Strathmere's entire staff, especially Linda, delivered to us, the most amazing gift. A perfect, well organized and thought out day. Most couples will tell you their wedding day was a blur, of rushing, fumbling and putting out fires. Not us, we actually got to enjoy our guests, the delicious food* and each other. Linda was approachable, timely and genuinely interested in our concerns. Strathmere is a one stop wedding shop.

*our #1 comment/compliment was that the food was amazing. Which was our #1 concern!

Just got married this month at Strathmere and they by far exceeded our expectations. Everything was amazing, Kristen our coordinator was fantastic, the food was delicious (everyone raved about it) and all the wait staff were exceptional. I HIGHLY recommend it, the property is gorgeous and the overall experience could not have been more perfect. Why would you get married anywhere else???

We fell in love with the Inn when we visited it... and didn't even consider another venue. We don't regret our choice, thanks to the amazing staff! Through the planning, our coordinator was very helpful and so kind! The day of our wedding, the staff took very good care of all our guests. They even accommodated a last minute meal change for one of our guest. We really liked the privacy the Inn offered for our small ceremony (around 30 guests). The venue is also beautiful. We don't regret choosing Strathmere and would recommend it to anyone.

My husband and I were married at Strathmere last fall and we were blown away, not only by the beauty of the venue (stunning would be an understatement) but of the professional and attentive staff who went above and beyond throughout the entire planning process up until the end of our wedding night, to ensure everything went off without a hitch!

We opted for a buffet and are so glad we did! All of guests had the freedom to try multiple dishes and control their own portions. The food at Strathmere was better than any five star restaurant in Ottawa, EASILY. Our guests are still talking about their meals!

We chose to be married in the Garden House as we were hoping to have an outdoor dance floor on the patio. Despite the cold weather we were still able to have our first dance outside. It was so enchanting, strung with eclectic lights overhead – it was more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.

What really made the experience so exceptional was the incredible staff. I was planning my wedding from the States where I live and my wedding planner, Kristen kept in touch and was so flexible to my schedule when I was in town. The Strathmere staff offered support and suggestions when I needed guidance and acceded to my little requests and ideas. I could not be more grateful to them – there is truly no other place like Strathmere.

We were so happy with our ceremony and reception at Strathmere. Our coordinator Kristen did an excellent job of making sure everything was organized, answering all of our questions, and a keeping everything running smoothly the day of so we could enjoy the day! The food was excellent, we had so many great compliments from our guests on the food. The lodge and surrounding grounds have a lot of character and charm which we loved and was great for photos.

We fell in love with Strathmere as soon as we arrived for our tour. We chose to have our ceremony and reception at the Garden House - it was everything we dreamed of for our wedding day. The outdoor ceremony was simply perfect - private with a beautiful setting of gardens. Our coordinator Kristen was fabulous! She went above and beyond to ensure everything went off without a hitch. The food was delicious - we gave our guests an option to choose from chicken or salmon and people are still talking about how amazing the meals were. Our whole wedding party got ready on site - the groom and groomsmen in the school house and the bride and bridesmaids in a suite. It was so nice to have everything at one location and it made everything go so smoothly. Our wedding was more beautiful than we could have imagined and we cannot thank Strathmere enough for going above and beyond to make our wedding a day we will never forget. We would recommend them to anyone!

My (now) husband and I first went to Strathmere for a friend's wedding and instantly fell in love with the venue, the service provided for the wedding was perfect and very professional. The food and services are amazing.

We married two years later and could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else, everything went so smoothly and our coordinator was very accommodating, all our guest were happy, the food was amazing.

Strathmere is close enough to the City but the feel that you are at a destination and with three other venues you still get the feel of private for your day.

I highly recommend Strathmere to anyone who is considering a venue for your wedding.

My husband and I had our Christmas dream wedding 4 years ago . Strathmere made it so magical that it still feel like we were married just yesterday. The food was amazing ..the staff great..they have the best coffee.. the ambiance was magical and intimate just like we wanted and our family still talks about how romantic and special our day was. We were so happy with everthing that we go back every year at their event called Christmas on the Farm so that we can celebrate our wedding anniversary where it all started.

My husband and I got married at Strathmere on Sunday 27 April in 2014, and it was outstanding! They were wonderfully accomodating to us planning from out of town, and immensely helpful to all of our friends and family coming from out of town as well. Linda, our coordinator, was incredibly helpful, kind, and professional throughout the entire process. Our venue, the Garden House, was very beautiful and the grounds were beautifully well-kept, even after the end of a very long winter. The servers and bartenders were very attentive. The food was truly amazing, and everyone is still talking about how excellent it was--we had a brunch buffet featuring eggs benedict, salmon, prime rib, baked brie, salads, scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and a huge array of desserts. Far better than any traditional hotel buffet could have been! They were very accomodating to our tastes and we would highly recommend this to any other couple looking for a wedding venue or anyone looking to hold a major event. Wonderful job!
