The Mountain Rose Inn is a stylish, new wedding venue in Greenfield, Massachusetts, with lush grounds and loads of charm.
Promoted as a great place to have an outdoor wedding, The Mountain Rose Inn has landscaped gardens and lawns set with stone pathways. There is also a cozy gas firepit. And, of course, lots of roses! But the show stopper is the view: from The Mountain Rose Inn you can really get a sense of the Pioneer Valley’s majesty. It was the view that drew owner and manager Kasey Richards to the Inn in 2018. “You pull into the driveway and the view is stunning - it just kind of takes your breath away,” Richards said.
The Mountain Rose offers guests the use of a tented ballroom with satin-draped ceilings and elegant chandeliers. The posh canvas can accommodate up to 175 people. Couples also have the option of renting out the 6-room Inn to host out of town guests or just to have extra room for relaxation and fun.
Richards said one of the reasons her venue stands out in Western Massachusetts is that she renovated with an eye to high-class elegance as opposed to traditional, rustic New England chic. Though if rustic-chic is what a bride and groom wants, The Mountain Rose Inn can make that happen, too. The venue is customizable to any couple’s unique style.
“We’re a blank slate,” Richards said. “Any vision can fit into this space.”
Because it is mostly an outdoor venue, the wedding season at Mountain Rose is May through October. In the future, Richards said she’d like to have the venue open and hosting weddings year round.
The Mountain Rose Inn on Smead Hill Road was purchased by Kasey Richards in 2018. She owns and manages the venue while Ryan Harrison is the grounds manager. Before Richards’ incarnation, The Mountain Rose has lived several lives in Western Massachusetts. First it was a bed and breakfast called The West Winds Inn. In 2013 it was purchased and renovated into a wedding venue called Alexlee House. Under Richards’ ownership, the Inn has been painted inside and out, the driveway has been freshly paved and many upgrades have been made to the aesthetic.
