The Inn at Oneonta is a historic location in Melbourne, Kentucky that is perfect for a gorgeous river-view wedding! Be our guest and celebrate your special event surrounded in elegance and divine, natural beauty.
This amazing treasure has truly withstood the test of time and element. Once a part of a small river town, this historic home was the only structure that defied the 1937 flood. The town never rebuilt, but this home remained for the packet boat and stagecoach travelers in the area. David Hosea and his family restored this 3-story brick mansion and has elegantly appointed it throughout with wonderful artwork depicting its heritage on the Ohio River. Also present are stunning antiques from around the world that compliment the original wood floors and punched tin 20 foot high ceilings.
Sitting on almost 26 acres, there are so many options to enjoy at Oneonta. Explore the many walking trails, go fishing in the stocked onsite lake, walk down the rock stairway to sit and watch as the Mississippi Queen paddles by playing its beautiful calliope music, play pool or arcade games in the custom-built arcade which resembles an old-fashioned train station...or marry your one-and-only in our chapel or with a serene riverside setting in our gazebo. The Inn also has a stunning cathedral wedding tent complete with bandstand and hi-tech lighting just waiting to welcome up to 300 guests to dance the night away!
This stunning riverside retreat feels like you are thousands of miles away from home, yet it's just 20 minutes from Cincinnati and Newport on the Levee.

Its hard to even write this review because there aren’t enough words to describe how incredible the staff and owners are at the Inn at Oneonta. Our wedding was truly the most magical day and that was in great part because it took place at the Inn at Oneonta. I was incredibly nervous about how the day of the wedding would turn out without a wedding planner or day of coordinator, but Michelle, Travis, and their whole team were so on top of every detail and made sure the whole day went exactly to plan without myself or the groom having to worry about a single thing. Everything from the set-up, to the food, to the drinks, to every-single-detail was absolute perfection. I say all of this even with our outdoor wedding taking place on a day where it poured rain. They had an amazing rain back up plan that ended up being just as magical as the original outdoor ceremony. Travis and Michelle are also so helpful during the entire planning process. They are both so knowledgeable about all wedding details and were able to give myself and the groom such good advice. I left every phone call and meeting with them feeling more and more confident about our wedding day being perfect. I would honestly recommend that every person in Cincinnati get married at the Inn at Oneonta. You will not find better, more honest, trustworthy, kind, and hardworking people to help you make your wedding dreams come true.

Breathtaking, No Worries, Superb, Hardworking, Very Experienced
I put this review off because it was just too long, but I cannot help it. I am totally being honest and speaking from my heart and experience.
It was such an unforgettable weekend. The Venue is beyond beautiful and unique. It brings you back in time. A fairytale come true. From the rehearsal dinner, casual laid back Pig Roast at it's best, to a very elegant absolutely phenominal wedding reception. Meeting the guest with wine and champaign, hor d'oeuvres, cocktails to superb salmon, filet and all the trimmings.
Travis & Michelle I cannot brag enough about. Their crew all worked together with smiles and very sufficient.
Honestly, 5 stars is not enough. The Venue was immaculate, clean, beautiful and in good taste. They went above and beyond to make our weekend stay running smoothly, enjoyable and fun. Our guest are still raving about it. I heard it many times that this was the Best Wedding by far and they will never forget it.
It was hard to say goodbye, they were like family.
I have the utmost respect for them. They work so hard and it shows. Travis and Michelle really love their place and they love what they do. Their passion shows and they wear their heart on their sleeves...
Travis, Michelle and crew was absolutely incredible. They made my Son and His New Bride Dream Come True 💘

I could not have been happier with my entire experience from the moment I toured this venue to the night of my wedding. Michelle answered every question, big or small in such a timely manner. Travis made the most delicious meal that was customized around my vision. The little details that they nailed blew me away, like surprising me with a serving of asparagus at dinner, since my husband wasn't crazy about serving them to everyone. He preferred the grilled garden vegetables! They both handled every detail with such professionalism and kindness and were at my reception from beginning to end. The parking crew, bartenders and severs were equally amazing. They worked behind the scenes to make everything run so smoothly. The way that the parking staff treated my grandfather and carted him around several times, because he liked chatting with the young man driving the golf cart:) They took my vision and made it come to life! I appreciated their honesty and guidance through the entire planning process. This space is the most scenic and captivating for such a special celebration, and I cannot imagine having my wedding day anywhere else. It’s clear that Travis, Michelle and their team go above and beyond and I appreciated them making my day stress free and certainly memorable!
