  • Old Lystra in is absolutely amazing! Its a beautiful rustic chic venue. They have multiple amazing places for photos so everyone is unique. It ended up raining at my event but they supplied the cutest clear umbrellas. They really thought of everything! The owners of Old Lystra Inn are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I’m so thankful that they opened up there land and home for others to enjoy. If prom was this amazing I can only imagine how wonderful weddings must be! I hope to come to more events here

  • Thanks to the Old Lystra Inn our wedding day was perfect. The venue is so beautiful and perfect. Beth and Tony take meticulous care of the property, are perfect hosts, and make everything seamless. We could not have imagined a more perfect setting for our wedding. I would give them 100 stars if possible.

  • Our wedding at Old Lystra Inn exceeded all expectations we could have possibly had for our big day. The owners- Tony and Beth are phenomenal! Even their sweet daughter offered to help a ton. Beth's right hand (wo)man was amazing, she seriously was like a day of coordinator. She communicated with me all day to ease any worries I might have had. She even fanned me to cool me off while we were doing first touch pictures, Ha! This venue is the most beautiful I've seen. The price point is right in line (almost slightly cheaper) with most venues in the area. However, you get SO MUCH with Old Lystra. For the rehearsal, they allowed us to drop everything off and opened their doors to us. I opted to pay a small fee to allow my 4 bridesmaids and myself to spend the night prior to the wedding day. It was the best decision ever! We woke up in the venue, showered, had a nice home cooked breakfast, and then made our way to the sun room for hair and makeup. ZERO stress! There were so many people behi... Read more

  • I could not have asked for venue owners better than Beth and Tony. They were so incredibly accommodating, flexible, thoughtful, and kind. They really went above and beyond what they needed to do in order to make us happy and at ease and they were so kind and generous to all of our family and guests as well. The house and gardens are so beautiful and it was the perfect place for our wedding. I would 100% recommend Old Lystra to anyone looking for an outdoor wedding venue.

  • The Old Lystra Inn was exactly the venue we were looking for! Beth and Tony are so laid back and made it easy to plan our perfect wedding without having to jump through hoops! Mother Nature threw every obstacle at us that she could and the staff at Old Lystra made it like nothing ever happened after the Carolina Blue skies finally opened up! We are so thankful for everyone at the Old Lystra Inn and would highly recommend to any brides and grooms!

  • I could not have asked for a better venue to have my wedding at . Beth and tony answered any questions I had even if they were small. They set up my wedding exactly how I wanted it ! There daughter even wrote my pick a seat not a side once we got to the venue. Every vendor we choose beth and tony gave us suggestions on and we were so glad we used them . We got so many complements on the venue and how beautiful it was . I had this vision in my head and their venue was it ! It’s a mix of modern farmhouse with the opportunity to have your wedding completely outside .

  • We got married at the Old Lystra Inn in September and it was absolutely perfect. The owners are amazing--warm, accommodating, and so fun. The venue itself is gorgeous and an incredible value. We looked at most of the other venues in the Triangle and fell in love with the Old Lystra Inn immediately. The owners were so much more flexible with us regarding which vendors we could use and allowed us to customize our wedding using the vendors we preferred. In the end everything was even more perfect than we could have imagined and we could not be happier. We absolutely recommend!!!

  • I wish that I was writing this review because I had the most lovely wedding at Old Lystra Inn. Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence came and had other plans for us. Our dreams were absolutely crushed when we had to change venues last minute due to needing an indoor space for our wedding. We did however get the opportunity to work with Tony and Beth throughout the planning process of our wedding so this review reflects the amazing courtesy and care that they provided to us. Although we didn't get to have our event at Old Lystra, I feel that working with people like Tony and Beth are what everyone should look for when deciding on a venue for a wedding. There are tons of beautiful homes, museums, restaurants, etc. that would make a beautiful wedding but not every place has people that are super easy to work with. If you choose Old Lystra you will get just that. Tony and Beth were so amazing. They even took it upon themselves to call vendors to help me find a tent to set up and even looked fo... Read more

  • We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at Old Lystra Inn! We had searched high and low for a venue where we could have an outdoor ceremony, that was in close proximity to Chapel Hill, and that fit within our budget. Old Lystra Inn delivered on all three of these requirements. As soon as we arrived, we were overwhelmed by the natural beauty of the surrounding area and welcoming atmosphere that Beth and Tony have cultivated there. We also loved that the site didn't require many additional rentals - the price included the reception tent, tables and chairs for guests, and access to guest bathrooms. We looked at several other venues that would have required us to rent some or all of these items. The grounds are landscaped in a way that makes it feel as though excessive decorating is unnecessary. Not to mention that there is a beautiful arbor installed on the ceremony site, and chandeliers hanging in the reception tent. On the day of our wedding, the Old Lystra Inn team was incredibly...

  • I could not speak more highly of the Old Lystra Inn. This venue far exceeded our expectations and truly made our wedding day unforgettable. The property consists of a beautiful historic home located just minutes from downtown Chapel Hill. We had guests from all over the world who loved the selection of hotels nearby. The home is perfectly decorated and impeccably clean. And the outdoor landscape is just as classic and timeless as the home itself. What really set this venue apart is the family who owns it. The Pendola family is professional, personable, and truly treated us like family. They were consistently available to answer any questions by phone or email and hosted us for tea and coffee on multiple occasions to help us prepare. Another thing that sets the Old Lystra Inn apart is the ability to choose all of your own vendors. We loved being able to choose the caterer, DJ, etc. So many other venues restrict you to a list of very expensive vendors. In addition, amenities that nor... Read more

  • I have coordinated many weddings and I have never worked at a venue that was this helpful. When the bartender didn't have ice, they provided it, the catering company ran out of trash bags, they provided it, the bride needed transportation at the end of the night and they provided it. This is a family run business and it shows. The owners truly care about the bride/groom. Most venues open the doors and come back to lock up, the owners of Lystra Inn were there helping out and setting tables etc. This venue is beautiful and the Owners are simply amazing!!!!!

  • We could not have asked for a better venue or better hosts. The owners are the kindest people you'll ever meet and they'll do things for you that you won't even realize you'll need done! The inn is beautiful inside and out! Our wedding day was stress-free and could not have been more perfect.
