Magical setting + expert management = worry-free wedding
The Fontainebleau is an exceptionally beautiful setting. The house is warm and welcoming, and the grounds are impeccably groomed, with imposing white pines and a huge lawn sloping down to Cayuta Lake. Terri and John are so experienced that they've thought of everything. Because of their longstanding relationships with local vendors, everything just works without a hitch and there are no unexpected issues. My son was recently married there and we couldn't have been more pleased with the whole experience, from start to finish.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. The wedding we had here was beyond my wildest dreams. If you want to have an easy--and even fun!--wedding planning process, go with the Fontainebleau. John and Terri make everything go smoothly and give such helpful advice about anything you might need, based on their years of experience. They're also tremendously professional, efficient, and kind people. We never doubted the day was going to go well because we worked with John and Terri's suggested florists and caterers, who were used to putting on weddings at the venue and communicating with John and Terri. Apparently, there was even some difficulty with our chuppah the day of, but we never even had to stress about it, because it got solved without us ever having to get involved! You really get to relax and spend time with family and friends on the day of because you know the venue is taking care of everything.
The Inn is also a very comfortable place to stay, with old-school charm, immaculate grounds, and modern amenities. And, everyone was a big fan of Terri's breakfast spreads.
Based on what I saw while researching venues, and also based on our experience, the Fontainebleau Inn is the best and most beautiful place to have a wedding in the Finger Lakes area. You can't go wrong here.

The Fontainebleau is the perfect place for a mid-size wedding in the Finger Lakes. Terri and John are super easy to work with, are highly responsive both leading up to the wedding and during the event, and are incredibly kind and accommodating. They are pros at what they do. Highly recommended for the value and quality of service.
