An Amazing Hidden Gem for Intimate Weddings
(Got married here on 3/14/2020.) As the title says, this venue knocked our socks off from the moment we drove up into the parking lot. We had been searching for an affordable, gorgeous venue with no or low-minimum pricing for our ceremony and reception of 17 people. The fact that the General Warren is a restaurant first, lodging second, and I would say venue third, means that they're not relying on venue rentals to sustain them and makes them extremely flexible in terms of event size. We decided to rent out all of the GORGEOUS rooms for our guests, and for the rooms, breakfasts, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, came out to well under $5k! We also had their in-house pastry chef Andy make a small carrot cake as our wedding cake, and it was the best carrot cake we've ever had; still dreaming about it! As it is a restaurant, the food was phenomenal as well.
We did tour a couple other venues before The General Warren, but there were always hidden fees, or we felt rushed or pressured into signing right away, but trust me - the second you walk in the door at The General Warren, you'll know it's meant to be. Everyone makes you feel valued, cozy, and warm, and they can really do anything your heart desires.
No regrets, and I wish we could get married here again!Sent on 12/04/2020

Amazing Venue and Experience
If given the chance to have our wedding all over again (wouldn't that be fun!), we would choose the General Warren Inne every single time. From the moment we booked the venue a year ago to the day after our wedding, we felt completely taken care of. We chose to have a small wedding (~60 people) and do a Saturday brunch. The space was perfect for this size. Both the outdoor ceremony space and indoor spaces are wonderful. Patrick, the proprietor of the GWI, was absolutely amazing. He and his incredibly professional staff were constantly on point. Communication was great and we were never worried about something not going right. Also, our cake was amazing, made by their in-house pastry chef Andy. He did a gorgeous job. We kept the bud vases with fresh flowers and candles that their florist does as our centerpieces rather than getting our own, and they looked perfect. Our guests are still raving about the day and so are we! Thank you GWI!Sent on 11/06/2019
