    Staff was friendly and very accommodating to my requests. Guests thought it was a stunning venue and raved about how good the food was! They also loved the option of being able to stay overnight and plenty of parking for everyone else.

    Very impressed

    The staff were amazing, the food was awesome (we got so many compliments on the menu) and the venue was beautiful. The hotel rooms are an excellent option for out of town guests.
    The only downside was, I did not get many of my decor items back. When I asked about them, I got an apology saying the staff hasn't seen my items.

    Other than that, everything was perfect.

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Elm Hurst Inn. The service we received from Chantal and Erin, the onsite wedding coordinators, was extraordinary. Throughout the entire planning process, I always felt that everything was so well taken care of. The major selling points that made us initially select the Elm Hurst was the incredible food and the easy going flexibility of the staff. It was obvious in communicating with them that they wanted to make anything we envisioned come to life with as much ease as possible. They really took care of everything. The other staff involved with the wedding day - Mike the Banquet manager, Margaret, our personal server, and Sabrina, our bartender, and all the other waitstaff - were all exceptionally friendly, helpful, and on top of everything. Our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to the efforts of everyone at the Elm Hurst Inn. Thank you!

    FH and I wanted to scout out this venue beforehand, so as a surprise for his birthday I booked a one-night stay with a massage for him the following day, and of course added a few romantic touches.

    Everyone was professional, informative, and thorough. Everything went off without a hitch, and DF loved his massage (he'd never been to a spa before, and now he insists on going back there for our anniversary!).

    Venue is very spread out over the grounds, quaint, rustic feel. We decided it might not be the best venue for us because we are having a larger wedding, but if you were to have a 50 person wedding, it would be idyllic.
