Pete and Anne 10/29/2023.

From start to finish Donna, Nancy and Martha walked us through every detail and left nothing to chance. They were professional, yet very personable to the familial areas that made our day meaningful and beautiful. They become an extension to a memorable day.

Rustic, charming and unforgettable!!

Billy and I got married 10/15/23. The Salem Cross Inn speaks for itself. Old, rustic, charming and cozy. The grounds are absolutely beautiful! The barn is breathtaking. We cannot put into words how amazing the staff is. From the moment we walked in for the first time, peeked into the barn and then met Donna, we knew it was perfect. She was so welcoming, great to work with and made everything so easy for us. The food is amazing and from scratch. Our wedding guests were truly blown away and cannot stop talking about it. We are so thankful to have our wedding here at this amazing, historical venue. We will be returning often to enjoy a wonderful meal along with the taking in the scenery. Jennifer and Billy
