About

On WeddingWire since 2022

The Gwyn Careg Inn is an elegant historic wedding venue located in Pomfret Center, Connecticut. Nestled upon 14 acres of manicured lawn and gardens, this colonial revival mansion is ideal for outdoor ceremonies and tented receptions. Here, you can enjoy an exclusive experience immersed in natural splendor with ample space to make your own.

Facilities and Capacity

Located between Boston and New York, The Gwyn Careg Inn is a wonderful option for a weekend wedding, sitting less than an hour from Hartford and Providence. For those venturing from further afield, this destination wedding venue can be easily accessed from Bradley International Airport, TF Green Airport, and Logan Airport. First built in 1761, its grounds possess a distinctive aesthetic and ambiance from a time gone by. Walking through its perennial gardens, its mature grounds filled with century-old rhododendrons, one feels a sensation of stepping back in time. These enclosed Spanish gardens are the favored setting for hosting romantic ceremonies, the tiered landscape allowing for multiple uses and setups. After the vows are exchanged and the wedding portraits captured, the plush surroundings can give way to a tented reception for up to 250 guests. The inn can also host indoor celebrations for 120 or less while offering comfortable accommodations for weekend retreats.

Services Offered

The Gwyn Careg Inn caters to only one wedding per weekend, providing couples with absolute privacy for their most special occasion. All guest rooms are made available to the wedding guests alone, ensuring flexibility and exclusivity. This welcoming venue encourages a personal touch, from the décor to the wedding menu. You are free to customize your wedding feast as you please, with sophisticated sit-down meals, hors d’oeuvres, and dinner stations all available. The courteous staff will be at hand from the cocktail hour to dessert, ensuring your day receives the care and attention it deserves.

Wonderful Garden Venue

The Gwyn Careg Inn was the perfect setting for our wedding of 65 people. The owner is helpful and attentive. The inn is charming and the garden and grounds are a dream. The catering partner is fantastic. Staying at the inn for the wedding was so wonderful and we hope to visit again in the future. A true gem of CT’s quiet corner.

Elegant and Enchanting

The Gwyn Careg Inn was everything my daughter, son in-law, and family dreamed of and more for a wedding venue!
The Inn offers a Spanish garden, where the wedding vows were exchanged. It is a beautiful timepiece surrounded by well manicured flower beds, highlighted with arrangements of seasonal flowers.
The reception was held under a large tent on the sprawling estate, near the Spanish garden, overlooking a large pond with the Inn in the background. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking!
We rented all of the lovely decoratived Inn rooms for the bride and groom, wedding party and immediate family members. Each room is lavishly decorated. The Innkeeper's attention to detail is impeccable, all the way down to ironed bed linens.

The entire experience from start to finish was wonderful. The owners and staff were professional, accommodating, incredibly friendly, and truly a pleasure to work with. Every aspect of the day went as planned; a true testament to their hard work.

We highly recommend the Gwyn Careg Inn for a wedding venue!

European Garden wedding

We loved working with Rose to create our small intimate wedding this past June! Everything was perfect and she was extremely helpful with the details and working with outside vendors. Landscaping is gorgeous and gave it a perfectly rustic garden theme with was magical.
