Create your story at Chez Nous! Wedding Venue in Searsburg

Located just minutes from downtown Wilmington, Vermont and Mount Snow, Chez Nous, has come to life again. With many years of restoration and research, John and Cheryl Mincarelli had a passion for this beautiful home to be shared once again.

The mansion is the former home of the “Heather sisters”, Mary and Celia, who purchased a hardworking dairy farm in the 1890’s and decided to construct a country cottage on the property to live in, they called it Chez Nous. After many owners throughout the 20th century, the property was left to deterioration.

Today, after researching the colorful history of Chez Nous and an ambitious cellar-to-rafter restoration, the mansion stands proudly with a 3,000 sq.ft. barn erected behind the mansion for many events to come. The Mincarelli’s have succeeded with their vision to provide a unique experience to those who want an extra special venue for weddings or events.

  • Beautiful venue, awesome owners! Owners John and Cheryl have created an exquisite venue in Chez Nous. This beautifully restored mansion and newly built barn were the perfect backdrop for our rehearsal, wedding and brunch. Our guests enjoyed every inch of this incredible property. John and Cheryl's attention to detail shines through in every square inch of the mansion, the guest house and the barn. They were extremely easy to work with, supportive of our vision and so eager to share their property with us and our guests. We couldn't have chosen a better venue.
  • Sara and I recently held our wedding at Chez Nous this past weekend. Chez Nous is not like any other venue out there. The property is absolutely stunning. It makes you feel like you are in your own corner of New England. From the warmly lit Barn to the gorgeous Farm House, each piece of the property offers a different story to tell and offers endless options for your special event. We got the pleasure of working closely with the owners John and Cheryl as well. They always made sure to keep in touch, answered our endless amounts of questions in a timely manner and gave us advice along the way. Both John and Cheryl welcomed us into their home with open arms and helped us make our dream wedding a reality. Sara and I consider John and Cheryl family and cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work this past weekend to ensure our wedding was perfect! We would absolutely recommend Chez Nous to anyone looking for that perfect New England venue to host their special event. We cannot thank you enough and will cherish the memories made at Chez Nous for a lifetime.
