  • Full disclosure: This feedback is in consideration of a significant shift in the banquet management when Heather Cramer left Smithville, or almost all of these would have been closer to 1-2. Kyle and Ashley were amazing every step of the way. Because of them, I would recommend Smithville Inn to anyone who asks.

  • My husband and I got married at Smithville Inn a little over a month ago and we cannot say enough good things about it. We received so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was, how good the food was, and how quaint Smithville was. We couldn't have picked a more perfect place! Everyone at the Inn was so helpful in our planning answering every question or concern promptly and on the day every attendant was so attentive to everyone's needs and made sure my husband and I had food and drinks. I didn't get a chance to eat any of the cake during the reception so they sent us back with a container so we could enjoy it too. I am so happy we chose Smithville Inn as our venue and look forward to coming back to visit!

  • Discovering the Smithville Inn was, by far, the best part of celebrating our wedding. We wanted a rustic – but not isolated – location. Taking a referral from a friend, we did some research and paid the Smithville Inn a visit, and ultimately fell in love with everything the location had to offer! We live in northern New Jersey, and a major concern of ours was that our guests would be traveling quite a distance, but because Historic Smithville is full of shops and things to do, we knew this would ease our worries; Smithville literally has something for just about everybody, and our guests came not just to be there for us, but to make a great day out of their visit. Ashley and Kyle, our wedding and banquet coordinators, were beyond outstanding. They made our day come together and helped us every step of the way – without them, I don’t think we would have had such a great experience. The Smithville Inn’s quality of food and services were excellent, and the venue itself was fully... Read more

  • I would recommend The Smithville Inn to anyone looking for a flexible and beautiful wedding venue! We were able to create the wedding of our dreams, with the help of Heather Cramer and the rest of The Smithville Inn crew, and it was truly the best day ever! Thanks so much for all your help and for making sure everything went smoothly. They know what they're doing and the area around the Inn has definitely seen many many weddings. If you're looking for a fairly hassle-free wedding with little-to-no travel, consider this venue.

  • What can I say except thank you for making our event so truly magical! Having our wedding at the Smithville Inn during the Christmas season made it all the better, but truly the atmosphere, food, friendly people and community feeling we had during our planning and the event itself was just incredible! Everyone welcomed us like we were family gathering together for dinner. The displays of food were appetizing, the decor was beautlful, rooms had wonderful lighting, comfy chairs and a warm ambiance. Ashley and Kyle worked with us on every aspect so everything went just as planned. Truly the entire event exceeded our expectations, and for my first time groom, who didn't know what to expect, he was at ease and confident that we could just relax and let it all happen. Three months later, our family and friends are still raving about our wedding day, and we could not be happier with our decision to have our wedding at the Smithville Inn!!! Thanks to everyone who made it so magical for ... Read more

  • It has been a year since I was married at Smithville Inn. I have recommended this venue to my friends. Heather was the best to work with. She was so efficient, answered my questions and had great suggestions. I look back on my beautiful day and my gorgeous pictures taken in the village and I am so glad I made the decision to get married at the Smithville Inn. My guests still comment on what a great venue it was.

  • My husband and I got married on 10/2/15 at The Smithville Inn and my experience was nothing short of phenomenal. From the second we booked our appointment to view the venue, we were made to feel like the most special people in the world. The venue itself is amazing. It is the perfect rustic and shabby chic venue. The shops at The Smithville Inn add a charming element for your guests. The outdoor ceremony area is absolutely beautiful no matter what time of year. The reception room is rustic, warm and charming. I wanted to avoid a country club look and this venue was absolutely perfect. I really don't even know where to start in writing this review because everything was so incredibly perfect, so I supposed I will start with our wedding coordinator, Heather Cramer. Heather is seriously the BEST. She answered every phone call, e-mail and message in a timely manner {and believe me, there were a TON of those}. She went above and beyond to make sure that our entire planning process and we... Read more

  • We recently got married at the Smithville Inn and we could both honestly say it was the best day of our lives. As expected, we were stressing out a lot prior to the wedding but the entire day seemed to run effortlessly. Everything went according to plan due to the extreme attentiveness shown by the Smithville Inn staff. Heather and her staff were extremely helpful from the start of the process all the way through the end of our wedding night. In addition to the impeccable service, the food and atmosphere were incredible. I would highly recommend putting the Smithville Inn on your list of venues to visit while researching in the area. You won’t be disappointed!

  • How can I even begin to describe the experience that I had with Heather and the Smithville Inn!? From the moment we met with Heather she was so friendly and helpful I knew this would be a fantastic experience. We had always known that we wanted to get married at Smithville Inn. From its rustic setting, friendly staff, beautiful grounds both inside and out, gorgeous gardens, and delicious food this venue is truly unique and worth every penny! Heather was awesome!!! She always kept in touch with us, helped us with any questions along the way and pretty much gave us the freedom to have the most beautiful and unforgettable day of our lives. We had both our ceremony (outside in the BEAUTIFUL garden) cocktail hour and reception here. The staffs attention to detail made me feel like I had no worry in world that day. If you decide to have your wedding or special event at The Smithville Inn you will not be disappointed one bit! Go for a tour today and you will fall in love!!!!

  • My husband and I went to Stockton University and would often visit Smithville, Nj so being able to have our wedding at The Smithville Inn was the perfect place. We got engaged in December and got married in July. Since we only had six months to plan our wedding we received a really good price. Heather was wonderful! She was very calming and made sure every detail was how exactly what we wanted. Our guests had nothing but positive comments about the whole evening. We couldn't have asked for a better venue.

  • After visiting the Smithville Inn for the first time, we knew it was the location for our wedding. It was exactly what we wanted, a quaint feel with a rustic building and simple elegance - nothing flashy or over-the-top ballroom. We booked our date on our first visit and not only was it our dream venue, but it had the best pricing of any of the venues we'd visited. Planning the rest of the wedding was a bit of a challenge. E-mail responses usually only contained the answer to one of our list of questions. The tasting options were weird - either April or November in a group, buffet setting. In the end the food was delicious at the tasting and at our wedding so it was okay. When we looked, we were guaranteed that our November 20 wedding would still have fall decorations and that Christmas wouldn't go up until the next week. I followed up on this point about three months before our wedding and that was no longer the case. The garland that was supposed to be on the walls was gone and the ... Read more

  • I had my wedding here Feb 7TH 2015. The venue turned out just beautiful. It was very difficult for me to find a venue that was different and by different i mean not a overdone ballroom. If you are looking for something, historic, rustic, and even slightly country this is the way to go. The reception room is a blank slate with beautiful iron chandeliers and the wood work and wood floors are amazing. We had our ceremony inside and the room we used for that was also just amazing. Great fireplace, just a romantic rustic feel. The food was wonderful. And the service was great. Heather was awsome! The while team did a great job taking care of us. Having our wedding in smithville was just a fun weekend. We had family from all over. And literally partied the whole weekend. It was so much fun. And ppl have not stopped talking about it.
