We couldn't be happier that we chose to hold our wedding reception at the Inn at Longshore. It is an absolutely beautiful location but it's the service that blew us away. Kacy and Christine were wonderful to work with, incredibly responsive, reliable and professional. And Laina and Eddy were just terrific on our wedding day. I never had to look far if I needed them for anything and they were constantly checking in with both me and my husband which really impressed us. Everything exceeded our expectations and our guests were so impressed with the food, service and venue space.

I am so happy I chose the Inn at Longshore as my wedding venue. The team was incredible to work with. I planned the wedding from out of state and Kacy at The Inn at Longshore made my planning a breeze. She answered emails very quickly and was always in contact with me. Eddie was with us the night of the wedding and was fabulous to work with. He made our night so easy and was a pleasure to have by our side. I feel like the team at The Inn at Longshore really want the bride and groom to be present in the moment and enjoy their night. They take care of all the little things so you don't have to and really go above and beyond your expectations. They blew us away and I could not be happier with them.

I had my wedding at the Inn @ Longshore on New Years Eve and it was the most incredible night. I have not one complaint. The Inn @ longshore was spectacular and everything went perfectly. I didn't have to worry about a thing, if there was a problem I did not know anything about it. The team @ longshore was incredible, I couldn't have asked for anything more. The months leading up to the event Kacy was always available to answer my questions and extremely helpful. The day of Eddie was my event manager and he was so wonderful to work it. He took care of everything and did so effortlessly. He was extremely professional. We arrived at the venue early to take pictures and the room looked amazing thanks to the staff's hard work. The fact that the room was all set up made it easy for the bridal party to take pictures so fast and be able to attend cocktail hour. Both bars were open during cocktail hour and guests were served often and fast. The food came out steadily and everyone was happy and full. Dinner was served quick and the bar stayed opened the entire dinner which was great for my guests. I have not one complaint and can not think of one moment the entire night where I was unhappy with the service. I would recommend the Longshore for any event.

We had our wedding at the Inn at Longshore and it was absolutely perfect!! The views, the ambiance, the staff and the food were all fantastic! Leading up to our wedding day, Kacy was very prompt with responding to e-mails and was always available to answer any of our questions. The day of our wedding went so smoothly thanks to our day of coordinators, Laina and Eddie. They were always right there making sure we had everything we needed. Even while we were off taking pictures, they were there asking if we wanted anything from our cocktail hour or any drinks. We got the most beautiful pictures on the Inn’s lawn. Our guests still tell us how beautiful our venue was and rave about the food. We can’t thank the staff enough for being so attentive and making all of our wedding day dreams come true!!!!

Kacy was wonderful to work with in planning leading up to the day of and Eddy and Laina were our banquet managers who were exceptional. They stopped in to check with us throughout the night to make sure we were ok. Laina also brought me apps during cocktail hour during pictures which literally was the greatest most wonderful thing on the planet. The night went on without a hitch. The food was awesome and the drinks were fabulous.

Where do I even start? This venue is amazing. From the very beginning walking onto the lawn at Longshore my husband and I knew we wanted to get married here. This place is unbelievable. Christine and Kacy were so amazing to work with. We had our ceremony outside as well as our cocktail hour. Cocktail hour was OFF the charts amazing, everyone is still raving about the food. We had our reception in the ballroom inside which was gorgeous! We had a choice of prime rib or chicken for dinner, the prime rib was the largest cut I've ever seen, our guests were blown away! As the bride and groom we were very impressed by the day of coordinators, Eddie and Laina. They were so great making sure we were able to eat and enjoy our day. Overall I wouldn't change a thing! We had a Saturday night wedding and I won't lie I was a bit nervous as there was a short amount of time for them to turnover the ballroom from the Saturday day wedding. The team at Longshore was able to pull it off amazingly, I was truly blown away. I would highly recommend this venue, I wish I could do it all over again!

I loved getting married at Longshore. I grew up attending events there and so it was very meaningful to have such a momentous personal event of my own there. The setting is obviously gorgeous and that is what initially drew us in. However, for the over a year long period from when we first visited to the day of the wedding, working with Longshore was a wonderful experience.

