Perfect wedding location. We held our wedding in the Spring Garden and rented out the entire Inn for our family and friends. It was so wonderful to get ready for the wedding, walk down to the ceremony and then walk up to the beautiful Carriage House for the reception. One site for all of our needs = perfect! Thank you Rachel and your team from S&W

I recently got married at the Cameron Estates. They hosted my rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and reception. Furthermore, I rented the entire inn for the evening of the wedding for guests to stay.

The Cameron Estates played an integral part in making my dream wedding a reality. It was so exciting to share the beauty of the Inn, charm of the Carriage House, landscaped grounds, delicious food, and pleasant service with our closest friends and family. Everyone had a wonderful time and were so complimentary of the whole experience.

The entire staff works hard to ensure your big day goes smoothly. The Director of Special Events, Rachel, was monumental during the planning process. She provided timely responses to inquiries, advice, and had a great overall knowledge of the policies and procedures.

The banquet manager did a great job ensuring that my groom and I were catered to during the entire reception. For example, setting aside appetizers from cocktail hour, warming our food, moving tables when requested, and arranging the space just as we envisioned.

During the months leading up to the wedding, I was happy to have the contracts and lengthy bridal planning guide provided by the Cameron Estates to stay informed and organized. I was, however, in all honesty, a little apprehensive that they may be a little over-the-top enforcing strict policies (as presented on paper) during my big day. However, on the big day, they were very accommodating and made me feel at ease. Something every bride can appreciate! They are experienced and effective at what they do! I certainly recommend them to others.

My husband and I recently got married at Cameron Estate and had an amazing wedding weekend there. We rented out the entire inn for all of our friends and family and we're so glad we did. It really made it a fun and intimate experience and was nice not having to worry about other people staying there that we didn't know.

The entire planning process with Cameron Estate was very organized from the beginning. Rachel always responded promptly to our emails and thoroughly answered any questions/concerns that we had. There are several forms they provide you with throughout the planning process, but it makes it easier and less stressful because you are able to see exactly what you need to fill out and by what dates, etc.

We were a little concerned about all of the strict policies and rules Cameron Estate has, but we had no issues with them whatsoever during our wedding weekend. The staff was very nice and accommodating to our guests. Mary was especially warm and welcoming to all of us as soon as everyone had arrived at the inn. Our ceremony was in the conservatory and it was beautiful. There are also several other ceremony locations throughout the property that you can choose from. The banquet manager made sure my husband and I were taken care of during the reception. The food was outstanding and the service was fast. We took advantage of the concierge package since we rented out the entire inn and we absolutely loved it. It was nice having drinks and snacks out for our guests to enjoy throughout the weekend. Many of our guests also commented on how delicious the breakfasts were.

If you are interested in Cameron Estate as your wedding venue, I suggest you reserve your date early, as they book up quickly for weddings. We definitely recommend spending the money to reserve the entire inn for your friends and family. It's a beautiful venue and you will get amazing pictures! We loved our experience with Cameron Estate Inn and plan to stay there again in the future!!

The Cameron Estates was amazing to work with. It was very evident throughout the planning process and the execution of the wedding day itself that they knew exactly what they were doing. It made for an amazing stress-free experience. Trust your event coordinator with the details and don't be afraid to ask for flexibility. Their great about working with different situations. Also, trust their recommendations on vendors. They provided my husband and I with a fantastic florist and cake designer. My husband and I were nothing but thrilled with the experience we had with the Estates and we would highly recommend them for all your needs.

Had an amazing wedding in the Conservatory and an amazing Reception in the Carriage House. About 110 guests and the space felt large still! Great Dance floor area and flexibility with table arrangements. Food was top-notch and absolutely gorgeous! Great service and overall a wonderful staff! Alcohol service a bit pricey but very professional and great selections! Also stayed in the Lincoln Room overnight with an absolutely awesome room and Breakfast! Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue with such great service!

I got married at Cameron Estate a little over a month ago, and my wedding was exactly what I had dreamed of – a simple yet very elegant and romantic event. I still can’t believe that I was able to have a beautiful outdoor ceremony, followed by cocktails (yes, alcohol was included in the package!), followed by a delicious and elegant dinner at the Inn’s Restaurant…all for a very reasonable price! Our ceremony was at the Spring Garden, and all I had in terms of flowers were my bouquet, a dozens of Gerber daisies at the altar and boutonnières for the groom and best men. All the nature around the garden is so pretty and photogenic that we didn’t need to spend a lot of money on flowers. All the set-up and cleanup was done by their staff, and everything looked well organized, classy, and clean, exactly as planned (following all the details agreed upon on my bridal form). During the planning process, we worked with Rachel who was consistently responsive and very professional in our communications. She truly answered any questions or concerns I had along the way. Honestly, my wedding took very little work on my part and, overall, it was a hassle-free event – from planning to execution. I have no regrets!

