February 2024  | Wedding

We just hosted our daughter’s wedding at Middlebury Inn. It was beautiful. The staff at the inn, and in particular the wedding coordinator, Rachael, did an incredible job to make the wedding perfect. We had 53 people attending the wedding and hosted them for a Friday night buffet as well as the Saturday wedding. The wedding ceremony was held in front of the gorgeous fireplace with cushioned, antique style chairs. We had a cocktail hour in the tavern as the staff transformed the room into the most perfect reception room I’ve ever seen. The space for the wedding was elegant and included a dance floor, white twinkle lights, tulle, and linen covered tables; we added the gold stars and a disco light. The food was delicious and definitely high end. The bride and groom wanted special “signature” cocktails served at the reception and it was no problem at all for the bartenders. The wedding coordinator made sure the event ran smoothly and on time. There is not a single thing we would change. I highly recommend the Middlebury Inn for a wedding.

We held my parent’s 55th wedding anniversary at Middlebury Inn. We were lucky to take advantage of a cancellation and they were wonderful to work with to arrange the event on short notice. The catering was superb, food delicious, and staff professional and helpful.

Hi Rachael,

Many thanks for hosting such a pleasant event last evening. 

Your special effort in laying out such a feast of such a top class variety of edibles was so appreciated and a great example of what you produce for other functions.

Middlebury Inn is a class act and Addison County  Chamber of Commerce members were very impressed.

Hi Rachael,

We would highly recommend the Middlebury Inn for events including catering. The room was perfectly set-up, the staff was very attentive, & the food and drinks were delicious! Rachel & team were easy to work with, had effective communication, and were highly responsive to our questions and needs. It is a very unique property that you won’t find anywhere else.

Hi Rachael,

I wanted to reach out and express my thanks to you and the rest of the Middlebury Inn staff for helping us host such a beautiful bridal shower. The bride and all the guests thought the shower was beautiful and really enjoyed themselves. Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put in to make this event possible!

From start to finish the middlebury inn was amazing, the planning process was made easier with the event planner who was always helpful, thoughtful and prompt with her replies. The service at the Inn was amazing, the staff was friendly, the food was delicious and having multiple guests stay in the same place as the wedding was an easy experience. We were able to have a small wedding without feeling like we were missing anything. The banquet room was beautiful! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding here in January 2023. After looking throughout Vermont over several months for a beautiful location within our budget, we were so happy to find the Middlebury Inn. After our first visit to the space with Rachael, the Events Manager at the Inn, we immediately felt comfortable and supported in arranging and planning for the big day. All our questions were quickly answered and the whole team went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable over the wedding weekend. The food was great (so many of our guests commented after that it was the best food that they ever had at a wedding) and the space was decorated beautifully for our cozy winter wedding. We definitely would recommend to any of our friends and family who wanted to book an intimate ceremony and celebration in a beautiful Vermont location.

We hosted a 90th Birthday party for my mother and from beginning to end it was great. The staff was wonderful to work with, very helpful and responsive. The room was very pretty, the food was great, there was a great selection of drinks … My mom had a great time. I wouldn’t hesitate to have an event there again

We had our wedding locally in Shoreham, VT and had all our guests stay at the Middlebury Inn. We also had our rehearsal dinner in one of the dining rooms at the inn.

The rooms were charming and very clean, and all our guests got to enjoy a unique Vermont experience. The staff for the rehearsal dinner were very friendly and helpful and the food was excellent.
We coordinated everything with Rachael, the sale and events manager. She was such a great help setting up our room block, organizing the rehearsal dinner, helping us develop the menu, and accommodating our different requests.
We will recommend this to all our friends staying in the area.

I hosted a private event at the Middlebury in that turned into be more work than I was anticipating. Without hesitation, the hotel staff steeped up to help me accomplish the end goal of the event. I can’t say enough good things about the staff of this hotel. They were hands down the most accommodating hotel staff that I have ever encountered. On top of that, they have an awesome restaurant with a great breakfast wrap. Its located right in the heart of town and is walkable to anywhere in town. Highly recommend booking your event AND your stay with the Middlebury in. You will not be disappointed.

