Beautiful Location and Venue
The Cotton Gin Inn is gorgeous and the grounds are so well taken care of by Cheryl. It has the upscale southern charm we were looking for for our wedding and the price was very reasonable. The rooms are stunning and the breakfast is delicious if you choose to stay at the inn. Cheryl also provides snacks and bubbly the day of when you are getting ready. There are a handful of inns and hotels within a 10 minute drive for your guests and it's very close to downtown Edenton.Sent on 01/10/2021
My main thing to call out to future brides is that this is strictly a location, and only an outdoor location. You'll definitely want a tent either way to shade from the sun or rain, there's not a lot of room for storage, and you'll have to plan ahead on having someone outside of the inn's staff to help manage vendors the day of. All things that can be organized but worth calling out from experience!