We were planning from across the country, so we did a lot emailing! The staff person assigned to us was VERY patient with all of my questions about every detail and always answered me promptly. They accomodated so many requests and were flexible with us. We had done our own centerpeices, so we had a lot of things to drop off and they set everything up for us. It was so nice to be able to do that and know it was taken care of.

I stayed in the guest suite the night before the wedding which was nice because I got to get ready there in the morning. We got married outside at 11:30 AM and the cocktail hour/reception was 12-5 -- I highly recommend this as it allowed everyone to enjoy the beatiful veiws of the Long Island Sound the entire time - many of our guests took breaks during the reception to go outside and sit in the adirondeck chairs.

The staff person taking care of us the day of the wedding was amazing. He was so calm and made sure everything was happening as it should and that my wife and I were well taken care of (champagne and food was available to us at all times).

I do want to mention that mine was a same sex wedding, and that that was a non-issue for Longshore. Everyone we worked with was professional and lovely and it was never a big deal or uncomfortable.

We recently had our wedding at Longshore and were so impressed with the staff and venue. The staff was very helpful from start to finish.
The good:
Casey, their event coordinator, was very responsive to my numerous inquiries
The food was great, and we had numerous people comment on how good it was from the appetizers to the served meal
Our ceremony outside was beautiful overlooking the water
The staff brought us champagne to oats with as we got ready in the bridal suite
Complimentary bridal suite to get ready in and/or stay over in after the wedding
I didn't even realize they were going to have lemonade and iced tea set out at our reception which was very nice/cute
Though they say vendors can only arrive 2 hours before the wedding they allowed mine much more time(they only had my wedding on Sunday, but they have 2 weddings per Saturday which is probably why they have this "rule")
Rooms are very spacious
The bad:
Bed in bridal suite wasn't very comfortable and could probably use an update/new mattress
The tasting only gives you limited food to taste so we weren't able to know what some dishes would taste like. And they serve the most expensive item on the menu so we ended up choosing that feeling nervous about what other items would be like. We picked the duet of filet/sea bass which was great, the chicken breast which we never tasted but seemed to be left on various guests plates- it was a huuuuuge piece of chicken so I'm not sure if it was just too much or not great? And lastly we picked the vegetarian ravioli which was also very good. All our hors d'oeuvres were good too (got a lot of positive comments about them and the food in general) but again, only picked ones we really liked at the tasting
The linens they have aren't very nice so we ended up paying for custom ones
We also paid for lighting as we didn't love the lighting as is

All in all we were very, very happy with the venue and our guests were too.

It was an absolute pleasure working with the Inn at Longshore team. The entire process beginning to end was so high quality- we were blown away. Any details or issues I was worried about quickly became Longshore's issue- they were completely on top of every single detail! We had rain for most of the day the day of the wedding, but because they are so flexible and such pros, they were able to wait out the bad weather and set up in time so that my ceremony was absolutely beautiful and outside- with a rainbow! I didn't even have to think about it or worry. My only advice to brides would be: If you have a large wedding party and are bringing in hair/makeup people, make sure you have enough time to get ready during the day. Most of their rooms aren't ready until 2pm so you might want to consider booking a room the night before and day of to get ready in- that way you can start as early as you want. Otherwise, if you don't have a lot of people it would take less time so wouldn't even be an issue. Love Longshore- our guests raved about the food, service and view!

My husband and I got married at Longshore this past weekend. I'd always dreamed of getting married outside overlooking the water so as soon as we got engaged, I thought of Longshore. Everyone couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating throughout our planning. We sent Kacy, the Events director, a barrage of questions throughout the months leading up to our wedding and she patiently took the time to answer all of our questions every step of the way. The tasting was very fun and a great preview of our event. When it came time for the day of our wedding, the service at Longshore was extremely professional and accomodating at every step of the big day. We really wanted an outdoor ceremony and the weather was iffy. Eddie, the banquet manager, really listened to our requests and set up both indoor and outdoor alternatives so as to be the most flexible and therefore, the staff was prepped and ready for us to have the outdoor ceremony that we'd planned. Throughout the wedding night, Eddie checked in on us, getting us the food we wanted from various stations to making sure the night went smoothly. From the front desk down to the servers, everyone we encountered at Longshore could not have been more helpful. The setting was so beautiful and we are so glad we chose Longshore for our big day!

