Private Gatherings

Let’s Celebrate!

We love hosting private gatherings to celebrate life! We look forward to helping you plan your next celebration, making it a truly special and memorable occasion.

The Griswold Inn, with its variety of dining rooms, is ideal for many types of private events, from small gatherings to business meetings to large parties. Some of our dining rooms have fireplaces and each is a unique space, showcasing our celebrated art collection. Our historic Hayden House, just across the lane from the Inn, may also be used for private celebrations or business meetings. Wireless access is available throughout The Griswold Inn property. Let us customize your event – please contact Claudia Odekerken, our Private Events Manager, by email at or by calling 860.767.1776.

DECEMBER is a wonderful time to experience The Griswold Inn and gather with family, friends or colleagues! With our “halls” fully decked, the “Rockwellian vibe” is in the air. The month-long celebration features a Holiday Bill of Fare with game selections as well as more traditional holiday favorites and Gris Classics. Each evening, while served by costumed wait staff, The Royal Court Singers perform seasonal classics table-side. Special lunch and dinner menus may be arranged.
