The staff at Kelly's Ford was so helpful throughout the wedding process. They were very responsive whenever I would contact them with questions about my big day. Lizzy and Tia were extremely helpful on the day of the wedding. From making sure everyone was where they needed to be to refilling my candy bar and moving items from the ceremony site to the cocktail hour, they both ensured my wedding day was everything I had hoped for.
Kelly's Ford is definitely a picturesque venue where all of your dreams can come true (cannon can be included!)

We booked the Inn at Kelly's Ford for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, and wedding reception. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue! Tia and Lizzie are excellent communicators; they emailed me back promptly and always answered my questions. The wait staff are attentive; we always had exactly what we needed. The chef prepared a delicious menus for both our rehearsal dinner and reception. We'd definitely recommend the prime rib! The General Lee cottage and ranch houses were beautiful, clean, and spacious. It was a great space to get ready for my wedding and to spend my wedding night. We'll definitely go back!

I hosted my wedding weekend and reception at the Inn at Kelly's Ford (in Ripley Hall), and could not be happier! I thought we would have to give up on having a beautiful wedding in a scenic place, since we were no on a 50k wedding budget. But when a friend that had gotten married at the Inn before recommended them to us, we checked it out and were impressed by the beautiful grounds, spacious and classy comfy accommodations, and the elegant lodge feel of Ripley Hall.

I was a bride on a limited budget who asked a ton of questions! But Tia and Lizzy were very responsive, very patient and accommodating with me despite my high expectations and high attention to detail. And on the day of the wedding, Tia ran around tending to so many details, highly professional and responsive. Ripley Hall was beautiful, accommodations were spacious and comfortable, the details and elegant feel were just right! Tia and another staff member even drove the wedding party around the fields on golf carts so that we didn't die in the summer heat - so photos were efficient, fun, and not too sweaty!

I'm convinced that the Inn at Kelly's Ford is the best value around. But judging by the quality and beauty of our reception and wedding weekend, you'd never know it.

The food tasted fine, but was heavy and nothing memorable. Then again, we did choose one of the cheapest buffet options. We sure enjoyed the hearty breakfasts that were included in the cost of the rooms - a nice perk for our guests.

I was a little nervous by the up and down reviews I read online before we booked it, but let me tell you, but those are clearly from the past and bear no reflection on the quality of service, responsiveness, and amazingness of the Inn at Kelly's Ford now, with Tia and Lizzy on staff. Thanks Tia, for your patience, hard work, and for going above and beyond!

Tia and Lizzy are exceptional at what they do! My Dad attended his friends daughters wedding here and while we are looking for a venue he mentioned how beautiful this place was. I looked it up online and I will say at first I was not impressed. The website needs to be updated! We scheduled a visit anyways because he insisted! I am so happy that we did. The entire place is gorgeous! The views of the fields and horses and the lake were absolutely perfect and exactly what we were looking for! The Arena is where our reception was, and even though the AC did stop working during out reception, Lizzy and her team were already working on it before I even noticed. It did get a little hot and I apologized to our guests and honestly not a single one cared! The ceremony was held outside on the stone fountain with our guests in the field in front of us. You have the option of a couple things to use for an entrance and I opted for the old car, and it was beautiful. My guests loved the place. It is neatly tucked away off the back roads and very private and secluded. My family took up every single room of the Inn from Friday-Sunday. The rooms and houses are beautiful and the Silo is a sight to see! The food was fantastic and breakfast every morning was great as well! Our guests loved this place so much that many of them said they would be back to stay at The Inn. My husband and I will also be back! Tia and Lizzy really are fantastic and they think of everything before you do, and most of the time its done before you even think of it!

I found this venue through work last year and went out in August of 2013 to book our wedding for April 26, 2014. Tia and Lizzy were great and always got back to me within the day when I had questions. They have everything laid out to a T and made it EASY to plan. My guest list kept changing and they had no issues always updating our final price.
I had the horse and carriage take me from the main house to the 3 wooden gazeboes at the bottom of the property. I HIGHLY recommend spending that money and doing that! Every single person said it was the most beautiful thing they ever saw! ALSO, the food there is AMAZING! We have had sooooooo many compliments about the food. Best wedding food ever, and we did the buffet! They had soooo many choices we could chose from. We also stayed there during that weekend and their breakfast and pub is also amazing and perfect! We had our reception in Ripley Hall, and we barely had to decorate, the place is beautiful already! Again, we are getting an overwhelming amount of compliments on every single thing we did for our wedding. People are already planning to come back throughout the year to have a weekend stay to just enjoy it. We had a living social coupon which gave us a discounted stay in one of their cottages (WHICH IS BEAUTIFUL) and a free activity which we all did horseback riding before our rehearsal events started! Everyone loved every single second that weekend...only bad thing, it went toooo too fast!

Thank you Tia and Lizzy!!!!!!!!!!! You made our WEEKEND perfect!!!!!

