This review pertains to the experience I had as a guest at a coworker's wedding in the spring of 2012, and not as a guest of the Inn. When I arrived with some other coworkers, we discovered there was no place to sit for the cocktail hour- all of the guests who arrived before us had taken up all the chairs in the courtyard (there weren't many to begin with). It was beautiful outside that day so there was no way we were going to spend it inside away from the rest of the people just to have a place to sit down. The only space left was at a high top table without chairs. So we stood there through the cocktail hour and appetizers.
When the wedding party was entering, the MC didn't announce any of the bridesmaids or groomsmen, so you didn't get to learn who these people were. He hovered over the maid of honor and best man as they made their toasts, so it was difficult to take pictures without him in the background.
When it was finally time for dinner, our table was taken by some other guests so we had to sit inside and eat. While the MC (the owner, I presume?) welcomed everyone to come to the buffet and find a comfortable place to sit and eat, I ended up sitting on the floor at an end table because there were no other chairs available. How can you host events for 100+ people and not have enough chairs??
As other reviewers mentioned, I did notice the excessive amount of Glen Beck books. One of the groomsmen said that was the only "literature" in their room. Come on. A quaint B&B should be offering classics.
While the courtyard is nice and pretty when everything was lit up in the dusk, this place needs a major overhaul. The cobblestone is hazardous, the wall paper and decor are extremely outdated, and it could use a really good dusting.
