What an amazing venue. We wanted an all-in-one type of venue to make things more simple and seamless. It was perfect for us. They have ample rooms available for out of town guests, a spa on-site where you can get get a bite to eat, get a manicure and makeup done. The food at the ... View more reception was amazing. They make everything from scratch. The ceremony site is very well maintained and was so beautiful for our outdoor Fall wedding. Our wedding co-ordinator was very helpful with answering all our questions and letting us know the timing of events. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We got so many compliments on how gorgeous the venue was and how delicious the food was. I couldn't imagine having been married anywhere else!

Strathmere is a fantastic venue. Very very professional--it's clear they know exactly what they're doing. Highly recommended.
I would recommend this as a venue, only if you value convenience above all else. The fact that the decor, food, some accommodations, and bar service were all provided by Strathmere made it very convenient and simple to plan our wedding. The food is fantastic! The space is ... View more beautiful! The staff were quick to move things when it rained. All that said, the accommodations were very disappointing. Our room (for the bride and groom) was supposed to have a king-sized bed. What we found was two single beds (of different heights) pushed together. It was incredibly uncomfortable and a pretty lousy way to end our night. We're still not sure what the day-of coordinator was supposed to do. My bridesmaids and I were told to wait in the room where we were getting ready until our coordinator came to get us. She never showed up and when we gave up on waiting, she jokingly asked why it had taken us so long to get there! She didn't cue the DJ, or the MC for anything as she said she would. It would have been better had we expected not to have a coordinator there. For convenience, food, and location it's perfect. But there are some definite areas for improvement.
We absolutely loved our time at Strathmere. We had our ceremony, reception and wedding night at the Inn. On a rainy day they flawlessly moved our ceremony inside and transitioned it back to the reception room. The Inn was the perfect location with a variety of rooms available for ... View more for all guests to enjoy (ie. Games room, bar, lounge, patio, quite room with tables). The service was excellent, my husband and I never wanted for anything. Complimentary breakfast the next day was great- we only wish we could have slept in past 10am the next day!
