    Breath taking weekend

    We had to move our date with Covid and Becky and her team were absolutely accommodating. Becky even coordinated a horse and carriage for
    me after our original ghosted us!
    The general manager was an absolute star. She made us feel so welcome. From the minute we checked in we were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief and just unwind.
    We checked in early on Friday, set up then spent the evening eating dinner on the beautiful porch with our closest friends and family.
    The rooms were beautiful, the Billards room was the highlight of the night.

    Saturday was so easy. The whole upstairs was set up for hair and makeup. We got to relax with our family without having to rush around anywhere.
    Everything ran smoothly and on time. Our guests dietary restrictions were accommodated very well. Everyone had an absolute blast. The guests loved being able to roam around the grounds and the food was excellent.
    I cant even begin to express how magical our stay was and I’m forever greatful for the level of hospitality they provided.

    Wedding in August 2022

    Good Morning Becky
    We wanted to thank you for a beautiful, fun filled weekend at the Mackenzie Inn on August 20th, 2022. The wedding was gorgeous! So many compliments on the ceremony! That is just the perfect setting under those tall trees! The whole venue is just very cool and we appreciated everything .
    You and your staff made the bride and grooms' wedding weekend everything they dreamed it would be. Thank you for ALL your patience
    Day 3, Sunday morning, was amusing watching everyone drag themselves outta there. They obviously had a great time! LOL
    If I could add one piece of advice it would be to purchase the bigger country breakfast for Saturday morning and have the included continental breakfast on Sunday morning.
    Thanks Again,
    The Smalley family

    Perfect wedding at the perfect venue

    Things happen for a reason and when we lost our first venue during the pandemic it must've been because we were meant to find the SWMI. We wanted to having a "destination wedding" without having our guests have to fly out of the country to celebrate with us. Choosing the SWMI was the best decision we made, not only because of its charm and uniqueness, but also because of the staff. Becky and Flora took care of us and made us feel very comfortable with everything. Becky was super responsive and always did her best to accommodate and requests we had. Our friends and family loved that we had the whole place to ourselves for the weekend and it will definitely be a wedding to remember !

    Could not be more perfect!

    From our first visit to the Sir William Mackenzie Inn we knew we had stumbled onto someplace special. Not just because it was a beautiful property or the house had an extravagant yet cozy feel, but because of the wonderful people that ran it and the truly unique experience they were offering. This was a place that wanted us to have the chance to spend as much time with our loved ones as possible and not feel rushed at either end of the event. No other place that we looked at offered us the place for the whole weekend, nor did they have as much flexibility in when we can bring things for set up and when we had to take things down. The majority of our guests were not from Canada and as a couple we were stressing about how to maximize the time with our loved ones, as the day itself we knew would fly by. It absolutely made it for us to be able to start our celebrations with the intimate dinner on Friday, get a slow and relaxed start to our Saturday and still be laughing and talking about everything at breakfast the next morning.
    We were so well taken care of throughout the weekend and the planning process by Allison, Becky and the rest of their wonderful team. They have a wonderfully calming, warm and helpful approach, and we can definitely thank them for how little stress was involved. Allison was almost like a wedding planner to us, sharing so much knowledge, recommendations for vendors in the area, practical advice and backup plans. This is a wonderful team who you can tell do this out of a passion and not just as a business.
    One of the things we were most grateful for is that we were also able to bring our dog, Bingo along to stay with us and be part of the day. It may seem like a small thing, but for crazy pet parents like us, having him stay elsewhere would have been such a stress.
    Though something is always supposed to go wrong on the day, I can honestly say that everything was perfect and went according to plan, with no small part to them keeping things on track (and occasionally keeping us on track!). The food and service was spectacular, the grounds fantastic, everything in all of the rooms were gorgeous and pristine. There is so much character and hospitality in this place that our guests were in awe!
    Allison, Becky, we along with our guests are eternally grateful for this weekend, this perfect day that all of us will remember and treasure. We couldn’t have imagined it any better, thank you for working with us, supporting us, and sharing this day with us.

    We had our wedding at sir william mackenzie inn in Sept 2017. Everything about this venue is absolutely gorgeous. The food is amazing. I loved being able to stay on-site and have the ceremony and reception right there. Jeremy was also incredibly helpful and accommodating. We cannot thank them enough!!
