    The Perfect Venue

    I don’t think I’ll be able to do an accurate job of describing just how wonderful the Inn and Laura Sterritt are. Laura helped us work through all the details of pricing and menus and room blocks with ease. She made everything feel so easy! And when the Coronavirus pandemic hit and changed all our plans, the Inn was incredibly flexible and accommodating. We were able to bump our reception to next year and still use the outdoor space for our ceremony this year when some of the state gathering restrictions lightened. Laura was even kind enough to help us out with our makeshift ceremony music system since we moved our DJ contract to next year. Our wedding didn’t go as planned due to the pandemic, but Laura and the Inn still made everything so special for us. They were a true pleasure to work with, and we’re so looking forward to our reception with them next year!

    Lovely Venue, Dedicated Staff, Delicious Food & Cocktail, Flexible Kitchen

    Almost 2 weeks removed from the wedding and starting to adjust to life again, there is a lot to reflect upon with the Exeter Inn and it's overflowing with positivity! We were married in mid-September with a ceremony across the street at St. Michael's Parish with the cocktail hour and reception immediately following the Exeter Inn. From Day 1, Laura (Director of Sales and Catering) was informative, attentive to our requests and expectations, and communicated super well. She kept us informed about the room block, guest registration, timing of the tasting, etc. The day of, she made sure we were fed, had a drink if we needed one, and checked on us. It was wonderful to have her and the team at the Exeter Inn executing our vision and making our day special. The chef was wonderful during the tasting and expressed his passion for fresh, local, seasonal foods and he and his team showcased what mid-September had to offer! The flavors were as expected - delicious - and the accommodations for guest with food allergies, sensitivities, and picky eating habits were beyond expectation. Guests with those needs were incredibly happy with their meals! The packages through the Inn also integrate the cake. And that experience was super easy to execute because the bakery was superb and we did not have to shop around after trying the cake samples and knowing the day of would be set!

    For the other details, the accommodations, Inn staff, and restaurant were also wonderful. The package we chose included a suite for the night of the wedding and the special touches across the Inn are appreciated (cookies in your room, coffee in the lobby, helpful staff at the desk, etc.).

    The wedding venue was able to accommodate an ever-growing list of guests with different sized tables being rented. With 106 guests, the space was able to seat everyone for dinner and host those interested in dancing on the separate/adjacent dance floor. The uniqueness of the space allowed those not interested in dancing to have a quieter space to connect. The bar's location off the dance floor was very convenient as well.

    Overall: if you want a wedding venue that has it all in one place, attentive staff, delicious and flexible food, and space for approximately 100 people, I cannot say enough positive about the Exeter Inn.

    Great Stay and Experience

    When I booked Zorvino Vineyards as my wedding venue I was in need of a hotel nearby and found the Exeter Inn. We had a lot of out of town guests and we were able to book the entire hotel. During planning we decided to have our rehearsal dinner at the Exeter Inn as well. During the whole planning process Laura was an absolute joy to work with. She was always quick to respond, answer all my crazy questions and over a wonderful person. The hotel was so accommodating even with the crowd that we brought in. The rehearsal dinner was wonderful (we opted for the buffet) which was very good. Everyone also raved about the breakfast at the Epoch Bar. We had one issue with one of our rooms which was handled quickly so no real issue. All of our guests fell in love with the quaint hotel and the stunning courtyard. I would absolutely recommend staying at and working with the Exeter Inn.

The Exeter Inn, has a wonderful staff on hand to fill your every need. As a fellow wedding vendor, they were extremely accommodating, and worked with me to help make a wedding day, beautiful, fun, and memorable. The architecture of the Inn makes it a fantastic venue for up-lighting. The columns, archways, huge windows, and beautiful entryways makes the Exeter Inn a beautiful place to host your wedding.
