“Avoid as a wedding venue”
Reviewed 11 January 2010

I attended a wedding in January. The barn was too small for the event. We were very cold and crowded in the downstairs coctail area and were too warm on the third floor dining level. The food was at best mediocre, but the servicewas dreadful. The servers would not even bring drinks to the table,except bottles of wine. Coffee and deserts were on a different level,which required you to walk down open back wooden steps.The venue was a total disappointment I nwould avoid it during the Winter.

Room was a good size, but everything - including the bathroom - was well worn. It was cold and rainy outside, but the heat did not stop even when shut off. Breakfast consisted of a few bagles, a little fruit and granola. With all the nice places to stay in the Berkshires, this is one to avoid, espeically and the very high prices charged.

Unless you are in the wedding of course.... our stay was ruined by a loud wedding party and their unruly children who ran screaming through the place. The owner tried to step in but when parents are oblivious, it's difficult...

The barn rooms are beautifully appointed and cosy. We had a lovely, romantic dinner at the next door Old Inn on the Green which I highly recommend.

We thought the breakfast could be a lot nicer for the expense of Gedney. The continental breakfast was not nicely refurbished and people were scrambling for plates, cups...

Stayed for the required 2 nights. We were attending a friend's wedding. The wedding was nice, but our room was small, cramped, hot, and dirty. The ac wasn't working. And, when it rained, the roof leaked. WE should have stayed in the Comfort Inn in Great Barrington. It would have been cleaner and cheaper. Also, the included breakfast was a joke. We opted to drive the 10 miles to the Friendly's in Great Barrington to eat breakfast. It was the closest place open.

We attended our nephew's wedding and could not have been more pleased with the whole experience. Our quaint and rustic room was on the first floor. It included a fireplace and an extremely compfy bed. We stayed for two nights. We dined at The Old Inn on the Green our first night. .....Wonderful!!!!!

The setting at Gedney Farm, inside and out, was so pleasant. As for the wedding.....it was beautiful....simple and elegant all at once. The reception dinner couldn't have been better. The table settings and centerpieces were so tastfully done. The food was scrumptious and beautifully prepared, starting with a great selection of canapes and leading to a delicious soup, salad and entree. It was obvious that all who attended were as delighted as we were.

  • Liked — It was all geared toward a great wedding and reception---mission accomplished!

Reviewed 13 November 2006

We were married in a very small ceremony at the Gedney farm property Mepal Manor and could not be happier. We did not tour the property in advance, but were blown away on arrival. The location was hard to find (I reccomend using their directions, not mapquest) but was spectacular and the staff were freindly and attentive without being at all invasive. Fireplaces were lit wherever we went and we were offered afternoon tea daily. The breakfast is continental but includes granola, yougurt and fresh muffins. The Inn is expensive, but for a special occasion or romantic getaway, worth every dollar.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Gedney Farm.....Great time!!!!
Fantastic old barn which was converted into 10 rooms...some with fireplaces, other with whirlpool baths. Had a great dinner & wine at their restaurant Old Inn on the Green (1/2 mile up the road) on Christmas night. If you are looking to get away from it all.....check this place out. We also had a massage at their spa a few miles away which was great. The only bad part were hidden charges on our bill....service charge on dinner (for a party of two??!!) gratuity added to our massage bill (I wish I would have known!) But do not let this ditsract you from checking this place out.
