We chose the Crystal River Inn for several reasons. It's location in the historic district and in perfect proximity to the San Marcos Square. The garden & the cozy rooms; that make you feel welcomed and relaxed. We expressed to Ms. Cathy, that we wanted cute, sweet, simple and elegant. Like a Fairy Tail, her and her staff granted our Wish. We didn't have to worry about anything. The food, OMG was delicious! The morning of our wedding they served poached pears, quiche with bacon and a sliced tomato covered with cheese. They catered the reception, we chose The Pasta Bar. Everything was fresh hot and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. All of our guests sincerely enjoyed their meals and went back for seconds. If you are looking for friendly customer service, peaceful atmosphere, delicious food, enjoy beautifully kept historic buildings, lovely Gardens and ponds. Then the Crystal River Inn is definitely for you.Sent on 10/31/2018

We had the most wonderful experience here for our daughter's wedding and reception. Cathy worked with us on what we had budgeted, and then vendors she suggested in San Marcos were great. My daughter felt like the princess she is.Sent on 02/15/2013
