Our experience at the Covered Bridge Inn for our Wedding Weekend exceeded our expectations and was nothing less than perfect! Ingrid (the Innkeeper/Owner) and her entire staff are truly amazing. Their attention to detail along with ensuring your needs are met made our entire wedding experience easy going. I can not recommend this venue enough to friends and others who are looking for a beautiful venue along with the generosity Ingrid and her staff offer. You can not go wrong and I wish we could relive this day over and over again!Sent on 07/11/2018

Wedding of our Dreams
Our wedding was a dream come true at the Covered Bridge Inn. From the moment we stepped onto the property to tour, our experience with the innkeeper, Ingrid, was seamless. She has an extraordinary attention to detail and worked with us to achieve the wedding of our dreams. We truly enjoyed having the property "as our own" for the weekend and utilized every inch of it! From the reception barn to the milking parlor to the beautiful inn, our wedding weekend was perfect. It's incredibly nice to stay in one location starting from the rehearsal dinner through the ceremony and reception and ending with the morning-after brunch. Less time for traveling between locations and more time enjoying the celebration. I would redo our wedding over and over again at the Covered Bridge Inn and would recommend it to any bride and groom looking for a venue that is versatile, flexible and comfortable. Thank you Ingrid :-)Sent on 11/29/2018

We found out about the Covered Bridge Inn through word of mouth shortly after Ingrid transformed a portion of her family farm into this gorgeous venue. We set up an appointment and toured the grounds, and knew immediately that it was the venue for us, not only because the grounds are just stunning but also because Ingrid was so helpful and clearly devoted to making our day perfect for us--and that she did. Ingrid was attentive and thoughtful, she stayed in the background most of the day of but somehow popped up just when we needed her. She paid attention to detail and compensated in areas that lacked (for example my florist forgot to make our aisle flower pieces and Ingrid improvised, without request, by adding beautiful holly bushels to the end of each aisle). Not to mention the abundant and delicious breakfast she provided for the bridesmaids the morning of the wedding and her assistance in setting up the ceremony and reception. In addition to the amazing Ingrid, the venue is just perfect. It provided a romantic, moody and rustic feel--perfect for a casual but sexy wedding space. We also held our rehearsal dinner at the venue in the dairy barn (a first I believe) and I couldn't get over the romance and intimacy the space provided! The room still has the original white metal dairy stalls that add an antique touch. We added to the space by lining the room with wooden harvest tables garnished with sage and white pumpkins. Votive candles, brass candlesticks and a string of Tuscan lights provided warm light. Add Italian catering and red wine to top it off. This is just to show you how amazing the venue is and how you can make it special for your day. I can't say enough good things about Ingrid and her venue. If a rustic, yet romantic feel, with freedom to make it your own is what you're looking for, this is a great option for you.Sent on 12/11/2018

Offering space in the dairy barn, the larger barn, the covered bridge, and of course the inn! Ingrid is amazing to work with - helping with ceremony set up, clean up, and more. Covered Bridge is definitely a preferred venue in this area!
What a great venue! The owner is a pleasure to work with and the venue is beautiful.
