A dream come true
Carmen’s Country Inn was the best choice that I made for my wedding. From the beginning, the communication with Cathy was seamless. As a bride and groom, we were planning our wedding on our own from across the country; and Cathy was an angel throughout the entire process. Every portion of food from appetizers, entres, sides, to deserts was spectacular. Guests were talking about the food for days (my friends are still drooling over the marshmallow icing marble wedding cake). The venue is breathtaking. I love being able to walk the beautiful gardens; and they were the perfect setting for photos. The indoor area is already so elegant that the decorations really only add to the beauty that already exists. The indoor venue also had the advantage of two dance floors (one in the dining area and one in its own separate area), a bar, and a cigar deck connected to the dance floor that allowed the guests easy access to leisurely relax outside. The most refreshing detail was the service. All of the waitstaff, bartenders, and Cathy made the experience wonderful from start to finish. The food was served promptly, we were never rushed or made to feel stressed, and the waiters even came outside with the appetizers to ensure that the bridal party received their hors d'oeuvres while taking photos. Last but certainly not least, out of all the venues that we researched Carmen’s had the entire package and was the most affordable. Especially planning my wedding from out of state, I really appreciated having the catering, the decorating, the linens, the cake all handled in one location. Carmen’s Country Inn and Gardens made my wedding a true dream come true.Sent on 06/16/2019

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.
