Amazing, from beginning to end! Vicky and Dave were perfect and catered to our every need on our wedding day. It made us so happy to know that all of our guests loved the chapel in the pines and the banquet hall. All of our guests were incredibly impressed with how organized and attentive Dave and Vicky were and how much they cared for all of the weddings that are held on the property. Also, Dave was extremely attentive in answering all my emails, which honestly were a lot, being a bride, I wanted to make sure my day was perfect and I felt that Dave listened to all of my requests and made all of them happen smoothly. It filled our hearts with joy to see some of our guests thanking Dave and Vicky for organizing such a beautiful wedding and inquiring them on events they would like to have of their own. If your looking for a place to really make your wedding day special, book Arrowhead Acres; you deserve a perfect wedding, and they will make it happen. More...

Traveled from Ft. Lauderdale, FL to attend my sister-in-law's wedding on 10/5/19. The venue was breathtaking, especially the outdoor ceremony. The owners were extremely attentive to everyone's needs. From the beginning, they let us know what was prohibited, so there were no surprises. If you have respect for their property, you will have no issues. Thank you for hosting such an amazing party. The brides couldn't have been happier! More...

My daughter had her wedding here last night and it was wonderful!  The owners couldn't have done anything more for us!  We had the ceremony outside just as the sun was setting with the fall foliage in the back ground!  The reception was up at the rustic barn which was the setting my daughter wanted and coupled with the lovely fire was the perfect night of dancing and outdoor social area by the fir pit!

Dave and Vicki, I'm sorry about all the negative comments here. We also had our wedding 10.5.19 at the banquet hall and it was amazing. Everything went smoothly and we couldn't be any happier. Thank you for being so caring and making our day so special. Kat &Tiff More...

On 10-05-19 two of my best friends got married at Arrowhead Acres - both the bridal party and the guests could not have been more impressed with the grounds, the banquet hall, the owners, and everything in between. Dave and his wife were beyond kind to us and did everything in their power to make sure the big night went as smooth as possible. They helped us with everything even down to directing our bus driver where to park so the bridal party could get out and inside without being seen by the guests (he even held his hand out for some of us ladies in heels to grab onto so we could get off the bus safely). If you respect the venue and the rules set in place by Dave and his wife to ensure the safety of their staff and their guests you will have absolutely no problems here (they were not unreasonable either - same rules that would apply to any hotel wedding or any other venue of that nature). The amount of time, effort, and love they put into their work is truly something special. I would recommend Arrowhead Acres to anyone looking for a gorgeous location for an upcoming event. More...

We had an incredibly wonderful experience at Arrowhead Acres. We were married at the Chapel in the Pines and had the reception at the Rustic Barn. Dave and Vicki were so helpful from start to finish. We had all the information we needed on the first visit, plus lots of recommendations for other vendors. (We used the caterer they recommended and they were also phenomenal!) They answered emails quickly, were accommodating & friendly, and made the planning process easy.The ceremony setting was charming and woodsy and magnificent.The Rustic Barn area was just what we wanted. Outdoors with a covered roof, next to a roaring campfire, near the animals like donkeys & goats & peacocks & a pig. We fit over a hundred people and a dance floor, and everyone had a blast. Lots of different places to mingle and things to do - there was even horseshoes & volleyball & other games. We had so much fun.(There is also an indoor area for events - we chose the outdoor option)This was also one of the less expensive places we had researched (I originally found it on a message board about *cheap places to get married in mass*) and feel so lucky we found it. It's affordable and totally lovely.Highly recommend. More...

10.5.2019: My sister's wedding was absolutely amazing! The owners were accommodating with the ceremony being outside, and the hall was absolutely beautiful. They were extremely helpful, and I am so thankful for them for making my sister's day so special. They truly care about their venue, and making sure everything goes accordingly. I flew in from Fort Lauderdale Florida, and this venue is honestly the perfect place to get married. We had an amazing time! I HIGHLY recommend this place for your wedding and/or party. More...

