    Beautiful Venue, Top Notch Service and Amazing Value

    My husband and I couldn't be happier with the General Warren for our intimate wedding! It is such a uniquely beautiful historic venue.

    Patrick, the owner, was truly a pleasure to work with planning our wedding and coordinating on the big day. He was so accommodating and organized - no detail was overlooked! The staff are equally as amazing. They were friendly, professional and very attentive and worked so hard to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams.

    The General Warren provides everything you need in one place. In addition to having multiple gorgeous location options for our ceremony and cocktail hour they also have a top notch restaurant with several different private rooms for us to choose for our reception. The food was incredible and their in house pastry chef did an amazing job with our wedding cake. Above the restaurant they have an inn with eight suites available to rent. The suites are beautiful and spacious and were perfect for getting ready before the ceremony and allowing our guests to stay at the venue after the reception rather than worrying about transportation.

    We had such an amazing time and our friends and family were raving about the beautiful venue, delicious food and top notch service. We can't wait to come back again in the future and would recommend The General Warren to anyone!

    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!