The event coordinator Rachel was very attentive and patient with our needs and requests. The venue was beautiful and despite a recent storm that brought down trees the crew worked very hard to remove all of them prior to our wedding day. The staff was very friendly to our families and answered every question we had. Beautiful location for an all in one outdoor wedding!

Our daughter's rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception were held at CEI. Rachel and Tori were outstanding in their service before and during the event. The grounds were immaculate, the food was wonderful, and every guest commented on how beautifully everything went. The wedding was planned in 5 short months, and thanks to Rachel everything was perfect. I can't say enough about the service. Our daughter cried at the end of the reception and said it was the best day of her life, better than she could have imagined. Petals with Style in Lancaster, SoundWaves DJ Jim Pittarro, House of Clarendon, and Reverend Dave Di Raddo all made our daughter's wedding day a dream come true.

WEDDING OF MY DREAMS! Everything about the Cameron Estate Inn exceeded my expectations of what I dreamnt would be the perfect wedding experience!!!!!! Everything from the planning process through the rehearsal and Wedding Day. Rachel, Tori, Beth were all incredible rockstars and I thank them profusely for the memories my husband and our families will cherish for a lifetime!!. Rachel if you're reading this, I don't know what I would have done without you!! :) Your attention to detail was a godsend. All of the worksheets, tips and advice were immensely helpful during the planning process. You even predicted the weather accurately!! hahaha...The grounds at Cameron Estate are beyond beautiful and the indoor facilities range from gorgeous historic charm inside the Inn itself to sleek modern elegance in the Conservatory. We can't wait to come back for future photo shoots, anniversaries and weekend getaways!!

We had the inn for 3 nights. The service at the inn could not have been better. The food and service was excellent. The staff was pleasant and very attentive. The wedding was to be outside but was moved indoors due to weather and this change was handled very smoothly by the staff. The food and beverage service was tremendous. Most reception food is forgettable but this was outstanding. We hosted 200 people very comfortably. I could not have been more pleased start to finish. There were only pleasant surprises!

My husband and I wanted to renew our vows after 20 years of marriage and chose Cameron Estate Inn as the reception location. We could not have asked for a more perfect event. Rachel, Randy and the entire staff were simply a delight in every way! Rachel helped us walk through the logistics and provided ideas along the way, keeping us updated as the event neared. We reserved the entire inn to house our guests, which made for a fun filled and very intimate weekend for everyone. Not only did we have a great time at our reception in the Carriage House, the evening continued late into the night as we changed into more comfortable clothes and socialized in the sitting room and common areas of the inn. It was almost like hosting in our own home. Our guests fell in love with the inn’s beauty, even in the middle of a very cold and snowy winter!

The reception food was perfectly prepared and our guests raved about it – not typically something you get from banquet food. The chef was eager also to meet our Irish Breakfast challenge for the next morning. Not only was it authentic, but it was delicious and made for the perfect way to end a Celtic themed weekend celebration. Thank you, Cameron Estate Inn for making our vow renewal celebration truly an event our family and friends won't soon forget!

Perfection is how I would describe my wedding day. The staff at Cameron Estate made our wedding day what every girl dreams of. The food was excellent, the grounds are beautiful and the staff was very professional. I cannot believe this gem had always been so close to me and I wasn't aware of it until we started looking for venues. I did not regret a thing about our decision to have our wedding here.

When looking for a wedding venue, I was most interested in finding a place that had an outdoor ceremony site with an indoor reception that had a package that included everything we would need for the entire day. Cameron Estate was hands down the best option for the money in the area. The ceremony site, Donegal Spring Garden, was a beautiful outdoor area that did have a cement pad. I was very relieved by this because it meant no tripping for the elderly guests, high heels wouldn't sink, and no leaves would get stuck in my dress. Also, with the Conservatory building, you have a ready to go back up site in case of weather, which really set my mind at ease about rain. The Carriage House for the reception was beautiful and barely needed any extra decorations. All 140 of our guests fit comfortably without feeling dwarfed by the room. The staff was extremely helpful and set up everything. When we arrived, there was barely anything that needed to be done (we set up the place cards ourselves).

Rachel, the special events director, was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We communicated mostly by email, since that was easier for me, and she always responded within 24 hours, often sooner. She was also very good about coordinating with our other vendors, some of whom were recommended by Cameron Estate and some were not.

Our wedding was everything we waned and Cameron Estate was an integral part of that. I would absolutely recommend them to someone looking for a total package venue that has beautiful outdoor and indoor space.

