If you’re looking for a venue that feels like a secret, tucked-in-the-woods gem, where the focus is farm-to-table menus in an elegant, rustic setting, the Inn at Weathersfield is your perfect match. Set on 21 wooded acres, the Inn is an intimate, charming wedding venue where you can relax and celebrate with family and friends for a wedding weekend full of activities and delicious eats. Innkeeper Marilee shares more about this unique venue.
The space: What’s the vibe?
Think: a private chapel in the woods, and a farm-to-table dining experience.
The amenities: What’s Included?
For ceremonies, the Chapel in the Woods is completely hidden and accessed by a winding path. It’s surrounded by native ferns, tall pines and evergreens. The reception space on our event lawn features a stamped concrete patio that looks like wood planks, a pavilion deck on one end with a backdrop of evergreens, and the dining deck on the other end with a built-in, wood burning fire pit.
Use of the full property is included for two days. We provide tables and chairs (seating up to 120), all tableware, glassware, service ware, etc. We ask that couples rent a tent for receptions over 45 if they are hoping for an outdoor reception (over this number can’t be moved inside if weather becomes an issue).
We also provide lodging for up to 12 guests.
From start to finish we provide the backdrop for your weekend. Couples enjoy rehearsal/welcome dinners in our vegetable garden, cocktails on the front porch, and a farewell breakfast in the parlour.
The area: What is there to do in the local area?
We are located just 9 miles off Interstate 91, just 20 miles from Woodstock and 20 minutes from Ludlow/Okemo. Ascutney Mountain is minutes away for hiking, mountain biking and exploring. The Connecticut River is nearby for kayaking. There are breweries nearby – Outer Limits and Harpoon – and space to play lawn games outside at the Inn.
The history: Does the property have a rich history?
The Inn began as a four room house, built by a Revolutionary War veteran in 1792. Over time, it expanded to include 12 guest rooms, all with private baths. Historic charm is maintained with wood burning fireplaces, exposed beams, and wide plank floors throughout the property. Every room has been remodeled for modern comforts and includes free WiFi, smart TVs and either a king or queen bed.
Three rapid fire questions:
1. Favorite moment during a wedding: As the couple walks down the aisle. I am so happy and honored they chose to get married at the Inn.
2. Favorite thing to do in VT: Hike Mt. Ascutney or kayak down the river…oh, and star gaze at night.
3. Best advice for couples: Find a venu that you feel connected to, not only the location, but the setting and staff.
