    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!

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.