Our wedding at Cameron Estates was on 8/31/13. We couldn't have asked for a better venue and coordinator and staff. From day one Rachel was very attentive and was always willing to talk and answer any questions we had. She answered all my questions/emails the same day and was always pleasant and helpful with anything we needed. She offered advice but was never pushy about what we should choose or how to plan our wedding. Mary, at the front desk, was so very helpful in the planning process and was always willing to help in any way needed. When we arrived for the weekend she greeted us with a smile and offered help with anything we needed. She treated all of our guests with the same respect and helpfulness. She truly went above and beyond and we appreciated everything she did. All the staff at the Cameron were wonderful and accommodating. We were there all weekend and had our rehearsal dinner there. Everything was wonderful and well planned and went off without any issues. The food was absolutely wonderful and the staff was attentive and accommodating. The wedding site was beautiful and the reception site looked breathtaking. We got numerous comments about how wonderful everything looked and how wonderful the food was.
We were so pleased with everything from the Cameron and can't wait to return for another visit!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. Our staff genuinely enjoyed your hosting your friends and family, and although you moved your ceremony inside the Conservatory space because of the weather, we trust your photos will be just as breathtaking! Please do come back and celebrate your anniversary with us, or keep us in mind for a romantic weekend away! We wish you many years of love and laughter together.

My husband I got married this summer at the Cameron Estate Inn after seeing them support our local PBS station. We had a site tour and realized it was the perfect location. Their new Conservatory building was perfect for our ceremony, the mansion porch was beautiful for our cocktail party, and the dining room in the restaurant was fantastic for our toast, meal, and cake cutting. The grounds were ideal for our professional photographs. Rachel, the special event director at Cameron Estate Inn, was extremely helpful in guiding us, including providing suggestions for vendors. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the location was and how much they enjoyed the day. The staff was helpful and thoughtful to us and our guests. We also spent our wedding night on the estate in the Mary Cameron room. We heartily recommend the Cameron Estate Inn for anyone looking for classic elegance as the setting for their wedding day.

Cameron Estate Inn is absolutely beautiful. Our guests commented so many times about the beauty and simple elegance of the Mansion and grounds. The director of events who helped us plan was very professional and efficient. Nothing was left to chance and all our questions were answered. We approached the wedding day with calm confidence because of the way Cameron Estate staff took care of everything.

As an added bonus, we decided to stay the night in the inn. All the rooms are gorgeous and elegant. Everything was spotlessly clean.

I wish I could replay my wedding weekend all over again! My bridal party and family rented all 18 rooms of the Inn for the entire weekend. Such a fabulous venue to house guests, provide onsite rehearsal dinners and have the reception. The new Observatory was home to our Cocktail hour- our guests are still raving about the new venue and its elegant beauty! The staff is wonderful to work with- very responsive and flexible with requests. The food was delicious as well! I would highly recommend and plan to revisit on future anniversaries!

Thank you for taking the time to post a review!
Our staff genuinely enjoyed entertaining your friends and family, and we loved watching your wedding weekend unfold. It was fun to see how "at home" your guests felt at the Cameron Estate Inn, and we trust everyone had an opportunity to relax *and* to enjoy the celebration! We are thrilled you enjoyed the food (it is a priority for us) and we were also glad you chose to use the new air-conditioned Conservatory for your cocktail hour, followed by the reception in the Carriage House. Your guests (and our staff) were happy with the indoor/outdoor balance on a warm August day! It was a beautiful wedding that made great use of the property ~ and we look forward to seeing your wedding photos.
Please stay in touch, and be sure to visit!

I can not say enough good things about this venue and the staff and team of people that work there! They were so wonderful to work with and were a major reason why my wedding day was such a huge success! The friendliness of the staff and the eagerness of them to do whatever you want for your special day really makes this place shine in my book! The food is out of this world and the ceremony and reception location options are some of the most beautiful places that I have ever seen! It was rainy the day of my wedding, so my planned outdoor ceremony had to be moved into the conservatory on the property, BUT we did not feel slighted one single bit! I honestly feel their beautiful indoor conservatory made our day all the more special and just added to the beauty and romance of the day. All the guests seemed to really love the building and really enjoyed themselves. I also can't say enough about Rachel, the wedding planner, and Mary, the room coordinator. These two go over and above on a daily basis to make sure your every need is met and to make sure every detail for your day is covered and ready to go the way you want it. I would highly recommend the C.E.I. to any of my friends and family and my husband I will be spending many anniversaries there in the years to come!
A very happy bride,

We had my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner at Cameron Estate Inn. We worked with Rachel over the months of planning and she was amazing to work with and extremely professional. She treated us as though the wedding was there. The food was amazing, not a single complaint from anyone. The dining room was cozy and perfect for the number of guests we had.
On another note, the venue where my son and daughter-in-law were married could not accommodate the rehearsal. I called Rachel to see if we could possibly work something out and have the actual rehearsal at Cameron Estate. Within one day she got back to me and was able to accommodate our rehearsal at no extra charge and we were able to use the new, beautiful building they had just finished completing.
I would definitely recommend Cameron Estate Inn to anyone for a wedding or rehearsal dinner.

