My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Owenego in June and it was more amazing than we ever could have imagined! Our guests could not stop telling us how stunning the venue was and how delicious all of the food was. The staff was extremely available, knowledgeable, and helpful throughout our entire wedding planning process and wedding day. I felt so comfortable and relaxed that they had everything we wanted and needed under control. Our wedding ran so smoothly and was exactly what we wanted. You cannot beat the amazing scenery at this venue! On top of this, food is plentiful and delicious and the staff is extremely good at what they do. I highly recommend the Owenego and can't thank them enough for making our day so unforgettable!Sent on 08/03/2019

The owenego - a hidden gem!
John and all staff at the Owenego felt like family by the time my wedding was over. The Owenego is a hidden gem - beauitful views make for great picutres. The raw bar and cocktail hour was absolutely delicious. John was always very honest and flexible with us and even suggested ways we could save money. No hidden fees. What made us most happy was how happy our guests were. The staff at Owenego made everyone feel so welcome and Lynn did such a great job making sure we stuck to our timeline. Between the beautiful views and the beautiful staff - good vibes were everywhere the night of our wedding!Sent on 06/17/2019

Owenego is a hidden gem! We could not be more grateful to John & the entire staff who were so patient and kind throughout the entire process. Everyone is so relaxed and flexible to accommodate our requests, whether it was bringing in rentals, changing the house wines, and beyond. The venue is so beautiful, and Reid & I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Everyone loved it and raved about the food. Though they don't do food tastings, rest assured that everyone will be well-fed with great portions! We love you Owenego & are so grateful!!Sent on 07/02/2018
