I cannot recommend the Wilburton enough!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Wilburton. From our very first meeting with Melissa we knew a wedding there would be unlike any we had been to before. The views outside are amazing, the food is amazing (our friends still talk about the french toast from breakfast), the bridal suite is amazing. The Levis family and staff gave us the most perfect wedding weekend I could have asked for. I wouldn't change a thing. We planned our wedding in about four months and they were so helpful with the whole process. The bonfire after the rehearsal dinner was the most fun and unique way to kick off our wedding weekend. We had a lot of out of town guests who rented most of the houses. It was great to have everyone close to each other. The views from our outdoor ceremony aren't something you can find anywhere else. The marble pavilion tent where we had our reception is stunning. A wedding there is really an unbelievable experience for both local Vermont guests and out of town guests. Our wedding pictures are amazing and we can't wait to go spend another weekend at the Wilburton!Sent on 05/11/2020

Our wedding at the Wilburton Inn last weekend was absolutely perfect. We created a weekend-long celebration, including rehearsal dinner, bonfire and wedding, to maximize time with our friends and families who came as far as Israel to be with us. We took over almost the entire property for the weekend and all of our guests were so impressed with the room accommodations, beauty of the property, and outstanding service provided. The wedding events went off without a hitch and it was such a warm, wonderful time that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. We found the Wilburton late in our venue search and from the second we stepped into the Inn, we were sold. But we didn't know that we would end up with so much more than a beautiful venue, we'd make new friends, and find a place that we can visit for many years and hopefully bring our families back to. Wilburton Inn is not a cookie cutter place, and it's not a wedding factory. It is a completely customizable experience that allows you to create your unique vision against a beautiful backdrop, with a family and staff that truly put their heart into the entire process. They were flexible, immediately available to fix any issues, and just went above and beyond in every way to make sure our wedding was perfect. It wasn't just good service, it was genuine love for their property, their craft, and the relationships they build with their guests. We can't wait until the next time we're able to return and thank them so much for the unforgettable weekend and picture perfect wedding.Sent on 05/23/2017

We had our wedding at the Wilburton in early September of this year. Our families are from Boston, Chicago, and other cities all over so it was a destination wedding for about 100 people. We were there for three nights, some guest as little as one night.Sent on 09/24/2014
Rooms: We rented the guest houses as well as had people in the mansion and villa rooms. The quality depends on the price. None of the rooms have anything negative about them but clearly the different prices reflect the view/quality of each room. You will find lots of "weird" art and sometimes a quirky style but if you don't like that then just stay at a Holiday Inn and don't bother going to a family owned estate in rural Vermont.
Breakfast: The pancakes are fantastic. The breakfast cook Lisa could talk all day about the flour mixture and how they integrate produce/bread from the family farm. They also offer all the other staples you would expect and it's all good and satisfying.
Dinner: We had a buffet of pork and cod. Both were cooked expertly and all the appetizers and sides seemed to go well. We served pies from Grandma Miller's for dessert but the Wilburton put on a chocolate fountain which people seemed to like. Unfortunately the fountain broke down before I got to it, but one of our hard partying guest is responsible for that - not the staff! People were having fun!
Staff: When we selected to have our wedding at the Wilburton it was run by the late Georgette Levis. When she passed of cancer her family stepped in and took over the Inn and made it clear to us that they were going to do whatever they needed to see that we got the wedding experience we were promised by their late mother. They clearly worked hard to do so. But they also maintained a fun approach to the whole experience and we felt as thought we were being hosted by some longtime family friends. In the end we are happy with our choice to get married at the Wilburton Inn and glad we got to meet the Levis Family and their staff.
