Located in the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York, the Sherwood Inn has been a popular wedding venue for over two centuries. With its beautiful, lakefront scenic views of Skaneateles Lake and its setting in the midst of the historic Village of Skaneateles, our beautifully restored colonial inn creates an idyllic setting for any wedding reception. The Sherwood Inn is conveniently located just 30 minutes outside of Syracuse, New York and on the edge of the Finger Lakes Wine Region.
We at the Sherwood Inn also know that wedding planning takes time. In order to assist you further, we provide information on many other wedding services you may need, from wedding cakes to transportation, florists to entertainment. The Patisserie, located in a historic carriage house behind the Sherwood Inn, makes the most delectable desserts and intricately-detailed wedding cakes. Together the Patisserie and the Sherwood Inn will make your wedding a slice above the rest.
The Sherwood Inn caters to groups both large and small, and we are confident that we will match your requirements as well as your budget. The Sherwood Inn staff provides a service ratio of more than one staff member to every twelve guests, plus the benefit of a dedicated catering director to tend to every need of the host and their wedding event.
The Sherwood Inn staff will be on hand to help you add all those personal touches that make your day one-of-a-kind. Details of our wedding menu choices (including buffet), wine list, and beverages menu are located here on our website. However, if you wish to design your own menu, our catering director would be pleased to discuss this further. The Sherwood Inn staff works with each guest from the initial wedding consultation until the final wedding planning details. We wish to ensure that the wedding of your dreams is everything you desired it would be: an unforgettable lakeside experience.
Be sure to schedule a visit to the Sherwood Inn early into your wedding planning so that we may show you our banquet and lodging facilities, introduce you to our wedding team, and discuss your wishes further.
"Picture the quintessential, historic country inn on a beautiful lake with a staff that is ready to make your day amazing! Our daughter's reception was absolutely picture perfect, a moment in time, a memory to cherish. Meredith, Meghan, and Lucinda went above and beyond with their staff to ensure that every detail was handled. We had the most relaxing time, the most delicious fare, the best cake ever (thank you, Michael!) and the most restful nights in their beautiful inn. FIVE STARS for the SHERWOOD INN. Every couple should be so lucky!" -Sharon, September 2015
"We had our wedding reception at the Sherwood Inn August 2015 for about 125 people. The staff (Meghan and Meredith) were so helpful from day one...always offering helpful suggestions and being very, very flexible. The day of went perfectly...I was able to have so much fun at our wedding knowing that they had everything under control...even with a surprise appearance from some Irish step-dancers! The food was delicious and the venue is so beautiful with the view of the summer sunset over Skaneateles Lake." -Mary, August 2015
