After searching for months to find a perfect wedding venue that would accommodate our unique needs, my fiancee and I discovered The Tortoise and The Mare online and knew immediately that it was the one we would inevitably choose. The mountain view and large property delivered the natural, country setting we were looking for and the Inn itself made us feel like we were at home as soon as we stepped in the front door. Our kids were in heaven. The decor inside is intriguing and the home and rooms are well-kept and uniquely themed. Beyond the splendid setting though, which I really can't emphasize enough, are a couple of exceptional character who are an absolute pleasure to meet and work with. Laura and Steve are down to earth, fun, caring, unique individuals who do a great job helping in any way they can to assure their guests are satisfied. We'd recommend The Tortoise and The Mare to anyone and everyone with no hesitation. We love it!

Laura and Steve were such a pleasure to meet, and their energy and spirit truly inspired us all! They definitely have passion for this beautiful piece of Heaven! My niece, who is a writer, plans to use the propert as her inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing it with our friends and family - we have wonderful and lasting memories! God bless you!!
