25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration
My husband and I were planning a 25th anniversary vow renewal and came across The Gate House. The minute we stepped in and met with Erin, we knew it was perfect! January 9, 2021 was our date. We started planning in September 2020. Erin was extremely attentive, responsive, and she always kept us up to date with changes due to COVID. Two weeks prior we were ready...and then lockdown. Erin called us and let us know what was going on and worked with us with new dates. She consistently checked in and helped us stay excited. Fast forward two months (March 2021) to the night of our event. Everything from decor, a very particular menu, and the team who would be hosting us that night couldn’t have been better. With only a party of 10 it still felt like a true celebration. The food was spectacular, the service impeccable, and the ease of how it all happened was due to the organization and planning of Erin and the team who went as far as coordinating with outside vendors who we had come in. Thank you Gate House...we will be back!!Sent on 20/03/2021

If you’re a foodie, this needs to be your venue
I can’t thank the team at The Gate House enough for pulling off an amazing wedding during COVID. We were one of the few couples that had a small enough group to pull this off, and with everything, the staff and crew made us feel so comfortable and right at home. Not to mention the food. It’s actually one of the main reasons we chose this venue because it’s catered by the amazing team at Treadwell. My guests are still talking about the food, and we’re semi debating an anniversary dinner again here with our family and close friends. We both have HIGH standards for food and service and this team COMPLETELY delivered. It was a magical day, made better with Erin and the team. We can’t thank you enough.Sent on 14/09/2020