We sent Kacy, the Events director, a barrage of questions throughout the months leading up to our wedding and she patiently took the time to answer all of our questions every step of the way. The tasting was very fun and a great preview of our event. When it came time for the day of our wedding, the service at Longshore was extremely professional and accomodating at every step of the big day. We really wanted an outdoor ceremony and the weather was iffy. Eddie, the banquet manager, really listened to our requests and set up both indoor and outdoor alternatives so as to be the most flexible and therefore, the staff was prepped and ready for us to have the outdoor ceremony that we'd planned. Throughout the wedding night, Eddie checked in on us, getting us the food we wanted from various stations to making sure the night went smoothly. From the front desk down to the servers, everyone we encountered at Longshore could not have been more helpful. The setting was so beautiful and we are so glad we chose Longshore for our big day!

I knew right away that I wanted to have my wedding at the Inn at Longshore after seeing it's beautiful garden area (even though we visited in the winter). Throughout our year plus of planning the staff was always very quick to respond to any inquiry. As the date approached, the staff and I were in constant contact and I felt totally comfortable that things would run smoothly day of. And they did. Because we were having a larger wedding, both matre 'ds were on hand, and I could go on forever on how wonderful they were. They were extremely attentive, professional, and even fun to be around.

The venue was a bit far for the majority of guests, and therefore, none of them had really been to the venue before. We received so many calls and texts after the wedding saying how wonderful everything was. Guests mentioned that the service was fantastic and the food was delicious, which I was very pleased to hear.

The Inn at Longshore was a special place from the start for me and my husband. We had our first date at Splash, the restaurant attached to the Inn and we got engaged there on our one year anniversary. We always knew we wanted to get married outside at the Inn. Our wedding was beautiful-we received so many compliments from our guests about the venue and the whole experience. The weather didn't look too good first thing in the morning (our ceremony was 11:30am) and the staff was so patient about waiting to make the final decision as to whether we could have our ceremony outside. It ended up clearing up and our ceremony and cocktail hour were outside and everything was perfect. Eddie was incredible and so attentive to us the entire time. Whatever we needed, we had-right away. Kacy was very helpful and always got back to me right away with whatever questions I had prior to the wedding. Overall, I couldn't say enough wonderful things about this beautiful place!

Our daughter & son in law had a church ceremony in Fairfield and their wedding reception at The Inn at Longshore on 7/12/13. From our booking in March 2012, we could not have asked for a more smooth transition beginning with Christine and ending with Kacy. We lucked out with the only cool day in July at 78 degrees and low humidity. Unfortunately, it started to drizzle right before cocktail hour, therefore it had to be indoors. We were able to take pictures quickly outside then join the end of the lively cocktail hour. The reception was perfect, from the food to ambiance. Eddy and the entire staff were more than accomodating the entire evening. We were all extremely happy with our experience at The Inn at Longshore and would highly recommend to future brides.

We loved having our wedding here! The staff was fabulous! They were so easy to work with, attentive and made all of our dreams come true from food and wine selection to setting up the DIY decorations I made and dropped off.

Their flexibility was wonderful and they were always informative and gave lots on resources for us.

We couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else! Even with the rain, the special, sea-side flare was not lost! Plus our pictures came out STUNNING with such beautiful backdrops offered by the location.

We just had our wedding at The Inn at Lonshore on Saturday, March 23. We could not be happier with how everything came together! Kacy and Christine were so easy to work with and met our requests as best they could. Eddy helped us throughout the entire affair that evening and made sure we had everything we needed. The only difficulty was that there was an event that ended only an hour and 45 minutes before our ceremony was to begin. We had to make sure with all our vendors that they were comfortable with the time allotted for delivery and setting up. Most of our vendors were able to work with the short time frame and the Inn turned the room over so quickly, I didn't have to worry about a thing! Just make sure, if you are having your wedding right after a previous event, that you make this clear to your vendors.

