Our wedding weekend was more than we could have ever asked for!
When deciding where to have our wedding, we looked at so many aspects...food, location, hotels, cost, etc. and truly every aspect of what we were looking for we found at the Tidewater Inn. The staff was so helpful during every phase of the process, from choosing the menu items, to even helping us find other vendors, and making sure our guests were able to get into the Inn for that specific weekend. We truly felt like we were the only couple getting married there with how attentive to detail the staff was throughout the entire planning process. Melanie, our coordinator, always checked in on us to see how things were going and was so timely in her responses which was very reassuring. We would recommend The Tidewater to anyone who wants an easy wedding planning process from start to finish, including amazing food!!Sent on 12/18/2018

AMAZING HISTORIC venue, restaurant, & coordinator
My husband and I recently got married at this venue. Prior to booking we had stayed in the hotel and had eaten at their amazing restaurant a year prior. Not only did this venue exceed all of our expectations, but Melanie is the absolute BEST wedding coordinator and a wonderful person. She made the process extremely simplified and assisted at all levels. She was extremely easy to get in contact with and had prompt responses. If you decide to get married at this venue, make sure to go to the huge tasting day event that is filled with lovely food & drinks. The staff at Tidewater Inn are all very sweet and accommodating- from checking in, dropping off decor, answering all my questions, and fulfilling my rehearsal & wedding day needs. My husband and I had SEVERAL amazing comments about the yummy food & gorgeous historic venue from our guests. I know that we will definitely be visiting again soon, and I'm sure some of our guests will too. THANK YOU Melanie and the Tidewater Inn for delivering our dream wedding! :)Sent on 05/17/2019

The perfect weekend!
We had the BEST experience at the Tidewater Inn. Not only is it a beautiful venue, and lovely accommodations, the staff was always exceptional and created a memorable experience. During the planning process we were guided every step of the way by Melanie. She helped us figure out what was best for our small intimate wedding. She even offered us last minute a change in rooms that even better accommodated our vision for the day! The hotel did all our catering for the rehearsal dinner and wedding and all our guests kept raving about how great it all was. We were so pleased with every part of our experience! Even being a small wedding we felt like we were the most important group at the hotel.Sent on 05/11/2019
