    Brookstown Inn is a Beautiful Wedding Venue!

    We were so glad we chose the Historic Brookstown Inn to be our wedding venue. Allison Watts, Director of Sales and Chef Erik were fantastic to work with. We had to essentially replan our wedding over again when COVID-19 hit. They were both flexible and tailored to whatever we wanted. Allison would help me talk through potential ideas to have a socially distanced wedding. Chef Erik’s food is delicious! You really cannot go wrong with any of his menu items. Day of, he even stepped up as our bartender because of a staffing issue. Not only is the staff amazing to work with, the venue itself is stunning. We utilized the courtyard areas for our wedding. We love the historic charm and exposed brick the Brookstown Inn offers. They have string lights in the courtyard areas that are beautiful and help create a romantic atmosphere. Best part is because they are an inn, you and all of your guest can stay there. We highly recommend choosing the Brookstown Inn for your wedding or event venue!

    Fall 2020 Wedding

    After visiting several different wedding venues in the Winston-Salem area, we took one step into the Brookstown Inn and realized our venue search was over! The historic inn is amazing and the staff wonderful! Allison has been our point of contact. She's easy to talk to and very helpful with all our questions. We're excited to be planning our Fall 2020 wedding at the Brookstown Inn!
