Beautiful atmosphere and exceptional service

From the moment my husband and I first visited Glenerin Inn, we fell in love. The venue had a quaint charm and elegance. On the wedding day, it looked even more phenomenal with the flowers and decors. We were truly able to have a dream weddingnat Glenerin Inn.

Not only was the venue beautiful, but all the staff at Glenerin Inn were dedicated, eager to help, and willing to accommodate our requests. The three representatives who I communicated with the most (Maurizio, Faye, Norman) made the wedding planning process smooth. Glenerin Inn's team truly went above and beyond to ensure that our special day was nothing short of perfect.

On our wedding day, everything was executed flawlessly, and our guests were in awe of the exquisite surroundings. We received countless compliments from our guests about the venue.

My husband and I are immensely grateful for the memories created at Glenerin Inm, and we will cherish them for a lifetime.

Fabulous party venue and accommodations

I confirmed my future daughter in laws Bridal Shower at the Glenerin inn, in the Evan’s room ( dining room). Gorgeous lighting, decor, natural lighting, windows, space for 40-50 people and includes a patio.
I first worked with Maurizio, and he is very respectful and accommodating, to set the date and which room is best suited for the event.
I was then in contact with Faye from catering, who was also very accommodating and always responded quickly to my many questions and last minute changes.
The day of my event, my contact was Randy in catering, who was very attentive and made sure the luncheon event went so smoothly. Even later in the evening when we were in the bar for dinner, Randy was still checking in on us. We were all very impressed with Randy!
I was very happy hosting my event at the Glenerin Inn and should I host another event I will not hesitate to go there again.
We stayed in 3 Luxury suites later that evening and we were all very happy with the decor and attention to detail. But most of all the small comfortable sitting areas in our room, so we could chat all together in one room.
The other staff in general was very attentive and accommodating including Nick as a server as well as Jason in the bar.
Thank you for an awesome event!

Hidden Gem!

The Glenerin Inn was the perfect spot for our wedding. We had 80 guests, so the size was perfect for this venue - the outside reception was beautiful and the building is full of old charm and character. The team was great about answering all of our questions, and the manager working the night of our wedding was outstanding (thank you again Bryan!). We wanted the feeling of being outside the city without making our guests travel, and this place delivered!

Perfect wedding at a charming historic inn

We just had our wedding at the Glenerin Inn and Spa and it was a dream come true. The reception hall, dance room, hotel rooms for getting ready, ceremony deck and photography grounds made our wedding perfect. The charm is breath-taking and the staff is incredibly helpful. I can't recommend them enough. Only thing I would say to be aware of is that there are some miscommunications and disconnect between hotel bookings and wedding bookings, so just double check they align.

The Glenerin Inn went above and beyond to help us host the perfect wedding!

Where do we even begin? From the first day we even contacted the Glenerin Inn to set up a consultation, Maurizo and Faye have been nothing but supportive and worked tirelessly to make our wedding vision a reality for us. Having seen this process through to the end, we can honestly say our wedding turned out absolutely perfect, and so much of this was because of them.

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!

Beautiful Venue and overall worth it

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this venue including an out of towner's brunch the following morning. The venue is beautiful and we wouldn't have asked for a nicer space. The person we were in contact with the most Faye did a good job of making sure all our questions were answered promptly and did her best to accommodate any wishes we did have. The individual coordinating the wedding on the day of did a good job of making sure everything went smoothly. We enjoyed ourselves that night however there were some challenges in working with the venue that we think others should be aware of going forward. First off the venue would not assist in moving chairs that were not their own or if they had chair covers on them. We had rented chavari chairs as we did not like the look of their standard chair. Because they wouldn't move them we had to find a chair vendor who was willing to stay and flip the chairs from the ceremony space to the reception space which ended up costing additional money. Second we were told at our last in person meeting (about a month before our wedding) that there would be another event happening in our ceremony space until 3pm. Our ceremony was set to start at 5 and guests would be arriving before then. This gave us only 1.5 hours to get our ceremony space ready with all our chairs and flowers. This was not enough time. They didn't give us any warning that they would have an event there that same day that close to our start time. We were also told it was a baby shower when in fact it was another wedding and therefore was challenging to get people out of the room to set everything up. We had to hire additional staff to meet this tight window of set up. Due to the tight time we ended up delaying our start time. Though there were these challenges we got rave review on how good the food was and how beautiful the venue was. The staff did a great job however our wedding planning said that she was constantly assisting the staff with cleaning up so I am unsure how much they were able to handle our party of 96 without this additional assistance. Overall we had a great wedding and thank everyone for all their hard work.

Book your wedding here!

I heard about the Glenerin Inn from my florist as I had never been there before. It is truly a GTA hidden wedding venue gem! Once my now-husband and I visited, we knew we wanted to have our wedding there. We booked it with less than 2 months until our day, as they still had availability on some week days, so we opted for the least popular day of the week and have no regrets. During early 2023, the whole Inn went through a renovation and the entire place is stunning. Our wedding was on a Monday (yes, Monday!) in July, and was a lunch wedding with only our very immediate family (less than 30 people). Maurizio and Marissa helped us throughout the process and were both attentive, understanding, and quick to respond. The prices are unbelievably reasonable, and there are no hidden costs. Our final invoice was literally room bookings, food, and drinks (plus gratuity and taxes of course).
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!

We just had our wedding and couldn't be happier with choosing the Glenerin Inn for our ceremony and reception. The bridal/getting ready suite was massive, and really helped that we could do our entire day in one spot. The outdoor patio and reception space was perfect, nicely shaded for the ceremony and beautiful large space for the reception. The food was delicious and loved the flexibility in bringing our own desserts. We used their preferred vendor for florals and DJ and it was the perfect choice, they knew exactly where to go and get everything set up quickly.
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!!

Absolutely Stunning!

Our guests were overwhelmed at this beautiful setting for both our ceremony and reception. The team at Glenerin Inn from Faye the Event Coordinator, to the ladies in the spa for hair and makeup were amazing but Maurizio was spectacular in anticipating everything we could want or need and the things we didn't know we wanted, even bringing us a beverage during our photo shoot! We are still getting comments from guests thanking for inviting them to our posh event. Thank you Glenerinn for making our day so magnificant.

Great day for our wedding

We had our wedding on Sunday March 01, 2020 at 1030 am and are very happy we were able to get married at the Glenerin Inn and Spa. We loved the location and everything was amazing. All the staff that were apart of our special day made everything run so smoothly that there was not one hick up or anything that went wrong.
All our guests, my husband and my self, really enjoyed the food that we had that day. We had the chicken at lunch time and it was hot for everyone when it was served. They were so accommodating too for those that had food allergies.
My husband and I are planning on going back to celebrate our one year anniversary next year, as it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