I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF EVERY MOMENT @ MY WEDDING. There where times when it was stressful and I was in or on the verge of tears. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate my last minute changes and request. They can accommodate a small wedding (such as my party of 10) or a large ceremony. Gorgeous views, friendly staff, EXCELLENT FOOD!!!!!! After the ceremony our package (the elopement pkg) included a reception. THE food was so amazing that my guest are still raving about how delicious it was. I would recommend this location for a bride looking for a rustic, vintage, shabby chic, country sort of feel. They offer several different locations to perform the actual ceremony both indoor and out. Price wise I think that they are reasonably prices compared to other locations. I checked out 4 other places in/surrounding lancaster and they where by Far the best place. I highly recommend CEI. My only critique would be to make sure you have your confirmation and receipts for rm reservations (there was a little confusion with the reservations, but the staff worked quickly to rectify it).

My only critique would be to make sure you have your confirmation and receipts for rm reservations (there was a little confusion with the reservations, but the staff worked quickly to rectify it).

Our wedding was in March of 2013 with the reception in the Inn's dining room. This is a wonderful venue, small, but very classy! The grounds, even in late winter are picturesque. It is spectacular in spring and summer. The food was wonderful and well prepared. Just make sure you know that part of the package for an evening wedding in the Inn includes renting the rooms around and above the restaurant. We had our out of town guests stay in the inn, and had a nice breakfast the next morning. If you desire a small, intimate, classy wedding, the Inn is the perfect place! The larger venues on the property are nice as well.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to celebrate our marriage. We rented the Inn for the whole weekend, so we could enjoy the company of our family and wedding party for several days, and also hosted our rehearsal dinner and a Sunday brunch at the CEI as well. From start to finish, the staff at the Cameron Estate Inn were a pleasure to work with and made planning as easy as possible. We were planning our wedding from across the country, and so all of our wedding planning meetings had to take place via phone or email. Rachel (the event coordinator) was quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and helped alleviate the stress of having to plan from so far away. Because most of the details were all rolled into one package (food, cake, linens, ceremony, etc.) it made it very easy to make sure all of the details were covered. The weekend went off without a hitch -- Rachel, Mary, Aleigha, and the rest of the staff were all wonderful! During the reception, it seemed like every time a question popped into my mind, Aleigha was right there to answer it! The food all tasted great, and the service was fantastic. Despite a November wedding, the weather cooperated to do the ceremony outside and it was a beautiful site for an outdoor wedding and outdoor photos. I would highly recommend hosting a wedding at the Cameron Estate!

Cameron Estates is a unique country Inn that is a tremendous location for a wedding/reception. The country location makes parking for guest easy and the short drive is a nice breather time for the bride & groom and guest. We received so many great comments about this reception location. The photo opportunities are many with locations for bride & groom or total wedding party pictures. All our photos have great back ground views! It is like being in your own private park.
The amenities are beautiful and very elegant for a wedding reception. Dining is a real treat…the food was great, served on time, with a wonderful presentation. Our guests were impressed with the meal as we received many compliments. We cannot say enough about the staff. They were all very polite and accommodated all of our needs. A fun day at a beautiful location!

Our wedding at Cameron Estate Inn was everything we had ever hoped for and more! I've always wanted an outside wedding, and there is no better place than the C.E.I. The place always looks beautiful. We had people come from Scotland and all over the U.S. and every guest said it was the prettiest place to have a wedding. Rachel is wonderful and helps with every step of the wedding planning process. She is one of the nicest and easiest people to work with, despite her busy schedule. The food was wonderful, the staff were completely professional and very nice. I am so pleased with Cameron Estate and will recommend it to anyone and everyone!

A year before my wedding, my now husband and I went around Lancaster looking for a place we could hold our ceremony and have the reception. When we came to view Cameron Estate our decision was easy. We fell in love with the venue right away. The landscape at CE is beautiful. I wanted to have an outdoor wedding and with the many options I decided on the spring gardens at CE. Another benefit to having our wedding day at CE was the convenience of having the reception on site. No traveling or wasting time for guests. The reception hall was stunning. It was very elegant yet very affordable to have our wedding here. The staff was also very helpful and were an email away since I live in Maryland. They were also very accommodating with special requests and on our wedding day. It rained!!! We had to have it in the reception hall but I cannot tell you how amazing the staff worked at making our day as special as it would have been outside. It all worked out perfect. Cameron Estate truly looks out for fulfilling a bride's dream come to for her wedding day. I will always be so grateful!

We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of venue. It is definitely a unique wedding location that allowed us to have our outdoor ceremony and our reception all in one place at a great value. A lot of the places I originally searched charged you for every little thing. At the Cameron, everything is included in the package prices they show you except for a 20% service charge that they tell you about up front.

Everything at the Cameron is absolutely beautiful. The inn is picturesque, the grounds are large and lush, and the separate reception building is beautiful. It definitely allowed us to have the rustic/romantic wedding vibe that we were aiming for. It also allowed us to have a weekend long celebration, as we rented the inn for out of town guests (ask about the Wedding Weekend Celebration package)! There are a lot of different options, add-ons, and upgrades available if you are interested. They are also great at honoring special requests.

