Shawnee is a beautiful place for a wedding. The grounds are very well kept and the background for the wedding is absolutely amazing. We were married outside between the trees along the river and had the reception in the River Sanctuary which is also along the river.

The wedding coordinator, Simone, is exceptional and helped to make our day the best it could possibly be. She was very friendly and accommodating while very professional. She responded quickly and always had an open mind for our requests. She was up front about what can/can't be done and what she would do to help us with all of our requests. She also ensured that there was no activity on the lawn during the ceremony.

The food was amazing and there was always a drink when I wanted one. The bartenders and servers were friendly and provided excellent service (especially Katherine who was charged with attending us). Everyone that we encountered at Shawnee was pleasant and helpful.

I would highly recommend Shawnee for a wedding and will be coming back every year!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Shawnee on July 27, 2014. Everything about it was PERFECT! We were just thrilled. The ceremony location was stunning. Our reception was held in the Delaware room - which had an ideal set up/configuration for the cocktail reception, dinner and dancing. Simone and the entire staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend this venue!!!!

Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is a fantastic venue to have your wedding. We were very pleased with the service, beautiful scenery, and overall had a wonderful time. Simone, Shawnee's wedding sales manager, is top-notch and very fun and pleasant to work with. She made our experience one to treasure for a lifetime. The rooms at Shawnee are comfortable and rustic, with a very at-home feel. The views of the Delaware River are breathtaking, and if your ceremony/cocktail hour is outside, you will be very pleased. We also utilized the taproom, which was a fun hangout for guests, and the River Sanctuary is a gorgeous place for a rehearsal dinner. My husband and I are extremely happy we went with Shawnee as our venue!!!

Our wedding at Shawnee was completely perfect. We received nothing but compliments from our guests. From the beginning of the process, Simone was an angel. She kept my anxious mind very at peace, telling that anything we wanted was possible. We were allowed to decorate as much as we wanted in the grand ballroom, (which was already beautiful to begin with), which was a great surprise because many venues were against hanging lights and things of that matter. The actual ceremony itself was on the porch due to rain, but to be honest I think the porch wedding made the whole wedding even more beautiful. The food was really great, all of our guests were extremely pleased. The chef was completely flexible with choice options. Overall, everything was perfect and it was a fairytale day for me.

In general, we were very pleased with our Shawnee Inn wedding. Our only complaint was that with two other weddings going on that day and one at nearly the same time as ours, Simone had to spread herself very thin.
We couldn't find her when we wanted to thank her and her intern and tip Simone.

Look no further for your perfect wedding/reception venue. You absolutely cannot beat all that you get from Shawnee Inn for the price that you pay.
First off, the location is gorgeous. The inn sits along the Delaware River with a beautiful outdoor location for weddings. But a big plus for me was the alternate location in case of rain. It is a lovely veranda on the front of the building that has a view of the property and the river. So many venues I looked at had an extremely poor rainy day option. It was so important to me that my alternative be just as fantastic as the outdoor sunny day option. And thank goodness I found Shawnee because it poured all day and we still had a beautiful outdoor wedding on the veranda.
That's not even the best part! Simone, their wedding specialist, is a huge perk that comes with having a wedding at Shawnee. From the first conversation with Simone she was very accommodating, helpful, attentive, and responsive all while being very calm and professional. She’s the perfect person to have as a wedding coordinator. No matter what happened, (including the florist getting into a car accident on the way to Shawnee and being late) she was cool, calm, collective and assured me that it was going to be fine. And everything was better than fine, it was superb! She's a wedding rockstar!
Everything else was awesome too. The reception room we were in was beautiful and the perfect size for our small wedding, the food was great, and the staff was extremely courteous. I honestly have never in my life received the kind of service my husband and I got at our reception. They were there as soon as we needed or wanted anything, sometimes before we even realized it!
Since the wedding I have gotten nothing but complements from all of my friends and family about Shawnee and how beautiful they thought everything was. I cannot say enough about how great Shawnee and Simone are and I know I could not have picked a more outstanding venue to have my wedding.

My husband and I walked away from our wedding with a feeling of perfection! The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort was a beautiful backdrop for our amazing wedding. Simone, the wedding coordinator, was in touch with us from the day we booked the venue. She walked us through the entire year. We had so many questions that she was always happy to answer. She also guided us to add details to personalize our entire weekend; like a bonfire instead of a rehearsal dinner and changing the cocktail hour menu to fit our needs. I highly recommend Shawnee if you are looking for a peaceful setting that will allow your guests to enjoy the experience just as much as the bride and groom. So many of our guests told us they can't wait to go back and visit Shawnee to celebrate their own special events!

