Affordable and personable
Carmen's was the first venue we looked at and everywhere else did not come close to the deal you get there. They had the best price and it included everything. There was no nickel and dimming and it didn't cost thousands just to rent the ceremony site like many other venues. They made getting married during a pandemic easy and took every precaution needed while still giving us the wedding we had always dreamed of. We got tons of compliments on the meal and cake too!Sent on 11/24/2020

Check out this venue on wedding spot. I got my initial pricing estimate there.Sent on 04/23/2018
As for the first consultation visit, we made an appointment. The area is quiet, even with being near a major road. The place is extremely affordable, and Cathy was very understanding that we are still figuring everything out. After our tour, we walked around the ceremony sites to get a better feel of the place. Right then and there we knew this was the place for our wedding.
I also want to say thanks again for the suggestion of moving our wedding date. It was initially April, but weather in Mt. Pocono is never dependable. So glad we picked June for the same price.
We will post another review after the Wedding.

The Best Venue in PA
Me and my wife searched for a good venue for our wedding throughout Jersey, PA, and Delaware. A friend of ours mentioned Carmen's Country Inn so we look it up and it looked promising. So we came out to view the location and it was beautiful and Cathy was such a great host. The Cost, Location and Devotion of the staff on our wedding day deserved a standing ovation. The level of professionalism was very impressive, and not to sound arrogant but coming from it means a lot. I was a Live Director of big events for a couple years, and excellence was my standard. Cathy and her staff served us in excellence. When things didn't go as planned they accommodated and if there was a problem Cathy did her best to find a solution. We absolutely loved our wedding day, and Carmen's Inn and Garden played a huge part in making it special. Thank you so much for a day me and my wife will never forget.
