At The Four Chimneys Inn, you don’t just rent a reception hall. You and your loved ones can call the inn home for the weekend. Your overnight guests start the day with a hearty breakfast in our picturesque dining room. Enjoy cocktails under the awning on the stone patio and dinner on the courtyard. Take pictures in every nook and cranny of our eleven acre estate. Make the inn yours for the weekend.

During your reception, your guests will be welcomed with food as captivating to the eye as tantalizing to the most scrutinizing palette. Our exclusive caterer, Pangaea Catering, works with local purveyors to help you create your perfect locally inspired menu for your perfect Vermont Wedding. Butlered Hors D’oeuvres such as:

Smoked Duck Breast with Cilantro Pesto.
Southwestern Chicken Confit on a Sweet Potato Chip.
Caramelized Onion Puffs and many more just as enticing.

Entrees are plated and cooked to order sparing you from having to fuss with pre-orders. Bride favorites have included:

  • Filet Mignon on Crab Flan

Overnight Room Requirement:

Because we are a small, intimate inn, it is also necessary to book all eleven guest rooms for a two nights stay (the night prior to and the night of your event). Most importantly, this allows us to focus on your reception only; we are not distracted by serving other guests. View room rates. For brides/grooms hosting their reception at the Four Chimneys we allow the bride and groom to guarantee the rooms, but allow their friends/family to call in with their individual cards to pay for the rooms. There are some cases (for small weddings of 24-36 guests) where fewer rooms may be required.
