Perfect Intimate Venue
The Covered Bridge Inn is so beautiful and creates an intimate vibe for a large wedding. I fell in love with the venue immediately and Ingrid was amazing through the whole process. We did the wedding weekend and it was absolutely perfect to have everything in once place. The barn is stunning before you bring in any decor. I wish we could do the whole day over again and I wouldn't change a thing!Sent on 05/22/2019
Covered Bridge Inn's reply:Jackie - you are the BEST! Thank you so much for your kind review, your gorgeous wedding, and for bringing the Ocean City club life to the farm! What an amazing group of people and an absolutely unforgettable wedding weekend. The entire process was a breeze, completely enjoyable, and I would LOVE a repeat. I'm gonna bring the farm crowd to Secrets and see if we can hang!

Everything we wanted!
After meeting her one time, I felt like I had known Ingrid my whole life. Her excitement and confidence in us having our wedding at the Covered Bridge Inn made us so assured that we were in good hands and choosing the right place. It was the first and only venue we toured. We knew we were having a big wedding (~215 guests) but didn’t want the typical ballroom or country club feel. The barn was perfect. For someone who loves to plan and be picky with details, it was my absolute dream space. The flexibility in being able to bring all of the decorations in a few days early and get them out on another day made our weekend stress free. The inn itself is a perfect place to get ready and sleep over at. Being greeted with fresh coffee and homemade breakfast in the morning was such a treat. Although we chose to have our rehearsal dinner elsewhere, I’m sure it would have been a really special experience to have it there as well. I can’t say enough about the Covered Bridge Inn and our experience there, other than I wish we had the opportunity to do it over and over again! I’m hoping we will get to return there again in the future :)Sent on 12/10/2019
Covered Bridge Inn's reply:Taylor - Thank you so much for you kindness and your GORGEOUS wedding. You handled every step of the process with grace. You were poised and perfect throughout, and enjoyed the entire experience. It was a breath of fresh air, and a pleasure to be part of. When mother nature tossed us a curve ball, you hit it out of the park, with a smile and a warm heart. It was apparent how much love you and your husband share, and how your families have combined into one solid unit. Just awesome. It was the perfect ending to my 2019 wedding season. Thanks for the memories, and for setting the standard of how a bride should handle planning a wedding.... you should write a book! ( or at least a blog. not even kidding).

The Total Package
I recently had my wedding at The Covered Bridge Inn, October 2019. There was a last minute opening and we booked and planned the wedding in less than 6 months! When the spot opened, I knew I couldn’t pass up such a great opportunity at this very sought out venue in Lewes, DE.
The Covered Bridge Inn is a magical place. As soon as you walk on the property you know that it is very special. The Inn is immaculately kept and cared for. The barn and bridge are so elegant as is and act as the perfect backdrop for your most special day. There are so many unique places to find and take the perfect wedding photos. Every sight is breath taking. Come tour and you will know exactly what I am talking about.
Ingrid, the innkeeper and venue operator really is the star of this operation. It is unreal how hardworking and helpful she is throughout your entire process. She covers every detail. She is there the entire wedding weekend, cooks you breakfast each morning, coordinates vendors and even helps get you down the aisle (something I will never forget). She is such a genuine person and master at what she does. She helped make the entire weekend run so smoothly and I felt at ease knowing my event was in her hands.
Seriously, you are missing out if you don’t tour this venue. My husband and I immediately knew this was where we wanted to say our “I do’s” and I know you will too.Sent on 12/02/2019
Covered Bridge Inn's reply:Victoria, you and I were meant to find each other. We could literally look at each other from across the room, and know what the other was thinking, just from eye contact. It was awesome. We booked a wedding a year and a half away, which is totally normal, and when the option came up for a wedding 6 months out, it only took one look to know we were doing this.

Covered Bridge Inn is the perfect venue for your wedding weekend! Ingrid, the Innkeeper, offers a full weekend to their brides and so much space to work with! 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.