I enjoyed my experience here. In the beginning, it seemed a bit difficult to get in contact with them, but they did get back to us. Overall my wedding day turned out beautiful. From the ourdoor spaces and firepit to the indoors our wedding day turned out amazing. I would recommend this place. Thanks Dave and Vicki and staff for making our wedding day awesome. More...

Well I was looking for a venue and came across this one. I’m a little glad that I read the reviews before contacting because it seems like everyone has the same thing to say. If everyone is complaining about an attitude issue from the owner and the daughter being rude to everyone and making threats I’d say that can’t be a a coincidence. Bad reviews will have people look elsewhere which is unfortunate because your venue is beautiful More...

We booked with Arrowhead Acres for our 10/20/17 wedding & worked with Dave, Vicki & their daughter Shawn. All three of them were wonderful from start to finish. They always answered any questions we had quickly & gave us all the information we needed. Their price is more than fair & the venue is beautiful even without adding much to the decor on site (we had a black and white theme and their venue has a lot of white there already with flowers, curtains and the lighting within and outside of the venue areas). Any restrictions they have -they are clear about in the contract, and I felt they were fair and reasonable. All of the information on what they offer on their website is accurate. DIY brides will love this venue, especially those on a budget but I would HIGHLY recommend this venue for any bride! More...

I just can't say enough good things about Arrowhead! Vicki and Dave are so nice and accommodating! They gave my new husband and I the beautiful wedding we dreamed of and Vicki even officiated the ceremony. Everything was perfect. You really must take a tour of their chapel and banquet hall. So perfect. More...

We were married on 3June17 @ arrowhead.
We had a great experience with Dave & Vicki.
We saw that Chapel in the Pines and the campfire my husband and I were both like- let's book it now!
The Banquet hall was perfect - we didn't want anything stuffy and we needed a LARGE floor to dance as we have many friends that like to Country Line Dance. There was no place that could match the chapel, dance floor and campfire to allow everyone to wind down,

We wanted a comfortable place for friends and family to come celebrate our special day with us and they delivered.

You will need to hire a wedding planner or be on your game here. Arrowhead offers some great vendors to work with but you are on your own to pull all the details together. I didn't mind this as it let us create a customized day vs a package deal at other venues.
Dave answered all my questions quickly and offered some suggestions when we needed.

Vendors from their recommendation we used
Liberty Farm (horse & carriage), B&M Catering (Yummy!!), Mendon Greenhouse (Gorgeous flowers and attention to detail)

We had our own 5 Star DJ & Photographer that aren't on their list but I would also recommend for any occasion
DJ Joe Lupica & Jeanette Fuller Photograhpy

I can't say enough great stuff about Dave and Vicki or Arrowhead Acres. From the first moment we stepped out of the car there everything was wonderful. The day of the wedding Dave and Vicki were attentive and helpful, kind and fun to be around. Planning our wedding at Arrowhead Acres was absolutely the best experience possible. You get so much for your money, I will remember the day as magical and gorgeous for the rest of my life. Thank you! More...

It was a okay place to have the wedding, a few things what I didn't like about it, but overall it was a good wedding there. A few things why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because, 1) the bathrooms are terrible. I know it's petty but people were complaining to me about it during the wedding, the light was out in the handicap/bride bathroom so my wife had to use the regular one and she had no room, plus we were told it smelled terrible. 2) Also, another reason is because after pictures were done my bride and I went into the hall and instantly were sweating and hot. So we had asked them to turn on the AC. The wife response was " oh you're hot? I'm freezing right now" so she had the heat on, not a big deal cause then they had turn the air on for us afterwards. 3) one other thing that made me rethink about this place was after we had signed the contract to have our wedding there. I had contacted them asking about what if we had 4 kids there that under 3 and another that was just 6 months old if we have to pay full price since it is a pay by person venue, and we were told yes, if they sit in a seat they have to be considered an adult, I was really flabbergasted by that remark since 2 only stayed for the ceremony and and was only (1) 2.5 year old and a 6 month old that we had to pay a full price for. But they were a lot of good about this place as well. 1) there was NO wedding on the day of, before us, so they allowed us in at 9am to start setting up which was awesome because it made everything easier. 2) everything was super clean in the chapel in the pines, all benchs were cleaned, the beehive that was in the chapel was removed after I had noticed it, and the morning of we were setting up, they literally had an army of people making sure everything was clean. But eventually did More...

