Create your story at Chez Nous!
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.
Chez Nous will enable you and your guests to create memories to be cherished.
Mansion & Barn
The perfect venue for your special event. . .
Vermont’s premiere wedding venue . . .
Chez Nous is a meticulously restored 20 room mansion. Six spacious and beautifully decorated bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms on the second floor.
On the first floor there are lots of private little corners for intimate chats along with large open spaces for your guests to mingle. The very large, French Country style, kitchen/dining area is big enough for an intimate get together yet cozy enough for a family breakfast.
Rehearsal dinners are ideal on the expansive wrap-around, covered front porch with seating for up to forty people.
Our four season barn is the perfect spot to host your event. With capacity at 250 people, there is plenty of space for tables and seating, an area for your band or DJ, an area for caterers to prep and set up and a large bar.
The private loft room above the barn will be great for the Groomsmen to get ready for the wedding or just hang out and play a game of foosball.
There is lots of space outside the barn for setting up an arbor to get married under or a tent if needed in case of inclement weather.
The natural beauty of the Vermont countryside and the Heather Brook which flows in front of the mansion, lends itself as an ideal backdrop for weddings and picture perfect events.
Vermont’s natural beauty surrounds the property with the “Heather Brook”, walking paths into the woods and beautiful star lit skies at night.
