Showers

Let us take care of everything but your guest list

Showers are our specialty, our elegant inn needs no decorating except your personal touches as we are limited due to the historic nature of the inn with any type of decoration that could harm the integrity or original workmanship of the inn itself. We do not charge for the function itself but we do require that every guest order “The Duchess” or one of our other shower packages which is priced at $26-36pp and our minimum guest requirement is 20.

All packages are served accordingly on decorative 3 tiered cake stands and we provide all linens, plate-ware and flatware on our fancy tea settings. 

Our tea room can comfortably hold up to 26 and our Carriage House can be used for larger groups up to 60, whichever option works best for your group. In addition, we can also offer mimosas and wine if desired either through cash bar or ticket basis. We suggest coming by the inn to see its’ elegance and offerings! Have out of town guests coming for your event, have them stay here and book directly through us at a 10% discount! A non-refundable $300 deposit is required to hold your date and therefore applied to your final bill.

Want to do it all yourself? You can now rent our function space in the new Carriage House for $200/hr. Some restrictions do apply.