Went to a wedding here this past weekend. Absolutely gorgeous. The bride was picked up by the owners wife in a white car (because the bus going to the venue forgot her! !!!!) The fire pit set up in the back for smores made the night great to AMAZING. I would recommend this to all my friends. More...

The ceremony area is beautiful. That is what sold us on using this venue. They also have a great sound system set up in the ceremony area so you can play any songs you choose and everyone can here the ceremony.
The reception hall is nice but a bit plain. They have a lot of plain white decorations up that you have to leave in place and work around.
The cost was pretty high but they do completely list the price of everything on their website which is nice. Overall I am very glad that we chose this venue for our wedding. It was a beautiful day.

Very beautiful grounds, rustic pavilion could use some updating on the sides that enclose in rain or cold. The contract makes no mention of a fee to decorate the night before. If you are able to do it the morning of there isn't a fee. Who has that kind of time on their wedding day? Dave was quick to respond to emails, gazebo area was clean and had flowers, fire was a nice way to end our night. The only complaint was the night of the rehearsal when Dave asked me in front of wedding party and officiant how I was planning on paying him in cash or credit card because he wouldn't take a check at that point. I had mailed it but he didn't receive it till the following day. I was embarrassed and wished he would've pulled me aside. More...

Our ceremony and reception were both held here and it was perfect. My husband and I were treated respectfully and found the owners to be very pleasant to coordinate and work with, this includes the rehearsal where we misunderstood the time and were an hour late and they had no issue staying and helping us through. They ask that the decorations they had provided be left in place and we found it more than a success to decorate however else we wanted to to create a beautiful atmosphere. The grounds are gorgeous and well-maintained, they even filled in some of the larger bumps in the driveway when they learned we would be transporting our cake ourselves (Thank you so much!!). Overall we would highly recommend Arrowhead Acres to anyone looking to be married among the trees! More...

Arrowhead Acres was wonderful and absolutely perfect for our wedding! Dave and Vickie ran things extremely smoothly. Great value, excellent rustic feel, outdoor ceremony area with gazebo is adorable and well kept. They even let us bring a hotdog stand to the fire! You can use any vendor for everything but the alcohol, they make you use the Bartending Services of New England - this was not a pleasant experience for us (one of the bartenders did not show up until halfway through the reception!) However in the grand scheme of things Arrowhead Acres was worth the hassle of the Bartending service. Everything that Dave and Vickie could have controlled was excellent, the only issue was the bartending, which was unfortunately out of their control. More...

I don't really understand all the negative reviews about Arrowhead Acres on here. I just had my wedding there on September 13, 2013. I was absolutely thrilled with the condition of the venue and the service received from Dave and Vicki!! We had our ceremony in the outdoor chapel in the pines. It was raining earlier that day and the benches were completely clean and dry in time for the ceremony. Dave and Vicki are very experienced and know what they are doing!We had no issues with decorating and the owners were very accommodating to our requests to change the way the venue looks (it is very nice and clean to begin with, but we were going for a more rustic theme).I couldn't have asked for better people to deal with or for a better experience on my wedding day!Thanks so much Dave and Vicki!

We found that Arrowhead Acres was a beautiful secret of a gem and was still reasonably priced. We are completely satisfied with the memories of our special day at this amazing venue!

