  • We held our wedding at the Raritan Inn and we are SO glad we did! From the beginning of our search, Marcia was super helpful in answering questions, allowing us to tour the premises, and providing insight into any wedding issues that we had. We were able to use the Inn for the whole weekend, which made the rehearsal dinner and wedding so wonderfully connected. Our ceremony took place outside, next to a small river. It was about a 4 minute walk from away from the barn and tent. It was absolutely perfect. The tent had our reception seating, and the barn was reserved for dancing and drinks! Marcia even had beautiful, dark wood farm tables that we were able to use, as well as a bunch of leftover decorations that we could use. We were able to use the Inn to get ready in, which made it so nice for our friends and family. During our reception we even had a fire pit with s'mores that Marcia helped us light!! People are still telling us a month later about how amazing and beautiful the venue wa... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the Inn just about 2 weeks ago and I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue. The moment my fiancé (at the time) and I went to see the Inn, we both knew instantly that it was the place we wanted to be married. We were able to have our wedding party stay at the Inn with us for the weekend and everyone LOVED it. Marcia and Bill were so accommodating and were there before and after the actual wedding to make sure everything was okay and we had what we needed. On top of it, the breakfast they provided to us was phenomenal. My husband and I were the first of our friends to get married and we keep saying that our wedding is going to be hard to top--given the venue and other services we had!

  • John is a treasure! He is such an easy person to work with. He made our wedding day go seamlessly and was always available for questions, concerns and suggestions. Whenever there was a need John was right there to take care of it. The Raritan Inn in Califon is the perfect outdoor venue. All our guests felt at home and welcomed. Thank you so much John and The Raritan Inn for giving us a day we will always remember. We look forward to our next stay in the Inn.

  • My bridal party rented out the Inn for the entire weekend, and it went as perfectly as could be. The venue is gorgeous, and even though it rained heavily the day before, the whole team was out making sure that my ceremony area down by the river was perfectly dry and cleaned up by the next afternoon. Breakfasts were delicious each day, and the rooms were perfect. My pictures turned out completely gorgeous, entirely due to this location and some very lucky weather :-)

  • This was the PERFECT place to have our wedding. The Inn and the barn were exactly what we were looking for to hold our "rustic" wedding. The innkeeper, John, always went above and beyond to make sure the entire day went smoothly. He is such an amazing person and I'm SO glad he was such a major part of our big day. We had originally planned to have our ceremony by the river, but the rain forced us to move it into the barn. Looking back on the day, I'm kind of glad it worked out the way it did. All of our guests loved the Barn and the grounds at the Inn. I'm very glad we picked The Raritan Inn for our wedding.

  • We fell in love with the Raritan Inn when we first visited it in the Spring. It was exactly what we were looking for, a non-traditional venue that had character, warmth, charm and endless possibilities for our Fall 2011 wedding. As our wedding weekend rapidly approached, both the owner Marcia and Innkeeper John helped answer ALL of our questions (and we often asked the same question 2-3 times!) and concerns, particularly about the logistics of the weekend. We were able to visit the Inn throughout our planning process in order to help us more fully envision our day and also to ensure that we had the correct measurements etc for our DIY decorations and projects. The weekend of our wedding, John, the Innkeeper was indispensible – helping with the delivery of some of our rentals, checking our Inn guests in, and problem solving some last minute details that we overlooked in the planning process. The guests that stayed at the Inn with us were blown away by the beauty and character of t... Read more

  • Our wedding was earlier this year (July 2011). The weather was perfect for our outdoor tented venue. We couldn't have imagined a more exceptional day. Everyone at Raritan Inn was right on point and paid close attention to the small details. If you are looking for a simple & understated wedding that will blow your guests away, this is the perfect place! I still have people telling me how beautiful everything was and some people even exclaimed, this is the best wedding I've have ever been to!"

  • John, the innkeeper, is wonderful and makes you feel like family. Use of the inn is from Friday afternoon through Sunday, which includes the 5 rooms. I had our stylist come to us in the morning which was great with the fantastic breakfast John and his staff prepared. You can elect to have your rehearsal dinner on the grounds, which we did not. We also did not have our actual wedding ceremony there, as we wanted to be in a church. We had a tent put up and used the barn in our cocktail hour. Everyone loved the venue and the whole look. However, the issue was the value. The owners have a charge, on top of the $6500 for the venue, based on number of guests. Considering vendors provide chairs and food and service for the guests and the Inn is just the location, this is absurd. The rationale was "wear and tear on the grounds". Can't part of that $6500 go towards that? Also, they now require that the tent come down on Sunday morning before noon. Nothing like having an awesome wedding then bei... Read more

  • It is a really beautiful property and really offered one-stop shopping. This is terms of the vendors they work with in the area, who were able to take care of everything (from the food to the rental chairs, table and tent) to the fact that the wedding, reception and lodging is all on-site. The only draw-back about this location is that the party has to stop at 9 due to noise limitations set forth by the town. Other than that, very lovely experience.
