    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