My husband and I were married at the Inn at Kelly's Ford on 4/19 and we couldn't be more happy with the way everything turned out. Initially, we were nervous about the reviews we read but we went ahead and booked the venue. I can honestly say, I didn't have one complaint! The property is absolutely beautiful! Our reception was held in Ripley Hall and let me just say, it was perfect! Ripley Hall has a lot of character and was exactly what we were looking for. The scenery, the food, and staff were awesome! We had so many compliments from our guests of how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. Tia and Lizzy (event coordinators) are more than helpful and were there for us along the way answering my many questions. Tia was with us on wedding day and she made sure everything went smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day!

This past weekend Me and my new wife had our wedding at the Inn at Kelly's Ford. We had the perfect wedding. The staff there was on point with EVERYTHING. I would especially like to thank Tia, Lizzy, and Cindy, members of the staff there, for all their hard work. Everything they did helped to make our wedding perfect. Everything from the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, lodging, reception was handled so well that we had little to worry about. The staff at Kelly's Ford has a lot to be proud of and the owner should be proud for the hard work the staff and coordinators put into our wedding. We would definitely recommend the Inn to anybody from a wedding ceremony/venue, to just a nice, relaxing and comfortable weekend. We will definitely go back for anniversaries.

I had my wedding at The Inn at Kelly's Ford on April 5th and it was absolutely beautiful! Throughout the wedding planning Tia and Lizzy were amazing and so very helpful. Navigating through wedding planning is stressful, but they were so organized that it took a lot of the stress out of planning the logistics of the ceremony and reception. Most of the wedding party and guests stayed on the property the weekend of the wedding and all of the accommodations were impeccable. Very clean and lovely. The bridal party stayed at the General's Quarters, while the groom and groomsmen stayed at the Ranch House. I would highly recommend staying at either of these places. Every staff member at the Inn was warm, inviting, and friendly! During the rehearsal Lizzie and Tia were invaluable at keeping everyone on task and helping to work out how to best organize the ceremony. During the day of the wedding Lizzie and Tia were extremely organized and helped take the stress out of the day. Throughout the night it was like they had a sixth sense of when I or my now husband needed something. Every time I was about to find them to ask them something there they would be already taking care of it. The food was absolutely delicious and the Inn worked with the couple of special requests we had with a few dietary needs of our guests. All of the service throughout the night was incredible. I would highly recommend the Inn for any wedding. A beautiful setting with wonderful people!

I truly had high hopes for such a naturally beautiful location. One of my best friends recently got married and had her reception here. From the start, there were several red flags but this was her dream spot so they held their heads high and made the best of it -- typical for this couple to do.

As an events coordinator myself, I can't help but be a bit critical, and I realize that but there were major details that I couldn't ignore as part of the bridal party and as a guest.

From the start, the Inn DOUBLE booked and left our bride with 1/3 of the rooms she had paid for and was minimally compensated. The owner of course was and remains unresponsive to such a critical issue.

SERVICE was less than efficient or accommodating. Simple communication between BOH, FOH, and guests is extremely important and it seemed as no one was communicating properly or running the place for that matter. No manager came to discuss the status of our more than tardy drinks, bread, appetizers, or entrees. All which came out in four waves, easily 30 minutes apart for each table. I understand the service industry and realize large parties take time but someone should be able to alleviate the stress and assure they will be taken care of -- you're in customer service!

There are several large mistakes that happened over the course of our two day festivities. I understand that mistakes happen but what didn't happen here was anyone taking responsibility for delivering less than adequate service. As a business owner, take PRIDE in your establishment, and be willing to hear feedback from your clients, it will make your business more profitable financially and morally and will make positive memories for so many wedded couples.

My husband and I booked our wedding here at Kelly's Ford. DO NOT BOOK HERE!

I had read a few bad reviews but not too many of them and thought that maybe there were circumstances that I was not aware of that caused issues with other clients. As a husband and wife team in the wedding industry we totally understand that there are some times in extreme circumstances things that cannot be avoided that might make clients frustrated.

I want to write a TON more than I am allotted characters so basically in a nut shell: they double booked two of our three rooms so we only ended up with one, never answer their phones, they gave us the wrong food at the reception and refused to refund our money, service was painfully slow (grandparents left before dinner because it was taking too long), the food was cold and the kicker, WORST OWNER I HAVE EVER HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF WORKING WITH.

I asked to speak to the Owner months before the wedding and was never given a call or email. After receiving the incorrect food I felt like I had been pushed to my limit and asked to speak to the Owner at their earliest convenience. She still never contacted me, that is until she saw that we still owed money for our cottage and suddenly she was on top of things and emailed us, threatening to sue us if we didn't pay her the remaining balance of the room rental (a small sum considering the cost of the wedding).

I calmly asked that I be called by Linda, the owner, directly and told the coordinator at Kelly's Ford that I was more than happy to pay our balance, but I wanted to speak to Linda first. The coordinator apologized and said that Linda does not speak to her customers (this is how you run a business?!) and that she refused to speak directly to me.

DO NOT BOOK YOUR WEDDING HERE! It is supposed to be a beautiful event in your life and here I was upset over something that could have been handled with a little respect from the Owner and common courtesy.
