    The best venue any bride and groom could ask for!

    It was such an absolute pleasure to work with the wedding coordinator Kathy Daigle, owners Jon and Bruce, and the entire staff at The Old Saco Inn for our 1/29/2022 winter wonderland wedding. Although we had some challenges with a snowstorm that Saturday- Kathy, Bruce, Jon and their team made it the perfect day and were able to assist in whatever way that they could when things went upside down. Working with Kathy for the 6 months prior to the wedding was so helpful- she knew just what questions to ask us, was always available to answer any questions we had, and got back to us promptly. She made planning a wedding and getting married that day easy!!! The Inn did a wonderful job hosting our immediate family as guests; the breakfasts each morning at the inn were delicious, as was the rehearsal dinner food for our wedding party. The Inn rooms were warm and inviting, and they felt like being at home. Our wedding menu was easy to choose from as all of the food is just the best! Guests are still raving about how mouthwatering their entrees were at our wedding, how the bar and waiter service was perfect, and how the drinks were large and scrumptious. Kathy, Bruce, and Jon did an amazing job working with all of our wedding vendors as well to coordinate deliveries that day. Kathy and her assistant Laura even came to the First Congregational Church in Fryeburg where we were married (by the fabulous Pastor Violet- highly recommend her and the Church as well) to assist with rehearsal details and also the flow of our wedding day. Despite many changes that weekend due to the snowstorm and ongoing pandemic that we are still living in, Kathy, Bruce and Jon and their Old Saco Inn family of staff members made our family and guests feel at home, comfortable, safe, and made sure that we the bride and groom and all of our guests were cared for. They went above and beyond what we ever expected a wedding venue to do. When the florist didn't drop off all the bridal bouquets- Jon and Bruce stepped up to help make them from flower arrangement for the bridesmaids. When shuttle services for our guests and bridal party canceled on us last minute that day due to the snow, Kathy was able to find additional transportation as a replacement. We are so happy that we chose to stay and have our wedding reception at The Old Saco Inn and feel so blessed that they were all part of our wonderful, special, and truly unforgettable day. We started our journey with The Old Saco Inn in July 2021 when we walked into the barn and knew it was the place where we would start the rest of our lives together as husband and wife- we left January 30th, 2022 as friends who became like family with The Old Saco Inn owners and team. Seriously, if you are looking for a rustic, elegant and amazing wedding experience for the "perfect" (and I say in quotation marks as nothing goes perfectly and you MUST go with the flow and just remember to be happy) wedding day...please look no further... The Old Saco Inn is your venue!

    Fantastic dream wedding!

    My wedding was everything I wanted and more! Such a beautiful venue with everything you could want included. The owners and staff were so attentive to my fiancé and I and the details of everything we wanted and needed. They guided us the whole way. We stayed on the property with our families and bridal party and it was amazing to be onsite with everyone and everything so close. The food was delicious. The barn where the reception was is breath taking and stunning!!!! The entire property is unreal. My guests told me how over and over how much they enjoyed themselves and how impressed by everything they were. The Old Saco Inn was extremely reasonable in price for the amazing services they offer. I am still on cloud 9. We cannot thank everyone enough. I would recommend anyone have their wedding here! Or prom, banquet, celebration, etc!

    The Old Saco Inn's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind review. We had a blast with you all. Please don't be strangers and come back to see us! It was truly a pleasure to be a part of your big day!
