About The Sherwood Inn

Set the perfect stage for your wedding with spectacular Skaneateles Lake and the Sherwood Inn.

The Sherwood Inn has been a popular venue for weddings for over two centuries.  With its beautiful scenic views of Skaneateles Lake and its setting in the midst of the historic Village of Skaneateles, our beautifully restored colonial inn creates an idyllic setting for any wedding reception no matter the season. We can make your dream wedding come true.

At the Sherwood Inn, you have your own personal touch; we work with each guest from the initial consultation until the final planning details. We wish to ensure that the wedding of your dreams is everything you desired it would be: an unforgettable experience.

We also know that planning a wedding takes time. In order to help you further, we provide information on many other services you may need, from cakes to transportation, florists to entertainment.  The Sherwood Inn caters to groups both large and small and we are confident that we will match your requirements as well as your budget.  The Sherwood Inn provides a service ratio of more than one staff member to every twelve guests, plus the benefit of a dedicated event manager to tend to every need of the host and their event.

We will be on hand to help you add all those personal touches that make your day one-of-a-kind. Details of our menu choices, wine list, and beverages menu are located on our website.  However, if you wish to design your own menu, our Catering Director would be pleased to discuss this further. 

Be sure to schedule a visit to the Sherwood Inn early into your wedding planning so that we may show you our banquet and lodging facilities, introduce you to our team, and discuss your wishes further.

I couldn't have asked for a better wedding reception than the one I recently had at the Sherwood Inn in Skaneateles. Meredith and Shelly, and the entire team at the Sherwood Inn, were exceptional to work with before my wedding and during the special day! They were so professional and helped take care of so many details, so I didn't have to worry about much! The food and service was absolutely outstanding, and the place looked stunning! I highly recommend the Sherwood Inn for any couple's wedding or any other special event! Tiffany

Picture the quintessential, historic country inn on a beautiful lake with a staff that is ready to make your day amazing! Our daughter's reception was absolutely picture perfect, a moment in time, a memory to cherish. Meredith, Meghan, and Lucinda went above and beyond with their staff to ensure that every detail was handled. We had the most relaxing time, the most delicious fare, the best cake ever (thank you, Michael!) and the most restful nights in their beautiful inn. FIVE STARS for the SHERWOOD INN. Every couple should be so lucky!

Professional Network & Endorsements

The Sherwood is one of those places where they truly come through on all levels. The waterfront location is amazing, the architecture of the venue stands on its own, shining the original era in all its glory. But, they don't fall short on service and food. The menu is current and delivered as they promise. As a wedding planner, I appreciate their goal of putting the client first, committed to professionalism and a positive attitude. Its always a joy to work with them.