Guests raved about the food and drinks and the quaint coziness of this beautiful venue. The bridal suite was huge and lovely, my wedding party all got ready there. Being the end of March, we did the Winter Package and our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all indoors. Just because this venue is most popular in the summertime, DO NOT rule out The Inn at Longshore if your wedding is in the winter/colder months. Although it was windy and cold outside, we still took lots of phots outside by the water, and they came out beautifully. In addition, with the winter package, we were able to get a great deal on the cost of our wedding. We would not have been able to afford this spectacular venue during the height of their wedding season, and the winter package was perfect for us. Everything was beautiful and we are so thrilled our wedding was at The Inn at Longshore!

Inn at Longshore was a great choice for my reception! Even though it rained, the party was so great and so much fun we completely forgot about it. From the very beginning, we were impressed with the manager, Christine Hussey, who showed us around the grounds and answered our initial questions. Then, Kacy, the event coordinator, takes over for planning the details, from menu items to linen colors. She's extremely organized and responsive. The maitre d' was professional and friendly. Food was good, ambiance was great.. semiformal space without being too casual or too stuffy. They way the room is set up guarantees no bad seats or tables. You also get to sleep in the very nice bridal suite that evening. Also want to add that Longshore was very flexible with us in terms of helping us get our photos.. with the rain, we were unable to take pictures on the grounds the day of the wedding, but were able to come back a few days later to photograph. The staff was very accomodating, down to offering us water when we arrived and giving us a private area to change. We wholeheartedly endorse this venue. Books up quickly, so be sure to inquire sooner than later.. we booked about a year away, and we did not have a ton of choices for dates.

I loved this location for the reason it was on the water and what a spectacular view it had. I really like the women Christine and Kacy that I worked with. BUT on the day of my wedding I did not feel very loved. The waitstaff was horrible. I had a list of things I specifically wanted the day of. One was an attendent to follow me, my husband and wedding party around with Hor derves during the cocktail hour and to get drinks while pictures were being taken. One of my bridesmaids actually was getting everyone drinks and food. One of my wedding cakes had a peanut butter buttercream in it. After cutting the cake I was sure to tell two of the waitstaff as well as the matre D to ask about food allergies before serving the cake because we had people with peanut allergies. THEY DID NOT ASK ANYONE. We almost had an medical emergancy. There was no one tending to the buffet station and people were left without food on more than one occasion. My father could not get as they broke down the cocktail hour bar. My sister had to serve herself to get my fathers wine. There was no one to get a plate for me or my husband at the reception and when we finally did get a plate everything was cold. The food was very good however and I actually went up myself to get seconds (hot). The atmosphere was amazing they just really need to train their waitstaff. The scenery and pictures were worth the horrible service.

I always dreamed of a beautiful outdoor wedding by the water and Longshore provided that for us. The location was perfect and we got a lot of help from the staff leading up to the day and during the ceremony and reception. It felt very private and exclusive because we were the only wedding there for the entire day. I would reccomend reserving a room to stay in to get ready in and then stay the night. The sushi table at the cocktail hour was a big hit!

We absolutely had the most amazing wedding day. The day-of Inn at Longshore staff is incredible! They are professional, responsive, flexible, helpful, friendly and most importantly took care of our every need that day! The food was outstanding and service wonderful. Leading up to our wedding day was the challenge. Our sales manager, Kim was difficult to work with. She is not very accomodating and had an attitude. I am a corporate event planner, so I was very organized and was very easy to work with. I did not let her attitude get in our way and was very kind to her. The reason we put up with her attitude was because of the feedback I had from other brides that said that the day -of was outstanding and just to get through working with her! The Inn is lucky to have a fabulous staff for the day-of, because that is what brings the events to them. We were the only event on the day of our wedding but she gave our friend who made our cake a hard time about bringing it early. She said she could only come at 5pm (well that is when the ceremony started and she was apart of that). Our friend asked if she had suggestions and Kim told her to contact a bakery! Thank goodness our florist rocked and they helped out. Needless to say, I would recommend the venue for the day - of, facility and event staff. Put on a happy face and don't let Kim ruin your experience!
