"So far everything has been amazing at The Inn At Leola Villages. We have been working with Kaci and she has been WONDERFUL. I cant stress that enough. She was very inviting right from the beginning. They have all different size spaces indoors and outdoors for anything that you could possibly want. I cant wait for the day to explore all of the places that we can take photo's. I would have to say out of all of the places we looked at around Lancaster this has been the most reasonable and accommodating. They have a florist, lodging, hair and make-up, spa, dining, and much more right there. Their minimums are very reasonable and they will customize every event to exactly what you want and charge accordingly. So far they are making this the best experience we could ever ask for." -- September 24, 2017

"Excellent service and food! The flowers and cake were perfect. The best customer service I've seen anywhere. I couldn't be happier with how our ceremony turned out." -- September 16, 2017

"We had our wedding at the Inn at Leola Village and we are so happy we did. Tara was our coordinator and she was fantastic! She really cared about making sure we were happy. We were planning our wedding from Florida, and Tara was so helpful! Because we were not able to frequently fly back and forth, she took pictures of the rooms we wanted to see, rearranged her schedule to accommodate our flights and even answered emails on her time off. She took so many of the stresses out of wedding planning and made it such an enjoyable experience. On the day of, Tara was there making sure everything was running smoothly. I thought I was going to be stressed out the day of, but with Tara there I was completely at ease, knowing she had everything under control. The Inn at Leola is a great place to have your wedding if you are looking for a one-stop shop, they provide the catering, cake, florist, and your guests can stay the night! We had our rehearsal dinner at Inn at Leola and we are so happy we did because we and our guests were able to make a whole weekend out of the wedding. On the wedding day, I did not have to worry about when the food or flowers would arrive because it was all onsite! You can tell they host a lot of weddings with how organized and on top of everything they are. They even kept the hotel bar open for our guests who weren't ready for the party to end. We are so happy we had our wedding at Inn at Leola!" -- August 21, 2017

"We could not have asked for a better wedding venue experience. We worked with Tara Ash on our Aug 5th wedding and she was amazing- easy to communicate with, responded quickly to every email, and kept the day on time and running smoothly. As a same sex couple, we always felt welcomed by the staff at Leola, which was an important consideration for us when looking at venues. All of our guests were happy with their accommodations and many enjoyed using the pool and spa services. Everyone also raved about the food and the white glove service was exceptional. Tracie, Leola's florist, was a pleasure to work with and perfectly executed our vision. We utilized the fire pit area for our after party, which was lovely and a great opportunity to spend some quiet time with our guests after the reception. I'd also say that Leola is extremely accommodating with personalizing the day. They allowed our dog to be part of the ceremony and were helpful with getting a musician we brought in set up in both the ceremony and cocktail hour space. If you're thinking about booking at Leola, definitely plan on attending one of their tastings. We were really sold after experiencing the quality of food and service and seeing the room set up as it would be for an event. We had a perfect event and are so happy with our decision to choose Leola for our special day." -- August 21, 2017

"Tara and her team were phenomenal to work with. From the initial meeting to the day of the wedding - Tara was there for everything. She answered all of our questions promptly and professionally. There wasn't a single moment where anyone had to worry about a thing. Our wedding was beautiful, well coordinated and stress-free. I would recommend the Inn at Leola Village to anyone and everyone!" -- August 21, 2017

"As an older gay couple we wanted a venue that did all the work for us and we can't say enough great things about Leola Village. It was everything we wanted and more. We loved our wedding consultant Stephanie. She was a joy to know and work with. She couldn't do enough for us. We also loved Tracie who did our flowers which were absolutely gorgeous. Our thanks to the entire Staff all who were totally professional and accommodating, including the ladies who did hair and makeup. Our thanks to the wait staff who brought our gifts, flowers and other items to our suite in the pouring rain after the reception! Our DJ Matt was great too! It was a magical day!" -- August 7, 2017

"Amazing venue for an indoor wedding! Very professional and responsive. The food was outstanding (multiple people said it was the best they ever had at a wedding), and the service was top notch! If you're trying to keep the cost low, this may not be the venue for you, but you definitely get what you pay for - 5 stars! We also had our rehearsal dinner here in the smaller venue, which was also over-the-top fantastic. Fancy family style - yummy food kept coming! Stephanie Lambert was awesome to work with and always on top of things!" -- August 7, 2017

Beautiful venue! Stephanie was amazing helped us w all of our planning needs, and made sure everything ran smoothly!!!! -- July 25, 2017

"Our wedding at The Inn at Leola Village was extraordinary! The staff was phenomenal in meeting all of our expectations PLUS MORE! Their pleasant demeanor and attention to details helped make it the best day ever! Despite the adverse rainy weather conditions the day of the wedding, Stephanie Lambert, our wedding coordinator, and the grounds-keeping staff did an amazing job in quickly transforming the Piccolo Patio into a beautiful outdoor spot for us to say “I DO!” Tracie provided the perfect touch with the floral arrangements. She truly understood us and provided simple yet elegant arrangements with the perfect flowers and colors. Our bartenders, Sean and Mike did an outstanding job of keeping us and our guests properly hydrated with adult beverages. The Bella Giardino was the perfect setting for our tiny little wedding of 30 guests. The Banquet Manager, Norm and his staff were incredible; polite, professional, and very attentive to our needs and special requests. Chef Sophie’s work on the wedding cake was astonishing, breath-taking! She captured the exact design we wanted and her detail in the scroll-work to include four leaf clovers was remarkable. Not only was the design amazing, so was the taste! The guests loved it as much as we did. Kuddos to the Chef for the prepared food. All hors d’oeuvres, soup, salad and plated meals were out of this world delicious. We greatly appreciate all Stephanie did to make our day so special. Her professionalism, polite and pleasant personality, along with her willingness to listen, guide and assist helped ensure everything went smoothly. We would highly recommend Stephanie Lambert, staff and this venue!" -- July 18, 2017

