We're in love with the Shawnee Inn
I can not begin to express how wonderful our wedding was at the Shawnee Inn.Sent on 05/13/2019
Working with Tabitha was a dream-- she answered every email and phone call with great detail to ensure that we were on the same page. From the very start I knew that I would absolutely love working with her. She was always willing to listen to my ideas and offer suggestions based on what other couples had done in the past. On the day of the team was tremendous. When we arrived the day before we walked through our decorations and where we wanted everything placed. I found it helpful to include a full inventory list with pictures of items. When we walked into each of our event spaces (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception) it was clear that it was all done with great care. We chose to extend our party to the hotel bar for an afterparty. Between the bar and the firepit, there were plenty of places for friends to socialize well into the night.
We turned our wedding into a full weekend event and there was plenty of space to do our rehearsal dinner, wedding day, and post-wedding breakfast. Their affordable prices and excellent customer service made it all a breeze to plan and execute. I felt really lucky to have a venue where we loved our plan A, B, and C for the wedding ceremony should it have rained. The area between the trees, the pavilion, and the patio are each gorgeous options. There was also no shortage of potential photo locations!
Our friends and family loved being on site for the weekend. We had friends staying at both the Inn and the Wyndham properties nearby. The Wyndham’s were perfect for groups of friends and family at affordable rates. We specified which villages people should reserve in and it led to everyone being within walking distance of one another. It kept the party going! I stayed in the Worthington suite and it was totally worth the spend. It was the perfect location for the bridal party to get ready in. We had friends and family participate in the daily activities that Shawnee offers, the coffee shop on site was key, the brewery was great for bridal party partners while the bridesmaids were getting ready, and a few friends went golfing!
If I could do it all again (which I would in a heartbeat) I would absolutely choose the Shawnee Inn. It was the perfect location for our beautiful day!

Our daughters wedding was beautiful at Shawnee Inn. They handled everything on the wedding day so we could enjoy the day!Sent on 10/13/2017
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!
