"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
"The Inn at Leola Village was the most accommodating and beautiful venue for our wedding day. They literally do it all, from florist, salon, hotel, and food to cake, decorations, and much more. The wine reception before the wedding was an amazing touch. The food was excellent! The staff was so easy to work with and knew what they were doing. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to get married.....it is THE BEST!" -- January 30, 2017
"This venue is absolutely stunning! You will fall in love with it the minute you arrive on site. The staff knows exactly what they are doing and it really is a one stop shop, to put your mind at ease. They have a hotel, a salon, a florist, a baker, and do all the catering. I highly recommend this beautiful place...our wedding was perfect! " -- January 14, 2017
"I cannot say enough good things about The Inn at Leola Village! First off, the staff is amazing. Stephanie was kind, a total pro, and her warm and bubbly personality made planning our day so lovely, and low maintenance! Even the ladies at the salon made me feel so comfortable and special. Thank you for making the best day of our lives truly perfect!" -- January 7, 2017
"There aren't enough words to say how thrilled we were with our experience at the Inn at Leola Village. From start to finish, planning our wedding at this venue was such a seamless process and we credit much of that too our fantastic coordinator, Stephanie Lambert, who's the director of Special Events at the Inn. As soon as we met Stephanie, we knew we were in good hands. She's professional, easy to work with, trustworthy and reliable; and most importantly her caring personality put us at ease.
We literally had nothing to worry about. She really helped guide us throughout the entire 18 months or so that we were planning our special day. She even came through when we were under the minimum amount and put together a delicious after party menu that people raved about just as much as they raved about the actual dinner and cocktail hour (which were absolutely delicious). We trusted her so much, we didn't even ask her what was on the after party menu and when we go there we were not disappointed!
Tracie, the florist, was also a privilege to work with. She has such an eye and really brought our vision to life. We know nothing about flowers, but again had nothing to worry about because we were in good hands. The rest of the staff, Justina who made our beautiful and equally delicious cake, the maitre d' for the reception (I believe his name is Colin), the chefs, bartenders, servers, doormen, the folks at the front desk, sales department and housekeeping were also so wonderful. They truly made a lasting impression on us and our guests. Eight weeks later and our guests are STILL marveling about everything. We are so happy we chose the Inn at Leola Village for our wedding and are forever grateful to everyone there who made our wedding the day the absolute best!" -- November 22, 2016
"My husband and I are head over heels in love with the Inn at Leola Village, and their coordinator, Stephanie Lambert, was simply incredible to work with over the year that we planned our wedding. We toured about 10 different venues before deciding on the Inn, and it was a pretty simple choice for us once we visited. The Inn has it all. You can have an indoor or an outdoor ceremony of just about any size, many of your guests can stay on site in their luxurious and unique rooms, the bride and all of her ladies can get their hair and makeup done in the salon, they take care of the flowers, the food and the cake. Stephanie and the rest of the staff at the Inn clearly know how to make a wedding come together!
My husband and I felt comfortable throughout the whole process because Stephanie met with us and followed up with us to make sure that we were on schedule. I got very nervous the week leading up to the wedding, but Stephanie calmed my nerves and assured us that everything would come together.
We had fewer guests than we expected, so Stephanie worked her magic to provide a signature cocktail of my dreams to bring us up to the minimum amount. Our guests loved our whiskey with hot apple cider signature cocktail! The chef was also incredibly accommodating. He was willing to make a recipe from my favorite cookbook for my vegetarian guests. I was so happy!
The guys loved hanging out in the Billiards Room before the ceremony, and I can't wait to see the pictures. It was awesome to be able to walk from my room over to the salon to get ready with all of my ladies and then head up to the bridal lounge in Casa Di Fiori to get dressed before walking down the steps to the big beautiful doors that are opened to the ceremony space. Our guests were in awe of the level of service provided throughout the night by the staff, and the decor was just beautiful. It was really incredible, and we are so happy that we chose to get married at the Inn at Leola Village!" -- November 21, 2016
"We had both our ceremony and reception at the event space, Casa Di Fiori, and it is simply amazing. It gave the exact feeling I dream about for my wedding. Stephanie is the onsite coordinator we worked with and she is super lovely to work with and very responsive to all kinds of questions I had during the planning. Every single thing on my wedding was so perfect that all my family and friends still give my compliments now." -- October 25, 2016
"I cannot say enough about this place, The Inn at Leola Village is simply perfection! Our wedding day was flawless! The food was wonderful, the staff so super friendly and accommodating, and the decor was unforgettable! So many places to take pictures...I could go on and on.
