Outdoor Wedding Venue Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati

The Inn at Oneonta 

Welcome to The Inn at Oneonta 

Outdoor wedding venue Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky

Welcome to the historic Inn at Oneonta in Melbourne, Kentucky. We can’t wait to share with you the charm and sophistication of Cincinnati’s most unique venue.

Once part of a small river town, The Inn has truly withstood the test of time and was the only structure in the Town of Oneonta that defied the Flood of 1937. While the town never rebuilt, the Inn continued to remain a popular stop for railroad passengers and steamboat travelers along the Ohio River. Over the years, the three-story brick mansion has been restored and still emulates the amazing heritage of life on the Ohio River.

Take a stroll on one of our many walking trails, connect with friends or family on the patio, take in the stunning river views, and play pool and arcade games in our in our custom-built train station.