We had our wedding this past weekend at Shawnee Inn and it was amazing! The staff was punctual and courteous - even to the point where the catering manager made sure the groom and I remembered to eat and kept our food warm for us. Our wedding guests had a great time and we had nothing but compliments. The fall colors matched our wedding colors perfectly and everything was simply beautiful.

Simone Colon truly is the BEST wedding coordinator. She made sure everything was in the correct place and set up everything for us the day of the wedding - leaving less stress on the bride for sure. Any changes that needed to be made, Simone was quick to respond. She was helpful and gave us suggestions for things we may have forgotten and helped us come up with solutions to make sure the wedding weekend was successful. I couldn't have asked for a more memorable or better celebration.

I remember driving down the driveway of the Shawnee for our initial appointment and the feeling of "this is the place" overwhelming me. We had been to quite a few venues and I never got that feeling until we arrived at the Shawnee. Then we met Simone and the deal was sealed. She was so easygoing and attentive to our wants and gave detailed explanations of everything....I could go on and on but I would never be able to convey how great she is at her job! Throughout the entire process she was there for us, answering questions, reassuring us, and making the entire process what it should be- enjoyable and memorable and happy. She made me feel so special and she made sure everything went smoothly from beginning to end. You get more than a wedding reception when you book at the Shawnee, you get the experience of a lifetime! The Inn provided the perfect backdrop to a perfect day and my guests still talk about how perfect our wedding was - 4 years later!!!

This is a great place to have your wedding or event. Enjoy beautiful scenery on the Delaware River in the Poconos. It has everything you could need right there. Nice accommodations, along with Golf course. The staff here is great! Very friendly and attentive. I didn't have to worry about anything with their great wedding coordinator Simone. Anything I needed was taken care of. We received so many compliments on the staff and the beauty of the venue. The food was excellent and we couldn't have found a better value for everything we got with what they had to offer. It was a picture perfect day and Shawnee just helped enhance it. It completed the picture I had in my head. I find this place completely charming.

We are beyond thrilled that we chose this location to have our outdoor tent wedding. Their prices are phenomenal compared to other venues! Simone was fantastic and made my wedding day perfect especially helping with the coordination of colors and even finding us brown lanterns for inside of the tent. The food was awesome (they grow their own veggies and brew their own beer)! There were only 2 flaws for our big day... 1. they should really have a waitress with the appetizers during cocktail hour available for the bridal party and bride and groom. We missed out on all of the really cool apps that we had picked out because we were taking photos. 2. The hotel did not hand out the favor bags i had made for each guest staying at the resort. I went to great lengths to make sure everyone was accounted for, a lot of back and forth with the hotel, and they did not hand out our bags to everyone that was on the list... we were leftover with 25 bags filled with wine and favors from us... we had to hand them out randomly at the brunch the next day. Other than that the grounds were beautiful and the day was made perfect!

My Husband and I love to go snowboarding so last year (Jan 2010) we decided to go some where different and we stayed at The Shawnee Inn. We fell in love with its charm instantly. We knew that our Wedding would have to be there. Working with Simone on the details and arrangements for our Wedding was amazing. She is such a wonderful person with amazing ideas and a love for her job. We had our wedding on a Sunday which was also Father's Day. We arrived early on Saturday, our rooms were ready as soon as we arrived. All of the staff couldn't be nicer with helping with our bags and all the boxes I brought for the wedding. Our wedding was so much fun, we couldn't have have asked for anything better, we heard the most wonderful comments from our family and friends about the food and service and the place it self. We even have about 3 couples that want to plan their wedding at The Shawnee Inn in the future. It was wonderful to have our Ceremony and Reception in one place it just made the day more perfect. I wouldn't have changed anything about our day!

We had an unforgettable wedding week at Shawnee Inn. It was fantastic! Simone, the wedding coordinator and sales manager was beyond amazing. She did everything with a smile and no matter how difficult the request was, she was able to make it happen. The setting at the Shawnee in was so beautiful, we had our ceremony in the pavilion followed by our reception in one of the halls in the first floor. Everything was gorgeous. Chef G was able to work with us on our menu and create fantastic options for Indians,Americans and Canadians. The front desk was tremendous with all of our groups crazy requests. Usmand was there every step of the way to make sure that everything went as planned. Hair/Makeup/Bar/Spa everything was amazing and truly made our experience never to be forgotten. Hands down I would say I could have never chosen a better location!

