We were beyond impressed by the Shawnee Inn and the wedding coordinator, Tabitha. The planning process was professional and easy. Our vision for the day was made possible by Tabitha's ability to turn our thoughts into reality. On the day of our wedding, all of the staff members at Shawnee were responsive to both our and our guests' needs. Even though it rained during our wedding, the day went flawlessly as everyone already knew what to do in the case of rain. We highly recommend Shawnee as a wedding venue.Sent on 11/17/2019

Do yourself the favor
I always dreamed of having a picture-perfect wedding in the mountains. However, I quickly realized how difficult that would be; turns out mountain venues often lack suitable lodging, and we had 160 guests attending our wedding all from out of town. Luckily, I found Shawnee Inn while looking for a banquet hall for another event, and I am so lucky that it proved to be everything I was looking for and more.Sent on 02/17/2020
My immediate family visited in summer to take a tour and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. We stayed overnight in one of their houses and had an amazing time: fireflies danced around the grounds, the main inn was warm and welcoming with that beautiful old-world charm, and there was so much to do on the property (nightly S’mores, hiking tours, whitewater rafting, as well as plenty of locations with benches and rocking chairs to just relax and enjoy the peace of nature). We knew instantly we need to make Shawnee Inn our home base for the wedding weekend.
I don’t think you can pick the wrong season to have your wedding here. We ended up having it in winter and the property was still gorgeous. Our guests raved about the location and many promised to visit again in the future for family trips. Tabitha and her team were incredibly accommodating. We needed a lot of rooms and a lot of space for several dinners, lunches, and a large Hindu ceremony. Tabitha never hesitated to give us what we needed or wanted. We felt incredibly pampered and attended to, and everything about the wedding went off without a hitch.
The rooms are charming with that cozy feel. My bridal suite was a dream with a big Jacuzzi tub and ample space for all my outfits and accessories. Every room I visited was inviting and comfortable for our guests; it’s no wonder so many people want to come out and visit again!
Every staff member was incredibly kind and attentive. I often found myself chatting with them in the hallways as they were always eager to get to know me and congratulate me on the big day. I can’t emphasize enough how friendly everyone was, and that kindness was incredibly appreciative on what can be a very stressful day! Hindu ceremonies are large affairs, and although Shawnee Inn had never hosted a Hindu ceremony before ours, I can tell you that everything went so smoothly you would have thought that had hosted tons! They have ample space for all of the rituals and traditions; I’m confident they can handle any type of wedding thrown their way.
Do yourself the favor of having your wedding at Shawnee. I left at the end of the weekend so thankful for everything they had done, for them making my wedding so special and memorable. I will have nothing but the fondest memories for the temporary home away from home, that so lovingly housed all of my friends and families, and that gave me such a beautiful wedding day.

Wedding at Shawnee Inn
Our wedding was June 15th and we held it in the Courtyard off the Delaware Room of Shawnee Inn. It was a wonderful day and we had our perfect "I Do" BBQ. Everyone said the ceremony and party was beautiful and the food was wonderful! A great big thanks goes out to Tabitha and Jasmine and all the staff that helped us on that day. Could not ask for a more perfect setting! Thanks You goes out to the Staff!Sent on 07/03/2019
The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort's reply:Thank you Marjorie! It was a beautiful day and you were a beautiful bride! I'm so glad the weather held out for you and you got the wedding day you dreamed of!
Its always a pleasure to work at the Shawnee Inn. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is always a delight. You will find it to be an excellent location for your ceremony alongside the river with scenic views for wonderful pictures. I highly recommend you consider Shawnee for your wedding or next special occasion.
This is a beautiful location with great facilities, grounds and rooms. I have not performed a wedding here, as of yet, but based on my experience of the Inn at the past (and what I've heard from others) I would definitely put it at the top of your list of places to consider in the Poconos. I look forward to officiating there in the near future!
Simone and the staff at the AMAZING Shawnee Inn are wonderful to work with. Their attention to detail is second to none, and the grounds and ballrooms are beautiful. We are always excited to work with the team at Shawnee, and brides and grooms have always loved the way that their wedding is coordinated to perfection! First class venue and staff!
