On the evening of the winter solstice, we celebrated our son and new daughter's wedding at the Boscawen. Everything was perfect! We visited the inn and met Johnathan and Judy back in March, 2013 and felt the kids had made the right choice then. And they surely had. From the time we arrived two nights before the wedding to the moment we left, we were in friendly, capable and professional hands.
The inn truly is ideal for a small-ish wedding. There were about 45 of us in total and we filled the inn over two nights. The inn was beautifully decorated and an awful lot of painting and redecorating of many rooms had been done since our previous visit. All our guests loved the spot! We held the actual ceremony in front of the fireplace in the downstairs parlour. As soon as the ceremony was over, Johnathan and Judy were pouring champagne as waiters circulated with hors d'oeuvres. The inn-leepers were dressed smartly, and I, for one greatly appreciated how they went about their business - the business of making their guests welcome.
Everything we asked about over the months prior relating to the wedding was tended to, or suggestions given.
The catererer for the Boscawen Inn is Sweet and Saucey. The meal that Mary Ann and her staff prepared for us was truly the best. A little biased here, but I don't think I have been to another wedding with better food than this one. From the hors d'oeuvres offered at the after ceremony reception ( four delicious choices) through to a late supper of seafood chowder ( we are in Lunenburg after all) every dish was well presented and served at the right temperature. We had a parsnip soup, four additional appetizers including lobster bisque shots, and filet mignon which were all totally yummy! And being a few days prior to Christmas, a lovely egg nog bread pudding rounded off dinner. The service was exceptional, swift and attentive. I truly can't say enough about the catererer or the inn-keepers.
Bottom line - If I ever decided to get married again ( to the same woman that I married 43 years ago) it would be there - it was that great!
Thank you so very much to all concerned! And prospective brides and grooms - Just Say Yes To The Inn!
