Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding day with up to 200 attendees. There are indoor and outdoor options at this venue for a couple’s wedding. The patio is a lovely space for a ceremony during warmer seasons. Upon this courtyard patio of stone, couples will find unique backdrops for their ceremony, from a wooden set wall to a bright red door built into a house of dark stone. While the outdoor spaces offer plenty of quirks and privacy for a couples wedding day, they can also choose to have the ceremony in one of the many intimate rooms in the inn. The Nassau Inn has one large ballroom for couples, with a number of other smaller event rooms. The Prince William Ballroom, the largest space, features a wooden dance floor upon carpet, polished wooden molding around a white ceiling, golden chandeliers, subtle golden wallpaper, and other antique accents that add charm and romance to a couple’s wedding reception. The more petite Palmer Room is also available for couple’s wedding-related functions, from an indoor ceremony or an intimate reception to a bridal shower or engagement party. This versatile room has only the limits of a couple’s imagination.
Overnight accommodations are available at this exquisite inn. There is also a bridal suite, and a kitchen team ready to create a wedding cake specially for each couple that comes through the door.

Couples don’t need to worry about ordering outside alcohol for their wedding reception. The fully stocked bar has everything couples will need, from champagne for a toast to premium liquor options.

Guest rooms and suites are available in this venue, each with its own unique vintage charm. In total, there are 157 guest rooms and 31 suites at the Nassau Inn.

Suites feature separate sitting, and sometimes dining, areas for guests who choose to upgrade their stay.
The Nassau Inn began as the Nassau Tavern in 1756, when it was built by Judge Thomas Leonard. Following his passing, the tavern became an inn, and welcomed many a famous guest. This included the likes of Paul Revere, Robert Morris, and Thomas Paine, a guest who frequented the establishment. Through times of peace and war, surplus and hardship, the inn has stood its ground, making the facility the perfect location for couples to build their foundation of a new life.
