We held our wedding ceremony here under the lush trellis surrounded by the breathtaking surrounding gardens & waterfalls
We knew as soon as we approached the entrance to Carmen’s Country Inn & Gardens that it’s was going to be something spectacular. The pins, grassy meadows, the various breathtaking gardens, waterfalls, gazebo, well equipped outdoor deck. The elegant & beautifully furnished/decorated large reception space were all impressive. Plenty of parking. I loved that our party would be the only one held there & we’d have the entire place to ourselves. We already knew prices were very affordable for a quality catered experience offering us many flexible options & choices in food & beverage. Cathy the proprietor was so responsive from our first email to every contact throughout. She’s a lovely person, has a calm & reassuring manner & just has such a nice vibe. Cathy contacted me as soon as our county started having restrictions due to Covid & we made adjustments. Cathy graciously allowed us to still have our ceremony at the Country Inn. We gathered in small numbers to follow local, state & federal guidelines. Cathy allowed us to postpone our reception for a year at the same price. She was helpful & attentive to our needs. John & I wanted an experience where everything was taken care of so that we could enjoy it. We had not one worry because we knew Cathy would take care of everything. She offered helpful referrals to other vendors. That’s how John & I met Grace who was so lovely & created a beautiful ceremony which she officiated for us. Cathy even gave us a wedding cake as our plans were to celebrate at home since we postponed our reception. It was DELICIOUS. We loved it there. Our outdoor wedding was such a beautiful experience. The grounds are gorgeous. I so look forward to going back & celebrating. I know Cathy will take care of every detail next year as well!Sent on 07/06/2020

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.
Carmen's Country Inn & Gardens's reply:Thank you Jennifer for your kind words! I and my staff look forward to giving you the wedding of your dreams!!

Everything was perfect!
Our wedding was 10/26/2019 and everything went perfectly. We wanted a Halloween theme, Cathy allowed us to arrive early to the rehearsal to decorate. It started to rain/drizzle at the time of our ceremony Cathy asked if we wanted to start early before the rain gets worse. Every bit of food was fantastic, our guests loved everything! The day was perfect!Sent on 10/31/2019
