Welcome to Special Events at Ragamont House—

Ragamont House, the stately Greek revival on Main Street in Salisbury, Connecticut, is the ideal venue for a unique and special occasion. Whether you are planning a rehearsal dinner or a wedding reception, a retirement luncheon or a graduation party, a simple cocktail party or a business celebration, a summertime picnic or a casual get-together with close friends, Ragamont's Regency-inspired dining room, spacious, art-filled living room, cozy library and expansive, colorful private garden make any event genuinely splendid.

Using in-house staffing, and with very little notice, we can easily accommodate a variety of other events, such as formal and informal seated dinners and luncheons, hunt and shooting breakfasts, birthday parties, recitals, lectures—virtually anything you can think of. We have a cadre of additional highly trained wait staff and numerous rooms, so anything is possible!

Cozy fireplaces abound, and the mahogany table in the Regency-inspired dining room can be set formally with sterling silver or more whimsically, with colorful table linen and unique stemware. Take a tour of the rooms at Ragamont House.

Bruce M. Young, the internationally trained Executive Chef at Ragamont House, brings over twenty-five years of culinary experience to our table. Working in kitchens from a young age, Bruce’s part-time work soon became a full-time passion, and his background in the classic European tradition of apprenticeship is evident in the superb results that emanate from the Ragamont Kitchen. Bruce's knowledge of local fare of the highest quality, combined with his culinary training, create the versatility and creativity that characterize both fine and casual dining at Ragamont. Read more about Bruce—Ragamont’s Executive Chef.

And now for the pièce de résistance: The Lodging on the second floor of Ragamont House consists of three spacious and elegant accommodations. Thus it is possible to stage a truly grand event in the rooms below and then ... simply retire upstairs to your own elegant bedroom, complete with a private corridor, cathedral ceiling, cozy sitting area and spacious bathroom. Please visit our Lodging page for photographs and details.

The host at Ragamont House is Phillips “Pete” Hathaway. A native of Baltimore, Pete moved early on to New York City, where he trained at Christie’s Auction House in London, yet soon switched to Sotheby’s where he eventually became head of the Eighteenth-Century European Furniture and Decorative Arts Department. While at Sotheby’s he was responsible for the design of some of their record-breaking “celebrity” auctions, such as the collections of Andy Warhol, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, The Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Gianni Versace, as well as many other prominent single owners.

Pete purchased Ragamont House in 2002 and began a two-year renovation of the derelict Historic Landmark building. Because of Pete’s auction-house career and his extensive world travels, special events at Ragamont offer a fascinating glimpse into his eclectic past. Pete and his residences have been written up in Art and Auction, Elle Décor, Town and Country, House Beautiful, Departures, Travel and Leisure, House & Garden, Architectural Digest, W and in many newspapers.

For the over nine years that Pete has been a member of the Northwest Corner Community, he has opened Ragamont’s doors for a number of local charities, including worthy causes such as The Women’s Support Services, The Scoville Library and Salisbury Family Services. Pete is a member of the board of The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Middendorf Foundation and a founding member of “The Dream Team” at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
