About The Big Tree Inn

Beautiful, charming & historic setting just off I390 and just 35 minutes from Rochester. The Big Tree Inn is the perfect place to hold your meeting, banquet or special event. We invite you to tour our unique location that combines history and charm with outstanding service and modern amenities. We can accommodate small, intimate parties in one of our private dining rooms or larger gatherings up to 175 people in our Event Center.

Originally opened in 1886, the Big Tree Inn reflects much of the elegance and ornate detailing of the period. The Event Center, while a new addition to the building, maintains the charm and intimate feeling of the main building. Three unique rooms make up the event center and provide ample options for seating, a dance floor, DJ booth, cake table, bar and more.

Our main ballroom is at the epicenter of our Event Center. Combining a historic ambiance with a modern flair, the main ballroom can hold up to 175 of your closest family and friends. This space overlooks our beautiful gardens and features large sliding doors that open up to two additional spaces: our Burgundy Room, which can accommodate up to 48 guests, and our Garden Room, which can accommodate up to 17 guests. Whether you choose one, two, or all three of the rooms in our Event Center, it is the perfect space to accommodate you and your loved ones on your special day.

Our beautiful garden provides the ideal setting for a private outdoor wedding ceremony for up to 75 guests. Share your vows and “I do’s” underneath a beautiful arbor enveloped by ivory. Our outdoor space comfortably seats 30 or provides enough standing space for 75 guests.

The Big Tree Inn offers an extensive and beautiful catering menu, featuring a wide array of dishes drawing on the culinary traditions of the Finger Lakes and the Genesee Valley. We source fresh, local ingredients to produce a ‘farm-to-table’ cuisine that will satisfy traditional and modern sensibilities alike. Our in-house chef will be happy to work with you to create a signature menu that satisfies your taste.

The Big Tree Inn is the perfect place to hold your special event. The photo opportunities are endless with the gardens, grand staircase, and front parlor. Afterward, your guests are invited inside for dinner and dancing. In a building full of history, we invite you to create your own.

    We could not have picked a better place to have our wedding reception. Not only is the Big Tree Inn beautiful, but the staff was wonderful to work with, the food was excellent, and their attention to detail was great to the very end. We stayed upstairs, and our room was amazing, comfortable, clean, and gorgeously decorated. We felt "at home" at the Big Tree. Our out-of-town guests that stayed upstairs in the rooms were pleasantly surprised at the wonderfully appointed rooms, the continental breakfast in the morning, and the nice location of the Inn.

    The management of the Big Tree Inn was very accommodating to all our needs, and answered all our questions thoroughly. They even were sensitive to our guests' needs to vegetarian meals and kids meals.

    The staff for our event were wonderful and very helpful. We had a great time at the venue and the event planners made sure we had everything planned the way we wanted. We got more than we expected. Great wine and food choices too. I found that when I let the staff use their judgment, they made great decisions, a little controlling, but only for things that I was indifferent about anyway.

    My husband and I are completely satisfied with our reception at The Big Tree Inn. The general manager, Daniel Mullin, was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout the planning process. The staff were friendly, polite and very hardworking for both the day of the reception and breakfast the following morning. We had many guests rave about the food, especially the filet mignon (it was delicious!) In out eyes the evening was flawless and we very happily recommend The Big Tree to others looking for an event venue.

    That being said, a couple of my guest did have some confusion with reservations/billing with the inn but this was quickly resolved after being addressed.
