History
In 1917, the farm that is now Mendenhall Inn was owned by Pierre DuPont. He also purchased the surrounding properties. Soon after, the Millhous Brothers bought the farm and turned it into a feed store. The barn was turned into a restaurant in 1968, then purchased by its current owners in 1982. In 1990, a 70-room hotel was added by the Hionis family. The Grand Ballroom was built in 1994, while the original Gold Ballroom was renovated in 2006.

Mendenhall Inn is 32 minutes from downtown Philadelphia and Philadelphia International Airport. It is 60 minutes from Lancaster, 60 minutes from Reading and 21 minutes from Wilmington, Delaware.

    The absolute best!!!!

    Mendenhall Inn went above and beyond to make our wedding day everything we could’ve dreamed of and more! We received so many compliments on how fantastic the food was and how beautiful the Gold ballroom looked. Anytime I had questions or needed to change something, Becky and Gianna were on top of it and always responded quickly and professionally! I’ve also attended many weddings at this venue and they have never disappointed! Choosing The Mendenhall Inn for our reception was one of the best decisions we made! We couldn’t have been happier!

    Exceptional Service

    I could not be happier with our choice for a wedding venue. Mendenhall met my extremely high expectations! I first started working with Becky but she moved to a different position at the company and the transition to Dottie was seamless. I met with Dottie to discuss everything that I had previously discussed with Becky and Dottie did not miss a beat. She understood exactly what I wanted in terms of how I wanted the venue to look and she made sure I was 100% satisfied. Our personal server was amazing - I was never without a drink in my hand! The hotel staff was friendly and our hotel room was beautiful. Our guests raved about the food and service! My wedding was exactly what I pictured and what I wanted and I am so thankful to Mendenhall for that. As a tip, we took our wedding pictures at Longwood Gardens, and even in March before everything bloomed, it was so beautiful and I know my pictures will be amazing! I hIGHLY recommend that you book your event at Mendenhall!

    As a wedding photographer, the Mendenhall Inn is one of my favorite venues. Both banquet rooms also have separate rooms for cocktails/ceremonies. I adore the inclosed outdoor courtyard. The grounds are very good for photos, especially the train tracks!
