"My Daughter's wedding weekend fell on the blizzard of 1/23/16. The Inn at Leola went above and beyond to make this the wedding of the century! Stephanie and the entire hotel staff deserve the highest admiration for their professional yet compassionate response to all of the "road blocks" that were thrown in our way. They made it look seamless and flawless and beautiful with the best food and accommodations you could ever expect. We will forever be grateful. If you want that kind of care for your day, then just imagine what they would be like under normal circumstances! " -- January 23, 2016
"Stephanie and the entire staff of the inn at Leola were INCREDIBLE! Special shout out to Aaron at the front desk and Alexis in the salon, I mean really really above and beyond level of service. We were married in the blizzard and everyone stayed the weekend at the hotel to work our wedding and NOT ONE person appeared to be disgruntled or upset by it. Everyone had a smile on their face the entire time. All of my vendors were canceling the morning of my wedding and she made sure everyone got to the wedding and made sure we had the perfect day, which I'm sure was no small feat in a PA state of emergency!
Meanwhile, Alexis in the salon took me under her wing and into a back lounge area to calm down and relax (I was understandably pretty shaken up by the whole ordeal), and successfully got my mental state back on track.
I wholeheartedly believe the day would have been surely ruined had we chosen to host our wedding at any other venue. Absolutely stellar 5 stars all around review for the Inn at Leola Village, spectacular service and we will probably anniversary there every year. Oh, in addition to being the most wonderful above-and-beyond staff ever, the food was excellent, the event space lovely, and hotel rooms divine! Best day of my life! Thank you!!!!" -- January 23, 2016
"There aren't enough words to describe how beautiful, classic, and convenient the Inn at Leola Village is. We had our after rehearsal dinner here, our wedding ceremony, and our reception here. The bridal party had their hair done in the Destinations Spa, at the Inn.
The Village Baker designed and made our wedding cake, the Village Florist, Tracie, created all of our bouquets and center pieces, and our reception dinner was held here, also. 90% of our guests stayed at least one night at the Inn, and some stayed two nights. Every single person I spoke with said that the rooms, the food, the scenery, and the wedding in general, was amazing. Many people told us they hoped to come back for another wedding there someday. One friend told me our cake was the best cake she has ever had."
The Inn at Leola Village was the perfect place to get married! We had the best experience and didn't have to stress over anything. We worked with Stephanie and she was amazing. She helped us every step of the way. The Inn was great because everything is one location. (venue, flowers, spa, food, and hotel for guests and bride/groom) I would highly recommend this place for anyone getting married". -- November 29, 2016
"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
"I don't know where to begin to describe how amazing the Inn was for our wedding. It was perfection. Not only it is a beautiful place, but the staff is outstanding and went above and beyond for everything. We didn't have to worry about a single thing for our wedding because Stephanie, Aaron, Kryslin and the rest of the staff took care of it with ease and a positive attitude. We genuinely felt they cared about us and it showed in everything they did. The food was delicious, the flowers were beautiful and not a single thing went wrong because the venue was on top of everything. We highly recommend this place and could not have had a more perfect day." -- November 13, 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
"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
"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 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
"We had an amazing wedding at the Inn at Leola Village. We couldn't have found a better place for not only our guests to enjoy their mini-vacation, but also have the wedding of our dream. The staff went above and beyond to meet our every need. It was so impressive to see the staff planting flowers our wedding weekend since our winter wonderland ended up being a 70 degree summer day. To make sure the grounds looked just gorgeous for our photos really was a special touch. From greeting our guests with a warm smile, making sure they were completely satisfied with their room, coordinating a wonderful spa day for me and my family, preparing a fantastic wine themed rehersal dinner and of course our amazing wedding. We can't thank the staff enough for making our wedding day all that we imagined.