Randy and Rachel were easy to contact and answered questions quickly throughout the entire process. The whole planning process went very smoothly. The day of, we ended up having to push our reception back 30 minutes because our ceremony/receiving line ran late. Randy was calm the whole time and easily adjusted things so that we had time for pictures.

The only issue we ran into during the day was that there were not enough chairs put out for our ceremony. However, we were able to grab chairs from the porch of the inn for the other guests. Other than this minor issue, everything was perfect. I would definitely trust the Cameron Estate Inn to give you the wedding of your dreams!

My daughter has always wanted an outside wedding venue. From the moment she met with Rachel to the very end of the wedding night this is the place to be!! Food is fantastic, (also hosted rehersal dinner there the eveninjg before). The wedding gazebo is just the most beautiful place for an outside wedding. All of her pictures are fantastic as the grounds are well kept and beautiful. This truly is the place to have your wedding and reception. We have not looked back on one moment that we would have changed. Thanks to Rachel and the whole staff for the attentiveness and professionalism. Parents, please consider this place for a wedding as you get so much more than you would expect from other places for the money. An absolute perfect day!!

100% PERFECT! Rachel (the wedding coordinator) was wonderful to work with. She was so helpful, professional and REAL. The Inn and all the grounds are gorgeous. Our reception was at the Spring Garden-which was beautiful. We did not need to add anything. There are two little steps where our pastor and my husband and I could stand so the guests could see everything. There are lovely trees which provide ample shade. Even though we got married June 15th, the entire ceremony site was cool, keeping the guests happy. The Carriage House-one reception site option-is amazing. The only thing we needed to do as far as decorations was the centerpieces. The room has greens and large mirrors which make the space beautiful. I want to do it all over again and I wouldn't change a thing.

Mary (in charge of reservations) was also fantastic. She was attentive and kind and always made sure we had what we needed.

The food was delicious, service was impeccable and the entire staff helped to make our wedding day perfect. I would highly recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a venue in the Lancaster County area.

Of course as most brides, I was running very late to get to the ceremony site. We were to meet the photographer at 1 and I got there at 1:30 and still had to decorate. Rachel, the coordinator, helped me to my room and then helped the bridesmaids decorate. She was in and out of the room all day long, keeping me posted on what was happening and kept us on time. I think I actually walked down the aisle at 3:30. I would recommend them over and over! Everything went off without a hitch and it was backup plan! Great job Cameron!!!!

My daughter just got married last Saturday at Cameron Estate Inn in Mount Joy, PA. Randy, the event coordinator, was absolutely wonderful to work with and extremely helpful in assisting me to plan a beautiful wedding at an affordable price in an historically elegant atmosphere. The grounds were absolutely lush green and very well maintained. The Inn, itself, is decorated in authentic period furnishings and affords the feeling and ambiance of old world charm.

All of our guests loved the Cameron--the Inn itself, the grounds, the delicious meals, the decor, the rooms, the staff, etc., etc., etc. Absolutely NO ONE complained about anything, which is a miracle in itself with a group of 40 people of various ages, personalities, preferences, etc.! Several of the guests stayed at the Inn all weekend and loved it and were also treated to a wonderful breakfast in the mornings.

able to give my daughter an elegant and beautiful setting in which to have her wedding day and to offer not only the bridal couple but all the guests wonderfully elegant and delicious meals in lovely surroundings.

The owners and staff at the Cameron made it possible for me to give my daughter an elegant and beautiful setting in which to have her wedding day and to offer not only the bridal couple, but all the guests, wonderfully elegant and delicious meals in lovely surroundings. It was not your typical bland "banquet" food. We offered 3 different types of entrees, and all 3 were praised by our guests.

I will cherish these memories created at the Cameron Estate for a long time to come and will continue to visit there to dine and to stay for special occasions.

We loved Cameron Estate as our wedding venue. Randy was so very helpful throughout the entire wedding planning process, and was so flexible! We had a hard time deciding on a meal (they were all great!) and they were wonderful about allowing us to come in a few times until we finally made up our minds (Chicken Chesapeake - I don't think there was a single plate at the reception that didn't get eaten entirely!).
They were accomodating in every way I could imagine, which we loved since we were hosting a smaller wedding (90 guests).
The only thing to keep in mind is that your event must end at 9:00 p.m. unless you have rented out the entire inn, in which case it can go on until 10:00 p.m. However, we just added extra hours to our reception package and were able to start the ceremony earlier, so we still had the amount of time that we wanted!
I would also recommend Cameron Estate as it is a beautiful setting (especially in the late spring), with a lot of character.

We were hosting our daughter's wedding and the event went like clock work from the very start till the end. Bravo!

My daughter was torn between the lower garden and the gazebo garden but with the apple trees in bloom the gazebo garden clinched it. The staff was so supportive of the last minute changes and we never felt pressured.

We would highly recommend the Inn for any occation.