I also wanted to share from the mouth of the groom's grandmother (don't mind the caps, that is how she wrote it):
IF ANYONE IS GETTING MARRIED SOON ARROWHEAD ACRES IS THE PLACE TO DO IT. THE CEREMONY WAS VERY NICE, THE GROUNDS ARE AWESOME AND THE INSIDE RECEPTION WAS FANTASTIC. THE NICEST PLACE FOR A WEDDING I HAVE EVER BEEN TO.

We had our wedding at Arrowhead Acres Saturday, June 16th. The owners Dave and Vikki were wonderful through out the entire process. My husband and I work very strange schedules and they took the time to show us the venue on Memorial Day last year before they left on vacation. The venue is beautiful and was perfect for our laid back wedding. They were just in the price range for our low budget wedding without being "run down" like most venues we check in for the price. There was no hidden fee's so we didn't have to worry about paying extra on our wedding day. Every time I had a question I would email them and get a response within the day. The only flexibility issue was the rehearsal could not be on Friday night at the venue for our Saturday wedding, which is completely understandable since there are Friday night weddings and we worked around it. The day of the wedding Dave helped us navigate the guests into the ceremony and brought the processional down to walk down the aisle. Other than the beginning we did not see them although they were accessible if needed. Overall it was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend the venue for any bride looking for a very pretty venue at a great price. More...

Dave and his team at Arrowhead Acres were great. Everything looked perfect for the rehearsal and the wedding. Dave and his wife helped us out a lot during the rehearsal and were incredibly accommodating during the reception. Dave always answers e-mails really quickly and helps with any question you might have. They made everything easy, and I loved the chapel in the pines. Really great location for the price. More...

An affordable place to host the ceremony and reception. The hard parts were only having one bartending server to choose from. You were able to bring your own liquor only if it was something like the label having the wedding date on it. It does help narrow down that choice though...If food was to be served, it needed to come from and be served by a licensed caterer.
Talking and scheduling with the couple that owns the place was both professional and friendly. I was very impressed with all the safety policies they follow, since it started business soon after the Rhode Island club fires so the chance of a fire starting there is slim to none. The place is gorgeous especially with all the pines and geens around. The outdoor chapel was perfect and amazing for us. Highly reccomened it as well because the dining hall is right next to the pines. If you like being outside and don't have a craving for a ritzy wedding, this is a place to highly consider.

This place is great! If you are looking for simple elegance this is it! They have a "chapel" outside with a gazeebo which is amazing (I wish we were able to use it but it was down pouring! !) Dave Morin is an awesome guy. Always answered calls or returned them very quickly. The inside is huge with a beautiful fireplace. Every aspect of this place could not have been better! More...

Having our wedding at Arrowhead was perfect. We wanted something a bit rustic, but still comfortable for our guests. We had the ceremony at sunset in the outdoor pine grove, followed immediately by the reception in the banquet hall just a few yards away. This set-up allowed us to have the woodsy feel we wanted, but still a comfortable, indoor atmosphere for an evening wedding. This place is NOT fancy, but it is clean and comfortable and easy to dress up. Dave helped us with the planning, seating arrangements, and rehearsal. He did our ceremony music for us, and was available during the reception (including to mop up a spilled cocktail on the floor!). He was extremely responsive in answering all of our questions, and flexible about pretty much everything. Highly recommended! More...

Arrowhead Acres is the ideal place to have an incredible, outdoor wedding on a budget! The Chapel-in-the-Pines is gorgeous and I received many compliments on how beautiful and different it was. The staff is great and accomodate any needs or special requests you might have. You can even have a hayride and campfire! More...

This reception is the most beautiful among the dozens I looked at in the area. Though it was a little more than I had budgeted, the hall is beautiful, there's a dance floor, a huge fireplace for photos, an outdoor deck, an outdoor chapel, a large area in the back for caterers to work with, a seperate cubby for drinks if you have them, and very spacious and beautiful. They provide you with centerpieces if you ask, are open to you coming in and decorating as long as they don't have any events right before; will set up all of the tables with the layout you ask them for, and are very quick to respond. The only draw back is that there is no catering on site, but for the beauty and the flexibility, it's worth it. More...
