Rental Reviews

Read a review from one of our many visitors:

“We recently hosted a brunch (June 2018) for family and friends on our wedding weekend. We rented The Atwood House Museum and Stallknecht Barn and were so pleased with our event! We coordinated with Kevin and Danielle, who were both very helpful and accommodating, and they were wonderful in terms of showing us the facility ahead of time and helping us best plan for the event. Kevin answered all of our questions and always responded in a timely way. Additionally, day of, they were so helpful with planning table locations and even working with our caterer to set up the buffet location before we arrived. Our guests ate in the mural barn and then were met by a handful of wonderfully informed docents who toured our guests through the museum to learn about Chatham’s history. We had both adults and children (the Atwood House has wonderful children’s exhibits) and we got lots of feedback about what a great idea it was to have our Sunday brunch there….Everyone loved the food (thanks to Marion’s Pie Shop) and the ambience. Guests were impressed by the museum’s quality. Huge success — we were so pleased to be one of the Atwood House’s first “private events” and highly recommend the Stallknecht Mural Barn to anyone looking to host a gathering. Thank you to Kevin, Danielle and all the volunteers at the Atwood. We will be returning, both for a visit and hopefully for another event soon.”
