Complete with reflecting pools and rose gardens, the majestic site serves as the perfect backdrop for knot-tying celebrations. Both warm and welcoming, The Ashley Inn is the optimal choice for starting your journey as one!

Facilities and Capacity
Nestled in the heart of the bluegrass, The Ashley Inn comfortably seats up to 400 of your closest friends and family. Couples have the option of hosting their ceremony and/or reception in the front of our historic house, surrounded by 200-year-old trees, in the renovated Horse Barn, Carriage House, or under a weeping willow at a pond-side location. Smaller events and dinners are often held on the venue’s old-world patio under a canopy of trees and lights surrounding a reflecting pond and fountain.

History
A successful part of the Kentucky wedding industry since 2007, our history dates back to 1840. Built by a southern family whose son-in-law marched by the estate on his way to fight in the Civil War, the historic venue served as both a dairy and a school before becoming The Meadow Lake Equestrian Center, the venue’s on-site, multi-discipline, full-service equestrian facility. Beautifully restored and tastefully decorated, The Ashley Inn is the perfect choice for romance and nostalgia.

The Best Weekend Ever

Where do I even begin? I am obsessed with the Ashley Inn, and my entire wedding weekend that was spent there. I’ve never had a wedding before 😆, but the entire time I just kept thinking, “is it supposed to be this easy?!” I mean everything was absolutely gorgeous, every vendor was amazing, and Heidi topped off our perfect weekend and was the best coordinator ever! Truly made my day SO smooth and enjoyable! It was so special and convenient to be able to have the Inn for the entire weekend, and wake up to breakfast with my favorite people. If I could rewind and do it 100x over I would. If you are thinking of having your wedding here, don’t think, just do it! No regrets and I hope every bride and future couple have the best experience we did, because of Heidi and the Ashley Inn!

Chelsea & Tyler's Wedding

The weekend of October 2, 2021, my daughter and her, now husband, had their wedding at The Ashley Inn at Meadow Lake Farm. We chose the weekend package and it was absolutely amazing! The entire farm is beautiful! The Inn is so elegant and the food that was prepared for us on Saturday morning for breakfast was magnificent! The ceremony was held outside on the side lawn with the arbor and the horses in the background absolutely made it perfect! The carriage house is the perfect spot for the reception... everything is like a fairytale! The wedding coordinator, Heidi is wonderful! She is so accommodating and she works her absolute hardest to ensure everything runs seemlessly...We could not have done it without her knowledge and experience! Thank you Heidi and The Ashley Inn for the perfect wedding weekend for Chelsea and Tyler...and for all of the rest of us!

Best Wedding Venue in Kentucky

My husband and I were sold on The Ashley Inn after having toured the venue with Heidi back in September. I had already been a bridesmaid here back in 2015, but it was even more magical than I remembered. We booked the Complete Weekend package and were able to have both of our immediate families stay on the property for the different events. I HIGHLY recommend that as it made the entire weekend feel more intimate. Additionally, the Inn in remarkably beautiful and historic and was definitely one of the many highlights from that weekend.

We opted to have our rehearsal and dinner on site and had The Ashley Inn cater the meal- FANTASTIC. It was laid-back, cozy, and a fun time for all.

On the wedding day all the ladies met at the venue for hair, makeup, and prep while they guys traveled to a nearby Airbnb. I never felt cramped or rushed or stressed. Heidi and her crew took care of the day-of details while I soaked in a bubble bath listening to Etta James. :)

Despite the weather taking a turn for the unexpected, Heidi and the venue accomodated everything with precision and as the bride, I hardly worried about the change of plans. (Originally it was supposed to be 88F/sunny and ended up being 56F/overcast)

We still had our ceremony on the front lawn, dinner under the pavilion, and dancing in the barn. Fortunately, the cooler weather made the dance party so much more comfortable and our pictures are to die for.

This venue offers: accommodations, vendors of your choosing, chairs & tables included, set-up/tear-down, a warehouse of rentals for decoration, catering options for events, catering options for breakfast/day-of, ability to bring your own alcohol, parking attendants, and so much more!!

I'll recommend booking The Ashley Inn forever! XOXO
