Plan Your Dream Wedding at The Inn at Oneonta: Northern Kentucky’s Hidden Gem

When it comes to finding the perfect wedding venue, couples often find themselves torn between two competing priorities – the desire for a unique, one-of-a-kind setting and the practicality of hosting their celebration close to home. Fortunately, in the heart of Northern Kentucky, just 20 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, stands a venue that effortlessly checks both of those boxes: The Inn at Oneonta.

Nestled along the banks of the picturesque Ohio River, The Inn at Oneonta is a hidden gem that has defied the test of time. Originally part of a small river town, this three-story brick mansion was the sole survivor of the devastating Flood of 1937, which wiped out the rest of the town. While Oneonta never rebuilt, the Inn continued to welcome railroad passengers and steamboat travelers along the river, preserving its rich history.

Today, The Inn at Oneonta has been lovingly restored, blending its historic charm with modern amenities to create an unparalleled wedding destination. Spanning 25 lush acres, the property offers couples endless opportunities to craft a celebration that is as unique as their love story.

Picturesque Ceremony Locations
When it comes to your ceremony, The Inn at Oneonta provides breathtaking options to choose from. For an intimate gathering, you can exchange vows in the property’s on-site chapel, complete with beautiful stained glass windows and classic wooden pews. Alternatively, the riverside gazebo offers a serene and spacious setting for larger ceremonies, allowing your guests to soak in the tranquil river views as you say “I do.”

Elegant Receptions
After the ceremony, your wedding reception will take place in the Inn’s high-peaked cathedral tent, filled with elegant lighting and soft, flowing drapes. This stunning space can accommodate up to 350 guests, ensuring ample room for dinner, dancing, and celebrating late into the night. The tent’s open-air design also allows your guests to seamlessly flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces, encouraging them to explore the Inn’s beautifully landscaped grounds.

Overnight Accommodations For Weekend Rentals
As the festivities wind down, your closest friends and family can retreat to the Inn’s charming on-site accommodations. With 12 guest rooms spread across the Main House, Guest House, and Cottage, there’s ample space to host your entire wedding party. Each room is uniquely decorated, blending the property’s historic character with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable and memorable stay.

Endless Exploration Opportunities
While your wedding day will undoubtedly be the highlight of your time at The Inn at Oneonta, the property offers endless opportunities for you and your guests to explore and create lasting memories. Take a leisurely stroll along the winding walking trails, admiring the stunning river views and lush landscaping. Challenge your loved ones to a game of pool or classic arcade games in the custom-built train station. Or simply relax on the patio, sipping cocktails and enjoying quality time together.
