The most magical day
We will never forget our wedding at the old lantern. We had 200 guests and Julie planned our wedding to a T and Lisa executes flawlessly. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.Sent on 09/18/2019

Everything we wanted and more
The Old Lantern Inn was the perfect wedding venue for us. We were looking for a rustic wedding venue within 30 minutes of Burlington and after seeing the Old Lantern Inn and hearing about everything included in their wedding package, we knew we found the perfect spot for our wedding. Our guests made good use of the space available, playing lawn games outside, using the pool and fooseball table in the bar area, and of course occupying the dance floor. The stars were also spectacular! It was so easy to plan our event because the Old Lantern staff took care of almost everything for us, including centerpieces, a box for cards, the cake, and of course the food and bar. I was so happy to find a place with tasteful decor that would prevent me from buying one time use items. The vendors recommended by the Old Lantern were all great as well, particularly Mark, our DJ from Top Hat Entertainment. We had the perfect day and highly recommend Old Lantern!Sent on 09/15/2019

I just celebrated my wedding here and I could not be happier with how wonderful it was. Julie and Lisa were amazing to work with, and the venue is stunning and cozy. They go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and organized during the planning process and then at home the day of. The food was also exceptional! We got so many compliments for how well things were run. If you are looking to throw a fun party in Vermont, this is the place. We also stayed at the Inn and it was awesome. Clean with great breakfast in the morning and Lisa is an amazing host! Highly recommend!Sent on 08/31/2019
