The inn is sure to entice couples back every year to celebrate their anniversaries and big life moments.
Facilities and Capacity
Ceremonies can be held outdoors under the pergola in the garden of the Roger Sherman Inn. Home to mature trees and picturesque blossoms, the terrace and gardens produce a charming backdrop. With a traditional pub-style aesthetic, the bar area is an ideal laidback setting to serve guests hors d’oeuvres for cocktail hour. Other inviting and welcoming dining spaces, including al fresco, are also available. Inside, an open plan allows for weddings up to 175 seated guests. A wedding event of this size may make use of the bar and outdoor areas with fully staffed services. The dining rooms are notable for their timeless and elegant furnishings, accompanied by wood flooring and ceiling-height windows. For an exclusive wedding retreat experience, couples and their loved ones are welcome to book a stay in one of the inn’s 15 guest rooms. Couples can celebrate their wedding surrounded by the luxury of a boutique hotel that boasts all of the comforts of home.
The Roger Sherman Inn has packages to satisfy every wedding that offer day-of coordination and full-service event management. The inn can also provide on-site catering from a range of menus inspired by New England classics. Couples can select dishes served with locally produced seasonal ingredients such as vegetables, oysters, filet mignon, and Maine lobster. This exquisite fine dining is available plated or in a family-style format with house wines served throughout the meal by a butler. Couples have the option between a limited-open or cash bar from the full bar service present. To ensure that you can make the most out of your wedding day, the event team welcomes your choice of outside vendors.
