We cannot say enough about the Sherwood Inn! We had a small wedding of 30 people and reserved the Hannum House and a few rooms at the Sherwood Inn. Everything about our stay was wonderful...the staff were easy to work with and very responsive to all our needs prior to the wedding and during the ceremony and reception. They were attentive, professional and kind to all of us. The food was delicious, the rooms and reception area were beautiful. Our wedding celebration was exactly what I had hoped it would be! We also had our cake from The Patisserie which is a small bakery behind the Sherwood Inn, known for delicious pastries, treats and wedding cakes and I LOVED our cake as well! You cannot go wrong having your wedding at the Sherwood Inn..it is simply amazing.

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!
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.