The staff is wonderful! Rachel was prompt and efficient in all dealings. She made planning our wedding not only easy but enjoyable. She is a wonderful asset to the inn. The rest of the staff was wonderful and the food was excellent. We received so many compliments for our wedding and reception. The only downfall was not enough parking. We would recommend Cameron estate inn to anyone and plan to return for anniversaries for years to come.

The Cameron Estate and Inn was a perfect fit for our wedding. The landscape was very simple and elegant. All you saw was the girls dresses and there flowers. The bride and her dress were outstanding. There was no distraction from the landscape. I liked this approach. Everyone involved was very attentive and concerned. It rained up until the last half hour before and the chairs and venue was perfect. The reception in the carriage house was very classy, the tables were beautiful, the h'orderves were great and the dinner was really good. I can only say wonderful things about this day and the Cameron Estate.

We rented the Inn for the week-end and from the moment we arrived we were impressed by the beauty of the property. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to our family and the wedding party. It was wonderful having the bridal party and family in one place for the whole weekend. We enjoyed being able to gather not just for the rehearsal dinner but later in the evening and share memories with the bride and groom. The grounds were well kept and gave the children a place to play outside. The food was excellent, not just the reception but all our meals. The bride and groom said this was the best day ever and many guests commented on what a nice wedding it was. Thank you to Rachel and the staff for taking good care of us.

Love this venue. Which is why we got married here! Rachel is the director and was awesome. She got back to us most times within the hour. Everything went how it was supposed to just a tad on the super expensive side but worth it. The only problem was there was no staff around during or after the ceremony and our guests all stood outside not knowing where to go for cocktail hour. Everything else was good!

When looking for my wedding venue, I didn't want to pick a typical ballroom or country club environment. The search led me about 2 hours away from my home to Lancaster and the beauty of the grounds at Cameron Estate Inn won me over immediately. Rachel is great to work with, very pleasant and knowledgeable. We rented the inn for the weekend and our family and bridal party had a great time. Room rates are a bit expensive, but people didn't seem to mind for the opportunity to get away. We were married in the conservatory and it is simply gorgeous.

Dinner was good, dinner service was efficient and great. I agree with a few other reviewers - we were nervous about the strict policies leading into the weekend (mostly regarding staying in the Inn), but did not have any issues at all and our requests were met. Bottom line: We had the time of our lives!

The Cameron Estate Inn is a fantastic wedding venue. We had many guests that were local to Central Pa, but we also had a number of guests traveling from out of state. The Cameron Estate Inn allowed us to have a destination-style wedding within reach of our home. It was such a joy having our friends and family from all over, under one roof. Roughly 35 people stayed over night at the Inn. Breakfast was included for guests who stayed over night and it was excellent.

Our guests were comfortable in our ceremony site and the reception site. We used the Conservatory for our ceremony site. It is a stunning building that showcases the grounds. Many of our guests commented on the beauty and romance of the Conservatory. The late afternoon sun made for some great photos. The Carriage House had a medium sized dance floor and was still able to hold a dozen, 10 person tables easily.

The food is excellent. Many guests commented that it was the best "wedding food" that they have ever had. The wait staff did a fine job of serving the food and assisting our guests.

Two items that were frustrating was that the bar ran out of top shelf liquor and started to serve bottom shelf spirits, despite our paid liquor upgrade. In fact, at one point the Groom was only given a half-pour of bourbon, despite asking for bourbon on his wedding day. The bartender said she couldn't give him more despite the bottle being half full. Lastly, a bridal shower was scheduled on the same day as our wedding. This meant that our wedding coordinator was working with another group and was not always available. However, after the bridal party was over, the coordinator did an excellent job and corrected everything that needed assistance. The Cameron Estate Inn is very busy, so you may have to share the venue with others.

Please note, despite our two minor frustrations, we feel it was the perfect venue for our wedding. We would recommend the Cameron Estate Inn to our friends.

I loved the look and feel of their venue and felt it surpassed other venues we looked at online and in person. The grounds made for lovely pictures!

We were very happy with Rachel (the wedding coordinator) and all that she did. There was a mix up with the groom's parents table not getting cake, which we didn't find out until after the reception. And, payments weren't applied to our bill correctly, so after the fact, we still owe money. Other than those 2 things, I was pleased with the day. My husband however, is not happy at all.

While a little pricey, Cameron Estate is simply beautiful. We could not have asked for a better day. If you are looking for a place outside to get married, this would be the best location. Our wedding coordinator was professional and promptly answered emails that were sent to her. Our guests enjoyed themselves and raved about it!

We toured Cameron Estates back in September or 13' and immediately fell in love with the grounds. If you are even considering them start looking early because we got the last Saturday available for the summer of 14', almost a year before.

