    From the moment we toured Castle Manor Inn, we knew this was the venue! Laura, the owner, made everything so easy and guided us through the process. She was so organized, poised, and able to calm everyone's nerves. She even crafted us a boutonniere when the florist brought us one less that we ordered. I COULD NOT TELL WHICH BOUTONNIERE WAS MADE BY THE FLORIST AND WHICH ONE WAS MADE BY LAURA!!! She really saved the day.

    Castle Manor Inn was also an excellent value for the money and was perfectly suited to our small wedding with only 30 guests. Some other venues wouldn't even talk to us because we didn't meet their minimums. She was also very flexible and we never felt like she was trying to upsell us or price-gouge us. The manor and the grounds were beautiful and the space was perfectly suited to our small gathering. We didn't feel too small for the space like we did in some ballroom-type venues.

    We have had dinner at the on-site Sea Glass restaurant before and knew the food was amazing, and the food was no less delicious at our reception. We served filet mignon as one of our entrees with horseradish sauce and it was melt-in-your-mouth amazing. The chicken saltimboca appetizer was also unbelievably delicious! They have a truly talented chef; you are not getting bland banquet food!

    The only small criticism is that we found the beds to be uncomfortable. We stayed two nights and my and my husband's backs were hurting in my morning.

    In any case, I would HIGHLY recommend this venue and Laura really went above and beyond to make our day as magical and stress-free as possible. She's awesome!

    Laura was an absolute angel! From beginning to end, our first tour to the morning after, my husband and I have felt so lucky to be planning with Laura. Even in my day of panic, she knew just what to do at every step of the way and was so poised in every regard. Her awesome staff took great care of us day of, and our guests all commented on how excellent our venue choice was . The Bridal Suite was a perfect space to get ready, while Laura did the rest downstairs. We can't wait to share pictures of our beautiful early fall wedding at Castle Manor Inn! Laura also hooked us up with our DJ, florist, and JP - She knows someone who does everything and we were so happy with all of her recommendations!
