that someone was checking up on them as well as on us. I could go on for hours, but I'm so, so glad we picked the Riverhouse. Everything was perfect. I absolutely recommend them!

We had our wedding The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station on 10/15/17 and I can not say enough good things about it! The venue was absolutely beautiful. The staff was so understanding and accommodating. Our day of coordinator and bridal attendant were on point with everything we needed. The staff was so helpful during our planning process and they answered every question and concern we had so quickly. Our day was absolutely perfect and magical thanks in large part to this venue. We had a BLAST and yes, the food really is that good!!!

My husband and I are so happy with our decision to have our wedding at the Riverhouse. Everyone that we worked with were absolutely amazing. From the planning process to the day of, they were so helpful, and always answered our emails and phone calls the same day (usually within hours)! They made our reception run smoothly, and they treated us like royalty for the day! One of our guests mentioned how great the bartenders were, and I actually had to say that I didn’t have to go up to the bar once; all drinks were brought to us. And that is only the beginning of the list of all the little things that they did for us. The riverhouse is such a beautiful venue, and the people there are so amazing and really know how to turn a wedding into beautiful memories that will last a lifetime! We would recommend this venue to whoever is looking to have a gorgeous, memorable wedding.

I absolutely LOVED The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station! They really made the wedding planning process easy and organized, and the venue is gorgeous! They answered all of my questions throughout the time leading up to the wedding in a timely fashion, which helped put my mind at ease. Kelley and Jill are awesome to work with and Linda did a great job coordinating my rehearsal and wedding day! Everyone was so professional and kind which made our day even more special! I would highly recommend this venue. The views of the river from the back deck are amazing, the bridal patio is the perfect place for an outside ceremony and it's an overall romantic place!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience having our wedding at the Riverhouse! The staff, ambiance, food , music , everything was perfect that day. The coordinators went above and beyond to work with my husband and I in every sense. If something off did happen that night , my husband and I weren’t aware because the riverhouse team had everything handled behind the scenes . I could go on and on , but you really pay for what you get with these guys ! Professionalism, class, and hospitality are truly their specialty! Thank you Riverhouse for the wedding we will never forget !

We had to change our venue last minute due to a fire at our originally booked venue. The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station was happy to accommodate us on such short notice. They were very flexible and helpful in ensuring we had the perfect wedding!

There truly are not enough good things to say about the Riverhouse! My husband and I held our wedding reception here about three weeks ago, and everything was perfect from start to finish! From the moment we booked with the Riverhouse, to the day of the wedding, every single person we worked with was fantastic. Hattie, Kelley, Kelley, and Jillian were all wonderful to work with, and made sure that our day was exactly what we wanted it to be. Joann and Michelle took excellent care of us during the reception! The food is AMAZING. We loved all of it, and our guests commented on how great the food was too! The cocktail hour had 6 butler passed hors de oeuvres and a lovely harvest table. Open bar for 5 hours was part of the package, as was our wedding cake, which we had Kim bake (from Kim's Cottage Confections). The venue itself is just beautiful. The foyer is stunning with the stonework on the walls, and an impressive center staircase. Large windows with elegant curtains line the exterior walls, and there are some comfy seating areas on either side of the foyer. The ballroom is huge with high ceilings and french doors that line the perimeter of the room. We had about 115 guests and no one felt crowded at any time. There is also a back deck for cocktail hour and a patio off to the side for on-site ceremonies. Overall, we had an unbelievable experience with the Riverhouse. Our wedding was all we dreamed it to be and more! You will not be disappointed here! Go check it out!

We are so happy that we decided to use The Riverhouse as our wedding reception venue. From the beginning Kelley and Jillian were helpful, responsive, professional, caring, and pleasant to work with. We could tell they were excited for us and always emailed or called us back right away when we had questions. Kelley often gave us a hug before we left, and we felt genuinely taken care of and respected even when we bombarded her with tons of questions. They had a great timeline schedule of meetings, and met with us the week of the wedding to collect all our decorations, go over our schedule for the day, and answer any last questions. They were so flexible in terms of working with us to accommodate our needs. We needed to start the reception half an hour later than they typically run, and they adjusted our per person price accordingly which then allowed us to throw on the price of gold charger plates underneath our regular plates as a bonus decoration. Compared to other venues in the area, we got a lot of awesome add-ons for a really good price, such as wine service with dinner included, as well as the 6 passed appetizers, open bar, house music, and champagne greeting. The actual day of our wedding was perfect! We were and are so happy with the presentation of the whole event. The tables and atmosphere were beautifully set up with the napkins and table overlays that we had chosen. They had a bridal attendant keeping tabs on how we were doing and bringing us champagne. The bartender was super friendly. The entire venue was just clean, beautiful, and elegant. I could not have been happier with The Riverhouse staff and atmosphere. And last but not least, the food was amazing. We got many compliments during and after the wedding on how delicious the food was, and wedding food is sometimes hit or miss! The Riverhouse sent us home with several slices of our cake to enjoy the next day, as well as a small package that included chocolates, and champagne-a total surprise.