"My husband and I had the most amazing experience, from the planning to the big day, everything was absolutely perfect! We were going through a particularly rough time while planning the wedding (both of us changing careers, moving to a different state, selling a home, all while juggling planning a wedding) and Stephanie was absolutely amazing! She took so much stress off of our plates and I'm not sure what we would have done had we chose a different venue. Throughout all of the craziness in our lives, I can say wedding planning was the least stressful of all. The staff at the Inn are truly professionals and will do whatever it takes to ensure your day goes as planned. The venue was beyond perfect, Tracie made the most gorgeous floral arrangements, the bartenders were awesome, the food was amazing, and our cake was beautiful! The Inn truly takes care of it all. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We loved working with Stephanie and everyone at the Inn so much that we also chose to have our rehearsal dinner there and a send off brunch the morning after the wedding (we moved to VA the day after the wedding and the send off brunch was such a wonderful way to get everyone together one last time). Both were PHENOMENAL! The send off brunch is such a nice touch and a great opportunity to reflect on the wonderful night before. I would highly recommend having the rehearsal dinner and/or the send off brunch at the Inn. Stephanie is also there every step of the way.. from the moment we met her we were sold! She instantly made us feel comfortable, shared our vision, guided us through planning, and of course through our big day. I can't say enough good things about the Inn and our experience.. we received so many compliments from our guests and will certainly be back for our anniversary!" -- July 15, 2017

"This was hands down the best venue we could have chosen for our wedding day! My husband and I live out of state in North Carolina but are from the PA/DE area so we chose this venue. Tara and her staff made it so easy to plan everything from NC and they worked with our schedules to have all the meetings when we would be in town, it was so easy. The day of ran so smoothly and the staff were all wonderful to work with. Having the salon, florist, bakery, catering and accommodations all on site was a huge plus also! The venue is beautiful (even in the rain!) and anything you need someone is there to help you with it. We are so glad we chose this venue, thank you to all who made our day perfect!" -- June 14, 2017

"5 stars isn't enough!! The Inn made our special day sooooo easy and enjoyable. They take care of literally everything!! Catering, baker, salon, ceremony, reception, accommodations, and florist! All on site!! And everything was so amazing. My now husband and I appreciated all the details that went into this wonderful event. All of the staff was beyond helpful and accommodating. We wanted a small, elegant, intimate wedding and they all worked together and surpassed our wildest dreams. Thank you all so much!!!" -- June 11, 2017

"Choosing the inn at Leola village was the best decision we made for our wedding. Stephanie helped us from start to finish and stuck with us even when we had to change our date. She made our day the best it could of been." -- May 24, 2017

"The Inn at Leola Village exceeded our expectations in every category! Our daughter held her reception there in May and it was fabulous. The attention to detail of every person we met and worked with was exceptional. The hotel accommodations were beyond perfect and met everyone of our guests needs with a smile and prompt attention. The reception venue was beautiful, the flowers were magnificent and staff couldn't have been more gracious and attentive. The overall experience was great, our guests stated many times over the course of the weekend that this was the best wedding they have ever attended with particular compliments about the food and staff. We would most definitely recommend this venue!!!" -- May 13, 2017

"We highly recommend the Inn at Leola Village for anyone planning their wedding. We are from the DC area so it was so convenient to have everything there on-site. The food was insanely good, the hotel was adorable, the ambiance of the venue was perfect and cozy and the staff was incredible. Tara was absolutely amazing to work with! During and after, our guests said it was one of the best, if not the best weddings they had been to. It was an amazing experience and you should book your wedding here! Only downside is that even though the hotel bar stays open for an after party (free of charge which is awesome), the bar is right below guest rooms so we were asked to leave before we wanted to. I can't really complain because we didn't have to pay for the space :)" -- April 30, 2017

"My husband and I got married January 7 at the Inn. There aren't words to express how perfect the day was. Casa di Fiori is beautiful and created the romantic, elegant, and welcoming feel. The services provided the day of were spot on. It was a stress free and perfect day. Much thanks to Stephanie Lambert who took care us from the beginning. She made planning a wedding easy and stress free. And her day of coordination made the day flow seamlessly. I cannot say enough about the great care The Inn takes of their brides (and grooms). And the food and flowers, out of this world amazing. We've had almost all the guests at our wedding tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Hands down, I would recommend using The Inn for anyone getting married." -- March 6, 2017

"We loved everything about this venue! It is such a beautiful location with all of your amenities on-site. Tara, our wedding coordinator, was so helpful. She worked with us every step of the way and everything went so smoothly. Tracy, the florist, does amazing work and our flowers and arrangements were stunning. Destinations Spa is onsite for hair and makeup, and they also did an amazing job all around. The wedding itself was amazing! The meals were absolutely incredible, the cake was beautiful and delicious. The maitre d' was so helpful. He was with us all through dinner and let me know when each course was about to come out so we were able to sit and eat. Which brings me to my favorite thing about Leola Village: the staff. Everyone who works for this establishment was so nice, welcoming, and helpful. This makes the experience here so comfortable and warm. The people who worked with us to plan and execute our wedding weekend really made all of the difference! I can happily say the best wedding that I have every been to was my own - it would take a lot to top the Inn at Leola Village!" -- February 6, 2017
