From the moment we booked the Stirling Guest Hotel to the weekend of the wedding, I couldn't be more thrilled with how perfectly everything went. This is an incredible venue, and if you are looking for an elegant, classy, yet somewhat different venue, I highly recommend the Stirling. Firstly, the entire staff is wonderful. TJ was so laid-back and stress-free, yet somehow had everything under control at all times. He was so friendly and so easy to deal with, and did everything in his power to make all of my requests a reality! We had a Saturday wedding, so we rented out all of the 16 rooms for our guests, which was really convenient as we didn't have to worry about transportation or an after party after the reception because everything was right there. We also had a wedding of 190, so we went with a tented reception on the lawn, which turned out to be a great decision, as we had wonderful weather and it was so nice to be outside. The tent was dressed up with the lighting and decorations that we used, so it really was an amazing night. People were free to come and go between the mansion and the tent throughout the reception to use the restrooms or hang out inside. As far as the food goes, it was absolutely delicious, and we are still getting comments from guests about how great the food tasted! The rooms themselves are so vintage and so antique- like nothing I've ever seen before and it really felt so much more special than a regular hotel room. This place is absolutely gorgeous, and every single thing ran so smoothly. Additionally, for the size and quality of our wedding, I know for a fact we got an exceptional value as well. There are very few places that can compare to the Stirling, and my only regret is that I wasted time looking at other venues first! We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding day. I highly highly recommend the Stirling Guest Hotel for your wedding, and can guarantee they will do a fantastic job!

Excellent Place for a Party
We had my son's wedding at the Stirling, and it was perfect. It was on Halloween and we had about 50 guests. TJ (the owner) was great and helped the couple plan an outdoor wedding there, followed by the reception inside. He tailored it to fit their personalities. We had many compliments on the staff, and the food was delicious.
Since it also has guest rooms to rent, we will be using it for future business events too!

TJ and his staff went above and beyond to make us feel at home and yet make the entire weekend a spectacular event! The venue is stunning and wonderful, the food is delicious and plentiful, and the people are simply marvelous! We simply can't say enough great things about the Stirling. Our guests haven't stopped raving either.

The Stirling Guest Hotel is an immaculate mansion venue that is perfect for any event. The owners are very communicative and quick to answer any questions you might have and even quicker to talk through ideas to make sure you get everything you want in your event. The mansion takes you to a beautifully historic mindset, the food (and Chef) give everything you want and more and once you see the rooms upstairs you will be in awe. Everything is just stunning and I love working with the Hotel!
Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
We have worked with the Stirling Guest Hotel for several years and highly recommend them as a beautiful setting to hold your wedding and reception!
