The Deer Path Inn was the venue for my daughter's wedding. The staff did everything possible to make sure the garden ceremony went on as planned on a cool, slightly damp fall day. Tarps were purchased and put under chairs and several heaters were used to make sure the guests were comfortable and the musicians were able to play. The ballroom was beautifully prepared, the food was delicious and the staff was excellent.

This is an amazing venue for an elegant, vintage and traditional wedding. The courtyard where cocktail hour is served was relaxing, breezy, yet intimate . The hors De oeuvres were a hit what with gloved service. The dinner in the English room was intimate and elegant. The food did not disappoint. Truly 5 star fare! My flowers from Polly's Petals complimented the dark wood of the room. I had no need for a wedding planner. Mary Ellen and Joan were a great team with coordination, prompt response to queries, suggesting timelines, everything!! The Deer Path inn wait,, staff, front desk, valet were all great: courteous, professional, helped with the food and flowers at the end of the night. The bridal suite was a step back in time in terms of old world charm but with modern amenities. It over looked the courtyard and I was able to see guests mingle while I was bustling my wedding dress.

On top of being a beautiful historic location, the staff made every detail of our wedding completely perfect! While there were no problems at all, I watched the staff making each guest feel important and helping to make this not only memorable for myself and my new husband, but all of my friends and family too. Thank you all!!!

We had our wedding ceremony in the Garden at the Deer Path Inn and our reception in the English Room. I can't thank the Deer Path Inn enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams. It was absolutely perfect. Mary Ellen, Joann and the rest of the Deer Path staff were wonderful and so attentive. I didn't have a wedding planner but Mary Ellen kept me on task and helped me out so much. On the day of our rehearsal and our wedding day Joann made sure everyone knew where they had to be and kept us on schedule. Not to mention the beautiful suite I stayed in the night before the wedding. While I got ready the morning of the wedding I was able to see the garden from my room and peek at our guests as they took their seats before the ceremony. My guest told me how great the staff and the food was. We were on a budget and Deer Path Inn was able to work with what we had. Honestly, we couldn't have chosen a better place to have our wedding. Deer Path Inn is the most romantic and beautiful place for a wedding. I would absolutely recommend it as a venue for a special occasion. Thank you so much for giving us our dream wedding.

These folks made me look like a wedding planner extraordinaire and all I had to do is stand back and get the compliments. Mary Ellen and Joanne we're simply amazing and everyone at Deer Path impressed me with their warmth and willingness to go over and beyond any request. I am still stunned at how perfectly everything was handled. The guest rooms we're very lovely as well

We couldn't have been more pleased with the professional service we received planning our daughter's wedding at the DeerPath Inn. Mary Ellen was attentive to every detail in the planning stages and JoAnne made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. Our guests thought the venue was beautiful and inviting. Thanks to all at the DeerPath for a memorable evening for our family!

There honestly is not anything I would have done differently for this wedding. Mary Ellen and Joann are both such a delight to work with. They made planning and preparing more fun than I expected!

To this day we are still receiving compliments on the quality of the brunch! Everyone commented on finding several things to choose from the brunch line as well as how good the food tasted.
