    The Tortoise and The Mare is by far the best place in the whole world; whether you are looking for a quiet get away or to host an extravagant event, they have it all. The property is settled on top of a mountain and the views seem to stretch all the way to the end of time; completely surreal. We had our wedding there in August of 2018 and I can't express enough, our gratitude for the owners Steve and Laura. This couple made sure everything was absolutely perfect for our Big Day and were very accommodating in making our vision come true. We had a unique wedding with a spread out plan, live band and a food truck! They even planted seeds and grew the flowers I desired for the ceremony and reception. If it weren't for them, our dreams would never have come true. We fell in love with them both and the property instantly and can't wait to return for another family get together!

    We are such big fans of Laura & Steve, the amazing owners of The Tortoise and The Mare Inn!! With only a month to plan our wedding, I never once felt stressed about our venue. We rented the Inn, grounds, and the two guest houses for the weekend for a small, second marriage ceremony of about 30 people. The Inn is stunning, the barns are magical, and the views of the mountains are breathtaking. Laura & Steve were so helpful with the planning, setting up, and even driving us to the local hospital after my teen son broke his arm!! Now that goes above and beyond expectations. We plan to return to The Inn every year for our anniversary with our family of six to soak in the magic. Laura & Steve allowed us to feel at home and our guests sensed that warmth. We highly recommend The Tortoise and The Mare for your wedding, big or small!! Happy Life to All xo

    We had our wedding June 2nd of this year (2018) and we rented out the whole Inn and both the container-minium and Christmas house for the whole weekend, Friday through Sunday. I literally cannot express enough how amazed I am by not only the beauty of the Inn and landscape surrounding it, but by how truly amazing the owners, Laura and Steve, are as well!
    As soon as you pull onto the road, you lose your breath from the beauty of the Maine mountains. The Inn gets closer and you get to see first hand how much time and love has been put into the Inn and the grounds. It is welcoming and homey with a touch of uniqueness that puts it above any other vendors we had looked at. Each room at the Inn has its own theme, which is something we, and our guests, absolutely loved. This place, is something beyond words. A getaway you need to experience for yourself to really understand how beautiful and amazing, it truly is.
    Running right in next to the amazingness of the Tortoise and The Mare, are Laura and Steve, the owners. My husband and I had quite a few monkey wrenches thrown into our planning for our wedding and Laura and Steve went above and beyond in doing their best to accommodate our needs. Laura was very quick with responses and ideas when we were having difficulties deciding which ideas would work best for the type of wedding we were trying to have. They made us feel right at home and helped when ever we needed it to make sure that our day was amazing. It was all that and more and all thanks to Laura and Steve. Truly awesome people. Made so many good memories here at the Inn and we will surely be back to make many more.
    Love and Blessings, Mr. and Mrs. OB