The food was SO GOOD. Everything turned out better than what was presented at our tasting. We added some special touches at the end of the night with a gorgeous cheese cart that our guests loved. Everyone could try cheeses from around the world and it was a big hit. Our wedding cake was beautiful and unlike other weddings I have been too- was fantastic tasting too. I would highly recomend this venue to anyone looking to have a a5 star wedding with a personal touch.
We looked at several other venues and felt like a number. Not here- they really take care of you and your guests. The staff know you by name and were always checking in to make sure we had everything we need. Right before the big day the staff confirmed all details with us and made sure everything was exactly as we wanted it to be. The florest was in house and do not venture away from Tracie. She took my vision and turned it into something out of a story book. We can't thank the Inn enough for making our dream wedding come true. -- June 9, 2016
"The staff at the Inn at Leola Village and the gorgeous venue itself made for the most amazing and perfect wedding weekend of my husband and I's dreams. We worked with Stephanie, director of special events, for a little over a year and she was absolutely wonderful to work with. You can tell that she truly loves what she does through her positive and bubbly personality and she made wedding planning as stress free as it can get. Stephanie was very responsive by phone and email, patient and provided the most outstanding customer service during the whole planning process, as well as the weekend of the wedding.
Our guests had nothing but positive things to say about the hospitality of the staff at Leola, the setting and appeal of the venue and the delicious food. Colin, the director of catering, was wonderful to work with as well, and even boxed up the many leftovers we had left from our rehearsal dinner that was held there as well. Every staff member who I encountered at Leola was wonderful, attentive and showed the utmost professionalism. Additionally, our flowers were done by Tracie at Village Floral, and everything from the bouquets to the centerpieces were absolutely stunning. Her work is truly magnificent. There are not enough positive words to describe our experience at Leola, both working with Stephanie and the staff leading up to the big day, and how the wedding itself went off without a hitch. We have nothing but positive things (and a lot of one of the best weddings I've ever been to)! and I would recommend The Inn at Leola Village to anyone getting married! We are already counting down the days until we can go back to visit for an anniversary or other special occasion :)" -- May , 2016
"We found this place 4 months before our wedding after our previous venue fell through. From the second we met Tara and the staff at Leola we knew this place was right for us. The grounds, barn, and rooms are fabulous. It's like a destination wedding 2 hours from our house. The food was unbelievable all of our guests loved it. The staff here is amazing and so accommodating. the florist Tracy is great my flowers could not have been more perfect and they were exactly what I asked for. My husband and I can not wait to go back on our one year anniversary to celebrate! We absolutely loved this venue and wouldn't change a thing. The most seamless and we'll run wedding I have venue I have ever seen!!!" -- May 10, 2016.
"Inn at Leola Village made my dreams come true for my wedding. We had a very small intimate wedding and I couldn't have been happier with how everything turned out. They really went above and beyond with everything from making our out of town guests feel so welcome, to organizing the events at the hotel (welcome dinner, rehearsal, brunch), to our amazing wedding day.
The hotel itself is so pretty and our guests absolutely loved their rooms. Tara was our wedding coordinator and made sure everything went smoothly. Before the wedding she was so helpful in planning all the little details and during our wedding weekend she thought of everything so we could relax and enjoy the time with our family and friends. I really couldn't have done it without her. Tracie did our flowers and I would not use anyone outside of the hotel. They were amazing!!! She is super talented and had so many great ideas. Now the best part- the food!!!!
Our guests raved about our food and we have to say it was so good. My brother is a vegetarian and at most weddings it is just a disappointment. Not at Leola Village- it’s not an afterthought and the risotto they prepared was so good. This really is a 5 star resort and our guests got to enjoy the spa one day. We were super impressed with the services and again people just made everything feel so special. There are so many great things about this venue and we are very happy we chose them for our special day. The service is impeccable, the food amazing, the hotel rooms are spectacular and of course the people. Their experience was key to our successful wedding weekend and we are so thankful to all the staff for making our day amazing." -- March 29, 2016
