Nestled in the charming village of Brandon, The Lilac Inn sits majestically on Park Street. Built in 1909, this renovated historic mansion has been the backdrop to countless custom Vermont wedding receptions and special celebrations, in any season. The summer home of a Chicago financier born in Brandon, the uniquely shaped 11,000 square foot mansion, three wings built around a specimen elm tree for shade, was completed at an original cost of $75,000. The current owner and wedding coordinator, Shelly Sawyer, leaves nothing to chance as she crafts the wedding day you have always envisioned. With a talented culinary team and experienced staff waiting to help, The Lilac Inn is the perfect destination for a custom Vermont wedding reception. The large air-conditioned ballroom can seat 130 guests, or the courtyard can be tented for up to 250 guests. There are six working fireplaces in the inn, so winter weddings are extra romantic and extra special. As only one wedding is performed per weekend, the romantic country inn becomes your private home for you and your guests to enjoy. Nine individually decorated rooms allow your guests to unwind and relax in comfort, stroll through the manicured perennial gardens or simply pass the time sitting on the inviting front porch watching small town life in Vermont. It is little wonder that The Lilac Inn, was named one of the 100 Best U.S. Wedding Destinations by Kathryn Gabriel Loving.