The food, service, and everything else on the day of was excellent and I have no complaints about our reception. We did not have our ceremony on site. There was another ceremony and reception going on the same day, but Cameron did a good job keeping everyone separated, and it didn't create any interruptions or intrusions (we were the larger wedding). The day itself went so fast, so its very difficult to point out specific details, but Cameron met all my expectations and I did not hear any complaints from guests either.

During the planning process, Cameron was very responsive and answered questions quickly. I gave Cameron 3/12 stars for their flexibility because most of their policies and standard operating procedures were 'take it or leave it.' I was hoping for a little more leeway for certain aspects of the reception, such as the little extras that get tacked on (high top tables, water and iced tea before the cocktail hour), especially with the amount of money we were paying them for the event, but I think this is to be expected with any wedding vendor.

Rachel was very helpful and was great to work with. We really wanted to have the porch party after the reception (if you're staying at the Inn I highly recommend it), but the other bride and groom did not want to share the space at first. Rachel pulled some strings and helped to make it happen. She was always quick to respond to emails, and made sure to stop by on the day of and make sure set up was going OK.

I do have some other minor complaints, but none are worth mentioning and no vendor is going to be perfect. I would absolutely choose Cameron again and I would recommend them to others.

Cameron Estate is a beautiful venue - it was the perfect place for our beautiful day. Rachel Huss is fabulous to work with. Some policies are a bit strict and it definitely is a bit pricey but worth it. The wait staff were very professional and nice. The Inn is beautiful and has tons of charm. I do think they could do something special for the bride and groom on their wedding night like a bottle of champagne or something in the room with a thank you note. Customer service goes a long way - to some extent I felt a bit underappreciated for our business. When you spend that kind of money, you should be able to expect a thank you of some sort.
All in all - a great choice. Just a few areas they could use some work on.

We held our reception and ceremony at the Cameron Estate Inn, with the ceremony and cocktail hour being outside and the reception being inside. The site was very flexible with preparing for inclement weather should that occur, as well as guests being added at the last minute (only a few hours before the ceremony began). They were flexible in helping us to rearrange the order of courses as well as the presentation which I found some other venues would not do. The wedding coordinator was very timely in responding to voicemails and emails left for her, typically the same day if left earlier in the day or the next morning. Everything was beautiful - the only area in which I felt they fell short on the wedding day was the food. The taste was delicious, but the presentation was a bit lacking. During our taste test, they displayed the food in exquisite fashion, which we had expected for the wedding day. This was not the case. Some of the vegetables had not been cooked all the way through and the presentation of some of the dishes had not been the same as we had seen at the taste testing. Overall, I would recommend having your wedding here, especially if you're looking for a venue to have an outside ceremony. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and offer a large number of spectacular photography options!

Beautiful venue! We recently held my daughter's wedding at Cameron Estate Inn. It exceeded all our expectations. It had rained the entire week up to the day before the wedding. We held the rehearsal the night before the wedding (in the rain) and I was bit concerned by all the leaves and branches at the ceremony site. However, the next morning when we arrived to decorate, they were already busy clearing and cleaning up. By 2 pm, everything looked wonderful. We were fortunate to have great weather and the pictures turned out amazingly beautiful! So many great places to take pictures on the property!

The food was also very good. (Wehad the bistro steak and chicken with lemon capers.) Many guests commented on how delicious the meal was.

I recommend reserving a room in the Inn for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready. It was a little extra expense, but so much nicer, with more room to spread out than the one provided for free. It was money well spent.

One caution - be sure to make payments on time because the late fees are very steep!

All in all, we were very happy with this venue and are glad we chose Cameron Estate Inn.

I had origionally booked with Cameron Estate Inn to use the carriage house ballroom for my reception. I felt off the bat that they were a bit pricey, but they were within my budget and I liked their "You pay us for food, we take care of the rest" policy. The woman I had been working with was friendly, flexible, kind, and easy to reach.
Unfortunately, We suffered a substantial family tragedy shortly thereafter, resulting in a significant budget cut and pushing the wedding up by 8 months. I called in tears, and the woman pledged to do her best to make things work with CEI, or, if they couldn't, to fight on my behalf to get the $2000 deposit back, (which, according to her, they never give back even in cases of death).
I made an appointment with her to go over the details in person and see what costs we could cut to make it work, and when I arrived, I was met by a gruff man who informed me that she had been let go. While we were able to bring the cost per person down, they still held fast to the $5000 catering minimum, plus the 20% service charge and the 6% tax.
So, if you want the ballroom, regardless of which menu you chose, you WILL NOT spend less than $6,360. I was majorly disappointed, but chose to do business with them anyway, spending much more than I could afford, so that I wouldn't loose the two grand they already had and wouldn't let go.
We also had a few uninvited guests crash the reception (eww...) and they were quick to make extra meals and place settings for them. BUT, they also billed me for it without authorization. Had they asked me, I would've been able to inform them that we had a few cancellations day-of that meant we had more than enough for even for the crashers. So, I felt like that was slightly poor communication and slightly unethical. (Although, we did receive the extra food we bought in to-go boxes at the end of the night. But some extra chicken was not worth 300 bucks to me)
All that being said, when it came time for the actual event, the venue was gorgeous, the temperature of the room was perfect, the food was delicious and warm at every table simultaneously, the staff was friendly and efficient, and they were excellent at adjusting the time line to the needs of the event. They even allowed us to stay a little longer than we had paid for because we hadn't been able to dance more than a few songs when our event was meant to end. That extra time meant the world to me.
I also stayed the night with my new hubby. The room was lovely, and the breakfast they served the next day was PHENOMENAL. I highly recommend them as a B&B, if you can pay their high costs.
However, as a wedding venue, I warn you to be careful reading what you sign, as they WILL NOT ever go back on it. I felt very nickle-and-dimed by them, and I don't feel like what we had was worth the cost. But, what we had was lovely. So, if money's not as much an issue for you as it was for me, go for it!

