I cannot recommend the Inn at Oneonta enough for any couple in the Cincinnati area looking for a unique outdoor venue! The owners, Travis, and Michelle are amazing. They are quick to respond to every question and have the best suggestions to make sure your day as perfect as possible. And they are INCREDIBLE cooks! The food for our wedding was off the charts. And the service was top-notch. All my guests said they never had to wait more than 5 minutes at the bar and my husband, and I were treated like royalty the day of our wedding, with a personal server to assist us throughout the night. Please do yourself and favor and check out this venue! You will not be disappointed by the owners or the breathtaking views of the Ohio River just feet from the dance floor.
I cannot say enough good things about The Inn at Oneonta! This venue had our guests leaving in awe! Being perfectly positioned on the Ohio River, the venue is laid out perfectly to facilitate a wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and beautiful reception all with different beautifully scenic views. The staff handled guest arrival, guest movement through different parts of the wedding night, supported the vendors and made my husband & I feel extremely loved & special the whole night. Michelle & Travis gave us a ton of creative ideas and let us really create the wedding we’ve always dreamed of. Thank you! Would recommend to anyone, anywhere!

I cannot say enough about this venue and Michelle and Travis!!! My daughter’s wedding this past weekend was everything we hoped for and much more! The venue itself is breathtaking. So many great photo ops and there was a spot for everything. The views and grounds are gorgeous, and we loved the bridal cottage! On top of that the food was amazing. We got so many compliments! It was delicious and hot and served quickly. They kept the bar line moving- no waits and everything was organized and so smooth. Travis and Michelle went out of their way to MAKE SURE we were taken care of and had everything we needed. Just great, great people! Thank you!! ❣️
I cannot say enough about Travis, Michelle, and their staff. I read the reviews on the knot before booking and thought they might be too good to be true, but I promise they will deliver. From the first call with Michelle to the last email she sent me, everything was kind, detailed and super professional. They think of everything, and it will put you at ease! We had a last-minute issue with our DJ and Michelle and Travis went above and beyond to try and help. Travis even brought me and my husband a cocktail before the ceremony to calm our nerves. The venue itself is stunning and every guest commented how unique and beautiful it was. I promise you won’t regret booking the Inn at Oneonta.
What a gem I found! Finding my wedding venue is the most stressful part. When I was looking, I was determined to find a big venue where I haven’t been to too many weddings. My mom showed me Inn at Oneonta for my first venue visit and I was sold. I also live in San Antonio and Michelle and Travis made it so easy to plan from far away. They are extremely organized and truly customize your event to what you want it to be. Their staff is so friendly and helpful. On the plus side, the venue is so gorgeous you really don’t need to spend any money on decorations. The place does that job for you. I could go on and on about this venue. If you are looking for a venue that truly cares and gives you the best experience, look no further! Thank you, Travis, and Michelle, for everything. I still am in disbelief that our wedding happened because it was so perfect. You all made our special day unforgettable.

This was one of the best days of my life watching my daughter get married at this beautiful venue. It could not have been more perfect. Travis and Michelle provided everything necessary to ensure this wedding went smoothly. We rented the property for the entire weekend. Our rehearsal dinner held in train station. Wedding ceremony overlooking the river. Wedding reception with 300 guests. The staff was exceptional. The food catered by be creative was unique from most wedding food. The grounds and the weather added a beautiful dimension to this special day. I would highly recommend this venue. They can accommodate anything.
We had an amazing day at the Inn at Oneonta! The beautiful natural landscape made for the perfect backdrop for our ceremony and reception. In combination with the excellent service from Michelle, Travis, and the Be Creative Catering team all of what I imagined my wedding day would be like was exceeded!
This place is incredible. Excellent food, great communication, beautiful location, impeccable service, very professional management, and a lovely attitude to boot. Most of the guests to our October wedding had never been there before and were blown away with the view, the amenities, and the whole experience. We got so many excited compliments about everything. The staff is so on the ball, fixing any little problems ahead of time so that everything goes smoothly. I honestly never felt like I needed a wedding planner or coordinator when Oneonta had my back. I literally cannot recommend them enough!
Travis and Michelle at The Inn at Oneonta are some of the best vendors I have ever worked with. They consistently go above and beyond to make sure your day runs smoothly. It was like having two new friends and a day of coordinator all in one. They are incredibly communicative and really do support you throughout the process. The venue grounds are immaculate, and provided the most unique and beautiful wedding experience I have encountered. My guests and bridal party RAVED about the venue and I think were a little jealous that I got to have my wedding there. I can’t say enough nice things about the owners and the venue itself. Five stars simply isnt enough.
