Wedding Coordination

We will be delighted to assist you in the coordination of guest accommodations, the ceremony, and your reception. There are so many options to make your special day just as you envision. Your ceremony can be performed in our parlor with your grand entrance on our staircase or an outdoor garden setting, with a wooded backdrop.


You may choose to have an intimate reception at the Inn, in our garden, or at a local restaurant.

The Inn’s dining room can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests for a seated meal. The parlor can accommodate a seated meal for up to 20. For a larger guest list we recommend a tent in the garden or a private dining room at one of the local restaurants. You may also consider a buffet or passed appetizers, as the Inn’s veranda, decks and public areas will be open to your guests to mingle.

Food and Drink

A licensed caterer is required for all food and beverages brought onto the property. The service of alcoholic beverages requires a “Limited Special Occasion Permit” as required by North Carolina ABC laws, or your caterer’s license can be used. We expect that you will comply with all NC laws.


To provide your group the level of privacy and service needed for your event, the entire Inn must be reserved. There are six rooms total and each must be reserved for a minimum of two nights whether or not they will be occupied. During most of the year, the rate for Friday and Saturday night is $2120, excluding holiday weekends and autumn weekends.
