Facilities and Capacity

The largest event space at The Bernards Inn is the outstanding Fenwick Ballroom. Featuring large windows, a bar, lavish furnishings, and a dramatic skyline, this 2,300 square foot room makes for large ceremonies and extravagant receptions. Ceremonies in this room can take place under the incredible skylight as The Garden State’s sunshine rains down upon you and your partner. The Fenwick Ballroom can be arranged to include seated guests, a dance floor, and live entertainment while accommodating up to 230 guests. Alternatively, this ballroom can be split into two separate event areas for smaller, more quaint festivities. The Fenwick B room includes the skyline as well as the bar and can host up to 160 in a cocktail reception layout. Meanwhile, the Fenwick B room is slightly smaller in size and holds celebrations of up to 55 people in a similar layout. Other fabulous rooms include the Silver Vault and Wine Pantry. These two rooms can be opened up and used together or used as two separate rooms. The Silver Vault, with its exposed brick walls, wooden beamed ceilings, and overhanging chandeliers, oozes elegant refinement in the utmost fashion. Used on its own, this space makes for great banquets and can hold up to 75 guests. The equally impressive Winery Pantry features stoned walls and offers a quaint stage area for live entertainment. When used in accordance with the Silver Vault, this area makes for a tranquil dance floor area while dining is held in the adjoining vault.
