Elopement Packages

Picture yourselves starting your new adventure together by our woodland gazebo, accompanied by the sound of the nearby babbling brook. Alternatively you can say your vows on the front porch of our historic inn, on our rear terrace that's adjacent to our fountain or perhaps within our cozy Inn lounge. With so many stunning locations both outdoors and indoors to choose from, finding the perfect spot for capturing that special moment has never been easier. Elopements are our specialty so leave the planning and the stressful details to us and just focus on having an amazing and memory-filled experience at our romantic inn. Our maximum wedding guest capacity is 10 and that's in addition to yourselves who will be accommodated within our honeymoon suite.

Minimally we require a 2 night stay at the inn for any guests wishing to stay during the summer/autumn months (call us to discuss your options for off-season stays)

A daily breakfast is included with each room reservation and our dining facilities are limited to the number of staying guests. Because of this, only overnight guests can be catered for at breakfast.

Regardless of the above, we will waive the minimum age requirement for any children of the wedding couple.

New York State Wedding Requirements

Any two eligible adults (over 18 years of age) may get legally married in New York.

The process to obtain a New York marriage license is easy and does not require blood tests. There is a 24 hour waiting period after the license is issued before the ceremony.

A marriage license can be obtained from any New York Town Clerk and is valid for 60 days.

Both parties need to be present and provide proof of identity.

If a previous marriage existed, an original copy of divorce papers or a death certificate must be provided.

We highly recommend calling the Urbana Town Clerk for an appointment to apply for your marriage license - 607-569-3743. The appointment usually lasts about 45 minutes.
