We used the Guest House to host our son's wedding rehearsal dinner and had The Market to cater the affair. Prior to searching for a venue, we asked the couple what their wishes were for the rehearsal dinner. They wanted a romantic and quiet, but elegant setting where the families and friends could relax and spend time together. We searched and recieved bids from up scale restaurants in Beckley and Lewisburg, WV, but couldn't find a venue that covered all of the wishes. While having a pre-wedding meeting at The Market in Hinton, Ginger Snider mentioned their catering capabilities and talked us into conducting a site inspection of the Guest House with Nancy Richmond. After touring the Guest House, we knew we had found our venue! We quickly met with Ginger and she made the menu process very easy. All we had to do is show up! The night of the rehearsal dinner was terrific. The food was delicious, the lighting and tents were romantic, and the setting was relaxed and elegant! Our hostess was Judy Lytle and she made everyone feel at ease. She and Ginger gave extra attention to small details from the food and wine to pineapple and strawberries on the chocolate fountain that was beyond our expectations! The entire wait staff catered to our every wish. We were lucky to find The Guest House in our back yard and it added many wonderful memories of our special occasion! Thank you Guest House and Market, and we commend your staff for making our evening extremely memorable!
