Absolutely the best!
We visited the Morningside Inn a year ago and chose it immediately for my daughter's wedding. One huge factor was that she could get married (indoors or outdoors) and have the wedding reception all in one place. My daughter was having a "Christmas" wedding and the venue was already completely decorated which was another huge factor. It was gorgeous! We had to change the wedding date due to Covid-19 and they could not have been more accomodating. We had Sharon as our coordinator and she was a true blessing. She paid special attention to detail and offered suggestions that made our day run much smoother. To say she was wonderful would be an understatement. The venue owner (Mrs. Cochran) is a remarkable woman who takes pride in her venue and is also available to answer questions or address concerns. I would choose this venue over and over again. They have staff available on the big day to take care of every need. They served my elderly in-laws at their table and helped get them where they needed to be. I highly recommend this venue and encourage anyone looking for a stress-free facility to choose Morningside. You will be ecstatic with the care and service you receive! 100% satisfied!Sent on 12/05/2020

Morningside Inn is a truly magical place to get married! The planning process was so easy and professional. We were assigned Melissa as our planner and day of coordinator, and she was great! She was one step ahead of me and my Type A mind. When COVID hit, everything was up in the air over the summer, but Melissa and the whole team at Morningside Inn was quick to respond to my questions and concerns. The day of went very smoothly, and Melissa was fantastic. She was like my wedding day fairy god mother! I can’t forget to mention THE FOOD! So many of our guests complimented us on the food choice and said how much they enjoyed it. If you’re looking for a perfect venue – look no further! Morningside Inn is a great choice, and a great value. Thank you again, Melissa & Morningside team – you made our COVID wedding truly magical.Sent on 11/03/2020

It is always a pleasure to work with Lauren and the staff at Morningside Inn. As a wedding officiant I've seen a lot of venues and worked with their coordinators. I appreciate the tremendous level of professionalism and expertise that Lauren provides as she and her staff facilitate the wedding, and reception details. I also appreciate her ability to work with the bride and groom to make their day one to remember. It is my privilege to endorse Lauren and Morningside Inn for your wedding and reception.

Morningside Inn is a lovely location for a wedding. I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding there 2 years ago. I took an HDR photo of the surrounding landscape and it is still one of my very favorite images.
Morningside Inn is one of the most beautiful and diverse locations for any event, especially weddings. An amazing staff who work there and very attentive to your needs. Beautiful scenic area great for portraits that will last years.
