We have done family style receptions but we do not recommend them due to space limitations with placing so many food dishes on the tables.
Our Wedding Menus start at $49 per person. We also have a $53 and $57 menu. Each menu allows for two entrees, one starch, one vegetable, salad, rolls, and butter. You can mix and match off of two menus versus having to choose two entrees off of the same menu. The menus are based on a buffet. There is a $2 per plate charge for a plated dinner.
Although you ultimately decide how your wedding day takes place, we suggest having your cocktail reception in a different location than the dinner reception. We recommend hosting the cocktail reception in the Birches Dining Room with its adjacent pub and flagstone patio. Cocktail receptions typically last for 1 to 1 1/2 hours but this is your decision.
Unlike many venues, Whitney’s inn does not require that a rehearsal dinner or welcome reception take place with us. However, we do offer menus starting at $20 per person for this and would be happy to host this event as well. We also offer a picnic area and dining room which are great options for hosting a rehearsal dinner during the warmer months.

Our Event Menu includes a selection of both stationary and passed hors d’oeuvres. The cost of these are not included in the per plate charge and the cost is in the $600-$1,000 range. It is recommended to offer 1-2 stationary hors d’oeuvres and 3-4 passed hors d’oeuvres with 4-6 pieces of passed items suggested per guest. There is not a minimum amount required for hors d’oeuvres.

Whitney’s Inn provides all catering services for food and beverage for weddings and our food and beverage license does not allow for outside catering. The one exception to this is desserts, such as a wedding cake, cupcakes, dessert stations, etc. Whitney’s inn can provide these but wedding couples can bring in their own desserts.
Whitney’s Inn offers 27 guestrooms but for larger weddings, this may not be enough rooms to lodge all of your guests. We also offer the Inn at Jackson, our sister property, just 2 miles from Whitney’s Inn and is a 14 guestroom bed and breakfast. We will reserve as many of these rooms as you like based on availability as a courtesy. You do not need to guarantee these rooms. We can also help you with other lodging options available nearby.
You may assign as many or as few guestrooms to individual guests as you would like. Guests can be assigned a room but we still need them to call to make their reservation and provide a credit card
The 16 guestrooms in the main inn are all based on double occupancy. The cottages and suites are based on quad occupancy. There is a $15 per guest, per night charge for guests exceeding the max occupancy.
We offer five different styles lodging at the inn. The smallest rooms in the main inn are the Standard Queens. A step up is the Classic room which offers more sitting room than the standard. There are five each of these two style rooms and two of the Classic rooms are just off the main parking lot and are good for guests who can’t handle steps. There are six Luxury King rooms, which are the largest rooms in the main inn and these rooms also have coffee makers, mini fridges, and DVD players. There are three cottages, the Rooftop Cottage, which is on the third floor of the inn, and two standalone cottages. Lastly, there is Liftline Lodge, which houses eight two-room suites. The cottages and suites have gas fireplaces, mini fridges, coffee makers, and microwave ovens.

If it appears that you will not be able fulfill your room guarantee, let us know and we will make every attempt to fill these empty rooms with outside guests. We are usually successful in doing this and you are not required to cover the cost of these rooms if they are booked.
