The perfect place for our wedding.
The Old Saco Inn was the perfect location for our December wedding, with the grounds and buildings already tastefully decorated for the holidays. Bruce and Jon made planning our ceremony and reception fun and easy. The food was excellent, with rave reviews from our guests. Their staff was on top of everything. We spent our wedding night in one of the rooms; cozy and inviting after our busy day. We've already booked a stay for our first anniversary, and plan on celebrating many more to come there.Sent on 10/26/2019

A beautiful Barn
We were honored and thrilled to be the first wedding in this amazing venue in October 2019.
Our wedding was on the smaller side with 55 guests and even though the barn can accommodate a much larger event everything was just as I pictured and the barn never felt overwhelming to us or our guests, there is a warm elegance to the space.
The barn is breathtaking when you arrive and when my husband and I walked we found everything to be perfect all the way around.
The table settings were just as I had planed with Jon and the food was great. All the guests commented on how much the enjoyed dinner and the staff was very attentive and took great care of all our needs through out the evening .
Everything went off with out an issue and working with Jon was great.
He offered so many ideas as we planned to make my vision for my reception just what I imagined.
It was a perfect day and my family and friends along with myself and new husband enjoyed a beautiful reception .
We can’t say thank you enough to Jon and Bruce for their help in planing this amazing day and for bringing this gorgeous barn to us in Fryeburg Maine .Sent on 11/19/2019
The Old Saco Inn's reply:Thank you for the great review. It was an awesome day! We were so happy to have you as our first guest in the new Barn. The day couldn't have been more perfect. I'm so happy for the both of you!
