Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Tucked away in the city’s desirable West End neighborhood, this inviting inn is comprised of two historic residences that have been painstakingly restored and outfitted with all the modern amenities required for a luxurious, comfortable experience.
  • Greet guests with a welcome cocktail on the wraparound porch of the Ludlow House, then shift to your lush courtyard ceremony beneath ancient oaks. Continue the celebration here for an al fresco reception under the stars, or opt for a grand tented affair.
  • The stately Tudor-style Shaffner Inn can host gracious indoor gatherings that flow between its elegant banquet room, parlor, and dining room, with additional space on the romantic back patio and charming glass-enclosed porch.