My husband and I visited multiple sites in the Poconos and ended up choosing Shawnee first and foremost because of the professional and courteous staff. The added benefits were the beautiful ceremony site along the river (and we got married in the rain and it was still perfect), the flexibility of the staff to make our day truly unique to our personalities and preferences, the quality of the food, the beautiful inn (celebrating its 100 year anniversary) and the conveniece of having everything on site from the spa, hair salon and golf to all we needed for the wedding. It was truly perfection! I strongly, strongly recommend the Shawnee Inn!

She handles everything the day of, so you can relax and enjoy your day! I truly recommend the salon at Shawnee, the girls are wonderful and the prices are lower than I expected. We booked out the salon for the morning, had breakfast there and enjoyed getting done together! The hotel rooms are a little small, so I recommend upgrading to a suite (mine was tremendous!). Everyone at the resort was wonderful - they were all so happy for us! I have nothing bad to say about the Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort!

My dream wedding came true at this establishment!!! Simone was fantastic in all aspects. She helped coordinate the linens, the table layout, menu, any special requests and more. She also helped run us through the rehearsal and get everyone lined up fro the processional! The Shawnee Inn is an older resort but with that comes character and history. No two rooms are alike. The Waring room (where my reception was held) was perfect! There was a fireplace, dancefloor, and built in bar. The food was superb as well as the service. And this coming from a bride and groom whom both have worked in the catering industry. Everyone from the front desk to security were accomodating. And the winter package--what a deal! The beauty of a winter wedding in the poconos for half the price--what more could you ask for. And the package included my wedding cake (which was phenomenal), a champagne toast, a complimentary room for me and the groom and more. We couldn't be happier...it was the wedding of our dreams.

The Shawnee Inn is a beautiful venue for a Poconos wedding. The staff is helpful and flexible. Everyone was very nice and welcoming. The grounds are kept up well, although some things are a little dated looking, it overall is beautiful.

The only negative aspect was that the wedding specialist did not seem to know what our plan was. She was late to the rehearsal and asked many questions during the rehearsal that should have been taken care of before, which caused confusion and frustration for the officiant trying to run the rehearsal. She also forgot to set up the reception room as promised which left the mother of the bride to find a maintenance person and ask to have the tables and chairs placed. It was a good thing our wedding party was very organized. However, Simone is very sweet and flexible. She recommended a great DJ and told us her opinions on various topics to make sure our guests would be happy.

The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort responded with the following comments:

Thank you so very much for your review. I wish this would have not come through as a “private user” so I could relive the evening and know exactly what you are referring to.
The Inn is truly a magical place and offers the most beautiful ceremony sights and wedding receptions. This is one of the reasons why we host many wedding ceremonies
overlooking the Delaware River, indoor and outdoor receptions.

I am sorry that I didn't meet your expectations. Having coordinated over 1000 weddings, I consider myself a seasoned professional, and I apologize for the missteps that seemed to have occurred.
Most couples like to rehearse the night before the wedding. Bride and Groom are full of expectations, emotions and so are family members and friends.
During this rehearsal changes are made, new questions arise and in an attempt to not make any excuses, it was not my intention to frustrate the officiant.

I am glad you enjoyed your DJ and your guests were happy. I hope you walked away from the Inn and felt the same way.

I wish you a wonderful life together …

All my very best,

Simone

I'm actually kind of surprised to see the other ratings on here for this venue and how high they are. To be fair, our actual wedding day was wonderful. There were many people that work at the Inn that made our day special and we were happy in the end. But leading up to that day we doubted our decision many times and the days leading up to our wedding were very stressful because so many details were overlooked by the staff and our wedding coordinator. I don't consider myself a very organized person but I felt like I had to go above and beyond in my organization because frankly, the wedding coordinator never had it together. We had a lot of details that be brought in but we provided them all and they were never respected or organized by the staff. Frankly, on your wedding day shouldn't you be able to have what you want, not just the generic package they provide?
We had a large amount of people stay the night before the wedding and almost everyone had problems checking in or out or with booking up to arrival. We had a lot of services that we had asked for (and put in our contract and paid for) before arrival and many of them were not honored. We were embarrassed over and over because our friends kept running into customer service difficulties.

We booked this venue 14 months before our date and experienced lack of communication for all 14 months. I would send an email with 4 questions and every time, only 1-2 of them would be answered. When important dates (like payment dates in our contract) would come and go, I would reach out and the response was always "oh sure you can send money" or something equally casual. I felt like I had to babysit every step of the way. This is the last thing I wanted to have to do from over an hour away where I live.

There are lots of details I can harp on but why bother? We were pleased with the food, the setting, the bar and the rooms/cabins that we rented. We found the general manager responsive and kind. Our wedding guests were none the wiser of our stresses. I only wish we came away with a happy review rather than feeling like we survived an ordeal unscathed.
