Kate- Mother of the Bride

My husband and I just had our wedding this past Saturday at the Old Lantern and we keep telling each other- Everything just happened so fast! I really do wish we could go back and re-live the experience. Everything was amazing, from decor, food, location and staff. It is the perfect space, with 200 people for our reception, everyone was comfortably seated as well as a huge dance floor and bar area. The decor was beautiful, we went with the rustic barn theme with burlap and lanterns on the tables as well as roses. The food was incredible, everyone said how everything was cooked to perfection with fresh ingredients. The staff was amazing as well, anything we needed was catered to. It was just an amazing experience and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend the most wonderful day of their lives. Thank you to everyone who took care of us, we truly felt like royalty.

Celine & Benjamin

We want to thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your help that went into literally the most perfect day we ever could have imagined. Our guests keep letting us know how utterly impressed they were with your site. Everything went above and beyond our expectations: you guys have a first class operation from top to bottom!  The food was unbelievable. I could eat the gratin all day long -- everything was so delicious! Our event planner had to deal with our crazy ideas and general lack of knowledge about anything, but always found a way to not just calm us down, but make us think we were always ahead of the game! She was AMAZING to us, and the Old Lantern is really lucky to have her. Everything went off without a hitch, and we really have her to thank to help get us there. We couldn't be more happy with our entire experience, so thank you!! Our event coordinator probably was pretty tired of us and our guests by the end of the night, but worked so so so hard for us! We both were aware of how many things were handled behind the scenes so we didn't have a care in the world on Saturday! Her service on Saturday was top notch, as was the rest of your staff. Give that guy bartender of the year award for us: he was a champ from John's first minute on site early Saturday afternoon!  We will glow about your venue with any website you want. Vermont is an amazingly special place for us -- you guys all made it a special place to our friends and family, most of whom we're not from around here. For that, we're so grateful!  Thanks for everything : we'll never forget our day because of all of you!

Thank you for all you did to make Cindy & Bruce's day truly magical. It was a pure pleasure to meet you and work with you for the day


Thank you very much for everything you did to make my son, Jason & his new bride, Josilyn's wedding such a fun, wonderful, perfect event. My introduction to you was watching you & Josilyn decide that their wedding would have to be inside...she became visibly more relaxed and without a moments hesitation you reassured her that if it stopped raining, you would spread a tablecloth on the ground so that her dress would stay clean for pictures. I knew at that moment that you were a perfect fit for Jason & Josilyn! The facility was perfect. They were able to decorate it just the way they wanted to with ...The food was delicious, the music & dancing a blast. But the thing I appreciate is the way you directed the day with such warmth, kindness & respect toward everyone- the guests, wedding party and bride & groom. You were calm decisive, thoughtful and so perceptive about what would help things go smoothly at any moment in time....Jason & Josilyn did an amazing job planning all the details of their wedding and there's no doubt that it was your thoughtful caring attention to detail & family relationships that made their wedding the joyful, loving, fun event they hoped & dreamed it would be. Thank you, with gratitude always,

Thank you for the support we received on our wedding day. All hte guests thought the space was beautiful and had a great time. Somer are still talking about the food! Thank you again for making our day a success!

Jeremy & Kayla

Thank you! The Old Lantern was beautiful, the Inn comfortable and fun, the food delicious! We had an amazing day (and weekend) and will always remember our time there with affection. Hope all is well and best of luck in the future.

Andrea & Nolan

Oh my goodness it has almost been a week since the wedding but I cant stop thinking about how perfect the entire weekend was and a large part of that is because you and Roland.  I was a nervous wreck (if you couldnt tell) when we got to the Inn on Friday afternoon but as soon as we got there until we left on Sunday everything was incredible.  The little extras you did, such as the wine on Friday night, the champagne before the ceremony and the way you staged the Bridal suit the night of the wedding were perfect.  Not to mention how smoothly everything went all day on Saturday at the actual Old Lantern.  When I walked in to the reception everything was exactly the way I wanted it to be.  We had an amazing weekend and so did everyone we have talked to since.
It was SO great to work with you over the past year!  I think our personalities worked well together :)  The only problem now is that it is all over!

John and Lynne

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding at the Old Lantern the perfect day for us. The Old Lantern was the first place we visited to look at wedding venues and even after looking several other places, we knew it was right. From the first wine tasting we attended, you were friendly, helpful and you made us feel like our wedding was the only one happening all year. Most of our guests were from out of state and you helped us give them them the pure VT experience that we were looking for. We appreciate Lisa's upbeat attitude, ability to keep on schedule, and talented ability to decorate the tables in a tasteful way. Roland's food was fresh and suited everyone's tastebuds. We have extremely happy memories of our day at the Old Lantern....Thank you so much,
