    Beautiful Venue

    The Old Saco Inn is the perfect location for a private, elegant and full service event. They provide setup and breakdown of everything, full service catering, a full bar, several ceremony locations and a breathtaking elegant barn for the reception. They offer several beautiful guest rooms on site, including breakfast and lunch the day of the wedding. We had a delicious rehearsal dinner the night prior and despite the chance of rain the day of the wedding, they were accommodating to my desire to have the ceremony outside. It was a bit of a drive for us (two hours each way), but I’m so thankful we chose this location.

    Parents of the Groom

    Excellent! The owners and staff very accommodating. The venue fabulous as the “barn” was recently built complete with chandeliers, rooms for the bridal party to get ready in, and plenty of room for 140 plus guests. The owners always around for questions or to see how to make the wedding what you want. A spacious venue with 9 rooms, all quaint and different, for wedding party or family. The wedding ceremony was by a small covered bridge just steps from the reception area in the barn. The grounds a mic of trees and grassy area for putting golf balls. I wish we had time to kayak on the river. We would recommend this wedding venue absolutely!!
