Our January 2010 wedding was much more than we expected. Lynn was extremely wonderful in helping us plan our intimate wedding from 1200 miles away. She consistently went above and beyond (while being 9 months pregnant!). She agreed to meet with us the week before Christmas to plan everything, which we did in one day.Sent on 04/27/2010
The Inn is absolutely charming. We walked out, having never been before, knowing it was the most perfect place for us to have our ceremony and dinner. Our ceremony room was bright and cozy with large, gleaming windows all around. Our dinner was spectacular; our families still talk about the meal almost 4 months later. The family room area with bar was a great gathering place before and after the ceremony.
We stayed in room two which is probably the best room for the winter as it has a wood burning fireplace; very romantic and comfortable. All of our family members that stayed at the Inn loved their rooms and those that did not stay wished they had!
Though we were married in Winter, which was absolutely breath-taking with newly fallen snow, the grounds are lush and beautiful in Spring and Summer months and you cannot beat the colors in the Fall.
I do not have one negative comment. Lynn and the staff were flexibile enough to allow a last minute change. You will be extremely happy with your choice if you choose The Four Chimneys Inn. We cannot wait to go back for a visit and dinner. We feel like Lynn and the staff are extended family. They will all help make your day stress free and lovely.

This was the perfect venue for our small, winter wedding! The inn the was lovely and located in an historic, quintessentially New England town, and the food was the among the best I've tasted. Our guest list included vegetarians and vegans, and the inn owner and chef kindly worked with us to create a menu (and a beautiful, unique cake!) that worked for everybody. The service was superb, and the waitstaff was extremely polite. Our guests were very happy with everything, and my new husband and I couldn't have asked for a better day.Sent on 02/12/2009

This is a charming, small, historic Inn. The Inn *is* the decoaration -- you'll find you want to do little by way of extra decorations. The rooms in the Inn are just beautiful, and it's great for everyone for the place the guests stay to be the site of the reception. The Chef is an award-winning Chef and at my reception, the guests basically asked me to call him out of the kitchen so they could applaud him. Best of all, the responsiveness and flexibility of the couple than run the Inn are just amazing: they've done many weddings at the Inn and they know what they are doing and things magically happen perfectly or get fixed so they are perfect. I sat down my bridal bouquet somewhere, and the next thing I know it's been helpfully placed in a beautiful vase of water. The best man (my groom's Dad) confusedly thinks he can have something off the menu, and the Chef finds a way to accommodate him with a special plate of salmon. Well before the wedding, the innkeepers had excellent suggestions and vendor recommendations (great cake vendor!). This Inn is not just a great site for a great reception -- it's a free wedding planner thrown into the mix. So, for the price, you can't do better. The historic Old First Church, the oldest church in Vermont, is just 500 yards down the road if you plan a church wedding. The reason I chose this Inn as the site for my reception is that I went to a summer wedding there and saw how good the innkeepers were at running weddings. But I chose it as the site for a winter wedding -- it looks so beautiful in the snow! -- and it has a lovely, romantic feel when the rooms are lit up warmly on cold winter nights.Sent on 02/13/2009

I believe we may have been the first wedding under new ownership. The new owners were very attentive and the very best thing that could have happened did - everything seemed to happen automatically. No hitches or hiccups. People still talk about it and many still proclaim our wedding the best they have ever attended. The best part was there was enough room to house our entire bridal party right in the inn, and additional guests were at a hotel less than a mile down the road. There were a million additions we could have made ourselves (the owners were completely flexible) but we went classy-simple and it was phenomenal!Sent on 08/08/2008

The Four Chimneys was great to work with! They went out of their way to make sure our day was special. We chose a brunch food buffet and all of the food was absolutely amazing! It is an excellent place for a spring or summer wedding in beautiful, historic Vermont! Since it was in a historic district, some of the flexibility was limited, such as the volume of music and size of the guest list, however I wouldn't have changed one detail of the event.Sent on 05/06/2008
