Incredible Venue!

Fishermen's Inn was an incredible venue to have our wedding!! Here are a few highlights from working with this venue!
1. The venue is stunning. The high vaulted ceilings and decor is gorgeous and the grounds are beautiful! Even during the winter, the location is stunning. We loved the rustic chic look!
2. Fantastic communication! Kate was incredible to work with as a coordinator. From the day we booked our venue she was communicative, timely and supportive. She was available to us whenever we had questions! On the day of our wedding, she was incredible and made sure everything went smoothly!! Cannot recommend working with her enough!
3. THE FOOD! The food is amazing. Everything from the breakfast buffet, mimosa bar and lunch service was great. The dinner food was delicious and all of our guests had nothing but great things to say about it!
4. The staff is wonderful and so kind! Everyone was so genuinely happy for us!
5. Patti is wonderful to work with, she even gave us a gift on our wedding day from the venue which was so thoughtful and touching!

I would recommend the venue times one million!! A perfect location to marry the love of your life :)

Perfect Wedding Venue!

We loved the venue, staff, and entire wedding experience at Fishermen's Inn! Totally exceeded expectations! After deciding that we wanted to have an outdoor wedding ceremony, it was extremely important to me that our venue had an equally-as-stunning indoor option so that we'd be stress-free in case it rained on wedding day. Fishermen's Inn is GORGEOUS. The flowers, ponds, and trees definitely sold us, but the indoor venue space is also incredible. We ended up holding a smaller pre-ceremony marriage contract signing ritual in that indoor space because we didn't want to let it go to waste! The windows are floor-to-ceiling and make you feel like you're on the pond.

While we were initially hesitant about having split rooms for dinner and dancing, we ended up loving the extra space for dancing (side note: hire One Night Band if you want to keep your guests on the dance floor all night!). Also, the food was delicious! Just know that they only have a few specific dates that you can select to do the food tasting, and it's a pre-set menu (meaning you cannot necessarily try all of the dishes you're interested in). We were planning the wedding from out of town, so we ended up making a special trip to be able to taste the food in advance.

Aside from that, Fishermen's Inn was extremely flexible/accommodating and made everything easy for us, even as we navigated planning the wedding remotely!! We ended up swapping out the soup course (it was July) for sorbet, brought in our own wedding cakes from the Cheesecake factory, made COVID-specific requests, and they executed flawlessly. We also had multiple friends/family members come to tour the venue for us while on Zoom calls with us since we couldn't travel when we were making our selection, and they couldn't have been nicer about it. We can't say enough good things about all of the staff. Kate was our planner, and she relieved all the stress on wedding day by taking care of EVERYTHING! She even made sure that appetizers from cocktail hour and lemonade from the ceremony were available in the bridal suite for us after the ceremony as we shared a few private moments together. We loved how organized and detailed our pre-wedding timeline was, and she made us feel like this was the most important wedding in the world!

We are so happy we chose Fishermen's Inn!!!

Unbelievable! Best day ever

Fishermens inn was the PERFECT place for our wedding. Our coordinator kara was so helpful and easy to talk to the entire year and a half of planning. Day of, as a bride, I didn’t have to think about ANYTHING as she had contacted my vendors and communicated with the set up and the schedule. It was a beautiful day, cocktail hour was outside , the food was amazing (how many people can say that really?) our best man couldn’t get over how good the service was. My husbands uncle said he wants all five of his kids to get married there, and I can’t wait to be a guest in that space!
