Wim and Mika exceeded our expectations!
We couldn't have been more pleased to have had the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast for our daughters wedding venue this weekend. Many venues look better in photos than in real life. Not so at this amazing location. The waterfront views were an incredible backdrop for our ceremony. And the reception area has such an elegant and inviting ambiance.From the first phone call to saying goodbye Wim and Mika were warm, professional and so accomadating! Truly the nicest wedding venue in the Sarasota area!Sent on 01/07/2020

Excellent Wedding Venue
Where do I even begin? Wim and Meike were nothing short of amazing through our wedding planning! We were thrown a curve ball with the weather on Saturday, but they jumped right in and helped work everything out! They were quick to respond to any messages, quick to jump in and help and we never had to worry about anything. They were very hospitable to us and to our guests! We couldn’t have asked for any better! There’s no where else we would have wanted to get married!Sent on 01/12/2020

I can't put into words how amazing this Bed and Breakfast is. Wim and Meike are hands down the nicest, most accommodating hosts I have ever met, and the breakfast they made us in the morning was incredible! The house is stunning and the atmosphere is so calming. I could not have picked a better place to have our wedding and I am so happy I will have these memories forever!
