10/10 - You won't regret the Lucerne Inn!

I simply cannot say enough positive things about this venue. The entire process from staff to finish was phenomenal. The owners of the Inn are as accommodating as possible and were so sweet to work with on the day of the event. Chelsey, the wedding coordinator for the Inn is as fabulous as it gets. She is prompt, professional and has a calming presence which helps many brides. We had a unexpected thunderstorm come through 15 min before our ceremony and the whole staff worked with us just to push everything back 30 min to allow us to have the outdoor ceremony of our dreams. We were so incredibly impressed with their flexibility and accommodations. Our guests raved about the food, the quality of the staff and the gorgeous views this venue offers. The whole weekend was flawless from start to finish. Would get married here 10x over.

Looking for a Wedding Venue? Look NO Further!

We chose The Lucerne Inn for our daughter’s wedding venue... we had the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, wedding, reception, and a breakfast the next day all at The Lucerne Inn. The entire experience was superb!! I had heard from a number of locals how marvelous the food was...and it was absolutely delicious!! The selections available for the meals, including appetizers after the wedding while family was taking pictures, was superb! And we hired Chelsey as the Wedding Coordinator and she made the entire experience perfect. We seriously cannot think of one thing that would have made the weekend better. Thank you, Lucerne Inn!!
