History

In the late 1600s, William Penn owned the land. In 1711, 50 acres were purchased by William Morgan, who built part of the farmhouse. After William Morgan's death, Joseph Ambler bought the land. It stayed within his family until John Roberts, who married an Ambler daughter, acquired the land in 1825. He added a living room and dining room to the farmhouse. In 1983, more than 100 years and many owners later, Richard Allman bought 12 acres of the property. He is the current owner of Joseph Ambler Inn.

Philadelphia is 40 minutes from the inn. It is 40 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, 16 minutes from Doylestown and 26 minutes from King of Prussia.

    A special place

    Joseph Ambler Inn is a wonderful venue and the perfect place to have a wedding. We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, after party, and farewell brunch all on-site and many of our guests stayed at the inn over the weekend. The JAI staff was so easy to work with and were extremely accommodating when we chose to postpone a year due to Covid. Having everything in one place was so convenient for us and our guests and every event was handled seamlessly. The food is excellent, the property is gorgeous, and accommodations are charming and comfortable. Alli was our event coordinator and was so helpful throughout the entire planning process. She was very responsive and patient with our many questions and really went above and beyond for us in so many ways. Dana, the Inn hotel manager was also amazing. Our guests booked over 30 rooms and she helped us rearrange our hotel block to accommodate all of our guests needs. We also booked one of the buildings (the John Roberts House) for an after party and she made sure that everything was set up perfectly. Our day-of wedding captain, Meg, was incredible, and helped us navigate the day effortlessly. We were nervous about the rainy weather on the day, and she relieved all of our stress by getting us last minute access to the restaurant’s covered patio so that we could still have cocktail hour outside like we had hoped. The pavilion was gorgeous and cozy for our ceremony, and the ballroom was exquisite. We dropped all of our decor off ahead of time and the staff arranged everything for us and every detail was flawless. We still can’t believe how beautiful everything looked. We can’t recommend this venue enough; it’s truly a special place.

    The Perfect Venue

    The Joseph Ambler Inn is the perfect venue, all made more exceptional by Alli and the rest of the banquet/restaurant staff. From our first tour we couldn't wait to host our guests here. We loved that everyone could stay overnight onsite, and our guests appreciated being nearby for all the wedding events and the moments in between. The venue is beautiful, charming, and well laid out for not just a ceremony and reception, but all the other events as well (getting ready, after party, send-off breakfast).

    Thanks to the awesome planning process and the day-of coordinator, Jamie, our wedding was seamless from start to finish which kept our guests happy and entertained. As a bride and groom, we especially loved that we didn't have to lift a finger on our wedding day and could truly just enjoy the occasion. They were accommodating and flexible with every detail -not to mention a COVID postponement- and truly made our wedding dream come true!

Every time we are asked to create flowers for an event at JAI -we jump at the chance. The incredibly lovely venue, coupled with the extraordinary staff members-make it one of our very favorite "field trips". Every season shines on their beautiful "oasis" in the middle of Montgomeryville- you're close to everything but feel as though you have taken a step back in time- to a place where the simple pleasures can be savored and enjoyed. We at An Enchanted Florist at Skippack Village highly endorse the Joseph Ambler Inn as one of the premier venues in our area and look forward to our next wedding there :) Jill and the entire Enchanted Team in Skippack
