Weddings Venue

The Inn by the Bandstand is the perfect venue to host a small wedding. The wedding couple can stay in the lovely ‘honeymoon’ suite while family and guests stay in other delightful accommodations at the Inn. In good weather, our Secret Garden Patio is the perfect venue, not only to exchange vows, but to hold a reception afterwards. The Secret Garden Patio can comfortably seat 40 people or about 60 for a more informal reception. Over the years, and with larger weddings, the Inn has hosted a smaller rehearsal dinner the night before with vows and reception being held at larger nearby venues: the bride and groom, family and friends all stay at the Inn.

Since we are a unique destination, we do not have a set formula for a wedding: there are no prearranged menus and associated prices: everything is catered to the couples’ wishes. Depending on their budget, they may wish to have an elegant sit-down dinner in the Inn’s dining room or the Inn can coordinate the event with Otis. Restaurant.

We encourage the newlyweds to visit with us … see what a unique and special venue the Inn is and then determine how best to proceed: we work with Otis. Restaurant, caterers, florists, hair stylists, make up specialists … everything is done to ensure a stress-free special day for all involved.

We are happy to suggest and work with wedding planner the Inn is familiar with or we will work with one selected by the newlyweds!