All I can say is there is not one single thing I would have changed on our special day. Thank you Leola Village for making our day the best day we could have ever imagined! If you are planning a wedding this place is DEFINITELY worth checking out, you won't regret it!!!!" -- October 24, 2016
"My fiance and I wanted a small family ceremony with as little fuss as possible, and Leola delivered big time. One of the things we loved about the Inn is that pretty much all of the details (wedding site, flowers, cake, decorations, reception site and food) were taken care of. Stephanie, the event coordinator, was lovely. She got us in touch with all of the vendors, kept us up to date with how things were going, and was very prompt in her responses to email. Everything went even better than we could have planned. Even the waitstaff were incredible: funny, flexible, and professional. We would highly recommend the Inn to anyone." -- August 21, 2016
"Best place ever to have a wedding! Tara and the staff were amazing, the whole day went smooth and as is planning. Couldn't ask for a better day!" -- September 28, 2016
"My husband and I fell in love with the rustic charm Leola has! The staff is very friendly and our wedding coordinator was amazing! Tara listened to every little detail we gave from the first conversation to last. She offered her expert opinion on things throughout the process and always had a suggestion for us when we needed it. Tara was awesome with being available and if she wasn't, she always called back fairly quickly. We were able to walk through the barn a few times which made it easier to plan where we wanted everything.
The day of our wedding, Tara was right there to check on my husband and I. We had little to no stress because Tara was on top of everything, which made our wedding planning and wedding day perfect! I believe his name was Colin, he hosted our tasting and was our go to guy he night of our wedding. He kept everything going so smoothly and even checked in with my husband and I during our reception to see if we needed anything . He was awesome!! Tara, Colin and the staff at Leola really made sure we had the best night of our lives and we cannot thank them enough! My husband and I had an absolutely amazing wedding!! The Inn at Leola is a beautiful venue and we cannot wait to go back anniversaries!" -- August 2, 2016
"We had an absolutely fantastic wedding at the Inn. Our wedding was to be a weekend with our closest family and friends. Our guests arrived on a Friday and we had activities planned predominantly at the hotel for the entire weekend through the brunch on Monday morning - and there was more than enough to do to keep everyone occupied with fun, relaxation and fantastic food!
Our wedding celebration weekend started out with a welcome reception in the wine room with light apps, pastas, and a fruit, cheese, and veggie display. We were expecting light meal for our guests, but our vision was far exceeded by the staff at the inn. They made sure that our guests had a wonderful variety of appetizers and there was so many different cheeses and meats, which were all great and the vegetables were incredibly fresh and everyone left stuffed that night. The atmosphere at the hotel is just beautiful and with every event they made sure our guests felt special and well taken care of. You really feel the personal touches everywhere at this venue. Throughout the weekend, our guests enjoyed amazing food, some great amentities (my wife enjoyed a fantastic spa day) and many people ate a several meals at the hotel's restaurant. Everyone was blown away by the preparation and the creativity of the dishes. (The burgers came wrapped in parchment paper, the steak was served on butcher block, but all these little touches I'm sure will leave everyone talking for sometime)
Our wedding was on that Sunday evening. The venue was decorated gorgeously. We had multiple course family-style Italian feast - and everything was delicious. Octopus is one of my favorite foods, and the hotels' preparation was among the best I've had and it was very tender. We also had the calamari lifeguard-style which I wasn't sure I would like as much as a Rhode Island style fried calamari, but it was awesome. We had a pasta course with stuffed shells before having beef & chicken entrees that were tender and moist and not your typical bland & uninventive wedding menu. Our guests are still commenting on our Italian dinner and how much they enjoyed all this hotel had to offer. I would highly recommend the inn for anyone who really wants that 5 star experience with a personal touch." -- June 9, 2016
"A week after our PERFECT wedding and I miss being there already. We are already booking for our one year anniversary. I cannot say enough about The Inn at Leola Village. I knew from the first moment I stepped into the place, that this was to be my dream wedding. Everything from the food, rooms,drinks, service, pleasant greetings, flowers, and the wedding planner (Stephanie Lambert) was absolutely wonderful. The flowers for the entire event were stunning. I loved this place and would recommend it to anyone who wants to have an upscale wedding filled with a lifetime of memories. We made a whole weekend event with my entire family and best friends scattered from around the county and no one could say anything bad about the Inn. It was a weekend to remember and something I will cherish forever. Thank you from all of us...the Inn at Leola Village is spectacular." -- June 11, 2016