Was here for a wedding and it’s a gorgeous property, and the staff were very friendly. I definitely enjoyed the touch of having all Woodchuck Cider available!

We have wanted to reach out and express to you and your team how awesome our wedding was and how

everyone that was there had a fabulous time, they raved about the food, and all the details! In May, one of our dear friends, Shari, suddenly passed away and my mom had a stroke the same week. We lost my mom in August. Our Wedding was the last outing both Shari and my mom had attended. We have so many great memories! Again, your entire team made us feel special as well as our family, and friends.

Many, many, thanks!

Called to ask a few questions about the pricing and accommodations. The lady on the phone was so informative and very sweet.

I used the Middlebury Inn as my home base for a full wedding weekend this past September (Friday/Saturday/Sunday events). The majority of the wedding guests were from out of town, so we recommended that they all get rooms at the Middlebury Inn so that we were all centrally located. I found the staff at the Inn to be professional, flexible, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that my wedding weekend went off without a hitch. Many of my out-of-town relatives commented on how much they enjoyed staying at the Inn – it has rustic charm with all of the amenities that folks usually expect at larger hotel chains. Although our wedding was not located at the Inn itself, we hosted a relaxed after-party there, as well as a breakfast. I highly recommend the Middlebury Inn!

I got married at the Middlebury Inn on September 1st and I have to say Michaela was an amazing coordinator and helped us make our vision come to life. She was there to answer all of my questions and gave great suggestions as well. The food service was excellent. At breakfast the day after the wedding the staff was complimenting us on what a fun wedding it was! I love this Inn and this town, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to have an intimate wedding at a beautiful historic inn :-).

I had my wedding here on December 3rd and it was amazing. The entire Inn was decked out for Christmas including the room we were married in, the guest rooms were beautiful, the food was wonderful-especially the breakfast buffet in the morning which I loved more than my husband for about 25 minutes… If you are planning a Christmas wedding than this is the place, it was gorgeous.

Boucher | Willis Wedding, August 2014
Michaela, Thank you so much for all of your help to make the day memorable for everyone that joined us! Rob and I had such a wonderful time and were very pleased with the food and service provided. Everyone loved the Inn and commented on how beautiful the room looked. One of the guest told my mother on a later date that it was the nicest wedding / reception he had been to! Thanks again for everything! Our memories of that day will always be that it was perfect.

We did not have the ceremony at the Inn, but the Inn did host our cocktail hour and dinner reception. Michaela was wonderful to work with. The Inn is beautiful and romantic, the staff was attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic and all of the guests had a great time. So pleased with the results.

This is a great place to stay when looking at Middlebury College or just on a visit to Vermont. I was thrilled to come back here, especially with a Groupon. The inn upgraded our room; the bathroom was huge! The innkeeper could not have been more helpful even when I realized I had forgotten to print the Groupon. We were so tired when we arrived after leaving Boston mid- afternoon, so we had dinner in the inn. It was delicious! We devoured the baked brie and enjoyed our entrees, mushroom raviolis and salmon. Cannot wait to return!

“Relaxing and Delicious”

We spent one wonderful evening at the Inn with dinner in the Morgan’s Tavern. Menu was full of fresh, well prepared and presented offerings. Service was very friendly and the staff was alert but not hovering. We received a room upgrade upon check in and the room was very comfortable and clean. The Inn is 186 years old but the amenities are very up to date. We also enjoyed the afternoon tea in the lobby which was a nice way to relax after a long drive through the mountains. I tried the Breadloaf French Toast with fresh maple syrup for breakfast while looking out at the snow swirling around the common. This is a relaxing place to stay if you are in the area.

No, it’s not Downton Abbey in Middlebury. It’s better. You’ll have all the charm, comfort, and location of a piece of American history and won’t have to hire the staff or keep the damp away from the brick.
