I want to say that I read the reviews here and they caused me some alarm. I asked about them and was told only that they did their best to please everyone. Nadine did not elaborate but said if I had specific concerns we should talk about them up front. I was briefed on every aspect of the wedding and... More

Our daughter was looking for her dream place to get married and when she found the General Wood's Inn she knew it was Perfect!! She wanted an outdoor venue, but it needed to be more elaborate than your typical "Barn venues". Don't get me wrong, nothing against them, but she didn't think that was the most appropriate setting for her... More

I have attended a wedding at this venue and I did not have any problems nor did I see any. I have worked at several weddings myself at a different venue and I completely understand what goes on at weddings. No matter what you do some one will complain and while reading the most recent reviews I completely disagree, I... More

I got married here in May 2014. In the fall, I visited the Inn and talked with Nadine and Bobbie. Both ladies seemed very capable and helpful so I decided to have my wedding there. After the initial meeting and giving of my deposit, the helpfulness and respectfulness of the staff stopped. The only way to communicate with any of... More

I was a groomsman at this wedding and the staff there was extremly rude. At the rehersal we were told that bridal party, parents, and grandparents were allowed in the house before the wedding. Well that was a lie. As a groomsman, we were allowed into a room 20 minutes before the ceremony, other than that we had to stand... More

I recently attended a wedding here and it went less than smoothly. As a guest one expects to at the very least feel welcome. The wedding planner was beyond rude to myself and several other guests on more than one occasion. Dinner was well below our expectations as the portions were very small and mine had a hair in it....

My daughter selected this location to have her wedding. It was a very unfortunate choice. Everything seemed fine when we met Nadine about six months before. The wedding planner, Bobbi, was very nice and seemed capable. We arranged to do the wedding and the rehearsal dinner (which i reviewed earlier) and booked all three rooms in the inn. The problems...

As sad as I am that others had the same difficulties with this wedding venue, I am relieved to know that we were not the only ones!! I second the statement that you must get everything in writing from this location. Things change unexpectedly or Nadine will all but call you a liar down the road. If you ask to... More

Overall, the location is beautiful and has a lot of potential. Unfortunately it is poorly managed. Bobbie and DJ Tami were the only two people who were helpful and tried to make things right. We booked the full wedding package including a full sit down dinner for 100 plus people- not a minor event or cost. We also booked all... More

From the moment I saw the house as a wedding guest I was smitten. The house and grounds are reminiscent of the grand southern homes of days gone by. The food was simply the best I've ever had at a banquet or dinner. So when my fiancé popped the question my first thought was "I know where I want to... More
