History
This one-of-a-kind inn was owned by Pulitzer prize winner, Paul Green. Now, it’s run by Beth and Tony Pendola, who have been married for over 25 years. They felt that they had to compromise on their wedding day, because they couldn't find a venue that let them do exactly what they wanted. Since then, they’ve vowed to be a location where couples can make their special day everything they dreamed it to be.

    Wedding 9/21/19

    Our wedding at Old Lystra Inn exceeded all expectations we could have possibly had for our big day. The owners- Tony and Beth are phenomenal! Even their sweet daughter offered to help a ton. Beth's right hand (wo)man was amazing, she seriously was like a day of coordinator. She communicated with me all day to ease any worries I might have had. She even fanned me to cool me off while we were doing first touch pictures, Ha! This venue is the most beautiful I've seen. The price point is right in line (almost slightly cheaper) with most venues in the area. However, you get SO MUCH with Old Lystra. For the rehearsal, they allowed us to drop everything off and opened their doors to us. I opted to pay a small fee to allow my 4 bridesmaids and myself to spend the night prior to the wedding day. It was the best decision ever! We woke up in the venue, showered, had a nice home cooked breakfast, and then made our way to the sun room for hair and makeup. ZERO stress! There were so many people behind the scenes working hard to make our big day perfect, it was so amazing to watch. Beth and Tony are so very accommodating! The venue speaks for itself, it is absolutely stunning! I would hands down recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding.

    Perfect space for the best day

    I could not have asked for venue owners better than Beth and Tony. They were so incredibly accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, and kind. They really went above and beyond what they needed to do in order to make us happy and at ease and they were so kind and generous to all of our family and guests as well.
    The house and gardens are so beautiful and it was the perfect place for our wedding. I would 100% recommend Old Lystra to anyone looking for an outdoor wedding venue.
