  • My overall experience was good. Venue was gorgeous, food was great, planning was easy. There were a few miscommunication problems the day of the wedding. Our vendors never got their meals as they got put downstairs and no one told them, our DJ (who played in between our band) was a guest of the wedding not a vendor and got denied bar service. The bar tender was rude to my husband and my father, he told my husband who had asked for 28 shots (yes all at once for a toast) that he wasn't pouring them, after we had also already purchased an additional $100 bottle of patron on top of our original bar package because it wasn't included in our open bar, that we completely understood but telling the groom you're not pouring his request? Unacceptable. My father asked him for a toothpick and he just responded I have stuff to do. My father is a very nice and respectful person, if he just told him where to find one or that he couldn't help him it would have been fine, but he was rude to the father ... Read more

  • We truly could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The Inn provided a gorgeous back-drop. Every person we met and worked with before and during our wedding was extremely helpful, kind, and accommodating. Our family and friends had a wonderful time and couldn't say enough about the venue and the people. I highly recommend the Smithville Inn.

  • My husband & I initially chose to have our wedding at The Smithville Inn because of the look of the banquet room and the scenic village. We quickly began to appreciate how helpful everyone at The Inn was. From the bartenders in The Tavern to Ashley, our wedding coordinator, everyone went above and beyond to make our day so special. Our guests raved about the food at our reception and one of my guests truly appreciated the bartender who tracked down gluten-free beer for her that night. The quality of service at The Smithville Inn is amazing. We also utilized The Colonial Inn for our accommodations, Fred & Ethel's for our Rehearsal Dinner and Wedding After Party, Sublime Hair Boutique for wedding day hair & make-up, and various village shops to fill our guests' welcome bags - every single business provided quality service. They all speak so highly of each other and work together to create a great experience for their customers. I am so pleased with every single aspect of our wedding week... Read more

  • Ashley Rosenthal was seriously the best when it came to planning our wedding. She legitimately had my back every step of the way. Every question or every little thing I needed she was there to help. The Smithville Inn is absolutely stunning and I am so happy we were able to get married there. Our guests are still raving about how gorgeous everything was! The fact that it's in a historic village just makes it a hundred times more special. I highly recommend getting married here!!! Thank you so much Ashley and the rest of the staff at the Smithville Inn for giving me the wedding of my dreams?

  • We may be biased but our wedding at the Smithville Inn was Ah-MAZING. From our first meeting with Ashley to the actual day of - it was a fabulous experience. First, Ashley and Kyle were professional, easy to work with, and always got back to me very quickly with answers to my questions (and I had a lot of them). Two days before the wedding, the linens arrived and Ashley realized the napkins did not match the table runners at all. She arraigned for the company to provide a few different options for us to choose from and it worked out perfectly. All of our guests raved about the food - we did a brunch style buffet and it was all so tasty (I wish I could have eaten more). By doing the brunch buffet and open bar with limited choices, we really felt like we got a lot for a small price - great tasting food, delicious drinks, and great service. We didn't feel the need to have a lot of decorations as the venue itself is gorgeous with huge windows that let in the bright sunlight. Our day was pe... Read more

  • Ashley and Kyle and the entire Smithville Inn staff were amazing on our wedding day. They were accommodating and flexible in every possible way.

Overall we could not have been happier with our choice :)

  • Ashley and Kyle were such a pleasure to work with from the beginning.. Kyle even ran back to our hotel room when I forgot the grooms ring in the rush out the door! The venue was gorgeous, the food was delicious, we could not have been happier. When my maid of honor and I dropped off a bunch of totes with decorations and gave an "idea" of the vision I had in my head, I was not expecting it to be all I ever dreamed of and more.. the reception room just exuded classy, romantic and winter without being cliché - honestly it was STUNNING! I've heard nothing but rave reviews from EVERYONE that attended the wedding.. couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to have our perfect day! HIGHLY recommend!!

  • Smithville Inn was the ONLY venue myself & Brian looked into, & our breath was taken away from the moment we got there. Everything about this venue is amazing, the view, the scenery, the food, the style. Ashley & Kyle made this experience unforgettable!!! They worked with me and gave me the dream wedding I had always wanted. The night was NOTHING less than perfect. It was a magical night that I truly will never forget. I want to relive my wedding EVERY weekend!

  • Beautiful venue and fantastic food. I didn't know of any issues day of but my team told me that the staff was less responsive than expected. I was also from out of town and felt like the ability to be physically there during planning would have been more helpful.
