Our wedding and reception were magical. We had an outdoor ceremony & indoor/outdoor reception at the Rochester Community House, a lovely venue that is on the grounds of the Rochester Park with access to the Paint Creek Trail. It is scenic and doubles as an amazing place for photographs.The food, catered by the Canape Cart, was top-notch, and the DJ, live Renaissance musicians, and facility staff made sure that our day and evening were memorable.
The Rochester Community House has an outdoor patio and gazebo that accommodates up to 100 guests for a lovely outdoor ceremony. In case of inclement weather, there is also an indoor option with a wall of windows that overlook the park. The wedding package is reasonable and flexible, allowing you to bring in your own officiant for a custom ceremony. The RCH staff made sure everything ran smoothly for the wedding party and guests. It was a day we will always remember!
The inside of the Rochester Community House is casually elegant and cozy, with a large foyer and hall that accommodates up to 100 guests very comfortably. The hall is carpeted and has a fire place and bar, along with a polished hardwood floor for dancing and entertainment. The venue is positioned in the woods by the Rochester Park and Paint Creek Trail, making views from all the windows spectacular. It is a charming choice to customize as desired to make your event special.
Although this is a high-end hotel, it's worth the splurge for a special occasion. There is an outdoor patio for dining and drinks with a wonderful themed happy hour on weekday afternoons. Situated on the lovely Paint Creek Trail, it's great for runners and walkers to get in a quick hike or slip into downtown Rochester for some boutique shopping or a full spectrum of dining options.
We didn't use this budget friendly option for out-of-town guests but it's a convenient location (close walk to downtown Rochester). It provides basic accommodations with no frills for those who really only want a room and not access to a spa, pool or fitness facility.