My best advice to engaged couples looking for a venue that come across this page is to simply stop looking and have your big day at the Inn. First of all, I highly recommend renting the property for the entire weekend. Being able to stay on location was very convenient for us and our bridal party. You do not have to worry about anyone showing up late day of, everyone is already on site. The property is also massive, there is a large main house with plenty of space, a secondary guest house with 2 floors of space, the train station which has a pool table/golden tee inside, AND the additional honeymoon suite. Honestly, how many weddings have you ever been to where after the rehearsal dinner and or reception can family/close friends hang out onsite to have a night cap? My guess is none. All of our close friends said how amazing that was to have. 2nd, Travis and Michelle are top notch experts. They are very experienced and will try their best to accommodate any wish you can think of. They will also be very upfront with you about an idea that won’t work citing plenty of reasons and examples why from experience…listen to them! Other than it being a little cold, our weekend was everything we could have imagined, we can’t thank Travis, Michelle and their staff enough.
Travis and Michelle have a beautiful setting/venue with many ways to personalize your wedding with their help. They are knowledgeable/available/patient/caring. We had rehearsal dinner/wedding/reception all at the same place with wedding party able to stay onsite. As the mom of the groom- we felt very confident that all wants/needs of our son and his bride would be carried out by this incredible team!
I cannot say enough good things about this venue and the wonderful owners Michelle and Travis. From day one they were attentive, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. Despite some rain throughout the day, we had the absolute best day and we truly couldn’t have done it without Michelle and Travis and their team. This venue is absolutely stunning, I knew I wanted to have our reception here before we even got engaged and it did not disappoint. When we were planning our wedding, we had two must haves: to have a fun reception and to have really great food at the reception. Travis and his team make all the food, which is absolutely delicious, and takes one less thing off your plate by not having to hire a separate vendor for catering. You can also have your ceremony at the Inn and even though we did not I can only imagine how beautiful the ceremony is there! I can’t thank the Inn at Oneonta enough for helping make our wedding the best day. To any couple trying to pick a place for your wedding day, Inn at Oneonta should definitely be on the top of your list!
Our wedding was everything! Oneonta is beautiful, and unlike any venue you could imagine. From the beautiful ceremony overlooking the river, to the one-of-a-kind reception, we could ask for nothing more. Michelle and Travis were so easy to work with and made all our dreams come true. We were treated like royalty and would recommend Oneonta to all future brides and grooms!
After saying “yes!”, booking this venue was the best and easiest decision of our wedding planning. Michelle and Travis were so wonderful to work with and made sure the day went beautifully and smoothly. We did not have a wedding coordinator, and Michelle and Travis helped make sure our planning was on track and complete before the big day, and I so appreciated that. The venue was all people could talk about during and after the wedding! I could not imagine getting married anywhere else. The ceremony area on the river is picturesque, but the entire property is stunning. I can’t recommend this place enough!
The Inn at Oneonta is the most unique and magical wedding venue. If you are looking for something that is unique, this is your place. It has so much to offer, the beautiful scenery, working with the owners (Travis and Michelle) was a breeze. They took all the stress away and everything was flawless. We couldn’t be happier that we had the privilege to host our wedding there.
Michelle and Travis-where do I even begin. Let’s start with this is the most gorgeous outdoor venue. Well kept, clean, and landscaping that is out of this world. Food was nothing short of spectacular (highly recommend the pesto salmon and beef tenderloin). Very responsive to emails. Their staff is top notch always making sure people have what they needed. We literally didn’t have to lift a finger because they always had what we needed- where we needed it. It’s worth every single penny.
Travis and Michelle are the absolute best! Despite my 50,000 questions and emails they answered every single question, gave the best suggestions and advice, and made my daughter’s wedding reception and all activities at the Inn flawless. They are kind, caring, and just as excited as we were about the event. Our families stayed at the Inn for the entire wedding weekend, and I highly recommend it! We held the rehearsal dinner out at the Inn and brunch the day after the reception as well. Every detail was taken care of, and I am forever grateful. I would recommend this venue one hundred times over. Outstanding!!!
Travis and Michelle were fantastic through every step of the way! They made sure that our wedding ran smoothly and fulfilled any last-minute requests that we thought of! They were so flexible with our unique timeline and so friendly and professional during all conversations!
The Inn at Oneonta, and Travis and Michelle, made my dreams come true! This place is stunning. It feels like its own little town. My guests kept coming up to me all night and telling me how beautiful the space was. It was so nice to have the ceremony and reception in one area, but also separate spaces. We booked the Inn for the entire weekend so that we could have our wedding party spend the night in the houses Friday and Saturday night. It was so nice to just wake up on Saturday with all my bridesmaids and relax, drink some coffee, watch the sunrise over the river and wait for hair and makeup. There is so much space to get ready!! The guys stayed in the guest house, and we were in the main house, and we never ran into each other! My husband and I stayed in the cottage the night of our wedding and it was such a cute little space that we had just to ourselves! I could go on and on about the venue itself. It’s just absolutely break taking. As for Travis and Michelle, they are awesome!! When we decided to postpone our wedding due to COVID they were so supportive and understanding. They worked with us and both of our families and quickly answered any questions we had. Their communication is clear, and they will keep in touch often over your planning period. No communication was lost in the 2.5 years of our wedding planning, which was extended a year due to COVID. My husband and I now consider Michelle and Travis friends and we are so grateful for everything they have done for us, and for dealing with us for 2.5 years!!!
