About

Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast is a historic waterfront wedding venue in Palmetto, Florida since 2009. We are located on the West-Coast of Florida between St. Petersburg & Sarasota. Our closest beach is Anna Maria Island which is approximately 1/2 hour drive from Palmetto.

Our venue hosts weddings up to 150 guests mostly outdoors. We typically host the ceremony in the front garden under the historic live oak overlooking the Manatee River followed by a reception in the back courtyard. The venue offers ceremony chairs, chairs & tables for the reception, extra buffet tables, cocktail tables, indoor reception room, outdoor living room with fire place, covered porch, catering station, etc...

The Bed & Breakfast offers 6 guest rooms so we can accommodate 12 guests. For additional accommodations we work with 3 different hotels nearby which are located in Bradenton. A full European style breakfast is included in an overnight stay. The B&B stays entirely private during the whole weekend.

We have different wedding packages to offer to our couples. Our most popular package is called the Day of Package. This package only includes the venue for the day no overnight stay. In case you would like to stay overnight we do offer 3 other packages with overnight stays. Discount is offered for weekdays weddings (Monday through Thursday or on a Sunday afternoon).

Our venue does not offer food. For every event we host we work with different caterers from the area. A list of recommended caterers is available upon request. We also allow to bring in your own alchohol on the premises.

Tours are available during the week Monday through Thursday or on a Sunday afternoon by appointment only.

100000 stars!!!

My husband and I recently got married at the Palmetto Riverside Bed and Breakfast on 12/10/2022. It was honestly an experience better than we could have ever imagined and/or dreamed of!!! Wim and Mieke are the BEST hosts and made our wedding run as smoothly and as seamlessly as possible. We opted for the entire weekend package - staying Friday and Saturday night - with our wedding ceremony and reception taking place on Saturday. The venue is BEAUTIFUL and the entire time we felt like we were right at home. I'd recommend this venue to anyone getting married. Thank you thank you thank you Wim and Mieke for EVERYTHING! We can't wait to celebrate future anniversaries with you both.

Amazing experience!!!!!

I cannot say enough good things about The Palmetto Riverside Bed & Breakfast and the owners Mieke and Wim. They are honestly the sweetest and most professional people. They made us feel so special from the start of our wedding journey up until the very last second. We had an intimate wedding of 20 people and it was the best day we've ever had. I highly recommend staying overnight and having breakfast as well. Both the dinner and breakfast had the best food we've had, ever. SO delicious and so many amazing options. It's hard to please everyone, but every single one of our guests was so happy with their meals that they were already talking about visiting the B&B in the future for more. Their attention to detail is UNMATCHED. They are on top of everything and made me, my groom, and our families feel so at ease and stress-free the entire time. I love the fact that we can go back to have dinner and stay overnight to relive the best memories. I HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone getting married, especially if you're looking for an option for an intimate wedding where you want everyone to feel like family. Truly a 5-star experience, I'd give 1,000 stars if I could!

Five Stars!!!

My husband and I got married at the B&B on Feb 29, 2020 and it was perfect! Wim & Mieke were amazing. Their attention to detail from the moment we arrived on Fri to the moment we left on Sunday was above and beyond. They made our wedding weekend so memorable we couldn't have been any happier. Beautiful venue, amazing views, their hospitality was of a 5 star resort. We highly recommend them for your next event.

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!
