Perfect wedding at a charming historic inn
The Glenerin Inn went above and beyond to help us host the perfect wedding!
When we initially set up our consultation to view the grounds, etc. they were super up front about the costs, and how it would work better for our budget to have an off season wedding if we weren’t set on a particular date. We looked at a couple other venues but nothing was as cozy or as inclusive as the Glenerin Inn seemed to be at that time (over 2 years ago!). We decided the Glenerin Inn was the perfect spot for our intimate wedding. We only had 50 people so we decided to have both our ceremony and our reception in the Evans Room to keep the feeling more cozy. Of course, logistically this took a little more planning to make sure that the day went smoothly with the room turnaround during the cocktail hour. Throughout the entire planning process, they allowed us to come look at the venue whenever we wanted to — to take measurements of the room, to see how the room would be set up for our ceremony and for our reception, etc. Every email we sent them, no matter how small the question, was always responded to within 24 hours and they always gave us a detailed answer which helped relieve us of so much stress during the planning process, knowing that Faye and Maurizio were in our corner.
As the wedding date approached, Faye sat down with us in person to walk us through how the day would and told us about all the things that we would need to think about regarding the smaller details — decor, table linen colours, etc. They were super flexible with all of our requests too. For example we wanted to line the aisle with flower petals, and they gave us many ideas on how to prepare them for easy removal, or if we preferred we could just leave them scattered around the room during our reception. They were above and beyond accommodating for our guests as well to ensure everyone attending our wedding would enjoy the experience as much as we did. They willingly catered to food allergies and requests, including gluten free options, vegan options, and allergy awareness. One of my guests who is allergic to sunflower seeds told me after dinner that she had asked if the bread rolls had been in contact with the allergen. My guest was very impressed that the staff took the entire basket away and promptly returned with a new basket of plain white rolls for that table to accommodate her allergy. This made us super happy to hear because not only were they accommodating of our requests, but also of our guests, even last minute ones like that.
The venue itself is clean, organized, and super cozy. We brought all our decorations the night before the wedding so we wouldn’t forget anything. They allowed us to store any heavy items in a secure locked room so that when it came time to set up, everything would be in one spot ready to go. We had planned to help them set up the venue but were pleasantly surprised that the staff took care of everything and we didn’t have to lift a finger. Everything looked absolutely perfect and we could not have done a better job ourselves. This allowed us to mingle with our guests more and took a lot of hassle off of our plates so we weren’t stressing about minor things like that. They turned the room around efficiently during the cocktail hour so it was ready for dinner service, and once again they absolutely nailed the decor and was exactly how we imagined it. They even took care of all the cleaning at the end of the night for us as well so we could say goodbye to our guests and allowed us the chance to relax a bit as well.
Maurizio was on site throughout the entire duration of our wedding event and we have to give him a super huge shout out! He was absolutely awesome! He was super attentive, available all evening for us if we had any little things to ask or mention, was super friendly and helpful to our guests, and was consistently checking in for our feedback on things throughout the night to make sure that our wedding went exactly how we wanted it to. The staff that worked the night of our wedding were also super friendly and accommodating as well. The staff of the Glenerin Inn truly went out of their way to make our wedding an absolutely spectacular and magical night. Our wedding was truly perfect thanks to the Glenerin Inn. Thank you!
The Inn is flexible for outdoor or indoor ceremonies. They have a Spa on sight so hair & makeup comes easily.

Beautiful Venue and overall worth it
Our contact was Faye Kotyak. She was very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, and helpful. We deferred to experience quite a few times, and were never disappointed. We went back and forth with her dozens of times by e-mail during the planning process and she was always quick to reply.
One of the biggest reasons we picked this venue was because of the grounds. It is an old, historic estate with stone building set against the lovely greenery in the Credit Valley. We had exclusive use of the grounds for photos indoors and outside, and didn’t need special permits.
Our dinner, dancing, and speeches took place in the ‘Credit Valley Room,’ which is an intimate venue with room for only 90 people. We went with 9 round tables of ten. It felt cozy, but never crowded.
We were very impressed by the service and food. The serving staff were very efficient and seamless. They worked very hard to serve and clean-up our four-course dinner and keep our drinks full, but we hardly noticed them. The food itself was great, especially the cheesecake. Steak knives would have been helpful for the sirloin entree.
On a slightly different note, if you do stay overnight at the Inn, you should definitely enjoy the brunch the morning after!
Book your wedding here!
We were able to have our ceremony on their outdoor deck which overlooks a forest and had just the right amount of shade. After that, there were so many beautiful spots along the property to take family/couples photos as their gardens are beautiful and the buildings all have beautiful stonework. If it had been raining, the inside of the building is so nice too.
You can not go wrong booking here! Compared to similar places in the GTA, you will pay a lot less, and have such great memories of you big day!
Fantastic Venue. Everything we wanted and more!
All the staff were lovely to work with, and big shout out to Faye and Maurizio for all the help the past year planning our wedding. All our guests had a great time!!
