Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Down a country lane and surrounded by 110 acres of manicured lawns, trees and wildlife, Birch Hill is just minutes from Albany, Rensselaer, and the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. Featuring rolling lawns, a duck pond, gazebo, and vineyard, the grounds offer a scenic backdrop for your wedding as well as great photos.
  • The Conservatory Ballroom boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and opens to three outdoor terraces, while the Columbia Ballroom comes with a 30-foot ceiling, stone fireplace, and private patio. More intimate gatherings are held in the Lodge Ballroom, notable for its carved redwood ceiling and fossil stone fireplace. For something more rustic, there's the Stablegate Barn next to the vineyard.
  • You'll enjoy the services of the experts at Birch Hill Catering throughout your planning process, whether you host your celebration here or at sister venue Stablegate Barn, Lodge and Vineyard. A complimentary wedding coordinator will assist with all the details, and the executive chef and culinary staff will create a reception meal that showcases fresh, seasonal ingredients that are locally sourced as much as possible.
