We had our reception here 07/28/18. When people complimented us on our wedding, all we could say was, "We didn't do much... We just chose an amazing venue! " Seriously, Old Lantern took care of ... Read more everything! Julie and Lisa were professional and timely throughout the process, which was vital because we were planning our wedding from a distance. We especially appreciated the personal attention Lisa gave to our parents when they came to visit. Old Lantern was upfront and honest about their charges, no hidden fees or surprises and we could trust them at every turn to give us the best advice for the wedding we wanted. They worked with our father-in-law to figure the alcohol offerings we wanted. I was absolutely blown away by the personal attention we received the day of. Lisa was truly, genuinely excited about our wedding and our family, and enthusiastically joined in the joy. She took care of every little incident that popped up calmly, from my bustle to a medical emergency to us showing up half an hour early. It was so reassuring to have her on top of all that was happening during the reception. My maid of honor kept asking, "Who is doing this, this, etc.?" and it felt SO good to say, our venue's got it! Several of our guests kept asking, "Did you eat yet?" Lisa made sure that we were served so quickly and quietly that people hadn't even noticed and it allowed us to say hi to almost all our guests (165 guests). Our wedding party stayed at the Inn, which was really lovely and we took advantage of the living room hangout space--and the breakfast was truly great! The challenges of our wedding: 165 guests, planned from across the country, ceremony in a different place were totally overcome by Old Lantern's excellent service. I was initially concerned that there was only one DJ option that they heavily recommended (Top Hat), but we ended up very happy with their work the day of! Five stars there, too.

Everything we wanted and more

The Old Lantern Inn was the perfect wedding venue for us. We were looking for a rustic wedding venue within 30 minutes of Burlington and after seeing the Old Lantern Inn and hearing about everything ... Read more included in their wedding package, we knew we found the perfect spot for our wedding. Our guests made good use of the space available, playing lawn games outside, using the pool and fooseball table in the bar area, and of course occupying the dance floor. The stars were also spectacular! It was so easy to plan our event because the Old Lantern staff took care of almost everything for us, including centerpieces, a box for cards, the cake, and of course the food and bar. I was so happy to find a place with tasteful decor that would prevent me from buying one time use items. The vendors recommended by the Old Lantern were all great as well, particularly Mark, our DJ from Top Hat Entertainment. We had the perfect day and highly recommend Old Lantern!

August Wedding

I just celebrated my wedding here and I could not be happier with how wonderful it was. Julie and Lisa were amazing to work with, and the venue is stunning and cozy. They go above and beyond to make ... Read more you feel comfortable and organized during the planning process and then at home the day of. The food was also exceptional! We got so many compliments for how well things were run. If you are looking to throw a fun party in Vermont, this is the place. We also stayed at the Inn and it was awesome. Clean with great breakfast in the morning and Lisa is an amazing host! Highly recommend!