I also stayed the night with my new hubby. The room was lovely, and the breakfast they served the next day was PHENOMENAL. I highly recommend them as a B&B, if you can pay their high costs.
However, as a wedding venue, I warn you to be careful reading what you sign, as they WILL NOT ever go back on it. I felt very nickle-and-dimed by them, and I don't feel like what we had was worth the cost. But, what we had was lovely. So, if money's not as much an issue for you as it was for me, go for it!

We chose Cameron Estates for our reception venue and it was absolutely beautiful! The grounds are incredible for photos, the food is great, and the Carriage House Ballroom is beautiful! In terms of pricing, they are a bit expensive and be SURE to read the contract CAREFULLY because there is a 20% service charge and 6% tax on top of everything and trust me, it adds up!!! The staff is very nice and very detail-oriented. Randy was our coordinator and he definitely stayed on top of everything but I found him to be a little stiff and not very fun to work with. However, he does an excellent job!! Overall, it was a great night and all of our guests had a wonderful time!

We fell in love with the grounds of Cameron Estate Inn the moment we stepped on it! The venue was exactly what we needed for our intimate wedding. Lesson learned - read the contract when you arent soo excited to be signing the contract because you found the location..not sure if others did this, but there were a few things in the contract/plan that was workable, but wasnt realized fully until a few months ago. Our ceremony and reception went off without a hitch! Everyone absolutely LOVED the foods....The CEI staff are hot/cold, totally understand its a business but sometimes the professionalism is lacking, at least try to be nice when things cant be worked out or you dont prefer to work with other vendors we've hired! The overall costs can seem a bit pricey, but looking back, we are satisfied with the experience.

It is very difficult to rate this vendor based on our experience, because some aspects were fantastic and some were horrific. My daughter's wedding was held in the Conservatory and reception was held in the Carriage House. The planning process with Rachel was very professional and efficient. The ceremony and reception were very well executed and beautiful. The reception food, drinks and hors d'oeuvres were yummy. The banquet director, Tori, was warm and friendly and wonderful.

During our planning process we had unforeseen personal delays in our planning which Cameron Estates had no sympathy for. As has been stated in other Cameron Estates reviews, read the contract very well. We felt that Cameron Estates used the contract to eek as much money as possible out of us, and we were left feeling taken advantaged of.

The innkeeper, Randy, who runs the operations there, is stuffy on his best day and yelled and hung up on my daughter on his worst day. Very unprofessional! A little kindness and understanding would go a long way in the inn and wedding business, you would think. If only he and his contract were as charming as the venue.

1805 Cameron Estate Inn responded with the following comments:

We are disheartened that this client chose to post an imbalanced review. Here are the direct quotes from Mrs. Poulos emails acknowledging they were happy with their event:
“All in all, Ashley's wedding was beautiful and well executed, creating wonderful memories that we will cherish.”
“Tori and staff did an absolutely fantastic job of making our event feel like the most important event in the world.”
“Thank you again for a beautiful wedding.”

The client chose not to make the payments on time while they decided whether or not to cancel the event. Six weeks past the payment due date, the mother of the bride contacted the inn to discuss postponing or canceling the event. Our staff invested a significant amount of extra time trying to assist her with the issues the bridal couple was having including possibly canceling or postponing the event or back-filling the event with another couple they knew.

This group did not provide alcohol at the event but the bridal party brought their own alcohol to the reception. They tailgated in our parking lot and brought bottles of liquor into the reception. Our banquet manager warned the bridal couple and asked them to address the situation with just a warning and no penalty. The story could have ended there but unfortunately it does not. The bridal party disregarded the warning and continued to consume the alcohol at the event. They then brazenly left the empty alcohol bottles under their tables for our staff to clean up.

The bride called to confront our innkeeper about the loss of the alcohol compliance deposit and became verbally abusive with him so he ended the call. The bride's mother was not happy about the late fee on a payment they chose not to make, and was upset about forfeiting the alcohol compliance deposit which their group could have avoided by observing our policies.

Other reviews online more accurately reflect the services we offer.
