Brides & Grooms

From the amazing scenic views of the Green Mountains, to the beautiful pond out behind the restaurant with a fountain in the middle, to the incredible service, and the food it made the perfect setting for our summer wedding. Not to mention, it was so affordable for us, and worth every penny. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have their dream wedding in Vermont.


I was able to have my dream wedding at Tourterelle. The setting was beautiful and fit my rustic theme perfectly. Christine, the owner, was a pleasure to work with and I enjoyed every moment of my wedding planning experience with her. There is no way to put into words how wonderful of a person, wedding planner, or inn owner she is! You will just have to meet her for yourself!Every detail that I had imagined in my head came to life on my wedding day. I was able to relax and take in all of my hard work and planning while Christine made sure everything fell into place. My only complaint is that I can't plan a wedding at Tourterelle every year!

We visited wedding venues all over the state of Vermont, searching for something that was classic and quintessential Vermont without being out-of-this-world-expensive. We decided on Tourterelle for a number of reasons and were so glad we did! The location, about five minutes out of Middlebury, provides ample lodging for guests, after-party bars to keep the wedding going into the wee hours of the night and lots of Vermonty activities for your out-of-town friends and family. When looking back on it, there are many choices for wedding venues in Vermont, but I think you'll be hard-pressed to find one with people are caring as Christine and Bill, and as nimble and flexible. I also don't think you'll find a more beautiful ceremony location and quintessential Vermont barn for the prices at Tourterelle.


We are both native Vermonters and wanted to show our guests how much that means to us. The outdoor hall is beautiful with a red barn look but open to excellent views of the mountains. We had the wedding ceremony as well as the reception on site. It was convenient for the guests (and us!) to not have to travel. There were plenty of places on the grounds for the photographer to use for the official wedding photos, and during the photos the guests had space to play lawn games. I recommend having your wedding at Tourterelle 100%!

The food was excellent, the service was professional. Christine will work with you to develop exactly the menu you want for a wedding, as we had several dietary complications on both sides of our family. Wonderful!


My daughter and son-in-law's reception at Tourterelle was absolutely wonderful! The venue is beautiful with amazing mountain views both east and west, as well gorgeous grounds with so many options for taking photos. Throughout the planning process, Christine was so informative, professional, accommodating, and reassuring that on the big day, everyone was able to completely enjoy the festivities. It all went so smoothly! Bill did an amazing job with the food - absolutely everything was delicious, from the appetizers to the desserts! It really was phenomenal, and guests didn't stop remarking about it. I wholeheartedly recommend Tourterelle as a wedding/reception venue! It really is perfect!

We had such a memorable and perfect wedding g at Tourterelle! Christine made everything just fit together, and I had no worries! The food was delicious. My guests had a fabulous time and the atmosphere was just perfect! Would highly recommend to every couple!

We initially visited a host of venues in the Middlebury area, and we left our first visit at Tourterelle knowing it the one for us. Christine is incredible - she is so sweet and made the entire day so memorable. We LOVED visiting a few months prior and sitting down to the dinner that would be served on our wedding night. We lucked out with perfect weather (no small feat in Vermont!) but Tourterelle would be beautiful in any weather. Guests were still telling us how beautiful everything was and how much fun they had a year later. We are so happy with our choice, and plan on visiting Tourterelle on anniversaries for years to come.
