What folks are saying about us

Great location in a historic treasure. Willing staff aims to delight their customers!

Due to COVID-19 we postponed our big wedding and had a small ceremony and dinner with 25 guests. Cynthia was a dream to work with – super responsive, very helpful with suggestions for layouts and color schemes, and met with me (safely, following all guidelines) multiple times to walk through the space and make sure it would be “just right”. Our family and guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the venue is! If you’re planning an event in Milford, this is the perfect spot! I can’t recommend it enough, it was absolutely perfect for our COVID-conscious wedding.

We had a baby shower here and it was the perfect setting. very elegant and clean. My guests raved about how beautiful it was. Cynthia was a dream to work with work planning the event and very accommodating. Met with her several times to make sure all our needs would be taken care of.
The space is large enough to have a decent amount of guests and be within (covid-19) guidelines.
I highly recommend and hope to have more functions here.

We had a fantastic event last night with rave review about the house. Most guests wanted to move in ASAP. The space lended nicely to our event as people wandered from room to room with more than ample seating. Thank you again!

We used the space for a sweet 16 party. The spacious rooms in the house flowed very well. We used 2 rooms for dining and gathering, one for a buffet, and the other for a DJ and dancing. The paint, lighting, fireplaces and wood floors are beautiful. We will use this facility again in the future.

My experience at the Colonel Shepard’s was from my wife’s fortieth birthday party. My friends and family had a great time enjoyed the building the location was perfect. I recommend the Colonel Shepard’s to all my friends for any gathering. Thanks Again!

We thoroughly enjoyed holding our wintertime event in this quintessential New England venue as opposed to a cookie cutter event space. Cynthia was very helpful in allowing our vision come to life. The amount of space available was able to support our large guest list but the intimacy of the floor plan made for a more friendly homelike vibe. The caterer kitchen allowed for us to keep the food and beverage flowing freely the entire nite. We cannot recommend the Colonel Shepard House more highly.
