Discovering the Smithville Inn was, by far, the best part of celebrating our wedding. We wanted a rustic – but not isolated – location. Taking a referral from a friend, we did some research and paid the Smithville Inn a visit, and ultimately fell in love with everything the location had to offer! We live in northern New Jersey, and a major concern of ours was that our guests would be traveling quite a distance, but because Historic Smithville is full of shops and things to do, we knew this would ease our worries; Smithville literally has something for just about everybody, and our guests came not just to be there for us, but to make a great day out of their visit. Ashley and Kyle, our wedding and banquet coordinators, were beyond outstanding. They made our day come together and helped us every step of the way – without them, I don’t think we would have had such a great experience. The Smithville Inn’s quality of food and services were excellent, and the venue itself was fully decorated for the season – fitting the needs of our special day even moreso. The attention we received throughout the process was exceptional and we would absolutely recommend using The Smithville Inn to anyone looking to have a rustic wedding! You and your guests will enjoy the many opportunities to explore the town and you’ll surely have a fantastic day!Sent on 11/16/2016

Wedding Dreams Come True
Where do I even start with this beautiful place? Kyle & Justine are absolutely fantastic and very professional. They helped me during the planning process and made everything so simple. Justine made our rehearsal and ceremony move so smoothly. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place!Sent on 03/27/2019

Treated Like Friends
The absolute nicest location and we were so happy we chose it as our venue. Lines of communication open constantly throughout the year of planning and so happy to be able to work with Kyle and Justine. Delicious food, accommodating staff, and flexible management til the very end. So sad to be done. Cannot wait to visit again for another event, stop in for a meal, or pop by to say hello.Sent on 02/21/2019
It is always a pleasure to officiate a wedding at the Smithville Inn. It has been one of my favorite places to perform a wedding, always a class act!
