It was opened as a hotel in 1997 when it was taken over by Diane Buchanan.

    Such an amazing experience

    We got married at the Union Bank Inn on August 22, 2020. I cannot say enough amazing things about our experience with them! We planned everything within a few months as we had to downsize and rebook our wedding due to COVID. Our event coordinator, Graham, was an absolutely pleasure to work with! He was so accommodating and took everything we said into consideration! They planned such an amazing day for us! The set up of the room was STUNNING! Like beyond my wildest dreams stunning! They made the whole day flow so smoothly and the food was DELICIOUS! We got so many compliments from our guests about how much they loved our wedding! And we had an amazing time too! Not to mention there were some great places within walking distance for photos which was great! I would highly recommend the Union Bank Inn as a wedding venue, just so beautiful and amazing staff, couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding!

    Overall Pleasant Experience

    The room that we wanted for our wedding became unavailable due to renovations after we booked it. This was disappointing, however Union Bank Inn accommodated us in another room. It was not as nice as the initial choice, but was acceptable. The staff did a great job on the day of the event itself, accommodating the deliveries from our vendors and setting up the room for both ceremony and reception exactly to our specifications.

    We booked our 85 guest wedding with the Union Bank Inn and couldn't be happier with the experience! The room is beautiful and doesn't require much (if any) added decor. The catering manager was always available to discuss details, provide suggestions and reassure naive wedding planners that everything was going to be perfect! Staying in one of their beautiful guest rooms was the perfect end to a perfect night.

    The event went off smoothly minus a few hiccups of time.management (on my behalf). Union bank was gorgeous and their variety of napkin and table cloth colors available is definitely what set them apart from the other locations when it came to price, one less thing to rent. The event manager did switch in the middle of planning the wedding but she caught on quickly with what we wanted. Catering was delicious if not a little too pricey, flexible with sauces for the most part.

    Dealing with the Union Bank Inn to coordinate my Reception really made the process enjoyable. Their catering manager is very easy to deal with and is very professional.

    The room was elegently decorated and the staff did a very good job of delivering the food to the tables.

    It was all that I hoped for!

    Kristina and the staff @ UBI were fantastic. Part of the reason, my husband & I chose UBI was because of Kristina. From our first meeting with her, she left us with the impression she was professional, knowledgable and capable of handling any issues to ensure our day was perfect. We would definitely recommend UBI!
